Date of Stay: September 1 and 2, 2010.
Weather During Stay: Pleasant summer weather, sunny and breezy with a nighttime low in the 50‘s.
Site Description: Around 60 sites are situated in this roomy park, a mix of FHU, electric only, and seasonal sites. Several sites are very long pull throughs. Roads are paved, sites are graveled and very level.
We were in site 47, a very long pull through that was easy to access without unhooking our Jeep. As did all the sites, ours had a picnic table. Some trees are scattered throughout the park, mostly on the perimeter, but few sites are shaded.
Outbuildings and a few old mobile homes are scattered around. An onsite laundry room shares the building with the restrooms and has a rack of tourist information. Our host told us there is an ice cream social each night at 7 pm.
Rate: We paid $67.40 for two nights, which included a Good Sam Discount and tax - close to $34/night for 50 amp FHU.
Phone/radio/TV: Very strong Verizon signal for phones and aircard. No obstacles blocked our roof-mounted satellite TV. 40+ channels are available on cable TV. Local NPR on 91.7.
Elevation/landscape/terrain: Located at 3,000 ft., this is classic western landscape: dry, scrubby, silvery trees, expansive views in all directions. Lighting/noise: Our site was reasonably dark and very quiet at night.
Favorite Sites: We liked our site (47), a long pull through that faced east - very welcome when the sun shone in our big front window on a cold morning. Site 45 and 43 were equally nice. Most sites looked spacious and level.
Hiking/Walking: We did our hiking at Little Bighorn Battlefield, 15 miles east.
Comments: We wanted to spend a day at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, and this campground served us well. We would stay again if we wanted to spend time in the area. The little town of Hardin has an IGA for groceries.
