Nothing much noteworthy about this Famcamp; paved interior roads with sloping concrete pads, reasonable large sites, no trees for shade. There aren't many choices in Great Falls, so after driving six miles through heavy city traffic we felt fortunate to get a site, but not accepting reservations in this out of the way location is insane. Drive all the way, find out there are no spaces, then figure out how to get past the gate barriers in a 40' to get to the annex. Or drive all the way back to the interstate. We stopped here to make a commissary trip since there's little to see in town, but it wasn't worth the effort. WiFi didn't work, no cable, and just a few OTA channels. Nice hosts, but I wouldn't want to be in their shoes having to turn people away. Next time we'll shop at Walmart and skip this place.
K.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Very disappointed in the look of the place and the price increase (25%). Have stayed here many times over several years. There used to be lush green grass between sites where picnic tables and bbq's are located. This year there is brown/dead grass and plenty of weeds. A young man (not the host) is mowing the weeds today. His work is not improving the look of the place. One would think that with that big of an increase in price from one year to the next that there would not be a commensurate decrease in livability. Laundry and bathrooms are still very clean and laundry is reasonably priced. In previous years I would have rated this place 4 or 5 across the board. With the price increase and the unwelcoming look of the grounds it ranks much lower. In the past the lack of mature trees was compensated by the lush grass which made sitting out in the evenings very pleasant once the sun had dropped. That is no longer the case.
This is the second year in a row that we've found the Gateway FamCamp completely occupied and according to all reports there are no "rules" enforcing a time limit for occupancy. Also, it's apparently very common for the camp hostess to be "unavailable" and she also doesn't mark nor advertise which space she's in. Don't expect her to be in #1, and the guy there is cranky if you knock on his door. The MWR people on post need to get a grip on the stay-over's here. We no longer even attempt to get into Gateway but just drive on post to the old Annex where the hosts are wonderful and there's almost always a spot available, 30 Amps or not.
