7 Parks near Wisdom, Montana
Aug 2016 - $30.00
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

We stayed one night in this plain but fully functional park in our 5th wheel trailer. The owner came by to collect the fee and we found him to be very knowledgeable about the local area. We enjoyed watching the herd of sheep in the pasture west of the park. Lots of mosquitoes when we were there. Don't miss Crossing Restaurant. Excellent food and service and free Wi-Fi. We will make this park a stop over when in the area. Park is on the NE Edge of Wisdom. Its entrance was somewhat difficult to locate. - Larry J

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

This is a small "Mom & Pop" RV park. We had their only 50 amp site. The campground was not busy so we had the run of the place. It is a beautiful setting in the pine trees with the Bitterroot River running right by the park. This is a good place to spend a night or even two. If we were to pass this way again we'd stay here if we could get the 50 amp site. - Trackman

Calling this a "resort" may be a bit of a stretch, but it's a great little park under tall pines and next to a stream. Only a few sites, and only one with 50A, but they're fairly level gravel pull-thrus with adequate spacing. No cable or WiFi, but surprisingly a few OTA stations. Lots of trees, but a few holes for a tripod satellite mount. Verizon cell/data worked well. Some truck noise from the highway, but fairly quiet at night. The store has basic items but the restaurant wasn't open this early in the year. - Meanderman

Very nice small park. Gravel roads and sites with some large pine trees at the rear. Our rooftop dish worked in site 1 and the 50 amp power, water, and sewer worked fine. Friends in site 3 had to move as their EMS showed bad power at that site and would not allow AC power to their RV. We planned for 1 night but enjoyed the peace, scenery, birds and fishing. 2 members of our group fished and caught a few in the stream. We had a good breakfast at the store's restaurant and went to Big Hole Nat'l Battlefield. - big greg

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.

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 a great little park. Only 9 back in spaces but adjacent to the north fork of the Salmon River. Wonderful owners. If they have enough demand, they make a great pizza which you can eat on a deck over the river. Traffic noise is the only reason I didn't give it a 10. - mmaill01

I just LOVE this little RV Park. It is located right on the North Fork of the Salmon River! There is 12 to 15 feet of grass separating you from the river. So close and simply gorgeous! Easy access off Hwy 93. Big Rig friendly. The sites are wide and quite long. The park is well maintained and extremely clean. This park is a treasure!!! In the morning we enjoyed sitting in our favorite camp chairs with a hot cup of coffee, watching the river.
We stayed here for over a month because we could not bring ourselves to leave! While here we checked out the other RV parks in the area. This one has them all beat and you can not beat the price. $20 night, $120 week and $360 month (Aug-Sept 2015) Thurs - Sun the restaurant opens at 5 p.m. serving the best thin crust pizza ever! They serve beer and wine & offer free WiFi. No cell service. The owners are very friendly and take great pride in their park. - Susan and Craig

Would normally not give a park a "9" without cement pads, asphalt drive ways and no pool. But this small park is of such great value and beauty that it deserves the higher rating. All sites are located on the North Fork of the Salmon river about 15 feet from the stream. The owner was eager to please and took great pride in his park. Very easy access and the sites are wide and long. All of the utilities are well located. The only downside is there is no cell service but the wife was excellent. We would stay here again. - sjones
