End of the Road

Literally the end of the road. Near a lake, The sites are surrounded by aspens. There is no water but there is a vault toilet. Even though it is near a small lake it is quiet, There are pull through and back in sites for RVs. Sites are good size. Fire rings and bear storage boxes are available.

Wildlife Active Campground

Mammoth Campground is in the middle of a hairpin turn so be prepared for traffic on both sides of the campsites. I found it noisy for sleeping but my husband slept like a log. The sites are very large and I think all the RV sites were pull through. There are some sites that were more tent appropriate. Also this is a first-come, first-serve campground and it tends to fill up quickly. The campground driveway is paved but the sites are dirt/gravel and I found ours was level with some shade during the day (#58). Unlike a previous review the hosts we had were great. Very personable. The rangers also give presentations at night. One morning we had elk in our site and one evening a huge herd was across the street.

Nice, very Nice

We were heading to Yellowstone from Glacier and had been driving for hours. We called and the park and they gave us the last site open for that day and what a site/view! We were the site closest to the Yellowstone River with views of the mountains and river. The restroom facilities were immaculate. There was some road noise but not too bad. The owners and workers were very pleasant. They also have a communal fire ring. Sites are pull through.

Quiet

Stayed 3 nights on site #8. The site was half shady and half sunny. Large site that we could easily maneuver our 20' camper with room to spare. Notice a nest of young robins getting ready to take their first flight at our site. It is a quiet campground, back from the road with hiking trails around the area.

Nice Family Run Campground

This is a former KOA campground that was purchased by a family. We stayed her in the summer of 2018 during a very hot spell. We didn't have reservations and fit onto a site (#22) with a nice view of the distant mountains. Restrooms were always clean, even very early in the morning. We stayed two times. The second time we again didn't have reservations and they were expecting a large influx of families for a baseball tournament. They put us in the large RV area and we were grateful for accommodation. They have a small mini-golf area, picnic tables at the sites, and full hookups (as expected). They also have laundry facilities.

Nice Spot

Lots of hiking opportunites at the campground, The campground sits across the road from a small "lake" which is good fo kayaking and fishing. There are some sunny sites but mostly shady. We stayed on site #3 for 3 nights. All the sites are spacious. There is a hand pump for water and a vaulted toilet. During the time we were there we had to deal with flies for several hours during the day.

Pretty Spot

This is a free campsite, we stayed on the lake loop, There is water available. Very busy place. One group of people would leave and there would be someone in the site within an hour or two. There is a loop a little before the lake which is wooded. We were there for July 4 weekend and were told to be ready for an amazing display of fireworks and they were right! Lasted about 2 hours - private fireworks but were beautiful. Husband kayaked and larger boats were in the water. For being as busy as it was the nights were quiet.

Spotted No Bear

We like small, out of the way, campgrounds and this is my husband's favorite in Montana. Campsites are large, quiet, and well looked after by the host. The bathroom facilities were cleaned often by the friendly host. This is a quiet campground that is very close to the ranger station. The campsite was a back in and we stayed in site #6. There were several tents also staying at the campground. There was scat in the site that we believe was elk. Saw several types of birds. If you like quiet, this is the place. Some hiking in the area and lots of beautiful scenery near the campground.

Pretty Spot

Stayed in June 2018 with a travel trailer. We were near the boat ramp so was slightly busy during the day but all-in-all not too bad. It is a favorite spot with the teens for swimming. They were friendly, polite, and teenagers. It is also a very popular area for boating. My husband used the kayak in this large reservoir. Beauty view of the mountains. We stayed on site #4 which is an easy back-in site. Host was seen often.

National Park Campground

Stayed in June 2018 at site C111 (not first or even 2nd choice). The site is up on a little hill you drive up to and down from. We had a 20' travel trailer and even though it was RV listed, it wasn't the best. One set of neighbors on one night were a little rude by putting their tent, car, and eventually picnic table where we drove and we squeezed our truck in. It is a pull through. A tent would be better suited. This is a no-generator area. We received the Senior Pass discount. We've stayed here before but across the road. Bathrooms were clean. Nice view from Lake McDonald.
