Big Rigs Beware!! Poor guest service. We are traveling with two other parties, we made our reservations in April and we were towing a trailer so we requested a pull through site. At check in our sites were not close to our traveling partners. After two inquiries we were not accommodated because they didn’t want to. Poor layout for big rigs. Our site was too narrow for our 38 foot motor home and we hit a rock. Even the approach to the site was too narrow. It is nice to have trees but they could be thinned for big rig access. Safety concerns. This campground offers very low, big wheel type bicycles but they do not have flags, so you can’t see kids zipping around when you are in a high profile vehicle. We thought the price was high for a narrow deluxe site. They do offer a “free” breakfast every day (same food every day). They have an indoor pool. It was not the type of guest service I expect at a KOA. I would never return here, nor would I recommend it to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A bit overpriced. Wi-Fi is unpredictable. Sites are cramped. Lots of things for kids to do but facilities need some upkeep. Staff is unprofessional and occasionally less than helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very expensive campground for what you get! We'd have been better staying at West Glacier! The KOA claims this is renowned for it's huge playground: well, it's not that big! A couple of swings and a wooden fort with slides! The pool is good (indoor and outdoor), the pond is tiny. There is an outdoor checkerboard. We had llamas and donkeys and goats wondering around so don't leave things outside or they will get eaten! Pizza place looked ok but was not open when we were here. Lots of indoor game machines for rainy days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After a long day on the road, we called and told there was a deluxe site available for $52.00. Pulled in to a dusty, crowded, small park. Staff very nice to work with but the park was not very suitable for us. They gave us the site and told us we would have to park the truck else where as the site was 35 feet. Once I snaked my way through parked vehicles, dodged kids on motorbikes and of course the dust, we arrived at our site. A motorhome prevented a short turn and the trailer across the alley prevented a wide turn into our 'drive through' site. After one failed attempt, we drove back to the office to try another site. They were full and did offer a overflow site (for $50.00 with only power!) We kept going down the road. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great park for children. They have so much for them to do: swimming, lawn games and a petting zoo. They also have bicycle-style go-carts for them to use. We had a great spot with reception from our roof mount dish and easy parking. We did have to back out. Our rig would have been too big to make a corner. I did notice some rigs having a hard time getting into some places. It's a very busy park: no empty places at all. The employees were friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice area with plenty of shade trees. Nice supply of food at breakfast. Areas for kids to play also. A bit cramped with alotted space, but overall a nice friendly location. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Overpriced KOA. The sites were not very level, and could be hard to get into some of them with a larger unit, we had to switch sites that we could get into and our fifth wheel is only 34 feet. The pool was nice, some of the amenities are fee, but not enough to offset the high price. The highway noise is noticeable during the day, but quiets down at night. The access road is steep, but they were grading the gravel to smooth it out a bit. The whole park is gravel, but it is in the trees so thats nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our preference is for campgrounds with more separation between RVs; this one was tight. The bathrooms were nice, though. Overall, a serviceable site for one night, but I sure wouldn't make it a destination vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one week in Site 75, best site in the campground. Many of the full service sites have wooden decks, ours was about 10'x18' . Very well treed around perimeter, not much privacy between sites, though ours was large enough that neighbors were at least 30' away. Good location between Whitefish and Kalispell. Downsides would be laundry too small for a campground this size, many people waiting hours to get laundry done, 4 washers and 4 dryers. Pool is so/so, nowhere near as nice as Great Falls KOA, for example. Seemed to be more tents and bikers than typically seen, not a bad thing, we bike ourselves, just something noticeable at the time we were there. Would be closer to a 9 or 10 if the pool facilities were nicer and laundry facilities were of an appropriate size. Lots of wasps everywhere, many wasp traps hanging in the park. Guess that comes with the the forested location, just need to be prepared to deal with them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The campground itself is lovely, with lots of activities for kids, amazingly clean washroom facilities, and lots of extra amenities. We enjoyed the free breakfast, the pool, the petting zoo, and our kids really liked the bikes, volleyball and basketball. Our biggest complaint was with the size of the sites. Our site was incredibly tight to get into, and the sewer hook up was almost useless, seeing that it was located at the very front of the site. We could barely park our truck in front of our trailer. As well, the staff was very unorganized (although extra friendly and helpful). We were camping with a friend's family and upon arrival, asked how close our site was to theirs. According to them, our friends had no site reserved. We hastily booked them another site. Lo and behold, when our friends checked in, they did have a site, but were told that We didn't have a site booked and hadn't checked in yet, at which time they quickly booked US another site. It was a lot of needless stress for both parties. Once we were both there, everything was okay, although our friends found a note at their site on the second day of our four day stay wondering why they were still there, as the staff had them checking out the day before (the original booking was for all four days). They need to either get a more user friendly computer reservation system or do some much needed tech training with their staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in a "deluxe, full hook-up with wi-fi, pull through site". The site was super tight to get in, you'll definitely need an extension cord to reach the electrical, and there was no wi-fi at the site. Although advertised for big rigs, this park did not fit our fifth wheel and truck, while still hooked up! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very picturesque park, but rustic. Not really ideal for Big Rigs, we barely fit and had a hard time getting into out site. Nestled in a small valley with lots of trees, which was beautiful, but forget your satellite. We stayed a week and enjoyed this RV Park, but would not return as our rig is better suited to other RV Parks in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great family park with a free breakfast, free miniature golf, free bicycles, and free paddle boats. The breakfast was outstanding with fresh scrambled eggs, toast, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, cereal, juice and coffee! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. Emp. very nice. Went in the off season but from the looks of it there is
alot to do at the campground to keep the kids busy and within minutes to Glacier. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've stayed here for a month the last 3 summers.The staff is great,and the place is immaculate and neat. Location is the best of any park in Whitefish. You can bike to anywhere, and the park is close to shopping and town. Everyone is friendly and nice. Clean showers and laundry room are a big plus. We will be coming back every year here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 6 / 10 ]
Nice park close to town and shopping, but anything over 40' is too tight for their spaces. We camped in a 43' and it was tight to get in. Had to ask someone to move their vehicle to back out, even though we were supposed to be in a pull through site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed 2 nights with 6 RVs. The hosts were great. (Had assisted in arranging a Rental Van for the 13 of us.) This the 2nd time we have stayed here (July 2010 & July 2012). We do hope to be back. Thanks for the assistance and making sure that everything was OK during our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice quiet RV park behind a motel. The owner is very committed to his operation and monitors activity closely. Enjoyed being so close to Whitefish and the nice private areas between the sites. Hookups very good, easy on off access to highway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Tight spaces but was pretty close to town. Little bit of a mosquito problem, but that is to be expected in this neck of the woods. Restrooms were fine and staff was friendly enough. I'd stay here again, but mostly because I'm not aware of anything closer to town at this rate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice little park on the outer perimeter of Whitefish City proper. They have a limited number of 50 amp slots and unfortunately for us we were here in a 30amp site during what the locals were all saying was "an unusual heat wave". 1 A/C couldn't keep up in our nor our partner's 5th wheels. Therefore our main "problem" was we weren't in a 50amp slot. The small motel that is located in front of the RV park serves as the office for the RV park and has a small pool however, RV park guests cannot use the pool. There is a nice aquatic center within a 2 min drive but still, would've been nice to have use of an onsite pool. Wendys, Pizza Hut, Subway, and Taco shop within easy walking distance as is a car wash, Radio Shack, and NAPA Auto parts store. Wi-Fi kicked us off a lot at times but otherwise was passable. Cable TV was passable as well. Bottom line: This is not a 'resort' and there isn't much for little kids to do but our teens managed just fine. We would stay here again but would choose to be in a 50amp site if at all possible. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
In Whitefish close to super markets, shopping, indoor swimming, and attractions. Easy to bike downtown, along the river, to the pristine lake (many lakes in the area). Golf, skiing, more mountain bike trails than I've seen anywhere. Friendly management. Pretty, well designed park. Kept very clean. Friendly atmosphere among folks who come back year after year. Central location for trips to Glacier Park. Lots of events like music festivals, rodeos, car race track, pops festival, guitar festival, bike races, golf tournaments. Very popular location, and for a good reason. Consider yourself lucky if you get a reservation. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is the closest RV park to the beautiful town of Whitefish. It has lovely shaded sites with patches of grass. As stated before, some of the hookups are not conveniently located (there are quite long/deep sites with sewer hookup clear in the front, but with a little extra sewer hose, etc., this is not a problem and we appreciated the depth of the site as it provides extra room. We have a small 23' trailer and had no problem backing in...the roads are narrow, so I can imagine that a larger rig would require a little extra work. This little extra effort is worth it. The wifi was the absolute best of any park we have stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There is nice grass and shade. The park was difficult to maneuver. We had to ask two people to move their vehicles to back into our space. After we were parked in our space a motorcoach came in and the vehicles had to be moved again for him. He ended up complaining about the space and being moved. The only way he fit was to be pushed up against the bushes and the back. He had no place to park his toad. They moved him to a pull through space. The water connections were by the roads. Depending on whether you had a pull through or a back in they were all the way at the front or back. We had to use 30 feet of hose to connect to the water. The electric was all the way at the back. The sewer was toward the front and you had to dodge it when backing in. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice little park, hidden behind a low-budget motel (you check in at the motel desk). We got a pull-through site, but it was very tight getting in and out with our 38' MH with car on the dolly. Still, it was workable and the campground was worth it; very nice and clean, lots of trees, a real hidden Gem! We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is not aesthetically pleasing, but convenient to town. The restrooms and showers were very clean with a nice laundry too. The Manager was so unwelcoming it was hard to imagine. We would never stay here again because of this woman at the front desk. Surely there are more deserving people out there that need a job. I am certain a personnel change would increase their business. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were pleasantly surprised with this park. It was well laid-out, clean, quiet and conveniently located. Don't let the simple sign and commercial surroundings (at the street entrance) fool you into passing by this gem. The park is up behind the motel; tucked next to woods and away from street noise. There are a limited number of 50-amp sites and a few sites have no sewer. 14 pull-through sites, we stayed in #37, are a little tight to maneuver in or out of depending on the direction you enter. We found this park superior to the other national-chain campground listed for this town. Didn't try the wireless. Cable TV was good. A few permanent units seen on this visit. For meals try the Buffalo Cafe for an outstanding breakfast and the Rising Sun Bistro for a great lunch or dinner. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
