While the KOA campground franchise is now an RV travel institution with locations across America, Billings KOA was actually the very first of its campgrounds, built in 1962.The campground is located on the banks of the Yellowstone River, just north of Billings’s downtown area. For recreation, visitors to Billings KOA can take advantage of a swimming pool, mini-golf course, and bike rentals. There’s also a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day, which is a welcome convenience after hours of strenuous outdoor adventures.The park also offers Wi-Fi to keep you connected with friends and family back home while you’re RV camping at the KOA. Pets are welcome, and there’s a fenced dog walking area inside the campground; the beautiful Josephine Park is also only a mile or so to the north if your canine companion needs a larger space to their stretch their legs.You’ll find all the modern conveniences of an RV campground here, including 50 amp electrical hookups, a dump station, a Kamping Kitchen, and laundry facilities. If you want to get together with fellow RV travelers, KOA organizes basketball games, BBQs, and pancake breakfasts where you can socialize and get to know the community.You won’t need to travel far to find great attractions when you're camping at Billings KOA; the Yellowstone Art Museum, Wise Wonders Children’s Museum, and the Smithsonian-affiliated Western Heritage Center are just a few miles away. You’ll find an eclectic mix of restaurants there too, along with a brewery or two if you fancy a cold one.The Great OutdoorsMontana is famous for its high-quality outdoor recreation, and Yellowstone County is no exception. If you’re looking for an easy day trip when you book an RV in Billings, check out the Rimrocks on the northwestern corner of the city. The massive sandstone cliffs are crisscrossed by several hiking trails, all of which have amazing views of the Billings skyline. Visitors who are afraid of heights might want to give the cliffs a wide berth, but otherwise, the mostly flat trails are suitable for all ages and fitness levels.Pictograph Cave State Park is also just outside of Billings, and some of the state’s most well-preserved rock art from ancient Native American tribes can be found here. A network of trails forms a pleasant hiking loop, dotted with interactive displays, between the park’s three massive sandstone caves.During Montana’s hot summers, the nearby Stillwater River is a popular spot for floating and angling between the towns of Absarokee and Columbus. Inner tubes can be rented in Billings and floats usually last just a couple of hours during June and July when the river is flowing fast. The Stillwater is considered a blue ribbon fishery too, with abundant stocks of rainbow and brown trout.

Exploring the City

Billings is the largest city in Montana and has some of the greatest varieties of shopping and dining options in the state. You’ll find everything from steakhouses to vegan cuisine along with hoppy microbreweries and trendy wine bars. Tourists from all over Montana and southern Alberta come looking for great deals at the Rimrock Shopping Center too.Billings is also located along Interstate 90, one of America’s most important east-west transportation corridors. You’ll find a number of truck stops along it and in the nearby town of Laurel, and these will likely offer fuel options along with amenities like showers and dump stations.If you’re bringing the kids along for this motorhome camping adventure, you might want to pencil in a day for ZooMontana, one of the only full-scale zoos in the state. Over 100 different species call the zoo home, including wolves, grizzly bears, and lynx. The zoo focuses on animals native to Montana and educates visitors on how their populations can be protected for future generations.RV camping history buffs will love the Yellowstone County Museum, which features some great exhibits focused on the exploits of Lewis and Clark and the Native American culture found in the Yellowstone Valley. It’s a fairly small museum on the grounds of Billings Logan International Airport but is densely packed with the fascinating details of Montana’s history. Afterward, step outside to do a little plane spotting.While Montana doesn’t get too many big-name concerts, when it does, they usually take place inside the Metrapark Arena at the Montana Fairgrounds on the east side of town. Check the schedule to see who’s playing while you’re in town; there’s everything from twangy country singers to head-banging metal bands.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
