Maybe it was the sharp contrast from some of the wooded, forest sites we'd camped in recently but we fell in love with this waterside site. We arrived mid-week in early August and there was only one other camper in the area. We had our choice of plenty of sites, some with ramadas with picnic tables and fire rings, other spaces in a l... more

“Great place for a night or more.”

I was very impressed with how nicely the campground was maintained, especially considering it was free. Not much else to add from what the other reviewers have already posted. It was a great overnight stop for us and would consider staying several days if our schedule allowed.

I stayed at the Horse Praire campground area. When you turn in, you can left or right. Going left there are 3 sites with Ramadas and an open field that could easily hold 10 rigs. Going right there are about 7 sites with Ramadas. If you have a bigger rig and are going to stay longer than a night, I would try the right spur loop fir... more

Nothing to add to the reviews already posted. Great place to chill out.

We thought Horse Prairie was best for us. Only a few gravel spots with ramada's and no grass parking like at some of the other sites. We thought that would limit the the people who might show up for the weekend.

Just spent one night while traveling from Missoula to Idaho Falls. This is a great stopover but would be a nice quiet place to spend a few days. Large fairly level sites with water, spotless vault toilets with hand sanitizer, fire rings and covered picnic shelters, We stayed in Horse Prairie Campground by ourselves a few miles off the ... more
