You would think that once it is after Labor Day and they close the hot tubs and pool that they would lower the price. NOPE! The last time I was here was five years ago in summer, and I thought $48 was ridiculous, now it's $65 before Good Sam discount and bed tax (7%). For this price, I expect maid service and a mint on my pillow! Again the issue with the photo ID. The clerk didn't even ask for "photo ID," just said, "Need to see your driver's license." I held my ground and clerk finally consented to viewing my passport as it "had a number on it that they have to write down." This is the only RV park I have stayed in that has ever insisted on photo ID, I don't know what the issue is. And again, the "chumminess" of the sites. Thank goodness it wasn't crowded. If someone would have been placed in the site beside me, it would have been tight, and I'm just a Class C, no tow car. Most RV parks in Montana close down October 1, so this late in the year, you take what you can get. The clerk did mention that this park stays open year round, but after October 15, no one is in the office, it's just self registration (if anyone is interested....). To get to this park, you have to weasel off the interstate down a narrow road, but the signs are marked. One good point, the clerk was good about explaining the itemization of charges (they only give you a credit card receipt with the total, no itemization). The clerk didn't give me the usual "are you nuts" look (because people generally don't ask). I like to know how it itemizes. I'm lowering my rating to 6 (because of the "chumminess" of sites and price is just a bit much) from my previous one of 9 (and I must have been delirious to have given a 9 on the prior review!). We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice RV park with a lot of pull-thrus but most of these RV sites are shared with RV doors facing each other. Many of these sites are too narrow to use canopies depending how your neighbor is parked. Not on the Yellowstone River but on a creek that flows into the river. Expensive but there only two major campgrounds in town and both are busy. Pool and hot tub need updating and cleaning. Many people used these but we would not. Close to Billings downtown. Nice paved walking/biking trail about 1/2 mile away with river access.

We stayed overnight here. We had planned on staying longer but felt the rate was overpriced. We had no choice but to stay here as we were exhausted from our travels of the day. The pool was also not in working order. We would not stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First thing I will say is the place is a total rip-off for the price. The spaces are so cramped together it is pathetic. Most RV parks have a nice pull-through space with a little private area for you to pull your awning out and sit outside, not this place. Your awning can't come down because their pull-through spaces are "two-way" and they cram two rigs in the same spot facing opposite directions. Total, and I mean TOTAL RIP-OFF for 70 bucks a night. The little market is pretty useless, the staff so-so, but we really can't get over the way they cram their customers into very uncomfortable, cramped spaces. This is the poorest planned RV park we have ever seen. The ONLY good thing we will say about this park is the internet is really good in comparison to most RV parks. Other than that, it is well maintained, clean, and nicely landscaped. Guess they figured they should give something for ripping their customers off with the ridiculous prices and lack of "personal space". We would not stay here again if it were midnight, we were too tired to drive, and it was pouring rain. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Yes, mature trees and some grass. But the staff put us in a side by side site, doors facing each other. And they were no where near full. Like a tenement. And sewer placement is way in front, check all this if you stay here. On the plus side, good cable, wifi, Verizon signal strong and fairly quiet. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park with mature trees and some nice grass between sites. Good gravel pads, with 50 amp, water, sewer and cable. You can see that the pull-through sites were originally designed for two RV's side-by-side, but with modern trailers and slides they were using them as single sites while we were there. There is a large nature park with a trail back to the Yellowstone River at the back of the park. We walked back there several times and enjoyed the birds and the view. The Office/Store had a nice variety of trinkets and other things to buy. The park is very convenient to the highway and city, but it is quiet and feels secluded.

Great park. We liked it a lot and would highly recommend the short hike in the back down to the Yellowstone River. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a medical emergency while in this park and the staff was extremely helpful, kind, & generous in meeting our needs. Besides this, the park was beautifully landscaped, had well-trimmed large shade trees, ample space, and clean and well-kept grounds. All of the staff was not only courteous and accessible, but friendly. We will stay there again whenever we go through Billings, and would recommend it to anyone.

The park is clean and nice. Easy access for a 40 foot towing, but sites are VERY narrow with lots of big trees. Paved roads and level stone sites. Sewer in only some sites. You share power and water, whomever gets there first gets the 50 amp I guess. No room for awnings. Nice pet area. Quiet at night. For $50+ per night, I expect a full-hook-up, escort to site, curbside garbage p/u and a concrete patio. The KOA down the street looked like the sites were bigger when I drove through. The Wi-Fi here is awful and trees block satellite! My Verizon JetPak worked with no problems. When are campgrounds going to get out of the 90's, every person has at least two devices that need to be connected 24/7 to the internet? Next time I will go down the road one block and try them. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy to find, near I-90, and clean. We stayed one night. The first thing we noticed was that two sites share a common area that includes the water, power, grass area, and two picnic tables. All okay until about 10PM when a guest pulled into the site next to us and proceeded to set up their space. They used the entire common area to then prepare dinner and chat until 11PM! In the morning we had no picnic table for our breakfast as neighbor's stuff was on both tables. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

This park did not honor it's registration commitment. We reserved a 50A FHU and received email confirmation but upon arrival at our site found only 30A available. There is one 50A outlet per two side-by-side sites, and our neighbor was already using it. No resolution was offered by the campground. We also noticed the party arriving right behind us had to move sites, and they verified that it was because they reserved 50A but were placed on a site where it was not available. This will be a one stop campground for us. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campsites were very narrow with side by side hook-ups. When we extended our slides, there was just walking room between camping units. Sites were level. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here over Thanksgiving 2012, and again over Easter 2013. Clean, well manicured, and well maintained park with mature shade trees and attractive grounds. Both visits were in the off-season so little contact with staff. No worries, self-check-in works great. We unhook our car to manuever our 43' bus through the narrow turns on arrival and departure. We will return again. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Very tight fit campground, hard to maneuver a 40 footer in here. Sites were level enough and nice surroundings but overpriced for the cramped sites in the park. Nice laundry area. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The worst campground we have ever stayed in, and I cannot think of a single positive thing to say about our stay. Looked like the owner has doubled the number of sites by putting two sites where there used to be one site making it very crowded. We were next to another class A, and we couldn't both put out the small window awnings because they would touch; didn't even try the large awning. We came back from a long day trip to find that someone had turned our breaker off (it wasn't tripped) leaving us with a very hot RV. We talked to the owner who showed no concern whatsoever about the incident. The previous day the main breaker had tripped on our road due to overloading so we can only suspect that our breaker was turned off while we were gone to conserve power for the rest of the row. Thank goodness we didn't have a pet. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
