I don't give any park with no water to site or sewer a 9 or 10. Even with those this would not have been a 10. I do recommend visiting this campground. I found it because AAA had the Fort Peck dam as a "gem" in their tour book. The area around this campground is a "gem" to visit. Beautiful scenic views. Very good and free tour of facility. Very very nice museum right next to camp ground. When we were here, this campground and the whole area was infested with mosquitoes. They bite during the day here. Bring OFF. Once I put on the OFF lotion the mosquitoes stayed away.

This is a very nice and spacious campground. Try and get a site with a water view. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For some strange reason they put water fill ups (two of them) so you block the road when filling up. So if you can come with a full tank. Put on bug repellent before going outside if you come in summer. Be sure to go up at sunset to see the views up top of the dam. Bring your best camera. Take route 24 in. Other road is under construction. For miles.

Wanted to see Fort Peck Dam and didn't even know this park was here. Looked like a nice park. After going to the dam and refuge visitor center we decided to stay as it as getting late to travel very far. This was a very nicely maintained park, with some pull thru's. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visitor center at dam was extensive. Only got to spend about an hour there but could have spent 2 or 3 going through nature exhibits and wildlife displays.

Fantastic restaurant at West end of Dam, with inside and outside seating. Did not fish, but that seems to be the main attraction for this campground.

This is a beautiful park with large, long, well-spaced, clean, paved sites. Picnic tables and fire pit are on concrete. Lots of large trees and grass. The staff has been very nice and helpful. We originally planned on two nights but added a night because it's such a relaxing place. The Fort Peck Dam interpretive center is nearby and very interesting. It's a cooperative effort between the Army Corp and Fish and Wildlife because it's also part of the Charles Russell NWR. Very nice, paved nature trail around the park. The road coming from the east (Hwy. 117) is under construction so be patient. $10/night is Senior Pass rate. We camped at Downstream COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a large, level, and clean site surrounded by mature cottonwood trees. I would definitely recommend this campground. Sites have an electric hookup, water is from faucets scattered throughout the campground, and the dump station is just outside the entrance.

As of June, 2016, route 117 between the campground and US route 2 is being rebuilt. It is a temporary dirt road and barely usable. Even if you are coming from the east I recommend using route 24 from Glasgow which is a very good road. We camped at Downstream COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice COE campground with electric hookup, picnic table, and fire ring. My site was a back in that was plenty long next to a large shade tree. There are lots of large trees here. Grounds are well maintained. Campground host was nice and sold firewood. There are several ponds and a nature trail, one pond is supposed to be stocked with Bass. Very quiet and peaceful place to stay when crossing the east half of Montana. We camped at Downstream Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel. We camped at Downstream COE in a Fifth Wheel.

They give free tours of the hydroelectric powerhouse nearby. There is an interpretive center connected to the park by a trail that has large glass aquariums with some large speciments of the fish found in the resevoir and river. There is a restaurant and bar on the lake if you take the road that goes over the dam to the Fort Peck side.

We've never stayed at a COE park before. This one was great. Spacious sites with no one on our passenger side at all. Electric 50 amp only. No water or sewer. Quiet and peaceful. There are great walking, paved walking paths around the park to see the lake, birds, wildlife (deer), wildflowers, or exercise. No Wi-Fi. Water pressure was fine. Men's showers were too used and old for me. One toilet only for men. When I informed the host that there was no TP, he told me it was taken regularly by children to start their fires. Nice place. We'd come again. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.

Vary nice Park will be back to stay again. Wide open spots. Restrooms need some updating but I would say they are good enough, you are camping not staying at a SPA. They need to trim some of the old branches next to the RV spots. All of us enjoyed the walking path. We camped at Downstream COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We were assigned to the "No Reservations" area to site 63. After setting up it started to rain lightly and shortly thereafter the 30 amp circuit breaker popped and could not be reset. Since we don't need 30 amps I tried the 15 amp ... same thing. I then cabled over to site #62 to the 50 amp and all was well. So after talking to the host, moved to site 62. I suspect the problem is water/resistance related. l asked about AT&T signal there and was told probably not, and Verizon would be spotty. Nevertheless since I had tiny intermittent signal on my Nexus 5 phone I set up a Wilson Amplifier outside, ran a cable inside to an amplifier and small antenna and we had Internet for the rest of our stay. My dollar of course, since it was using my data. However ... this is vacation and this is where I want to stay. The sites are immaculate and water spigots are close by. The walking trail I loved ... around the perimeter of the park, about 2.3 miles and perfect for dog walking. We camped at Downstream COE in a Travel Trailer.

Rate is with Senior Pass. Our GPS misdirected us but we eventually arrived at the campground. The campground is about 14 miles from US-2. Downstream COE is in a very nice location on the Fort Peck reservoir. The park staff was very helpful. The sites are paved with lots of room between neighbors. There are several paved hiking paths within the campground. We would have enjoyed several days here, but it was just an overnight stay on this trip. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.

Great park with large and well spaced sites. Satellite and Verizon air card and cell service was adequate but not super fast. Trees were trimmed high and hosts were very friendly. 1500 miles of lake shoreline to explore. There is a two lane dump station just to the right as you leave the campground entrance. We camped at Downstream COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Great COE campground! Friendly hosts, very large and well spaced sites with 30/50 electric. Water available throughout the park but not at the sites. Some restrooms were vault and some were flush with showers. Lots of shade trees but lots of open space too. No water access from the CG but multiple access close by. The CG sits below the dam and is within walking distance to the lovely visitors center. As a side, the town of Fort Peck has a wonderful summer theater that is very well attended. There are also a variety of FREE campsites around the waters edge down stream. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.

Beautiful COE park with miles of hiking trails and water access for boating and fishing. Our site was huge, beautifully treed and extremely comfortable. Lots of bugs so remember the bug spray and mosquito coils. There are no water or sewer hook-ups, but potable water is available for filling your tanks and a dump station is located just down the road from the park. We camped at Downstream COE in a Fifth Wheel.

A great Corp Of Engineers park, great price with senior pass. Park has a blacktop bike trail around the park, great riding. Park is beautiful, the power house tour is great. Sites are large and not close to each other. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. The only down fall is that there is only 2 showers in each of the two bathrooms, not much room for so many sites. I would stay here again, if I am ever in this area, just need to upgrade the shower situation. We camped at Downstream COE in a Travel Trailer.

Another great Army Corps of Engineers Dam Campsite. It was a weekend early in the season, so it was not crowded. Lots of families enjoying the weekend. It was quiet enough to hear the birds and the hum of the power plant a mile away. Facilities were clean and well kept as typical. With senior pass, the rate is great. We would recommend to anyone. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.
