“Construction Zone”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2017

Overall Rating

The field when we arrived has become a dirt pit for what we assume is the forestry service, but not sure... at 3am and throughout the night we were initiated with dump trucks and dozers working. We were parked near the entrance and I picked up a large hand full of rust 4" nails that we laying on the ground. Needless to say we left the ... more

“Okay base to explore from, lousy for a camp.”

Reviewed Aug 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Searched the area high and low and found few dispersed options for RVs, so settled on this old work site. Decent to explore from and that's it. No shade, no hiking access, no surrounding forest, no scenery. But it was free, fairly level, and quiet at night despite being only a few hundred feet from the paved road. It was full on Aug 1 ... more

Reviewed Sep 23, 2016

Overall Rating

We tried for the McGinnis Creek Rd. site but it was occupied, and the Blakenship Bridge site, while awesome, was not accessible with our 30' Airstream in tow. So we landed here... access is very easy compared to the others and th... more

“Convenient Field near West Side of Glacier NP”

Reviewed Aug 30, 2016

Overall Rating

This boondocking spot isn't going to win any beauty contests, but it sure does the trick if you're trying to see Glacier NP. It is a big open field just off of the N Fork Rd. It can accommodate 4 campsites with amply privacy, or probably 50 if you pack them in like a KOA. It is very easy to find and was actually surprisingly quiet d... more
