Only RV location with hookups around the lake. Make sure to call in advance after October as they close for the season.
Decent space between gravel sites but no real shade for hotter days. Boat ramp access as part of their park. Verizon had spotty signal (less than 1 bar).
camping all around this huge reservoir as well as great fishing. there are six campgrounds here. camping is first come, first served and free at all except for lewis and clark campground which has full rv hook-ups. the price there is $30 per night and half price with senior pass.
Wonderful location with very little wifi services. If you want to relax in a very nice, park setting, surrounded by mountains, this would be your place.
Big spaces in the middle area. Smaller spots on the river. Modest but competent shower and laundry room.
Would stay again.
We spent better than two weeks at Alta while fishing the surrounding creeks, running our side by side up and down the mountain roads and soaking in the mineral pool of Horse Creek Hot Springs. The campground is an excellent place to relax in the out of doors. A long with having sizable campsites and clean accommodations it's well kept, quiet and frankly a beautiful spot in the Bitterroots. We're looking forward to another stay next year. Thanks Forest Service, you've done well with this one.
If you want complete solitude from the internet and TV this is the place for you to reconnect with nature. (see video)
Being new RV'ers we didn't do our due diligence before booking, we went by pictures and the park did their part. They said poor internet and poor cell service we just didn't believe them. There was internet at the office but it was 56k speed.
Having to run our company from the road, traveling with three kids under 5, 3 dogs and a cat, all over 5 we need to be able to work.
Here's what we loved:
- Beautiful and clean
- Quiet and close to the river
- Incredible dog area
- Level parking
- Staff was incredible
We weren't fond of:
- No cell service (AT&T & Sprint)
- Poor WiFi
We gave this a 4-star review because it's exactly what it said it was and the staff was very kind.
If you are a digital nomad and stay here then go to Salmon (30-minute drive), turn left, and a few blocks down on your left is the public library. It's the best wife you'll find and you can access it from the street.

Stopped at this place after leaving Yellowstone and beginning to head south. It is nice reservoir! Swimming, boating, kayaking, etc! You can pretty much choose your favorite spot around the whole reservoir and just park and set up camp. Weather was nice mid August and no mosquitos which was a big plus for me! This place was a perfect midway stop!
This is the spot to camp if you plan on spending most of your time here out on the water! It seems like the entire west side of the campground where it meets the water could be used as a boat ramp and offers nice easy access to the reservoir for any age! It is also the campground that is closest to the interstate (read busiest) We were there on a Tuesday and almost half of the campground was full. I can't even imagine what its like on a weekend let alone a holiday.
The campsites themselves are pretty basic. A fire ring and picnic table are at each of the sites with vault toilets within walking distance. There are pretty much no shade trees so plan on bringing an umbrella or something similar to keep yourself cool. If you cross over the dam to the west side of the reservoir you'll also see a sign that is exactly half way between the north pole and the equator!
A beautiful combination of the mountains and Big Sky of Montana! This reservoir is quite large and even has a cool little island in the middle of it that you can cliff dive from when the waters are high enough! There are boat docks, day-use areas, and campgrounds spread all around the reservoir. The campground we featured in this review was an RV only site (because why would you tent camp there) that was right next to the Lewis & Clark Day-use area that has a giant canoe and flag pole. It is an extended stay RV site with the option for paying for weeks if you plan on spending a good chunk of your summer here.
Right along the road on the dam there is a sign showing you that you're halfway between the equator and the north pole! Also nearby is the cute, cozy town of Dillon, where you can venture into the 1st Patagonia and Great Harvest stores in the world! If you're here around Labor Day they also have a great rodeo and parade and the Patagonia Store has HUGE discounts!
