  • Not private sites but lovely spots right on the lake so we didnt mind. Watch the fish jumping or go kayaking. No showers so fill up with water if staying a while. Extremely clean bathrooms and only power at the sites. Would stay again for a few days. Nice and close to Helena and easy to get to. It was quiet and well looked after.
  • Nice location. Only 6 tent sites, mostly setup for RV. Clean area. Staff maintains it well. At the time not very good fishing didn't catch anything from shore. Might want to take a boat. Lots of water craft on the lake.
