We came to see the ghost town and pan for gold in Bannack City. The campground is on the state park grounds. The campground was full.
It is not the nicest campground that I've stayed in, but it is still nice. Even the young campers, drinking beer, were polite enough to keep it down after dark.
I would not call this campground a destination location, however, Bannack City is a destination location. It is nice to have such a pleasant campground available on the grounds.
Highly recommended if you want to see the Bannack City ghost town. - griz326

There are two campgrounds at Bannack State Park, Vigilante and Road Agent. We stayed at Vigilante campground which not only has slightly more sites but ones that are larger. At this time of year we pretty much had our pick as far as campsites went and so chose site #9, right along Grasshopper Creek. The campground is quite pretty, but primitive. You do get a picnic table and a fire ring and I think they sell firewood during the summer. I believe there is also water available in the summer but there is no dump station so come with full fresh water tanks and empty holding tanks. Our $20 camping fee included the entry fee to the historic ghost town of Bannack, which is the real draw to the park and well worth a visit. - BruceandKathyWA

For a dry camping state park, this was an excellent campground. The main draw, the ghost town of Bannack is an absolute treasure. You could walk around for hours exploring the abandoned buildings all over this town. The visitor center is a wealth of information and great reading material about the pioneer/gold rush days in early Montana Territory history. This is the perfect overnight stop if you find yourself wanting to cut the drive from Idaho Falls to Missoula in half. Keep in mind that the campground is really there to be a base to explore the park, but there are some BLM areas adjacent to the park with hiking trails if that's your interest. Seriously, if you're at all into old west history, this stop is a must! - ringworm

This is always our favourite RV Park to stay at when returning to Canada after the winter in Yuma. Sparkys ribs never disappoint. Hosts are always very pleasant and helpful. - Renegade Bill

Stayed for 3 nights while visiting the area. Great managers and friendly. guided into parking site by manager. Nice little park and plenty of room for our large motorhome / trailer and car /trailer. We've stayed here in the past and always come back! Nice location, but railroad tracks are close to park. Minimal trains and no issue for us. - bmwhacker

This is a cute little park. Roads are gravel, sites are gravel with a strip of grass in between with 1/2 a picnic table at each site, not a whole one but 1/2 one. The owner escorted us to our site which I really appreciate. We got great satellite reception in site #17. They give a military/vet discount also. We will stay here again if ever in this area. - kathiecarlson

We stayed at this free BLM campground by the reservoir. There are no hook ups and only vault toilets. Each campsite had a newer picnic table with a roof for shade and a fire ring. Views were gorgeous. Plenty of space between sites This was one of our favorite stops. - minnieannie

Admin. Note: As of May 2014 all campgrounds are open according to BLM district office.
Park is closed until further notice due to very low water. We just drove by today. Will add more info if I hear from anyone in Dillon. - Jeff S

This reservoir is managed by Bureau of Reclamation and there are several campgrounds all around the lake. The pay camp is at the Marina and has full hookups for $30.00 per night and 1/2 price for National Senior Passes. Many other campgrounds around lake are all free with tables and firepits and some even have cabanas. Beautiful historical setting for Lewis and Clark's expedition. - happy trails

We stayed in site 2 on both ways to and from Glacier National Park. Clean, nicely laid out, gravel sites (but compressed and level), decent water pressure, WiFi was OK. Showers and bathrooms were spacious, clean, and presentable. Campground is laid out in an oval. You can see your neighbors, but are not right on top of them. We will stay here again if in the area. Easy on and off I-15. - Rae & Mark

Nice open campground and an excellent overnight stop; easy access off I-15. However, the are often filled during the summer so make reservations early. Great views of the mountains from almost every site. While no cable or OTA TV, it was not a problem for us. Inhabited by two birds we'd never seen before, including a yellow-headed blackbird. - dandd

About 6 miles from town, too far for us to unhook for just one night. - AirstreamR

I was not crazy about this park, but it did have some nice features that some people would enjoy if they can overlook the issues. On the positive side, the park is easy to get to, has lots of grass and trees, is quiet, has a nice pool, and the service is friendly. The wifi is excellent and the Verizon signal strong. There are three o/a tv channels, and there is free cable included, although you have to set up a set top box to use it. It is less than a mile to walk into downtown Dillon, a charming little town. The negative aspects of the park all have to do with the sites. All but a handful are buddy sites, and if you are in a motorhome, and not in the pull through section, you have to pull forward into the site and then back out. The pull throughs are very long, though kind of close side to side. However, I observed two big rigs having serious trouble trying to get into the sites, as it is a little difficult to navigate through the park for big rigs. The back in sites have nice wide front yards (though they are shared), but are very short and highly unlevel. I had to move from the first site they put me in because I was on such a serious side to side slant, and my rig barely fit into the site. The second site was somewhat more level (still pretty seriously slanted to the side), and I fit in there with not an extra inch to spare, front to back. I looked at the website later to see how long the sites were supposed to be, and I discovered they do not list the site lengths at all. So if you tell them you have a 30' rig, you will get put into a 30' site, with not an inch to spare. The gravel pads for the sites are much smaller than the sites themselves, which is part of the problem with leveling, since you may only get two wheels on the pad. I would recommend this park to rigs of 27' or less, if you're ok with the leveling issue. If longer, get a pull through site (they aren't as nice, though). Big rigs, just stay away. - KAP99

Great little place and fun people working there. The park borders a great river that is reportedly good for fishing. We saw a group of whitetail deer grazing in the back picnic area. There is quite a herd of small goats in front, but I don't know the story on them. When we walked out to see them after dinner, they had been taken inside the barn. Our site was really nice and roomy. The restrooms were clean and the pool had not yet been filled for the summer. We had dinner in town at Sparky's Garage and it was fabulous! We did make it out to the ghost town at Bannack State Park. This is the most well-preserved ghost town we have ever seen. It is a long drive out there (26 miles SW of Dillon) but we thought it was worthwhile. - Sharon and Gary

Typical KOA, not bad, not great. I would stay here again. Nice pool. Narrow side roads, we had a large Class A in front of us that was having trouble getting into his space due to tree limbs, but he had been here before, didn't seem to be very patient. There was a smell, traced it to the very large garbage cans that were overflowing. - retired fireman
