We stopped by Billings for a night to allow us some access to banking and shopping facilities. There are not many choices for parking a rig overnight even though Cabela’s along I-90 is an option. It was extremely hot and humid and we opted for hookups to allow us to run our A/C. Who knew Montana was so hot and sticky?
RV Park: Billings KOA
Location: Billings, Montana along the Yellowstone River
Cost: $80.25 (includes tax)
Services: FHU (50 AMP)
Comments: A typical RV Park with small, tight spots and quite expensive. BUT you are in Billings and right along the Yellowstone River. This KOA is considered a destination park (KOA Holiday) as opposed to their overnight parks (KOA Journey) and therefore a higher price. BUT it was well worth the A/C as we haven’t felt that kind of hot, humid, muggy, and buggy weather in years!
The sites vary in size and some have full hookups and some are dry camping. There was very little consistency between sites. Some roads were quite narrow for big rigs and some were wide open. It felt like an old park which has been added to over the years.
The park offers miniature golf, an on-site restaurant, and a swimming pool. And yes, there were lots of families here with kids using this place as a destination campground. And yes, we were glad we were staying only 1 night.
