Clean facility, friendly staff, nice pool area, quiet park with fast internet and shaded sites. BEWARE of the low bridge under I-90 at the entrance to the park --- it's only 13'-3" and below tall trailers. You WILL damage your RV roof if trying to exit I-90 and go under roadway.

Sites are not level, restroom(womens) the sinks were very dirty, shower floors were extremely dirty. No doors on the toilets area, only curtains. Very sparse store. Grounds need to be maintained. Everywhere is overgrown with grass and weeds. The best part of this park is that it is on a hill and has a wonderful view. Wish the dog walk was fenced, so the dogs could run a little. safe travels

I rate it low on appeal because of the Dust. Seems all too common for RV parks in this part of the country to have gravel/dirt driveways which results in lots of dust. And our fellow RVers don't seem to care that some of us prefer not to be enveloped by clouds of dust so they drive through the park at top speed. This park is a few miles east of Bozeman right off I-90. Yes there is train noise and some highway noise but the park is up on a hill with a nice view. Most of the sites are pull through with back-in sites around the perimeter. The pull-thru sites have some trees for shade. There is WiFi which we found to be reasonably stable. Depending upon your pull-thru location you may be able to get satellite signal but don't ask the person at the office. They just say, sure, you should be able to, however they have no idea. My recommendation for RV park management is to keep notes on each site as to whether satellite signal is possible for both fixed mount and portable. This would be a great service for your customers. We had a pull-thru with full hook-ups and 50 amp electric. The sites are pretty narrow with little if any room for outside living. The bathrooms could use some work but were reasonably clean. They allow tent camping on the grass right around the common area of the park which seems unwise. I often found these campers sort of taking over the restroom. We paid $50.75 per night.

The campground offers great views if you are lucky enough to get a site on the outside, however, we were four rows in. The sites have small trees but are very narrow, barely enough room for slide outs. The biggest drawback was the very frequent train whistles! It kept us up all night. The second drawback is the distance to the Yellowstone park. It is at least 90 miles to the west entrance and 70 miles to the north entrance. I can't rate the facilities seeing that we didn't use them. Overall it was expensive to stay here and I would recommend looking for a quieter campground.
