I wanted to love this place. It is a mom and pop joint that serves homemade ice cream and pie as well as lunch. (We did not camp here or see the campsites or cabins). The store carries touristy t-shirts as well as sundries needed for camping out. Selling dead beaver pelts, though, was a real turn off! My kids... More

We had just bought our new trailer and were looking for a campground near Swan Lake over Memorial weekend. Found this location on the Internet and decided to give it a try. Very nice, clean, quiet, quant campground and facilities. The owners were very welcoming and we are planning another trip up that way again.

My husband & I stayed one night in one of the Yurts. We were traveling through to a Rally in Montana. We wanted to stay in Big Fork but could not find availability. We were very happy to find this campground. The staff was very helpful and the facilities were very clean. The next morning we had breakfast there and... More

We stayed in cabins 3 and 2, and the beds were actually really comfy. It was so quiet and the most amazing getaway. We "camped" but got a good night's sleep! Swan Lake is a beautiful area. If you want to see Montana, this place is a hidden treasure. If you own an RV they also have hookups for RVs.... More

It was a great value. Owners and staff were very friendly and one could find anything he or she would need in the trading post. Coffee was free for renters. The facility was by a busy road but traffic seemed to settle down fairly early and I did not hear any during the night. Flathead Lake was within 15 to... More

My family camped here for the week of 4th of July. We had a great time. Nice quite shaded camping with a creek and pond to fish or play in. The best part of the stay was the owners Joe and Jocelyne. The were very nice and they are the kind of people you feel you have known forever. Highly... More

We were lucky enough to find a vacancy over the Fourth of July weekend and we were satisfied with the amenities. However we didn't have electricity to blow up our bed, nor was there free coffee in the morning. That being said, the staff was curteous and accommodating and we were intrigued with stopping and staying in a yurt in... More

We're glad we were able to fit you in on the 4th. As you guessed, it is our busiest day of the year. I am sorry you didn't get the free coffee because we definitely have it for all our camping guests. Sometimes you have to remind the clerk as we might not know all our guests by sight. Also,...

We camped here in a Motorhome for 1 night passing through. Jocelyn and Joe are 2 of the friendliest people we've met on our travels. They opened up a few days earlier than the usual start of summer to allow us to stay, and then lent us their truck to drive to the local restaurant too. They were still setting... More

Very nice cabins, no water or electricity. Also they will be 75 yards from your car. Also you if you stay on a weekend, you may want to call the swan river bar and grill a couple of doors down to see if they will have a live band going. Kept us up till midnight....

After bicycling (GDMBR) all day and in need of a shower and cleaning some clothes this was an excellent place to stay because they have it all. The showers and restrooms were clean and the store was well supplied with ice cream products.
