Beautiful views of the other mountains and the Bitterroot Valley. There were clean bathrooms on site and an RV outlet with the Stargazer Pad. Donald was an on-site helpful host and very flexible with times.

Beautiful views of the mtns and Bitteroot Valley. Plus an electrical RV hook up was a bonus! There are clean bathrooms on site as well. Donald was very nice and onsite for any help or questions.

Don and Christina were wonderful hosts. They greeted us upon arrival and had an amazing set up on their beautiful property! The Stargazer RV Pad had power and bathrooms. The sky at night is amazing. We originally only planned to stay one night but booked a second to stay longer. While there we drove by Chief Joseph Ranch and snapped some pictures of where they are in process of filming the mini series Yellowstone just outside of Darby and also drove a couple hours to the abandon ghost town of Bannack to tour the remaining buildings of the once thriving gold rush town in the mid 1800s. I wasn’t sure how our 8, 6 and 5 year old kids would do but they loved it. We have been on vacation for a week now and have stayed in 4 different campsites and we all agreed that this was one of our favorites.

Little Smith Creek Ranch is the quintessential Hipcamp spot! The setting is stunning, the ranch is peaceful and quiet, and Donald is a friendly and welcoming host. I would definitely stop here again if I pass through Victor again.

Incredible spot. The panoramic views are awesome and Donald and his wife are amazing hosts. Couldn’t have been a more perfect spot to spend the night. One of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen. We will definitely be back!

Our dogs loved this site. They had more things to smell and explore than hours in the day! While they enjoyed finding sticks in the creeks that meandered through and near the property, their humans enjoyed the beautiful views of the mountains and valley. There were deer that hung out nearby and cows in the neighboring field. Although there were other guests on the property, we had plenty of space and never ran into those guests. The hosts were quick to respond when we wanted to fill up our water tank before parking on the pad. There was an electrical outlet at the back of the site but we had to fill up water a short distance away. There was garbage and recycling close to the site.
They have built the nicest outhouse right by the site. It had 2 pit toilets and an outdoor sink with running (not potable) water with soap. I never saw the other guests using it but there is a glamping tent across the field from us. They would need to walk right by our camper to use it.
We did not expect to be right next to a huge event tent set up for weddings. We were assured that they would not rent our site if there was an event!
There wasn’t a picnic table or fire pit at the site. We asked for a fire pit and they had one that was easily moved to our site. Dry firewood was available a short distance from the site. We loved to space we had to enjoy nature. Despite having others on the property at the same time, we (and the dogs) were given space and freedom to explore.

On the left is the glamping tent for rent.  The stargazer pad is just to the left of the large white event tent.  The outhouse is between the pad and the event tent.Most Amazing Outhouse!  Unique remnants of an old log cabin Deer wandered the property daily

Very quiet with great views. I pulled my RV in late at night. Parked on a level pad. Plugged in and was set up in no time.
