This is a good spot to explore the history of Fort Benton as well as a 35 mile drive to Great Falls. Nice quiet country atmosphere rather than the bigger city. Good price. Cons are the washrooms are few and small (but clean) and not a lot of space in the back-in sites. Ask for a pull-through, much better. Owners on site, friendly, help spot the rig, provide local advice. Wi-Fi worked well, site was level. Would stay here again. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Explore the Fort Benton museum and various interpretative centres. My favorite was a walk along the banks of the Missouri River at the Interpretative Centre - town's done a great job with easy to read information on its history.

Nice, quiet campground not far from Great Falls. The staff is really friendly and go out of their way to help. Site size was ample. We had a grass pad with plenty of room for our dog to have some time outside. Some sites are rock. All sites are level. Apparently, they only use the grass pads when the rock pads are full. We were told they usually only fill up in August when harvest is on. We will stay here again. We camped in a 5th wheel. Rate reflects our PA discount We camped at Benton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hosts were very nice and helpful with information and directions. Wi-Fi and Verizon cell worked great. Laundry room was clean and convenient. Price reflects Passport America discount. Sites a little close together, but other than that, it was a fine place to stay. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

We really liked this place because it suited our needs. People were super nice, and we lucked out and got the best site. I will say that a lot of the sites are pretty close to each other, side by side. Ours was across with a big piece of grass and a shade tree & table. Level and no noise. Town is small, but with a lot of history and one of the best museums we've seen. The Union Hotel serves a great upscale meal, while the Freeze offers inexpensive burgers and ice cream. Only 20 min to Great Falls without all their noise and traffic. We would stay here again. Price reflex RPI & Passport America rate. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice owners and level sites, some on gravel and some grass. $1.25 to wash, $1.00 to dry. Not much to do in town and poor restaurants. Would stay again on PA. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Benton RV Park is a good campground to visit Fort Benton. This campground has a mixture of back-ins and pull-thrus. Most of the pull-thrus can accommodate large rigs including the tow. The water and electrical box is at the back of the site. The sewer is on the middle side of the site. The electrical box contains 20/30/50 amp service. The voltage was good. Most of the sites were fairly level. Wi-Fi was available but we did not use it. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel. It rained for several days but the roads were not too muddy. There were two bathrooms with showers. Surprisingly, there were no locks on these doors. There were also two washers ($1.00) and two dryers ($0.25 for ten minutes). The bottom dryer was not very hot. It was very quiet at night (except for the Montana winds). The price per night was at a PA rate. We would come back to this park if we were in the area. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good, reasonably priced, overnight stop if you are in this section of Montana. The owners are very helpful. I give the owners a 12 out of 10! When they saw that I was alone and on crutches (due to a foot injury) they rushed out and hooked up all my connections and placed my jack pads under the RV for me. Not to mention they gave me a pull-through. Also, my site was 50 amp, but they already had the dogbone 30/50 connector on the site for my 30 amp. The sites are on gravel with a wide grass section separating the sites. Adequate spacing. The one thing I didn't like was the wood frame around the grass sections. The gravel was just wide enough for the RV, then there is the frame around the grass. This wood frame on the grass could be a trip hazard coming out of one's RV. But I'm sure the wood frame was to help keep grass out of the gravel area, as the gravel spots looked nice. I arrived in late afternoon, and had trouble with the Wi-Fi at that time. It was limited. But once it was evening, Wi-Fi worked great. Verizon cell modem, as well as cell phone got good, strong signal. I got no TV reception over batwing (despite a web source I use that claimed I would get a few channels). Good time to catch up on reading or anything else. Didn't get to check bathrooms. Price I am showing includes taxes. If you are in this area, stop here just to experience some great helpful owners. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very serviceable location. Electric, Wi-Fi, water were excellent. Location is somewhat isolated but the history is fantastic. I would use this location again if in the area. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

We wished we could have stayed longer than 1 night. The owner set up a nice shady spot with benches, gas grill, fire pit (benches need to be refinished and cleaned of bird droppings from the many bird houses in the trees). Two toilet/shower combos with plenty of water pressure and recently done. Owner came to our rescue with salad dressing which we forgot to bring! Would stop by again (for longer to check out the town). We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an adequate camp ground. If you are going to be down there during the summer or harvest time it's a good idea to call ahead and check space. The showers are a B+. Good fast Internet and Verizon data service. The sites are not all that level but the system could handle it. Staff is friendly. Ft Benton is a great little place with lots of history, museums, and I recommend you take the tour of the fort. The park as grass and gravel sites and is pretty quiet. It was $28.50 without a discount. A bit pricey for what you get. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice little park run by nice owners. On the edge of town making it easy to access to historic city and museums. We stayed a quiet week which started out spacious with nice green grass between our sites but then it suddenly filled up and RVs were on the grass and we were then cramped. All facilities and hookups were good. Verizon access good. We would stay here again. Rate is Passport America. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Owners are very nice. The park is neat and clean. Grass at most sites. Excellent Wi-Fi. No TV reception via antenna and no cable TV option, but good satellite reception. Park is close to everything in town. There are several excellent historical museums. Very nice paved walkway along the Missouri River. City swimming pool is open in the summer. Rafting, canoeing and fishing is only 5 blocks from the park. Convenient to Great Falls, Havre, and mountains to the south. We will stay here again when we pass through this area.

Rate is daily rate for FHU 50 amp pull through site with Passport America discount. Since it was near the end of the season, the water had been turned off at some of the sites. Sites themselves are wide, but the gravel pad is very narrow. It appears the owners are working to improve this park, but much remains to be done. Good satellite and Verizon cell phone reception. An inexpensive place to stay while exploring the area: we would stay here again. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had a little difficulty finding the park from the address given. This may have been my GPS issue but in this small community it is not a problem to get good matured directions. Long enough sites for big rigs in a new addition. The sites are not very level. 50 amp power was good and but were not offered Wi-Fi code so can not comment on it. Friendly check in and escorted to the site. We camped at Benton RV Park in a Motorhome.
