Our RV Blog Review Of Rexford Bench Campground Montana

If you look for campgrounds that are affordable, yet not too hard on the rv, you will love Rexford Bench Campground. Montana has some of the most gorgeous parks in the national forest, and this is just one of those. I’m going to show you it through pictures and more details then you will likely find on the MT camping sites. If you’re like us, you really want a feel for a place before you make the trek to your campsite…so hope this helps!

The campground is in Rexford, MT. If driving on 37, you’d almost miss the turn off for the TOWN, let alone the campground…you can’t see the town from the highway at all. But when you make that right turn, you will turn right again rather quickly to head into this beautiful camping area.

Let me start by saying that though this site is very recreational vehicle friendly and can handle a 40 foot rv (wide, paved and level sites that even have a parking space for your vehicle), there are no electric hookups. Also, though there are flush toilets and plenty of water spigots around, there are also no showers. There is potable water and a dump station before you enter the campground, so be sure to fill up your water before you choose a campsite!

The campground rules don’t address generator use (with exception of quiet time after 10pm) but do keep in mind this is beautiful Big Sky country…no one wants to listen to generators running around the clock…and we are full time rvers, but WE don’t want the peace interrupted, either! The city of Eureka, MT, only about 5 miles away, has an rv campground with electricity if you can’t do without it.

Before jumping into the photos, I will say that there is so much you can do on foot or by car. Hiking trails, boating and fishing, a beach for swimming on Lake Koocanusa. It is only $12/night for all of this serenity. Plus, the town of Rexford has a cafe and restaurant/bar, with laundry and other necessities you might need.

So here are pics and info concerning Rexford Bench Campground…be sure to read my captions in the images, which offer more detailed information on some of the images:

The town and campground are on Lake Koocanusa. It’s a 90 mile long reservoir, extending into Canada and ending at the stunning Libby Dam. It was named for the Kootenai River, Canada and the USA. Hint: put those bold letters together and it spells its name. A drive you cannot miss is to take the scenic 37 from Rexford to the Libby Dam (about an hour drive one way) and bring a camera! I used to “have” to drive it weekly to my home office in Libby…such torture that was!
