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

Campground is well off highway so no traffic noise. Our visit was during 100 year celebration of National Park so campground was full. Very large facility, well laid out. - MamaLyn

I've reviewed this park before and we just stayed 3 nights again. This is a very nice Park, big sites, lots of shade, good power and water, friendly staff. The had an ice cream social last night. Yummy ice cream, $2 a scoop. Very kid friendly pool and play ground, bikes for rent. The deluxe back in sites along the river are lovely. My only 2 criticisms are slow WiFi and not much for sale in the store for groceries, beer and wine. Best to get that stuff in Livingston as this park is 10 miles south of town. We will return here again. - Islandgirllil

This is a wonderful park. It is about 1 hour from the northern gates into Yellowstone NP at Gardiner. The park staff are friendly and the grounds are kept clean. We had the best breakfast we have ever had at any KOA! They have an off-leash dog area near the front entrance to the park. The pool is an indoor/heated pool. WiFi worked well for our stay. They have an ice cream social ($$) every evening. The park is about 1 mile off the highway so it's nice & quiet at night. We would definitely stay here again. - 69636

The road to the park is tight with a tight right hand turn into the park. You will have to unhook your tow vehicle while navigating inside the rv park.
If you are looking for a passive aggressive park with a lot of rules. This is the place for you! After checking in and listening to ALL the "do not" rules we were led to our pull through spot by the rules infraction sheriff. He watched from his golf cart as I hooked up and set up our motorhome to ensure I was not breaking any of their rules that I was informed of just minutes ago...twice!!
After setting up and passing inspection (sarcasm), my 3 teenage sons proceeded to ride their bikes to checkout the park. i.e bathrooms, trash and showers. They were quickly shouted at, from another rules deputy, that if they wanted to ride their bikes to go ride them ON THE ROAD. They were not allowed to ride the in the rv park. Seriously?!?
I could go on with more rule infractions such as not parking straight enough, trash must be in a approved container, and please don't set anything on the grass; but I think you get the picture. - Familyfulltimerv

We picked this RV Park randomly because others in Bozeman were full, due to it being a holiday weekend. We found this park to be very neat and clean. The fenced dog area was a nice perk and very close to us. I didn't find them to be so "rules oriented" like some reviews stated. We would definitely stay here again. - Vikie

We have stayed here before when we visited Yellowstone Park and came back for a third time. It is a very clean park with nice grass areas between each coach. It has level sites that are mostly pull-through with some back in. The staff was very friendly and helped us find good places to eat. I highly recommend this park for anyone visiting the area. It is accessed by a narrow lane, but there is ample room to get back to the park. - USA by RV

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

The staff was very nice. The park was clean and well maintained. Our gravel spot was big enough for our 45', tow car did not fit on site well, but it was not an issues sticking out a bit.
Sits along the main road but not too much traffic noise. The river along the park was nice with a short walking trail.
Verizon was pretty good, WiFi was workable. - Karens BAM

Very nice park 35 miles from northern entrance to Yellowstone NP. We stayed here a week in a 42' 5th wheel. Park has dirt interior roads but decent pull-through sites with grassy areas in between and good Wifi. No issues with the electric and nice screw-in threads on the sewer connection.
There is no pool or hot tub, but there are nightly campfires and a nice rec room. The people were very nice and all hook-ups were good. There is no cable TV nor over the air channels to receive. The Yellowstone River backs up to the park with nice benches to sit on as the river flows by. Probably the nicest RV Park this close to the Yellowstone NP. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

This is an older park, with sites pretty close together and a bit worn down. The person that greeted us was very friendly and the store was decently stocked for a camp store. This is a great place for an overnight stay, but I don't think the train whistles would let me stay more than a night.
This is kind of a hard place to find, we drove right past it, circled four miles around to the exact same spot until we noticed a tiny little sign for the camp.
I saw some pretty decent sized rigs here so I think that even though the spots are close together, they are more than accommodating length-wise. A little tight getting in and out of the spots, but nothing too bad.
The trains are really the main detractor from this, but you can't get away from them at any of the Bozeman RV parks from what I understand, so apparently this is the best you will get. The trains run pretty much all day and a good part of the night and it's pretty close to the camp.
I saw plenty of people that seem to either live here or have camped for a good while (our neighbor had been there a couple weeks), so those trains don't bother everyone.
Honestly the only really "bad" thing about this place is the trains. When reviewing a camp site I take into account how "nice" a place is to stay as well as everything else, the trains make this a bit less "nicer" than other places, but doesn't mean the campground itself is bad.
I do, however, think that $45 per night for full hookups at this particular spot was pretty high. - CORockies

Gravel roads and sites. Our site was sloped and situated next to a big spruce, so we had to maneuver the rig to get satellite access. Power was situated well forward and sewer all the way at the back, so it was a bit tricky. Good water pressure. Two bars signal strength on the wifi, so when we could log in, it was unusable. Our hotspot worked fine. - The Hilts

About 5 miles from downtown Bozeman. Site was a bit narrow; flat on top, but more of an angle out the steps. Very clean restrooms and laundry. Checked out the showers, but we didn't use them. Our friends were in Space 8 which was wonderful. Lots of grass and a picnic table. We also had a table, but not near as much grass. Easy in and out. Trash is as you exit. Beautiful views of the mountains. Pool was always busy, and it looked very nice. Lots of trees. We would definitely come back here. - WSKeifer

Fine for a one night stop in Bozeman. Easy access from highway; we weren't bothered by highway noise. Close to downtown. Sites were tight. If we had out out our awning, it would have been over the neighbor's car. Unable to use wi-fi. Hook-ups were fine, no amenities. - Bunci

Site was fairly level, I think we used one 1 1/2 board. It's very convenient for visit Bozeman and the University. - Shadowberr

Verizon cell worked well. Sprint MiFi worked slowly if at all. Likewise the campground WiFi was slow if it worked at all. We used our Verizon cell hotspot for Internet access. Able to obtain DirecTV signal. Our Site #35 had open sky but many sites have trees which might affect satellite set-up. Easy reservation process over the phone. Efficient check-in and personally led us to our site. Very-very-very friendly staff. Hookups worked perfectly. Excellent location to downtown Bozeman. Central spot for exploratory day trips outside of Bozeman. The negatives are: 1. Noisy location due to nearby Highway 90 and train tracks. Train blows its horn during the night and it's loud enough to wake you up (and I consider myself to be a sound sleeper). 2. Sites are front-to-front and back-to-back so your awning and picnic table faces your neighbor's awning and picnic table. All neighbors were very nice so it wasn't a problem. Overall - for us - the location and service outweigh the negatives. We would stay here again. - GottaGoNow
