We stayed here in our 5th wheel camper. Reserved a "pull through" site and was told it was plenty large enough for our 34 ft 5th wheel. First of all, the site was only a couple of feet longer than our rig and I feared my rig would be hit by another camper driving by. The site was so narrow that I had to adjust my position multiple times just to make the rig fit so I could extend my slide outs. The site was very unlevel--it took 3 inches of lift on the left side to get the rig level. With the slides extended the fit was so close on the sides that I almost stepped on my neighbor's dog when I hooked up my electric cord. In summary, I could understand all of this if I was paying $25 a night, but at $66 a night---after a 10% discount---it was very poor. Sites are too small, too close together, too short, and very over priced. I would not stay here again! Not recommended. - chilkateagle

This is small, basic RV park located close to Gardiner and the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. It is between Hwy 89 and the Yellowstone river, but there was no road noise. The price is high due to its location. Roads are gravel and in good condition. Sites are also gravel, level, close together, with a small patch of dried grass in between, and of moderate length, with FHU and 30 or 50 amp. The utilities all worked well although the WiFi was slow. There are back-in sites along the river and pull-through sites in the middle. The bathhouses and laundry were clean and conveniently located. There is no river access and very little space to walk a large dog. It is okay for a short stay. - JoyceM

Beautiful small park located directly on the Yellowstone River, just outside the North entrance to Yellowstone National Park. We choose a back in site in order to get one right on the river (which was not guaranteed, but we got it!). The site was very level, had nice grass and a picnic table and was located right on the river, a great view from the dinette window! We also had a lovely and fragrant flowering tree that we smelled the entire week. Hookups worked great, location was phenomonal, loved the laundry equipment, there was plenty of friendly staff present at all times and I felt this was a great value. Would have loved to have had a fenced dog park or walking trails and had to angle the tow into the spot to get it off the street, but no cpmplaints here! - GeorgiePorgie

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

We spent a week here to explore the north parts of Yellowstone. It is a perfect location, walking distance to town and 5 min to the northeast entrance. We had a deluxe site. Ours had a good amount of room. But others in our row did not always. Sit fit our 34' MH just fine. Saw some bigger units as well. There was separate parking for our toad, but it was only about 10 yards away. Good utilities. Not so good WiFi. Easy to connect but very weak speeds. Outstanding and friendly staff. Pet area is small but functional. There are some sites with good views, it most are normal views. There are two levels. I thought the lower level spots were very close together but had some of the better views. Good Verizon coverage. Elk walking around in the evenings. Nice big laundry facility. We would stay here again. - Magnum34

Beautiful park with wide sites and lots of grass. Staff very friendly and loved the Elk wandering through the camp sites in the early evening. Would definitely stay here again. - Down River

A good place to stay for North end of Yellowstone. Very clean if a bit close together. lawn between each gravel space was mowed. Would stay again if in the area. - Tireman9

A hidden gem 30 miles south of Bozeman about a mile off hwy 191. Scenic and quiet is what you get at this class Forst Service campground. It has sites that are in shade part of the day, but the sun peaks through too. All the sites are next to Swan Creek which will sing you to sleep each night. We had a 30' rig (tip to tail) and had no problems with out site, but I wouldn't recommend anything much bigger. Dry camping, no cell service at all, but a gorgeous place to recharge. Campground host kept the sites very clean. Note the road in is a one lane gravel with pullouts. - UTTransplant

This is a small US Forest Service Park right along side highway 191. The sites on the river side of the highway would be best (sites 10-15), though I'm sure all the sites are affected by the loud highway noise during the day. The traffic did subside at night, but started again at daylight. The campsites are partly shady, not very level, and not very open, as the undergrowth is very thick. The interior road is paved and easy to navigate. We wouldn't stay again, due to the noise and nowhere to walk from the campground. - sail2blue

The campground is conveniently situated near the Mammoth Hot Springs and provides a spectacular view. In the evening, elk wander around the campground, providing excellent photo opportunities. However, not having a generator, we really missed having power. It got very cold at night. We would probably not return to this campground because of the lack of hookups. - John A Guderian

Park was a great value. Very quiet! Very nice people running the campground. We had truck problems and they allowed us to stay beyond checkout time without a charge while the truck was serviced in town. No reservations, first come, first served. The campground did not fill up the night we arrived, August 29th, but during peek summer hours need to arrive early. (See other reviews). One of the few Yellowstone parks that fit large rigs. We have a 38 Ft. Fifth wheel. - Leocamp

We stayed here 4 nights and are happy campers. We were visited by the elk herd 3 times during our stay. The days were warm, nights quite cool never used the A/C did use the heat in the AM to take the edge off. This is a first come first serve campground and the sites usually are full by noon. The booking shack opens @ 8AM. The line starts to form much earlier than that however. We arrived @ 10:30AM on a Saturday and got one of the last remaining sites. The roads are narrow so care must be exercised. There were all class units seen during our stay HDT & MDT May be iffy due to height. Our 13' 1" unit came through unscathed. This is a great location to tour the upper portion of Yellowstone National Park. There can be a faint sulfur odor depending on wind direction. We would stay here again. - SCClockDr

I hate to rate this park outstanding (because we'd never get in again) but since we live so far away, I have to! The staff and owners go over the top to make you feel welcome and assist in anyway that they can.
We're small (25') and didn't get close to the river but still loved this campground. 2 minute walk and we were on a bench right in front of the river. Some of the nicest bath houses ever. Exceptionally clean, modern and very functional. The only complaint (and it's minor), I wish all shower facilities had paper towels for you to dry off your shower shoes and other things, so you're not putting them back wet in your bag.
They had a community campfire where they provided chairs and you were welcome to bring your adult beverage if you wanted. Just lovely! This is a very nice campground and I would highly recommend it! - Cinzia

We spent two nights at Yellowstone River Edge RV park on our way from Gillette, WY to Glacier National Park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This park is located on the Yellowstone River about 15 miles south of Livingston and is very well maintained. The staff who operate it are a great team who make you feel welcome when you arrive and help get you to and in your site. Some of the interior roads were a little tight but we didn't have any trouble with our 43 foot motorhome. We loved it and would definitely return if we were in the area. - Amy Thyberg

Yellowstone Edge site 23. Good Sam $54 Easy to find. Roads easy to navigate for big rig. Very helpful staff. Appearance is very nice and clean. Utilities are well placed and worked well. Water pressure is very good. Sites are a bit short for big rigs with toads. Wifi is good. No cable or OTA channels. Traffic noise is annoying. At bit pricey. I would stay again. - FSUWizard

We stayed here for two nights and it was lovely, far from the bustle of tourist-y Yellowstone. There are lots of trees and the sites are fairly level. We moved here after one night at the rv parking lot that is Fishing Bridge CG and were happy to give up full hookups for real camping. The vault bathrooms were very clean and well supplied. The campground hosts were on top of everything, including a black bear and her two cubs that came through one evening. We'd stayed here about 25 years ago and were delighted to find it was as good as we'd remembered it. - pdxcamper

Price was very good for a NPS CG in the middle of Yellowstone! Pretty CG that fills up very fast. No generators are allowed here. - Full-Time Roamers

Beautiful campground. Well treed. Away from road. Quiet. One has to cross a wood, 6 ton bridge. (The bridge is rated to 10 tons, but restricted to 6 tons.) Most sites are spacious. Very rough road in campground. Most pull through sites are not level. Site 35 is level but on the inside. Big rigs will find the campground tight. Inside sites require one to drive the "wrong way" to set up properly. Ask the campground hosts (volunteers) if you can drive the other way. They will close the road or drive in front of you. The Park Rangers will not let you drive the "wrong way." The Park Rangers will not allow most Class A motorhomes to cross the bridge (as most are over 6 tons). However, you will see Class A motorhomes in the campground. No dump station. No generators. No showers. We would stay here again. - FTRVTC

This small park is right on the Gallatin River and we could sit in our living quarters and gaze out at the river. Owners very friendly and there are cabins in this location as well. - DRBurns
