This park was cooler than the other areas we visited in the east. Lots of nice pine trees. Very tight narrow turn by office to get to sites. Big rigs and motor homes with toads would have great difficulty. We had to back up a few times to get into that narrow road. Not much room to swing around to get in straight. The park has NO water pressure. You would have trouble taking a shower or doing anything with water. Mentioned to office lady and she said they had 35 pounds of water pressure. Most RV parks have more than that! All we got was a very small stream out of the faucets. We camped at Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Parkh Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first time in our new Montana and the first time in an RV camp ground. Has the nicest and most helpful owners. He guided us to our level site and helped with the hook ups. It is a quiet, beautiful and peaceful area. We would return. We camped at Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Parkh Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is located near the expressway and a good place to spend the night. I'm not sure I could recommend an extended stay because the place looks like it needs to be remodeled. To enter the campground, you have to go up a significant hill and pull a very tight turn around the camp office. Big rigs pulling a car or trailer would be challenged here. The gentleman who greeted us actually walked us to the site, which was level and we didn't have to unhook. That was nice. One other note, they don't take plastic but will take your personal check or cash. We camped at Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Parkh Lakes in a Travel Trailer.
Date of Stay: April, 2009 - $25.00
Pulled in here and there was nobody working in the office, or anywhere on the campground. There were a few other campers in here but from the looks of the grass that had grown around the tires I think they hadn't been used in awhile. Thought about just pulling into a site and paying in the morning but I couldn't figure out where the sites were, no markings, no pads, no gravel. The park looked overgrown and in need of some general maintenance. I didn't stay the first time and I probably wouldn't try to stay again. We camped at Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Parkh Lakes in a Motorhome.
This hillside park is just a mile off of Interstate 77, just north of the mountains. A good place to stop for a night or so. As you enter this park, the first impression will be that the somewhat hilly roads and many trees will not accommodate your big rig, but as you continue on you will find that there are good clearances and many suitable sites. Very helpful resident management (call in advance, since you should ask for their help in getting to your site - some sites blend in well with the surrounding areas.) Tall pine trees and a few hardwoods shade most sites. Interior roads are gravel and dirt but well maintained. Most sites are level enough. You can beat the heat here. The park is located at an elevation of about 2700 ft. so it is relatively cool here even on days when it is hot in the lower cities. The overnight low temp on June 19, 2008 was 49 degrees. There are two ponds stocked for fishing and the surrounding lawns make a nice venue for tent camping. Some fast food places and motels are located just off the I-77 exit. There is no cable TV or Wi Fi, but at $28, this is a good value for a quiet overnight stop. We camped at Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Parkh Lakes in a Motorhome.
