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

This was a nice place to hang while visiting family. Space was fine. Huge dog run and clean. Clean park and nice people. We would stay again. - Crsltman

Located on the north side of Hamilton and convenient to town yet quiet at night. Interior roads and sites are gravel and our pull through site was just long enough to leave the tow attached. Sites are very close together, it's doubtful an awning could be extended. Lots of long term residents with outside items and ATVs, many who park on the interior roads nearly blocking access to a large motor home. Cable TV didn't work, WiFi was too weak to use, but only small trees to block satellite. Verizon cell/data was strong. There are few options in the area, and the park takes advantage by being overpriced for what they offer. - Meanderman

Stayed here while visiting friends in Hamilton. Decent RV park. No frills. Up charge for cable TV of $5.00 per night meant we used DirecTV. Where we were parked there were no tree obstructions. Close to the river but no real access unless you were willing to get wet and muddy. We would stay here again. Managers very accommodating and friendly. - Golfdog

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

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

Absolutely the best USFS campground I've ever seen. Vault toilets only, but clean as a whistle. All pull through sites. Plenty wide in and out at the sites we saw. Nice trees, but not too many. Bears, wolves and elk rumored in the area but all we saw was a wild turkey and some squirrels. Would be an 11 with sewer hook-ups, but hey, it's a national forest CG. $5 to dump at Angler's Roost RV on the way north on US 93. - gs2rt

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

The RV Park Reviews said this is a 9.1 park - not even close. It is a small 6 site park with nice owners but cannot be seriously compared to 9+ parks we have stayed in. The RV Pk Review and park website both claim it has cable TV, but we were told that is not the case when we checked in. We were offered a satellite box for $5/day that you have to connect to the back of your TV (ever try that when the TV is are framed into your coach? and it only works on 1 TV). Our site was a pull through with decent shade. Since we have friends in the area and this is the only game in town we would probably stay here again. - denvercats

What a gem! Space for your awnings, level, and a bit of green lawn to enjoy with your picnic table. A well cared for little park. The hosts are gracious are in the middle of putting in a dump station and some more spots for the future. Darby is the setting for the Paramont series "Yellowstone". This beautiful ranch is just out of town. Apparently the crew stays here during filming. The Bitterroot river runs through Darby with lots of activity. Two fly shops right in town!. Extreme fire danger with Level 2 fire precautions currently as it is really hot and dry in the area. - Blowfishqueen

This is our local "go to" campground. Quiet, beautiful, well maintained. Some sites are along Bass Creek. Great hiking trails. Address is actually Florence, MT, off Hwy 93 at the end of Bass Creek Rd. between Stevensville and Florence. Some pull thrus. Recommend that anything over 36 feet NOT go down the right (west) loop due to a tree that hinders maneuverability to swing the loop. Have seen some rigs bigger than our 36 footer get in big trouble here. Dump stations available about 25 miles in either direction, north in Missoula or south in Hamilton. - Susan - Richard Nelson
