Relax, rejuvenate, reconnect on the Yellowstone River in beautiful Paradise Valley. Your gateway to Yellowstone National Park!

Here at the Livingston/Paradise Valley KOA, things are more relaxed with a genuine Montana feel. Built in 1967, our KOA still has some of that old charm. This is something that we pride ourselves on, as we work on updating the campground, attempting to keep what makes this place charming while updating what requires attention. What we lack in modern amenities we make up in true Montana hospitality and gorgeous views. This award-winning KOA boasts 500 feet of Yellowstone River frontage in one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. Just 9 miles south of I-90 and 40 miles north of Yellowstone, this KOA is a great base camp for exploring the National Park. Reserve one of the Deluxe Cabins or Deluxe RV Patio Sites right on the river. Or park your RV in one of the mountain-view Pull-Thru RV Sites. Just minutes away, you'll find hiking, biking and horseback riding. Historic Livingston hosts a true Montana rodeo, fine dining, live music and museums. Limited services April 1st - April 30th & October 1st - October 15th. Pool and Breakfast: Memorial Day Weekend - Labor Day Weekend. Your host: Gregory Lesky. The road getting to our KOA is, at times, a little rough. The state is planning to redo the road, but that project is a few years out. If you take your time and drive slowly, it shouldn't be too bad.

Local Area

Yellowstone River

Our campground is located right on the famous Yellowstone River. Book a guided fishing trip, rent kayaks or a raft and float, or fish right from the bank of our 500 feet of river frontage! You can also fish the spring creeks in Paradise Valley, or head to the Madison and Gallatin Rivers in the surrounding area.


Yellowstone National Park

We are 43 miles from the North entrance, featuring the famous Roosevelt Arch, seen below. This entrance to the park has less traffic coming through and you get to experience the gorgeous drive through Paradise Valley and Yankee Jim Canyon on your way in.


Chico Hot Springs

Head to Chico Hot Springs for a leisurely soak in the natural hot spring pools. Located just 15 miles south of our campground, this is a great spot to relax at the base of the mountains. Enjoy the views and hit the restaurant and bar if you don't feel like a swim!



Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness and National Forest

We are located at the base of the majestic Absaroka-Beartooth mountain range in the Pine Creek drainage. There are many great hikes in the immediate vicinity and surrounding creeks and drainage areas.
