"Beautiful Forested Area"

Older campground whose name changed this year. I stayed here back in 2014 and it's still a nice place to stay back in the Lolo valley. I was early in their season and they have it all cleaned up after the winter snows. Landscape is looking good.... Read more

"A nice campground, very secluded"

There is water available throughout the camp, but if you want to fill your RV tanks, do so at the Dump on your way into the campground. Make sure you are prepared for a wilderness stay, as supplies and fuel is an hour away (one way). There is a... Read more

"Peaceful Layover"

This is a perfect spot to plant yourself after a 200-mile drive up the 395 from Carson City if you are traveling that way. They have 4 or 5 pull-throughs that are easy in and out for an overnight stay. As mentioned before there are a number of... Read more

"Tight Campsites at a Premium"

While I've read the rates at this campground are $67-$70 per night, I only paid $20 nightly due to my Thousand Trails Collection membership. Frankly even that was overpriced for my needs. Due to COVID I checked in online and never spoke to anyone... Read more

"Rural Camping on Paicines Ranch"

This campground advertises 596 campsites, I would guess if it was fully opened and repairs were done it would be much more. Typical of Thousand Trails Campgrounds are older and bought in a state of disrepair. It would take millions to fully bring... Read more

"Hot Summer and Fall"

I would agree with several others posting for this campground. It's one of my favorite TT campgrounds. The river access is nice and this time of year the water is low but still enough to play in and may even be better for younger children.... Read more

"Large Thousand Trails Campground"

I hate to be negative, but while this Park has great potential, this review is very much like those written years ago. Same problems have been identified but no improvement that I can see. THE POSITIVE: This facility had a large well-kept pool,... Read more

"A Peaceful Place - Dry Camping"

At least during my stay off the maximum of 14 days. Site costs range from $23-$25 dollars. Facilities are older but maintained, well at least cleaned. I have no gripes as I'm staying in a fifth wheel. Some campsites are very unlevel. There is a... Read more

"Good Remote Boondocking"

I enjoyed the rugged area. Isolated, but there is a ranch down the road a piece. I had a herd of sheep daily though my camp and Cattle nearby. Road has some traffic. On the weekends it may be even more, I was here during the week. Road is... Read more

"Unique Overnight Stop "

When I arrived only the entrance was available. It was actually nice other than the road noise and it wasn't too bad. The entrance is tree covered, Their was a 30 amp cord to hookup to and I used my power surge protector for sure. Water was from a... Read more
