The back in sites are quite short, while a 40' RV might fit, there would be no room for the tow or towed vehicle to park on the site. The pull through sites are curved and can hold a large rig. The electrical box was so far back we needed all of our 35' power cord to reach it. The 30A power was marginal with voltage fluctuations and large drops with any load. The back in sites are all satellite friendly but only one of the pull through sites is. No credit cards, but personal checks and cash are accepted. This is part of the county fairgrounds. I don't believe the previous review was of this campground, as there are no casinos nor a pool available. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We needed a one night stop on our way to Glacier. This park did that for us and more. However, it's not perfect. The park is part of a large motel/gas station complex. They have done a great job of creating a nice park, but it is between a busy road and a busy railroad yard. If noise is an issue for you, this will be noisy. It was hot and humid when we were here and we ran the AC all night. I didn't hear any extra noise over that. Their pool is at the hotel (indoors so it's very warm and humid in there). There are at least two casinos on the property, so you have to walk in and amongst them to get to the pool. The people were very nice in the convenience store and in the hotel. The laundry worked great and the AC worked so well there that I really needed a sweater! The restrooms were clean but not as clean as they could have been. Overall, we'd stay here again with the expectation that it's a good one night place. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Mostly correcting some information to others posts - The 50-amp sites are all back-in that offer both 30 and 50. When there is not an activity going on in the fairgrounds there is little for kids to do. Instead it is a good stopping point while passing through. It seemed to us that many buildings are marked as no smoking, but this must have been a recent change and the buildings still have a very strong smoke smell including the Super WalMart. Check your power outlet before setting up. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Previous posters pretty well nailed this campground. It is next to the highway, noisy but our electricity was good and steady. We needed Electricity to run our air. It was in the mid 80's and we ran both units pulling 20 amps. Voltage was steady at 113 Volts. Price was OK as we had 30 amp electricity, water and a dump station so it was worth the money. Self registration was OK as we were the only campers here. Next time I will read the reviews before I pull in and maybe spend more money for a quieter site. We camped here in a Motorhome.

While we didn’t spend a full night here, it was enough time to justify a review of this campground. From its description we didn’t expect much, but got less. First was the issue that no one would return our phone calls that we started making to the park the day before we arrived. We finally decided to chance it and arrived in the early afternoon to find the park almost empty: and without any staff! The park butts-up against highway 2 and is part of the county fairground. The pull-through spaces are parallel parking along some short trees that made it impossible to park a big-rig without trimming them: which we did. Each space also had a large (15’-20’ long) mud puddle conveniently located where the coach entry had to be. We could live with all of this, but after all the efforts of preparing the site we plugged into the 30 amp electrical (the highest available) to find our coach’s alarm going off with a brownout condition. The outlet tested as varying from 120 volts down to 8. Amperage, interestingly, moved from 30 to 50 at random. We moved to one of the back-in sites only to find the same condition. We can live with power that goes off and on, but brownouts are a potential killer for current sophisticated electronics. The only other rig in the park was a camper that only noticed their lights dimmed occasionally. After almost three hours of effort, we finally gave up in frustration and moved on down the road. We will not stay here again and cannot recommend it to others. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground is located at the Hill County Fairgrounds in Havre. The campground consists of mostly back-in sites with a half dozen pull throughs, and is a good stopover point when crossing Montana on Route 2. There are a few picnic tables here and there, but otherwise it is a parking spot. The pull through sites have partial shade, but none for the back-in sites. The bathrooms and showers were immaculate. The campground is right next to Route 2, noisy during the day. A Walmart Supercenter is just west of the site. Train buffs will want to go downtown to watch the BNSF yard operations from the bridge overpass. They allowed RV washing at the site, so we made good use of that. We'd stay here again on our way through this part of the state. We camped here in a Motorhome.
