This is a self-service city park campground. You drive in past the ball fields, turn left and you will see a big parking lot camping area followed by some nice pull-thru and back-in sites situated on a tree lined loop. The pull-thru sites are on the right and and are on the side of a big park area in the middle where the restrooms are. The 30 amp electric worked well. No sewer hook-up but there was a dump station. As other reviews noted, water hook-ups are not where you'd expect. - Bay Area Early retirees

I stayed here two nights in one of the pull through sites while driving through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. The park is an open grassy area with a few trees that is located below a dam. There are pull through and back in sites and a weird area that has electric and water on either side of a gravel road but no defined sites. Maybe tent sites??? Back in sites had grills. No fire rings. Most had picnic tables. Water at the pull through sites is indeed a long way away. I used 75 feet of hose to reach. Road is paved for first 2/3rds of loop and then rest is gravel. Sites are gravel with an adjacent grassy area and appeared relatively level. Numbering of sites was erratic to non-existent. There is little shade but first two pull through sites open up to a grassy area with big cottonwood trees. I had one of these sites and it was lovely. $25 a night for tent campers and RVs regardless of whether your site has or doesn't have water. Convenient dump station. I was there on a weekend. There were four or five campers on Friday night and two tent campers on Saturday night. Self serve. Nobody on site but Sheriff did drive through. Very quiet except for train noise which is in the distance and not bothersome. The trailhead of a paved hiking/interpretive trail is about 1/4 mile up Oilfield Avenue. It is a really nice trail but it is a 5 mile loop and there's no way to get back to the park. There is also a short trail that leads up to the top of the dam. There is fishing in the lake behind the dam. Great stopping point for those driving on to West Glacier. I didn't use the restrooms. Verizon service was excellent. - SoloRed

We stayed here for one night, on our way to Banff and Jasper, Alberta. Also stayed one night on the return home (to the Midwest). Easy to get to from the expressway, but far enough away that you don't hear any noise. Trains do go thru the area during the night, so if you are a light sleeper, this may be a problem. Very few people were camped here on our stays. It is owned by the city, and grounds are very clean.
Very strange and inconvenient set up though, as not all sites have water hook up (even though everyone pays the same nightly rate, even tenters). Those sites with water are very, very far away from the electric. Whoever designed this campground obviously didn't know a thing about rv-ing. So unless you have a really long extension cord, or an extra hose, you won't be able to use both water and electric.
Interior roads are mostly gravel and dirt, with quite a few pot holes. Some sites are back in, and there are some pull thrus as well. Certainly not a destination campground, but for an overnight stay it works just fine. In addition, even though $25 is very reasonable for full hook up, for a city park I think that's a bit high. Other city parks we've stayed at across the country charge anywhere from $12-$15 for full hook up.
Mostly open and full sun, a few sites do have a little shade.
Cg is on honor system, you put your check or cash in an envelope and drop it in the slot. - fly girl

Right off the freeway and perfect for a one night stop on our way to Glacier National Park. End-to-end sites with room behind our 45' motor home to leave the trailer attached. - monamonaco

Avoid this place!!!! Picked this park not being familiar with the area. But mostly because we needed to use the wifi to make reservations for the rest of the trip. When we checked in, we specifically asked if the wifi was good, and was assured it would be the best we ever had. Guy at desk even gave us a hint about putting the computer by a window in our motorhome as the fiberglass is what caused problems for any wifi. Turned out this was park owner speak for " OUR WIFI SUCKS BAD AND WILL BE UNUSABLE. When we first got there we were all alone and got decent wifi, but after 3 or 4 more campers pulled in it began to get very slow and unusable, so I decided to wait till everyone was sleeping to finish my wifi work. The park was empty except for 4 or 5 campers including us, and I thought that would surely work. I started trying to get back on at about 10:30 and kept trying till well after midnight. Could never get on. The next morning I asked the other campers there if they had any trouble. I got 3 "never could get on"s and 2 didn't try's. As you can tell I was upset... looking at the papers he gave us it says no wifi passwords will be given out after 9PM. I'm pretty sure he turns it off at 9, so it is not available for anyone. I had tried at 3AM when I woke up to go to the bathroom, and again at 6AM when I woke up. Ended up going to the Comfort Inn at 6:30am to use their wifi. When I got back to the campground at 10:00 in the morning the wifi was working again.
Other problems with this park are the layout.. all campsites are situated so that your front door and awning stick out into the interior drive so that if you want to sit in the shade of your awning, you are in the road and getting dusted every time someone comes or goes. I always like to end on a good note so "they had good water pressure". - flyfisher1

Great park for laying over before going into Canada. Check in was easy with a very nice owner. Easy on and off the interstate. Hook ups worked great and were located at middle of site. Sites are all pull through along the interior roads in the park. - roaming around

Really just a parking lot but extremely level cleanest restrooms in 2 months on the road - excellent gas prices - bought breakfast at the Comfort Inn for $6.00 per person because we stayed at the RV park - good value. - ctravelgal04

This is not 8! It will be an 8 when the trees grow in about 10 years, but not now. I totally agree with the last reviewer. "A gravel parking lot behind a Comfort Inn. Full hook ups, good WiFi and Verizon wireless network. Nice bathrooms and showers. Access to pool, hot tub and exercise room. Casino and restaurant inside hotel. We camped at Shelby RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel". The low numbered back-ins are good in terms of sun placement, The pull-thrus have better separation and the grass between sites is better. We will not stay here again. - newbies2016

A small, worn campground just off US 2 (behind the Best Western) Checkin is at the Best Western. Gravel access roads pretty much single lane and a bit narrow for a big rig backing into a site. Somewhat level gravel sites - mix of backin and pull through. Sites are relatively close together. Struggling grass with significant amounts of dog poop between the sites. Big rigs with a toad have to disconnect even for the pull throughs to fit (max site length is 60'). Power ok, did not use the other utilities. Campground wifi good signal strength and speed. Verizon 4 bars, did not check speed. No TMobile signal. No problems with satellite access. We will look elsewhere next time. - SeaLandSkyPhoto

Great Wifi, but bring earplugs! We did a quick overnight here with hopes of exploring Glacier National Park the next day. The RV Campground is behind the Best Western at the corner of a big intersection (I-15 and US-2) with a busy train depot across the road, a highway entrance adjacent, and lots of trucks. You check in at the desk of the Best Western. The regular pices is $35.00 per night, but they honored our Passport America which gave us a 50% discount. The desk at the Best Western prints out a daily update on the status of the roads in Glacier National Park. The hotel also offers campers an "All You Can Eat" breakfast for just $6.00 each, notify the desk clerk if you plan to attend. There are 32 sites that can accomodate 30' to 60' campers, some back-in and some pull-through, gravel, mostly level, a few small trees, and concrete picnic tables, basically wide open and not much to buffer the noise from the trains and highway. The bathrooms and laundry were clean and functional. Tent areas available near the bath house. Sprinklers start at midnight to 7am so don't leave items outside overnight. Unfortunately the air quality worsened during our stay and many roads were closed due to forest fires so we were unable to explore Glacier National Park. - JLFotomeister

Not a 'destination park' but a really good temporary option. Sites are level, long and wide enough. We chose a back in site, but there are pull through, too. All utilities work fine, including strong wi-fi. Clean, modern bathrooms and laundry area. It is close to I-15 and a railroad, but neither was particularly loud or bothersome. Located behind a Shopko and Best Western, so not exactly scenic, but for the Passport America rate, what a bargain! - Katy29

These level gravel sites are located behind the hotel. The utilities worked well but are located at the rear of the sites so have plenty of hose. The hotel is old and looks rough but the area seemed safe. Wi-Fi is available at the office. We would stay here again for an overnight stay. - dandg

Very clean park, spaces were generous, with lots of grass, and picnic tables Only 2 washers in laundry. Access to motel heated pool and sauna. Park is on a hill, with good view of mountains and little road noise. - BertL

Very friendly and nice staff. Adequate AT&T and Verizon signal along with a strong WIFI signal. Spaces are so close together there was no way we could put out our awning. Right in town, but very quiet. Good 50amp power, water and sewage connections. Two city parks nearby with "No pets allowed" signs posted. Nice for a one night stay. - rolltide19

Pondera is a pretty casually run park with grass and gravel sites. We used it for an overnight stop after crossing the border from Canada. A grocery store within quick walking distance enabled us to replenish the larder without unhooking our tow vehicle. Cash payment was requested. - The Borgs

Quiet little RV park on the south side of Conrad, Montana. Place is clean and quiet at night. Laundry room has two washers and driers and like the showers/bathrooms, everything is open 24/7.
Hosts are friendly and accommodating, though they aren't always around. If you pay for 6 nights your 7th night is free: but be sure to pay in advance. I decided to stay longer and hand to wrestle with the hosts to get my 7th night free.
WiFi is satisfactory but not great. Coverage is OK, but during peak hours it crawls along. Better on both counts than many RV parks I have visited. There is a nice sized tree at just about every RV spot. Most are pull throughs. Overall a nice stay. - Johnny Blood

This campground is in town, it's mostly full of long term campers/workers. It was quiet and the bath/showers were clean. There wasn't much grass or shade, it looks shabby. The hostess was very helpful and friendly. Might stay again for one night. - mntraveler

Rate reflects $175/week if paid in cash. Regular rate is $35/night. Don't be turned off by appearances. Stayed here a week while visiting E. Glacier, Browning and surrounding areas. The other RV park in Cut Bank only has water/elec...this park is FHU, the only one in this area. New owner is refurbishing the mobile homes in this park to accommodate long term residents. There are several, very nice/new one room cabins onsite. The owner is very nice and accommodating. Spaces are very wide, with somewhat unlevel grass, but each has ample gravel parking for your tow vehicle. Electric hookup is at rear, so we moved RV back and still reached water/sewer hookups midcoach. Wi-fi is a bit week; cable is down and no OTA signal. Verizon signal strong. Restrooms are extremely clean and spacious. Double curtained showers, each with a seat and ample hooks for hanging. Laundry is next door to bathrooms. Owner is considering hiring work-kampers to help with park upkeep. This will be a very nice park with just a few appearance tweaks to improve curb appeal. Definitely a 'no frills' park, but for the rate and tremendous views towards Glacier, it can't be beat! - texasgal54
