Overall Rating

Except for a weekend, we had a large area to ourselves.

Posted sign says max stay 14. Totally free.

No far (in Montana terms) from Virginia CIty and other shopping too to the west.

Can dump at KOA for a fee. Also get water, probably also for a fee

There are NO formal parking areas, find a spot and stay. There are several roads down toward the reservoir from the highway. Scout out which one you want before you bring an RV down. Some are paved almost to parking.

Wind can be a problem, it is open and Montana.

I had to use a cell phone amplifier to use Verizon.
