Remote, quiet but for cows.

I've been here twice over the last couple decades. Both times this camp was deserted with little to no traffic. Only facility is an outside down the road. I've of my favorites!

Very Nice Campsite

Visited here in June of 2019. Very clean and well taken care of campsite close to the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Park. Custer actually rested his troops at this site just prior to starting the battle. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathroom and showers well very clean with endless hot water. They have a neat little tradition of writing your name and date on flat little stones and leaving them up at the flag pole. They have a small play ground. Kids had a great time. Highly recommend this site.

Ok for an overnight, wouldn't stay long term

We stayed here as an overnight stop during our summer trip.

There is not much in Hardin at all, but the campground provide plenty of space with the sites. We had 50amp for our trailer and water and sewer hookups.

I don't think the staff at the front desk were very enthusiastic about their jobs…they seemed like they weren't too happy to have to deal with another camper showing up for the night.

There were quite a few other rigs there when we stayed, but no one that looked like they were staying for long term.

Great!

It’s a really convenient little spot to stop and sleep in the pines along a trip but expect noise from the highway.

First to Review
Battle of Little Big Horn

It’s the most reasonable place to camp if you’re stopping for the night to see the national monument.

Friendly, open.

We enjoyed this park however, our site was not level and the water had an unpleasent taste.  It is off of the beaten path and you will need to travel a short distance on a gravel road that had some potholes.

Hammock

Stayed here overnight in both July and November. Sites are on a first come first serve basis but I was able to find a site both times. Plenty of trees for hammocks and a good pad for tents. Huge picnic table at each site.

Fine

Not a bad campground. Host very nice. Bathrooms were set up a little weird but were clean

close but so far away

It’s cramped. Very close spaces with no room to do much else. The spaces are staggered enough you’re not side by side, but still very cramped.

Showers and restrooms are not the finest, 2 out of 4 toilets somewhat work and showers needed to be cleaned.

It is costly to stay here. There is internet (slow, so don’t expect to download a movie) and cable, water and electric are standard.

Parking is difficult. you have to park out away from your camper and walk back through the campground. The cramped conditions keep people from backing into the tight spaces; therefore, making you park away from your campsite.

There is a game room, but beware you have to pay for every game.

You are close to Yellowstone NP and that is about the only nice thing about staying here.

In summery, if you need just a place to hookup and sleep and don’t mind being close to other campers this place will work. If you like some privacy and want to actually camp with the family this is not very suitable, no place to set up the hammock, no camp fires, and no extra room for your favorite camp chair!

Just the observation of a family guy with wife and kids who love to camp and love our National Parks…

Easy National Forest camping near Ashland, Montana

Free National Forest campground in Custer National Forest. Sites include large picnic table and fire ring. Pit toilets available for use. The campground is right off of 212 about 6 miles east of the town of Ashland. We were just passing through for the night and this offered a quick, convenient place to crash. There is a fair amount of road noise due to the close proximity of the road. Campground is popular on the weekends but we had no problem finding a site.
