Big Sky RV Park & Campground

Big Sky RV & Campground offers a quiet place to go RV camping just outside the city of Anaconda. The park is on the way to Glacier, Yellowstone, and Little Bighorn National Monument. At one point in time, Anaconda was at the home of the Anaconda Copper Mining Company of Butte. Smelting continued here for almost 100 years until it ceased in 1980. When you book an RV in Deer Lodge County and camp at Big Sky RV and Campground, you'll have easy access to the area's attractions.Big Sky RV & Campground offers a total of 18 full hookup sites for motorhome camping. Each site features a gravel pad and grassy area. There are 12 pull-through and six back-in sites, all of which have 30/50 amp service, free cable TV, and phone hookups. There's plenty of space for your RV rental, with sites up to 45 feet long that can accommodate slide-outs. The park offers free WiFi for those who feel the need to stay connected with the world. There are horseshoe pits, a place to take your dog for a little playtime, and plenty of hot water in the showers.Big Sky RV Park & Campground is within walking distance of downtown Anaconda, where you will find lots of places to dine and shop. Across the road, there is a small creek to fish in or splash around in (if you can stand the ice-cold water). The town also boasts a golf course and more. Interstate 90 is only a short drive to the east, or hop on Highway 1 heading west in your rental RV, and you can quickly reach Philipsburg where you can take the short but steep drive to Granite Ghost Town State Park. The town tells the story of the boom and bust of silver mining in Montana.

The Great Outdoors

Anaconda is only a short 14-mile drive from Georgetown Lake. If you are going to take the drive, be sure you bring your fly rods and a handful of your favorite flies. The rainbow and brook trout here are plentiful, as are the Kokanee salmon. If you bring your campervan rental here during the winter months, the ice fishing is rated as among the best in the state. You can even spend the night camping in Philipsburg Bay Campground, a rustic 69-site slice of heaven. It’s the perfect place to park your rental RV to go boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.At Anaconda Smelter Stack State Park, you can still see the giant Anaconda Copper Company Smelter Stack built in 1919. The stack is known as one of the "tallest free-standing brick structures" in the world. It measures 75 feet in diameter at the base, 60 feet in diameter at the top, and stands 585 feet tall (The Washington Monument, by comparison, is only 555 feet tall). While the smelter might have closed down in 1980, the park has displays covering the history of the smelter.Nearby Lost Creek State Park is the perfect place to visit for those who like to hike. It's only a short hike to Lost Creek Falls that drop 50 feet as they cascade over rocky outcroppings into Lost Creek. For those who prefer a longer hike, there is a Forest Service trail that runs for several miles along the creek offering spectacular views of meadows and forests along the way. The park offers campsites for rental RVs that are 23 feet long or less.

Exploring the City

Anaconda is the nearest city when you rent an RV near the Big Sky RV & Campground. It's so close that you can walk to the downtown area in about ten minutes. The town has plenty to keep your family busy. Start by spending the day at the Copper Village Museum & Art Center. The museum is located in the old City Hall Building, built in 1896 and now on the National Register of Historic Places. Along with a historical museum dedicated to preserving the area's history, there are archives to browse and a retail shop for souvenirs.Take a tour of the area on a historic bus when you join one of Anaconda's bus tours. Your journey will take you through the town's historic business district and numerous parks. The bus stops at the Copper Smelter Smokestack Interpretive Center, St Peter's Church, the Washoe Theater, the first fish hatchery in the state, and the Deer Lodge County Courthouse. Your tour guides will regale you with stories about the town, the copper smelting industry, and keep the smiles going throughout the tour's duration.Built in 1931 following the fire that destroyed the Sundial Theater, the Washoe Theater is worth visiting while you're renting an RV near Anaconda. Designed by B. Marcus Priteca and now on the National Register of Historic Places, the theater is awash in murals and ornamentation created out of copper, silver, and gold. In the projection booth stands the three original Super Simplex projectors. One of these projectors still uses a carbon arc lamphouse still being used to run movie previews. If you want to catch a movie here while RV camping at Big Sky RV & Campground, you'll find the latest movies being shown every week for your entertainment.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
