We couldn't get in Boyd Lake SP when it was full for the weekend ,so tried this park. The worker campers in office were nice but open hours are very limited. Looked like nearly every site was taken by full-time residents or long term visitors from out of state. Were told the Park has been purchased by owner of Riverview Rv Park down the street and eventually will not be open to over night campers. It was ok for our purposes, with cable, wifi and good electric. Bathrooms were small and very outdated; so was Laundry room. Most sites were tight and in full sun. Easy drive up Big Thompson canyon to Estes. Can't really recommend and it will be a residential-type place anyway.

At least this website prepared us for this overpriced park. But we were surprised on check-in to learn that they no longer have "60 channel cable TV", just 24 with the networks out of California, instead of Denver. At least our site wasn't too unlevel and only had one neighbor. Bathrooms were dirty and had standing water late at night. The RV office is inside the BBQ restaurant. The WiFi was weak, but Verizon MiFi was fine. We will try to avoid Cheyenne in the future but this park could be tolerable for one night . Maybe.

Very likeable, appealing park, with many shade trees and nice staff. Pool and swings for kids, clean restrooms, and laundry. We liked the varied rates for different size rigs and hookups. Great TV cable lineup. Most sites gravel but ours grass; glad it didn't rain. Very good RV car wash across street, a cheap gas station, and some fast food places plus a steakhouse all close by.

Pretty good city rv park. Easy exit from I-90, wide enough paved & shady sites, lots of cable channels, clean restrooms and laundry. Voltage was low upon hookup but there was enough breeze late in day to not use AC. Mid-summer could be a problem. Sewer cap was way back; glad we didn't need it on overnight. Nice lady in office let us pick our site. Price is high but includes taxes.

This park is good for an overnight on Passport America ($20). Can't see paying full price. Just a wide spot on the road next to the interstate and near the train tracks, but was quiet enough inside the coach at night. Laundry room was in good shape, with brand new washers. Just 2 showers but clean. Cable was 24 channels, no ESPN nor CNN. Would stop again just for the price deal, and convenience between Billings and Livingston.

The wonderful owners make this small park special. You can't tell when you arrive, right off the highway. Some of the sites are a bit tight but there's some shade, and the Yellowstone River is right there. Only one washer and dryer, so don't plan a big laundry day. Single shower is gorgeous, and somehow it worked out since most people used their own. Extensive TV cable, and needed to use the park WiFi since Verizon MiFi was weak. Cell was fine though. Just 2+ miles to town.

This is our overall favorite CG in the park since it has some almost-level sites, unlike the CGs elsewhere, and there is a cell phone tower nearby. Plus it's at 6200' so not as cold overnight as the others. Elk herds are always around, here or by the Lodge. Bathrooms in good shape and water nearby. Too bad there's not a dump station but it's a small CG. A shower house would be great too, but for the $10 half-rate (if you qualify), this is a deal. Hosts very nice and helpful. Try not to camp by the lower highway.

The previous reviewer has some wrong info. The rate at this CG is $29.60 w/tax, and half price for people with certain passes. It is centrally located in the Park,m but built on the side of a mountain and not for today's RVs. Your best hope is to make a reservation for a long site and arrive early afternoon for the site assignment. If it is too unlevel or treed, find a better one and ask for that . The tent sites looked pretty good for tenters. Bathroom bldgs are updated with recycling bins, and hot showers and laundry mat are nearby. Remember it's at 7900' and will be cold at night. You are there for the scenery and wildlife. Don't bring a big rig here.

New owners have worked hard on this small ,quiet park. All the sites now have gravel in between grass. See the website for rates, they vary quite a bit. While the top for full hookups is $44, there are some discounts and the W & E site is $35. Too bad most sites are in full sun on the 90 degree days but saw some nice shady pull-throughs. We liked the private bathrooms but not the little laundry room. Laundromat down the road, and some good places to eat in town. Will be back; very good place outside of Yellowstone NP.

This park would rate higher but it was just too crazy busy, with campers waiting to check in blocking the street, people all over the place, big rigs running their 2 ACs, and the power voltage scary low. Voltage meter showed 108-112 all day; didn't get to 120 til midnight. Owner blew off our concerns. Sewer cap did not screw on. Water bib was duct-taped shut. Small, dated bathrooms; very tiny laundry room for such a big park. Painfully noisy highway and GF airport next to park, plus occasional AF jets flying over. Park has potential to be so much better. Only real reason to be here is to go to the Lewis & Clark Center and the Russell museum.

This is an excellent forest service cg. Liked it so much last year, we reserved an Electric site for a weekend, but the $9 fee was unsettling. However, the base rate was just $24, then half off for Passes. Nice place to relax, with no internet, cell,etc. But the daytime highway noise gets loud. No dump station, but 2 water spigots available. Go to Big Sky for a cell signal, stop at the Hungry Moose for great eats, and many recycling bins nearby.

This is a small, family-owned park in a small town that has excellent repair shops (highly recommend Cut Bank Tire and also the Auto Body repair shop on the main street). The owners were super friendly and helpful to everyone so don't know what the previous reviewer's problem was. The $30 rate for 30 amp, GS discount was quite fair, with strong power, water and great tv cable.(more $$ for 50amp) Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. Nice showers and large restroom. Only 2 washers/dryers , for $4 load. Good place to stop before or after Glacier and much better than going to Shelby.

We decided to try this park based on reviews, and to avoid the madhouse of Rocky Mtn. Hi park. Nice shady park but next to the noisy highway. Make sure you don't get that row. Price was higher than expected and a real disappointment when we got into our site. The manager did a great job of backing us in, considering how horribly narrow it was. The hookups were on the wrong side, and the cable was back in the trees. Used every inch of our cords, couldn't use hose. The neighbor's picnic table was 2' from our coach, and we had to sit on their bench just to open our storage bay. The big rig pull- thru sites looked much better. Verizon cell and mifi okay; good cable. Restrooms were clean but they oddly close an hour in the morning before checkout. Definitely not worth the price and don't plan to return.

Date of Stay:

Overall, an outstanding national park campground, considering the mostly large sites, beautiful views, and showers- but only in one loop - and sites can be reserved online. The cost is $23; don't know why previous reviewer said $35. Certain Park passes allow half price, so we stayed 7 nights x $11.50. Had to move a few times, used Loop B and C. Never had anything level at all, but you're only there at night (and be sure to see the stars after 11pm) .

For a small country park with a lot of land and expansive views, this was a pleasant stop. Also helps to have Verizon 3G access on phone but 4G MiFi wouldn't work. Easy walk to town and over to the huge lodge. Very nice owner, casual park management. Only real drawback to us was the rustic bathrooms, which needed some serious cleaning. Showers are 25-50 cents. Community laundromat available. Will surely be back and stay longer.
