This campground is at the end of a 20 mile rough, gravel road but it is worth the drive. The scenery (badlands and Ft. Peck Lake/Missouri River) are worth it. The showers and bathroom are clean considering you have many swimmers/fisher people using them. There is a playground and a nearby marina that has food, gas and ice. We had to bring our own water due to a water problem that happened with the flooding. The campground host is extremely nice and helpful. There isn't a lot of shade of the actual campsites but there are some trees, and you can find shade to sit in. We will camp here again.
This campground was quieter and more spacious than other KOA's I have stayed at. When I made the reservation and asked how late the pool was open, the owner guaranteed they would keep it open until we got there so that my son could swim after a long day in the car. The owner and other staff were very nice, friendly, and helpful. The bathrooms were clean. I would camp here again.
The restrooms and laundry area were very clean. The tent area is pretty spacious but there is no shade (looked like there was a lot of shade for RV sites which are closer to the river). It was overpriced, as all KOA's are. It was right in town so we were awoken by a fire siren in the middle of the night. I might stay here again but probably would try the place on the east side of town instead.
The setting is the beautiful Wind River Canyon. The downside, for tent camping, is that they water the grass with a sprinkler system and do not warn tent campers when they are making reservations. If the campground host hadn't warned us and told us to put pots weighed down with rocks on top of the sprinkler heads (which took some searching) we would have woken up to wet tents. This is an outhouse (pit toilet) only facility, there are no showers. There are water spigots. The mosquito's were horrible this year but that seems to be an exception, due to the wet spring. There are showers in town at the hot springs, the state bath house.
I picked this over the Medora Campground (where I have stayed before) due to the reviews but I should have gone back there. This is very crammed and the bathrooms are not clean. There are a lot of people here and 2 sinks, 3 toilets, 3 showers is not enough. Also the reviewer about the train noise was wrong...they may not blow the horn but the bell ringing is very loud as the tracks are such a short distance away. There is also traffic noise. Being in a tent this is important. I will not stay here again.
We have camped here before but never again. It was overpriced before, but $50 for a tent site is ridiculous. We ended up moving to a cabin due to a storm and had no porch light and it took them until 11:30 pm to tell me they couldn't do anything about it. The bathrooms were not very clean and many were out of toilet paper and had overflowing wastebaskets. In past years they had been cleaner. This place has always had a problem with slow service, not enough people at their front desk during busy times and this year was even worse. If you are paying these prices you should expect faster service. And friendlier. We will stay in a hotel next time, never staying here again.
We loved this campground. The sites are HUGE, with great views of the mountains. The campground host met us at our site and brought us kindling for our fire without being asked. The bathrooms and shower were very clean. There is even a decent playground for kids. Add that to the rockhounding opportunities...this place is a gem!
This park had awful customer service. When I checked in I discovered that I would also have to actually "check out" when we left. I had questions/issues with that because we sometimes decide to leave very early or even very late at night. After some back and forth with the woman at the desk I was finally allowed to "check out" as soon as I checked in. Her manner was very condescending, and I did not appreciate being talked to that way. The wi-fi at this park never worked for us even when I sat on the porch right in front of the office. The restrooms looked like they had been remodeled in the last 10 years and were fairly clean, but one of them had a loose faucet in the shower with a big hole. Also, there were no picnic tables at the popup sites and nowhere nearby. I would not stay here again.
