This municipal park is directly across from where Rt. 191 intersects Rt. 2, behind the rest area. Drive through the rest area to find the park behind. Don't be confused by the RV park which is part of a small motel on the left as you enter the park. There are drive-through sites to the left side, but you can also park in any of the grassy areas. There are several water spigots in the park and the water tastes good. This was a great and super cheap overnight stop at only $3. We would definitely stay here again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a campground. It is a city park that allows camping in any empty area you choose to use. There is no attendant. No hookups, but water faucets are located throughout the park. The local kids use the park as a playground and why not? It's a park. The night we were there, one of the local hoodlums was riding around the park on his motorcycle at 3:30 AM but took off when the sheriff's deputy arrived for one of his periodic security tours through the park. A sewage lift station in the park was undergoing repairs and the crew arrived at 7:00 AM and cranked up their contractor generator. The Milk River makes a horseshoe bend around the campground. We walked up on the levee to get a view and saw where about a dozen rusted automobiles had been pushed over the levee on the far side. Some guy was doing wheelies on his ATV down Main Street. Hey, this is the Wild West, right? To put this all in perspective, this camping experience was slightly better than Wal-Mart's parking lot and the price was only $3.00 more. If you decide to stay here, have a nice steak dinner at the Great Northern Restaurant. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a city park. It was adequate for a place to get off the highway for the night and get some sleep. And the price was right. Sites are not marked, so you have to look around for a place that suits you. There are about 4 places that a big rig would fit. Ours was the only RV there. There were several tenters. It was quiet when we were there, but there are playgrounds and ball fields, so it could get busy and noisy sometimes, but would probably be quiet at bedtime. Trafton Park is on US-2. Look for the rest area sign in Malta. Follow road to rest area. Trafton Park is behind the rest area. Stay to the right to avoid low hanging tree limbs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
