Roadtrip filter: I am planning on a solo road trip from Denver to Portland, OR by way of Missoula, MT, to visit friends in both of those places. Need suggestions of places to stay on the way.

Having plotted the trip in Google maps, I estimate that it will take me two days to get to Missoula, one day to Portland, and two days from Portland back to Denver. I need either a tent campsite not too far out in the boonies, or a cheap cabin, somewhere in the vicinity of Billings, MT (give or take) on the way out, and near Twin Falls, ID (approximately) on the way back. I am open to motels/hotels, but camping would be my first choice. If I should plan on stopping for the night somewhere other than these places (but close to halfway), let me know.
I would feel more comfortable with a campground host or the like (no dispersed or primitive camping). I plan on stopping only for the night, to set up the tent, blow up the mattress, perhaps for morning coffee, and then I want to get back on the road.
Estimated departure would be July 21 or 28. Tips on what to expect on this router are also welcome. Thanks, hive mind!
