9 RV Parks near Big Sky, Montana
Jul 2016 - $14.00
Red Cliff National Forest Campground is one of our nearby, "go to" weekend campgrounds. They have a loop of electric hookup sites most of which are reservable (recreation.gov), but with a generous number of "walk up" sites available.
The campground is on the Gallatin River, which separates from the campground from Highway 191. There are two loops, one with electric-served sites, and another for standard sites. The electric sites are in a lightly forested area, with the regular sites looping around an open, grassy space. The latter loop was completely redone by the Forest Service last year, and is beautiful, with large, mostly back-in sites. There is water available for RVs, but no dump. All the sites have fire rings and robust, fixed-in-place picnic table. Site separation is superb. Most sites are very level.
Big Sky is about 10 miles away, and there is a pleasant rustic restaurant/bar about a mile away (great pie!).
One of our faves, and an example of why the Forest Service should be better funded so this caliber campground could be available more commonly. - jclifton

Simple campground along Gallatin river. Some hook up sites but we liked the others better. Gravel roads and sites. Pit toilets. Nice space between most sites. Great stop on the way to Yellowstone. - 2blondes

This is an excellent forest service cg. Liked it so much last year, we reserved an Electric site for a weekend, but the $9 fee was unsettling. However, the base rate was just $24, then half off for Passes. Nice place to relax, with no internet, cell,etc. But the daytime highway noise gets loud. No dump station, but 2 water spigots available. Go to Big Sky for a cell signal, stop at the Hungry Moose for great eats, and many recycling bins nearby. - Annie's Song

OUTSTANDING hosts at this lovely park. This has been the best RV park we've experienced in this past year since we started RVing. We drove in and were greeted by a host who explained where our spot would be. Then another host appeared with a small bag of 4 home baked cookies for us and two dog treats for our dog!! They even had our own personal little sign greeting all three of us at the site. The setting was ideal, the sound of the rushing river day and night was peaceful and calming. Each RV site sat right along the river! This couple has thought of everything! A stairway down to the shore line of the river led to picnic tables with umbrellas, a hammock, a LARGE community fire pit, complete with firewood, matches and kindling. There were also two Weber kettle charcoal grills and charcoal, as well as hotdog and marshmallow forks for roasting fun! The small cafe on site boasted necessary supplies in a limited variety. Also, local souvenirs and their own jellies and jams. Breakfast was delicious and served just a few days of the week. Owners lived right on site and across from the cabins, so you know they run an upstanding business. Landscaping was fun and whimsical with lots of attention to details. There was an outdoor patio for dining options and also a game area with corn hole boards, crochet set and large yard dice. - HicksGC

This small park is right on the Gallatin River and we could sit in our living quarters and gaze out at the river. Owners very friendly and there are cabins in this location as well. - DRBurns

Although it's next to the highway, the roar of the Gallatin River a few feet away drowns any traffic noise. Not much shade, sites are large. BEWARE: fill your water tank BEFORE you get there. There is a Drinking by water pump but it won't connect to your hose. Plenty of hiking around the area- caught a rainbow trout feet from my RV. There's a picnic area as well as a boat launch ( Or tubing). Big Sky is close enough to head to for supplies or a cold beer at Lone Pine Brewery. Popular area to camp for fishermen and hunters. If you're into fishing you'll love the area. #1 is closest to the water, drinking spout and bathroom. # 2,3,4 and 9 get some shade from the surrounding pines. Again, no spout to connect your hose to fill your RV tank. Site 014 is available for group day-use picnicking, maximum 50 people; if not reserved, the site is available without a fee. - Mario and Luigi

This is a small US Forest Service Park right along side highway 191. The sites on the river side of the highway would be best (sites 10-15), though I'm sure all the sites are affected by the loud highway noise during the day. The traffic did subside at night, but started again at daylight. The campsites are partly shady, not very level, and not very open, as the undergrowth is very thick. The interior road is paved and easy to navigate. We wouldn't stay again, due to the noise and nowhere to walk from the campground. - sail2blue

A hidden gem 30 miles south of Bozeman about a mile off hwy 191. Scenic and quiet is what you get at this class Forst Service campground. It has sites that are in shade part of the day, but the sun peaks through too. All the sites are next to Swan Creek which will sing you to sleep each night. We had a 30' rig (tip to tail) and had no problems with out site, but I wouldn't recommend anything much bigger. Dry camping, no cell service at all, but a gorgeous place to recharge. Campground host kept the sites very clean. Note the road in is a one lane gravel with pullouts. - UTTransplant

This is a nice, clean RV park with a small store, and restaurant with bar. Small, clean laundry room. We drove to Yellowstone and the drive wasn't bad and the scenery was great. Plenty of areas to walk dogs, and nice view of mountains. - retirednrving

New owners have had the park 1 1/2 years. Nice folks. Clean park with grass and trees. Best WiFi I've seen this year, anywhere! They are putting $ and labor into upgrades. Good bar, nice cafe/restaurant and store. More groceries than most RV stores carry. I'd stay here again and recommend it without hesitation. - grsimpson

This is a very small RV park located just as you enter Ennis from the south. There are no restrooms, showers, or cable but there is 50 amp, water and sewer. This park is hidden gem and is only a couple of blocks from 'downtown' Ennis and a nice Lions Club park is next door with access to the Madison River and several paved paths with benches and picnic tables scattered though it. There is also a small playground and fishing pond for kids. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was because of the lack of restrooms, showers, and cable. The sites are not large but it is usually not full and there are some seasonal sites for workers in the area. We will stay there again when we're in the area. We have a 36' RV. - KarenS144

This is a great spot for a short stay. Nice people and a few shade trees. The view was pretty good and it is very close to town. - carold

The RV park is located within walking distance of the charming town of Ennis and next to a great city park. The city park was great for dogs and has access to the famous Madison river. There are some picnic tables and a charcoal grill available but no fire pits. Owners are very friendly and helped my wife lower our awning while I was fishing. Great place. Note there are no showers or restrooms. - bugsy

Small park, most sites have shade, the owners are very helpful, the bathrooms have been remodeled, they also have a very nice laundry room.The park is in down town Ennis. The WIFI is the best we have ever encountered there is no OTA Television so we were able to stream HuLu, Verizon cell service is good. - Tfrout

My husband and I can highly recommend this relatively small park with good facilities and friendly hosts. We were impressed that the bathrooms and laundry facilities were both recently updated and very clean. The park is very well located, within easy walking distance of the main street, restaurants and shops. The spaces are a little narrow but with a lot of trees that offer friendly shade in summertime. The lawn is well cared for and green. There is good wifi but no cable. We stayed here for nine days. - Barbara from Austin

This is a clean, quiet park. Sites are rather short, narrow, near-level, shady gravel, separated by wide strips of grass and trees. In Autumn, many leaves will fall on your rig. Each site has a picnic table. Voltage is good. There's plenty of room to maneuver.
Verizon LTE works well.
WiFi is strong; I measured 1565.9 kB/s down.
No terrestrial broadcast TV or VHF weather radio.
Laundry: 2 top-loaders ($1.50), 2 dryers ($1.50).
There are 4 clean private showers for the park, but no shower curtains.
Staff are friendly and helpful. - wjzcbn

We stayed at Ennis RV Village for three nights while traveling between Idaho and our visit to the Tetons. The campground is along the Madison River and my husband was eager to get in some fly fishing. The CG is about 45 miles south of I-90 along US 287 and easy access from the main road. CG roads and sites are gravel and we were able to easily maneuver around the park with our 45ft motorhome with car attached. Sites are gravel with a small section of grass between sites and level. We were easily able to level the coach with our jacks. Utilities were mid site and worked well. Water pressure was good. We had good satellite reception and no OTA channels. Although the CG has Wi-Fi we were unable to connect at any point while we were there. We did not use the rest rooms or laundry so cannot comment on that. There is no defined dog park but there are large open, grassy areas to the east and north of the park where folks walked their dog. There is no playground area for kids. Campground staff were very friendly and helpful both on the phone and in person. The campground in general is well kept with metal art and flowers throughout. The views from the campground are wonderful, particularly to the east. We would definitely stay here in the future. - LvR

Agree with the prior review. Staff was very pleasant. Interior roads were easy to navigate in our 43' motorhome. Site was long enough for big rig and tow vehicle plus some. Utilities are well placed and actually had two sewer connections on each site to minimize having to use extensions. Wifi was good. No cable, but we had no trouble using our roof mounted satellite dish. Campground is well landscaped and has spectacular mountain views. A work camper told us the owner did his research and interviewed RVers extensively before he built the park, and he obviously got it right. We definitely would stay again. - GrandpaDan

The owner & staff do much more than is required of them to accommodate guests. My thanks to them for their assistance. Doing that "little bit" more is what makes this park stand out. The park and facilities were always spotlessly clean and kept up. Try The baked goods, "mom's" quality. Definitely deserving of its rating. - Karit1
