Walter provided a beautiful campsite equip with firewood, a gorgeous view, and a perfect place to pitch a tent. By far the best HipCamp site we have stayed at. Could not recommend this site enough.

The camp site was as advertised. Great directions. The camp area is spacious with great shade. Potable water from a spigot, so you don’t have to bring a heavy jug. There was a clean portable toilet/ outhouse at the parking area which is about 50 paces up hill from the picnic table and fire ring. I am 57 years old and was able to easily make it up and down the trail in my janky flip flops. We loved being so close to the river. Walter left us to our own adventure, but he was working on his construction projects on his place and was available if we needed him. It was a terrific camp space about 20 -30 minutes drive time from downtown Missoula through beautiful rolling hills. Walter had cut wood and fire starter on hand as well as tubes to float the river if you were so inclined. There was enough greenery around to keep dust down.

Campsite is a 100% cross between a category 4 Florida hurricane and the Hills Have Eyes. Campsite is nice, except it is adjacent to a large junkyard and 2 dilapidated homes. Walter, the proprietor, does not represent his campsite accurately. It is a canoe-only accessible site, not accessible from the road or by truck. You’d have to hump your gear up and down a 30 foot steeply inclined riverbank. I’m a disabled veteran, no way could I get my stuff up and down that riverbank. Walter, who looks like he lives outside and was mostly naked when he came up to us, refused to refund my money (we had reserved the site :45 minutes earlier). He doubled down on my kids who were grossed out by his nakedness and the utterly awful condition of his property. Campers beware. Sgt. Veit, USMC

Willow point is on the shore of the river, a great place to camp and relax. Felt very similar to being at a state park campground walk-in campsite- without other sites around. The sunset view was a highlight. Walter is a great host, we had everything we needed.
