Convenient not necessarily cheep

Convenient not necessarily cheep. Pretty close to battle of little bighorn. Pool was refreshing. I agree with the other review that the staff wasn't very enthusiastic about checking us in. I liked they were having a fund raiser and selling ice cream. Spots were flat. Power was ample. Sayed there summer of 2019

Nice place for families

This is your typical KOA Holiday which is their way of branding a location as one to stay and have fun. They have a pool, hot tub, nice miniature golf course and access to the Yellowstone River. Sites are typical, full hookups with different grades of amenities and prices to go with them. We did not use the bathrooms but they looked nice. Nicely stocked store, friendly staff. Surprisingly our pull through was out of level side to side by three inches. Shouldn’t have to get our boosters out in such a place and for the price. Dinged them a star for that. Sites are tight at pull through a, do not expect privacy. But this is a nice place to hang out and relax, and if you have kids they can have some fun. Laundry room was nice and clean but half of the dryers were out of service.

Good for Campers, not for tents.

Stayed on the north shore side of the reservoir. Did the "camp in the truck bed" thing. There's a neighborhood on the north shore, so it becomes an early morning of it's mid-week since cars start leaving to head to work. The lake is a nice sight in the morning. The dog loved it.

Small but nice

Only a few tent sites, none very big. Camping is more along the irrigation ditch but you could wade to the Stillwater River to fish. Would not recommend for trailers or campers, even a small teardrop would be tough to maneuver. Really feels like you're camping in the backyard of the ranch you drive thru to reach the site. Fire pits were nice.

Donation based camping right on the Yellowstone River

Right next to Yellowstone River and in the town of Columbus is a free campground. There are a lot of sites that are well spread out. If the front is full, follow the road next to the golf course and there are more. We camped right next to the restrooms so it wasn’t the quiet spot. However it was the only one left with shade- it seems pretty full today. I agree with the other reviews. This is a nice spot but it’s not exactly what we’re looking for. There are a lot of dogs(some loose) and a lot of people. Traffic noise is higher and campers arrive late and leave early. It’s a great thing that this town offers. Mosquitoes are a bit of a nuisance. The river is beautiful and the river access is all around. 

If the crowd thinned out our stay would have been better. We got one of the last few sites and others filled in later. 

Near the entrance is a donation post so your contribution can help this continue.

The 1st KOA

We have stayed here 2 times Both times we have had exceptional service by these people! Sites are what you would expect for a KOA We will be back

Ok for an overnight, wouldn't stay long term

We stayed here as an overnight stop during our summer trip.

There is not much in Hardin at all, but the campground provide plenty of space with the sites. We had 50amp for our trailer and water and sewer hookups.

I don't think the staff at the front desk were very enthusiastic about their jobs…they seemed like they weren't too happy to have to deal with another camper showing up for the night.

There were quite a few other rigs there when we stayed, but no one that looked like they were staying for long term.

Nice City Park along the Yellowstone River

We spent 9 days here (8/25-9/2) to work in nearby Billings (40 miles east) before heading to Washington State. The park was quiet and clean and we had no issues with neighbors at all. This is a city park that runs on donations. A nice guy from the local government stopped by once to give us a sheet with the rules and city ordinances.

Completely dry camping, although we were able to fill our tank at the spigot on the side of the restroom building. Grass or gravel sites with fire rings and picnic tables, with a mix of back in and pull-through spaces. A lot of space for big rigs and tenters alike. Firewood was available near the dumpsters in the middle of the park.

The nearest grocery store is a few miles away in town and the laundromat was small but clean. A farmer’s market was set up in the park by the railroad tracks on Thursdays (4:00-6:30) that had everything from fresh veggies and homemade goodies, as well as blankets and jewelry and a couple food trucks.

There is no dump station in the park, but there is one at the nearby Cenex station for a $5 charge during business hours. Otherwise the folks at Mountain View RV Park on the other side of the interstate will let you dump and fill water for $5.

Full Verizon signal allowed me to work from our rig for a couple days when I didn’t need to be in Billings.

First to Review
Battle of Little Big Horn

It’s the most reasonable place to camp if you’re stopping for the night to see the national monument.

River camping

Jam up camp site by the river. Off the main highway and doesn’t look like too many people know about it. A small tow behind camper would fit in here. There is a boat launch too.
