On road 4 days; first night of RV trip with hot showers, electricity at Fort Peck Dam


Fort Peck Dam, Downstream Campground. Sept.29, 2010 by Julianne CraneThis is the fourth night of our six-month RV road journey circumnavigating the Lower 48. It is our first night with electricity, internet access and most importantly hot showers … we’re tired, but clean.

We are nesting in the Downstream Campground in the shadow of the Fort Peck Dam in northeastern Montana. Only about ten of the 86 sites are occupied in this Corps of Engineers campground. Autumn is in beautiful color here.

Using our half-price Senior Access Pass we are paying $8/day for a 30 amp hookup. (General cost would be $16. Or $12 without electricity.)

    Hi folks:

    We’ve been checking your blog and watching your progress. We stayed at Downstream at Fork Peck a couple years ago and found it like so many other COE campgrounds… nicely laid out, and more a campground than an RV park… just the way we like it.

    I’m sure your auspicious start to this journey will continue. Safe travels…

    Thom and Dar
