Great location to tour Virginia City and Nevada City, a short drive away from both. The owners are great people and very accommodating. While the sites are close most campers are respectful of everyone. Due to the extreme dry conditions no fires were allowed however the town did have fireworks on the Fourth of July and the view was awesome from the deck of the office. The laundry room is very small and clean with 1 washer & dryer. Had a great time here and would return if we are ever in the area again. When we were there there is a for sale sign for the Rv Park.

Tips for other Campers:
Tour Virginia City and Nevada City. Plenty of tours to take in town
This is a lovely, small hillside park right outside historic Virginia City, MT. The hosts were friendly, helpful, and hard workers. A cow moose and calf visited in the evening. All of our needs were met, and we'll go back next year, Lord willing. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice Park with all the amenities. Close to Virginia City and all attractions in this area. The Park is clean and orderly and quiet. Owners/Managers are friendly and helpful and very nice people. They will do anything to make your stay enjoyable in their Park. We found our stay here very pleasant and did a lot of sightseeing in Virginia City. You can't ask for more. Do not miss the Virginia City Players performance. Very very worthwhile and fun. The WiFi was somewhat unreliable in the Park but I am not sure whether to attribute that to the Park's signal or to my own computer. Difficult to tell. A large motor home parked between us and the Office might also have contributed to a somewhat unstable WiFi signal. We would return. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
The park is a short distance from Virginia City. The owners/managers are very friendly, helpful and knowlegable about the area. The park is well maintained -- laundry facilities and bathrooms are very clean. We enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park is 1/2 mile east from the town of Virginia City and if you like to hike, then walk to town because the return trip is completely uphill. There are many activities in town to enjoy: The Brewery Follies, Opera House, Dog & Grog Weekend, Art Fair weekend and much more. This is the perfect place to stay while visiting Virginia/Nevada cities. It is a very clean park, especially the bathrooms. The owners and their managers were all fun to be around and very nice. We will stay there again. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.
Campground has gravel sites, good utilities but no cable and no stations available on the antenna. It is within walking distance of town if you are in shape and don't mind a short walk along the roadside with no sidewalk. Owners and hosts are very friendly and helpful. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.
We were reluctant to stop here due to previous reviews. Then we saw they had changed hands. So we stayed one night and it was fine. They are indeed under new mgmt and the new owners are apparently trying to change previous reviews. The scenery is beautiful, and it is located very close to Virginia City. No discount for GS, etc., and the price seemed too high. Gravel sites which were a bit of a pain to get the MH level. All in all though, I would stay here again. Free Wi-Fi which worked fine.

What a difference from our visit last year! The new owners have definitely made improvements in the park, and the staff is very friendly. We traveled with our two dogs, and this year is was very pleasant. If you have had a bad experience before, I would recommend giving them another try. The rates are reasonable. $35/FHU, $30/W/E. Cabins too. The bathrooms are very clean. I loved it. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is under new management by RV people who own the park. The last owners let the park go down but new owners are working hard to clean up problems and rebuild the place. Park is OK and I think you will see a large change here soon. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.
Quite amazing this campground is in business. A for sale sign out the front - possible for the cabins or perhaps the whole campground. Owner was extremely rude, very upset about a tent on the grass. Wanted it moved immediately, stood there to see if we did move it. We in fact moved it, out of his park, and our whole party as well. Were going to stay for 2 nights in Virginia City, left after only one due to this owner. Called the Chamber to let them know how 2 big families left the town after only one night stay. No response from Chamber. Would never stay again, too strict, too rude and quite frankly, felt this owner would resort to violence to get his way. Virginia City however was pretty good, for 1-2 day visit. Easy to do the town in an afternoon and just keep on travelling. Don't even think of camping here. Looked like a nice KOA just 20 minutes west in Alder. Wi-Fi worked intermittently due to power failures. Water hook ups had a short thread, difficult to get a good seal. Bathrooms under construction. Nothing remarkable about this RV park. Hope some one else buys this place, it is in a convenient location. Beware if you do stay and lock your doors. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
When we were here the park was up for sale and it had been neglected. The managers were very friendly and nice. The owner, however, wasn't pleasant and made our visit uncomfortable. It would be nice if the park was "dog friendly." A divided play yard (one for big dogs and one for small dogs) would be great. Maybe it's something the new owner will consider as many travellers have dogs. Our small dogs got out once and the owner yelled at us from across the park to keep our dogs inside!!! So glad to hear the park is under new ownership and we look forward to our visit this summer. With new owners, those who wrote bad reviews might want to consider trying this park again. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.
Park was quaint and secluded. Could have used a little mowing in places but considering that the snow had not been gone long, it was OK. Managers were helpful and courteous, seemed concerned about us being comfortable. I understand park is under new ownership. Former owner was a bit of a tyrant but we enjoyed our stay here in spite of him. I will return and am sure will find it just as cozy and probably refurbished, painted, mowed and enjoyable. Hope they consider that folks travel with pets and put in a small dog run. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.
We have not stayed in this park for a number of years and will not unless under new ownership. From the posts I just read in 2009, nothing has changed. We were told there were some "creeks" that the children might enjoy..more like small drainage ditches that were kind of hard to find. No shade and not much of anything else for the kind of money they charged. My advice would be to visit Virginia City, then head back to Dillon or maybe Bannack. It is a nice "Ghost town" and has camping. Sure hope you will not judge a Montana visit by these people. We camped at Virginia City RV Park in a Motorhome.

The owners are apparently insane. Our family and some friends of ours decided to go for the weekend to Virginia City to see a play. Both of our families have children. After pulling up to the "Office" and being rudely treated by some angry passive-aggressive woman (one of the owners?) who made it clear she did not want us there, we received our THREE PAGE list of rules and restrictions (that should have been our first clue), on what we could and could not do at this little piece of RV heaven. Skeptically, yet still hopefully optimistic, we pulled into our treeless, dust-bowl of a campsite. No sooner had we opened the doors to let the children and the dogs out, he (The Owner) came barreling out of his cabin and bellowed at us from his front porch. "Get your damn dogs on a leash NOW!!@ZXX. Regardless to say, our optimism immediately evaporated and we tossed everyone back into the cars and drove back to the entrance where the office was to collect our money. My husband went in and moments later I hear the Owner screaming and swearing at my husband, saying he was going to call the sheriff. My husband kept saying "Fine, we'll leave, but I want my money back." It went on from there and when The Owner came around from the back of the counter, everyone feared that he was going to attack my husband. It was absolutely crazy. Long story short, don't stay there.
