Campground Review: Choteau City Campground, Choteau, Montana
Why we chose here: We wanted to get an early start to get to a First Come First Served campground in Glacier National Park. Instead of getting up super early from our previous stop and breaking our 250 miles rule, we stopped overnight here to launch the next morning.
Location: Choteau is a small town on the way to the Eastern entrances of Glacier National Park. From what we could see the town is pretty un-noteworthy but was a great spot for an overnight stay. It is about a 90 minute drive to East Glacier from here.
Sites: There are several ill-defined campsite. Some are in better shape than others, some are totally overgrown. The firepits and picnic tables were in pretty sorry states.
Facilities: Toilets, dump station, water trash and some recycling. We didn't try the restrooms but judging by the state of the rest of the campground I am not sure I would have wanted to.
Groceries: There was a small grocery store that was closed when we were there.
Reservations: No - FCFS only. There is a 3 day stay limit.
Cell Coverage / WiFi: We had great Verizon and AT&T coverage here.
Price Paid: $8
Date of visit: July 2015
Would we come here again? No, good for an overnight spot, but no reason to come here other than to sleep and get some cell coverage.
Other: This campground was pretty dilapidated. It is right in town and it served our needs. But honestly the whole place needs some TLC.
