5 Parks near Livingston, Montana
Aug 2015 - $50.00
Located 10 miles off the interstate, north of Yellowstone National Park which makes for a very quiet and restful campground. Campground located on the Yellowstone River and has trails that provide easy access to the river for fishing or rafting. Some of the cabins in the campground overlook the river. Campground well laid out and maximizes use of space which makes for somewhat tight campsites. Indoor Heated Swimming pool was nice but needed some maintenance to the decking around the pool. Off-leash dog park available on-site not well located and a bit small. Pull-thru and back-in FHU sites available. Breakfast available 6 days per week in office/gift shop/club house. Friendly staff. Would stay here again. - americanrascal

There are new owners to this park and they are doing a great job. First KOA in a long time that I have seen them adding gravel. Sites are close. The main drive is a large circle and it is paved. Perfect for kids on their bikes. There is a large clean playground for the kids. INDOOR SWIMMING POOL which was great on the rain day. Nicely stocked small store and there is a large grocery ten miles away. North entrance to Yellowstone about forty minutes. Park sits on the Yellowstone River. Two cautions; follow the KOA directions as my GPS took me a difficult way. Second, if you are over 40 feet it is a tight squeeze. We were in a 40 and took it slow and made it. Some kids had filled up the dump station with rocks so they were using open pull throughs till it was fixed. The way they are updating this should not take long. All the staff was great. Did not go over for breakfast but heard it was super. - kegmaster

Previous reviewer is right- this place is a mess. Vicious dogs in the Manager's mobile home act like they'll eat you for knocking on the wall (the door is blocked off). Other dogs roam around the park. Resident kids on bicycles ride through all sites, even if you are standing by your rig. Kids and adult residents are outside partying late at night. Cigarette butts and trash are all over the grounds. Fire in one mobile home brought out the entire city fire department. Bathrooms were frequently trashed with cigarette ashes and dirt in sinks. Constant noise from nearby Interstate. Sewer and water hookups are poorly placed, into the next site. We used to stop here for the convenient location and cheaper price, but the place gets worse every year. Could be okay for an overnight desperation stop, but wait to find the manager (who's a nice woman) in the morning. Don't knock on that home/office/dog kennel at night. - Annie's Song

The management was poor. Upon arrival we had to go look for the manager in a run down mobile home where we couldn't get to the door because it was fenced off. The sites are long but very, very close together. Water, electric and sewer are poorly laid out. Dogs are left outside unattended. I tried to walk my dog but there were large, unattended aggressive dogs all over the place. I didn't go near the restrooms, and the wifi did not work. I would not return. - Myrt & Gordy

Place looks like Dogpatch but it somehow works. Good price and cable TV, close enough to town to walk or bike. Management is accommodating. Sewer hookups are mostly inconvenient, water is great, sites are tight but long. Bathrooms are ancient- can't close the door when you're on the toilet. Single machines in Laundry room are worthless, city laundromat and grocery store nearby. - Annie's Song

I spent a week at Osens. A very nice park especially considering it's within the confines of Livingston- It didn't seem that way. The site (b2) was spacious and open, gravel and grass with a picnic table. The owners are both good people. Very nice and helpful. They gave me a good lead on a repair shop. A lot of rules? I guess, but sometimes that makes for a better stay for all. I slept well every night. Kind of got use to the trains in the distance during the night.
I plan on staying again. My only complaint would be that I feel for a weekly rate, during the off season of $250 (with tax) is too high. - Randell Tober

We originally planned on staying here 2 nights, but ended up staying 6! Everything was great. There were 28 good TV channels (including PBS), and WiFi worked very well. Laundry has only 2 washers and dryers @ $2 ea but was clean and had a convenient folding table. Individual rest rooms were very clean and comfortable. Hosts very service oriented. - Jane & Art

This park is small, but it is very well maintained. There are a lot of rules that have to be followed, but since we were only there for one night it was fine. It is convenient to I-90. Our pull-through was long and level, and park was very quiet. Staff was very friendly upon arrival and check-in was fast. We did not have time for sightseeing, but would love to visit the area again. - thejones357

Gallatin National Forest campground south of Livingston off Hwy 89. Narrow winding paved road to campground and easy to navigate with truck and 22 ft. trailer. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful with local knowledge. Trailhead to beautiful waterfall with easy hike right from campground. Free flowing Pine Creek behind many sites to listen to under the clear mountain stars. Wonderful dry camping site to explore the area and within 2 hours of Yellowstone National Park. A hidden gem! Deer wandering through camp and owls hooting at night, wonderful! - The Grizz

Kind of spendy for what you get, but it's on the way to Yellowstone so that's probably why. Wonderful owners; very helpful. - Senior Camper

Very small RV park with about 20 sites. Some are pull-through and most are long enough to allow a fifth wheel or toad to remain hooked up. This place was very clean and well maintained and is right on the river making it exceptionally peaceful. Each site had a new or recently refinished picnic table. Even though it is right next to the road that was not at all noticeable from our site. Both the Mens and Womans facilities were single seaters making for lines in the morning. There was also only a single shower in each and the laundry contained a single washer and dryer.
The wifi, for me, was unuseable. The signal was mostly below 80 dbm (one bar or less) and kept fading in and out. The wifi router's were set to not assign IP addresses so the only thing you could do was surf the general web. My bet is that the three wifi routers that were visible were only desktop devices intended for covering a room or two and not intended for use outside the building they were in.
The cable TV coverage was outstanding, delivering 60 or so channels but nothing local. Verizon cell was borderline weak and my Galaxy 6 kept switching between 3g and 4g which was disruptive to my using it as a hotspot.
The downside is the owner/manager was very domineering and overbearing. I might have met a more obsessive control freak at some time in my 72 years but I really cant remember when. It made what could have been a very enjoyable 5 star stay very unpleasant. The guys adversarial and confrontational attitude escalated one or two trivial situations into unnecessary conflict. You cant sugar coat rudeness and disrespect with "Sir", "Please", and "Thank You's"; rude is still rude and completely uncalled for. - hotsauce

We really enjoyed our stay here. Owners were very helpful and friendly. Laundry and bathrooms were very clean. WiFi worked best in laundry room but was weak at campsite at times. Cable TV was great. We had a full hook up. - webbsafari
