Beautiful campground. Nice level sites. No tables or fire rings though. Bathroom/ showers were clean but needed work! Rust on floor, no bench, no bath mat, no place in shower for your personal items. Dumpster was spilling over. Store and ice cream shop was fantastic. Bottom line $45 for water and electric. I expect a bit better amenities.
The Moose Crossing Sweets & Gift shop in the NE corner of the Cardwell Store makes great coffee. It is pretty rare to find this good of espresso and cappuccino in rural Montana. They also have a good selection of ice cream and candy, especially gummies. Friendly, well trained staff. No place to sit inside.
As noted earlier, trying to find a RV site in the cooler months can be quite the challenge. En-route to Butte, we stumbled by a billboard advertising this cute little park. We called and found that they had space with water and power. The park was clean and snow free. Diesel fuel on site. There are some permanent dwellers but they are all kept together in one specific area. Showers and restrooms are available.
Finding campgrounds that are open in the northern part of the USA during the cooler months (November to March) is NOT easy. Finding this one was a blessing! Making sure to pull in whilst still daylight, we checked in at the gas station, per sign's instructions. The gas station is directly in front of the RV park. (Another plus as we did not have to go far to fill truck up with diesel once unhitched.) Once checked in we proceeded to find our 50 amp spot. (NO map was provided except the one shown to us in the gas station.) The sites are gravel but we had no troubling leveling. The 50amps are also long which was great for our 42' fifth wheel. WiFi was reasonable. That code is provided for you when you check in, along with the camp rules. The only additional request/demand that was made was that we turn the water off at night. This is totally reasonable for the time of year as it does and did go below freezing. Due to having everything we need in the camper we did NOT use the laundry or shower facilities. Easy to access off of I90 in Cardwell, you will experience some road noise from the interstate. Having not been used to that for a while it did wake me up a few times. Would we stay here again? Yes, if passing through this way. Probably not a campground we would want to spend a long time at. NO playground for kids but there is a pond. Campground was clean.…
We stayed two nights at this campground. During that time, the bathroom wasn't cleaned at all. I asked at the front desk when it gets cleaned, and was told once a week. The shower and bathroom floors were filthy. There were no paper towels, and I was told they ran out. The washing machine was set for cold water, but was steaming hot instead. It is noisy at night because you are right next to I90 and the all-night truck noise. The only good things were the very fast WiFi and the not-too-pricey supplies offered in the store. If you do stay here (or close by), be sure to go on the cavern tour at Lewis & Clark park.
