7 Parks near Three Forks, Montana
Jul 2015 - $24.00
The price is a bit steep for dry camping but the park is well maintained and the Montana sky is amazing. Vault toilets but they are by far the cleanest vault toilets I have ever seen. They clean them daily and they actually don't stink. Sites are almost all pull thrus, most with lots of space. Beautiful park. - Wendle123

Despite telephone conversations with this Park's Staff and the Reservations Representative we ended in a site that our 36' RV just fit into. The Toad ended up parked so close to our rig's side that we couldn't fit between them to walk. Fire pit was weed choked. Table was in good shape but filthy. Not a shade tree in site and the sun just bakes the area. Campground is nothing more than a gravel and dirt parking lot with most sites being double bump-outs that you share with your neighbor. Despite daily spraying, mosquitoes are horrible! Towards evening the would-be campers coming and going to check for a site stir up the dust to the point that one can really feel for the early explorers who suffered here. Its a shame as the history and beauty of the area screams to be explored and enjoyed. $30/nite is over-kill for conditions like these. Central water, one M/F combined pit toilet, no dump. All the mosquitoes you care to feed, all the dust you can eat, all the sweat you want to pour out. Noise until well after mid-night goes unchecked from late arrivals, chopping wood, drunks and, for some reason, most think that you came here to hear them singing or playing their fiddle, banjo or violin thru the early morning hours. Two Hosts and One Ranger who all go home or into their air-conditioned RVs (they have FHU) at dusk. - RVFRab

The scenery at this state park could not be prettier. Sites are well spaced and most have plenty of trees for shade. The campground was largely empty for our stay, but would be difficult to maneuver around and possibly noisy if all were full. Camp hosts and state staff were very friendly. Although there are no hookups of any kind, Verizon cell service was excellent. - docmkk

Nice park. Small but nice laundry room. Plenty of room to walk and to walk the dog. Small store and gift shop in case something is forgotten. Staff was very nice! Great ice cream! - FT Rver

We liked this campground about 30 miles west of Bozeman at the headwaters of the Missouri River. It appears to have been a KOA. There is plenty of shade, the ladies running the campground are very helpful, and they sell great ice cream at the office. When we were there, there were domestic rabbits running around the grounds...cute. It is near good trails and very doable hiking at the headwaters. Three Forks has some good restaurants. The campground attracts a fascinating mix of bicyclists, tent campers, foreign visitors, Class A's, trailers of all ages and 5th wheels.
Potential campers should be aware that many sites have no sewer, some are 30 amp. The sites nearest to the road are noisy but it is bearable. For me the biggest limitation was the men's room. I thought it needed serious renovation. It was cleaned daily, but the porcelain was permanently stained, but when you're in a space without sewer you have no choice. My wife said the women's room was fine, so.... Also, there was no cable, over-the-air TV was minimal.
We'd stay here again but farther from the road. Hopefully buy the the men's restroom and showers will be better. - Solem8s

Stayed here as an overnight, but were very happy with this campground, and were puzzled why the rating wasn't higher in the Good Sam Travel Guide. We thought it was a gem!
Campground was easy to find off the interstate, but goes back far enough you could request a site off the frontage road (as ours was) and it will be nice and quiet. Gravel roads and gravel sites, but all well maintained. Most all sites seemed to be pull thru's - which is nice - and most of them were very level, although we a couple that had a bit of a slope. The sites were also roomy with grassy areas in between, wifi was good and there was a great area for dog walking. We'd definitely stay here again if we pass thru the area. - R.T.

Host was rude and hateful. Facilities were filthy. Campground was dirty with animal feces every where. Train noises all night. - Sherry_C
Jul 2015 - $30.00
This park is by the train tracks so you hear the train all night long.
Its an older park only has 30 amp service so you can not use the air.
Spots are tight so you can not use all your slides if you have a big rig.
You can not use your awing either. The bathrooms were not very clean and most of the washers were out of order.
One of the full time residents had a dog off the leash he was running around pooping every where and the owner did not clean it up. - B mack

OK for overnight stop. Friendly office staff. Many permanent residents. Narrow sites, some too close for slides on one side. Tight for big rigs, but we were able to get our 38' 5th wheel in without too much trouble. - FTRVwCats

We stayed here as a stopover between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. Our campground fee includes the out-of-state user fee. The campground was very nice, and the cave tour is amazing. Campsites are level and well spaced out. You camp in a valley with mountains surrounding you. Hubby was not able to use his satellite dish--trees were not the problem--must be the towering mountains. The bathrooms/showers are a bit dated, but kept very clean. The Visitors Center is a short walk away, and the caves are a 3 mile drive up the mountain. - RagTopDay

No park admission fee if your camping. Has a dump station with water in the back half of the campground. Campground roads are blacktop with gravel sites. The entire campground is on a slant so I needed extra blocks under the stabilizer jacks. Definitely big rig friendly as there are not a lot of mature trees though lots of grass though to play. Restrooms were clean with pay showers. Playground for kids. Didn't go to the cave as this was just a stopover on a longer trip. Beautiful view with mountains all around. We would stay here again. - Blu1e

Nightly rate includes park entrance fee. Site was 50 amp electric, but no water or sewer. Verizon cell/MiFi reception was inconsistent; sometimes fast, sometimes slow. No satellite reception, blocked either by trees or the surrounding mountains. Site was sloped, leveling jacks lifted the front tires 4" off the ground. We enjoyed our stay at this quiet campground. - Dave51
May 2016 - $45.00
Stayed overnight first part of May was treated well, paid $35.00, A little high for overnight but WiFi was good and could stay hooked up. Came back the end of May was charged $45.oo and was treated very rudely. The lady that was behind the counter basically accused me of lying when I said I had only paid $35.00 two weeks ago. She told me to park in the number 2 spot, it had a full time trailer in it, I took number 1 spot went back to tell her where I was and she said that can't be the computer shows #2 empty. We would have gone on down the road but we were done in. We will not be staying here again. - lennet

With all due respect to the previous reviewer, I think/hope he was joking giving this place a ten. It's way overpriced, probably because it's pretty much the only RV park around and they can get away with it. It's not much more than a parking place for the night. Buggy as hell so we couldn't sit outside even if we wanted to. Of course who WOULD want to sit outside and listen to the deafening sound of all the traffic speeding by on the highway right out front? And to top it all off they don't even let you walk your dog in the park. I guess you're supposed to walk them along the highway! Plan accordingly when you are in this area and find another place to stay. We didn't and that's why we got stuck here. Oh yeah, the wi-if did work good. At $35/night for this dump it should! - Pdxjoanne

Services for price charged are inadequate. Bathrooms and showers antiquated and dark. Require a key deposit. Most of sites are pull-through but because of road design, some numbers can be confusing to patrons as well as office help. Did not find the grounds to be very well maintained. We had a hole on our site that just had an orange flag stuck in it. Chose this campground so we could make a day trip to Helena. Might suggest checking out campground behind Wheat Montana which we discovered on our way east. - shadowrider

This park seems very over priced for what they offer. Another review from a year ago, says they are under going renovations. Well, they still are! Lousy entrance road. Bad customer service. I complained about the price for a 10 hour stay. The gentleman said it wasn't his fault I arrived at 10 pm. So I paid $112.87 for a little electric and water. The park attractions close at 10 pm. Rude and uncaring! Go someplace else to enjoy yourself. - randy lay

When we called the day before to inquire about the campground, we were under the impression that this was a KOA campground. When we drove to the campground there was no sign signifying that a KOA existed. Not until we entered the building did we find out that it was no longer a KOA. They did, however, take our KOA card discount but we were told that after this season they will not honor the KOA discount or any other discount cards.
While we tried to check in, the clerk apparently had no idea how to use the "new" computer system because not once but 4 times she tried to enter in our information. After the 3rd time, I suggested that she write the information down and bring our receipt out to our site once she was able to figure out how to enter it.
The sites are very close together. When I went to use the laundry facilities, I found out that the washer costs $2 and the dryer costs .50 per 10 minutes. We travel all over the country and this was the most expensive laundry we've ever come across.
The WiFi is terrible! There were very few RVs at the campground so there shouldn't have been any problem with the WiFi. When I reported the problem to the clerk, I was told "oh sorry" but nothing was done to fix the problem.
The only good thing about this campground is that it is close to the hot springs. The campground gives you a "free" wristband for one day's use. Sorry, I don't think that justifies the cost of this lousy campground.
The final straw was when I reported a strong skunk smell near our site to the office clerk, I was told "Yes, there is a family living somewhere near you". This is ridiculous, why isn't the problem being remedied. - Sue H

We stayed four nights. As previous trips the campground was clean and all services worked without issue. The east portion of the campground was not open and looked to being renovated and upgraded. The washroom facilities are showing there age but were clean and functional. The campground office was only open a couple of hours in the morning and afternoon and was closed all day Saturday. Only negative note is that the hot springs next door is now playing music for it's outdoor pools until 11:00pm. This could be heard slightly inside our RV though we were 100+ yards away. We received an off season rate. We will come back again. - sfw1058

Quiet and peaceful to a point. We stayed here on a monthly basis for several months as it was the cheapest decent option in the area. There is no Wi-Fi, cable etc, but is right by the river. We had a tree shaded lot. Ended up next to rude neighbors that would leave their dog out all the time and prevent us from doing things on our own rig. Finally ended up calling animal control a couple times. Managers said to have talked to the man many times issue finally was resolved as we neared time to leave the park. Nothing is the same for every RV'er in the park. What is good for one is not good for all, seems to be rules made up as they go along. Electric is not grounded and there were many surges that took place and we now have some electrical issues as a result. This is the 2nd park we had ever stayed at so we were still learning what to look for. If I had no other choice I would stay here but on short term basis only and not hooked into electric. No issues with water or sewer. Management changed hands, first managers seemed pretty good and hard working, 2nd set not sure wasn't there long enough to know them well enough. I would look around however and stay elsewhere. They did allow kids and up to 2 pets. We were here in a 5th wheel and had enough parking for 2 pickup trucks. Was approximately 10 miles out of town, but on the way towards West Yellowstone. - moosemama3
