Great setting on the Flathead River. We were in a pull through site in the middle of the park. The site was level and long but pretty tight side to side. Overall it seemed the park needs some TLC but it was nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a good pass through site, but only an okay destination site. Didn't matter to us as we didn't spend much time there anyway. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We spent an afternoon kayaking on Flathead Lake. Rented our kayaks from Base Camp in Big Fork. The drop off and pick up on the lake or river. Great service and an absolutely beautiful day on the lake.

Nice little park on the river, level grass/gravel sites. pull thu's are adequate a little tight for big rigs. Park has recently been taken over by new owner, was a little run down by previous owner. New managers are a bit overwhelmed with the busy season and trying to keep up with repairs at the same time. Has great potential if they can get their ducks in a row. A LOT of trees!! We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

Park appeared to be an old mobile home park that they're fixing up. We had a great site (#27) that was nice and wide and long enough for our motorhome. There were some large trees, but we were able to maneuver around just fine. Water pressure was excellent and this really is the best park for access to Glacier Natl Park, which is why we were there. We'd stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Superwalmart in town and the Montana Club has great food.

Nice park, as it is located on the river. Has a lot of shade and trees, cable, and Wi-Fi. Sites are laid out with the terrain and trees so few are alike. Does not seem to be satellite friendly. Dish will be blocked by trees. Talked to other campers and there are very few spaces in the park that will work for satellite receivers.

Close to stores , restaurants, and service locations. Friendly staff. We understand the park acquired new owners during our week's stay. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Spruce for 4 nights recently. It was fine but nothing to write home about. Luckily we didn't spend much time there.

The location is great if you're doing Glacier and surrounding towns. It's great having the river close by. Just be aware the current is very fast and you have to walk downstream a ways to swim or let the dogs swim. It was very quiet the first night, we had a couple children along and they didn't find anyone that first night. It got more lively towards the weekend but nothing out of hand.

The bathrooms were dirty and not kept up well. Cockroaches on the floor, didn't get swept the whole time we were there. Items fixed with duct tape, dirty sinks. The bathrooms haven't been upgraded or renovated in quite some time.

The sites were fairly level but the section we were in was very tight (I'm sorry, I can't find the site number we had), slideouts were right up to our chairs. There were other areas that were much more open on the perimeter.

Utilities worked great, no issues there.

I'm not sure the owners are putting effort in to keeping it up and it's too bad because the location is nice.

We won't be returning. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

The park is on the Flathead River and the view is beautiful! The utilities were good. Excellent water pressure. The sites needed a little tlc. Everything needed to be mowed. We were there a week and when we left they were in the process. It seemed they mowed a little everyday. The site was long and level. However, it was supposed to be a pull-thru but there was a tree it the front. We had to back out when we left. We would stay again but ask for a different site. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Beautiful Campground. Borders the river, a very short walk. Wide, level Sites. Cable TV. Relatively fast Wi-Fi. Close to Kalispell for shopping, yet quiet. Most sites have some shade, but you can still use satellite if you don't want to use their cable. Got disconnected from Wi-Fi about 4-5 times in 24 hours, but it was still usable. Why cannot campgrounds get good dependable Wi-Fi? We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

Lovely park right next to Flathead River so you can fish off the banks. Nice large sites, big trees all around. Huge open area for walking dogs or kids to play as well as a playground. Great Wi-Fi and cable TV. Owners are super nice and accommodating. Peaceful, nice park. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate was for week and a half. Rooftop dish worked well around the trees in site 44, Verizon cell and hotspot worked as did their Wi-Fi. 50 amp power, water, cable TV, and sewer all OK. We enjoyed the Flathead River and 2 members of our party fished there and caught a couple small trout. Convenient to the city and restaurants plus Glacier Nat'l Park. We used the laundry once, too busy the second time we went so went to a laundromat. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife says give them a 10 for site 25. Very level, did not need levelers. Satellite TV worked. Shade tree and picnic table. Full hookups. Paved streets so I could ride my bike. Play area for kids. Some sites right on the Flathead River; other sites with river view. Easy in and easy out. Ample dumpsters for trash. Friendly neighbors gave me advice for a mobile RV repair person and he came out the next morning at 8:30 and finished the repair by 9:15. Only minor negative were speed bumps, but this made it safe even for little kids. Just biked around them. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

The site we were assigned had very little space between the two adjacent campers. The site was dirt and grass but was fairly level. We were bothered by an adjacent camper starting and idling his motorcycle for twenty minutes. The river and trees were nice but not worth the premium price charged. Don't plan on returning. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Travel Trailer.

When we first stopped at this campground, no one was in the front office; however, there was a note on the front door with a number to call. Within 5 minutes the owners arrived. One was somewhat gruff, whenever in the office area, but extremely nice when out and about in the park. The park was being updated after being closed for the winter. Only one of the shower houses was open and the laundry room had limited hours of operation. Reservations need to be made early as the park quickly fills for the summer months. I would recommend requesting Loop H, as we had no problem with traffic noise from the highway and had a wonderful view of the mountains. The former owner of the park lives on the premises and was a true joy to talk with! We stayed in the park for two weeks and truly enjoyed the area. This park is convenient to Glacier, Kalispell, and Whitefish. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

This is a very clean cozy park. It doesn't look like much when you pull in, but the sites are clean and well kept. However, it is somewhat difficult to tell where one site ends and the other starts since the entire area is grass. The site numbers are on the pavement, which I did not notice until I counted from the end to see where our site was located. There are a couple of exceptions in the back where there used to be modular homes which have been removed and those sites are huge. The WI-FI and Cable were both excellent. You are given a code for the WI-FI and we were asked if we had more than one computer, which we do, so we were given and extra code card. Cable has over 60 channels and the reception was very clear. We also had good satellite reception. There was some comment about the noise from the road, but since we were more to the center of the park, we never noticed any road noise. They have a large shaded area in the center of the park which is open and can be used for kids to play in or have a group picnic. We would stay here again. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Motorhome.

First of all, the comments re: the owner, are not valid. I was very antsy given the previous comments, but found nothing to validate the comments after meeting her and working with her. We thought we'd have more of a river placement, and she was more than willing to make changes. She is a professional business woman, but she is very compassionate. Check-in was efficient. There are rules, but nothing over the top. They are enforced for everyone's safety/enjoyment of the campground. Any infraction will be cause for you to leave without a refund. We looked at other campgrounds, and this seems to be the same everywhere. This statement must be there for a reason because it is visible at other campgrounds. I think they want people to be civil and enforce rules to make sure all are guaranteed a nice stay. This campground is showing its age, but it is functional. The entrance is not too appealing with a "manager's" mobile home as you enter the property with things in storage behind it that need to be behind closed doors. The roads are paved and in good condition. It's easy to manipulate a 40' 5th wheel toy hauler within the CG. Spacing between the sites is good, and there are mature trees on the property providing good shade. They need to pay more attention to the site's themselves because there are weeds growing in the gravel parking and bare spots in the grass, but you are allowed to use a mat, which is unusual in this area. I understand some of the power posts are placed on the opposite side than you expect, so ask at the time of booking to make sure you aren't impacted. There are ticks/mosquitoes in the area, so be prepared. Yes, the campground butts up against the Flathead River, but you can't see it well from many sites. I understand folks book one year in advance to get the sites right on the river, which is beautiful. There is a large common area with trees/picnic tables that you can enjoy + fish. We did not use the dog park, laundry or showers that cost $0.25/use. The rate posted was the monthly rate. We did have to pay an additional $4/day when our daughter visited. And, there is a $15 charge if you bring a pet. Cable is included in the rate as is internet service provided by tengo. It was surprisingly great, and we depend on it a lot because we telecommute from our RV. I was able to shut down my Verizon router and run off the CG's service. (Verizon service is 4G in this location.) Bonus! Saved on my satellite costs + internet while camping here. There is consistent road noise from a heavily traveled road, but not overbearing...just continual. I didn't enjoy this, but most of the CGs here are on main roads. We were in row C, so maybe deeper into the CG, it is not as noticeable. I will say I am road noise sensitive. There is a playground for the children, and they burned up the paved roads on their bikes. We've not been in this area, and there is SO MUCH to do here. We are here for one month, but only have the weekends to really explore because of our work. I don't think one month will do this area justice. It is an amazing place. People are warm and welcoming in this area. We would stay here again. It is ~30 miles from Glacier National Park. We camped at Spruce Park on the River in a Fifth Wheel.
