This park was not our first choice but 2nd as the other was full. We were not displeased when we pulled up and found the park in a forest like setting. Although the park is off a interstate the noise was blocked and sounded like wind through the trees. The park does have a pool outside but we did not use it. It seemed a little odd that there is a charge for pool use - perhaps for maintenance. The sites are gravel and we did have to do a bit of leveling but not a problem. We were greeted by the owner/manager and although not overly friendly very nice. The showers were clean but kind of like a mass shower room. It was a little tight in the shower and the curtain on the outside of the shower was a small wrap around. There was a code to be used to get into the restroom/shower area which gave some security. Close to Kalispell. We would come back if we were in this area.
This is a large lake and had a swim area for families with a bit of a hike if you were not parked close. This was a fun area and we stayed an extra day. The sites were very large, we parked the camper had a large tent set up and another vehicle park in the same area. We saw deer in the area and plenty of squirrels. Large trees and lots of room to move around. Although we don't pull a boat there was a very nice ramp to use. This park also had large cabins that are rented out. Showers were clean but as it is a state park there are normal flying bugs that come in. It is very dark after the sun goes down and you should have a flash light (a young girl swore she saw a snake cross in front of her. We would definitely stay here again and probably for a longer period of time.
The use of a state park for camping always has some down falls and this one was fine for the couple nights we spent there. It was close enough to drive to the diamond mines (great family activity). The restrooms were clean although there were some flying insects. It was very dark after the sun went down I would suggest you take a flashlight if using the showers after dark. We would return it was a nice public park.
Only thing this park had going for it, was the on site swimming in the Hot Springs. If we were not going to use this it would not be worth staying here. The site was a bit dusty and the parking was not level. The showers were small concrete cubicles, not very clean, with no air ventilation. I thought I saw a large spider web with spider! (Had it been true, my daughter and some other people might have gotten a show with me running outside!) At around 3:30 AM we felt we had a train running through our camper with the whistle blowing! Had not realized the tracks were so close. Also the highway is right above the park. One other possible good thing going, was that it did have some shade. WiFi was available but to get on we were told that we should sit closer to the office as the trees (?) could interfere with it. Never was able to get on. We would not stay here again, but looking at the other RV Parks, we probably would not stay in Thermopolis.
I was very pleased with this campground. After reading other reviews we were a little nervous. We found the check-in person to be very friendly and informative. There was very little noise after dark except for an occasional mooing from the cows in the field. There were sites with shade available. The hook-up went smoothly with electric, water and sewer. The bathroom/shower room was one of the cleanest we have used in our travels (from June 1st 2010.) There is a secure lock on the door of the restroom/shower so I felt very safe. It is dark when the sun goes down, no street lights which I liked. The grounds are well cared for and the sites were fairly level gravel. We used two levelers. We would definitely stay here again. Close to the Hot Springs resort the park also has a coupon for this (we did not use it).
