Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park, Whitehall, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night during our trip in July. We wouldn't have minded staying another night if we had the time. Ther are 42 sites listed, and we had an "electric" site, and there were 30 and 50 AMP plugs available. Not all sites have power and none had any water or dump, there was a dump station, and potable water was also available near there. We filled our water tank and dumped. No cost to dump if staying there. Also, no cost if staying at the campground to park at the gift store at the caverns which are 3-miles up the mountain from the campground. We were at a perimeter pull through site, and it fit our combined 49-foot overall length 5th wheel and truck with much room to spare. We were very glad to have power due to the hot weather and had our a/c going until the cooler evening. It was windy from the west until sunset when the winds died down, the mosquitoes picked up! We saw an evening Ranger talk about bats and all in attendance were eaten alive by the mosquitoes. The site, P-3, was not very level but our leveling system got the Jayco level without any problems. Although in a drought area the grounds were clean with some greenery, however, no open fires were advised. The sites are all dirt or gravel parking as are the roads through the campground. The road in, to the visitor center and caves are all paved. At the visitor center near the entrance and campground, there is parking for a few RVs but I'd say still be careful if crowded for getting stuck there and unable to turn around. At our site, we had no cell service (Verizon). A railway is across the highway from the campground and along the Jefferson River. The train was very loud as our site was a close proximity and when it came through during the middle of the night but only came through that one time. We would stay there again! We camped at Lewis & Clark Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Drive up and take a cave tour, we took a shorter and not strenuous tour for handicapped and young kids since we had the young grand kids with us. Take a light jacket as it stays in the 40s in the caves. The visitor center is worth a stop as are the gift shops at the caves. Food is available as are public restrooms. In cooler weather or early summer, there are hiking areas in the surrounding mountains. With no cell service, we could enjoy the quiet area.

Cody KOA, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

First time in 20 years we'd been there, a great place for seeing the area. A bit far to be a 'basecamp' for Yellowstone but many use it for that. The Cody area has grown considerably but is fun to explore. We were just one night on our way to West Yellowstone so didn't get time to explore too much this trip. We had a patio site, which was small but functional. Pancake breakfast in the mornings and a well stocked store/gift shop. We camped at Cody KOA in a Travel Trailer.

So much to say about the Cody area, must see attractions, in town and in the general area. The Cody Night Rodeo during the summer is a must see, the Buffalo Bill Museum is top notch and can take several days just for that! A well reviewed area I can't say much more about.

Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $67.00
Overall Rating:

Exceptionally clean and well kept, a crew was out quite often taking care of the grounds. We had a site with a very nice patio and it was well worth it. We would have no problem staying again. A really nice kids playground area, with pool and large air bouncy play area. It was hot in July, I'd go back in the spring or fall without the grandkids. Lots to see if into dinosaurs! We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is the place to stay if you are into all things dinosaur. A very nice kind of high desert area this park is not too far from the Dinosaur National Monument with the Fossil Bone Quarry and lots of trails and hikes, petroglyphs, and while there is national park camping in the monument, they have no hookups and are not accessible to long RVs. We felt this was the much better place to stay for our several day visit especially with the heat.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

Just out of the 'town' and off a side road, this KOA can be a little tricky to find, we had to turn turn around, with 33' trailer, and it was apparent others had to also. A large facility, most sites were "OK" due to inclines and park set up. We were in a curve site in a turn so it was close to the neighbors. The BEST laundry room! lots of washers and dryers, a nice change! Everything in area is EXPENSIVE. Times of no cell service for us. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful scenery. This place is close to the East entrance to Glacier and everything in the area supports that. Explore in a tow car or truck, can't take most RVs into the park due to roads.

West Glacier KOA, West Glacier, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $116.00
Overall Rating:

We wanted to have that "one last night out" of our trip at this KOA as we'd never stayed there before. The BEST KOA we'd ever stayed at, also the most expensive campground we ever stayed at. You must take into account the area location and the site we picked, a large pull through site with a exceptional patio area. We could only stay one night but would love to, no, we WILL be going back. Tons of activities for everybody, bus type tours to Glacier available, a large playground area with sections for different ages, same with the pools. Ice Cream vendor, breakfast served, very clean and busy. I attended an evening photography talk with my daughter, really enjoyed it. Really nice way to end our vacation! And then the drive home. We camped at West Glacier KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Going, on a mid summer weekend? Take a bus tour from the KOA, or relax at the KOA and stay long enough to go during the week, less people and much nicer than driving in a slow traffic jam up the Going To The Sun Road to find no parking anyplace even at Logan Pass. Rangers were there turning cars away.
