This is actually titled the Big Timber/Greycliff KOA. It is a Journey class, and after experiencing this place we think it means it is a park you only want to pass thru once. No KOA signs so follow directions. There is a long abandoned water park out of a Stephen King novel adjacent to the KOA so when you see it you know you have arrived.
Access is tight. Roads and sites are rough gravel. There is grass between the sites. Sites are narrow but long enough. Lots of big trees so if you have a roof mounted satellite, shoot for site 23-25. There is an "apology" on the back of the park site map saying they can't help the highway noise (not too bad) nor the trains: which sound like they are under your slideout.
Not many places to walk your dog. There is a standard "tiny" KOA off leash area. While walking our dogs (which we clean up after) we were told by the staff they were concerned that our dogs were 'going' near the campsites (they weren't) and we should use the dirty dog run. Instead we walked them near the extensive on premises dump or up in the abandoned water park. We noted that the water supply pipe runs thru the dump so we used on board water.
Not pet friendly. Not really kid friendly; there is a small playground and a dirty bounce field, but most kids toys were spotted in the dried out stream bed of the water park. There is a pool but it was covered in August. Said they would uncover it if we wanted to use it!
Although not very nice, it is nicer than another, rated #1 (really) KOA. I looked at the ratings on this place, and anyone who gave it an 8 must be related to the 6 inhabitants of the town. - okdiver

Long shady sites close together. 10:00am check out which is earlier than most. Stayed one night on our way through. Very noisy! Close to freeway and trains all day and night. They do offer ear plugs. - Maysie

This is our 7th summer at Spring Creek and we drive over 1,000 miles to reach what we consider paradise by the river. The park is small and beautifully maintained. On the sign, it says "Big Rigs Welcome" and they are. That does not mean every site can accommodate a 40 or 45 foot coach. We have a 45' coach and we make our reservation far in advance so that we can be in a comfortable, appropriate site. When travelers arrive late in the day without a reservation, their options may be limited as the park has been very busy this year, probably because the vast majority of visitors find it charming and peaceful. Even so, the managers and staff try very hard to accommodate everyone as long as there is space. - vickyfullen

This was a very peaceful RV park. A little off the beaten path, but worth it. People were friendly and helpful. Our site was next to a trout pond where we were able to enjoy a nice evening fire. - DCM2015

Very pleasant stay. Close to I-90 and a very quaint little town of Reed Point, MT. The park seemed to have mostly long term campers, but all looked neat and well maintained. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were exceptionally clean. We had full hookups to include cable and Internet. Both worked very well. The local saloon/grill is in walking distance and has a lot of character. Recommend if nothing more than to take a couple of pics and drink a coke at the saloon. This is not a destination campground however if you know the area, I'm sure their are some hiking and sightseeing to pursue. We would stay again! Passport America discount applied. Excellent value. - Travel Talk

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. - Annie's Song

Rate is the Passport rate. Real easy on/off I-90. Nice level gravel sites and interior roads. Very close to I-90 but noise was not a problem. Rate includes Wi-Fi,cable, and 50 amp. We did not use the cable, used our satellite dish. I wanted to wash the bugs off the front of the rig and asked if I could rinse with my hose. Was told if I used the hose I must pay the $10 charge to wash your rig. I could and did wash off the bugs using the bucket method. My Verizon smart phone said "no service" but our regular cell showed one bar and worked. This park works nice for an overnight stop. The population of Reed Point is about 100 and the closest grocery store is 17 miles. - RalphA
