Hungry Horse, Montana

Mountain Meadow RV ParkOther reviewers at

August, 2016

The Lowe’s overall rating (based on value for the money,
quality of amenities and utilities, site suitability and what
we believe other RV’ers in our situation would be looking
for) = 8 out of 10 stars

The larger RV sites for motorhomes had quite good spacing
The smaller sites had better spacing than we’d seen at other parks recently
Nice lake at the front of the park for walking the dogs and kids
Bathrooms and showers were nice, and sparkling clean
Small laundry room, but clean and nice enough

Noise level and overall “feel” of the campground?
The campground had little traffic during the day, and we were
pleasantly surprised how quiet it was considering its proximity to
Glacier NP.  There was some traffic noise from the highway in front
of the park, and of course the level of noise depended on the
location within the park.

Road and site access?
Gravel interior roads and sites, and getting through the park was
difficult for larger rigs due to narrow and unlevel roads with sharp
urns.  Many sites were not level and needed plenty of lumber to get
straight.  There were back-in and pull-through sites in this
campground, and getting into sites was a challenge with larger RV’s.

Condition of sites?
Spacing between sites was good for the larger sites, and being
located in a forested area made for a pleasant stay.  Lots of shade,
and although we couldn’t get satellite reception we were happy with
our site (#29, a back-in).  It was tricky getting close to level, but the
site was plenty long to park the car in front of the RV and it was
fairly spacious.

Utilities offered and their quality?
The full hookup 50-amp power was strong, as was the water
pressure.  No cable here.  The utilities were conveniently located.
The park offered free WiFi, and it worked fairly well when we tried
it out.  The Verizon signal to our phones and hotspot worked well.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Both.  The table was small and not very substantial.  The fire pit
was nicely located and the office provided firewood at the site on
the day we arrived.  After that it was $5/bundle.

Bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
I checked out the restrooms near the office, and there was another
building in the middle of the park I did not evaluate.
Combinations are required to access the restrooms.  The one at
the office was very nice, with two large showers that had big
benches for the goodies – yay!  And they were sparkling clean.
The laundry room was small, consisting of 4 washers, 4 dryers
and a small folding counter.  Although small, it was clean as well.

Pet friendly?
There was a small fenced area for doggies, and a larger grassy
area right next to it.  The forested layout of the campground made
it a nice place to walk dogs.

Bicycle/walking trails nearby?
A paved path that ran across the front of the park, along the
highway.  It would be handy for folks wanting to ride bikes into
the small town just a mile or so away.

Groceries & other services nearby?
Hungry Horse is a small town, but the little market had enough
fruits and veggies to keep us happy during our stay.  Not much as
far as restaurants here.  The larger town of Columbia Falls was
only 6 miles west, and it had many more services and things to do.
Kalispell was the nearest large city for repairs and larger services,
about 23 miles from the campground.


The big one here was site access and driving the RV through the
park.  Quite difficult with sharp turns on unlevel roads and some
tree branches to look out for.  Glad we only had to do this when
coming and going to the site with the RV.

Many good things here.  Quiet, good site spacing for the larger
sites, great tree cover and shade, and fairly convenient to the
west park entrance (about 10 miles).  Be aware that some of the
smaller sites were not as generously spaced as the large ones.
Good utilities.  Friendly people at the office and working in the
