10 RV Parks near Darby, Montana
Jul 2012 - $13.00
Great find. Highly recommend. Planned on stop. Rate reflects Senior 1/2 off plus $5 nightly utility charge: not $2.00 as indicated on web site. A locals favorite and they are very protective of 'their' park! We had numerous knocks on our door asking when we were going to be leaving, even though our tag showed our check out date! The nearby lake is gorgeous and very busy during the day, even though the water is chilly. Saw deer in our site. Only wish they had a dump station on site. No AT&T cell/internet. If you drive a short way toward the main road, you can get a bar or two of Verizon cell: if you're lucky. Even with the trees, we were able to get a shot for DirecTV. We biked here, enjoyed the beautiful scenery and found it very peaceful. Great camphosts, clean vault toilets. Most sites fairly level and large. Plenty of room for the largest of rigs. With so few available sites, I recommend arriving on a weekday by noon. Definitely would return. - Brujomar

Wow!! What a great site! Trees, huge boulders, nice quiet yet friendly neighbors, almost level pull-through asphalt pad in the shade, with water and electricity at the site. A nearby town has a dump station, so extended stays (about 1 week) would not work for me. I had a great drive over the nearby mountain roads, even though I did not find Twin Lakes. I absolutely will return!! - AluminumCloud

Absolutely the best USFS campground I've ever seen. Vault toilets only, but clean as a whistle. All pull through sites. Plenty wide in and out at the sites we saw. Nice trees, but not too many. Bears, wolves and elk rumored in the area but all we saw was a wild turkey and some squirrels. Would be an 11 with sewer hook-ups, but hey, it's a national forest CG. $5 to dump at Angler's Roost RV on the way north on US 93. - gs2rt

Quiet, small (like 6 spaces + cabins). Very nice people, like staying at your folks place only with hook ups. Shade, everything you'd need. Walking distance to a restaurant, town/shops very quaint. Very laid back, fantastic views. Nothing fancy but felt like coming home to old friends. Will definitely be going back for a longer stay next time. - AHynes28

We camped here a total of six nights in June/July. Jim and Mary are excellent owners and really care about their park and it's guests. They make you feel at home. Each bathroom has it's own shower, which were always immaculate. Towels are even provided. You are within walking distance of this very nice and friendly town. Restaurants, grocery store, gasoline, propane, even a hardware store are all very close. You will not regret staying here, it was overall one of the best places we stayed from Florida to Alaska. - Blind and Lost

This is a very very small RV park combined with cabins. It is not fancy but it is very nice and well-maintained. There are about 6 sites and then an area where I think they might let people dry camp. They have full hook ups, the wifi is good for 1 maybe 2 devices, the cable tv is good too - ananlog not digital. All the hook-up sites are back in but plenty big enough and easy to manage. The utilities are fine except the sewer hook up is kinda raised so it was difficult for us to get drainage. The managers (owners?) are great, friendly, and helpful. The restrooms are individual shower/toilet/sink. They are older but well-kept, neat, and clean. They supply bath mats. There are only two but that should be sufficient even if the park is full (6 RV's.) Darby is a very cute sort of western town within walking distance. We would stay here again. The only reasons I wouldn't give this a 10 is because it is so small and the raised sewer connection. - NiMo

I would have rated this Forest Service campground a lot higher if it wasn't for the campers who used Spring Gulch as their private ATV course. A large group, with at least four ATVs, decided to use the interior campground road for their ATV usage. The noise level was terrible and you were not able to safely enjoy the campground less you hit one of them with your vehicle or they compromised your safety while walking. The peace and serenity of a beautiful setting was ruined by these inconsiderate campers. Forest Service personnel were aware of this situation, but failed to stop the ATV usage. This went on for at least three days.
On the positive side, this is a very nice campground with well placed sites with plenty of trees and privacy along the Bitterroot River. It should have been a great visit but it just goes to show how a few can ruin a good time for the many.
Although I made it with my 5TH Wheel (about 55' total), I had a tough time clearing the tree limbs around the cul-de-sac upon exiting.

This National Forest Campground is located on US 93 2.9 mi north of Sula (1/4 mi north of milepost 15)! It has 10 sites, plus 1 bicycle site, with picnic tables, fire rings, and vault toilets. It also has a picnic area and handicapped accessible facilities to include a fishing pier on the river. Campground can accommodate trailers and RV's to 50'. There are no hook-ups but water is available. We booked 2 nights and found it to be so pleasant we booked 8 more nights. Sites are level and all close to the creek flowing through the RV park. We cannot wait to visit this campsite again! The camphosts were friendly and helpful. - ournextstop

This is a forest campground with no amenities but there is no charge. The bathrooms aren't particularly clean, but they are supplied with toilet paper and don't have an overwhelming odor. A moose walked through our campsite one evening. - cactuslady

This park is filled probably 75% with long term residents, many of whom have units that likely are not even roadworthy. The owner (who is onsite often) is tired of running the place and depressing to talk to. He has let the place go, and just shows up and goes through the motions. The park is for sale but the owner says any sale will have to be approved by the other two partners, who has not spoken to in 5 years. So the place limps along kept in business by the long term residents.
We were going to stay down by the river but the trees have not been trimmed in some time, and they expected me to drive a 13' tall 5W through tree branches that began at say 6' above the ground. They need to trim the trees if they expect people with nice rigs to go down and camp by the river. They relocated me to one of the parking lot style spots. The owner says not to back up too far because the water line is buried very shallow. Our site was in a depression that filled with water when it rained. The sewer connection was almost as high as the outlet from the camper, because it was up a hill from where we parked. No thought went into this design.
Too bad what happened to this place, might have been nice at one time. - Stax

The park has no for sale sign now. We were parked in a pull through on
grass/dirt. Electric good. The area was clean. The person that checked us in was courteous. The restroom was clean and the showers looked good.
We would come back if in the area again. - carold

The marquee sign said the property was for sale, so owners may be hesitant to invest much more in the resort. The campsite was fine -- they placed our Class B in a quiet corner along the river. But the waterfront is also publicly open to fishermen who roam the campground during the day. Wi-Fi was quite patchy and the restrooms were the worst we encountered on our trip. The ceilings were peeling and mold was growing from poor ventilation. Most perplexing were the toilets mounted in the center of the stall, with only a shower curtain hanging a few inches in front of the bowl. As soon as you sat down, your knees stuck out and the curtain didn't provide much privacy. The resort also charges a $5 dump fee, regardless of your camping status for that night. - RVNed

This is an isolated park ideal for an overnight stay. The park adjoins a Lewis & Clark Expedition site. Satellite TV is available from a couple of sites despite surrounding mountains. WiFi was weak. The store has a restaurant we didn't try. - Mtmoi

They only have one 50AMP spot at this location that we were lucky to get it. The facilities are clean and well kept. Most camp locations are wooded and cozy. The spots and drive are large and easy to maneuver around between. We stayed here in a 38ft long 5th Wheel and did not have any issues at all. They also have some cute little cabins at this location each with their own porch swing. The property has a fishing pond for children and the camp is also right next to a river. There is a lovely little shop and restaurant at this location as well as gas pumps. The WiFi provided was spotty at best and completely dead once the store closed for the night. AT&T does not get a signal here but Sprint worked for at least phone calls and texting. The employees are friendly and helpful, it really is a lovely place to stay. We plan on staying here again. - Knibbers

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at this park. Picked mainly for it's location, this turned out to be a bit of a gem. A small park set in tall pines next to the river. The sites/roads are gravel, long enough for any size rig and very wide. Quiet and serene and a bit rustic.
The store has everything needed plus some great souvenir items. There is a nice little restaurant attached to the store and it has a 2 pump gas station, basically everything you might need. And a good 4G verizon signal which is important for us. We will stay again. - Dogs and Cats

This is a campground in the forest just 5 miles from Hamilton. The host is conscientious and helpful and keeps the pit toilets reasonably clean. The campground has only six sites and is within walking distance of two hiking trails. There is NO charge to use this campground. - cactuslady

Located on the north side of Hamilton and convenient to town yet quiet at night. Interior roads and sites are gravel and our pull through site was just long enough to leave the tow attached. Sites are very close together, it's doubtful an awning could be extended. Lots of long term residents with outside items and ATVs, many who park on the interior roads nearly blocking access to a large motor home. Cable TV didn't work, WiFi was too weak to use, but only small trees to block satellite. Verizon cell/data was strong. There are few options in the area, and the park takes advantage by being overpriced for what they offer. - Meanderman

Stayed here while visiting friends in Hamilton. Decent RV park. No frills. Up charge for cable TV of $5.00 per night meant we used DirecTV. Where we were parked there were no tree obstructions. Close to the river but no real access unless you were willing to get wet and muddy. We would stay here again. Managers very accommodating and friendly. - Golfdog

This was an overnight stay and the park fit that just fine. The sites are close and all gravel. They have various size pull troughs some are long enough to stay hooked up others are not. The people are friendly. There are many longer term people at the park but the park is clean and well kept. - JDR

Price included reservation fee. A gorgeous campground well off the road giving a classic Montana experience. The sites are well separated with lots of trees and shade. There were sites suitable for tents and RVs; ours was a 100 foot pull through. No hookups, but very generous generator hours. The pit toilets were spotless. Lots of wildlife - we had a deer walk through our site 10' from where we were sitting. Verizon signal changed between no service and 1 dot with extended service. The place was very quiet, even on a holiday weekend. Note you will probably have to do some leveling. - UTTransplant

Nicely laid out with paved roads throughout park. However, the road to the park is not paved but is good gravel. Sites are large and set far apart. Far enough from Hwy 93 that there is no road noise. Will accommodate rigs up to 50'. Most sites are shady. Only 4 sites taken mid-week in July. Vault toilets and water throughout park. Host couple on site. Reservations are available. We would camp here again. Rate reflects senior camping rate. - mvano

The campground is beautiful, under all the pine trees. There are also cabins you can rent but, I didn't see them. There was one outhouse that was a "REAL" outhouse. The only showers and real bathrooms were available at the pool.
Campsites are small with only one pull-through. The rest of the sites are small and would be okay for 15-20 ft trailers, although the plumbing and electric and water placement didn't make sense.
The hot pools were warm. I was surprised at how beat up the pool was. Also, there was a hot tub on a shaky platform and there was mold all over the ceiling and it smelled like mildew. I was really disappointed in the pool and hot tub.
After seeing the hot tub area I didn't even go to the showers. My son said the shower area was kind of rotted and the floor was broken up.
If you want to be self-contained in your camper and don't plan on swimming, it was beautiful. We saw a deer even.
As for the staff: Mind you we went on their off season, but we were told by the guy there that the site we had was $35 a night, and he had no idea about the discount. He couldn't take our money and we pretty much had to chase them down to pay them. When we found the guy (that knows about paying) we were told it was $43 and then a $5 discount per night. We had already spent the night there so there was nothing we could do. - meemers
