While in Montana, Barry wanted to check out the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, so we chose to stay in a commercial RV park to be within biking distance. We stayed at 7th Ranch RV Camp, which was convenient to both the interstate and the monument and a very nice RV park indeed. It was pricier than our usual stops, even with the 10% Good Sam discount, but worth it for the convenience and amenities offered. The park does not have a dump station, so we opted for a full hookup site, which ran us $39.20/night.
The park office is surrounded by beautiful flowers including huge desert hibiscus, and the staff couldn't be friendlier. There's a small book exchange inside, which I took advantage of, and plenty of area brochures. An especially nice touch is the ice cream bar or sandwich you are given upon check-in. Yum!
The park has the most immaculate rest rooms I've ever seen, with nice showers, which we didn't use but checked out. There is also a small laundry room, which we did use. Only two washers and dryers ($2 each) that worked well and were super clean, like the rest of the park.
We really liked our site on the end of the last row. And during our stay, despite the park being close to full, we did not have a rig right next to us, which certainly increased our feeling of space. We especially enjoyed the gorgeous view to the west from our site, unobscured by other rigs.
We were so lucky to get to see this stunning sunset and gorgeous full moon during our two-night stay. Double score!
The ride to the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument worked out well, so this turned out to be an excellent stop for us. In our next post we'll share our photos from the monument, so stay tuned!
