You are lucky if you find this park on the first approach. There are no signs. You will see a blue camping arrow on the 437 exit stop sign. Nothing after that until you realize you better call the park. The park will tell you, you are going to Billings. It turns out the park is at the Sinclair gas station by the stop sign. You will pull into a tiny, weary, old park made for 26' trailers. The sites are gravel and level. The electric is good for 30 amps. We are fortunate enough to have a 34', three slide motor home. We had a snug fit. We unhooked our tow and parked it in front as not to impede traffic. There are permanent people living in 26' trailers. It is a comfortable park. Grass but no shade. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small park good for overnights. Some seasonal workers living in the park. Park is connected to a truck stop that has a good restaurant. The park is close to Billings Mt. Some smell from the refinery in the evening lasts about ten to twenty minutes. They have weekly and monthly rates. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There was 3 different pricings $12 for dry camping, $15 for electric only sites (said to be 3 but the one we found looked not safe for electric hookup) and $20 for electric/water site which was the majority of the sites. There was a shower house. We chose to dry camp. Said to be 7 day max stay, but some looked to have been there longer with their big fridges outside, workers with their campers and tents all laid out, there was no one attending the window once you finally find the office, shower house was not kept very clean, some of the ones staying there looked a little on the iffy side. We did not feel comfortable allowing the kids (15 12 10) to venture even to the shower house alone. We stayed here 2 nights 1 day out of necessity of a stop over but wouldn't stay there again. Did not feel safe walking to the shower house due to some of the people staying there. Guys and Girls going to the same side together and my son walked into the men room while a couple was doing their thing in the shower, not impressed esp. when they told him it was OK he could watch, fortunately my son (10) came back out. Park was quiet enough but wasn't willing to leave the rig unattended. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent 5 nights here holed up over the 4th of July holiday. 30amp service and water for $15 a night. Lots of mosquitoes. The lots are irregular in size & layout, but they're OK. Some will easily take big rigs, some are pull through. Bathroom wasn't clean. There were 2 or 3 homeless individuals & families living there in tents or small older trailers, they were very nice & friendly, no problem. CG across the Yellowstone River from water treatment plant & refinery but no odors, a little noise. Some train traffic but not bad. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Posted rate is $10 (dry camp?), or $15 for electric but some sites are 30 amp and others 15, and not all have water. No one was around to collect $,nor have the shower key, nor answer questions. There are big shade trees along the river and big sites, but you get the smell of the oil refinery on the other side of the river, traffic on the highway, and some worrisome types in the campground. Plus plenty of mosquitoes. Make it a one- nighter and keep going. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty basic place that could use some attention - but for 15 bucks, it was well worth the price. We had electricity & water hookups, and showers are available. ($5 key deposit for showers - they give you your $5 back when you return the key). It was close to the freeway so noisy during the day - not bad enough to keep us awake at night. There are trees, but we were able to get satellite signal. We stayed just as an overnighter so it was fine. I'd stay there again for an overnighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of those great values. Electric and water. That's it. But on the Yellowstone River. Adjacent to the quaint town of Laurel, between Billings and Bozeman, and north of Red Lodge and the Beartooth Mountains. A dump is a few blocks into town at no charge. Lots of trees, but were able to get satellite at one space. Stayed here 3 nights. Visited with many RVers here that make this a stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
