We came to see the ghost town and pan for gold in Bannack City. The campground is on the state park grounds. The campground was full.
It is not the nicest campground that I've stayed in, but it is still nice. Even the young campers, drinking beer, were polite enough to keep it down after dark.
I would not call this campground a destination location, however, Bannack City is a destination location. It is nice to have such a pleasant campground available on the grounds.
Highly recommended if you want to see the Bannack City ghost town. - griz326

There are two campgrounds at Bannack State Park, Vigilante and Road Agent. We stayed at Vigilante campground which not only has slightly more sites but ones that are larger. At this time of year we pretty much had our pick as far as campsites went and so chose site #9, right along Grasshopper Creek. The campground is quite pretty, but primitive. You do get a picnic table and a fire ring and I think they sell firewood during the summer. I believe there is also water available in the summer but there is no dump station so come with full fresh water tanks and empty holding tanks. Our $20 camping fee included the entry fee to the historic ghost town of Bannack, which is the real draw to the park and well worth a visit. - BruceandKathyWA

For a dry camping state park, this was an excellent campground. The main draw, the ghost town of Bannack is an absolute treasure. You could walk around for hours exploring the abandoned buildings all over this town. The visitor center is a wealth of information and great reading material about the pioneer/gold rush days in early Montana Territory history. This is the perfect overnight stop if you find yourself wanting to cut the drive from Idaho Falls to Missoula in half. Keep in mind that the campground is really there to be a base to explore the park, but there are some BLM areas adjacent to the park with hiking trails if that's your interest. Seriously, if you're at all into old west history, this stop is a must! - ringworm

We dry camped here for 4 nights on our way home from Glacier National Park after having driven by the site for over 30 years and it was a worth the stay. Operated by the Bureau of Reclamation there are 3 back in sites for RV or tents and a large dirt parking lot where you can stage as well. Tent sites are offered a large grassy area along the Beaver Head River with majestic shade trees and very clean pit toilets and water. Across the river on a classic suspension bridge is the day use picnic area complete with covered veranda, plenty of shade trees and ample front on the Beaver Head River to fish or float. This area is the end of the line for floaters/fisherman coming from miles upstream so the traffic around the "take out" ramp can get congested but all in all we found the folks to be friendly and once the sun set the whole place really quieted down. Only downsides is some traffic noise from I-15 and the nearby train tracks but we only heard 1 train a night during our stay. - MtnBroker

Have visited this park for 10-12 years on trips north and south on I-15 usually in the spring or fall. Spacious sites, good services and walking distance to good restaurant. Originally stayed as they were the only area park with cable. After a couple of stays the cable was removed. This time laundry now closed. They have always been concerned about freezing water. If overnight temps were expected to be in the 30s, they would ask you to disconnect before retiring. Went to flush about 9 and found no water. The park would go around and disconnect your hose, filter etc leaving them on the ground. Didn't like it but came to expect it even if overnite lows were in the high 30s. This time they told us freezing temps were expected and water should be disconnected at 6. I wanted to wash clothes that night and showed them the worst forecast on the net which showed 32 at 8 am as the only freezing temp. I promised to disconnect at 9 when it would still be in the 40s but they said I must disconnect at 6pm. I don't think it even froze. I left at 8 am and the previous evenings rain was still liquid on my car and no frosted windows. - Kbob

Very nice, quaint, quiet, attractive "senior friendly" rv park. No pool - no kids just lots of friendly RV'ers. Full Hook Up sites were clean, attractive and had great 30 amp service. Owner was most friendly, accommodating, and welcoming. Would have rated a 10 but WiFi was weak and over the air channels (3) were iffy. Nice easy 2 block walk to local restaurant, "Sparky's Garage," that serves excellent food and adult beverages. Location and access to downtown Dillon is excellent. Would definitely go back and spend more time in the area. - Breezy2

We stayed almost a week and it was absolutely a wonderful stay !! All the faculties were extra nice and the cleanest we have ever seen!! Green grass, cute tables, trees and we were parked next to a flowing creek !! We used the laundry and the bathhouse and they were immaculate. The owner was great..friendly, hardworking and made our stay so personal and wonderful! She helped us have a place to park our raft close to our trailer without even charging us! Within walking distance to several places and on-site movies and books she shared....really a beautiful park and wonderful owner!! Hated to leave ... great vacation rafting in Dillion. - Kay McCrary

We stayed at this free BLM campground by the reservoir. There are no hook ups and only vault toilets. Each campsite had a newer picnic table with a roof for shade and a fire ring. Views were gorgeous. Plenty of space between sites This was one of our favorite stops. - minnieannie

Admin. Note: As of May 2014 all campgrounds are open according to BLM district office.
Park is closed until further notice due to very low water. We just drove by today. Will add more info if I hear from anyone in Dillon. - Jeff S

This reservoir is managed by Bureau of Reclamation and there are several campgrounds all around the lake. The pay camp is at the Marina and has full hookups for $30.00 per night and 1/2 price for National Senior Passes. Many other campgrounds around lake are all free with tables and firepits and some even have cabanas. Beautiful historical setting for Lewis and Clark's expedition. - happy trails

Great park. WiFi was excellent. Gravel pads and interior roads. Grass between sites. A good dog walk area. Satellite reception was good. Checkin was easy. Long enough so I didn't have to unhook. Just far enough off the highway to not hear the noise. About 1/2 mile. Would stay here again. - bikenorth51

Good level gravel sites with plenty of grassy space between. Large grassy areas to walk dogs and a grassy area with picnic tables and a fire pit. Quiet area without too much light but close to I-15. WiFi was good with our booster but marginal otherwise. Plenty of space for big rigs with room to maneuver. No OTA TV or cable but would be good for Satellite. DVD's on loan in the office. Laundry facility was good, 2 washers and 2 dryers...$1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry. - Mitchells

Level site with limited wifi. Beautiful views of surrounding area. Nice place for one night as there are no services close. - tpain

Neighbors too close and mosquitoes morning, noon and night! Partner sites leave no room or privacy. IMO long term/seasonal residents spread out beyond their actual site. Our first ring was on the back side of our coach and I had to move the picnic table to the front side before we pulled in. - DandA83

We only stayed one night.The park was easy to get to and friendly staff. We did laundry but the laundry room was very dirty. The machines were older and also dirty. One washer and one dryer was out of order. I was surprised at how dirty the office area and the laundry room was for a KOA. The parking spot was okay but a little tight. - sandih

I was not crazy about this park, but it did have some nice features that some people would enjoy if they can overlook the issues. On the positive side, the park is easy to get to, has lots of grass and trees, is quiet, has a nice pool, and the service is friendly. The wifi is excellent and the Verizon signal strong. There are three o/a tv channels, and there is free cable included, although you have to set up a set top box to use it. It is less than a mile to walk into downtown Dillon, a charming little town. The negative aspects of the park all have to do with the sites. All but a handful are buddy sites, and if you are in a motorhome, and not in the pull through section, you have to pull forward into the site and then back out. The pull throughs are very long, though kind of close side to side. However, I observed two big rigs having serious trouble trying to get into the sites, as it is a little difficult to navigate through the park for big rigs. The back in sites have nice wide front yards (though they are shared), but are very short and highly unlevel. I had to move from the first site they put me in because I was on such a serious side to side slant, and my rig barely fit into the site. The second site was somewhat more level (still pretty seriously slanted to the side), and I fit in there with not an extra inch to spare, front to back. I looked at the website later to see how long the sites were supposed to be, and I discovered they do not list the site lengths at all. So if you tell them you have a 30' rig, you will get put into a 30' site, with not an inch to spare. The gravel pads for the sites are much smaller than the sites themselves, which is part of the problem with leveling, since you may only get two wheels on the pad. I would recommend this park to rigs of 27' or less, if you're ok with the leveling issue. If longer, get a pull through site (they aren't as nice, though). Big rigs, just stay away. - KAP99
