Great National Forest campground. All back-in sites except for one, which is barely off the road (best used by a tent trailer). Camped here is a 25' travel trailer with a slide out. Nicely paved and level sites. Some a couple of decent sized fifth wheels here. Very beautiful and quiet. Easy access to Red Lodge and the Beartooth Highway. - jclifton

For dry camping with vault toilets, this was a nice spot with lots of shade from tall pines and soothing sounds from the creek. Rate is with senior discount, but we paid an additional $9 online reservation fee - a mistake since we had the place almost to ourselves. This is a good location to visit the cute town of Red Lodge 12 miles away, or to head into Yellowstone on the famous Beartooth Highway. - NC Writer

Excellent host and the cleanest vault toilets I've seen in awhile. Great wildlife: moose and deer. Sites were along a creek. Great hiking. It's not far from Red Lodge and at the base of the Beartooth Highway. - shepherdmoon

I have stayed a number of times here, always in late September early October.
I usually camp off grid but stop at a full service campground now and then for a shower. At least in the fall this is a very nice quiet campground and at that time of year not crowded. I love the sites down by the roaring stream.
This one is always on my radar if I'm passing through Redlodge. - Twinpups

A great location to begin an adventure! Located on the south side of town - that's the side that is past Red Lodge and at the beginning of the Beartooth Highway.
There are two sections to this park - above and below. The "below" section is along the Rock Creek. You can hear the creek from almost any site in that section. I travel in a 38 ft fifth wheel and was definitely able to navigate the lower section.
The manager is friendly and helpful. She has much information to share - especially about the Beartooth highway and Yellowstone National Park. They are installing new bathrooms. Each site is water and electric but they do have a RV dump.
Red Lodge has great restaurants - I recommend the Red Box Car (at south end of town) and Bogarts (for GREAT pizza) - and originating from NJ, I KNOW great pizza! - alansills

The lower campground is along Rock Creek. Every campsite was well kept. Would go back there in a heart beat. - mpetroske

Rude owners who were very unfriendly. Our site didn't have hookups even though I booked a site with hookups. We could not connect to the internet at all. The bathrooms were very far from our site and the area to them was not well lit. The pool was tiny. The drive over Beartooth Highway was amazing but there is not much to Red Lodge. - MandTinSF

We stayed here two nights. We wanted to visit the town of Red Lodge and ride on the Beartooth Highway. It is a must-see! The highway is AWESOME and unbelievable! Red Lodge is a fun town with lots to see and Cooke City is a good stop for lunch on the Beartooth before you turn around to drive back. The site we had was up front near the office. It was OK, but we would ask to be put in the back section next time where there is more grass and space. The staff is friendly and helpful. - Florida Bob

Easy check in. Very good 50 amp, water pressure, and WI-Fi. No problems with septic hookups. Very quiet this time of year, but some traffic in and out for one nighters. About 4 miles on the Billings side of Red Lodge, which is a really nice little town. Pool looked clean. Really needs some sprucing up. It is run down to the point we didn't even want to sit outside. Gravel and dead grass. Park is run by nice work-campers. Owners live on site, but must not be real interested, although there is some evidence of a few recent improvements. No views from lower campground area. Had to laugh at local publication touting the park being surrounded by mountains etc...don't expect scenic wonder here. I would not hesitate to overnight there again, but would perhaps consider another campground in the area. - NHIrish
