Nestled next to an old ghost town with a creek flowing around it. No att coverage, super quiet. No hook ups. Vault toilets, community water faucet. Plenty of room for our 30’ trailer and truck. Just empty your tanks and fill up on water, food and supplies in Dillon. Heavily shaded. Bring a generator to charge you bank, though I felt bad about running them because of the disruption in the serenity.
From BLM website; Centered around a single, sentinel Ponderosa Pine tree, this small campground features six campsites and a group use area. Across the Crooked River, the photogenic Rocky Canyon and it’s vertical rimrock cliffs offer photographers a variety of ever-changing light and depth perspectives.
The three nights I spent here in late July changed my life. The solitude and gurgling of Crooked River stayed constant as the hot sun slowly turned into the Milky Way. Bring water for drinking and plenty of bug spray
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).
This was a great camping experience. The campgrounds are at the base of a Beautiful lake. There are lots of fish to be caught. Fish and Game stock it twice a year. There are four wheeler trails outside the campground and there is a hike loop right in the campground.
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.
Nice campground! We stayed in Space #1 which is the most private! Picnic tables and fire pits are provided. They have pit toilets and our space was nicely shaded. Our 5th wheel is 28 feet long. The road is paved as are the sites! Interesting history on the campground name.
I enjoyed staying here, the hot springs/campground nearby were closed (and for sale) so this was a pleasant suprise and respite. The spaces are far enough apart that you feel like you have privacy. The history here is the Indians would strip the bark from the ponderosa pines to get to the edible layers, and several trees in the campground still have scars on their trunks from this practice. A bonus staying here that you have free access to nearby Camp Sulas laundry facilities, showers and wifi. Be warned that the park service comes through at 9am in the morning to power wash the driveways and toilet facility, it would be more courteous to sleeping campers if they waited until after checkout time.
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.

May creek is a wonderful campground… it’s in a gorgeous cabin and it’s easy to find. The campsites have fire pits and picnic tables. It’s not that far from the highway which is nice if your looking to explore the area. It’s peaceful and quiet, and not busy.
