Small FAS campground on Big Hole River

Maiden Rock Fishing Access Site is a small fishing access site which allows camping. This Fishing access site has two picnic tables, one of which has a large rock fire ring next to it. The other picnic table has had fires next to it but does not really have a fire ring, one could be made however as enough rocks seem to be available. Their is also a BBQ grill in the area but no table near it. A few old buildings are at the site and are fenced off for safety. The site has on vault toilet, no other services area available. This is a fee site. Access to the river is through a break in the fence along the shore of the Big Hole river. This is not the greatest camping area, and private residents are near the site.

Trail head, not a camping area

This location is not a campground, it is the trail head for Humbug Spires and wonderful 6 mile one way hiking trail.  The trail head is small with not much room for vehicles.  While their is a vault toilet at the location, this area is not a campground.  Trail is well worth hiking

Small quiet overlooked campground near Ghost Town and Crystal Park

Mono Creek Campground is just a short drive off of the Pioneer Mountain Scenic Byway. This five site campground had only two of its five sites occupied on our visit, will others along the byway were full. We liked that two of the five campsites were for tents only. All sites sit among Lodgepole pines and have picnic tables and metal fire rings. One vault toilet serves the campground. A water pump is available at the entrance to the campground. Happy creek runs along the campground. If you like to hike, a large trail head is next to the campground and trails lead to mountain lakes. If you like ghost towns just continue down the road past the campground to its end to take a mile hike to Coolidge Ghost Town. Like to dig for crystal that can get as big as your thumb, then take the drive down the Pioneer Mountain Scenic Byway to Crystal park, kids love looking for the crystals.

Nice quite campground in the Tobacco Root Mountains

Mill Creek is a nice 10 site campground along Mill Creek in the Tobacco Root Mountains. The campground is 7 miles from the town of Sheridan. Note that the sign in Sheridan says the campground is 6 miles away, however it is 6 miles to the forest boundary, then another mile to the campground. The campground features 2 double vault toilets and two hand pump wells for water. This is a well shaded campground due to the large fir and pine trees. In the mile between the forest boundary and the campground about 6 marked primitive campsites can be found as well. Between the 2nd and 3rd campsites is a short trail leading to a large group fire ring with four benches circling it. All the campsites have a picnic table and fire rings. Each site has a large parking area that can easily fit two vehicles. This is grizzle bear territory, food must be stored in your car or the provided bear proof foot locker at the campground.

Perfect halfway from Seattle to Yellowstone NP

We made a reservation here by calling them a couple weeks before we left for Yellowstone National Park.  We were driving from the Seattle, WA area and figured this was about half way.  There are several mountain passes to cross and we did not want to fill our water and propane tanks before leaving and carry a bunch of extra weight.  This place offered full hook ups and propane sales on site. 

We arrived almost too late for in person check in.  Since we were hoping to leave early the next morning, we didn't want to wait for the office to open again in the morning.  We called ahead and the really nice lady in the office stayed a few minutes to wait for us.  They have a nice office with some local items for sale that make cute little gifts.  

Sites are typical for an RV campground.  Everyone is very close together.  Picnic tables and full hook ups are available.  There are also tent sites.  The bathrooms are great.  many stalls and several private showers.  The grounds are beautiful.  Green and watered.  Covered picnic shelters are available.  

Campers were quiet for a Saturday night.  Lots of folks out and about, everyone was so friendly!  The only downside is it's right next to the freeway.  Even in the middle of the night, it was loud.

Clean park well laid out

If you like waterslides or golfing this will be hard to beat. Nice and clean areas with a great little store. I want to judge a park by the cost of ice “2.00” seems fair. $29.00 to tent camp. Power, picnic table, 4g phone service with Verizon, they offer wi-fi, bbq in every site. Each site has a raised level gravel spot for setting up camp with grass all around. I appreciate that they planted trees that block out the hot sun during the entire day (Sept 1st). Showers and bathroom are 100ft away. The shower and toilets are immaculate and secure with secure code door locks. At check-in, I was offered a day pass to the golf course and water park at no cost for the day. It was A nice bonus and justified the extra cost for the tent site. The water park has a nice restaurant and bar inside as well as a poolside bar with mixed drinks. I had dinner at Donivan's about 10 miles away in Anaconda. Great place to eat very nice. Had a great steak potato and beer for $27 it was delicious. This is my second trip out here this summer from Washington state to Fairmont. I genuinely enjoy spending time here. I'm just a big kid traveling by myself, but it's really an excellent place for the little ones and a place for mom and dad to get some time together. I see a lot of retired people here living it up golfing and swimming. Being right off, I90 makes it a huge bonus. I can see the cars on the highway just barely and no noise. Must be 3ish miles from 90. Happy ⛺!

Great Place

This is an extremely well kept BLM Campground that is adjacent to a very large fly fishing River. It has pit toilets fire rings and tables. Access is very easy on a short dirt road off the main highway. There's a camp host on site. They have pit toilets RV sites and tent sites. It's only 15 or 20 minutes south west of Butte Montana
