“Hidden Gem!”

Reviewed Sep 28, 2018

Overall Rating

We visited this state park at the recommendation of a Montana friend. What a gem! We visited this place September 23 and wished we would've allowed enough time in our travel schedule to stay an additional night or more.

In driving in, you can see the two campgrounds below the road to the right. One is easily seen, Vigilante, the other, Road Agent, is further back and not as easily seen. We drove to the visitor center with our FW in tow, but there is plenty of room in the parking lot to park a big RV and get out of there. At the recommendation of the park ranger, we drove to the Vigilante CG which she said is better for our bigger rig. The Road Agent CG is smaller, but had we driven in there by accident, and empty as it was this time of year, we could've parked in site 8 easily and gotten out of there too.

Vigilante CG has one pull through among the back in sites. We stayed in the host site, since it was past season, and this site backed up to Grasshopper Creek. The night we stayed, only one other RV was there. Even with the quiet hours rule, they ran their generator off and on all night, but that happens in other CGs as well. It got down to 32, but we have a catalytic heater that keeps us warm.

This CG offered a teepee too with a wooden floor. With cots, camp table, and heater, you'd be nice and warm.

As isolated as this place is, the state provided a nice pit toilet and garbage cans. We would definitely stay here again, especially this time of year.

“Great for tent or RV”

Reviewed Jan 18, 2016

Overall Rating

We tent camped but the weekend we stayed there were volunteer's with over 10 RV's of various sizes in the camps cleaning up the park for summer (we stayed in May). Cold night but great place. Dillon is within an hour drive to get supplies.
