6 Parks near Reed Point, Montana
Aug 2014 - $20.00
Very pleasant stay. Close to I-90 and a very quaint little town of Reed Point, MT. The park seemed to have mostly long term campers, but all looked neat and well maintained. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were exceptionally clean. We had full hookups to include cable and Internet. Both worked very well. The local saloon/grill is in walking distance and has a lot of character. Recommend if nothing more than to take a couple of pics and drink a coke at the saloon. This is not a destination campground however if you know the area, I'm sure their are some hiking and sightseeing to pursue. We would stay again! Passport America discount applied. Excellent value. - Travel Talk

This park is good for an overnight on Passport America ($20). Can't see paying full price. Just a wide spot on the road next to the interstate and near the train tracks, but was quiet enough inside the coach at night. Laundry room was in good shape, with brand new washers. Just 2 showers but clean. Cable was 24 channels, no ESPN nor CNN. Would stop again just for the price deal, and convenience between Billings and Livingston. - Annie's Song

Rate is the Passport rate. Real easy on/off I-90. Nice level gravel sites and interior roads. Very close to I-90 but noise was not a problem. Rate includes Wi-Fi,cable, and 50 amp. We did not use the cable, used our satellite dish. I wanted to wash the bugs off the front of the rig and asked if I could rinse with my hose. Was told if I used the hose I must pay the $10 charge to wash your rig. I could and did wash off the bugs using the bucket method. My Verizon smart phone said "no service" but our regular cell showed one bar and worked. This park works nice for an overnight stop. The population of Reed Point is about 100 and the closest grocery store is 17 miles. - RalphA

This is actually titled the Big Timber/Greycliff KOA. It is a Journey class, and after experiencing this place we think it means it is a park you only want to pass thru once. No KOA signs so follow directions. There is a long abandoned water park out of a Stephen King novel adjacent to the KOA so when you see it you know you have arrived.
Access is tight. Roads and sites are rough gravel. There is grass between the sites. Sites are narrow but long enough. Lots of big trees so if you have a roof mounted satellite, shoot for site 23-25. There is an "apology" on the back of the park site map saying they can't help the highway noise (not too bad) nor the trains: which sound like they are under your slideout.
Not many places to walk your dog. There is a standard "tiny" KOA off leash area. While walking our dogs (which we clean up after) we were told by the staff they were concerned that our dogs were 'going' near the campsites (they weren't) and we should use the dirty dog run. Instead we walked them near the extensive on premises dump or up in the abandoned water park. We noted that the water supply pipe runs thru the dump so we used on board water.
Not pet friendly. Not really kid friendly; there is a small playground and a dirty bounce field, but most kids toys were spotted in the dried out stream bed of the water park. There is a pool but it was covered in August. Said they would uncover it if we wanted to use it!
Although not very nice, it is nicer than another, rated #1 (really) KOA. I looked at the ratings on this place, and anyone who gave it an 8 must be related to the 6 inhabitants of the town. - okdiver

Long shady sites close together. 10:00am check out which is earlier than most. Stayed one night on our way through. Very noisy! Close to freeway and trains all day and night. They do offer ear plugs. - Maysie

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

Personnel was cheerful and check in was efficient. The park appears to be a little neglected. The site we were in wasn't level and the picnic table needed to have the wood replaced. The advertised WiFi was not very good where we were located, but we witnessed people on their devices on the benches outside the park office. - Paul Elliott

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

A city park that should be a model for all small towns! Over 30 sites - many pull through. They have a caretaker who will greet you shortly after arrival and provide you with an envelope to make a donation - I encourage you to do so to keep this area open.
You are welcome to stay up to 10 days. It is all non-reservable and no electric. There is water along side the bathroom building accessible by hose (you provide the hose!) It is safe and well kept. There are sites along side the river (Yellowstone River?)
Great proximity to town. The McDonalds has at least 2 tables with electric (if you need to charge things up!) There are two restaurants in town worth visiting - the 307 Bar and Grill and the Cafe. The IGA market is new and quite well stocked.
Columbus is about 40 miles west of Billings and is a far better place to stay instead of staying in Billings itself. - alansills

This is our 7th summer at Spring Creek and we drive over 1,000 miles to reach what we consider paradise by the river. The park is small and beautifully maintained. On the sign, it says "Big Rigs Welcome" and they are. That does not mean every site can accommodate a 40 or 45 foot coach. We have a 45' coach and we make our reservation far in advance so that we can be in a comfortable, appropriate site. When travelers arrive late in the day without a reservation, their options may be limited as the park has been very busy this year, probably because the vast majority of visitors find it charming and peaceful. Even so, the managers and staff try very hard to accommodate everyone as long as there is space. - vickyfullen

This was a very peaceful RV park. A little off the beaten path, but worth it. People were friendly and helpful. Our site was next to a trout pond where we were able to enjoy a nice evening fire. - DCM2015

Nice park if you like HOT, no shade, silty lake, no showers, no dump station. Scenery great but only hookup available is electric and only on some sites. Outhouses stink bad. Wayyyyyy too hot for July and August!! Watch out for wind in afternoon. Blew our attached shade tent down, broke tension strap hooks and bent poles in half. Would only come here again if temps fall below 80. - PodnUs

Understand what this place is - it's a state park that is "off the beaten path". I stayed at a non-electric site and tested out my new solar panels. During the week after Labor Day, it was very quiet.
The water front sites are truly water front (I stayed in Marshalls Cove) - a great place to bring a Kayak. There are also electric sites available. You will need to drive about 1 mile on a gravel, wash boarded road to get to Marshalls Cove. Longer if you want to get to the other campgrounds that comprise Cooney Dam Reservior. The place has a spirit of adventure about it. Phone service is limited to Fisherman's point - about 1 mile from Marshalls Cove. - alansills

Don't have to worry about me coming to this park again. First off it is DUSTY, and again nobody slows down going through campgrounds, and the dust boils. The only thing I can say is we came in on a Sunday and by Sunday night everyone was gone, and I mean everyone, not even a host so then the dust finally settled. If I knew it was on this type of entrance I probably would have opted for the another park. But I must say if you are set up for water sports then this seems like the place to go. - monaco cruiser
