Primitive camping: no electric, water or sewer.
There are 2 sections, the first had more people and all the pull through sites taken, including a prime pull through right on the river by a guy with a 2 man tent. Several back-in sites also.
The back end of the park is a short druve on a gravel road. Mostly pull through back here. Less access to the river.
Many trees, but not enough for shade. The sites are huge, include a picnic table and fire pit. Distance between sites is amazing.

Nice City Park For Dry Camping
We stayed in the back section right on the Yellowstone River in our 28’ Airstream while traveling to Billings on a Thursday night. Fairly quiet and felt safe. (Police did drive through on Friday morning.)
Roads into park and most sites definitely could use a little attention as there is a lot of wash out. Some road noise from across the river but that stops around 9 pm. Train noise but minimal. We determined that there must be an outdoor shooting range nearby after being startled from gunshots. That stopped a little while after dark. There are two donation boxes however they are both broken. No collection box at the bottom. We would have gladly donated to the cause.
All in all a good stop for us.

Sites are good piece apart which is great. They take donations. Only thing is I wish people wouldn't drive so fast in campground, it gets really really dusty.

Lots Of Spots
There are 2 sections,upper and lower. We stayed in Lower (less traffic). You have to go back an extra mile. Most spots could use some grading. We could also hear the trains nearby. There were many pull through spots. We found an nice pull through at the back and had a restful evening.
We have a 28’ TT. It rained when we were here. I’m sure it’s much nicer when the sun is shining. We just stayed one night on a stopover.

If it weren’t for the location and cost I’d probably give the park only one star. I’d definitely give it five stars if they’d do just minimal road and site work. Sites are along the Yellowstone River and are well spaced and quiet. I dry camped here for one night. I did leave a donation...hope it goes to improvements.

There are a lot of pull through spots and unlike the pay to stay campgrounds, the sites are a good distance from each other. I'll stay here again.
