4 RV Parks near Malta, Montana
Jul 2013 - $24.00
This is a small park with about 6 spaces for big rigs; all grass and fairly long, back-in only. Fairly expensive for what you get. Park also includes a motel. The whole place looks like it has seen better days and a “for sale” sign is posted in front of the office. The electricity (50amp) was fine, but the sewer and water connections were the worst we have seen in 8 years of RVing. They are fairly new, but are installed underground using a “green box” which is typically used for yard irrigation valves. The spigot is right next to the sewer opening only inches away. If someone mistakenly spilled some sewage in the box, it would easily contaminate the spigot. Given the spigot sees no daylight, it is continuously wet and gross. We chose not to connect our water to the system due to this really bad design. The park is easy to get to (just off US2) and is near the local dinosaur museum (worth a visit). Wi-Fi was very good. It is adjacent to a large dusty city park, also somewhat rundown. There are busy train tracks nearby and is fairly close to downtown Malta. Staff was helpful. Probably would not stay here again unless there was no other choice. - ghatfield

This is a no-frills, adequate place to spend the night. Malta is a somewhat run-down town, but Riverside's parking spaces are large with easy turnaround for RVs. Park is adjacent to a small playground for the kids. Clean shower and bathhouse. Walking distance from a restaurant and Dairy Queen. - User3112

This is a very small RV park next to a small motel. The campsites were long enough to stay hooked to the truck and we had full hookups that worked great. They said they had just put in brand new 50amp electric and all the hookups look new. We selected our own site and it backed up to some cottonwood trees and even though the train went by on a very regular basis all night, it wasn't a huge problem. There is a bathhouse with one large private bathroom and shower but we used our own facilities. The owner was pleasant. Check in was very quick and easy. - PegL

Small city park. Great spot for a weary traveler. Good shade with water. Unassigned site.
Trains frequent but not too bad. - Mary Rowell

This municipal park is directly across from where Rt. 191 intersects Rt. 2, behind the rest area. Drive through the rest area to find the park behind. Don't be confused by the RV park which is part of a small motel on the left as you enter the park. There are drive-through sites to the left side, but you can also park in any of the grassy areas. There are several water spigots in the park and the water tastes good. This was a great and super cheap overnight stop at only $3. We would definitely stay here again for an overnight. - CharlieS

This is not a campground. It is a city park that allows camping in any empty area you choose to use. There is no attendant. No hookups, but water faucets are located throughout the park. The local kids use the park as a playground and why not? It's a park. The night we were there, one of the local hoodlums was riding around the park on his motorcycle at 3:30 AM but took off when the sheriff's deputy arrived for one of his periodic security tours through the park. A sewage lift station in the park was undergoing repairs and the crew arrived at 7:00 AM and cranked up their contractor generator. The Milk River makes a horseshoe bend around the campground. We walked up on the levee to get a view and saw where about a dozen rusted automobiles had been pushed over the levee on the far side. Some guy was doing wheelies on his ATV down Main Street. Hey, this is the Wild West, right? To put this all in perspective, this camping experience was slightly better than Wal-Mart's parking lot and the price was only $3.00 more. If you decide to stay here, have a nice steak dinner at the Great Northern Restaurant. - Comdac

Very disappointed. For what here at you get rate is $10-15 to high. They have 7 pull through sites and 6-8 back ins. Sites are so close together that we would almost hit the neighbor's slide outs with ours. The picnic table had broken seat boards. Dogs running loose and the owners did not pick up their mess. - SuperRep

Good for an overnight stay. Sites located behind the motel so no road noises. Large shade trees between sites. Only 1 other RV parked for the night. Laundry was clean and all machines in good working order. Train track was very close but no horns sounded so we slept good. - Boomerific

The hook ups are all placed well. Sites are mostly level. We did have to level front to back so had to unhook. We do not have slides, so sites were not too narrow for us.
I can understand that many people would be turned off by the train noise, but I am a train enthusiast. (My grandparents lived in a 'train town' and I have fond memories of hearing the trains. There was a roundhouse in their town so lots of activity day and night.) You mostly hear the trains here at the campground just passing through, even if the trains are very close to the campground. I saw both a passenger train go through as well as a few freight haulers. The whistle blows a distance from here so it is not disturbing.
All in all: I enjoyed my camping here. Even though I did not use the baths/showers, I did check them out and they seemed very clean. I definitely would have used them if I was not self contained.
The staff was very welcoming and I enjoyed talking with them - GO VIKINGS. - janican

Saco Montana claims to be the mosquito capital of Montana. They were so bad there that there was no way we could sit outside or walk to the hot springs. The springs are under cover and there is a bib pool which they dump and refill daily. There is a hot tub, a cold tub and a sauna. They had run out of mosquito spray at their little store. Very quiet and rooftop satellite and Verizon wifi worked well. We probably would not stay here again because of the mosquitos. - rolling homeless

Spent 2 nights here as a stop on our way to Glacier and the Grasslands National Park in Saskatchewan. We were the only over nighter here - there were 2 fulltimers in the park. We were early in the season and the pool was not open. The indoor hotsprings pool and the sauna were both available, but we didn't use them. The "bathhouse" is an older building with 1 toilet per side and a couple showers per side. All of it seemed old. The sites and roads are all gravel and it was loosely packed. Getting in and leveling was not a problem but definitely will need jack pads. No wi-fi and ok ATT service. Biggest problem was the mosquitoes. There were so thick, even with spray on, we barely could go outside. Staff at the front desk met us when we drove up and got us checked in quickly. - Gsykora

A relatively new, work in progress campground. Very quiet - almost zero highway or train noise - and very dark (nice views of the milky way). The access roads and sites are a heavy layer of river gravel over dirt. Access roads are a decent size. The gravel is not packed down yet in the sites so it is very loose and may require jack pads. Sites have a lot of loose gravel that is significantly crowned so side-to-side leveling is highly dependent on positioning within the site. Our site sloped towards the front, but not so much that we couldn't level although we did have to pull out our extra step. Adequate site width with struggling grass, picnic table, and fire ring. Some sites have shade (mainly the backins) while others are entirely in the sun (the pullthrus). Power ok, water pressure low (40psi static, 34 psi flowing) - slight metallic smell, sewer ok (but slight sewer smell after heavy rains). No campground wifi. Verizon 4 bars with good speed. No TMobile service. No recycling on site (aluminum can recycle in the town of Malta). Possible road bike riding along the shoulders of US 2. We would probably stay here again. - SeaLandSkyPhoto
