This was down a gravel road situated by the I94 bridge over the Bighorn River. We took what looked to be the main site with picnic table and fire ring. There may have been more sites especially under the bridge. There was a small but clean vault toilet but no garbage. Thankfully, the traffic on I-94 is light so the noise was negligible. We had a view of the river nestled against the ubiquitous cottonwoods. The site is free. We were there in late September 2020 in a pop up truck camper.
We were tent camping. Keep that in mind.
First the bad: There’s a train that passes by about 5 times throughout the night. It’s about 6 blocks away- but still very noticeable. However- this is a problem for almost every campground in the area. Also theres a ton of GIANT dead cottonwood branches overhead EVERYWHERE. They need to send a crew out to clean that up. Someone is going to get hurt one of these days (I’m an arborist! LOL)
The good: They have trees. Big ones. It’s pretty. There’s a big river a 30 second’s walk from the campground. There’s pit toilets. They stink, but they’re clean and stocked. There is running water and it tastes good! Each campsite has a picnic table. The campsites are not crammed one on top of eachother. You can come in late- they don’t lock the gates at night BUT YOU DO HAVE TO OPEN THE GATE YOURSELF. Minus the train, it’s SUPER quiet and dark.
Not one of my favorites. There are some smaller private sites suitable for tents. The only thing this campground has going for it is that it’s right on the yellowstone river. Someone took our campsite while we were in town and there is no campground host. It is right next to railroad tracks which are in use (about 6 or so went by throughout the night)
Heading back behind some local farms is a gem of a fishing spot. It's a wide open group camp spot with vaulted toilet only no showers. Great access to the river with a little boat ramp. There's only one campsite with shade and it looks like you need a 4x4 to get in there. The shaded spot is quite a distance from the toilet.
A few miles off of the highway and you will find this nice camping area along the Yellowstone River. Very windy the day we were there, but the campsites were nice with fire rings and the scenery was exceptional. This is close to Pompey’s Pillar(which is currently closed for repair), and the Little Bighorn battlefield. Also not far from Billings.
Picture-perfect Montana Rockies beauty. Didn’t use the lake but many were. Wooded small campground with basic primitive sites. Owned by National Forest & kept well. Filled up by mid-afternoon, were lucky to get there early. Exceptional views.
