What a beautiful place to stay. The staff went out of their way to help out. We are definitely coming back.

Clean, easy level sites with some privacy. Friendly staff

The cabins were VERY close to each other. I could hear my neighbor snoring. The patio on my cabin faced another cabin. There was a big travel trailer with a back deck backed up to the back of my cabin; next to our window. They had 3 barking dogs. It was over crowded. The people in the store were busy and seemed overwhelmed. The cabin was clean and spacious. Bathroom was nearby. I had cabin 16.

We arrived at our cabin late and there was no light on. It was difficult to find in the dark. There was tarp attached to the building’s roof (which I took pictures of).

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We had a guest identify a leak in the roof earlier in the busy season. We have been so busy and understaffed due to the COVID. There was not a window where we could have closed this cabin long enough to get the work done. Once we slow down we will close the cabin to start work on the roof.

Nice rural setting. Very nice staff. Our kids absolutely loved the playground here, very unique equipment. Sights are a little narrow.

Used as a base for visiting north Yellowstone. Nice location on the river with mountain views. Decent dog park and activities for children. Campsites are not large but adequate.

What a excellent campground! The staff, the grounds, and facilities are all top notch. I would recommend this over and over to anyone traveling to Montana or Yellowstone! We stayed 4 nights and loved it. Clean bathrooms, pool, laundry and a great gift shop plus groceries and NO BUGS. Can not rate this high enough !

Great place to stay, even for just one night. On our trek west.

Just a couple of incidents with noise/ inappropriate language but it was addressed immediately when reported to staff. Overall, very nice place in a great location.

The location of your KOA is great! However the configuration of the pull thru sites is terrible. Too congested. The place needs to be groomed!

Instructed to not use the bathrooms upon check in even though we paid for full hookups. Allegedly saving them for the tenters? Taking this covid-19 a bit too far.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It seems funny that it's August and I have to explain this like it's May, but most of our staff is over 60 as is the bulk of our guests. We have visitors from all across the country. We are doing what we can to not spread the virus. We do give out the bathroom code to anyone who needs it. Stay safe

Good people. Great location.
Jul 29, 2020
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall the park is showing wear, the back-in site areas not well kept.
Jul 29, 2020
Amazing two nights. Wish we had longer to stay! Nice private spot.
Jul 29, 2020
Incredibly friendly staff! Beautiful location on the Yellowstone River, near the North entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The grounds were well-kept with many amenities, even with the new health precautions in place. We would definitely visit this KOA again!

Friendly, beautiful place!

Great customer service by the friendly staff.

Staff was very friendly and the accommodations were clean and nice
Jul 29, 2020
out of the way. uneven sites

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the review. This review will be helpful for guest who do not like "out of the way" KOA's. As it were, a lot of our guests enjoy the lack of noise and dark nights for stargazing instead of being close to town. Safe travels and happy camping.
Jul 29, 2020
Some of the staff was very crabby when we asked questions and the cabins are way to close together. Not really camping. It’s more like a hotel

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the review. We have addressed our staff about the crabby issue and hope that our customer service is back on the climb. I will be paying extra attention due to the number of reviews about crabby staff. We hope that you get a chance to come back to experience our improved guest service.

Well thought-out campground that is kept up. A little cramped, but that is the only issue. Nice people, nice facility. Thank you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the great review! WE understand that our campground that was built in '67 wasn't designed for the large RV's of today. But we are happily updating our KOA to try to accommodate such big rigs. We know which sections need the attention and we are working towards those improvements. Thanks!
Jul 29, 2020
Front desk lady wasn't very nice. She wasn't busy but made me wait. Was fairly rude and not friendly

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear about your interaction with our staff. I have addressed a couple of complaints about our staff with the staff and we are hoping that it is no longer an issue. We hope that you get a chance to come back so that you can see our improved service.
Jul 29, 2020
Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Kind, professional, and helpful in every way. This is the first KOA I have ever stayed at, and I have definitely been sold on the quality of service and facilities. Will be back in Livingston FOR SURE and looking forward to visiting other KOAs in the future. Thanks so much!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our KOA so much! Especially as your first KOA experience! We hope that we get another chance to see you folks. Safe travels and happy camping.

Rented a cabin for the family. Exactly what we were looking for! We came for a long weekend from Bozeman just to get away! Cabin was great and we had everything we needed! Very clean and comfortable! Friendly staff! We will definitely be back again!
Jul 28, 2020
Great communication, friendly staff, well kept camp sites, reasonable prices, one staff gave kids some Home Depot projects that were well enjoyed. The road is a little loud at our camp site but over all a very nice stay!

We had a great stay. The park and cabin were very clean. The views and scenery are amazing!
Jul 28, 2020
It would be nice if the pool was outdoor. Also was disappointed when a KOA employee would not allow my kids, ages 2 and 4, to enter the store because they did not know how to correctly wear a mask for COVID-which is not even required on small children.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Unfortunately with COVID flaring up some of our work kampers are pretty nervous. This does not excuse rude behavior. I have addressed this issue with the staff and hope that it does not continue to be an issue at our KOA. Also unfortunately, the pool needs to be inside to keep wildlife out.

We liked the location of the Kabin - in the trees. However, ours had a blue tarp on the roof. Leaky?? Others were vacant. Not sure why we got that one. Also, directions to the Kabin were unclear. The little road that looks like it just goes to K4 should be marked to indicate it goes to K8 plus others. Confusing.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I don't understand what the problem is with the tarp. Yes it does not look great but as you mentioned, we found a leak in there mid season. We are too busy to shut down that cabin to fix the roof now. It still works as intended. We will fix it asap. Until then would you rather not have the tarp?
Jul 28, 2020
We enjoyed the campground. Had a nice space. Nothing fancy for the price, but ok. Enjoyed a river raft trip with Rowdy, who advertised in your brochure.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're glad that you were able to get out there with Rowdy. He is an excellent fly fishing guide and we are proud to advertise for him in our KOA map. We hope that you folks get a chance to come back and see us again. Safe travels and happy camping.

We’re not used to so many people so it was more our issue. Keep on top of the knapweed, it is so insidious

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is a great review. If crowds aren't for you, this KOA midsummer might not be the best place for a visit. But the knapweed comment is spot on. I had just had a talk with staff about spraying the knapweed, then saw this review! Good eye! We ARE on it! haha Hope to see you again when it's quieter.

This was our 2nd stay there. Relaxing & easy access.
Jul 27, 2020
Spaces felt like they were right on top of each other. Staff was super friendly. Facilities could use some landscaping, but overall the camp ground was clean. Probably could use some more staff.
Jul 27, 2020
My grandkids had a blast in the pool and the wonderful playground.
Jul 27, 2020
Great stay. Highly recommend.
Jul 27, 2020
Hey the pool was open, staff was friendly, River rite there, it was ok
Jul 27, 2020
Great landscape, great people and a wonderful stay! As always Thank you!
Jul 27, 2020
Our site by the river was fabulous & we had wonderful customer service. We were towing a car/trailer and there wasn't room at our campsite. A young man (sorry I forgot his name, but he has a refurbished school bus) was so great to help us take our car off the trailer and get the trailer moved to another space. When we left, he helped get our car back on and secured. Thanks so much!!

This is our second time staying here for a couple nights when we go through Yellowstone. Our kids love looking for the butterflies for the scavenger hunt and playing in the playground. We take walks down to the Yellowstone River and watch the sunset. Very well kept and everyone who works there is polite.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We appreciate you folks coming back for a visit! We are glad to hear that you enjoy your stays here. Hopefully you can come back when the COVID is over so you can experience more of our family activities! WE look forward to seeing you again. Safe travels and happy camping!
Jul 27, 2020
Great as always!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We sure do appreciate you folks! We look forward to seeing you again in a couple of weeks! Thanks for the review and the treats!

We had the deluxe premium site by the river two chairs by the dirty patio were broken, one held together by duct tape

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thanks for the information. I did not know about the chairs and will talk with staff about using duct tape to fix it. Now that I know about the chairs, they will be replaced. Though I'm not sure how clean you expect a patio to be. We clean each site after each guest departs.

Great place. We spent a week here last month and have nothing but positive to say. It's location to the river is perfect. Clean, friendly staff, quiet and overall a pleasant experience. WiFi could be improved. It's very weak and an easy fix, if the park chose to upgrade. Especially for the price of a KOA. The dog park does have room to expand, it's a bit cramped for anything other than a small dog like a chihuahua. However, there are plenty of places to take your dog for a walk.

After traveling through the Badlands and Custer, we decided to stop at Livingston, Montana KOA. This was another stop on our journey out West. The location is right along the highway and to find it, you must go down an unsettling long side road. This KOA was by far one of the best I've been to. The grounds, bathrooms, facilities and other amenities were very well kept up. It is a beautiful location with the Yellowstone river flowing right next to it. We stayed in one of their cabins for the night. The cabin was extremely clean with no bugs or anything. The place is family oriented and has a lot of activities for the family. There isn't any places to eat around there so plan around that. This location also made me feel safe. I will be staying here if I ever get the chance again!
