Great area for camping but bring water.

I camped in the dispersed camping area across the highway from the actual campground because the campground was full. It was nice except for a lot of big rocks and thistles. Water is in short supply so if at all possible bring your own. The campground will let you get water but only smaller amounts and it costs 10 cents a gallon.

Not the best but not the worst either

This is a nice camping area although the sites are fairly close to each other. There are bugs because of the nearby pond. I enjoyed watching the bunnies play around in the grassy areas in the early morning. It is nice and quiet here. The bathrooms and showers are clean and in good shape. They even have movie dvd rentals in the store since tv reception is non-existant if you try to use just an antenna for local channels. The only bad part was that I had to move my trailer to dump the black tank because my site didn't have sewer connections.

Great views and good camping

Stayed here overnight when traveling through California headed to Nevada. The site has some beautiful views of the mountains. It was cloudy and getting dark when we got there so didn't see the views until in the morning when we woke up to snow capped peaks. Nice clean camping area and sites are not right on top of each other.

Camping in the winter in the desert, nice

I camped in La Posa South area which is one of several areas for long term camping on BLM land near Quartzsite, AZ. You can buy a permit to camp in any of the areas for the season which I believe starts in November and ends in April. They also offer permits for two week intervals if you are not planning on camping all season. It is dry camping although there is a dump station and water available along with a row of dumpsters in each area for trash. This place fills up in the winter but there are still plenty of areas to find a good camping spot. If you do camp farther out watch out for traffic from ATV's and four wheelers who don't seem to believe the speed limits apply to them.

Nice quiet camping area

This is a nice area especially if you want to be totally isolated because there is no cell phone service here. It is close enough to Helena that you are not too far from civilization should you want to pick up supplies or make a phone call. The road is a bit rough and the vehicles do not slow down so be careful pulling out onto the main road from the campground area. They were grading the road when I was there so it was a bit of a muddy mess but otherwise it was great. Not a lot of people camp here probably because of the lack of cell service so it is a nice quiet place. The bugs can get bad because the creek runs right along side of the road.

Beautiful camping in the pines

This is a beautiful area in the town of Lincoln, Mt. The deer walk through the campsites and the area is surrounded by pine trees. It was a little tricky backing my travel trailer into the site but the site was level and not the worst I've ever backed into. It was nice and quiet. I would camp here again.

Nice spots near Canyon Ferry Lake

I camped there in spring and there were very few hardy souls camping then. It was a little windy and cold but it was beautiful and not crowded at all. There are no hook ups so it is dry camping but the site was pretty level and it was easy to park my trailer in a spot.

Great area for dry camping

I stayed here for 10 days and it was nice. Quiet for the most part except on the weekend when the rafters and partiers are driving in and out of there. This is dry camping so no hookups but also no fee (they ask for donations). I wish the maximum allowed time was longer but I understand about them limiting the time so they don't get people setting up house there. I camped in the front area and didn't get as many bugs as I noticed in the back area but also got more traffic driving by on the weekend. They drive through pretty fast so be aware of vehicles on the roads.

Great place to camp close to Helena

This is a great place to set up camp not very far away from Helena. I had a nice view of the water and saw deer, eagles, and other water birds. It was well maintained, clean, and quiet. I liked the paths around the area for walking and the fact that they had provided doggy poop bags in several "stations" along the path.

Hidden gem of a campground

Camped here in my 19' Jayco Jayflight travel trailer. The spots are right along the creek with lots of mature trees as well as a toilet. It was fairly level and easy to get into a spot. This is more like boondocking than camping as the spots are not improved and the road in is dirt. It is beautiful. It's close to Davis Creek where people rockhound for Obsidian which is why I was there in the first place. I enjoyed camping here and would do so again.

Great place to camp

I have a 19ft Jayflight trailer. The spots are level and I had no trouble backing into one. They are spaced well and you are not camped right on top of your neighbor. The price is reasonable and the hook ups are nice to have. The staff in the office was helpful and nice. I would stay here again if I was in this area.
