Alhambra RV Park in Clancy, MT sits on the site on a historic sanitariums and hot springs.  In the early 1900’s, people seeking rest and isolation arrived by the Great Northern Railroad at Alhambra station to visit the Alhambra or Sunnyside Sanatoriums.  For many years, visitors relaxed in the natural setting, enjoyed the pools, and felt refreshed by the mineral waters which was packaged and shipped all over the world until 1959 when fire destroyed the facilities.

 

Today, Clancy continues as a small community just 10 miles south of the state capital, Helena. Alhambra RV Park is conveniently located just off Interstate I-15 and exit 182. We offer sites placed around the Prickly Pear stream with a serene setting, fishing, and a calm relaxing stay on your journey through Montana.

 

The park features amenities such as: electricity, fire pits, picnic tables, dump station, pull through sites, propane refills and clean restrooms. Try your hand at fishing, golfing or hiking while you’re here!

You can also take advantage of the numerous great attractions just beyond the campground, including the Lewis & Clark County Fairgrounds, and the area’s mix of excellent local eateries and pubs. Enjoy the beauty of the Elkhorn Mountains at the Alhambra RV Park. Hope to see you soon!

Nice little campground off the beaten path in MT. Had to use the Navi, to make sure we were in the right place! Nice quiet spot in the back of the park in the shade. The bridge in the back of the park is super noisy, but safe...

Simply a place to stay for 1 night while keeping trailer attached to truck. If you have no expectations, you will be fine. Highway noise is predominant, although creek is pretty. Owner is matter-of-fact with both information and attitude.

Great campground as far as natural beauty is concerned. Everything else kind of sucked. I reserved a full service site. Thought that included water, sewer, and electrical. I had water and electrical. No sewer hookups. Have to use their little portable transfer tanks. Owner got mad at me for topping off my fresh water tank. Said his well may run dry. Public restroom/shower was just a dirty bathroom off the laundry room. Bathroom trash was not picked up in the week we were there. Overflowing. Appears to be a lot of full timers there. They also seemed to get most of the services there…. We will not be staying there again. Many nicer, better choices in that area.

Campground Response

On every hydrant is a sign politely asking guests not to fill water tanks as it depletes wells and affects everyone. This is not an uncommon request for parks in remote areas. You saw the sign. You read it. You acknowledged this. You ignored it and filled your tank anyway and gave not a care about your fellow guests. When I politely asked you not do it again you claim you didn't understand the sign that read 'Please don't fill water tanks from this hydrant". I'm happy you won't be coming back. I don't want people like you and I suspect most places you go would feel the same.

Not for us! Water was brown, not all sites have septic yet you’re charged the same. Site advertises septic. Only 30 amp service AND the campground is butted up against a highway and interstate. Very noisy even at night. Sites are hard to get into because they are small and you’re wedged in with tree limbs. If your rv is smaller than 38’ you may be fine but ours barely fit and we had to change sites. There’s a bridge the rig barely fits on and looks like it’s going to go any minute. It’s a pretty campground, nice stream running through. But it needs updating. From what I understand this is a new owner and he apparently has a lot of long stats and they get the good stuff, So stay at your own risk.

This campground just wasn’t for us. There was only one shower and one actual working toilet. The other 2 toilets were just holes in the ground. The creek was very nice but the highway was right there. We did stop at Chubby’s bar and grill right next store and had some amazing food!

Tenters beware!! We have never had a more horrible experience in a campground!! The website is totally deceiving...this campground is crammed between two busy roads, the traffic noise is horrible! We were shown our tent site, a spot behind the bathrooms that smelled horrible and looked like somebody's junk yard. We asked to be moved to another site, which was better, but had no picnic table. We attempted to move one from next to our site, and it nearly fell apart. We didn't dare sit on it. The "shower facility" was old and disgusting! There was a tiny trickle of water that lasted for about 15 seconds, and then went bone dry. No water in the shower or the sink. The toilet wouldn't flush. There were two "optional" vault toilets, but they smelled so bad that we couldn't get within 5 feet of the door without gagging. There was a dog penned directly across the stream from our site which started barking at 6:00 am and didnt stop for at least an hour! We couldn't leave this campground fast enough...wasted half of the next day looking for a place where we could shower and use the bathroom. Didn't have internet access to try to reach the host to ask for a refund. We will never forget this nightmare!!

Bathrooms had no toilet paper, not cleaned daily. Campground between 2 busy highways. Beautiful sites by creek, but close to highway. Owner very nice.

Nice setting with a creek surrounding the camp. The freeway is next door but it's not that obvious. WiFi worked surpringly well. Water wasn't as pressurized but that was due to the water table being low but it was enough to do basic tasks. There is a dog pen to let your pooch run around in. Probably one of the few places around Helena to camp and it's not as tight as KOA.

No water! Supposedly on well water, but there was none. Camp is not kept up. Appear to be many “permanent” rvs parked.

Left a day early after paying for 2, this is basically a one nighter if you’re strapped for a place. Fairly noisy in between the interstate and another road. One resident let his dog run all over, then he sat at our picnic table as it swam in the creek. Dump station is on wrong side going out with no cleaning water hose. Chemical toilets with combo locks and the shower was an old bathroom off the laundry room. This was probably a great little place 10 years ago, now, not so much, but it stays full.

We stayed a week (July 2021). Our creekside site 10 was absolutely gorgeous. I love the dog park. It is well-designed and provides a bench so you can sit and watch the dogs in a beautiful shaded setting. Good WiFi and responsive park manager. Hope to stay again sometime.

location is very noisy, between a highway and a frontage road. The restroom is a pit toilet. The shower was less than inviting. The dump station is on the wrong side of the road.

Campground Response

Road noise is what it is in order to be accessible from the freeway. As for the toilets and dump station, the park was designed 35 years ago with maintaining the stream and environment as a priority and attempting to prevent not so conscientious campers from far outside our area with less concern for ecology they don't have to life with from contamination. If you prefer parking lots to nature this isn't the campground for you. If you like to actually camp we offer that experience.

Very nice RV park.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Not many RV parks provide fire rings, and they did. The site was well groomed, and WiFi was good. We were stream side in site K, and loved listening to the water. The road noise was more than I’d like, but it didn’t wake us too often, and that’s often a side effect of easy access. Manager was friendly and really helpful/accommodating, even when we had to change our arrival/departure dates due to a small veterinary emergency. We would stay again if we ever need to return to Helena!

Plenty of room between sites. Site #1 was level and had grass with a picnic table. It appears the RV park is trying to improve, they almost had a dog park completed. We would stay here again if we are in the area.

Very relaxing spot and host was welcoming. The park is not able to have sewer drops in each site do to the proximity to the beautiful creek. But this was not a problem for our two day stay. Power and fresh water was all ya need. Our site was on the creek. It does not get any better. They are close off of the freeway.
