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.

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.

River camping

Jam up camp site by the river. Off the main highway and doesn’t look like too many people know about it. A small tow behind camper would fit in here. There is a boat launch too.

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…

Gorgeous

Love love love staying here. Montana is so gorgeous, and the camping here is the best. Mountains surrounded us everywhere we looked. The hiking around this area is spectacular, and I would highly recommend checking out the hiking areas around. The campground was great. It was actually a lot bigger then I thought it would be. There is quite a bit of room between each campsite, which we like. The campsites are typical- picnic table and fire ring. But again, they are pretty big and they are separated by trees and shrubs. Great trees for hammocks. The only downside is that there were tons of bugs. The mosquitos were something else. Not sure if it is because it is close to the water, or standing water, but holy smokes they were bad. Highly recommend bringing lots and lots of bug spray. The weather was pretty hot too! The campsite was pretty busy when we went, but that was because it was during the summer months. Recommend reserving your spot ahead of time. They have some really good biking trails- recommend brining a bike if you love to do that!!

No overnight camping recommended.

Nice place to fish. Not a place to spend the night. Too many bad things happen here at night.

Basecamp for serious hiking

Picture-perfect Montana Rockies beauty. Didn’t use the lake but many were. Wooded small campground with basic primitive sites. Owned by National Forest & kept well. Filled up by mid-afternoon, were lucky to get there early. Exceptional views.

Lewis+Clark Waz Here

This is a really cool Montana treasure in my opinion. Lewis and Clark signed the sandstone here and its the only location of its kind. Not really a hot camping spot, but a really awesome piece of Americana and a worthwhile visit. If you are interested in Lewis and Clark, Montana has dozens of locations to visit: float the Missouri and camp where they camped, make some big life decisions at Decision Point near Loma, explore the museums at Fort Benton or Great Falls, and much more.
