Campground St. Regis, the park with the WILDLIFE CARVINGS, is located approx. 2 miles West of St. Regis, MT. (Off I-90 Exit 33). Being surrounded by mountains this campground feels peacefully secluded. Once you arrive and make it past the big ole’ carved bear standing by the office door, you’ll enter a registration office and be greeted with Western hospitality by Hosts Mitch & Lisa Hollingsworth or one of their friendly staff members. You’ll be escorted to one of 75 sites — that is, if you’re ready to break away from the gift shop filled with a variety of western gifts, jewelry and carved critters waiting to be adopted. This RV Park/Campground is beautifully maintained in a wooded setting of shaded sites and green grass. Little surprises pop out as you stroll through the campground. Brightly colored flowers might live in an old dead stump; hanging baskets of florals brighten the office, laundry & game room walkway. Then more surprises can be found hanging on the side of a pole or carved into stumps or on top of them! These are the chain saw critter carvings that have been created by a local artist who realistically sculpts the animals. Each piece becomes a unique work of art. The laundry and restrooms are sparkling clean. Now for a swim? The heated pool is ready. Meanwhile, back at St. Regis: restaurants, gambling, golfing (2 courses), fishing, white water rafting…and by the way, Campground St. Regis has plenty of sites for tenters. Hwy. 135 heads North out of St …
This is rare film footage of the Gospel Kingdom Campground that was founded by William Sowders in 1935 in Shepherdsville, KY. My great grandfather Reva Mears used a 16 mm camera to film the Campground in 1939. Reva’s eldest son Cornelius Mears crawled up on top of the water tower to get some of this material. Pastor Steve Farmer from Christian Gospel Temple has helped me to acquire some of the supporting photographs used in this video.
