Nice spot- secluded

Nice spot. Had the place mostly to ourselves. One RV showed up later, ran a generator for an hour but was quiet after that. Lovely view. It was REALLY windy when we arrived- parked our car as a wind break and put our tent next to it. I suspect the bug this is real, though the wind kept us from dealing with them…. it was also really cold (28 degrees when I woke at 5 am) which prob kept them down. Easy spot to stay for a night on our way to glacier.

Looked closed and maybe for sale?

Drove past going to Nelson Reservoir.

Not a destination but a good stopping point

This place isn’t fancy but it’s only $5 to camp for the night. As we sit here there are only two other campers here so there’s plenty of room to spread out. We did find power over in one of the pavilions if you just have to have it for awhile but it’s not available at individual campsites. There are public toilets. There are also many water spigots around the park but not at individual sites. Although to clarify you can pretty much park where you can fit your vehicle so I guess you could use power and water depending on where you park but we didn’t want to try our luck. There is all sorts of playground equipment here that kids would enjoy and lots of horses next door at the rodeo grounds. There is a definite sewage smell here and that’s disappointing but seriously for $5 bucks we are happy to be here for the night. Last but not least there are lots of prairie dog holes in the ground here so don’t turn your ankle.

Fantastic for Accessing the Lake and Checking out Fossils!

This was my 2nd favorite spot that we visited other than the place we stayed at for the wedding.  First reason it was so great was because of the seclusion due to it being on the south side of Lake Ft. Peck and away from any city.  Be warned though you are pretty much on your own out here so be sure you have a full tank of gas before exploring.  The 2nd and arguable more important reason I loved this spot so much was due to it being surrounded by the Hell Creek Geologic Formation which has some of the highest concentration of vertebrate fossils in the world!  While it is illegal to take any vertebrate fossils you can get cool imprints of leaves and other invertebrate animals that lived right alongside the dinosaurs!

Nice sites Great staff

Very nice place, sites are good, stuff is friendly POOL IS AWESOME

Big Sky Country at its Best!

This is one of the best places to take in that Big Sky that Montana is famous for!  The combination of the rolling hills that seem to go on forever and the reservoir make this a great spot to camp!  There are tons of opportunities to recreate in so many different ways!  At most of the grassy camping peninsulas you can launch your boat or SUP right into the water!  There are places where you can get some solitude and other places that are fit for a reunion or weekend party/getaway!

Now getting to the actual campsites.  Most of them are relatively primitive with only a few fire rings and picnic tables scattered about.  The grassy peninsulas are also not really split into individual campsites and it feels more like a camping field.  This means that if its busy your neighbors will likely be right on top of you if you can't get one of the isolated spots.  There are vault toilets near most of the spots along with running water at the day-use areas.  Another great thing about these spots is the presence of a great fish cleaning station!  To get cheap gas and food head into the nearby town of Glasgow which will be at least $1 cheaper per gallon than the marina pumps

Great all around access for boating and swimming

Duck Creek has nice camping spots, with no hook ups, but does have picnic tables and fire pits.  Close access to nice boat ramp as well as easy access areas to the water for swimming, and fishing.  Adequate vault toilets in area as well.

Paid camping in area as well, which offer hook ups and showers.

Nice place in middle of no where

Was a nice place to stay with indoor pool and the hot tub is a hot spring
