8 RV Parks near Cameron, Montana
Jun 2004 - $19.00
When we first saw this park, we wondered what we had gotten into. There were only six RV spaces, side by jowl, tacked on as an afterthought. But... location, location, location! We were the only RV in the park for several days. It was crisp, rustic, and quiet, except for the rushing Madison River about 50 feet down right under our rear bumper. Every morning we'd get up to fresh piles of deer and elk scat in the campground (to us, this is actually a positive thing). My retriever would jump out of the trailer and bound down the rocks to the chilly water, where he would swim against the current for five minutes and then come back refreshed. We'd drive into Yellowstone for the day, and return to have a great meal at the steakhouse next door. The toilets/showers were clean and spacious -- they actually belong to the on-site rustic furniture and souvenir store, which is a beautifully built log cabin. One day, we saw an actual cattle drive just across the river from us. I'm not a fisherman, but if I were, the place would have been even more fun. The sites here have absolutely no presence at all -- but the surroundings and the experience are spectacular. This is on my list of top five all-time favorite camping experiences. You can be sure I will go back to this camp if I ever get up to Montana again. - Bowman

We really enjoyed our stay here...we planned to visit Yellowstone for the next two days and this was a perfect spot to do it from. The campground was neat and clean, staff helpful, used the Passport America rate. No cell or wi-fi but that was okay since we were there for Yellowstone anyway. Enjoyed the bar/restaurant on Friday night. Neat place, would stay again. - Froggi Donna

Came here because it's a PA park, and the one in Ennis was so awful. The reviews here told us what to expect, and the remote mountain setting really is gorgeous. Yes, you won't find shade for the warm days, it's cold at night and usually windy too. Nothing much to do but fish or enjoy the views and peacefulness. Would have liked watching dvds or using the game room but the office was closed at 6pm, even though we reserved. No one around, so paid in the morning. Bathrooms exceptionally nice. NO CELL PHONE nor TV reception, but wifi worked well. Long pull-thrus but on slope. An okay stop between Ennis and Island Park, especially with the discount. Park still for sale, restaurant not open mid-week. - Annie's Song

This campground is in the beautiful Madison River valley with mountain views all around. It is north of West Yellowstone and 30 miles south of Cameron on US 287. Nice big office/lounge area with extensive free DVD library and bumper pool and shuffleboard games. Facilities were very clean. An excellent base camp for fly fishermen, they also have four large cabins. The restaurant and pub are open Thurs-Mon evenings. We ate there and enjoyed the food and the local patrons. We stayed 3 days. Passport America rate. - Sirius Designs

I guess that we've gotten spoiled by Wi-Fi and 30 amp service. We found the sites really tight, even for our skinny rig. They were also close together. The campground is in the national forest so you get that rustic feel although a highway to Yellowstone runs behind it. Washrooms were clean and showers were free. Cash only. - Thedogsma

We love this place and will be back in 2014. Beautiful setting. Tricky to get into site because of the trees. We would much rather have the trees than the paved parking lot sites that man RV parks have. Owners very nice. Can't wait it get back. Looks like 2014 rates have increased to $40. - washingtonrv

I have stayed here for the last three years. I find the CG clean and quite. The staff very friendly and helpful. I find that the prices in the Cafe' are consistent with other are eatery's in the area. The food is good and you get a Montana size order for your money. I recommend this CG for someone who are looking for a rustic CG without the noise and clutter of a more modern facility. - narcodog

This is a country park, about 20 miles from West Yellowstone, and price reflects a monthly rate. They have a boat ramp; the park is aimed mostly at fishermen, but is a nice place for a quiet retreat. the local chuckwagon put out good food and the Wi-Fi was upgraded while we were there, from horrible to very adequate. Spaces are close and gravel, but if the park's amenities suit you, it is quite nice. - inflt48

New manager rude and deceitful. Sites vary in price according to the manager's whims. Electricity goes from 90 volts to 100 volts. Sites are not kept up well, they are muddy and uneven, no fire rings and no picnic tables. Laundry is unavailable to campers between 7am and 4pm because the staff uses the one washer and dryer to clean the motel linen. - yankeeflyer1

This is a lovely park, with great friendly staff. General store has all your needs in case you forgot something. It's the view that will make you want to extend your stay. The lake is full of trout and the sunsets are divine, but then of course this is Montana. Snow is melting rapidly, so there is the odd area of mud which is expected. 18 miles from the Yellowstone west gate which makes for a great day trip or three. The town of West Yellowstone has lots going on with a market, lots of restaurants and all the t-shirt shops and fishing shops you will need. - savoy312

Red Cliff National Forest Campground is one of our nearby, "go to" weekend campgrounds. They have a loop of electric hookup sites most of which are reservable (recreation.gov), but with a generous number of "walk up" sites available.
The campground is on the Gallatin River, which separates from the campground from Highway 191. There are two loops, one with electric-served sites, and another for standard sites. The electric sites are in a lightly forested area, with the regular sites looping around an open, grassy space. The latter loop was completely redone by the Forest Service last year, and is beautiful, with large, mostly back-in sites. There is water available for RVs, but no dump. All the sites have fire rings and robust, fixed-in-place picnic table. Site separation is superb. Most sites are very level.
Big Sky is about 10 miles away, and there is a pleasant rustic restaurant/bar about a mile away (great pie!).
One of our faves, and an example of why the Forest Service should be better funded so this caliber campground could be available more commonly. - jclifton

Simple campground along Gallatin river. Some hook up sites but we liked the others better. Gravel roads and sites. Pit toilets. Nice space between most sites. Great stop on the way to Yellowstone. - 2blondes

This is an excellent forest service cg. Liked it so much last year, we reserved an Electric site for a weekend, but the $9 fee was unsettling. However, the base rate was just $24, then half off for Passes. Nice place to relax, with no internet, cell,etc. But the daytime highway noise gets loud. No dump station, but 2 water spigots available. Go to Big Sky for a cell signal, stop at the Hungry Moose for great eats, and many recycling bins nearby. - Annie's Song

40 per night for "lakeside" uneven and bumpy dirt/grass area. It's more expensive in Yellowstone, thus an ok deal. Didn't like long screws laying along basketball court where people drive their cars very nearby. Also the marina area needs to be cleaned up some. Stuff laying around. No soap in the public restroom. Only one roll of toilet paper. The other dispenser was left empty.
They charge 1 dollar extra for purchase less than 10 dollars if use credit card. Products in store are expensive. People seemed nice. Lots of people from other countries frequent this campground, which was refreshing, and fun to talk with them.
It's beautiful here, though they could use less lights at night. Ruins stargazing, to some degree. - mynyel

Beautiful views of Henry's Lake. WiFi is very poor. Verizon was not much better. Fantastic sunrises and sunsets. Boat launch and boat rentals. 15 miles from West Yellowstone. - g peter

The park is located on Henry's lake. The park rents docks and there is a boat launch ramp. The pull through sites are dirt and are not level. I was able to level my motorhome ok with the levelers. The 50 amp power was ok at between 106 and 110 volts. Water pressure was a little low at about 40 lbs. I was able to get satellite tv with a remote dish. This park is a low cost alternative to the much higher priced West Yellowstone RV parks. This park is about 16 miles from West Yellowstone. The WIFI worked 5 out of the 7 days we stayed here. We would stay here again. - pcguy

Full Hook Up sites with open sky for TV reception. Verizon reception good. Free WiFi that works well. Neat bathrooms. Nice, roomy sites, each with a concrete pad, picnic table and grass surrounding. Very helpful management. Easy access, right off Hwy 287. Highway noise was limited and didn't disturb our sleep. A great price for 15 minutes away from Yellowstone National Park. Great views of Lake Hebgen. - TJElser

This park is about 15 minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone. The office staff were helpful and friendly. We had a site right on the lake and it was very nice. I judge a park primarily on the surroundings and appeal because we don't use the bathroom or laundry facilities. The lake is very picturesque and my dog was able to go swimming and have lots of fun. I wish it a was not a back in site because our front window only faced other RV's.
I am very glad we did not stay in town because the parks there are essentially parking lots with no room.
I highly recommend. - Ksmilner

The staff very friendly/helpful from my first contact via phone thru my check-in. Campground clean with level gravel sites. Campground located on beautiful Hebgen Lake. - a_d travelers_2
