Stopped for one night tent dry camping on 9/10/20. Clean and quiet. Close to interstate (pros and cons). Parking available next to tent area. No fire rings in the large tent area. Limited picnic tables. Had two bucks stroll within 30 yards of the tent area. Bathrooms and showers were secure and clean. No firewood for sale. Had to buy from KOA next door.
No hookups of course. There is a toilet available. No light so make sure you take a flashlight at night. Great campsites. Privacy. Larger areas for groups. Fire rings. There are even some geocaches around the area. Great views. Good fishing. Clean and well kept. Make sure you pay and get your ticket at the front when you come in so the “ranger” knows you paid. Pack out what you pack in. Watch for open fire regs.
Lovely sounds of the river and beautiful sunsets over the mountains! This dry camp was an excellent 2 night escape from our normal stops in RV parks. Level sites and easy pull through for our 36’ rv and toad. We were able to find a cozy spot right next to the river. The bugs and the dust are a bit much, but we had a blast with the dogs in the river, and enjoyed the peace and quite. Bring your bug spray and sunscreen!
Arrive at around 11pm on a Saturday night. The good spots were taken but still plenty of room for our 4Runner + RTT. We used as a single night stop over driving up to Glacier. Some of the grass is well kept and mowed and other spots unmanaged. A lot of tent sites toward the back in a quieter dark area. Overall for a free site it was really nice. There were definitely some very sweet spots right on the Yellowstone river.
Reserved a spot in the cottonwood loop, #10. Nice little semi secluded section of beach, soft sand and the water temp was great. Went to start setting up camp and their were ants and a variety other bugs EVERYWHERE. We left. Would not camp here, but was a good spot to cool off for the afternoon. Probably better if you have an RV.
Super cool getting to stay at the very first KOA in America!
Very easy to get to, right off of I90. We travel and run our business from the road and it's crucial for us to have wifi, good wifi because we have small windows to get things done since we have 3 kids under 5, 3 dogs over 5, a cat and a grandma rollin with us.
We really enjoyed Billings, KOA. It was clean, staff was super, easy in and out. The Wifi was TOP NOTCH and fast. We were streaming for the kids and burning away at the laptops.
Things we loved:
- river access
Not so much:
- Kids playground needed some loving
- Sites were pretty tight
We will stay here again. We experienced a microburst when we were here that knocked down several trees, the power and was pretty scary. We pondered moving on but they cleaned up the park, had the power back on and wifi with in 24 hours. INCREDIBLE!
The lake has nice options for all levels of use. Be prepared for gravel roads to get to them. There are very nice spots to park and enjoy the water for the day all the way up to multiple unit powered camp sites for large groups. Vault toilets are as clean as can be, water spigots at camp spots are nice to have. It’s really laid out well to enjoy the whole lake. Whether you’re on a unicorn floatie or a giant wave boat this lake is a nice way to spend a day or a week. There are three boat launches and a really nice fish cleaning station. There are also abundant trout and carp to be cleaned if you buy a license and bring gear. Reserve the spots ahead on recreation.gov. The proximity to surrounding towns brings the typical weekenders with lots of kiddos, Fido’s, and weirdos and (of course) the occasional drunk firesiders. The camp hosts do a great job of making sure everyone is safe and has an enjoyable experience without being super nosey. They also have firewood and ice for sale. There isn’t fuel or food, so pack that in and pack it back out. It’s not wilderness or a spectacular destination, but it’s a nice place to spend a few days to get away from the usual grind.
