Many deer and beautiful mountains!

We enjoyed two quiet nights and a relaxing day at River Rest. Our host was so kind and helpful. This is a great spot if you're heading in to Yellowstone! We would definitely stay here again!

gracious hosts, beautiful view

This is a beautiful area on the Yellowstone River and convenient to the North entrance to Yellowstone. Our hosts, who don't live on site, arrived a few minutes after we called and led us to our site. We dry camped, but FHU is available. We had a nice level place to park and enjoyed a peaceful nights sleep. We would be happy to stay here again in the future.

Beautiful Spot

The hosts were very nice and accommodating. They adjusted and extended the dates for our visit, which was a lifesaver. Very quiet and peaceful spot by the river and our boys loved fishing for trout there. Thank you so much for letting us stay!!!

Sweet Yellowstone Experience

We had a peaceful relaxing stay along the river! Our host’s communication was excellent and we were met at the property and shown where to park. Great wildlife viewing along the river and 30 min from Yellowstone National Park. GPS works for the location which was handy when we came back to camp from the park one night in the dark. Thanks for your hospitality and offering such a great setting for campers!

Wonderful hosts

These hosts were wonderful and bent over backwards to make sure there was someone to meet us and that we were taken care of. Their property is beautiful and my children were thrilled with all of the wildlife we were able to see! Thank you again!

Very accommodating host

Our host was awesome. At first our stay was declined because they were full, but when something opened up she kindly contacted me to let us know there was a sudden opening. They met us there to let us know where to park. Very friendly. Very beautiful spot right on the Yellowstone River and super convenient to Yellowstone Park. Would definitely stay again.

Thanks for allowing me to stay at your retreat.

Beautiful Yellowstone Gateway Location

Once again, we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay with this host. It’s a beautiful location along the Yellowsone River within easy driving distance to the park.

Quiet spot by Yellowstone

Great spot close to the national park and easy access. Our host met us when we arrived and helped us get oriented and parked. Our exchanges were cordial but limited due to our sightseeing in the area, which is truly remarkable. Thanks so much, MThappy!

Restful, beautiful and a classic river

Tucked beside a rental home, it yet feels very private. Spectacular views of Emigrant Peak and the Yellowstone River. Right on the highway and easy access. Although we did not meet the host in person the exchange was very pleasant.

Friendly and helpful

MThappy is a lovely place to stay. It is right on the river and we saw deer in the grass right outside our RV. They also helped us by being flexible with our arrival time and agreeing to host us on short notice.

Thank you for having us!!!

Excellent spot

Great location and the hosts were very generous. River was beautiful and I even took a quick dip. Would highly recommend staying.

Absolutly beauitiful location! 35 min from Yellowstone.

Lovely place. Host met us to show us in but they do not live on site so your alone with the dear and the water. Great place to camp if your visiting Yellowstone but want to avoid the crowded camping near the park.

Quiet Mountain & Riverside Oasis

We had a lovely two night stay here. We could have used their hookups, but decided to dry camp since the weather was so nice and we planned to be out of the RV most of the time (we did run our generator for a couple of hours each day with no issue). This was a perfect spot for traveling to Gardiner & Yellowstone. We didn’t get a chance to meet the hosts, but they provided us with a very nice spot, great directions onto their property, & lots of recommendations for our trip into Yellowstone (thank you, thank you!) Highly recommend!!

Beautiful spot! Great host!

I spent several days BOONDOCKING at this Hosts Location.
They met me when I arrived to make sure I got settled in ok.
Also, I very much enjoyed a lengthy conversation w both of them.
They gave me helpful information about the area.
And I drove the 2-1/2 hours to Helena & visited the Montana Capital Building.
I would definitely enjoy being invited back if I return to this beautiful area.
Thank you both!

Beautiful, serene riverfront property

We enjoyed our stay here so much that we extended it by one night, even though it lengthened our next days drive by several hours. The beauty of this location, with the river and the mountains as a backdrop is hard to capture in pictures. You just don't get the scope. We had a spectacular thunderstorm roll in on our last afternoon, warm air gave way to 1/2" hail and wonderful booms from the sky. It lasted just 10-15 minutes, then the black clouds dispersed and the brilliant blue skies returned. The entrance to Yellowstone is also nearby, but with the Montana side of the park still closed, that was not much of an option for our stay, otherwise it would be a serious bonus. The owners are super friendly, even checking on us after the thunderstorm had passed. They have great ideas for things to do in the area if you have time. We are so grateful that they open up their property to boondockers. It truly is a gem!
