Buffalo Bob's Pizza Place and Family Fun Center is located on the campground and is a full service restaurant serving pizza, sandwiches, snacks, pasta and daily specials. It also has a beer and wine license for the convenience of its guests. There is an adult dining area that seats one hundred people and a family fun center and game room that seats 350 people. This facility is a great place for family reunions or group rallies. If your camping trip is interrupted by rainy weather, you can still have fun indoors. The facility also houses the campground indoor/outdoor swimming pool so the kids can even swim when it's raining outside.
In addition to the two swimming pools, there is a large outdoor hot tub that is designated for the exclusive use of adults. All campsites have a fire ring so you can set around the campfire while the kids are out enjoying their activities. The restaurant has an adult area that serves beer and wine and is a quiet area separate from the game room and swimming pool. We also rent bicycles for adults and the thirty-three Acre campground has many quiet trails great for a stroll in the evening. There is a store with a selection of convenience foods, beer, wine, and many made in Montana gifts. There are several data ports so you can check out the Internet or pick up your e-mail. Want something more active? Try out your skill by challenging someone to a game of horseshoes or take your kids on in a game of miniature golf. If the weather isn't great for outdoor activities or in the evening try your hand at one of the many board games available in the huge game room or watch some TV in the adult section of the restaurant.
There are many things for teenagers to do on this campground. Enjoy the new indoor/outdoor swimming pool, lounge on the large deck. Rent a fun bike and race around the park, make some new friends and enjoy a pickup game of basketball, find a few more new friends and get together a volleyball game. Hang out in the spacious game room while enjoying a pizza. Take a hike through the woods. Challenge your parents to a game of horseshoes or see if you can beat them at mini golf. Join some friends tossing around a ball or a Frisbee in our large field. In the evening you can join your family around a campfire at your site or just ask and we will start a community campfire away from all of the campsites.
The younger camper can enjoy many of the same activities the teenagers enjoy. Our swimming pool is designed to provide a shallow area where they can play without being trampled by other campers. The pool is partially covered so it can be used even in inclement weather. We also rent smaller fun cycles for the younger camper to enjoy. The huge playground provides a safe place to climb, slide and run without getting into any trouble. There is a special nature trail which the campers can follow using a special map showing the locations of stamp pads. If they find all of the stamps and mark their maps correctly they will win a treat.
In addition to the large indoor/outdoor pool, we've built a special wading pool for the tots that slope from zero to only one foot deep. It has bubbling rocks and a water spray where the little ones can play in the water without fear of being hurt. This pool is under a roof so it can be enjoyed without fear of sunburn or inclement weather but it is open to the outside so they enjoy fresh air. We also have a separate fenced playground for the little ones where they can climb, slide, and play in the sand without being pushed aside by the large children. There is also comfortable seating for adults to sit while watching the tots enjoy their activities.
While it is great to let the different members of the family enjoy their own activities, one of the benefits of camping is the chance to do things as a family. The entire family can also enjoy all of the activities listed above. Think about playing a round of mini golf as a family, join your kids and shoot some hoops together, take a hike or sit around a campfire and tell stories and enjoy each other's company. Enjoy a pizza together or play a board game like monopoly or scrabble in the large game room.
