Helena, Montana Campground | Helena North KOA JourneyWhether you’re exploring the Rocky Mountain beauty of Montana, or you are on a longer journey traveling through the West, the new Helena North KOA provides a convenient base camp. It lies just half a mile off I-15, with plenty of Pull Thru RV sites for larger rigs. All RV sites have 30-to-50-amp service, along with a patio area and picnic table. In Helena, Montana’s State Capital, you can hop aboard the Last Chance Tour Train for an engaging open-air ride around the Capital grounds, through the mansion district and past a restored miner’s village. About 10 miles north, boat tours take visitors up the Missouri Rive through a canyon of towering limestone wall – a historic route traveled by Lew and Clark, who dubbed it the Gates of the Mountains. You’ll fine other spectacular mountain scenery to the north and south; Helena lies midway between Glacier and Yellowstone national parks.
