What else is there to say? Really, just how many campgrounds have flowers at their dump station? The only negative I could come up with is that the electric pedestal is the shortest I've ever seen. Had to get down on one knee to plug in. Looked pretty old too, but the electricity was a strong 117 volts despite the park being almost completely full. The entire camp was very well kept and swept. No trash, no dilapidated picnic tables, everything looked great. Staff was friendly and efficient. There is even an air station to top off the pressure in your tires on your way out. Haven't seen that anywhere else.
We stayed for 2 nights. The Park is quiet, well maintained, with friendly and accommodating owners. Our 2 Boston Terriers enjoyed playing in the grassy, tree shaded, dog run. The full hook up sites are tree shaded and very wide. All sites are pull through. We look forward to staying here when we’re in Billings in the future.
Ok place to stay if you are a sardine. The sites were double stacked and very close. We were unable to use our outdoor kitchen and awnings. There was no room to sit outside or even use the picnic table. Will not stay here again. Great bathrooms though.
Sites were too close together, each site is designed for side by side setup making one rig main entrance directed towards the other rigs wall or slide out. The distance and setup worry me with a possibility of hitting my head on the other rigs bedroom slideout . The drive in and out was very easy. Dump station was well placed along with easy acquisition of propane. The employees were extremely nice. The access trail for the river was a very nice addition.
RV sites are designed for one RV, yet two are put into each site where there is no room to do anything, and you're extremely close to your neighbor on both sides. The park was not clean, and it seemed no one followed the posted rules, especially the 5mph speed limit. WiFi did not work, the pool was closed, and tree debris cluttered camp sites. A lady with four dogs allowed them to pee at my site, kids were riding bikes through people's campsites and one wiped out right at my door. I travel with a service dog, and we were nearly attacked by a dog from a site when we walked by, with no apology or acknowledgement from the owner. This campground is not worth the money spent ($55 per night) and I know I will never return to this place.
Do not camp here. Wifi is useless. No more than 5 feet between campers, face to face. Picnic tables behind camper. The worst we have stayed at from Key West to Spokane. If there was a 0 I would have given it a 0. Make sure you have lots of extensions for everything!!!
This campground should have a zero rating. My husband and I thought with the Good Sam rating it would be a nice place to stay, but it's not. It had rained during the day and we pulled in about dusk. The site we were assigned was flooded, the electric hookup was on the ground and under water! The people were rude and we did not get our Good Sam discount. I advise all campers not to stay at this campground.
trusted other reviews and saw an overall rating of 9.5, you have got to be kidding me, I can reach out and touch the trailer next to me and for $78US a night....... The pool is small as are all the RV sites. The cable tv works great as does the internet, but other than that, not worth the visit or money
Agree with other reviews, we paid almost $78 even with Goodsam discount, If I not been so tired I would have gone elsewhere, We were told it was summer rate even though we were there week before Memorial Day and the pool and hot tub were not open. When I asked why we were being charged summer rates if we could not use the hot tub or pool the clerk just shrugged and looked disinterested.
We had a pull through site but had to unhook the trailer to connect to utilities and to be able to extend awning, we had about 4 feet clearance from neighbors slideouts on both sides. Trail to the river was a joke.
Not enough bathrooms for number of sites. Only positives, shade and quiet location. I will not stay here again and you should not either.
This place has really gone downhill. Evidently there is a cash flow problem as the rates have dramatically increased for extended stays. Most entertaining listening to the owner lady yelling at an occupant for the additional $45.00 after they paid for the site. Very poor snow removal all winter. Space sizes are 12 ft x 60 ft so you are in your neighbor's space with the slides out. No body picks up after their dogs. Only game in town for the winter if you have a big rig or pets.
Our recent stay at Yellowstone River RV Park was not a pleasant experience!! Reservations were made nearly 4 months ahead of stay. Type and size of RV with desired hookup,etc. Upon intrance to park it looked very nice, but....spaces left much to be desired! Too close to other RVers(couldn't extend awning), maybe 6 feet between units. Rate almost double that of much nicer parks! Dry camping would have been better! Never again! Good Sam should drop them!!
We were booked to stay at this campground for two nights but when we arrived and got our site # we looked at it and knew we would not fit. The sites are extremely small. If I could give a zero star rating for site size I would have. We have a 29' ft 5th wheel with three slides and our door faced the other rv's door. We would've had to step over their steps to get past. There would have been maybe a foot between RV's on the other side. They offered us another site that was no better so we asked for a refund. She gave us the refund but was obviously not happy with us. I can't comment on facilities etc because we left before looking at anything else.
how is this place even on a Good Sam list. Must be because buildings are nice and there is grass in the pet area. NOTHING else qualifies. Worse place ever. And we used to stay here all the time. Bad experience. Loaded with creepy full time people. Glad to get out after only one day. Don't go there.
Head the warnings from others. This place is very cramped!! You essentially share a wide site with another RV. Also, we were quoted $60 per night but were charged almost $80 when we showed up! $60 was supposed to be for full hookups but we were told that we must have been misquoted. Also, you better hope you don't have a problem at night because there is no night host to work out any issues. Even worse, the office doesn't open until 9AM!! This park is setup for extended stays. Do not stay here for a couple of nights, you'll go broke! This is by far the most expensive site we've stayed in so far with very few amenities. The pool was dirty, I didn't dare try the hot tub and the bathrooms were meh. We've only been rving for a straight 2 months, but have stayed at over 20 rv parks and this is by far our worst experience for the price. If you're looking for short term, find another place to stay!
We were extremely disappointed in this RV Park. The park was very cramped. We had to park our RV unit with the entrance facing the gravel and also facing the entrance to our neighbor. The 4 feet of grass was on the back side of the pad with didn't do any good because you don't walk there. The swimming pool was very cold and the kids could not swim in it. We choice this RV site because it had a pool and it was very hot outside. We could not enjoy the pool. The price was about $73 US which was close to $100 Canadian. It was the most expensive RV park in our 3 month cross Canada and US trip. My wife and I definitely don't recommend this park because of the tight quarters, pool and price. Very over rated in our opinion.
Was pretty expensive for a so so place. Used the internet and got hacked for $811. Called them about it to tell them they had a problem and they really didn't seam to care about protecting customers info. I would not even give them a star, but you have to push a star to add this to the review.
At almost $70 a night I wished I had stayed in a cheap hotel. The sites are so jammed in together that you literally have to be careful of hitting slideouts. The cable does not work. It did have decent wifi so I could write this review. We stayed in a 43' motorhome.
I believe the camping spots were over priced. the camping sites were to tight. when asked a question about other camp sites the staff could not give you an answer. it appeared as if they had no clue as to who was coming in and where they would put them.
Parking spots so narrow could not put out all slides. Party in camper next to us went on past 11pm no one to complain to. Charger $75. per night for the worst Good Sam we have ever stayed IN, SO BAD WE LEFT 1 DAY EARLY EVEN THOUGH WE HAD PAID.
Wow, this was a surprise for a Good Sam Campground. We stayed at numerous member campgrounds during our trip from Florida to the Canadian Rocky Mountains and this campground was the worst of any we experienced. The cost for one night was $72, the staff was rude, the sites were cramped together, we could not use the picnic table, and the path to the river was far and then non-existent (they no longer had time to keep it maintained).
The internet had a very poor connection and when we inquired about it their comment was "oh well, we can reset it but it won't make any difference". They got their money and didn't care about your stay. The camp had too many sites for the facilities offered, a staff that showed no interest in being pleasant, and we felt like we made a big mistake staying here. This park does not deserve a good rating and should not be a Good Sam Park.
Seeing the high rating, I was overwhelmed when we arrived and found that the sites were cramped to the point that we did not have enough space to open the awning and had to jockey to get enough room to open the slide-out. There was no grass at any space and the picnic tables were too close to units to be of any use. The bathrooms and showers were equally cramped and only average in cleanliness. At 72 dollars for a one night stay, this park was the worst we encountered on our cross-country trip.
On a more positive note, this park was one of two that we stayed with a fenced-in area for dogs to run free. One dog area was too close to a cabin which was problematic as a young child insisted on pestering the dogs. The other area was large and away from other sites but had a low fence and a gate without a latch.
Nothing at all what it looks like from road at entrance other than the shade trees. Pull through sites WAAAAY too small. Very awkward for neighbor sharing the pull through site. No room to even extend awning. Door of neighbor faces your own door. Once neighbor extended his slide out, we had 3 ft walkway between us...maybe less. Sewer too far from my unit. Hose would not reach. No place for picnic table even though they had them placed nearby. No fire pits. Too many long term renters making themselves at home. Will never stay here again. Disappointed this is a Good Sam Park. For price, not worth it.
