Need Park Advice in Missoula, Montana

Hi. We're take a long weekend trip to Missoula, Montana at the end of September for an Aikido conference. Our coach is a 41' DP with toad. We want a nice pull through site with trees. Good WIFI is a must.

Since we want to stay close to the town, the two options I see are the Jim & Mary's RV Park (Home) and the Missoula KOA (Missoula KOA | Camping in Montana | KOA Campgrounds). The KOA is closer to downtown Missoula. Both seem to get fairly high ratings and are similarly priced. Since kids will be back in school, we're hoping that both will be fairly quiet.

Has anyone had experience with either of these campgrounds? Which do you like better? Why? Any key downsides? Any other campgrounds around Missoula you like better?

Thanks for any advice.

Best regards,

Dan.

We stayed at the KOA this summer and found it very nice.
Had a nice pool, putt putt golf, level sites and REALLY close to town.

I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Hope that helps...

TMan,

Thanks for the feedback. We're going to reserve in a Missoula KOA campsite tonight.

Regards,

Dan.

Hi Dan,

I haven't stayed at the KOA.

I have stayed a couple of times at Jim & Mary's. It's a nice place. Easy in and out with a 41' motorhome towing.

You might want to check this site: Missoula (Montana ) - Campground Reviews - RV Park Reviews

Take care,
Stu

We've stayed at Jim & Mary's, a very pleasant, well-kept park and good for a big rig.

Don't know about the WiFi, but this is one of the nicest KOA's I've been in. Pet friendly, too. They have two dog parks. If you're traveling west, there is a nice park at St. Regis called Nugget RV Park.

Dan, while in Missoula and if you are in the mood to experience the local hospitality and a cold frosty beverage, You can't pass up Red's Bar, "Home of Dead Pecker Row". Here's a link to their website.

Red's Bar: Missoula

Back in 2009 our son was a member of the Appalachian State University Football Team. ASU played a FCS semi-finals game at Montana. Final Score was Montana 24 ASU 17, I think. Absolutely the coldest, I've ever been. But the Montana fans and specifically the members of "Dead Pecker Row" at Red's were super hospitable. If you make to Red's check out their extensive football helmet collection. The DW & I donated the App State Mountaineers helmet to Red's in appreciation to them for their hospitality. Great Folks!

Lol!! I had to chuckle at the cold statement. That's why I'm FROM Montana. Wife bought a snow shovel last year and put it in MY garage.. Thought I was going have to divorce her...

There is also a big brewery that sells their beer nationally there, called Big Sky brewery, not more than a couple miles from the KOA, and they have tours and tastings, etc. There used to be a Saloon called Duelin Daltons saloon, but I don't think they're there anymore. College town, places come and go. The DW might appreciate 4 Ravens Art Gallery on Higgins.
