7 Parks near Deer Lodge, Montana
Jul 2016 - $40.00
If we have stayed here before it must have been last century. What surprised me the most was that there was no usual KOA "park map" given at check in - all we got was the receipt and a slip of paper with the internet password. This small (40 site) KOA has gravel sites with "grass between the sites. Half are pull through, FHU and half are W&E back ins along the Clark Fork River. The hookups for these sites share every other site so every other RV will have the W&E on the "wrong" side. The main building is old and houses the office, an expensive ($2.50 just the washer) 4 machine laundry, and half a dozen small individual bathrooms with sink, toilet, and shower. They were clean and, for a change) more than adequate for a park this size. There is no cable TV but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The WIFI was OK until it got dark. It then slowed down and became useless. The owner was pleasant and helpful. I saw no sign of any recycling. - Jerry S

The sites for pull through are long enough for 40' plus our large towed. They are close with grass strip between rigs. There is a nice river that runs next to park with Brown Trout. Quiet area. I would stay here again. Very nice staff and park is very well maintained. Small private restroom/showers are well maintained. The host was exceptional. - Gurleymon

We normally don't stay at KOAs and this one was very disappointing. The lots are tight and gravel. Almost stepped in dog mess while hooking up. The lots on the river are small and short but would be nice if it wasn't 24 degrees. The area around the park is rundown, local homeowners use same road to enter their area. There were 5 run-down trashy looking campers that seemed permanent as you enter the park. Wifi worked well. This park is not worth the price we paid which reflects a Discount. We would not stay here again. We camped here for two nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel. Note: the lady who checked us in and took care of the park was awesome! - westie0506

We love this campground and always stop here when traveling through the area. We summer in Montana and this is our 3rd visit here. It is right off the interstate and very big rig friendly for easy in and out. Despite being near the interstate, it's quiet! And there is a restaurant within walking distance.
The showers are super clean and modern. The campground hosts are always watering to keep the grass green. It's not a fancy park, but nicely kept and great for a night or two.
We paid the extra $3.00 for cable since we don't have satellite. The channel list is 32 channels, so not real extensive but it works fine.
This is not a resort by any stretch, but it's spacious, quiet and the hosts are friendly. Highly recommend. - DawnsDad

Nice long pull thru with grass area. Some sites had tables ours did not. The office staff where indifferent and not a lot of help. Our site was by the interstate and was loud when outside. The sewer was high which made dumping more difficult to complete. If just for overnight it is okay, but ask for a site away from the interstate. - sjones

Convenient to Interstate, gas station, and casino. Discount on gas if you stayed here. Nothing to write home about, just easy to get in and out. Good for a one night stop. - LHB2014

We initially planed to stay just a couple of nights to walk over to soak at the pools at Fairmont Hot Springs. We extended our stay to a full week as we found the park readily accessible to Butte, Anaconda and other day trips. (i.e., route 1 loop up thru Phillipsburg.)
It looks like the park is undergoing some renovation, a new outdoor patio area looks new.
We stayed in loop at NE section of park. Sites were close together, but didn't feel overly crowded. Very long back in sites in this section, against seldom used tent sites. Our site must have been 100' long. Sites in other section of park were closer together and more crowded.
Staff was pleasant, facilities were clean and orderly. I would stay here again if I could get a spot in loop on NE side....extra long back ins. - Bruins_in_the_Bus

We got to enjoy 4 nights at the Fairmont RV Park right before Independence Day. Nice, quiet, clean, reasonably priced. The only issue at all was the water pressure at the site was low, at least the shower house was clean and had great water pressure. My only suggestion for the owners would be to update their website, it does not do their RV Park justice. - MT woodworker

Nice park close to the Hot Springs. Very nice staff and the sites are pretty level. - The DnD Adventure

We stayed here on our way up to Glacier and again on our way back. Nice large spot for our 38 ft 5th wheel. Backed right up to a little river that the kids played in. We did not realize the office was in back up a hill. But that had a drop box out front so it was very convenient to just pay in the drop box. We loved our stay here and plan to come up again just to stay here for a few nights! My only recommendation is that they have more signs near the drop box to point people up to the office. And maybe a map of the facilities there as well so people coming with tents and also those who only need electric know where to go. We had three different people ask us if we knew were to check in at. - Knibbers

Located right off I-15 between Helena and Butte makes this a convenient overnight stop. The campground has two parts. There are nicely shaded level back in sites near the creek. If you want pull thru sites with no shade, those are available in the front of the campground. The manager is very friendly and accommodating. While sites are close together, the park was only 20% full when we stayed there. We spent two nights and attended the Wednesday night pot luck dinner which was enjoyable. Many of the campers are here to take advantage of the health mine. This is an interesting concept! Hookups are good but the sewer is located way in the back of the site so you may need a sewer extension. Pretty location, nice people, and reasonable rates make this place a winner! - linnemj

We had a great time at this unique RV park and would be happy to visit again. We were granted a Good Sam discount and our 40' RV was assigned a fairly level gravel site which backed onto a lovely creek. There was plenty of space for our tow car and outdoor chairs. A picnic table was provided. Pull-thru sites are available, but are not as nice as the creek-side spots. A short walk up the hill from the RV park is the Merry Widow health mine. Gold, silver, zinc and uranium were previously mined at this location, but now it (along with several other mines in the area) is known as a "health mine" where folks come to take a series of hour-long treatments. There seems to be a rather dedicated clientele, with many yearly repeat customers camping and taking treatments. We were allowed a free walk-through of the mine, and noted a monthly state check of the mine water quality was in progress. A highlight of our visit here was the weekly Wednesday night potluck, where we shared in a delicious feast and met some of the fascinating people drawn to this area. A nearby gravel road which passed through some national forest service land proved great for jogging. A piano and other amenities were provided in the large recreation hall (where the potluck dinner was held). Guests are also reportedly welcome to use the cooking facilities here. Internet service was included with our site rental, and worked quite well in conjunction with an external antenna. - The Borgs

This park has easy big rig access from Interstate and sites are level, spacious, good utilities placement, overall minimum road/ train noise, grass patios but the dead recently sprayed grass easily tracks into RV. Overall, a good stop with friendly escort to sites behind a golf cart designated " the pilot car". And most importantly, only two rules! Pick up after dog and no mats on live grass!
Will stay again! - RJourney

We stayed overnight traveling through. There was train and road noise.
Trash in the game room and on the floor in the building going into the restrooms.
Women's bathroom was cleaner than the men's. - Bogeycoton

We spent one night here, transiting from Yellowstone to Glacier. It has a convenient location, just off I-90. Sites are spacious and long. Utilities all worked well, but the WiFi was a bit slow. Good AT&T and Verizon cell and data coverage. No cable TV and no broadcast TV - this place is in the boonies. Some traffic and train noise, but not all that bad. Owner is friendly and helpful. - Ray Waugh

Stayed here 2 nights on our way east to Minnesota, and 2 nights on the return trip 4 wks later. We are "boondockers" at home, and wanted a mountain spot to relax for a couple of nights. Very nice, quiet NF site at about 5500 ft elevation. Hand pump for water, vault toilets, and bear boxes for food storage!! A bit off the freeway on pretty good gravel roads, but not difficult to get to. On weekends, it is used by locals and ATV's. We never felt they were obnoxious, and pretty much only used the campground roads to go in and out from the main road and up into the mountains. Great spot for thunderstorms in the hot summer!! Spaces are fairly short, our 24ft TT fit in one spot well but a much larger unit would have some problem finding a adequate site. Forest Service states 22ft max for sites. Fire rings and solid picnic table at each site. Sites are free, but had to put in something for the review!!! - GLB

We stayed at the park because it was the closest to town and the Old Works Golf course. It is quiet and there ia a very nice paved path that runs along the creek to take the dog for a walk or yourself. There are deer around and if you walk at the right time they will be out to see. There appear to be several permanent residents and some rigs are in good shape while others have a run down look to them. I did not see any pull thru sites, only back in sites. Durinig our stay we took the tour around town and it was very informative. Please take the time to see a movie in the historic theater and you will be happy you did. If you are a golfer play the Old Works Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus. While we were at our site I smelled sewer odor off and on and could not figure why until the day we left. Luckily we only had the grey water hose opened while we were there because when we removed it the water was overflowing from the sewer. It appears the site next to us also had the same issue. The cable tv is another issue. It is Comcast and if you have an analog tv you must get the box fromm the office and do a special connection to get tv. The first box did not work but the second did. Wifi works if you are at or very close to the office otherwise it is not good. I used my ipad with cellular service. I am not sure what site we had so I entered A. - petpeople
