We stayed here about October 3rd they had just close for the season September 30th but a sign at the camp ground said free to use so we stayed one night water was shut off but pit toilets were still fully stocked with toilet paper and vary clean. The next day we stopped in the town of Red Lodge to eat we found a vary good Mexican place called Mas Taco they had a patio so we could bring our dog with to eat, Vary good food it was Excellent !

“This is a wonderful campground that feels like the "old west". ”

Overall Rating

We were lucky enough to camp here in September, after the summer season. There were very few others in the campground, but it looked like it fills on the weekends.

Parkside Campground is located 12 miles south of Red Lodge, Montana, just off the scenic Beartooth Highway.

The campground sits in the shadow of the Beartooth Range. Wildlife, including grizzly bear, deer and elk, make their home in the surrounding area.

Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are accessible vault toilets and drinking water. Trash needs to be deposited at the Greenough Lake Campground.

The town of Red Lodge, Montana offers a variety of dining venues. It is a cute town with a grocery store and amenities you might need.

The campground is so close to the Beartooth Highway, and it can be enjoyed easily without having to pull the trailer over it...which I think would be white knuckle pulling a trailer.
The Beartooth Highway was deemed "the most beautiful drive in America" by the late Charles Kuralt. It crosses the rugged Beartooth Mountains from Red Lodge to Cooke City, Montana, and is the highest elevation highway in the Northern Rockies. A MUST drive.

There is no cell service.
Firewood is available from the camp host.
