This park is a true hidden gem. 2 other campers here when we arrived, but both left the next day. The only draw back is lack of cell service, but the WiFi was great. You also must expect to deal with mosquitoes. - Vagabonds_41

Good place to stop for a night. Helpful and nice owners. Not particularly scenic but grounds are clean. Owners are working on improvements. Bath/washroom house new and super clean. - Chicago47

We came to Wisdom only to visit Big Hole National Battlefield. The campground is right in the center of town which is logical since only 98 people live here. The campground is not much to speak of although it does have full hookups. If you are close to the front of the campground you get free WiFi from the bar next door. There is no cable or OTA channels so bring a book. A great area if you are looking for downtime.
The owner does not live on site but he was a pleasure to deal with. - John Borajkiewicz

Didn't actually stay here. Drove in, intending to stay, but chose not to. First, the packed dirt roads have potholes that could swallow a Mack truck. Worst I've encountered anywhere. Then, the sites are not very private and are so shrouded in trees the sky isn't visible. It was dark and gloomy. I'm at a loss to understand the prior review. - mockturtle

May Creek Campground (Beaverhead National Forest) is located just off of Highway 43, between Highway 93, Lost Trail Pass and the town of Wisdom, MT. Beautiful campground with lots of Lodgepole Pine. The interior road is dirt and gravel and the aprons are the same. There were a few pot holes in the road but, all and all it wasn’t too bad. Didn’t have any problems driving through the campground nor did we have a problem finding a campsite to fit in. Some sites are big rig friendly. Not very many people there over the weekend so it was very peaceful. Some of the sites are closer together than others and some sites aren’t level. We stayed in site #13 and had enough room (we’re 38’ class A) to get both bedroom slides out, living room slide and awning. The water faucet was just across the road from our site. There are only two non threaded pressurized faucets in the campground. A Water Thief makes filling the tank easier and you can find them at a Camping World. We were able to get our dome satellite in from our site. Long site and almost level. Vault toilets that were very clean but not lit up at night. We didn’t see a camp host in the four days we were there. This is a pack it in pack it out campground, NO garbage service. No cell or Aircard signal (Verizon) there. Closest town that we could get a cell signal was in Sula at the Bitterroot Ranger Station on Highway 93. There is a market in Sula and further to the north in Darby. Closest dump station going east is in Wisdom, Mt. at the Sinclair Gas Station. The other closest dump is in Sula going north on the 93 at the Sula Store & Campground. Big Hole National Battlefield is about 7 miles (from the campground) to the east off of Highway 43. The visit gives you a better understanding of what our government did to not only the Nez Perce Indians but other tribes as well. Very well done movie (25 min.) on the history of the Nez Perce flight and encounters with the 7th Calvary. Campground rates are $10.00 or $5.00 with a Golden Age Pass. We really enjoyed our stay at May Creek and would love to stay there again. - jannie5

The campground is beautiful, under all the pine trees. There are also cabins you can rent but, I didn't see them. There was one outhouse that was a "REAL" outhouse. The only showers and real bathrooms were available at the pool.
Campsites are small with only one pull-through. The rest of the sites are small and would be okay for 15-20 ft trailers, although the plumbing and electric and water placement didn't make sense.
The hot pools were warm. I was surprised at how beat up the pool was. Also, there was a hot tub on a shaky platform and there was mold all over the ceiling and it smelled like mildew. I was really disappointed in the pool and hot tub.
After seeing the hot tub area I didn't even go to the showers. My son said the shower area was kind of rotted and the floor was broken up.
If you want to be self-contained in your camper and don't plan on swimming, it was beautiful. We saw a deer even.
As for the staff: Mind you we went on their off season, but we were told by the guy there that the site we had was $35 a night, and he had no idea about the discount. He couldn't take our money and we pretty much had to chase them down to pay them. When we found the guy (that knows about paying) we were told it was $43 and then a $5 discount per night. We had already spent the night there so there was nothing we could do. - meemers

Price included reservation fee. A gorgeous campground well off the road giving a classic Montana experience. The sites are well separated with lots of trees and shade. There were sites suitable for tents and RVs; ours was a 100 foot pull through. No hookups, but very generous generator hours. The pit toilets were spotless. Lots of wildlife - we had a deer walk through our site 10' from where we were sitting. Verizon signal changed between no service and 1 dot with extended service. The place was very quiet, even on a holiday weekend. Note you will probably have to do some leveling. - UTTransplant

Nicely laid out with paved roads throughout park. However, the road to the park is not paved but is good gravel. Sites are large and set far apart. Far enough from Hwy 93 that there is no road noise. Will accommodate rigs up to 50'. Most sites are shady. Only 4 sites taken mid-week in July. Vault toilets and water throughout park. Host couple on site. Reservations are available. We would camp here again. Rate reflects senior camping rate. - mvano

A lovely spot to visit, the location is beautiful and peaceful. The facilities are very nice, and the staff and owners very helpful. The restaurant has decent food at reasonable prices, and the store has enough variety to satisfy most needs. We'd definitely stop here again. - TomcatRV

This is an isolated park ideal for an overnight stay. The park adjoins a Lewis & Clark Expedition site. Satellite TV is available from a couple of sites despite surrounding mountains. WiFi was weak. The store has a restaurant we didn't try. - Mtmoi

They only have one 50AMP spot at this location that we were lucky to get it. The facilities are clean and well kept. Most camp locations are wooded and cozy. The spots and drive are large and easy to maneuver around between. We stayed here in a 38ft long 5th Wheel and did not have any issues at all. They also have some cute little cabins at this location each with their own porch swing. The property has a fishing pond for children and the camp is also right next to a river. There is a lovely little shop and restaurant at this location as well as gas pumps. The WiFi provided was spotty at best and completely dead once the store closed for the night. AT&T does not get a signal here but Sprint worked for at least phone calls and texting. The employees are friendly and helpful, it really is a lovely place to stay. We plan on staying here again. - Knibbers

This is one of the nicest NFS campgrounds I've been to, and I've been to a lot of them. Right on the East Fork of the Bitterroot River where fly fishermen were hauling in the trout. The host told me the park had flooded in spring and didn't open until early June. Consequently, there is green grass but also mosquitoes. Very small park but very nice. Nice host, too, who really keeps the park spiffy. Site #2 is short, [25' limit] but backs up to the river with easy access. Contrary to a previous review, no ATVs while I was there. - mockturtle

I would have rated this Forest Service campground a lot higher if it wasn't for the campers who used Spring Gulch as their private ATV course. A large group, with at least four ATVs, decided to use the interior campground road for their ATV usage. The noise level was terrible and you were not able to safely enjoy the campground less you hit one of them with your vehicle or they compromised your safety while walking. The peace and serenity of a beautiful setting was ruined by these inconsiderate campers. Forest Service personnel were aware of this situation, but failed to stop the ATV usage. This went on for at least three days.
On the positive side, this is a very nice campground with well placed sites with plenty of trees and privacy along the Bitterroot River. It should have been a great visit but it just goes to show how a few can ruin a good time for the many.
Although I made it with my 5TH Wheel (about 55' total), I had a tough time clearing the tree limbs around the cul-de-sac upon exiting.
Price reflects Senior/Access Pass. - jopa

This National Forest Campground is located on US 93 2.9 mi north of Sula (1/4 mi north of milepost 15)! It has 10 sites, plus 1 bicycle site, with picnic tables, fire rings, and vault toilets. It also has a picnic area and handicapped accessible facilities to include a fishing pier on the river. Campground can accommodate trailers and RV's to 50'. There are no hook-ups but water is available. We booked 2 nights and found it to be so pleasant we booked 8 more nights. Sites are level and all close to the creek flowing through the RV park. We cannot wait to visit this campsite again! The camphosts were friendly and helpful. - ournextstop

This is our second year staying at Waters Edge RV Park & Pizzeria. I didn't think it was possible but the place is even cleaner than last year. All sites are along the river, well manicured and full hook-up (both 30 and 50 amp at each site). The owners are great and the food is awesome. They are going to start serving breakfast in September and we can't wait to try it. - Bend Oregon Camper

This was our first time at this park. Pleasantly surprised. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Some of the campers were here for the season, but most were 1 or 2 nites.
The campground is small and all sites are back-in with adequate room. The river is close to the back of each site.
All were very friendly. We will stop here again if we are in the area. - Vagabonds_41

Rate reflects weekly with military discount. This park is very nice and worth a visit. First, it looks just like the pictures on the internet, authentic. Second, the owners are on property and very active, involved and it shows. They work hard to keep it clean and neat. They are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. There is a restaurant on the property, open Thur-Sun. Food was very good, the pizza great! There is an outdoor eating area as well. They have an extensive video lending library. Campsites are gravel, each with full hook ups and a picnic table. All the sites back up to the North Fork of the Salmon River. Although you are close to Hwy 93, the road noise is not bad and quiets considerably at night. Electric is steady, water pressure good at 48psi. Hook ups are convenient, at back of site. There is no Verizon signal here at all. Not sure about ATT but would doubt it. The parks wifi does work; it works better on a phone than a laptop. It is fine for checking news, email, general and light internet surfing. The surrounding scenery is hillsides, trees. We saw antelope across the road from the park, others have seen elk. Bring what you need or prepare to take a drive. Nearest grocery store is 26 miles in Salmon. There is a small general store in North Fork, but it's very pricey. There are no laundry facilities here. We would stay here again. - Fixn2gocamp
