This was by far the most expensive RV park that we stayed in on our trip. We booked by phone and were told that they could accommodate a 38' fifth wheel. In fact we were told that our site was 75' long and that it was a pull through. Our first impression of the park was of a well treed park in a bit of a valley. It was very busy with children running around on recumbent bikes that were low to the ground. Getting into our site was difficult for the size of our unit, and we had to ask someone to move their truck in order to make the turn at all. To say that this park is too tight for big units is an understatement. Although the site was a "pull-through" by name, there was no way to make the turns in order to actually pull through. It certainly was not 75' in length. In fact the rear end of our fifth wheel was very close to the road in the back and there was no room to park the truck in front unless it was sideways across the site. When we put out our slides, the bedroom slide was literally over the concrete table of our neighbour to the left. They could not use their fire pit until we pulled our truck out. They advertised an adult only hot tub, but it was small, dirty, and certainly not hot. We chose not to get in. The indoor/outdoor pool was questionable in its cleanliness and we chose not to use that either. The "free" breakfast was OK, but exactly the same all 3 days of our stay. It lacked any healthy choices except for a bowl of melon. The room in which we ate had a very dirty, smelly carpet on the floor. Supposedly there was free Wi-Fi, however, we were unable to get on at all while at our site. It was possible to access our email at 2 computers provided in the dining hall. The "free" bikes provided were never available, could not be booked, and were used by the same few children daily. On paper the park appears to have many things for children to do, but they are in poor repair. As adults, we found the park too busy, too loud, too tight, and in need of repair. The sites themselves are uneven, and the roads are narrow, bumpy, and have tight turns. This is definitely not a good park for larger rigs. If it had not been for pleasant neighbours, we would never have been able to get out of our site. It required several eyes to help make the manoeuvres necessary to back out and around a turn to the road. We personally will not use this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park has very uneven grounds and site locations. Difficult to navigate through the park and park in the assigned site. Not all sites provide sewer. Very cramped and very noisy all day long and the smoke from the campfires penetrates every RV. It feels like sleeping in a smokehouse. There are hardly sufficient reasons for the nightly rate of 69 or 70 dollars. The breakfast is OK and sufficient.There is nothing for adults to do here other than trying to avoid children on tricycles. The pool is very small, cold and overrun with toddlers and youngsters. The so called "adults only hot Jacuzzi" is a bathtub for perhaps 4 people. The "mini golf" is not even funny enough to describe. Close to Whitefish by car, about 7-8 minutes. Not good enough for us to return here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Big Rigs Beware!! Poor guest service. We are traveling with two other parties, we made our reservations in April and we were towing a trailer so we requested a pull through site. At check in our sites were not close to our traveling partners. After two inquiries we were not accommodated because they didn’t want to. Poor layout for big rigs. Our site was too narrow for our 38 foot motor home and we hit a rock. Even the approach to the site was too narrow. It is nice to have trees but they could be thinned for big rig access. Safety concerns. This campground offers very low, big wheel type bicycles but they do not have flags, so you can’t see kids zipping around when you are in a high profile vehicle. We thought the price was high for a narrow deluxe site. They do offer a “free” breakfast every day (same food every day). They have an indoor pool. It was not the type of guest service I expect at a KOA. I would never return here, nor would I recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A bit overpriced. Wi-Fi is unpredictable. Sites are cramped. Lots of things for kids to do but facilities need some upkeep. Staff is unprofessional and occasionally less than helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very expensive campground for what you get! We'd have been better staying at West Glacier! The KOA claims this is renowned for it's huge playground: well, it's not that big! A couple of swings and a wooden fort with slides! The pool is good (indoor and outdoor), the pond is tiny. There is an outdoor checkerboard. We had llamas and donkeys and goats wondering around so don't leave things outside or they will get eaten! Pizza place looked ok but was not open when we were here. Lots of indoor game machines for rainy days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After a long day on the road, we called and told there was a deluxe site available for $52.00. Pulled in to a dusty, crowded, small park. Staff very nice to work with but the park was not very suitable for us. They gave us the site and told us we would have to park the truck else where as the site was 35 feet. Once I snaked my way through parked vehicles, dodged kids on motorbikes and of course the dust, we arrived at our site. A motorhome prevented a short turn and the trailer across the alley prevented a wide turn into our 'drive through' site. After one failed attempt, we drove back to the office to try another site. They were full and did offer a overflow site (for $50.00 with only power!) We kept going down the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park for children. They have so much for them to do: swimming, lawn games and a petting zoo. They also have bicycle-style go-carts for them to use. We had a great spot with reception from our roof mount dish and easy parking. We did have to back out. Our rig would have been too big to make a corner. I did notice some rigs having a hard time getting into some places. It's a very busy park: no empty places at all. The employees were friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice area with plenty of shade trees. Nice supply of food at breakfast. Areas for kids to play also. A bit cramped with alotted space, but overall a nice friendly location. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Overpriced KOA. The sites were not very level, and could be hard to get into some of them with a larger unit, we had to switch sites that we could get into and our fifth wheel is only 34 feet. The pool was nice, some of the amenities are fee, but not enough to offset the high price. The highway noise is noticeable during the day, but quiets down at night. The access road is steep, but they were grading the gravel to smooth it out a bit. The whole park is gravel, but it is in the trees so thats nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our preference is for campgrounds with more separation between RVs; this one was tight. The bathrooms were nice, though. Overall, a serviceable site for one night, but I sure wouldn't make it a destination vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one week in Site 75, best site in the campground. Many of the full service sites have wooden decks, ours was about 10'x18' . Very well treed around perimeter, not much privacy between sites, though ours was large enough that neighbors were at least 30' away. Good location between Whitefish and Kalispell. Downsides would be laundry too small for a campground this size, many people waiting hours to get laundry done, 4 washers and 4 dryers. Pool is so/so, nowhere near as nice as Great Falls KOA, for example. Seemed to be more tents and bikers than typically seen, not a bad thing, we bike ourselves, just something noticeable at the time we were there. Would be closer to a 9 or 10 if the pool facilities were nicer and laundry facilities were of an appropriate size. Lots of wasps everywhere, many wasp traps hanging in the park. Guess that comes with the the forested location, just need to be prepared to deal with them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground itself is lovely, with lots of activities for kids, amazingly clean washroom facilities, and lots of extra amenities. We enjoyed the free breakfast, the pool, the petting zoo, and our kids really liked the bikes, volleyball and basketball. Our biggest complaint was with the size of the sites. Our site was incredibly tight to get into, and the sewer hook up was almost useless, seeing that it was located at the very front of the site. We could barely park our truck in front of our trailer. As well, the staff was very unorganized (although extra friendly and helpful). We were camping with a friend's family and upon arrival, asked how close our site was to theirs. According to them, our friends had no site reserved. We hastily booked them another site. Lo and behold, when our friends checked in, they did have a site, but were told that We didn't have a site booked and hadn't checked in yet, at which time they quickly booked US another site. It was a lot of needless stress for both parties. Once we were both there, everything was okay, although our friends found a note at their site on the second day of our four day stay wondering why they were still there, as the staff had them checking out the day before (the original booking was for all four days). They need to either get a more user friendly computer reservation system or do some much needed tech training with their staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in a "deluxe, full hook-up with wi-fi, pull through site". The site was super tight to get in, you'll definitely need an extension cord to reach the electrical, and there was no wi-fi at the site. Although advertised for big rigs, this park did not fit our fifth wheel and truck, while still hooked up! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very picturesque park, but rustic. Not really ideal for Big Rigs, we barely fit and had a hard time getting into out site. Nestled in a small valley with lots of trees, which was beautiful, but forget your satellite. We stayed a week and enjoyed this RV Park, but would not return as our rig is better suited to other RV Parks in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great family park with a free breakfast, free miniature golf, free bicycles, and free paddle boats. The breakfast was outstanding with fresh scrambled eggs, toast, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, cereal, juice and coffee! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. Emp. very nice. Went in the off season but from the looks of it there is
alot to do at the campground to keep the kids busy and within minutes to Glacier. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The spaces are a little tight. Staff wasn't attentive. The power went out for quite a while. Although we were told someone was on the way to check it out no one came. Finally another camper flipped a breaker and it came back on. We'd probably stay again because it is very convenient to everything. It was also clean and well kept. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here the night before we visited Glacier National Park and the night after our visit to GNP was over. The first night we had a pull-through and the second night we had a back-in. Both sites were FHU with 70+ channel cable TV. I don't think many sites are roof satellite friendly due to all the trees the park. We had a good 802.11 network connection the first night, but it was a little "iffy" on the second night as the park filled up with weekend visitors. 49 of the 57 sites are FHU but only 14 are pull-through. There are a couple separate tenting areas which had maybe 7 or 8 tents when we were there. Some RV sites also had tents. The bathrooms are inadequate for a park with tent sites. The laundry is 6 machines and inexpensive. The pool is small and by the motel, I certainly understand why previous reviewers talked about this park not being big rig friendly. The roads are fairly tight and only as few site would hole a larger rig. There do appear to be quite a few extended stay (both area workers and reverse snow birds) customers. For the quality level of this park, the price should be under $40. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the only RV park in Whitefish (KOA down the road), with a nice one mile walk or bike to town. Great restaurants there, plus a pretty City Beach over the bridge (drive to that), and a fantastic Farmers Market on Tuesday nights. The park has potential to be much better, given its location and the shade trees. Small laundry room and showers, but usually clean. Very tight roads and narrow sites. Very good cable TV. You check in at the Cheap Sleep motel; we never saw anyone in authority in the park. Avoid Site #34, next to the playground. Unsupervised kids left their toys and bikes in front of our rig, played with our water bib, screamed at each other. Another oddity was no outside lighting on the shower/laundry building nor street lights for the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park four times over the last ten years. Somewhat hard to find, but has the best location for access to Whitefish and local shopping. The park is behind a motel that is about a half block off of Highway 93. The motel is behind some retail outlets. Checkin is at the motel office. The park is well kept, with asphalt access road, and gravel sites. Our site was level. WI-Fi worked well. Verizon 4G access. Dump site. Although there are some big rigs in the park, personally I would not want to bring a motor home or fifth wheel longer than 36 feet into the park. Too tight. We will stay here the next time we visit Whitefish. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great location, short walk to downtown. Quiet (except for the train whistle) and cozy with lots of grass and trees. Very clean laundry, but only three machines. Spaces are a little small, but pleasant. I understand there are new owners who will be making more improvements soon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We recently stayed at the Whitefish RV park and were not impressed. The park is very tightly packed and some of the RV spots are very small and difficult to park in. Our main complaint however was with the management of the park. We made reservations 2 months in advance, when we showed up they did not have our reservations in their system. We were told we could stay 4 days in a site but may have to move. The site we originally wanted by the way was empty but we were told that a ‘long termer’ was coming in so we could not have it. Half way through our 8 day stay we were called on our cell phone and told we had to move our RV to a new spot, we had to do this immediately. We were on the lake so made our way in and 45 minutes later had our RV moved to the new smaller spot (which did not accommodate opening our toy hauler door). The spot we vacated was then empty and remained empty for the rest of stay, so why we had to immediately move, or move at all for that matter, is beyond us. The office staff were flustered, confused and depending on who you talked to you received different answers. We spoke with at least 4 other RVers at this park, all of which had lost reservations, had issues with the front office staff or, like us, had to move spots only to have their initial spot stay empty. Until the management at this RV park changes I would steer clear! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Both times we've stayed here we've scratched the side of our 40FT 5ver and a motor home with the close in tree branches. Sites are too close together for larger rigs and not level. We could only get 30 amps at our site. WI-FI worked well and the location adjacent to Whitefish is good. Would not go back unless park is improved. This park could be a gem, but not today. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has small cramped spaces and is hard to navigate. Our spot backed up to a lovely forest and was quiet, but the site was incredibly short and narrow, and was surrounded by poison ivy so I couldn't let our children out to play. The "playground" consists of two swings that are right next to the dog run. This park is very close to several restaurants and two large grocery stores, which was nice. Overall we would not stay here again, though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We've stayed here for a month the last 3 summers.The staff is great,and the place is immaculate and neat. Location is the best of any park in Whitefish. You can bike to anywhere, and the park is close to shopping and town. Everyone is friendly and nice. Clean showers and laundry room are a big plus. We will be coming back every year here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Nice park close to town and shopping, but anything over 40' is too tight for their spaces. We camped in a 43' and it was tight to get in. Had to ask someone to move their vehicle to back out, even though we were supposed to be in a pull through site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 2 nights with 6 RVs. The hosts were great. (Had assisted in arranging a Rental Van for the 13 of us.) This the 2nd time we have stayed here (July 2010 & July 2012). We do hope to be back. Thanks for the assistance and making sure that everything was OK during our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice quiet RV park behind a motel. The owner is very committed to his operation and monitors activity closely. Enjoyed being so close to Whitefish and the nice private areas between the sites. Hookups very good, easy on off access to highway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Tight spaces but was pretty close to town. Little bit of a mosquito problem, but that is to be expected in this neck of the woods. Restrooms were fine and staff was friendly enough. I'd stay here again, but mostly because I'm not aware of anything closer to town at this rate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice little park on the outer perimeter of Whitefish City proper. They have a limited number of 50 amp slots and unfortunately for us we were here in a 30amp site during what the locals were all saying was "an unusual heat wave". 1 A/C couldn't keep up in our nor our partner's 5th wheels. Therefore our main "problem" was we weren't in a 50amp slot. The small motel that is located in front of the RV park serves as the office for the RV park and has a small pool however, RV park guests cannot use the pool. There is a nice aquatic center within a 2 min drive but still, would've been nice to have use of an onsite pool. Wendys, Pizza Hut, Subway, and Taco shop within easy walking distance as is a car wash, Radio Shack, and NAPA Auto parts store. Wi-Fi kicked us off a lot at times but otherwise was passable. Cable TV was passable as well. Bottom line: This is not a 'resort' and there isn't much for little kids to do but our teens managed just fine. We would stay here again but would choose to be in a 50amp site if at all possible. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
In Whitefish close to super markets, shopping, indoor swimming, and attractions. Easy to bike downtown, along the river, to the pristine lake (many lakes in the area). Golf, skiing, more mountain bike trails than I've seen anywhere. Friendly management. Pretty, well designed park. Kept very clean. Friendly atmosphere among folks who come back year after year. Central location for trips to Glacier Park. Lots of events like music festivals, rodeos, car race track, pops festival, guitar festival, bike races, golf tournaments. Very popular location, and for a good reason. Consider yourself lucky if you get a reservation. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is the closest RV park to the beautiful town of Whitefish. It has lovely shaded sites with patches of grass. As stated before, some of the hookups are not conveniently located (there are quite long/deep sites with sewer hookup clear in the front, but with a little extra sewer hose, etc., this is not a problem and we appreciated the depth of the site as it provides extra room. We have a small 23' trailer and had no problem backing in...the roads are narrow, so I can imagine that a larger rig would require a little extra work. This little extra effort is worth it. The wifi was the absolute best of any park we have stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There is nice grass and shade. The park was difficult to maneuver. We had to ask two people to move their vehicles to back into our space. After we were parked in our space a motorcoach came in and the vehicles had to be moved again for him. He ended up complaining about the space and being moved. The only way he fit was to be pushed up against the bushes and the back. He had no place to park his toad. They moved him to a pull through space. The water connections were by the roads. Depending on whether you had a pull through or a back in they were all the way at the front or back. We had to use 30 feet of hose to connect to the water. The electric was all the way at the back. The sewer was toward the front and you had to dodge it when backing in. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice little park, hidden behind a low-budget motel (you check in at the motel desk). We got a pull-through site, but it was very tight getting in and out with our 38' MH with car on the dolly. Still, it was workable and the campground was worth it; very nice and clean, lots of trees, a real hidden Gem! We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is not aesthetically pleasing, but convenient to town. The restrooms and showers were very clean with a nice laundry too. The Manager was so unwelcoming it was hard to imagine. We would never stay here again because of this woman at the front desk. Surely there are more deserving people out there that need a job. I am certain a personnel change would increase their business. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were pleasantly surprised with this park. It was well laid-out, clean, quiet and conveniently located. Don't let the simple sign and commercial surroundings (at the street entrance) fool you into passing by this gem. The park is up behind the motel; tucked next to woods and away from street noise. There are a limited number of 50-amp sites and a few sites have no sewer. 14 pull-through sites, we stayed in #37, are a little tight to maneuver in or out of depending on the direction you enter. We found this park superior to the other national-chain campground listed for this town. Didn't try the wireless. Cable TV was good. A few permanent units seen on this visit. For meals try the Buffalo Cafe for an outstanding breakfast and the Rising Sun Bistro for a great lunch or dinner. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
