7 RV Parks near Laurel, Montana
Aug 2009 - $27.00
You are lucky if you find this park on the first approach. There are no signs. You will see a blue camping arrow on the 437 exit stop sign. Nothing after that until you realize you better call the park. The park will tell you, you are going to Billings. It turns out the park is at the Sinclair gas station by the stop sign. You will pull into a tiny, weary, old park made for 26' trailers. The sites are gravel and level. The electric is good for 30 amps. We are fortunate enough to have a 34', three slide motor home. We had a snug fit. We unhooked our tow and parked it in front as not to impede traffic. There are permanent people living in 26' trailers. It is a comfortable park. Grass but no shade. - mycelia

Small park good for overnights. Some seasonal workers living in the park. Park is connected to a truck stop that has a good restaurant. The park is close to Billings Mt. Some smell from the refinery in the evening lasts about ten to twenty minutes. They have weekly and monthly rates. - REBSCATS

This park is closed for the season and camping is prohibited by signs. The web site for the park shows it as open Memorial Day through Labor Day. The park is across the road from a large refinery and BNSF railroad. This review w ill say we camped in a motorhome, but we didn't stay at all. - Jay Rutherford

There was 3 different pricings $12 for dry camping, $15 for electric only sites (said to be 3 but the one we found looked not safe for electric hookup) and $20 for electric/water site which was the majority of the sites. There was a shower house. We chose to dry camp. Said to be 7 day max stay, but some looked to have been there longer with their big fridges outside, workers with their campers and tents all laid out, there was no one attending the window once you finally find the office, shower house was not kept very clean, some of the ones staying there looked a little on the iffy side. We did not feel comfortable allowing the kids (15 12 10) to venture even to the shower house alone. We stayed here 2 nights 1 day out of necessity of a stop over but wouldn't stay there again. Did not feel safe walking to the shower house due to some of the people staying there. Guys and Girls going to the same side together and my son walked into the men room while a couple was doing their thing in the shower, not impressed esp. when they told him it was OK he could watch, fortunately my son (10) came back out. Park was quiet enough but wasn't willing to leave the rig unattended. - moosemama3

We spent 5 nights here holed up over the 4th of July holiday. 30amp service and water for $15 a night. Lots of mosquitoes. The lots are irregular in size & layout, but they're OK. Some will easily take big rigs, some are pull through. Bathroom wasn't clean. There were 2 or 3 homeless individuals & families living there in tents or small older trailers, they were very nice & friendly, no problem. CG across the Yellowstone River from water treatment plant & refinery but no odors, a little noise. Some train traffic but not bad. - big greg

Positives: beautiful, mature park with large grassy areas between sites and large trees. Very broad, paved streets and sites. Level, good utilities, clean, our site was satellite friendly, helpful office staff, close to diesel gas station, quiet, safe. Negatives: I didn't want to write this review like I don't want to tell anyone about my favorite fishing spot. This is a great park at a very good price. - Kid911

Paved roads and sites. Level and utilities worked well. Easy access from I90. Half of the sites have good satellite. Lush grassy lawn between sites. No picnic tables or fire rings. - hug448844

Very nice woman in office helped us secure a site we could easily back into without needing to unhook. All sites are backins and no pull thrus. I wouldn't say this is a big rig friendly site, but it could probably work in a pinch. This was a good spot to stay over night; many sites had permanent residents in trailers. Good wifi and cable. Not much for kids to do or dog walks available. Railroad tracks are nearby and we did hear the train but with A/C on we didn't notice much noise. - Runner in the Night

For $53 we got a mud and grass back in site infested with Canadian geese. This cg is not an overnight stop. Lots of family activities. Watch out for the kids on their 3&4 wheel scooters. When the folks next door showed up to park in their even muddier site, they had a hard time finding a dry spot. Called the front desk. They said they would send help. No one ever showed up. Several other campers were held up until the guy finally got situated.
Power pedestals are poorly maintained. Dump station at entrance. - CharlieB

Really pretty park. Nicely maintained. Our site was nice with paved patio, swing and table. Level, gravel site and convenient on off I 90. Quiet at night, but with so many things for kids to do, it is busy during the day. Hookups good. Wifi adequate, but slow at times. - Motorhome girl

Might be the USA's Best KOA. Very clean and lots for kids to do. Onsite restaurant serves Breakfast and Supper. Some sites can be a challenge for big rigs and Direct and Dish TV. They could do a little tree trimming. Site surface is a concrete pad and features a fire ring, picnic table and patio.
Billings is a very expensive place to stop with RV's. If you can afford the nightly rate $$$$, this is your spot. - silverado

We had no reservation, but in October there is not much competition for sites. Nice space between sites. Well kept bathrooms. Wifi and cable worked well. Big mature trees. Level asphalt sites. - AZtravelers

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. - rlhoge

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. - DMcKitt

Gravel road and sites. Rules warn you about rattlesnakes possible in park. This is a very basic campground. Owners were very nice and welcoming. Lots of long term tenants. One long term tenant even had a cow pen completely encircling their trailer! Wifi was good and satellite friendly in most sites. Good for an overnight stop but would not stay long term. - Coastie Castaways

Park is just a block or so North of the highway and easy to get to. However, this also means that you hear road noise through out the night. Our site only had electric which is all we needed for an overnight stay. Pull through sites with full hookups were available. Our back in site was not bad. Level side to side and front to back. It was a bit narrow but not too bad.
The only incident was that we were not given the codes to the bathrooms. The explanation given was that the showers are an extra cost ($2) and when asked if we wanted to shower we said 'no' and the clerk assumed we did not need the bathrooms. The next day the clerk was not very "customer friendly" about the situation - enough said. - JABMPM

Good overnight right off I90. Some interstate noise. Dirt/gravel pads with grass and picnic tables. Many pull throughs. Fhu and e/w. 50/30 amp. Some sites shaded. Some more level than others. Very clean laundry, bathrooms and showers. Helpful hard working on site managers. - bluesnugs

Wow, we were not sure what we would find based on previous reviews. But this park and campground far exceeded our expectations. Located along the banks of the Yellowstone River and bordered by woods and a golf course on the other, this place had a COE feel to it. All sites are fairly level, some are subject to puddling after a heavy rain. Some have a stone pad to park on and others are simply gravel or dirt. There are two campground areas, an upper and lower area. You enter the upper area first, you can move freely from one to the other in any large RV, but do not go past the boat launch in the lower campground without scouting it out first. That is where you could have trouble with trees and branches. The lower campground has better river access and seemed to be more poplar with younger campers. We stayed in the upper, and some people were driving by way too fast headed for the lower campground. OTA was good with 4 stations, NBC & CBS included. Verizon cell and broadband both excellent. There is a threaded water connection available at the upper campground bathroom. - Bob and Inga

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
