“Great, but lots of bugs”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2019

Overall Rating

Clean and well maintained campground. Stayed one night in a tent. Vault toilets were very clean, however the water from the taps I would not drink. We arrived around 4pm and there were a ton of flies and mosquitoes so spent the evening in the tent. Our site was right next to a field full of cows which made some noise but nothing to kee... more

“Lovely campground but cows ruined our stay”

Reviewed Jul 14, 2019

Overall Rating

Beautiful sunset, spacious sites, and wildflowers everywhere! Unfortunately, a lot of cows came over and surrounded our site, A LOT OF COWS! They pooped everywhere and mooed ALL night so we didn’t get any sleep. Not sure if this is normal or if they escaped but they did all go back to their field in the morning. No trash on site but g... more

“OK camp, easy access”

Reviewed May 27, 2019

Overall Rating

This used to be a beautiful, shady camp just off of Highway 12 and a great pit stop midway to Glacier National Park for me. Then the Forest Service came through in late 2017 and clear cut all of the trees out of the camp due to pine beetle infestation. They left quite a mess behind with several haphazard piles of trees scattered alon... more

“Surprisingly good coverage close to Helena”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2018

Overall Rating

My Montana experience has been marked by spotty coverage as much as it has by beautiful scenery. I was pleased-as-pie that this campground has excellent coverage (well, for Montana) and a great location in the pass close to Helena. The road is paved all the way in, but has lots of cracks. Look for Macdonald Pass Recreation Area (no ... more

“Campground is currently closed”

Reviewed Jul 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Campground is currently closed (7/2/17). I just spoke with the Forest Service. It is due to the Pine Beetle and it will be closed for the rest of the season, but not permanently.

“Right on the Continental Divide”

Reviewed Sep 04, 2015

Overall Rating

This campground is at MacDonald Pass on the Continental Divide and has access to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. We did a short hike on the trail and it was really lovely and worth exploring. Note, the trail is not directly accessible from the campground, but starts on the other side of the hill (there are signs directing... more
