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
Great park and campground popular with locals for a quick getaway, and ideal for travelers between Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. Yes, it is on a bench above a river valley and below higher sage and juniper covered foothills. It can be windy, and it can be hot and sunny in the summer. Locals find it a great early and late season destination for these reasons. The trails also dry out/stay dry early and late making it a hiking and mountain biking destination when the higher mountains are snowy or muddy.
The campground itself has great facilities, and manicured lawns (good since this is rattlesnake country), but little to no natural shade. Clean restrooms and clean vault toilets. Small visitor center at the highway entrance and second visitor center for the cave entrance at the top of the mountain (foothill). Summer brings intermittent ranger programs. I reserved a star for wind and lack of shade, otherwise it’s great camping.
P.S. spotty cell coverage!
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).
Beautiful place with sites right on the river! The sites are spread out and most are private. There are no bear lockers or dumpsters. Vault toilet was well maintained. I see the notes here say there’s a dump station but we couldn’t find one, so I’m not sure this info is correct.
We just stayed there in our travel trailer and the campground is beautiful! A few things I want to highlight for others considering it: 1. It wasn’t busy at all and we had our pick of electric sites. Of course it’s late September so I have no idea how busy it is earlier in the season.
- This is a beautiful open area with just a few trees. It actually makes for a gorgeous campground especially with fall colors popping up, but anyone going during hot weather should keep in mind there isn’t much shade.
- Sites are gravel, mostly level, and spacious (but not very private since there aren’t many trees dividing the sites). Bathrooms are nearby and clean. There’s a nice play structure for kids.
- It was windy!!! I have no idea if it was just the weather during our stay or if this is a particularly windy spot so please take this with a grain of salt. In all fairness it was windy all around the area (we went to nearby Madison Buffalo Jump park and Missouri Headwaters State Park and it was windy there too), but it did seem that the gusts were a bit stronger in the campground. We ended up leaving a night early because we didn’t want another night of cooking and eating inside the trailer and it was too windy to sit outside.
- The cavern tour is definitely worth it!
We stayed here the night before our cavern tour. Camping included the out of state vehicle charge which was nice. It’s 28 for out of state cars, 14 for in state. There are also senior discounts. There were some specific regulations as far as what site you could pick and how many tents etc that you could put up. We don’t know how strict they are with it, but make sure your read the signs at the fee area. Sites are spread out but not private, our neighbors were seated looking straight at us, but we couldn’t blame them since there weren’t many good ways to sit without looking at someone. Good for RVs, maybe less so for tents and vans in our opinion. Bathrooms were clean though and everything seemed nicely maintained. Caverns were very cool, but were in limited groups and the tour was shortened because of covid. Still cool though, would have liked to stay when a full tour could have been done.
Very clean and quiet. Great access to the river. Great river access 1/4 mile up the road also. They sell firewood and ice are the ranger station.
