About
Unwrap the splendor of Big Sky Country as you set up your home away from home in the heart of Helena, Montana. Here, RV camping transcends the ordinary, enveloped by the breathtaking embrace of 360-degree mountain panoramas. Indulge in an intimate connection with nature, mingling with an endearing assembly of goats, sheep, mini horses, and donkeys in a charming petting zoo. Stroll leisurely down quaint country lanes or venture onto 10 acres of pristine grounds, where the regal strut of peacocks and their calls punctuate the tranquil ambiance. As the sun dips behind the majestic peaks, gather around crackling fire pits to share stories or simply bask in the serene valley and mountain vistas. Younger explorers will revel in the expansive 40'x60' playground, unleashing their imaginations and energies in a space crafted just for them. Meanwhile, the 60'x100' tipi lodge park beckons as a unique venue for dining and recreation, adding a touch of cultural heritage to your experience (available seasonally). Montana's moniker as "The Last Best Place" rings true here, where the grandeur of nature meets the comforts of RV camping, creating an unforgettable retreat into the wilds of the American Northwest. Come and savor the purity of Montana's outdoors as it was meant to be enjoyed.

Suitability
Pets Allowed
Pets must remain in your camper at all times unless leashed and accompanied by owner. Pets can be walked outside the main red entry gates and down the county road off property. Pets are not allowed to be walked inside the main red entry gates due to grazing livestock and free-roaming peacocks and chickens. The presence of unfamiliar pets are perceived as potential threats by livestock - pets can bark, lunge and chase - stressing out and jeopardizing the health and safety of our animals. You must clean up after your pets with proper waste bags and put the waste in the trash bins by the road. Do not put pet waste in the park trash as it is unpleasant for those picnicking in that designated area.
Water Hookup Available
Generators Allowed
Please turn off generators at 10pm out of consideration for livestock and other RVrs. :)
Wifi
Hookup Notes
We do not have a fancy water ‘hookup’ but you can use our hose /spigot at the barn to fill up your water tank if needed! :)

House Rules
Please do not expect ‘special sessions’ at your convenience for the petting zoo. We have work schedules and lives and the animals cannot be fed treats all day- it is unhealthy for them. Feeding time for the petting experience zoo is 7pm. If you miss this time - that’s it. :) the animals will be free roaming many times around your RVs in Sites #2 & 3 - you can gently pet them! If you do not like animals at your RV door - choose Site #1 outside the entry gate. :) Do not enter the barn, animal enclosures or petting zoo areas without our accompaniment. Do not feed the animals outside food Do not try to chase or ride the petting zoo animals Do not approach the main yellow houses or knock on our doors as we prefer to keep personal privacy away from RV camp areas. Call or text to communicate. Do not bother other RVrs by knocking on their RV doors or other disturbances Do not dump any grey water or other substances anywhere on the property! No alcohol, marijuana, cigarette or vape smoking allowed- or you will be required to leave the property immediately Do not pick the fruit or other vegetables in the gardens or off of the trees. This is our private food source. If you bring it- take it. Our trash bins are not dumpsters. Do not fill them with your personal trash. The handicapped accessible port-a-potty is professionally maintained weekly. Please feel free to use- but do not put anything down the toilet except toilet paper. Keep it clean. We are just a family that has to clean up your mess- so be considerate. Do not ‘hide’ in the stall to smoke- like highschool- it has happened. :) If you use firewood in the gazebo pit- please donate $3 in the red donation box. Wood is not free. Thank you!
