“This was a great campground. ”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2017

Overall Rating

We loved Powell Campground. It was not far from the main road, but we did not have any road noise. There were many trees, and we could hear the river from our site. The electric loop did seem to be more crowded, and have more activity going on. I think this must be a popular site for residents of Missoula to camp on the weekends.

Water was not drinkable.
Flush toilets were clean.
Campground hosts do not arrive until mid June.

I was nervous about going over Lolo Pass, but it was fine. We stopped at the top of the pass and enjoyed the small visitor center.

Wifi (very weak signal) available at Lochsa Lodge. We had breakfast there one morning and that was a nice treat. No cell service for 40+ miles.
Gas available at the Lodge.
Small store with a few items also available at the Lodge.

“Most inexpensive electric hookup ever!”

Reviewed Sep 11, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a forest service campground but it has electric hookup in about half the sites, and flush toilets. It is next door to a lodge with a restaurant, fuel and a convenience store, but they cannot be seen from the campground. The roads and sites pads are paved and there were a number of pull throughs. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. It's a lovely place in the woods. The full rate for electric is $20 and non electric is $14. No cell service is the only reason it is not 5 star.
