"Build it and they will come." The RV'rs arrive and the most commonly heard remark is: "What they heck were they thinking?" The sites are far from being level. The sites are very close (too close) and extremely tight with high cement curbs that look nice and make no functional sense. CAUTION as tripping/falling hazards are found at nearly every site. Half of the sites have water/sewer hookup on one side while the electric hookup is on the other side rendering the previously referenced campground map obsolete. It makes no sense. It is a beautiful little campground ideally located between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park. No bathrooms, no showers but the latrine (pit toilet) is clean and well kept. No management, no information and when calling to make a reservation, expect to leave several unanswered/unreturned phone messages. The grounds are maintained by a volunteer and the pride of ownership shows as he and his efforts has made an appreciated difference. A great campground for a short/overnight stay for those who are strong and steady on their feet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been RV'ing a long time as I am a mid 80's retired Navy Veteran, disabled and this campground is quiet, secluded, beautiful and could be (should be) rated up there with the very best Except the bad and the ugly far out way the good. At arrival and check-in, one immediately recognizes that no one knows a thing about RV'ing. Aside from an unreadable map, the guest receives absolutely no information, not even a receipt. The campground makes up rules as they go and then does not abide by their own rules. A disabled vet was just turned away because a contractor, with two campers (in one slot) and a full utility trailer measuring about 30 feet long somehow took precedence. The park itself has an asphalt drive leading in and around the park. Half of the park (in the rear) is designated tent and dry camp made up of rocky gravel and mowed weeds separated by a drainage area and no showers. The other half is two gravel rows (roads) with unleveled, gravel sites. The first row is 50 amp, the second row is 20/30 amp. If you require 50 amp, good luck because the 50 amp slots are assigned to trailers requiring just 30 amps. The 50 amp sites are smaller than the 30 amp sites and the "islands" between the sites leave 4 or maybe 5 feet between you and your neighbors slide. The great big,boat anchor of a picnic table between you and your neighbor is useless because the slides hang over the picnic table bench. Between each site is an "island" containing two trees, red rock gravel, a small cement pad and a huge cement picnic table. The island is bordered by a short cement retaining wall which presents serious safety concerns for us seniors and those with balance/mobility issues as it poses a real threat when entering and exiting the RV. My 91 year old wife did take a hard fall and became stuck between the RV and that monstrous retaining wall. The "slots" between the islands are small leaving little room for basement hatches to safely clear retaining walls. The retaining walls are so high and the sites are so out of level that the handling of black water becomes an uphill battle. The sites are no where close to level . Some rigs have jacked up and set down on cement patio blocks. My electric hookup was on the wrong side as is the case of many of the sites. So, we have water and sewer on one side and a shared electric panel with cords on the other and unuseable picnic table. As I checked out, I was charged $800 for "winter rate". We arrived in August? We stayed five weeks and I'm still waiting for my promised refund. Ft. Harrison, a secluded, quiet and beautiful location. It is unmanaged and recommended only for a short, overnight stay.
