The area on the top is no longer open and has signs that say no overnight parking. We went to the bottom of the hill and had to pay $18 for a place that only had a pit toilet. The park is really for local fishermen.

As described! Google Maps didn't take us to the exact turnoff, follow the directions below regarding the guard rail and stay up the top for free camping. There's no shade here during the day, but was nice and windy when we visited. There's even T-Mobile (Metro) 4G. No facilities at the upper (free) spot but there is a pit toilet in the campground below if required.

This place is perfect. You can pay to stay in the campground next to the river and shielded from the sounds of the road or boondock up at the top over looking the valley. Both are good options. River, mountains, fields, and parking. Easy access, big rig, tents, and chilling. Network access at 10mbps down and 2-4 mbps up. Quiet at night. Safe. Clean. Great views.

Nice view to the Yellowstone river. Close to the highway but quiete enough at night. The altitude is wrong. There is 4774 ft!

Report Check-In

Solid stay for an overnight. there is a big drop off so if you have dogs its not ideal for a long stay but the views are unbelievable!

Report Check-In

Great spot and good view of the valley with the river right below. If you’re coming from Livingston turn left before the guard rail, if you’re coming from the park turn right just after the guard rail. Continue on the flat part of the bluff and just pick any spot. Don’t turn down the hill, it’s a paid campground down there.

Overall awesome spot!

Amazing views - cliff camping at it’s finest! FREE camping is just past the dirt lot. Don’t go down to the established campground!

Report Check-In

Entrance is by the beginning/end of the rail guard -depends on which direction you are heading. took a few u-turns to figure it out. Original poster's coordinate entrance is gated.

Great Gem of a spot coming out of or going to Yellowstone.

You have 2 options here. Free, no utility camping at the top of the gravel hill, but there is a pay to enter campground at bottom of hill. Stayed at the free site for 3 nights and walked down hill to river to swim and get water.

World class views, not too much highway noise. About 10 minutes from the town of Livingston. One of my all time favorite spots.
