On this site on the shore of Little Red Deer River an English settler named Mr. Crichley had a craftsman build him a large log home. The logs were painted red, thus Red Lodge became the name of his ranch and later, the name of this park.

Nice private sites with lots of trees. Nice trails along river with people fishing. Nice central playground. Fun interpretive backpacks from the staff. Easy geocache in area. Wish there was a flush toilet and place to wash dishes.

Yes, the river is right beside the campground. It is slow moving and shallow. There are paths throughout the campground you can walk very easily to the river access area.

There is a water station in the C loop you can pull your RV up to hook up and add water. Or if you get a spot close by you can run a long hose to the water faucet and fill. We did that in the C loop. I do not know if the... More
