Beautiful park. The lake is very nice. Had some trouble finding a level site which was kind of surprising. Very nice pull throughs, but a lot of them seem to have kind of a peak in the middle. - Senior Camper

Great find. Highly recommend. Planned on stop. Rate reflects Senior 1/2 off plus $5 nightly utility charge: not $2.00 as indicated on web site. A locals favorite and they are very protective of 'their' park! We had numerous knocks on our door asking when we were going to be leaving, even though our tag showed our check out date! The nearby lake is gorgeous and very busy during the day, even though the water is chilly. Saw deer in our site. Only wish they had a dump station on site. No AT&T cell/internet. If you drive a short way toward the main road, you can get a bar or two of Verizon cell: if you're lucky. Even with the trees, we were able to get a shot for DirecTV. We biked here, enjoyed the beautiful scenery and found it very peaceful. Great camphosts, clean vault toilets. Most sites fairly level and large. Plenty of room for the largest of rigs. With so few available sites, I recommend arriving on a weekday by noon. Definitely would return. - Brujomar

Wow!! What a great site! Trees, huge boulders, nice quiet yet friendly neighbors, almost level pull-through asphalt pad in the shade, with water and electricity at the site. A nearby town has a dump station, so extended stays (about 1 week) would not work for me. I had a great drive over the nearby mountain roads, even though I did not find Twin Lakes. I absolutely will return!! - AluminumCloud

This place is one of the gems in Bitterroot Valley, MT! Beautiful grounds very well taken care of by amazing owners, who make this campground such a pleasure to stay! We camped in our 5th wheel for a week and it was hard to leave...The sites are level with nice trees, grass, picnic tables and views of the mountains. Spotless private bathrooms/showers, nice laundry room. Plenty of space for extra parking, super friendly people around and simply great vibes. Short walking distance from downtown and plenty of outdoor things to do. We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to stay again at Traveler's Rest next year when exploring Montana! - Freedomlovers

Nice, small park - 5 RV sites with hookups, large field for dry camping, about 6 or 7 small cabins. All sites on gravel, nice and level. This is a small campground located in a town where everything is accessible by a short walk. The managers are pleasant. The number of dogs was not. (Note to park managers: We are not all dog people. Find some way to tamp down the number of dogs, their barking, and the owners who think we all should love dogs.) This park is currently for sale. - TRH

Very small park behind a small cabin and motel facility in the town of Darby. Site is basically a flat field with larger shade trees between each of the gravel, grass and dirt sites which were all level. The way the sites are set up it could accommodate any size unit. We were able to park for our overnight stay without unhooking are 38 foot fifth wheel from the truck. Site 6 had the most privacy as it faced the fence dividing it from the nearby high school and gave us a private grass yard. Utilities were well placed and worked well, so there is only 30 amp service available. Television service is only available by a cable box which you can get at the office. There is no OTA television service . Both Verizon and Sprint worked well and the park has Wi-Fi available which seemed to work for routine browsing. The town of Darby is within walking distance and there are sporting goods stores, fuel, restaurants and grocery stores. The area is close to numerous hiking trails and fishing streams and lakes. - bbmidwife

This is one of the nicest NFS campgrounds I've been to, and I've been to a lot of them. Right on the East Fork of the Bitterroot River where fly fishermen were hauling in the trout. The host told me the park had flooded in spring and didn't open until early June. Consequently, there is green grass but also mosquitoes. Very small park but very nice. Nice host, too, who really keeps the park spiffy. Site #2 is short, [25' limit] but backs up to the river with easy access. Contrary to a previous review, no ATVs while I was there. - mockturtle

I would have rated this Forest Service campground a lot higher if it wasn't for the campers who used Spring Gulch as their private ATV course. A large group, with at least four ATVs, decided to use the interior campground road for their ATV usage. The noise level was terrible and you were not able to safely enjoy the campground less you hit one of them with your vehicle or they compromised your safety while walking. The peace and serenity of a beautiful setting was ruined by these inconsiderate campers. Forest Service personnel were aware of this situation, but failed to stop the ATV usage. This went on for at least three days.
On the positive side, this is a very nice campground with well placed sites with plenty of trees and privacy along the Bitterroot River. It should have been a great visit but it just goes to show how a few can ruin a good time for the many.
Although I made it with my 5TH Wheel (about 55' total), I had a tough time clearing the tree limbs around the cul-de-sac upon exiting.
Price reflects Senior/Access Pass. - jopa

This National Forest Campground is located on US 93 2.9 mi north of Sula (1/4 mi north of milepost 15)! It has 10 sites, plus 1 bicycle site, with picnic tables, fire rings, and vault toilets. It also has a picnic area and handicapped accessible facilities to include a fishing pier on the river. Campground can accommodate trailers and RV's to 50'. There are no hook-ups but water is available. We booked 2 nights and found it to be so pleasant we booked 8 more nights. Sites are level and all close to the creek flowing through the RV park. We cannot wait to visit this campsite again! The camphosts were friendly and helpful. - ournextstop

This is a forest campground with no amenities but there is no charge. The bathrooms aren't particularly clean, but they are supplied with toilet paper and don't have an overwhelming odor. A moose walked through our campsite one evening. - cactuslady

Noticing the last review of Angler's Roost was written in August 2016, an updated traveler's account is long-overdue. Unfortunately, we are in a position to write one. Where to begin? Well, the shabby "marquis" on highway 93 still proclaims "..R SALE". A review from 2012 describes the owner as depressed, disinterested and derelict with estranged co-owners...at best, a less than optimum situation for an "..R SALE" property. Clearly, not much has changed in six years. Despite making a reservation months in advanced, we arrived to find a wandering mason and crew had their rig in our spot and was MIA. We had to occupy ourselves off-campus for several hours and then return to watch the would-be squatter finally remove his little world to a spot two tiny sites away. This crew did treat us to continual entertainment, however...mostly a parade of semi-infirm workers and their hobbling dog. Let's not forget the worker passed out underneath the "big rig" one very hot afternoon. Our site almost defies description. Backed into our piece of Paradise, our vista as we sit next to our little Winnie is the back side of the main building. A bamboo shade dangles precariously from a large second floor window. A drooping sheet metal shed roof below adds the perfect counterpoint. All this loveliness enhanced by the traffic on 93, so close it actually provides the only air circulation thus far. The clean water hook-up and the septic "hole" are inches apart, which adds a certain excitement, as one falls asleep each night awaiting stomach cramps. An enormous brown trout which is displayed over the welcome desk, says it all. When asked if it was caught here, the desk clerk cheerfully offered that " it washed up....dead". It says it all. Unless you have a lot of alcohol onboard, continue to Idaho or Canada. You have been warned. - PKT

This park is filled probably 75% with long term residents, many of whom have units that likely are not even roadworthy. The owner (who is onsite often) is tired of running the place and depressing to talk to. He has let the place go, and just shows up and goes through the motions. The park is for sale but the owner says any sale will have to be approved by the other two partners, who has not spoken to in 5 years. So the place limps along kept in business by the long term residents.
We were going to stay down by the river but the trees have not been trimmed in some time, and they expected me to drive a 13' tall 5W through tree branches that began at say 6' above the ground. They need to trim the trees if they expect people with nice rigs to go down and camp by the river. They relocated me to one of the parking lot style spots. The owner says not to back up too far because the water line is buried very shallow. Our site was in a depression that filled with water when it rained. The sewer connection was almost as high as the outlet from the camper, because it was up a hill from where we parked. No thought went into this design.
Too bad what happened to this place, might have been nice at one time. - Stax

The park has no for sale sign now. We were parked in a pull through on
grass/dirt. Electric good. The area was clean. The person that checked us in was courteous. The restroom was clean and the showers looked good.
We would come back if in the area again. - carold

It is a wide spot in the road (population 37) about 20 miles south of Hamilton. The people there were very helpful and friendly. The spots were gravel and fairly level. Water and power were good. Didn't try the restaurant but heard from other campers that the food was good. We stayed two nights and would have stayed more but had to be on our way. We would stay here again if it fit our schedule. - Kalama Traveler

We stayed here in there most simple dry cabin to get a roof over our head on our way to float the river for a week. I tried reserving this place via Airbnb but the host misunderstood my reservation and canceled my stay (said it was booked, when in fact it was available). So fortunately I knew of the location and called directly and resolved my reservation. Once we showed up, we were very astonished that the bedding had not been cleaned and there was a wet towel on our bed. We had to tear apart our truck to get our sleeping bags out as it was after hours. We were on a time crunch in the morning to hit the road and barely caught the host and they only gave us a very meager 15% discount for sleeping in our own sleeping bags. Though this place could easily have made up for the challenges and disgusting bedding we had, their efforts were pitiful. The location is great and a very affordable, simple place otherwise. - Ryan L

A lovely spot to visit, the location is beautiful and peaceful. The facilities are very nice, and the staff and owners very helpful. The restaurant has decent food at reasonable prices, and the store has enough variety to satisfy most needs. We'd definitely stop here again. - TomcatRV

This is a campground in the forest just 5 miles from Hamilton. The host is conscientious and helpful and keeps the pit toilets reasonably clean. The campground has only six sites and is within walking distance of two hiking trails. There is NO charge to use this campground. - cactuslady
