“Excellent overnight stop along Hwy2 and the price is right!”

Overall Rating

This city park allows overnight camping for just $3. There are a couple of long, gravel pull- throughs that could accommodate any size rig or you can park on the grass. There are water spigots (threaded, so you don’t need a water thief) but no electric or dump station.

Most of the sites are partially shaded, under large cottonwood trees. There are restrooms, BBQ grills, large picnic shelters, and tables. The park gets fairly steady local traffic using the basketball and volleyball courts, soft ball fields, playground equipment and horseshoe pits, but it was never crowded and the park cleared out shortly after dusk.

We enjoyed the short trail along Milk River which surrounds the park on two sides. Look along the bank and you’ll see old cars used to help shore up the levy. Very cool. There are also museums, store, food service, and fuel available within 1 mile, many within walking distance.

Note: To access the park follow the signs to the “rest stop”. You’ll pass a private RV park on the left just as you enter. As you come into the park there are gravel roads to the left, center and right (between the stone columns). Keep to the far left or right, especially if you’re in a big rig – there was a fairly low hanging cable across the center access road. The gravel roads were also deep deeply rutted in places, so take it slow. We had 5 bars of Verizon LTE without boosting. Yeah!
