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

Nice quiet park. Some shade at some locations. Creek and river access. Nice pool. - PodnUs

We chose Red Lodge for our stay because we wanted to tour Beartooth Highway on our way to Yellowstone NP. This KOA is about your only choice if you want or need sewer hookup. Our impression of the park may be tainted by the fact that it was Memorial Day weekend and very crowded. Check-in experience was good, but I think the park is over-priced for what you get. The park is on level terrain with some hardwood shade, gravel roads with pot-holes, sites gravel. Our site level. No cable but was able to pick up CBS out of Billings (good HD). 50 amp electric good, septic good, Wi-Fi excellent. Water was another story. Our connection had a defective faucet caused by cross-threading; impossible to make a leak-free connection even with staff help. Rather than replace the faucet, their decision was to just live with the small geyser (for our 3 night stay). This was a very messy solution; our street-side neighbors really appreciated that! I later found out that the three or four sites in our area all have the same problem. It was reported at the end of last camping season, but management has chosen not to deal with it. - long ball

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

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

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

Staff was very friendly and informative about area. Bathrooms were very clean and did not smell musty. We stayed down by creek and loved the sound of the water on the rocks. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others. Thank you. - Mikvik

Park is gravel throughout. Pull-through sites have no trees and are very tight. Our neighbor had to pull his awning in for us to get our slideouts out. Back-in sites are near a creek and have trees and more room. No sites have sewer, but there is a dump. WiFi is bad. No cable, and antenna gets 3 channels (no NBC). - ta96silver

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
