“Great Camping for a Great Price”

Reviewed Sep 07, 2018

Overall Rating

The reviews I used to choose this campground were spot-on. Big sites, all paved, with plenty of privacy. There really isn’t a bad site in this entire campground. There are also hiking and biking trails at the trailhead located at the entrance to the campground. The camp host is great and he’s been here for 5 seasons. The vault toi... more

“Perfect national forest camping, and a steal at $10/night”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2018

Overall Rating

This small campground in the Bitterroot National Forest is situated along a burbling creek, and features huge sites with great privacy, along with excellent hiking right from the campground. The campground is easy to reach from US93 on a paved road, and there are plenty of places to get supplies (gas, food, propane) within a 10-15 minu... more

“Beautiful campground....off the beaten trail.”

Reviewed Jul 04, 2018

Overall Rating

We found out why the locals love this place so much. It’s quiet, only a few miles west of the main highway and perfectly located along a pretty mountain stream. We only wish that we could have stayed more than one night.

“Nice campground not far from Missoula.”

Reviewed May 05, 2017

Overall Rating

I was surprised we could get a spot late on a Friday afternoon. Only about a fourth of the sites were taken and we got a nice pull through. We didn't get any Dish satellite service here because of the beautiful towering pines and hills here, but we have been using my Verizon Jetpack with only minor interruptions in streaming. We were e... more

Only 13 miles from our home, we have camped here many times. Several sites (including pull-thrus) will accommodate our 36 ft. fifth wheel. Great hiking trails, rocky, cascading creek, very quiet nights. Mostly wooded, a few open sites. Nice, fairly level sites.Great hosts.

“Next to creek, great easy hiking and paved road.”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2015

Overall Rating

Very nice campground next to beautiful creek and real close to the trail head to Bass lake. Easy hike for the first 4 miles then gets a little more challenging. The trail stays near the creek with cascades and lots of nice spots to stop and enjoy life. The campground has about 5 pull through spots big enough for big rigs. Cell servi... more
