A good no-frills park, just right for an overnight stay. Far enough from highway to be quiet. Our site was shaded from the afternoon sun. We weren't impressed with the speed of their internet; used my iPhone hotspot instead. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

It was a convenient place to stay not too far from the highway. Spots were not too close and had most had a nice grassy spot alongside your camper. Laundry was clean and machines in good condition. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good little park without frills and is only 1/2 mile off the main highway. The sites are close together with lots of shade so make sure they understand your RV slide configuration. Most sites have a little slope so you might have to unhook to extend your slides. Food, fuel, and supplies are a short drive away. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Just an overnight stay on our way to Glacier NP. This park seems to be geared towards long-term residents, but there was a section of sites that seemed left open for travelers. From the Google Sat image, it also looks like they've converted some of the pull-through sites into 2 rows of back-ins, which is where we were, facing the office building. Despite the long-term residents and the way they were packed in, the park seemed clean and orderly, and the sheet of rules they give you gives the impression they run a tight ship. *park is not very dog-friendly* - they don't want you on any of their grass, what little there is. There is an empty grassy lot in front of the park, and a city park behind them, but you can't get from the RV park into the City park due to a fence - despite the office staffer telling us there was a clear path. Overall, quiet, and orderly, fine for a quick overnight stay on that long slog across Montana.. but UHG.. more overhead sodium lights! WHY?? We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

We called earlier the day of our stay and told them we were 5 hours out. I didn't realize the office closed at 7 pm. We pulled in around 8:30pm. They had just closed and headed home. The desk clerk saw us on the main road and figured we were the rig he was waiting for. He turned around and opened up the office to get us checked in and to our spot. Very nice people! The space we had was plenty big for our 4-slide motorhome...not very level but we made it work. We only stayed the night. It looked like a clean park. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Your impression of this park will depend on where your site is. If you are in the middle section, it is very, very tight side-to-side, much narrower than the sites along the periphery. There was less than 2 feet left between our door-side slide and our neighbor's...forget setting up a chair. No picnic table at our site, of course, water supply on door side. We paid for three nights but fled after two. Our sewer connection was between our neighbor's chairs. A small tree alongside made retracting the bedroom slide interesting. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you stay here you probably didn't have a reservation for this popular area of Montana. They will do what they can to get you in. (We did have a reservation but ended up in a very bad site). Fiesta Mexicana is a very good restaurant and reasonable. Ft Peck is worth the visit 20 miles away.

We concur with review of July 2015 as we had the same site. We arrived to be told there was only 1 site left and that it was small and in the trees. Since we knew there were no other sites in town, (as we had already checked with them and we were very tired of driving), said we'd take it. Not only were there trees on the site, they were extremely close together and had low branches. Needed 2 sets of eyes (one on either side of our rig) to back us in to make sure we missed them. In order to utilize our slide, we had to be back far enough which meant our stairs landed smack dab on top of the sewer connector of the unit next to us.

Bathhouse was not one I'd want to use. Toilet stalls did not have doors, instead shower curtains hung in each stall. Showers were cement floors and the floors and walls had black spots that I did not want to examine any further. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Truck Camper.

This quite possibly the worst campsite we have paid for in a long time. Our back in site was 12 ft 9 inches wide, between two trees. The units on either side can't be 8 ft away. Our sewer hook up is about 3 steps from their door. Dirt, rutted roads. Mostly long terms users here. Unfortunately, this was the only spot available in Glasgow tonight. Bathrooms smell like oil and cement shower floors are quite broken. Shower curtains for stall doors! Would not stay here again. Head in another direction if you can.

Good Sam rate. Manager voiced personal complaints when we checked in...none of our business. Pull-through sites are far from level but can be overcome. Many overnighters each day. Restrooms and showers appear to be clean and laundry is okay, not expensive. Small farm community, not much going on. Fort Peck dam is incredible and worth a visit and tour. HDTV brings in several stations and Wi-Fi booster pulled a 4 bar signal. Phones were iffy at first but with the booster on were okay. A good place for a short stay. Water/sewer/electric are easy to reach and steady. If we need a place to stop over again, we will stay here. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a good overnight spot. The manager was very friendly and pleasant. The rate reflects an AARP discount. There are three FHI 50/30A pull-through sites next to the office, none of which are even near level, but we were able to get it close enough. Great WiFi!!! A good site after being in BD for six nights. I would stay here again, but for the extra $12, I might go across the street for a level site and to use the pool. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The camp manager was very pleasant and stopped by to see if we needed anything. Camp has mostly RV's for local workers which presented no problem. There are only a few spots for short term campers so we'd advise making a reservation. The dirt /gravel pull thru lot was very large and reasonably level, The shade from the trees made the stay very restful...hence the name I guess. We tracked in a lot if dirt since it rained overnight. Grounds were clean and well maintained. It was quiet at night. Reasonable price reflects the Good Sam discount. Would stay here again for an overnight stop. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
