15 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

Absolutely our favorite place that we stayed during our 2 weeks traveling. The view was great. The cafe, open to guests, was delicious. We loved meeting people at the community camp site. We were greeted with cookies and s'more packages by the owners who have done an excellent job providing a fun and charming place to stay. My son in law who joined us stayed in one of the cabins and it was clean and we loved the decor. I can't say enough about this place. They suggested a place to rent ATVs and we rode into the mountains which was so fun and then directed us to Turners ranch road where we saw so much wild life. The kids loved it! We would love to stay here again. - JErickson

Small beautiful park with gracious (and fun, personable) owners Cute artsy touches throughout the campground, gorgeous delicious and fun Fri/Sat breakfast available in the cafe (make a reservation, the locals also love it!). Even though they don't have shower and laundry due to size constraints, we love staying there. Cabins also look sweet, but we were in our RV.
The sites on the lower part by the river are especially quiet and nice, but any site is riverfront. Bigger rigs fit best up top. No dog park, so be sure to pick up your own dog's crap. We had to pick up gunk left from others it was pretty obvious which Turds left the turds. - DonNotz

We had a very small spot with a little deck that backed up to the river. So small, that our neighbor could not extend their awning all the way lest it bump into our slide, and our sewer was practically underneath the RV. Our spot was # 5, which is opposite the entry drive (meaning that it was relatively easy to back our huge 5th wheel into the tight spot). Parking the dually in front of the RV was very tight, and the only real option. Other spots might not be as friendly for larger rigs. There is absolutely no cell phone service (even our We-Boost with a directional antenna only got us 1-2 bars of Verizon analog only), but their Wifi was EXCELLENT. This is a cute, smaller park, with what seemed like quite a few longer-term renters and a very friendly staff. There is a BBQ and a communal fire pit (free firewood!) along the river, which is shallow and fast moving (e.g. not really good for dog swimming). Croquet and Cornhole can help pass the time. 10 minutes to Big Sky, and there is not much else in the area. They do have a breakfast cafe on site, but we did not try that. We might stay here again. - VagabondLove

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

Great little RV Park, basically a diamond in the rough. Very friendly owner and work campers. All services worked great including strong WiFi. We would recommend this park. The only reason for not rating the park a "10", seasonal guests, including a work camper, who makes sure you follow the rules, allow their dogs to roam free. So watch where you step especially in the parking area also if you don't won't your property peed on don't leave anything out. This is allowed even though the posted rules state leash requirements. If you have pets, then when these dogs are roaming they will be in your yard to check out your pet. - cepelfrey

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
