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. We camped at Lake Como Campground (Bitterroot National Forest) in a Fifth Wheel.

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!! We camped at Lake Como Campground (Bitterroot National Forest) in a Travel Trailer.

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.

The camp hosts were VERY friendly and came over to help my 2.5 year old crack open his peanuts and give him a frisbee and smokey the bear book. The campground itself was very quiet and pretty. I was a little disappointed the RV campground was just below the dam, so you had to hike up to see the water. There was free firewood to burn in the fire pits. The hookups in some sites were on the wrong side of the RV, so I had to string power and water underneath. No big deal, just a bit odd. Also the campsites were HUGE! You could easily fit 3 x 34' motorhomes in our site. We camped at Lake Como Campground (Bitterroot National Forest) in a Motorhome.

Lake Como Campground is in the Bitterroot National. Forest north of Darby, Mt. Located off of Highway 93, it’s almost three miles in making it a really quiet setting among old growth Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir. All of the sites are paved pull throughs and big rig friendly. There are two double sites (two electric & water connections in the double sites) and eight single sites, one being a handicapped site. The interior road is also paved so we weren‘t dragging dirt into the motorhome. The aprons are very narrow and it may take a few attempts to hug the outside of the apron to give yourself enough room to put out your side tables and chairs. There’s a table and fire ring next to the site and it‘s very roomy. Don’t know why they made the aprons so narrow especially since this campground has just recently been renovated. Every site has water and 20/30 amp service. The bathrooms are vault toilets, no lights at night so you’ll have to grab a flashlight. This campground does provide garbage service. NO DUMP STATION…. We’ve found that there are very few waste stations provided by the forest service. Stop at a Ranger’s Station in Sula, Darby, or Hamilton and pick up a pamphlet that has waste station locations. There are a number of them in the area, one being Anglers Roost (RV park) to the north and Traveler‘s Rest in Darby to the south. Traveler’s Rest charges $5.00 to dump and another $5.00 to fill your water tank. Lake Como is a great campground, very peaceful and small. You can’t see the lake from the campground but it is only a short walk away. Nice sandy beach and swimming area. Picnic tables and vault toilets are provided. Not all sites are level but our site, #9 wasn’t a problem. There’s no cell or Aircard signal (Verizon) in the campground but we didn’t have a problem getting a satellite signal. There’s a grocery store about six miles from the campground in Darby that’s well stocked. The town of Hamilton, Mt. is about 19 miles to the north where you will find just about anything you might need. We stayed here for two weeks through the Labor Day weekend. Campsite rates are as follows: $14.00 for the campsite and an extra $2.00 for the utilities. If you hold a Golden Age Pass it’s $7.00 for the site and $2.00 for the utilities. Tow vehicles are not considered an extra vehicle but if for some reason you have 2 cars in your site they charge an extra $5.00. A Recreational Pass is also required if you park anywhere in the recreational area other than the campground and it costs $5.00, or it’s free with the Golden Age Pass. I’ve seen people driving around without the recreational pass hanging from the rear view mirror and no one seems to check for them. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Como Campground (Bitterroot National Forest) in a Motorhome.
