8/6/2020 9:59:09 AM Missouri River Headwaters State Park by Larry Piette
review rating - 1 to 5 stars paved bike trail - When it was first paved it was very smooth. Since then, no maintenance has allowed hundreds of cracks that tax a bicycles structure not to mention the riders wrist, shoulders and seat. Is there a maintenance fund to contribute to for the restoration of such a potentially great bike path. I am a weekly user from Bozeman. Thank you
8/14/2016 12:54:43 PM Wayfarers State Park by B. Timms
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Great views and amenities - Killer sunset views from the rock slab cliffs and the shoreline. The town of Bigfork lights up the bays and the lake at night. Beautiful. The campground is busy during the height of the season, but quiets down very quickly when day users leave and children go to bed. Nighttime is quiet with campfires flickering through the foliage curtains. A walk along the shoreline at night is magical. Very dog friendly with leash ordinances in the campground but opportunities for off leash roaming if you want to hike in the undeveloped portion of the park.

review rating - 1 to 5 stars - We were anxious to see this area of the battlefield, and gladly paid our $6, but as we drove up into the park, there was no guidance, no signs, no information at all. What a disappointment!

review rating - 1 to 5 stars This park was locked with private signs! - Was very disappointed to see this is marked as private property and was locked tight with no trespassing signs. How can that be when it is listed as a state park
3/13/2014 11:51:50 PM Medicine Rocks State Park by Susan Davis
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Great Rocks - Went out of my way to visit this park and glad I did. Not many people but lots of photogenic rocks. Plenty of camping spaces. Wandered around for hours and then chatted with park employee on the way out who recommended tasting the water from the pump at the entrance. It was delicious.

review rating - 1 to 5 stars out in middle of nowhere - Came upon this park by accident trying to take a shortcut to South Dakota. Stopped did leave money in the suggestion box and found the formations fascinating. More people should hear about this may even bring more traffic on this desolate highway.
7/24/2013 10:36:48 AM Spring Meadow Lake State Park by Alana
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Fun for Everyone - Spring medow lake is small but it has something for everyone to do. A fishing platform for Dad, a shallow pool for kids, and a nice beach for sunbathing.
11/20/2012 2:30:21 PM Black Sandy State Park by Campers in June From Nevada
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Our Favorite place to go for vacation - We love Black Sandy. Yes it get crowded but that is mostly the weekend crowd we go and we stay for two weeks at a time and the spot we go to is kinda up and out of the way so dont really bother anyone but we wouldnt go anywhere else Black Sandy is the best No complaints been there three times in a row hope to see you in June
6/12/2012 11:49:48 AM Black Sandy State Park
review rating - 1 to 5 stars Never again - Need more fire pits, we were suposed to share with the lot next to us.Every lot should have own pit. Too many FWP people picking at you the whole time.We thought we were very careful about liscences and permits and rules and they still found something to ticket us. Somebody came at night and stole gas cans.
review rating - 1 to 5 stars - beautiful pond....wonderful to walk around...clean and beautiful
review rating - 1 to 5 stars A haven for the Trumpeter Swans! - Wild marshland ideal for waterfowl breeding, though said birds are challenged by weather extremes during the season of raising their young.
