Stayed for a week in June it was packed during the weekend and pretty much empty during the week. There is no cell phone (unless you have a booster) and no wi-fi. The place was clean and the people friendly. The gravel pad was mostly level. - Wandering With Us

Nice park if you like HOT, no shade, silty lake, no showers, no dump station. Scenery great but only hookup available is electric and only on some sites. Outhouses stink bad. Wayyyyyy too hot for July and August!! Watch out for wind in afternoon. Blew our attached shade tent down, broke tension strap hooks and bent poles in half. Would only come here again if temps fall below 80. - PodnUs

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. - alansills

Free campground, although donations are accepted. We had a pull-through which worked for us as we were just passing through and didn't want to unhook. The roads were dusty, probably because of the dry weather and not so much the fault of the campground. We would definitely stay here again on our way through, although we would pick a site not on the main campground road to avoid some of the dust from vehicles coming and going. Good little spot for a stop for the night. - Marsha D

We were looking for a place to stop where we could get caught up on email, news, etc. after 2 hectic weeks in Teton/Yellowstone. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on week days in mid-July in our 25 foot MH. This is a free CG run by the town (by volunteers) and we enjoyed our stay. The volunteers stopped by and were friendly. There are 2 sections to the CG. Enter via the upper CG to find sites arrayed in a large treed field. Follow a dirt road at the far end, past the golf course, and find the lower CG with sites arrayed mostly in the trees along the Yellowstone River. We stayed in the upper CG. The sites were mostly level with picnic tables, fire rings and firewood may be available for free. The sites were a mix of sun and shade. Many were quite large with some privacy. There's no wifi. There was reliable Verizon and ATT coverage that slowed temporarily in the early evening. There is a boat launch in the lower CG so there was a bit of car traffic in the early evening which stopped by 9pm and was not a problem. Trains did go through the town at night and did not keep us awake. The CG could use a little TLC, yet, it was a nice free place to stay. - dsvt

We would come back for an overnight stay. Convenient access from I-90. Site was reasonably level, hooks are central to front and back, wifi excellent, verizon two bars, we used sat TV only. There are trees and it you can get a site with a tree on your south side during the summer, that would be a good thing! We didn't so could not sit outside in 100 deg afternoon. Good time to check the A/C! - rncordy

Back-in 30 amp electrical only sites were the only available sites. Park seems to be mostly long term residents. Was satisfactory for a one night stay. - campingdog

Good and bad about this park. The good is that the owners are very nice and did manage to find a 50 amp, FHU, pullthrough for our one night stay. The site was easy to level up with one board, and the hookups were conveniently located. We were able to get 4 channels OTA and they were good channels, not all PBS. The part I didn't like is the price. This is located right off I-90 and also near a railroad track. There were quite a few trains, but I didn't get woken up (even though I wore earplugs) until 5 am, then there were 3 trains close together. When we hooked up I didn't like how long the grass was at our site (36) and couldn't help but wonder about snakes! The grass on both sides of our site was very long, and my husband read on their information sheet about the park a caution that "Rattlesnakes also like our RV Park. Watch out for them at all times." I called the office and told them I had just read that and asked them to mow our grassy areas because there were places it was over a foot long. It was their break time (1-3pm) but they said they would come look when they got back. Unless it was a drive-by, we never saw them come and the grass wasn't mowed or weedeated. The owner said the snakes are only in the fields, not the park, but the fields were just a driveway apart from our RV. Lastly, the very nice shade tree REALLY needed to be trimmed...it scratched our RV a lot. This is not a destination park, but a place for an overnight stay. - Ginny H

Very well kept park with wifi, laundry and bathhouse. Sites are well tended and level. the park us right off the Interstate so very convenient but there is a little road noise as might be expected. Didn't bother us, however. Owner actually called us on day of arrival to check ETA and someone was there to greet us as we drove in! - BWO

We were here 4 years ago and knew that this park met our basic needs for a simple one night stay. It is a very good "just overnight" park. The only significant change I noticed is that they no longer accept Passport America. Even without it, $35 less 10% for Good Sam is reasonable. All sites are long, gravel, pull through, FHU sites with cable TV. Most sites appear to be satellite friendly. Our site was level. Both the laundry and bathrooms were fairly modern, clean and adequate for this small park. The Wi-Fi was fine for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The park staff was friendly and helpful. Since about half the sites are taken by extended stay customers, I recommend calling ahead for reservations during the summer. I did not notice any recycling. - Jerry S

Great place for overnight. Just off the interstate. Would give it a 10 except for the noise from trains that run all night. - ranchhand

First, be VERY CAREFUL pulling into their driveway if you are coming from the south. There is a very deep (3-4') ditch with concrete around it and the grass is grown up around it and in it so you don't see it. They are on a 2 lane, 70 mph road (212) and only have one sign on the highway right at their entrance. We had a semi behind us and ended up swinging a little too narrow so our RV went into that ditch! Our RV tipped sideways and we were able to put it into 4wd and slowly get out of the ditch (we were not in the deepest part) However, it crumpled the bed of our 2018 F350, and also took some of the fiberglass off the RV and ruined the electric jack in the rear and took off some trim, etc). Anyways, now to the review of the park itself...it needs mowing everywhere, and considering this is the big week of the Beartooth Rally, it surprised me that it hadn't been cleaned up. We had a 50 amp, water site only because they are totally booked up. You have to drive over a small bridge with trees hanging down on both sides, which need to be trimmed. I mentioned to the owner twice about weedeating her entryway and it still hasn't been done. No over the air channels or cable, but satellite worked well. Wifi was iffy, and I had to go to the office to connect the first time, then it was spotty back at our site. I wouldn't say not to come here because the campground is okay, just a bad experience for us. - Ginny H

We stayed here twice within a short period of time. We only stayed the second time because it is the only campground around with sewer. Easy to find. Not easy for big rigs to navigate. The campground is dirty and dusty. The site was dirt and rocks. Wifi is nonexistent and they know it. There was no wifi at either of the two sites we had. It is completely dishonest for them to advertise that they have wifi. There is no cable and we could not get any ota channels. Traffic noise is disturbing. The water connection was difficult and needs replacing. Additionally the water pressure is low. The cost of this KOA is ridiculously high for what you get. This is the worst KOA at which I have ever stayed and it should not be part of their system. I will never stay there again. - FSUWizard

Pros: The week end after the 4th of July, I made reservations 2 weeks earlier and was fortunate I could get in. (I tried another RV park first which I preferred, but they were booked.) When I arrived they assigned me to a site that was too short for my RV and toad and only had 30 amp. I noticed that the site next to it was longer and had 50 amp which I had asked for. They switched me with someone that had been assigned to it which turned out to be a 20' trailer that only required 30 amp so it worked for both of us.
Cons: Poor placement of RVs for fitting sites, but they were at least accommodating. When I went to turn on the water, it sprayed all over from the packing not on the hose bib. I went to the office and told the staff member (after she was done texting). I offered to put my y-splitter on the next unoccupied site hose connection, and get out my longer hose to hook us up. Unfortunately when I opened the valve, it also sprayed out the packing nut on the hose bib. Both of them had been tighten as far as was possible, so the person that pulled in later, and I both filled our tanks, shut the valves and used our pumps. I also told the maintenance man about the problem but it was never fixed before I left.
Did I mention there was no sewer at my site. The voltage dropped below 108 and my EMS cut us off to protect our electrical system. It came back up to 109 so we were able to use only one air conditioner again. The next day when many pulled out, the voltage came up to 117. I believe their wiring is old and undersized for the amount of RVs connected. The wifi worked intermittently.
We were not here for the RV park, but to drive and admire the beautiful views of the Beartooth Hwy. We were not disappointed . We spent 3days driving and viewing the scenery. It was magnificent. - JAWS

This is a primitive Forest Service campground. It was relatively clean and the site we chose was nice and level. Some improvements could be made to some of the camp spots like filling in pot holes and mud holes. When we stayed there were no fire restrictions in place, but as this is a National Forest, one should always check before starting a campfire. This is also an area that is quite popular on weekends, so go early if you want to get a good spot. We will camp here again. - MT woodworker

Have been here before and only reason we wanted full hu. Stayed at other campground on river for a week and would have stayed longer but no full hu. As before, and mentioned in many reviews, over priced by about 10 bucks. Typical KOA, gotta pay for franchise fees. Interaction with office folks was ok. Office was nicely stocked with typical campground supplies. We have been to about 20 KOAs over the years and only because no other options. This one ranks with many. Over priced versus the competition. Except for hundreds of dead tree limbs scattered around, landscape plants and trees looked healthy. Maintenance of large pines, though needed to be trimmed and branches are full of dead cones and debris. Too bad. Someone could make this a great place if KOA wasn't involved. We had a pull thru 30 amp fhu for 55 bucks. No. I'm not kidding. If issues change, we may come back. - Bill N NM

Stayed for one night. There was train and traffic noise, but did not bother us after a long day of traveling. The campground looked well maintained and clean with a lot of activities for smaller children. The individual sites are very narrow and you step out of the front door to your neighbors sewer, electrical and water hookups. The sites are long enough for long vehicles and you should not have to disconnect. The trees are mature and provide a lot of shade, but be careful maneuvering your rig as some are close to where you need to turn. All campground roads and pads are gravel. There is a small babbling brook at the back of the campground. A good spot to spend the night off the road, but is pricey for the narrowness of individual campsites. - 66 Mustang

Will NEVER stay there again due to the manager's attitude. It is a nice looking KOA. Had a pull thru with full HU. The sewer pipe in our site stuck high up off the ground for a sewer hose, luckily we had a box to elevate it. After getting settled in, noticed a dead tree branch above the RV and there were 27 mph winds per Weather.com that day. Based on the time of day we figured we would just be asked to move, so climbed on the roof and took down the branch. Called manager, she called back about 45 min later. Relayed what we did and asked for a discount or something for our inconvenience. She could have cared less. She said she had 2 full time maintenance men (funny they never noticed a dead branch quite a few feet long and brown) to take care of things and refused anything, only repeated she had the 2 full time maintenance men. I would have been happy with even a $5 credit but she could care less about our inconvenience or the damage it could have caused to our RV. Funny I never got the standard rate my stay review from that KOA, like all the others. - Debbie L H
