Every KOA Billings RV Park campsite category has unique details and we’ve listed some of the most important ones below.

Pull Thru, 50/30/20 Amps, Full Hookups, KOA Patio

One of their 4 patio sites, this one features a deluxe patio may excite you...or is that just me? It comes with a porch swing, fire pit, upgraded table with umbrella (perfect for some family meals), and beautiful landscaping on Big Rig - Friendly Sites. It’s perfect for a camping Billings MT experience.

Pull Thru, 50/30/20 Amps, Water/Electric, KOA Patio 

Among the water and electric sites in KOA, this one’s the most popular one.

Big advantages include being close to the restrooms, pool, playground, and office. It’s also spacious enough for you to enjoy.

Pull Thru, 50/30/20 Amps, Water/Electric (no patio)  

These sites are close to their Family Style Restrooms which is a good advantage. However, these are only open from June to August but are easier on the budget.

Pro tip: Choose this site category if you’re visiting on hot days, there’s plenty of shade!

Back In, 50/30/20 Amps, Full Hookups, KOA Patio 

We stayed in this Billings KOA campsite during our visit!

The cemented patio made our stay so much cleaner by helping to keep any dirt out of our RV. There was a porch swing, fire ring, and upgraded table & umbrella here.

If you have an extra vehicle, this is also the best choice since their big rig sites are 65’ long and can accommodate your other vehicle.

Back In, 50/30/20 Amps, Water/Electric  

Do you want more space for a back-in price? Then this site is for you!

Enjoy your stay in this along-the-pond quiet setting. It even has all the amenities of their pull thru water and electric sites.

Back In, 30/20 Amps, Water/Electric   

If you have a van or small RV, this campsite might be a great choice for you. As a more budget friendly choice for your stay, this can be a great option for a 25-40 foot RV.

Amenities at KOA Billings MT

One of the best parts about staying at the KOA Holiday is all of their amenities. Especially after our family came off of boondocking, dry camping without any hookups, most of the summer we were excited for all of the extra amenities that KOA had to offer us! 

Heated Swimming Pool & Hot Tub

It’s always nice to find a heated swimming pool and hot tub! Unfortunately, we visited after Labor Day so the pool was closed.

Firewood 

Wood was for sale at the office for $8 per bundle, which also included a fire starter. We enjoyed a nice fire one night just outside our RV and treated ourselves to the camping experience.

WiFi  

KOA provided all visitors access to free WiFi, which is always a nice perk, especially to a family of digital nomads like us.

Being located in Billings, MT, we had excellent cell signal so we used our hotspots to work even though we had a great connection with wifi.

Mini Golf   

The 18-hole mini golf course looked like so much fun! The kids were excited to try their hand at it and for only $5 per person, we thought it was a good value. 

Laundry Facilities    

The laundry facility was in a converted camping cabin with 6 washers and 6 dryers. During our stay in 2019, the fees were $2.50 per wash and $0.25 for 10 minutes of drying, which is really reasonable.

Convenience Store     

The convenience store at the office was well stocked with all the necessities for camping in case you forgot something. They also had ice for purchase, and a keurig machine with coffee ready for a small fee if you forgot your coffee maker!

Family Restrooms      

So many things impressed me about this campground, yet one stands out the most. The family restrooms!

Not only was the entrance to the luxurious restrooms paneled with wood and beautiful landscape photos, but the bathrooms themselves were some of the nicest bathrooms that we’ve ever been in at a campground! The water pressure was amazing and everything was so clean. 

Playground and Basketball Court       

There was a playground and basketball court that the kids appreciated. 

Other amenities you can enjoy include a fenced in dog walk, cable TV, a dump station, fishing at the pond, bike rentals, and activities during the summer months such as the ice cream social and Pistole Pete’s Pancake Breakfast.

Our Take On KOA Holiday 

We were impressed with the beautiful patio RV campsite we pulled into when we arrive at the KOA Holiday. Not only did we not need our large rug to keep the dirt out, thank you amazing cement patio, but we had our own picnic table with an umbrella and a bench swing! 

Oh, and to top it all off, we had a beautiful tree at our campsite along with a fire pit! The staff were very nice and we really felt pampered during our stay.
