07.31.15 Conestoga Campground, White Sulphur Springs,Montana

20150729_200024Friday, July 31, 2015  – We really like Conestoga Campground for several reasons.  A little is that we have all the water and electricity we want here after boondocking for 10 days.

Second is that there are other RVillagers here, and RVillagers are always good people!

Next, this is a lovely park (with real grass) and nice people running it.

Last is that there is a good bit to do in this area.

When we made our reservations here for two weeks all I thought was well 20150728_170625we’ll get a lot of rest since there didn’t appear to be too much here so far away from mountains.  But we really are still in the mountains and I was really wrong about things to do.  Conestoga Campground (a Coast to Coast resort) is  nestled in the Smith River Valley of the Rocky Mountains surrounded by the Big Belt, Little Belt and Castle Mountain.  They have 47 sites – All pull through (Big Rig Friendly) – 33 full hook-ups, 14 water & electric. They also have nice grassy sites for tents and bikers, though there are none here right now.

20150728_165635Gordon & Sally Stewart own the campground and are actively involved in it.  Gordon created all of the silhouette pictures that we see along the fence line.  It is a very neat and clean park, very well maintained.   Wednesday evening, we enjoyed delicious local ice cream at a social they have every Wednesday and Saturday.  Gordon gave a brief talk about things to see in the area.  Very helpful information.

The campground has a store with lots of local things for sale.  Huckleberries are the big there and there are20150728_170300 huckleberry everything (chocolate bars, cocoa, coffee, candy sticks, syrup, jam, soda, etc.) for sale.  I am learning about where they grow wild so maybe we can pick our own.

In the office they also have a brochure rack with lots of information about places to see in the area.  They have a book exchange and a video check out service.  Their camp hosts rotate their days working and there is always a smiling face at the front counter!

20150729_205905 20150729_205914We’re going to visit a Hutterite Colony (they are similar to Amish) nearby tomorrow and tour a local Castle!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
