Very well maintained and managed facility. Easy freeway access and on the route to or from Yellowstone's north entrance. Groomed gravel parking areas with large adjacent grass and picnic table. Mostly open with large mature trees surrounding park. Restrooms and laundry facilities are clean and well maintained. Well designed and maintained dog off leash area. Fully fenced, mowed and free of waste. Wish more parks had this kind of dog area!
Park was neat and clean. Stayed during a high wind advisory and there was nothing blowing across the ground, except leaves from the trees. The laundry and washroom facilities are above average and everything worked.
The check-in was efficient, quick and the hostess was full of information when asked about different topics. Escorted to my site and the escort made sure all of the amenities were in working order.
Nice small park, well maintained. Lady in the office was very friendly and provided a lot of information, including a list of rules that they do enforce in order to keep their park in good repair. Hookups, Wi-fi and cable worked well. Bathrooms were clean. There is a fenced off-leash dog area. Close to downtown Livingston, but quiet. The only issue is the entrance. There is only one designated entrance into the park, which is wide enough for just one RV. If you come back to the park when others are checking in, you get stuck waiting in line just to get back to your site. Would stay again if in the area.
Osen's, Livingston, MT - Very clean sites, flowered paths along laundry and bathroom facilities. No fires or charcoal grills, but easy on / easy off from route 90 but far enough away that you don't hear the traffic. There is no pool but there is a large fenced dog run area. A good stay for our one night stop - passing through.
I really liked this park. The staff was very friendly and the check-in was quick and not at all intrusive as suggested by another reviewer. We had a problem with cable reception and they trouble shot the cable until we tracked the problem to a loose connection in our rig! I did not rate the restrooms because we didn't use them. The facility and appeal ratings are four star only because the park's roads and sites are gravel and I know that can be a turn off for some people.
If I travel this way again, I will stay here again.
We stayed 1 night passing through the area.
The park is a short drive from I-90 (Exit 333: US 89) along a multi- lane paved roads until you reach Merrill Lane. Merrill Lane is very narrow. It would be difficult for 2 RV’s to get past each other.
There was an extensive check in process that included collection of a lot of personal information and showing identification when paying with a credit card. There was an escort to the site.
The sites are a mixture of back-in along the outer edge and P/T’s in the center. There are a few back-in sites that appear to be extended stay sites. The interior roads and sites are compacted gravel. The interior roads and turns are very narrow and tight but we remained connected to the toad. The P/T sites were long enough that we didn’t have to disconnect the toad. The center sites are open but there are some trees along the edges. Site had sufficient room for opening slides. This park doesn’t understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site as the sites were not level and flat. Distance and grassy areas establish privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30 AMP), & sewer. The sewer connection was at the ground so it was easy to establish a downhill flow but it required about 40’ of hose to reach it. There was an outside table. No fire pits as open flames or not permitted in the park.
There are trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. The park brochure showed 25 cable channels but made no mention of broadcast channels. Didn’t try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was good. It was password protected. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. Didn’t try the NET10 phone so don’t know about cell phone reception.
The designated fenced pet area with a grass surface was located towards the back of the park. There were bag dispensers and collection stations for waste in the fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park’s roads and the adjacent rural residential roads.
The park was quiet in a nice rural setting but there weren’t many campers. There was a warning that Livingston can be very windy.
We would probably stay here again if traveling through the area.
Friendly staff and a nice big enclosed dog area. We had a nice back in spot for our 36' triple slide Cougar. Public street was a bit narrow but easy enough to navigate to/from campground. I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.
We have family in the Livingston area and Osen's is our campground of choice. It is well off a busy road so has minimal traffic sounds. The grounds are well maintained. Bath house and laundry facilities are cleaned daily. Owners have specific guidelines about noise, site condition and visitors. It is a very pleasant place to stay.
Very nice camp ground and scenic as well. The lady that check us in was very nice as was our guide that took us to our spot for the night. Camp ground was very clean. We were there just for the night but would go again. We have a 5th wheel and we had a back in spot.
