After spending the afternoon visiting Big Hole National Battlefield, Big Hole River RV Park, in nearby Wisdom, MT, was a convenient - not scenic- place to spend the night. The RV park is small, safe, well-maintained, and professionally managed by its on-site owners. Interior roads and parking pads are gravel. There are a mix of back-in and pull-thru and sites, all full hook-up with 30/50-amp service. All sites are full-sun. Sites are closely spaced. Restrooms and showers are housed in a new bath house. The rear edge of the campground is bordered by a field/pasture that's occupied by a flock of sheep and a few junked vehicles. A small pond borders the front of the CG. Park wifi worked well. No Verizon cell service within the CG. The CG is a short walk from Wisdom's tiny business area. Weather permitting, the CG is open May-November. We would stay again if travelling through the area. - Kona Boy

Great small park with excellent access to the upper Big Hole River, the owners are very nice, they have put a ton of work into the park. They have the nicest Bath House we have ever seen and are continuously improving the park. Sites are level, Water, Power and Sewer are all good. There is no OTA television or Cell service but they have excellent WIFI, we will be staying with them again. - Tfrout

New owners with great plans for the future. Park is basically the same as 3 years ago only now it is $35 per night. Park is close to every thing in Wisdom. No discounts as far as I can tell. Full hookups, elect, water and sewer. It has a bath house with toilet and shower but no laundry. Functional for a nights stay. - woodytc

Didn't actually stay here. Drove in, intending to stay, but chose not to. First, the packed dirt roads have potholes that could swallow a Mack truck. Worst I've encountered anywhere. Then, the sites are not very private and are so shrouded in trees the sky isn't visible. It was dark and gloomy. I'm at a loss to understand the prior review. - mockturtle

May Creek Campground (Beaverhead National Forest) is located just off of Highway 43, between Highway 93, Lost Trail Pass and the town of Wisdom, MT. Beautiful campground with lots of Lodgepole Pine. The interior road is dirt and gravel and the aprons are the same. There were a few pot holes in the road but, all and all it wasn’t too bad. Didn’t have any problems driving through the campground nor did we have a problem finding a campsite to fit in. Some sites are big rig friendly. Not very many people there over the weekend so it was very peaceful. Some of the sites are closer together than others and some sites aren’t level. We stayed in site #13 and had enough room (we’re 38’ class A) to get both bedroom slides out, living room slide and awning. The water faucet was just across the road from our site. There are only two non threaded pressurized faucets in the campground. A Water Thief makes filling the tank easier and you can find them at a Camping World. We were able to get our dome satellite in from our site. Long site and almost level. Vault toilets that were very clean but not lit up at night. We didn’t see a camp host in the four days we were there. This is a pack it in pack it out campground, NO garbage service. No cell or Aircard signal (Verizon) there. Closest town that we could get a cell signal was in Sula at the Bitterroot Ranger Station on Highway 93. There is a market in Sula and further to the north in Darby. Closest dump station going east is in Wisdom, Mt. at the Sinclair Gas Station. The other closest dump is in Sula going north on the 93 at the Sula Store & Campground. Big Hole National Battlefield is about 7 miles (from the campground) to the east off of Highway 43. The visit gives you a better understanding of what our government did to not only the Nez Perce Indians but other tribes as well. Very well done movie (25 min.) on the history of the Nez Perce flight and encounters with the 7th Calvary. Campground rates are $10.00 or $5.00 with a Golden Age Pass. We really enjoyed our stay at May Creek and would love to stay there again. - jannie5

The campground is beautiful, under all the pine trees. There are also cabins you can rent but, I didn't see them. There was one outhouse that was a "REAL" outhouse. The only showers and real bathrooms were available at the pool.
Campsites are small with only one pull-through. The rest of the sites are small and would be okay for 15-20 ft trailers, although the plumbing and electric and water placement didn't make sense.
The hot pools were warm. I was surprised at how beat up the pool was. Also, there was a hot tub on a shaky platform and there was mold all over the ceiling and it smelled like mildew. I was really disappointed in the pool and hot tub.
After seeing the hot tub area I didn't even go to the showers. My son said the shower area was kind of rotted and the floor was broken up.
If you want to be self-contained in your camper and don't plan on swimming, it was beautiful. We saw a deer even.
As for the staff: Mind you we went on their off season, but we were told by the guy there that the site we had was $35 a night, and he had no idea about the discount. He couldn't take our money and we pretty much had to chase them down to pay them. When we found the guy (that knows about paying) we were told it was $43 and then a $5 discount per night. We had already spent the night there so there was nothing we could do. - meemers

Price included reservation fee. A gorgeous campground well off the road giving a classic Montana experience. The sites are well separated with lots of trees and shade. There were sites suitable for tents and RVs; ours was a 100 foot pull through. No hookups, but very generous generator hours. The pit toilets were spotless. Lots of wildlife - we had a deer walk through our site 10' from where we were sitting. Verizon signal changed between no service and 1 dot with extended service. The place was very quiet, even on a holiday weekend. Note you will probably have to do some leveling. - UTTransplant

Nicely laid out with paved roads throughout park. However, the road to the park is not paved but is good gravel. Sites are large and set far apart. Far enough from Hwy 93 that there is no road noise. Will accommodate rigs up to 50'. Most sites are shady. Only 4 sites taken mid-week in July. Vault toilets and water throughout park. Host couple on site. Reservations are available. We would camp here again. Rate reflects senior camping rate. - mvano

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 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.

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

Aug 2019 - $16.00
$16.00 is based on the monthly rate. Great small park, the owners keep it clean quiet and comfortable. Good pizza and cold beer at the onsite pizzaria all reasonably priced. Beautiful area to fish and hike, the only draw back is no cell service and spotty WIFI, but sitting out next to the river everyday makes up for it. Salmon is the nearest town to do laundry and to grocery shop, if your looking to relax and get off the road for a day a week or a month we highly recommend this park, we will definitely be staying again. - Tfrout

This is a great spot for hunting and fishing. The sites are a bit close and are all back-in along the river. Lawn behind sites up to foliage along river with some limited river access near owner residence. Setting is fantastically beautiful. Unfortunately we were unable to experience the restaurant, which is open Thurs-Sat only. We heard that it is excellent. Would stay here again if in area. - wjslam

This is a very nice small park and your back in will be right on the North Fork of the Salmon river. The sites are level with plenty of space for an easy back in. The hook ups are centrally located. The wifi is so/so depending on when you use it. There is no AT & T nor antenna TV. The owner is on site all the time and is very helpful with local information. - Al and Anne-Marie
