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. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

1-Beartooth Pass is a good day's adventure.

2-On the way to Beartooth Pass, you must allow some time to visit Red Lodge. Very cool old western town with great restaurants and shopping.

3- Moss Mansion in Billings.

4-Local Farm League baseball in an excellent stadium downtown Billings to name a few things.

Spaces are shared end to end spaces. I could cook dinner for my neighbor and pass it through our windows. Forget putting out your awning or sitting outside. Half the cable channels are "fuzzy" and you can't get satellite. Overpriced, jammed in, would not stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Pull-through sites have been divided into two sites. Each one now holds two RVs. There is no space, once the site is occupied, to set up any outdoor seating. Water and electric worked. CATV was spotty at best. Channels missing with poor reception on some. WiFi worked well until the the park started to fill up, then it became questionable whether you could get access. Considering the cost per night I would expect much better conditions. I would probably continue down the road before ever staying here again. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night. During our 2 week travels this is by far the most expensive to stay at. I spoke with fellow campers and it was the same topic of conversation. Not much to choose from in the area and I guess they know it. Had a nice dog park that is enclosed. The showers and bath rooms were clean and adequate. I've stayed at much nicer places for less but it worked for us. It was quiet at night. Spots were close in to others. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

May go down as the worst park we've ever stayed in. The pictures on Good Sam are not what you get. Those nice looking spaces are for the permanent campers. What you get is a shared side by side space with another RV that puts you way too close for comfort between RVs on either side. We had to pull our 5th Wheel all the way to the front of our space in order to reach all connections and then park in back of it, and as close as possible in order to fit. It was so bad and so cramped we left after just one night, even though we had booked two. Other campers did the same. We had to BACK out of our space because there was not enough clearance between the tree and other vehicles. The motorhome one space over had to do the same to get out. Way way over priced. Although the staff was friendly and they have nice green areas around the perimeter, we would Never stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I wish we had stayed in a cheap hotel. The sites are so close together you can reach out and touch your neighbors coach and have to be careful of slideouts. Forget putting out awning. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Over priced, could not open awning because it would be touching your neighbors trailer. Very nice looking resort at entrance, cable worked good. WiFi was weak at our spot and for the price we paid I wish we would have tried another CG down the street. Way to much to pay for an over nighter. Look for something cheaper way over priced.

Yellowstone RV was an ok stop in Billings MT. We stayed two nights. In the evenings and early morning the Men's restroom was very dirty. So much so my husband wouldn't shower. The over all park was neat and tidy and we enjoyed walking the grounds. The sites were on top of each other. Two trailers per site. We felt cramped and were not able to sit out with out awning open for fear of hitting the other trailer. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

A fine RV park. Very clean and well maintained. We spent several nights of quiet rest there. Morning commuters are a bit loud, but overall, the park is great. Lots of amenities and the city offers plenty of shopping and entertainment as well. Easy access to this park, but fuel isn't nearby. We'd stay here again without question.

Tips for other Campers:

Little Big Horn battlefield is 50 miles south. Billings has several nice museums, and the landscape is wonderful. Lots of shopping with major stores in town. Nice guided tour of historic mansion, and wonderful walking trails along the vast rim rocks. Extensive development on the city's western flank provide an array of shopping and dining locations to suit any tastes.

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 camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
