“The price is right!”

While this park isn't the prettiest place ever, you just can't beat it for the price of FREE (donations encouraged, but even then, it's a screaming deal!) There are plenty of dry camping sites for all types of campers, both pull-through and back-in, in two loops separated by a 1/2-mile gravel road. The one in the back is a bit more pri... more

“Beautiful free spot on the river! ”

Reviewed Sep 02, 2018

Overall Rating

Free camping is great, free camping when it's this beautiful? That is the reason I love living on the road. It was really easy to find a spot. There are two sections of the camping area, if you don't find a spot in the first area, keep driving and the second area is a little bit more secluded, which is where we stayed. We faced an open... more

“Beautiful location right on the Yellowstone River for RVs & tent camping.”

Easy access about 2 miles from I90. Very friendly volunteer greeted me soon after arriving. On the weekend there was an annual community event & the area filled up. No problems, lots of nice people, lovely community. There is plenty of room. Lots of choices on where to park: under trees or in the open or away from everyone. Seve... more

“Free, quiet campground”

Reviewed Aug 04, 2018

Thanks to Columbus for providing a clean property with large, easy to access sites that include fire rings and picnic tables. It's just south of town on the river and quiet. No hook ups. Some great sites right on the river.

Reviewed Jul 28, 2018

We enjoyed it a lot. We stayed near the boat ramp. They have pit toilets and water available. We enjoyed swimming in the river and just the fact that it was free. It was quiet most of the time. People tubing and coming to put boats in the river was the main traffic. They do offer free firewood also which was nice.

The grounds themselves are very nice. We looked at the lower campgrounds and found a lovely spot by the river but unfortunately, whoever had camped there previously left a lot of trash (a whole garbage bag full) and there were ants everywhere. The lower campgrounds also seemed a little more wild, but it could've just been the crowd tha... more
