Campground Review: Bear Canyon RV Park, Bozeman, Montana
Why we chose here: We wanted to explore Bozeman and ran out of time on our previous stay at Livingston, so decided to spend a couple of nights near town.
Location: The park is a few miles east of Bozeman but it is a pretty short drive into the city. The park itself is in a rural setting and even though we had a simple back in spot it opened up to a beautiful view of rolling hills.
Sites: They have multiple sites types. We got the last available spot in the park so no real choice for us other than a simple back in with water and electric. Even though we had no sewer there is a dump at the park. The back in spots are close together and you have to park next to your rig but there is a grassy area at the back with terrific views, so it is actually pretty nice.
Facilities: They have a nice pool which we didn't try, but it seemed busy while we were there. Also a laundromat which again we didn't stay long enough to use.
Groceries: Bozeman has a good variety of stores, including Smith's which we have grown to like. They also have a natural food co-op near the downtown area.
Reservations: Yes, we called the day before and got the last spot on a busy summer weekend.
Cell Coverage / WiFi: As usual we found their WiFi unusable but we did have good Verizon and AT&T coverage here.
Price Paid: $30
Date of visit: July 2015
Would we come here again? Maybe. We don't normally like staying in RV parks, but the choices close to Bozeman were limited. The state parks are expensive and only have a few FCFS sites,
