We did wind up getting a free night after staying for 6, as we wound up staying here a week because of motorhome issues. Would never have chosen this as a week's destination; initially thought we were only staying 2 nights to visit the area and it was quite convenient to shopping considering we had to be here for so long. Did not tour the whole campground but I think there were several/many long term folks as I saw monthly bills on the desk in the office. It's only saving grace was that we had 50 amp service and full hookups while getting our motorhome issues managed. The lady in the office (when she was there) was quite friendly and helpful as we needed some major cleaning done inside our rig. She claims new owners have taken over and improvements will be made this Fall. Private shower stalls looked quite nice although we did not use them. Laundry facilities were filthy and ancient. Went to a laundromat up the road instead. Sites are very close together - we couldn't open awnings or use a picnic table which was falling apart anyway. Landscaping was non-existent. I would never come back here. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not many choices in Helena. Was OK for a one-nighter. Make sure you stay up front by the office. The back part is for long term folks. Most expensive rundown park we have ever stayed in. I don't believe they have spent a hundred dollars on improvements in the last five years. If necessary we would stay here again. Never did meet the office person. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We drove through this RV park to see an option to another local park. We would not stay here. It is really a trailer park with residents stacking whatever items they want around their site. Evidently, they don't own a lawnmower. Park is considerable disrepair. Better to stay in the Walmart parking lot! We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We decided NOT to stay here. With the previous manager it seems the park was neater and a little more organized. We stayed here last year for a month in June. This year it seemed messy and neglected. I realize this is not a complete review but since the condition was so noticeable AND increased in price it should be noted.

We chose another park that is further and only $5 more per night. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Should be sued for false advertising. Very run down. Pool has been filled in, office in musty, dark building, spaces very narrow. Barely room to walk around RV with slides out. Fire pit non-functional, and a safety hazard. No water hook-up, just a hose to fill fresh water tank. Overgrown with weeds, interior roads in poor repair. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects weekly stay. Park is an old, former KOA. The back section is filled with permanent residents. A new area up front has been added with pull-throughs for transients. These spaces are narrow but adequate. Park is fairly close to city amenities, good location. Current owner is trying to upgrade as he can. If you want a resort, this isn't it. If you want an economical place to stay at a good location in Helena, you can't beat it for now, and if the improvements continue, it can only go up from here. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park looks okay from the road; all you can see is the office. But after we turned the corner and saw the actual park, we circled around and left. I would have rather taken my chances in the boonies. Mostly filled with old trashy (did I mention trashy) long term trailers; junk, old chairs, old run down cars and trucks everywhere. The interior roads are narrow and super dusty. Sites are narrow. They need a major overhaul. Owner was very nice, but we just couldn't do it. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Large, level sites with fair-sized lawn, well staggered for some privacy. Restrooms are very clean. Wi-Fi is reliable, a little slow. Excellent Verizon cell service, Sprint is on roam, Verizon broadband is slow. Electricity is good. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped with electricity only, but we were only here overnight. The majority of the slots are for long-term residents. They don’t really normally rent to travelers, but they made an exception for us because we needed to make an emergency repair and wanted a place to overnight. Only back-in spots were available this late in the year. The dump station was broken. The campground has a palatial bathhouse and laundry facility, and there’s even some exercise equipment. Two of the washers and the majority of the dryers were broken, but there were still plenty of both to do all our laundry. Laundry was very inexpensive--only $1.25/washer and $1.25/dryer. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an old KOA campground that has been taken over by a private owner. I would not recommend this campground at all. If you do stop here be sure to request a pull through site. The back in sites are in a less well maintained part of the park, and the electrical/water hookups for these sites are at the back of the sites instead of on the side as you would normally find in any other campground. We originally had asked for a water and electric only site (hence we were given a back in site), but once we saw how the hookups were set up we went back and had them move us to a pull through. The campground sits behind a mobile home park which makes the campground feel very low class and the campground itself is not very well maintained. The showers are all private and very big. But the water would go from scalding hot to cool and back to scalding hot (and I mean scalding) for no rhyme or reason. They were clean enough and the water pressure was good. Campground was quiet and dark at night as it does not sit near any major roads. We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Afternoon wind brings dust from dirt interior roads. Wi-Fi not at all sites but from clubhouse is good. Beautiful pool. Would return. Quiet We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We thought the curb appeal could be improved- grass needed mowing, and many tree stumps in sites. We sort of went out the wrong way because we could not swing wide enough to miss the neighbor's toad and the stump. The permanent mobile homes sort of were a turn off as you pull in the park. BUT the park was clean, quiet and the people were friendly. WIFI in the rec room - but was sometimes able to be picked up on site. Only a couple of tv channels - but the pool and the hot tub were so nice. Laundry looked clean but we did not need it. We would stay here again.

Located on the north side 3 miles from city limits. Well maintained, older park with large shade trees. Very clean, level sites. Good Sam and AAA. Friendly and helpful staff made us feel welcome. We will return for longer stay! We camped at Helena Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
