Jun 14, 2019 - Reed Point, Montana

We stopped at the "Old West RV Park" in Reed Point, Montana for the night. The host, Carol, greeted us with a big smile and got us checked in. The park was right off I-90 and near a RR track so we had road and train noise all night. Later that night we had more thunder, lightening, and of course more rain. We just can't get away from it. Tomorrow we head for St. Regis, Montana for another overnight stay.

Aug 25, 2012 - computer trouble

Well if we hadn't had enough things break or wear out my computer crapped out this morning if you know me you know I am addicted to my computer. We had to stop at Sam's club to get me something for my addiction. I ended up getting a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. I guess it will be ok once I get use to it. The real problem is I don't know how to load pictures on it. Anyway after we got that done we drove 130 miles to Reed Point to Old West RV park. It is a small camp ground but really nice people run it. We did call ahead and it was a good thing we...

Don't wake me up

Jul 19, 2012 - Old West RV at Reed Point, MT

We drove 105 miles today to this campground for two nights. This is an old western town with population of 96. Little or not, we loved this town. It was 101 the day we arrived. Friday started out at 70 and cloudy, it is supposed to be in mid 90’s Saturday.

Aug 14, 2011 - Week at Reed Point

Sunday: We packed up and were out of the campground by 10:55. Well, check out time was 11 and we had a whole 77 miles to go. Reed Point is a very small town with a sawmill, a gas station/general store/RV park office, a church and a couple schools. The rest of the town is made up of a few houses and a lot of single wides. It is, for the most part, well kept up but kinda sad looking. At one time there was a Montana Hotel here. It was a grand old hotel that was in the process of being restored and they even made a documentary of how people had...

Summer 2011 Travels

Jul 6, 2011 - Operator Error

Going through Wyoming has been like a roller coaster all day long. Up one hill and down the next. And a rough road on top of that. It feels good to finally stop, at least I think so. This campground was close to a lake so we thought it wouldn’t be too bad, but it leaves a little to be desired. We are a ways from town, no trees, hot, and the water, electric and sewer are all located at the front of the site, instead of on the side or in the back. Our 30’ electric cable won’t reach. And the site they gave us already has someone in it. It’s...

C & C's Adventures

Jul 5, 2011 - Down day in Reed Point, MT

I thought I would try adding a clip and see if it worked. It did! Another bit of interesting information is that we are staying in Reed Point tonight so we can see Tom and Linda (my brother and wife). We talked to them yesterday and found out they were coming here so we decided to wait on them. Also, we saw a first for us here. They were a Mennonite couple in a big RV. We've never before encountered them in our RVing adventures. Jim talked to them and they were very friendly.

HUNDLEYS TO ALASKA

Jul 4, 2011 - WY TO MT

Hello everyone. We had another great day today. WY and MT are such beautiful states. The rivers up here are mostly full and many are out of their banks. We saw lots of antelopes, came up on two large deer crossing the highway and had to slow down to let them cross, a number of turkeys along the road, Canadian geese, large hawks in nest on top of a light pole, an owl, and a large animal off in the distance, that we couldn't decide if it was a coyote or wolf. The mountains were covered with yellow flowers and were beautiful....

HUNDLEYS TO ALASKA

Sep 17, 2008 - Reed Point, MT

Stayed in a cute, tiny park called Old West RV Park. It was a Passport America park costing us $17.10. The wifi only supported Windows so we were on our Sprint card. The proprietor had gone to some trouble to add flowers, yard decorations and old west memorabilia making something out of nothing. Recommended by our blog friend Froggie (Donna & Stu). Nice little find.

Fall 2008

Aug 28, 2008 - Reed Point,Montana

AUGUST 28th We arrived in Reed Point,stopped at a P.A, we've been lucky and have managed to stay at P.A campground for the most part in the States. At times the discount didn't apply but we were given 10%. This is a small campground but one of the cleanest we have been to in a long time. A young couple run it and the mean to please in all way,she even asked if we were P.A. members for we would save50%, that was unusual,for some would rather not honor the PA membership. Our drive today was a little more boring,gone are the large crops and...

Apr 26, 2008 - Reed Point

Just an overnight stop. Nice place if a bit of a one horse town! Relaxed, all had showers and then went to the local saloon for dinner. Weren't quite sure what it would be like but it was wonderful. Great local place and the food was great and cheap!!! Played dominoes and then another early night that we were all ready for. Mind you, early night was 11.30pm so early for us but late for mum and Peter. Off to Buffalo next...

Jun 30, 2007 - Reed Point, MT

It was very hot in Rapid City while we were there, with temperatures in the high nineties. So as soon as Butch's eye doctor gave the okay, we headed west toward the coasts of Washington and Oregon, where the temperature never goes above 75 degrees. On our way, we stopped at a little hamlet in Montana called Reed Point, population 96.(On maps it is Reed Point; on their sign it is Reedpoint.) In an area where there are more sheep than people and few services, Reed Point's gas station was the engine that drove its economy. People would stop...
