Below: Hardin KOA in Hardin Montana, Big Horn County. The first campground in awhile with a pool and hot tub, but they close at 8 P.M. which is way to early in the opinion of the two RV Gypsies. They seldom use such amenities, but sometimes they do have the time to do so. No clotheslines are allowed here. A Camping sink was provided for washing dishes, but again, the two RV Gypsies do not need or use such items. Washing of cars or RV's not permitted. There was 50 amp service which the two RV Gypsies need. Plus bicycle rentals, cable TV - limited stations - FOX station, Free Wi-Fi, LP Gas, tent sites. Ice Cream socials in June, July and August.

Below: The campground had old bicycles lined up marking their boundary. The two RV Gypsies donated their two bicycles to this campground because they had not used them on the entire trip, even though they were in excellent condition - just dirty from the Alaska Highway. And Lee Duquette thought they were in the way and too much work. The owner was shocked that the two RV Gypsies would just give away bicycles in such perfect condition. Actually, Karen Duquette hopes she would not regret that decision in the future.

The bikes below are NOT the ones, the two RV Gypsies donated.
