Bozeman, Montana

We stayed in Sunrise Campground -- it is a typical private campground, but the owners are accommodating, pleasant, and the place is very well cared for. Laundry and showers are good -- plentiful hot water, places to put soap, shampoo, towels, etc. It was convenient to downtown -- you could practically (but not quite) walk. If train or highway noises bother you, this would not be your place, but we were fine with it. We stayed here because of the wedding we were attending --

And if you go to Bozeman, try out Norris Hot Springs -- abouat 40 minutes away. Outdoors, clean, unchlorinated natural hot springs -- lots of atmosphere but I think weekend evenings get a little crowded.

Being new to camping and all that, what exactly is meant by "typical private campground"? As opposed to what? Thanks

To me that means is more of a parking lot type setup, as opposed to nice sites carved out of a forest. Usually does not have a place of natural beauty right by them, as most provincial/state/national parks do.

That said, they usually have good facilities.

Lots of differences in them though.

A private campground is a place where you have to duck to walk between trailers or you'll smack your head on the slide-outs.

Kinda like a Filet Mignon nestled between two ten pound tubes of 73% Hamburger. That's how I felt on the beachfront campground at Grand Haven MI last fall and that was even a state park facility. We like corps of engineers facilities, bureau of land reclamation and U.S. Forest service sites most of the time.

Ignoring what is along side of you, I would say the view out your back window looks pretty good. Loren
