A National Forest Service campground that is in a spectacular location and is large enough to accommodate larger rv's. I travel in a 38 ft 5er and found several sites, including a couple water front that I can fit in. This park is typical of NFS campgrounds where there are no hookups in most of the sites. A few have electric, and there are communal water spigots available. The water and electric are only available from about Memorial Day through late September. The park remains open all year (to the best of my knowledge). The lake is great for boating and fishing. There is Verizon service, but voice calls are spotty, texting and Internet worked fine.

Best place to stay in Ennis - especially if you're in a big rig (I have a 38 ft 5er). Easy pull thru sites, convenient location just North of town. There are two parks in town, but space appears to be VERY tight in each and back in only. Good Verizon service in the park, nice restaurants in town. Try the Gravel Bar and Grill for great burgers and fries. Not far from Virginia City and Nevada City - tourist spots and just a few miles south of Ennis lake which has lots of fishing and boating opportunities.

Honestly was not impressed with the owner. I found him rude and obnoxious. Placed me in a space that was basically a swamp (it had rained recently - but this site seemed to be underwater where others were not. Park space is relatively tight, that is not too much room to maneuver, but it was done easily enough with my 38 ft 5er. Truck had precious little room to squeeze in behind my 5er. Location relative to Bozeman is good, only about 1 mile from downtown. Many nice shops and great places to eat.

A city park that should be a model for all small towns! Over 30 sites - many pull through. They have a caretaker who will greet you shortly after arrival and provide you with an envelope to make a donation - I encourage you to do so to keep this area open. You are welcome to stay up to 10 days. It is all non-reservable and no electric. There is water along side the bathroom building accessible by hose (you provide the hose!) It is safe and well kept. There are sites along side the river (Yellowstone River?) Great proximity to town. The McDonalds has at least 2 tables with electric (if you need to charge things up!) There are two restaurants in town worth visiting - the 307 Bar and Grill and the Cafe. The IGA market is new and quite well stocked. Columbus is about 40 miles west of Billings and is a far better place to stay instead of staying in Billings itself.

Understand what this place is - it's a state park that is "off the beaten path". I stayed at a non-electric site and tested out my new solar panels. During the week after Labor Day, it was very quiet. The water front sites are truly water front (I stayed in Marshalls Cove) - a great place to bring a Kayak. There are also electric sites available. You will need to drive about 1 mile on a gravel, wash boarded road to get to Marshalls Cove. Longer if you want to get to the other campgrounds that comprise Cooney Dam Reservior. The place has a spirit of adventure about it. Phone service is limited to Fisherman's point - about 1 mile from Marshalls Cove.

A great location to begin an adventure! Located on the south side of town - that's the side that is past Red Lodge and at the beginning of the Beartooth Highway. There are two sections to this park - above and below. The "below" section is along the Rock Creek. You can hear the creek from almost any site in that section. I travel in a 38 ft fifth wheel and was definitely able to navigate the lower section. The manager is friendly and helpful. She has much information to share - especially about the Beartooth highway and Yellowstone National Park. They are installing new bathrooms. Each site is water and electric but they do have a RV dump. Red Lodge has great restaurants - I recommend the Red Box Car (at south end of town) and Bogarts (for GREAT pizza) - and originating from NJ, I KNOW great pizza!

Billings has only 2 RV parks - and they are right next to each other. They are BOTH overpriced (a full hookup w/ good sam discount is 62.), I opted for water and electric only to save 14. That said, the location is good, the park is clean and well kept and the workers are very friendly. Honestly, I would not opt to visit Billings unless I had business to conduct there! Traffic is about the worst I've seen outside of the east coast megalopolis - and I'm from North Jersey!

New laundry machines - not cheap (2.) but good. Nice location - nearby Sheridan Inn and other great restaurants and coffee shops. Sheridan is a good town worth a day or two visit. Owners are friendly and run a good campground.

I stayed from March - Sept. on a monthly basis (hence the rate). This park is under NEW management - and they are GREAT - very different from the prior manager. Good location in W Casper (near Mills). Safe - secure - and a great place to live while working in town. New playground for kids. Bathrooms are immaculate. Two concerns - water pressure is fairly low and water is VERY hard (I bought an anode to save my water tank.)

Used the PA rate for the 2 nights they allow. This is the Only campground in the entire valley that remains - and they price it accordingly. Good location - just outside of Victor (several good eateries, pubs); near Grand Targhee Resort (ski/summer); "near" Jackson - about 30 miles; "near" Yellowstone (closer to 90 miles); free coffee daily; nice meeting room; quiet, safe The bad: Overpriced - upwards of 57/night for a pull-thru if you don't have PA. Tight Spaces - your neighbor is quite close and your site is not long enough (I travel in a 38 ft RV) to readily fit your vehicle in the same site. I kinda fit mine, my neighbors either parked on grass or parked in an unoccupied site. Even though its nearly the end of the September, the park is nearly full (mid-week). If you plan is to explore the valley on the west side of the Tetons, again, this is the only game in the region (from Victor to Driggs to Tetonia).

For what it is, Beaver Dick Park is a great value. Quiet, tranquil, and easy access for a 38 ft. 5th wheel. NO hookups! Strictly dry camping. Located about 5 miles W of Rexburg - and know that there is NO sign saying "beaver dick" or "county road" from Rt. 33. Instead it says "historical point". There is a line of trees (that associate with the stream) - and - I would not call any of the sites "waterfront". Your views are basically of trees and a playground. There is a stream (slow moving in September) and it is on the property - but no sites are along it. Camping here becomes free on Oct 1 and continues until the following Spring.

A park with "character"! Yep, this is an "old time" park, and the owner has been with it for many years. But, she keeps it clean and quiet. It is NOT a "cookie cutter" park by any means. There are two rows of "standard" back in sites - one row is along a stream (river), there are a few pull through sites, but the most interesting part of the park is in the back where the pond and stream are near each other. Those sites have no sewer, but she does have a dump station on the way out. About 2.5 miles east of New Meadows (best known for 3 coffee shops for about 500 residents) and 6 miles down the hill from much larger McCall. I stayed a week - and the rate I posted is a "per night" rate based upon staying a week.

A gem of a small park - near the river (I hesitate to call it water front as there is a 100 ft or so field to cross between the hookup sites and the river.) The owner is a wonderful woman who is running the park on her own at the age of 82! Very quiet, about 12 miles south of Salmon (great town), and amazing views. Wi-Fi worked fine. Phone service is VERY limited (Verizon) - but it is a steep valley. Saw (in 1 day) bald eagle, wild goats, and ramshorn sheep.

Challis Valley RV Resort is a unique place for one reason - its owner - he is a walking "chamber of commerce". The owner was VERY helpful in showing me all that Challis and the surrounding wilderness region has to offer - 3 ghost towns, hundreds of miles of ATV trails, the Custer Motorway - a CCC era road that heads off into genuine wilderness. Additional activities in the area include bicycling, hiking, a state park run interpretive center (Yankee Fork), and much more. The campground isn't real fancy by ANY means, but you'll get water/sewer/and electric (30 amp) - and with guidance from the owner, you'll find yourself spending more nights than you planned and be glad you did!

Ridgeview is one of two "premium" campgrounds at Lake Cascade State Park. The other is "Poison Creek" on the west side of the lake (quite far actually from this location). Ridgeview is along the lake, the farthest sites in this CG will be no farther than a couple of hundred feet from the water. Some sites have full hookups, some lack sewer. The sites with the better view of the lake are situated about 15 ft above lake level and do not have sewer. The CG has somewhat of a "chinese menu" for pricing - with/without sewer, over/under 62, and I understand next season in/out of state of Idaho. The shower building is new and immaculate. Showers are free to those who stay at this CG. There are two other neighboring campgrounds (that are part of the State Park) and those staying there must pay $3 per person per shower. There is a host on-site. He is VERY efficient and helpful. They also sell wood at 5/bundle.
