3 Parks near Columbus, Montana
Sep 2015 - $1.00
Totally free and along a river. The people were nice and sites were very large and well spaced. There is water, but no dump and the bathrooms are very basic but it is definitely priced right. The campground was a bit overgrown and definitely needed some TLC, but the price was great and certainly good for a short stay. My AT&T cell coverage was very good. No wi-fi and there is a train track behind the campground and the occasional train did go by. - Lee and Trace

A city park that should be a model for all small towns! Over 30 sites - many pull through. They have a caretaker who will greet you shortly after arrival and provide you with an envelope to make a donation - I encourage you to do so to keep this area open.
You are welcome to stay up to 10 days. It is all non-reservable and no electric. There is water along side the bathroom building accessible by hose (you provide the hose!) It is safe and well kept. There are sites along side the river (Yellowstone River?)
Great proximity to town. The McDonalds has at least 2 tables with electric (if you need to charge things up!) There are two restaurants in town worth visiting - the 307 Bar and Grill and the Cafe. The IGA market is new and quite well stocked.
Columbus is about 40 miles west of Billings and is a far better place to stay instead of staying in Billings itself. - alansills

Free camping. No hook ups. No frills but adequate spaces, some pull through. Was quiet, easy to find and get in and out. City worker came by with a sheet of rules and envelope for a donation if we chose. Nice of community to provide this campground, would support them if we were through here again. Free firewood available. - abqnm

Quoted us a price for electric hookup that was lower than the full service hookup, but it turned out that the only space given us was right next to the freeway and very loud. The whole place is right next to freeway. When we asked if we could take a space further away because the place was almost completely empty, she said she would have to charge us the full hookup rates which were a lot more. When we said we would need to think about it, she told us to hurry up as she had better things to do! The place was small, well worn, and right next to freeway noise so we decided to continue down the road. Actually, we were so tired we may have stayed even for additional expense, but her attitude and rudeness made up our mind. - Fidchik

Overnight stay and that's about all this park is good for. Small park with 44 sites, some back-in, most pull through. Rough road entering to all dirt park. Some shade and very windy when we stayed. Did not use bathrooms but did look at them and they were very clean. Would stay here again if I'm tired. - Tracy Bounder

We stayed here one weeknight in mid-July. We had a level, gravel, FHU, pull-through site. The park is well laid out with 3 rows of pull-through sites and 1 row of back-in sites. This sites are adequate size and there are some trees. There is no cable TV, but we were able to get satellite reception and their 802.11 network was OK for our purposes. While I am not one who normally gushes about immaculate bathrooms, these were among the cleanest I've ever seen in any RV park or campground. The laundry was 3 of each machine and relatively cheap. There is nothing recreational in the park. The owner (an 81 year old woman) seems to do everything. There are gas stations and a couple fast food places across the interstate - less than a 10 minute walk. - Jerry S
