I was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful campground. Usually KOA's are very expensive but this one was very reasonable. We stayed at a water & electric site. - Smokinghawk49

This is the original KOA. Our price reflects parking in their premium (sites 1-6) section. Restrooms are "private" and each one is as nice as one would have in their home. If one has a stationary satellite dish, it may be difficult to get a signal. However, the Park's cable has a full array of channels. We have stayed here previously and would return when we are again in the area. - kurtk

Nicely landscaped park with paved streets, gravel sites. Premium sites have concrete patios with swings and new picnic tables, but they're very pricey in the summer. Usable wifi, until the park fills up. Good satellite access from our site. Clean pool. They've put in a new putt-putt course, but it's $5! We like this park for its cleanliness and access to both the river and downtown. - The Hilts

Watch out for big rocks at the entrance to this park. It is also not clear exactly where rigs should park for checkin at the office. Otherwise this is a nice park with trees, grass and level paved pads. Neither picnic tables nor fire rings were provided, but the grass was lush. Park WiFi worked pretty well, but frequently requires a time-sensitive code that limits the number of devices. This park does not recycle. Service was friendly and we were permitted to have a package of mail forwarded for pickup on arrival. - The Borgs

Right off I-90 so a good place to stop for the night, if ya don't mind the railroad trains & whistles. The park is older but well kept and each site is all asphalt and level with plenty of space, but all back ins so you will need to unhook. Cable and internet worked well and the bathrooms were newer and very clean. Not an area you want to walk around in so you need your car but the park is safe & secure. Good value for this area and we will return when passing through again. - Camaraderie

Very friendly staff. All the sites are back-in with parking next to the rig. That worked well for us as the rig provided the shade for our relaxing afternoon outside. We couldn't get satellite because of the trees which we didn't mind as we enjoyed the shade. There are two laundry rooms and costs $1.25 per top load and $1.75 per front load to wash. Dryer costs 25 cents for about 6 minutes. Light sleepers might have problem with the train whistles late at night or early in the morning. Wifi connection was good during our 5-night stay. We really enjoyed this park and will definitely come back again. - gartail

Billings RV parks are way overpriced. But as one reviewer put it...They charge high prices "because they can".
Yellowstone River Park was nice. The spaces are a bit tight. Two RV's per site, opposite facing. Many of the sites were taken by long-term/permanent residents. Propane tanks, wheel covers, even a couple attached decks. It's the owner's right to sell long-term sites, but we travelers would like the bigger spaces, too.
The dog run needed better cleaning. Upon arrival, we called and asked if someone could pick up the unpicked up poop. They sent someone out, but it would be nice if 1) dog owners would be more respectful and pick up after their dogs and 2) the management would ensure the cleaner-up-er person did a better job. We actually watched one morning when the gentleman in the golf cart drove up, opened the poop disposal, closed the poop disposal and drove away. He didn't empty the container and he didn't pick up any poop. One morning a nice lady, while watching her dog, actually picked up poop from other dogs. Our site was across the road from the pet area, so we got a good view of all the happenings.
The check-in ladies were very nice. We would stay here again if if the area. - rlhoge

After reading prior reviews, I was really unsure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised the moment we pulled in. The entire appearance is first class, neat, manicured lawns and gardens, and tons of antiques to decorate the grounds. Management was great to work with. Had to switch sites last minute. Not a problem. Nearly every site is a pull through. Very level. Wide paved roads in perfect shape. Gravel sites but very neat, level. The most sites are setup as pull thru's with 2 RV's to a site facing opposite directions so utilities are on the outer sides of the site. With today's big 5th wheels and motorhomes, it is candidly a bit close. But we had no issues with slides or neighbors. Everyone was very respectful. Beautiful mature Cottonwood trees throughout the park pruned with very high canopies so no problems there. Our Satellite worked just fine. Very convenient to Billings downtown and the interstate without any noise issues. It is a very well run place. It is a bit on the pricey side even for all it affords campers. But it is competitive with other clean, well maintained campgrounds in the area. I would definitely stay here again. I'd stay longer if it weren't for the cost. A few days to a week, definitely try this campground. - DMcKitt

I am not one to complain. But this is definitely an exception! Expensive! Cramped/shared sites! When we checked in, the staff was wonderful, the store lovely, but the rate was a real shocker. Ok, we figured it must be worth it. We drove to our site, following the park map, and there's someone in our spot! After introductions, and polite conversation, we both realized we're sharing the site. Ok, this is going to be a real challenge. We both positioned as far forward as possible, while still allowing for utility hookup. Face to face, doorway to doorway, with just enough room to walk through. Our slides were able to be used, but just barely. Fortunately, we were both very experienced at maneuvering our rigs. Our new best friend and site partner agreed with us, that sharing a site should result in half price rates. I've been RVing for decades, and never seen such a thing.
The entertainment for the remainder of the evening, was watching rigs pull in, set up & spread out, and then hastily have to make room for the surprise guests, that are sharing their space. Fun times. Perhaps ok for smaller units, but big rigs should not be squeezed together like that.
The park is not directly on the river; you must hike quite a distance, through several dry washes, and narrow weedy trails (bring bug spray). Nice RV park, pretty gardens, and nice antique farm equipment display. But unless they convert the spaces to single occupancy, especially for the big rigs, we won't stay here again. - Luv to Travel

You are lucky if you find this park on the first approach. There are no signs. You will see a blue camping arrow on the 437 exit stop sign. Nothing after that until you realize you better call the park. The park will tell you, you are going to Billings. It turns out the park is at the Sinclair gas station by the stop sign. You will pull into a tiny, weary, old park made for 26' trailers. The sites are gravel and level. The electric is good for 30 amps. We are fortunate enough to have a 34', three slide motor home. We had a snug fit. We unhooked our tow and parked it in front as not to impede traffic. There are permanent people living in 26' trailers. It is a comfortable park. Grass but no shade. - mycelia

This park is closed for the season and camping is prohibited by signs. The web site for the park shows it as open Memorial Day through Labor Day. The park is across the road from a large refinery and BNSF railroad. This review w ill say we camped in a motorhome, but we didn't stay at all. - Jay Rutherford
Aug 2010 - $12.00
There was 3 different pricings $12 for dry camping, $15 for electric only sites (said to be 3 but the one we found looked not safe for electric hookup) and $20 for electric/water site which was the majority of the sites. There was a shower house. We chose to dry camp. Said to be 7 day max stay, but some looked to have been there longer with their big fridges outside, workers with their campers and tents all laid out, there was no one attending the window once you finally find the office, shower house was not kept very clean, some of the ones staying there looked a little on the iffy side. We did not feel comfortable allowing the kids (15 12 10) to venture even to the shower house alone. We stayed here 2 nights 1 day out of necessity of a stop over but wouldn't stay there again. Did not feel safe walking to the shower house due to some of the people staying there. Guys and Girls going to the same side together and my son walked into the men room while a couple was doing their thing in the shower, not impressed esp. when they told him it was OK he could watch, fortunately my son (10) came back out. Park was quiet enough but wasn't willing to leave the rig unattended. - moosemama3

We spent 5 nights here holed up over the 4th of July holiday. 30amp service and water for $15 a night. Lots of mosquitoes. The lots are irregular in size & layout, but they're OK. Some will easily take big rigs, some are pull through. Bathroom wasn't clean. There were 2 or 3 homeless individuals & families living there in tents or small older trailers, they were very nice & friendly, no problem. CG across the Yellowstone River from water treatment plant & refinery but no odors, a little noise. Some train traffic but not bad. - big greg
