We found this park to be conveniently located and very clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. The Chicken Shack provided us with a yummy quick dinner. The laundry facility was nice and quick. We saw no bird poop on the grounds as others have noted. We were there during off season so there weren't many people staying there. Liked that it was close to the visitors center. Our site was a bit close to the road so we did experience some road noise but we had a spectacular view of Butte Montana's city lights at night. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

At first, I liked this KOA with its long, level 60' gravel sites and wide enough roads. But then the park starting filling up. Now I'm sandwiched tightly between rigs with perhaps 10 feet from my slideout to my neighbor's. I don't understand why they park rigs next to each other when the park isn't full. The staff is friendly and we liked their fried chicken & pie sold on site. The staff points out local attractions when you check in. The park is conveniently located close to the freeway and to local trolley tours ($) via the Chamber of Commerce next door. Park wifi worked okay. There's no cable TV but satellite would work at most sites. There's a bike trail adjoining the park but economically depressed Butte does minimal upkeep so keep your expectations low. The KOA does not charge extra for pets as an earlier reviewer incorrectly noted, except in the cabins which is understandable. We also saw almost no bird poop as another reviewer noted, and we walked the grounds a lot. Both Verizon & ATT had good signals. All in all, this is an okay stopover and about par for a KOA. We camped at Butte KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Considering there isn't a whole lot of choices in Butte this is a nice, older campground with easy in and out for an overnight stay. We stayed 2 nights because we found plenty to do in the local area. It does fill up at night because it is big rig friendly. Good food at the attached Chicken Shack and the store in the KOA has lots of items including beer and wine. The owner is a good guy and helpful if you have questions. We were there when our neighbor had their bicycles stolen from the camp site. The police said to lock everything down as it has happened before. The city bike path is adjacent to the KOA and has been a route of ingress and egress for the bad guys. There is a rash of bicycle thefts in the area. My cheapo bikes were left alone. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out Philipsburg about a 40 minute drive away. Beautiful drive and interesting town. Great brewery in town.

We were parked on the back row right next to visitor center so very convenient to walk there and also hop on trolley. Our spot was very level. A different wifi system-their own Hotspot. Started out sketchy but improved over stay. Only one computer/phone per password. Staff very nice. Did not participate in Chicken Shack located next door to office. We would definitely return here. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Trolley ride is good to get idea/history of town. Visited Butte Copper (Harrison St) store for copper items.

Now that we done with our 2+ month summer trip, I see that I either did not review this park back in July or the review got lost in the RVPR summer rush. I believe we here decades ago since I have a very old park brochure, but I have no recollection of this park. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site. The park was fairly full but did not feel crowded. There is no cable TV, but some sites (including ours) are satellite friendly. There are a variety of RV site types: FHU, W&E, 30 and/or 50 Amp, etc.) plus dozens of tent sites, 4 cabins, and over 20 RV sites designated as long term. Typical of a KOA, there is a pool and a playground. The small laundry is in the main building, but (surprisingly) the bathrooms and showers were in two other buildings away from the main office. These facilities were clean but inadequate for a park with so many tent sites. They give you a specific password for their 802.11 network that is good for only one device. This is a system I have no problem with since it seemed to make the internet more accessible for those of use who are not hogs. I'd like the park more if it were under $40. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Butte tourist office right next to the park and a Safeway about half a mile away. For a place in town, there is not much else within walking distance. I thought the prices at the Chicken Shack (in the main building) were a bit high for (mostly) fried fast food.

Level gravel sites. Nice camp store. Good Chicken shack attached to main building. A little dated. They charge extra for a pet and a third person. No senior, AAA, good Sam or AARP discounts. We camped at Butte KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites were comfortable and even. A creek on the other side of the campground is part of a nature renewal project. There were many geese in the water but none in the park. People and wildlife have to learn to live together. All hookups worked fine. Wifi was very slow and dropped the connection frequently. The pool was open but it was too cold to swim. Staff were super friendly. Laundry was clean and functional- all machines were working fine. A small cafe in the campground sold fried foods if you are too busy or tired to cook. We camped at Butte KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the World Mining Museum. Dress warm. The mine is wet and cold.

Site was a Pull Thru, WiFi worked well. As usual KOA overpriced. The one problem is the Geese are all over the park, you can not walk anywhere without stepping on bird poop. This was a real problem walking the dogs. The onsite Chicken Counter was convenient but just ok. The coconut cream pie was yummy! We will not return only because of nasty bird poop. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice level gravel pull through. Easy access from I-15/I-90, next to Butte Visitor Center. City walking paths direct from park, excellent area to walk and exercise pets. Can get Satellite from most spots. Some long term but clean and quite. Great friendly and accommodating owners. Would definitely stay here when in Butte. 45' coaches are not a problem. Watch for pothole when entering. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a nice, convenient, easy park to access. The staff was helpful and courteous. The sites level, gravel with a bit of green in between sites. The green areas needed a bit of weed whacking or mowing but it wasn’t too bad. They have a little fried chicken restaurant on site that was yummy. The only thing that needed improvement was the bathhouses require updating, painting, privacy and more cleanliness. The bathhouses were at best about a 5 on a scale of 1-10, but were usable. There are nice trails and this is a very dog friendly park. We would definitely use this park again when traveling through the area. Rate with KOA discount. We camped at Butte KOA in a Truck Camper.

Pretty typical of an older park. Relatively narrow spaces. We had a huge old tree on our site that the step lined up with so you had the step on the exposed roots to get in your door. Water pressure was good and we had no trouble with the WiFi. It worked well and was relatively fast. Great location to see old "uptown" Butte. Cable TV would be nice. Staff was very friendly and we were very impressed with the onsite fried chicken store. We camped at Butte KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an older park the spaces are average size. The people are very friendly and helpful with information. The store has several items both food and souvenirs. It is next to a chicken fast food restaurant that is good. We would return to stay and see more of the area. It is close to town so it would be easy to use a base. All the utilities worked fine. We camped at Butte KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good overnighter. Level campground with gravel site pads and a bit of grass in between sites; most sites pretty close together. There is some road noise from I-90, but considering there isn't much buffer, it was surprisingly relatively small. Granted, we did run our fans overnight to help drown it out. Small, friendly staff; fried chicken take-out (family-owned for 38 years) on the premises, which was pretty good. Nice mountain view, and a paved walking/bike path (city-owned) runs right by the campground, with a stream on the other side of it. As one previous reviewer mentioned, this could pose a safety concern, but we didn't notice any problems. Bathrooms were clean but the number was inadequate, in my opinion, for the size of the campground. Some longterm campers here, but pretty neat. Fairly easy on-off from I-90 so a lot of overnighters use it too. Minimal shade in most sites. Rate reflects KOA member discount. We camped at Butte KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Convenient overnight park near an exit but not overly noisy. New owner just took over operation and appears to be doing some renovating. Young lady in the office was very pleasant and efficient, older escort person missed the customer service training. It's an older campground, and the sites are quite close. Several sites had trees that needed trimming and we witnessed RVs scraping past them. Water pressure was pretty bad at times, and OK at other times. Walk through the back of the park to the adjacent Butte Visitors Center (of course, anyone out there can walk right into the campground as well). Maybe the new owner will erect a security fence? Some older campers look like they've been there for years. But all things considered it served our purpose for an overnight stop, but I'd hope the new owner will do some renovating and updating. We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is right off the highway but there is a green belt that reduces the noise considerably. There are 16 pull-thru 50amp full hook-ups that are long enough for class A and toads. Sites have a picnic table but you must ask for fire ring. Some have large trees that could obscure your satellite so check at the office. The campsites are a little narrow but workable. There is no sprint phone service in this area or anywhere in Montana, UGH! The parks free WIFI is very slow so just be patient. The road around the campground is gravel with level gravel sites and a patch of grass/weeds between each. Besides the long pull-thrus there is a mix of sites to suit just about anybody. There is a long term area with old trailers and some pretty unsightly rigs. Restrooms, showers and laundry were all clean. Owner and staff seem to be working hard getting the park in shape for the season. The campground is right next to the visitor center that has several miles of paved walking path. If you have time after touring Butte you should drive the Pioneer scenic highway, well worth the trip! We camped at Butte KOA in a Motorhome.
