Overall Rating

We stayed one night in July. Price is now $5.00. No assigned spots seems like you just park wherever. Quite night but... BRING MOSQUITOE SPRAY in summer! Absolutely the worst mosquitoes I’ve ever seen. There’s a river behind the park must contribute to the amount. There was a softball game and small farmers market going on.
Bathrooms were near ball park and were average.

Notes:
• The Hitching Post Cafe had great breakfast! Omelette with fresh mushrooms!

• Don’t Miss the Bowdoin National Wildlife Refuge. I’ve never seen so many birds. Islands full of white pelicans. It’s a migratory bird refuge. There’s a drive around the park and is worth it even if you can’t leave the car because of mosquitoes.

• The small dinosaur museum in town was a neat stop. They have discovered a new dinosaur and there’s a lot of fossils from the area. It’s $5.00

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!
