We stayed here for our trip to Yellowstone. It was very practical for access to the Yellowstone north gate, but also close enough to Bozeman to allow a trip to the Museum of the Rockies. The site was quiet and very family friendly, with a great playground and lots of activities. The kids had fun searching for all the little figurines hidden throughout the site. We stayed at a number of RV parks around Yellowstone during the trip and this was our favorite.

This property is located approximately 40 minutes from the North entrance to Yellow Stone and 15 minutes from Downtown Livingston. The road from the highway to the campground needs repaved and is filled with pot holes and bumps but this is no reflection on the camp just a heads up. When we arrived at the campground we were met by KOA staff that were pleasant, professional and knowledgeable. They answered my questions with ease and had a nice gentleman escort us to our camp via golf cart who also assisted us with guiding our trailer into the space. In the evening, we were provided free smores at the front desk / gift shop. Our spot had a patio set with views of the Mountain Ranges, the Yellowstone River and Paradise Valley. The mosquitos were a little annoying but to be expected given the proximity of the river to our campsite. The picnic tables in some camps, the pool, and laundry facility were maintained for cleanliness but could use some updates as they were showing their age. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and peaceful night of rest at this location.

The road to the KOA was terrible potholes, bumps etc. Needs repaving. Maintenece is not a high priority. No grass just rock. Kamp K-9 was a joke it was not convenient to take our amall dogs. No grass just dirt. The plants need water. The only watering done was at the residence.

We were lucky enough to go to Yellowstone the weekend it opened its Montana entrances after closures happened for Covid. I think it was the opening weekend for the Livingston/Paradise Valley KOA as well. It was a fabulous location - about 45 minutes from Yellowstone, so an easy morning drive before entering the park, and not too far away at night. Prices were incredible for the area - but the service and facilities were fabulous. Bathrooms are a little dated, but that is not an issue for my family. We enjoyed it so much, we came back and stayed again in September!

Campground is right on the Yellowstone River. Cute cabins right on the shore that looked cool. We stayed in a full hook-up pull-through RV spot on the other side of the campground and it was an easy walk to the river. Gorgeous views of the mountains all around. Nice quiet atmosphere. About a 40 minute drive to Yellowstone which we were happy to do to avoid staying in West Yellowstone. Easy booking and check-in, super helpful employees. We needed a little later checkout and they accommodated us with no problems. Albertsons grocery right off the highway about 10 minutes away. Saw reviews saying they didn’t like the highway noise but we heard none of that. Campground is about 1.5 miles off the highway-all we heard was cattle from the nearby ranch, and the river. Only reason for knocking off a star is that the facilities are pretty worn. Our patio was rough and the picnic table was pretty rickety. Laundry facilities (mostly) worked but machines look like they haven’t been replaced in 30 years.

Thanks for the great review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. There's a lot of good information in this review! We are in the process of making all types of updates to our KOA, which was built in 1967. I started running this KOA 3 years ago and making these updates has been my top priority. Plus this season proved to be challenging due to COVID 19 with such things as being understaffed. We hope that you come back to see us again as we make these updates and we aren't caught off guard by a pandemic.

We spent one night at this KOA. It is on the banks of the Yellowstone River about 50 miles north of Gardiner Wyoming's north entrance to Yellowstone National Park so it has a beautiful location. We rented one of the camper cabins with a half bath. It has the ability to sleep five although it would be a tight fit. You bring your own linens and blankets The bed was comfortable. The cabin was spotlessly clean. Although we did not have the opportunity to use all the cabin amenities our cabin did have a refriderator and microwave as well as webber grill on the porch and a fire ring. The cabin also had a large swing on the porch. The camp store seemed to be well stocked and had a variety of items to purchase. The woman at the store was friendly and helpful.

Our deluxe cabin was nice, but probably not worth the $200/night we paid for it. It was very cute and surprisingly roomy. The rustic furniture was nice. The loft for the kids was huge, us parents even went up two nights to watch family movies together (note that it was not two full size mattresses as stated, but rather one full, one twin, and one that was maybe a twin XL? Thankfully my boys brought sleeping bags and it worked out for us.) It was nice to have a separate room for the parents, but the bed was terribly uncomfortable and gave me back spasms. The room also had a huge closet, I would’ve brought hangers had I known. The dirty cabin floors turned my feet grey and the sofa bed was disgusting inside, I’m so glad we didn’t have to use it. The neighbors were very close - we heard all their conversations and also had an RV parked literally 3 feet from us. Besides proximity, the outdoor space was amazing, with two decks and a patio with tons of seating. Loved the gas grill and river view. The hot water for dishes and showers was fantastic, and there were plenty of dishes and utensils provided. The indoor pool smelled like sewage, even the kids didn’t want to be in there so we skipped it. We couldn’t find the hammock park, but the kids liked the playground and outdoor gym. The ladies at the front desk were super nice, and items in the camp store were reasonably priced - which is good because very basic things we thought should be included were not, like hand soap, paper towels, garbage bags, a dish scrubber, hand towels, and rugs. We come to the area a lot and will probably stay again, but in a smaller/cheaper cabin or campsite.

Thanks for the review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. There's a lot of good information in this review! Some of it is a little off. There are three twin mattresses in the loft of this cabin. The bed and the hide-a-bed are sold to us a full size beds. We have let go of the housekeepers from this season that were not doing an adequate job even though we had worked with them many times to try to improve their performance. When stepping inside the pool house, there can be an odor from a drain in the maintenance room. If you step past the maintenance door, you won't even smell chlorine as we keep our pool spotlessly clean, bleaching the deck each evening and vacuuming each morning. The hammock park as well as all of the other activities will be back next season so long as the COVID allows it. :) We hope that you come back to see us again as we make these updates and we aren't caught off guard by a pandemic.

Compared to the other KOA we stayed at, this one was cooler. I think this is more of a campground than the "journey" type. We had a nice little tent site with electricity, right across from the bathrooms. The bathrooms were a little strange, there were constantly people going in and out and they all seemed to know each other and peek into the windows, which creeped me out. But we didn't have any issues at all. We came after hours so we didn't deal with any of the staff to know how they are.

Wow, where to begin. First of all, we stayed here because it is close to my brother's home and we thought it would be a great little getaway. We arrived and checked in just fine. This is all happening during COVID, they looked at us like we were crazy for wearing masks. We get to our cabin that has clearly not been cleaned, huge cobwebs everywhere. Thought okay that's fine its camping no big deal. Went to the bathroom it was beyond disgusting. We checked the one bathroom for 2 days straight and the soap was not replaced. My husband let the front office know about this and they argued with him and then finally went and filled it. We watched a woman come and clean the cabin next to us, she took two minutes, and from what we could tell only took the trash out, no cleaning at all. Again, this is all during COVID. Lastly, we made a mistake on our reservation and thought we had booked for one more night. When the staff came by to tell us we had to leave we asked to check at the front office to verify that we made a mistake. The woman at the computer refused to stop what she was doing to help us and then once she did they announced over the radio that we had 6 minutes to pack up all of our stuff or we would be charged for another night. This all happened at 1130am, check out was at 11 but we were out on a hike. Check-in isn't until 3 pm I'm not sure why they could only allow us 6 minutes when they had 3 hours until check-in and it takes them 2 minutes to "clean" the cabin. Horrible customer service. Very upsetting experience. None of our family will ever stay there again. And I will be passing this on to everyone I know.

This is a somewhat busy park and very close to Yellowstone. Given the location I was impressed. We were not on the river but could easily walk to it. Nice valley, with fresh air, birds, etc.the site was just fine for our 31 foot rv.
