I am rating this park strictly as it is advertised. It is a big, mowed field with designated sites, not much more. No hookups.However the place is clean, right on the Yellowstone River, and just north of Gardiner and the north entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Very handy when everything else in the area is full. Though the price might seem a bit high for dry camping, this is Yellowstone country, and dry camping spots in the park are even more. A 10 minute drives takes you to Gardiner, and 5 minutes more gets you to the park entrance. There are picnic tables and some fire pits. Across a small road is the Yellowstone Hot Springs, a private pool. The campground owner also rents out quite a few vacation cabins, so you drop your money in a box at the office - cash only. Note the sign says turn away from the river for camping, but that is a sign for the office. Look for the big field at the entrance to the Yellowstone Hot Springs and pull in. - UTTransplant

This is a way over priced campground and I am sure it is due to its proximity to the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. RVs are crammed together. Our neighbor was not home when we backed in and his awning extended way into our already narrow site not leaving us much room to park. We had to park our tow vehicle at an angle and avoid the big rocks at the edge of each site. The clerk at check in was condescending because we said we were going to try stay inside Yellowstone. This is the most expensive campground we have stayed at and we will not return. - roadking

This was our second stay at Yellowstone RV Park. The staff is exceptionally friendly and thoughtful. They work hard to make sure their customers' needs are met. Our site #7 was a back-in to the river. We loved the relaxing sight and sound of the river out our back windows. There was very little highway noise. Elk and deer visit the campground. The location is very near the north entrance of Yellowstone NP yet away from the busy Gardiner shopping area. - Scott & Nancy

The park is near the Yellowstone River and we had a river view site. The sites were very close to each other. The sites were somewhat difficult to get our rig into and out of. If this park was anywhere else it would be worth half the price. - Shadoe

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

Very friendly check in and escorted service to site. This park sits on a hillside with incredible views in almost any direction and two tiers of RV sites, top level holds the larger RV's. The road in is a little tight and the road up to the second tier is one lane but the roads in the top tier are very wide. If you are willing to back in, sites 45,46,and 48 offer a breath taking view of the Yellowstone mountains and river. Our site (33) was very narrow and we were not able to extend our awning due to small tree. Sites are gravel and we did not have to level. Good cable connection and Wifi. Limited Verizon service. Showers and baths are on the lower level and you have a nice steep walk to get there but they were very clean. Very small fenced in area for dogs to walk. They are not allowed to do any business on any grass surface, including your own site. No play area for children. Narrow road up to the upper level but interior roads on the upper level were very wide and easy to negotiate even for big rigs. Owing to the proximity to the Yellowstone west entrance, I would definitely pick this park to stay in again. - Trainspotter

Our site faced away from the view that seems to be their selling item. They have a community campfire area that is not avail to the campers and their fire starter did not come as we were told he/she would. No campfires at your site which I can respect, but no alternative for some perfect evenings and wildlife viewing opportunities. - DandA83

Wonderful location for exploring Yellowstone. Less then 2 miles to the North gate. Quite and convenient. Park site on hillside above Gardiner, MT with great views into Yellowstone Some sites have wonderful views. In site 48 we have a view out our back window out over the Yellowstone River, the small community of Gardiner and into the park. We can even see the line at the entry gate! Interesting touch, site 48 has utilities on both sides so a fifth wheel may back in with view out the back or a motorhome may pull in forward with the view out the front! - Dennis M

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

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 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

If entering from north Best place to stay for a day or two to get your bearings straight for a tour of Yellowstone. No reservations, first-come first serve . All sites or pool throughs ( Big rig friendly ). In summer could be hot because of south east exposure . Close to the town of Gardiner for groceries if need be . Only complaint wish people could slow down in Campground some people flew by my campsite at 25 to 30 miles an hour to fast, we would stay here again . - monaco cruiser

One must show up early to get a site because all the Yellowstone campgrounds fill up early in the day. The Ranger assigns the spot and because we had an Access Pass, we were assigned a handicapped spot. Site was asphalt with a tent platform, picnic table, fire ring, and a bear box for food storage-regular sites are gravel. No hook ups. Many of the sites have low hanging trees that would affect even the shortest RV. We loved staying in Yellowstone and will return. - roadking

The campground is conveniently situated near the Mammoth Hot Springs and provides a spectacular view. In the evening, elk wander around the campground, providing excellent photo opportunities. However, not having a generator, we really missed having power. It got very cold at night. We would probably not return to this campground because of the lack of hookups. - John A Guderian
