FWIW, other than the "big rig" questions, the one in Havre is not bad. It's convenient, has a laundromat, and seemed well kept when we were there a few years ago. Wasn't much else there at the time!

I just looked real quick at Harve RV Park ( assuming that's the one ) and they DO NOT advertise Big Rig Friendly..


You assumed correctly.

Is it required to advertise That?


well,

When a campground does NOT have Big Rig Friendly checked off, that USUALLY means that it is a smaller campground, or has narrow access roads, or smaller sites, or all the above....

Now on the other hand, It is a shame that the Woodalls Big Book did not tell it was NOT Big Rig Friendly..

It appears the poster is not happy with Harve RV and is trying to throw business elsewhere. Pictures of the "other" RV park appear to show a dirt/mud parking field that can handle big rigs. It seems it is a few miles out of town and very quiet. It all depends what you want. Some people don't drive big rigs and don't have a towed. They are willing to have tighter spots with some noise for the convenience of being able to walk to the store, casino, movie. If he is trying to warn big rigs about the tightness of this park then mentioning another and extolling it's virtues isn't necessary. By the way you state 5 miles out of town and their own website states 10 miles out of town.

I'm at a loss as to what the complaint the OP has with the CG. The gas station and the CG share the same entry off the main drag thru town. Their web site is a single page that lists nothing regarding site size or even full or partial hookups. A simple satellite view of the park easily shows exactly what the CG looks like and it's pretty easy to tell this is a work camping or overnight quick stop type of place. Not sure which is noisier, the railroad switching yard and turn table or the highway?

If there's a problem it seems it's with Woodall's and not the CG. Knowing that Camping World Holdings, Inc owns the name and production rights to the Woodall's name my suspicions are not with the CG.

MOD'S NOTE: I edited the topic title, because "Big rigs beware" was too vague.

We came through the area about a month ago and stayed in Evergreen RV park. Can handle big rigs. About 2 miles from town not much road noise.

Read the Woodall's big book!
There is no warning to give anyone an idea that you can't get a Class A thru their camp grounds.

There is nothing, we use the big book because their isn't must cell service out here.

Reservations, LOL Remember it is Oct. We have noticed that every campground we've passed is empty, some are even closed for the winter.
Or Buy a NEW Book!! Woodalls hasn't published a book for several years. Complaining about the accuracy of an outdated book sounds a lot like whining.

Cool pic! We were on the row next to the RR yard. Didn't know what was back there at the time. IIRC there is a big wall separating. Couldn't hear much over our A/C.

What ever yo like, but when you are dependent upon what you can see from the road, there is nothing like what you'd like to see to warn you of whats to come.
Maybe you like to walk into a trap where you must unhook, I don't.

That picture provides a different take on the term "the wrong side of the tracks".

Can you even run an awning out without it slamming into the trailer on the next site?

The junkyard on the other side of the highway is a nice compliment to the railyard. Industrial camping at it's finest and would make a Walmart parking lot seem like a National park.
