I have no idea why anyone would give this place more than a 2.

Sites are very close, some have 30amp, some 50amp. They say concrete pads. Well there idea of concrete pads are two strips just big enough to the duels to fit on. Very small lawn area, the rest is gravel. Most seem to be permanents, a few with lots of junk under and around. The pull throughs face the neighbors across the street. Your nose is right against the sidewalk.

Trees on ether side of the front of coach just enough room for the coach.

Being a retired Electrician the electrical scares the hell out of me.

Boxes that are not meant to be located outside with silicone seal to make them waterproof, which is peeling away.

If I had known any of this would have keep on going.

There's not even a grocery store. The hamburger joint across the street if so fifthly I walked out and all I wanted was ice cream.

Employee or owner did not even wash his hands when coming in from smoking Nasty place. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Motorhome.

Two spaces (19 & 20) are great for motorhomes towing and allow toad to be left connected or connected without moving coach. Sites are gravel with two concrete strips for vehicle tires. Grassy strip with wooden picnic table between sites. 50 AMP, water, sewer. wifi worked good. Sewer was below grade which allowed good draining of sewer hose. Paid extra $2 for 30 cable channels although some channels were grainy. No fenced dog park but large grassy area for walking dogs. Lots of wild bunnies. Security light near site 20 was either burned out or turned off. Some train noise but not bad. One private toilet/sink/shower room each for men and women. Rate paid included $2 for cable. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Motorhome.

The manager was very nice. The location is in town, but ok. A bit run down. You must like trains if you stay here. 24 hours a day! Didn't bother me that much. However, my issue came from whoever it is that is the caretaker of the park. My second night there I lost my water. It was on the cold side so I switched to the tank. Next day, still no water. Cable is $2 a day. I have satellite radio so wasn't sure I'd use it. Initially I hooked it up and did a 30min channel scan, didn't watch it again until I wanted to see the presidential debate... Turned it on only to find no cable. I had told the manger I would pay the cable if I used it. The next morning I went out to see what was wrong with the water situation. I found the water had been turned off and the cable unconnected! I left a message for the manager to give me a call, never received a response. Nice town, but this really downed my stay :o( We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed 1 night here. Pull through sites were green grass with concrete strips (like new) running down the center for you trailer wheels. Sites were pretty close together, side by side, and not angled. Pull through sites were on the south side but you had to drive over a half-sized curved curb when you exited (just go slow). We stayed connected to our 34' foot 5th wheel.

Quiet park. Water pressure good. Electricity fine.

Sewer hookups were in the ground and in a covered box. The box wasn't large enough to allow us to put in the screw-in connector and the right angled connectors we all have on the ends of our sewer hose. So we didn't use the screw-in connector, we just put the angled end of the hose in the hole and it didn't seem to splash out. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

45' motorhome and fit just fine. Good wifi and nice people. Sites are close together but cement and grass with picnic table were great. Only negative was train whistle but that's expected! Stayed 3 nights and will stay again. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Motorhome.

Very tight spaces. My neighbor's awning was within 6 inches of my slide out, and they were in a Scamp. The so-called pull through spaces are street side and leave the vehicle being towed out in the parking area, in the way of other RVs coming in. If you're towing a 5th wheel or TT, you must unhook once you get the RV in place. All of the sites are not 50 amp, though they will tell you they are. Right in Ranchester, taking up 3 blocks on route 14. Convenient to I-90. The hookups and the next site's picnic table are right next to each other. Would you want to dine next to your neighbor's sewer hookup? We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small park with very tight spots. When parked with another motorhome next to us, we were within touching distance of each other. Would not stay here again. The train noise was loud and often. You have to pay extra to use the showers and restrooms. The spots were not long enough for big rigs. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice older park. Has some permanent residents but not trashy. Has cable, but it will cost you $1.75. Wi-Fi was strong. Each site has paved pads to pull onto, and each site has a picnic table. Small patch of grass between each site, plenty of room for the slide to go out. Check in was easy, and the lady was very friendly and helpful. Don't know if they had a shower or laundry, did not look into it. Would stay here again. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Restrooms and showers were clean but only one for each sex. Site was level but you had to put your tires on the concrete strips. Because of this we used use boards. Site access was adequate and park roads were okay. Internet was good. Marginal TV from Sheridan so we used their cable and had to pay extra. Quiet park. We had made reservations but found no one to greet us until later. There is a board in the screen porch where sites are posted. Park was not busy because school had started. Wind was bad so we didn't get to the Custer Battlefield, so we took a couple of days off. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Motorhome.

We were looking for a campground on a return trip from Texas to Montana in late Nov. At that time of year there are very few open, this one was so kudos to them for that. Not only were they open but they stayed open late to accommodate our late check in. Very friendly staff and since we slept with the windows closed, train noise was not an issue. Also there is plenty of room within the park to walk your dog. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The only good thing that can be said is that there is an ice cream shop 2 minutes from this campground. There was nobody there to greet us when we arrived, they had no record of my reservation once someone showed up and I never got the receipt I was promised. The bathrooms were clean however, they were bathrooms for 1 only. This campground is a parking lot in the middle of town that someone bought and divided up to park RV's. There is no space between RV's and a train goes by blowing it's whistle every hour or so. There is no where to walk your dog except down the residential streets where there are dogs barking and growling at you the whole way. We spent all our time in the trailer and prayed for the day to be over. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were very disappointed with this park. The website does not reflect the reality. The park is located on the main street of the small town of Ranchester and has parking lot ambiance. We were exhausted from travelling but were kept awake all night by a constant never ending stream of freight trains, whistles blowing, passing close by. On the plus side, the owner was charming and personable and very helpful. We would not recommend this park if you are looking for rest, and although there were many full timers there, we cannot imagine a long term stay would be any more restful. We would not camp here again. We camped at Lazy R Campground in a Travel Trailer.
