Overall Rating

Nice wooded sites. We stayed August of 2017.

Water was weird! Several water.locations w/spring-loaded paddle handles & NO threaded hose connections! I got soaked trying to keep a hand-held connection using my rubber "Water Bandit" adapter. Very high pressure! (Hense 4-star review!) We'll need to use jugs or containers & a small drill-pump for next stay.

Close to the lake - just a short walk. Two loops, we stayed in the Southern-most. Map of campsite by USFS does not show the slips. All paved back-in sites. The only two "reservable" sites are group sites.
Be wary of the concrete posts along sides of slips! Bent the motorhome exhaust tips & scratched some cargo doors on my 33' Class-A while backing in.

Mostly shaded. Sun impacted in RV from about 1000 till 1430. Used our generator to run AC for about 3 hours per day.

Seeley Lake was just south & busy due to fire-fighting activity. The entire area was evacuated about a week after we left due to Forest fires. Smoke was not as bad at the campground as it was in Seeley.
