This is an older park, with sites pretty close together and a bit worn down. The person that greeted us was very friendly and the store was decently stocked for a camp store. This is a great place for an overnight stay, but I don't think the train whistles would let me stay more than a night.
This is kind of a hard place to find, we drove right past it, circled four miles around to the exact same spot until we noticed a tiny little sign for the camp.
I saw some pretty decent sized rigs here so I think that even though the spots are close together, they are more than accommodating length-wise. A little tight getting in and out of the spots, but nothing too bad.
The trains are really the main detractor from this, but you can't get away from them at any of the Bozeman RV parks from what I understand, so apparently this is the best you will get. The trains run pretty much all day and a good part of the night and it's pretty close to the camp.
I saw plenty of people that seem to either live here or have camped for a good while (our neighbor had been there a couple weeks), so those trains don't bother everyone.
Honestly the only really "bad" thing about this place is the trains. When reviewing a camp site I take into account how "nice" a place is to stay as well as everything else, the trains make this a bit less "nicer" than other places, but doesn't mean the campground itself is bad.
I do, however, think that $45 per night for full hookups at this particular spot was pretty high. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
When you get off of I-90 look for what appears to be a steep driveway RIGHT NEXT to the overpass. Their sign is a little hard to see and we missed it, but it's almost a fork in the road where the uphill drive goes to the camp and the other continues on the local access road.

Gravel roads and sites. Our site was sloped and situated next to a big spruce, so we had to maneuver the rig to get satellite access. Power was situated well forward and sewer all the way at the back, so it was a bit tricky. Good water pressure. Two bars signal strength on the wifi, so when we could log in, it was unusable. Our hotspot worked fine. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Unmarked entrance is uphill between two posts. Exiting is tricky with blind view of other roads and 13 foot 3 inch Interstate overpass will cause big rigs concern. Sites are close so that pull thrus neighbor's table is close to sewer drop and your RV. First time in all our years of rving, it took an hour to level which we later determined that leveling is a problem on most sites because the park is built on a hill. There are great views of the valley. Noise is minimal except for the freight trains horns. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Motorhome.
Museum of the Rockies is a definite as well as many restaurants close to museum and downtown.

Good park. Had seen several reviews pointing out the low archway over the entrance into the park. It has been removed! There still are some low limbs right at the office that they have clearly worked on. I opted to drive through the very large dump site just to the left. Had also seen in the reviews (and in person!!) there is a low underpass where you get off the interstate. It's marked 13'3" (Will try to post a picture.) You want to come off the south side if that's too low for you. Next exit going W is 3 miles with no underpass and the next exit going east is 3 miles as well with an unmarked underpass. Looks plenty high and I went under it with feet to spare in my 45' MH at 12'7". So underpass is an easy work around. Park has no control over that regardless!!! Park is very convenient to Bozeman and why we stayed here. There are train tracks across I-90 with a lot of traffic, but did not bother us. The park is adequate but sites are pretty close together. We could put out our slides but not the awning. We could easily hear the family next door. Also woke up our first morning to a sprinkler running right at our door and nice puddle. I found the young lady moving sprinklers and she was very appropriate and fixed the problem. Pool looked nice and was pretty busy. We did not use. Overall pretty good place to stop and convenient to Bozeman. We were here 6 nights. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Motorhome.
We had a great lunch at the Co-Op in Bozeman.

Our usual stop in this area and it will continue to be.
This campground is further from the interstate than the other one in the area and quieter as a result. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

About 5 miles from downtown Bozeman. Site was a bit narrow; flat on top, but more of an angle out the steps. Very clean restrooms and laundry. Checked out the showers, but we didn't use them. Our friends were in Space 8 which was wonderful. Lots of grass and a picnic table. We also had a table, but not near as much grass. Easy in and out. Trash is as you exit. Beautiful views of the mountains. Pool was always busy, and it looked very nice. Lots of trees. We would definitely come back here. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Costco, Target, Walmart, Kohl's, Home Depot and Lowe's....pretty much anything you want. The Pickle Barrel up on College by the campus is amazing. Great subs. Downtown has loads of little shops and a great quilt store. Must see is the Museum of the Rockies. Three Forks is the headwaters of the Missouri River and Yellowstone 90 minute drive there. Gallatin Canyon is beautiful.

We were just spending the night, so did not take advantages of the amenities.
The park is on a hill, so I was a bit surprised at the level of road noise - not terrible, but present. There are several trains that pass by at odd hours.
They have a nice off-leash area for dogs and the staff are very pleasant. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Signage to reach the park is not good. After you exit the expressway you will wonder where to go. It is straight up the hill between the 2 large wooden posts to the right of the temporary sign. Do not go down the "dead end" road. On top is a nice, flat campground. If you are a tall vehicle (5th wheel or big rig) be aware that the trees have not been trimmed in front of the office. They crashed into the side and top of our rig. I could not get the front door open. When I mentioned it at check-in they did not seem interested in resolving the problem. Our site (#1) is a large pull-through with plenty of grass and privacy (on the corner). The back-in spaces are without grass for the most part and are very small. The site was level. The sewer hookup is below grade and difficult to attach to as evidenced by the mess left at the sewer connection next to us. They have a nice pool and playground. It is a good location for visiting Bozeman. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Motorhome.
Downtown Bozeman is very quaint, with lots of coffee shops, boutiques, etc.

We spent an overnight here on the way east and also when returning west. It's conveniently located to the highway, and although close there is little highway noise. But there is train horn noise until late in the evening.
The campsite is older and space is tight for using slide outs and awnings. Space is also critical when entering a space to park or exiting with your RV. And the spaces are so close together that extended awnings almost touch extended slide out rooms.
Utility hook ups are fairly conveniently located. There is "wifi," but the signal is usually weak due to the many campers using their system. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We only spent one night here. Sewer connection was at end of site and difficult if not impossible to level coach at this spot. Children under 14 could not even leave the campsite without and adult. Was told could not even wash windshield at site. Will not be returning here. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Motorhome.

There is an archway just beyond the exit ramp from I-90 that leads to the campground. We barely were able to go under it. Our rig is 13 feet 2 inches and our radio antenna hit the top of the arch. On the right side of the pole were faded numbers that were barely readable that stated the archway had a height restriction of 13' 3'. Way to close for comfort. If that was not bad enough, the freeway underpass going west bound had a height restriction of 13 feet 2 inches. Had we known about the height restrictions we would not have stayed at this campground.
The interior roads within this campground and the sites were on packed gravel. All of the sites were definitively not level. Our site required 5 inches of wood to get our rig leveled. We never experience this much trouble leveling (front to back - side to side) in a private campground before.
The back-in sites (E/W only) were not very long. We were told in the office that they usually accommodate a 25 foot rig. We were not told this when we talked to them on the phone. Their pull-thru sites (FHU) can accommodate just about any size rig. There were a number overgrown trees and hanging branches on some of these sites.
The campground was full and it looked it.
The electrical voltage was good - hovering around 121 volts. The utility box was on the appropriate side. All sites had 20/30/50 amp service.
The outdoor pool was heated and clean. The bathroom and showers were also clean and very usable.
The campground had Wi-Fi but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone work reasonable well.
The height restrictions are enough for us not to return to this campground.
We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
The American Computer and Robotics Museum is very interesting
The archway into the campground is 13 feet 3 inches. I-70 underpass going westbound is 13 feet 2 inches

The sites are pretty close to one another. We were in site one and our neighbors sewer connection was right by our steps. A lot of the sites are uneven and require extra blocks/boards to level properly. As mentioned before if you leave the park and want to go west on I-90 the bridge restriction is just over 13' so a lot of RV's can not clear this.
When we arrived the tree limbs by the office were way to low. I brushed against them. I told staff and they did trim them a bit but really needed more attention. Local folks have access to the pool so at times there are more folks here with their kids that are not camping. I would not stop here again. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Right off let me post a BIG WARNING about getting to this CG. It sits right next to I-90, on the south side, and the underpass is TOO LOW for large RV's. If my son hadn't noticed the sign just before we went under I would have removed our a/c and other roof items. So you have to stay on the south side of I-90 to use this cg. We had to go east on the Interstate to the next exit and turn around and come back to get off on the south side.
OK the CG itself is excellent. Well landscaped with grass and lots of trees. Very clean and with moderately large pull thru sites. The people working there were pleasant. It's a bit pricey but not compared to the KOA in the area which was $65 with the KOA discount. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped for my son to visit Montana State University. There are lots of restaurants and other shopping opportunities in Bozeman. Yellowstone isn't that far away and we made a day trip visit.

Host and hostess were very friendly and accommodating. We had a back in site which slanted to the back. Sites are all gravel with no grass except if you were tent camping. View was great, there was a train you could hear but it was in the distance, kind of nice. We camped at Bear Canyon Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Just outside of Bozeman, MT right off I-90. Very easy to get to.
We didn't have sewer but water and electric were easy access. Close to Yellowstone and downtown Bozeman. Would stay there again.
