We are heading to Rushmore, Yellowstone, and Glacier this spring. Anyone have a favorite campground in each area. Just two of us and a 35' three slide fifth wheel.

If your interested in commercial parks outside Yellowstone, there are a couple of good ones.

At the west entrance is Grizzly RV park - one of the best in the US, A little pricey but its first class.

About 35 miles north of the North entrance is a special park called Yellowstone Edge. It literally sits on the edge of the Yellowstone River. One can fly fish from the banks in the park or go in either direction along the highway and fish from state sites. Or one can just sit and relax by river and look at the wonderful scenery including several 10-11,000 ft mountain peaks (Emigrant, etc). Also, one can go 20 miles north to Livingston where good restaurants, museums and other activites are usually going on. One of the best is Montana Rib and Chop House.

It's an easy drive into Yellowstone Park and all of the sites.

The RV park itself is not fancy but still very nice. Immaculate facilites for laundry or restrooms, etc. Great small store carrying some unique clothing items. Owners are both native Montanan's and will help you find whatever type of activity your interested in (horseback riding, airplane rides, etc). They have a community campfire every night where folks sit and talk and eat that great hand dipped Montana Wilcoxson's ice cream.

Last year we stayed ar Red Rock RV Park (http://www.8004redrock.com/) just west of Yellowstone on the shore of Henry's Lake. It was, by far, the friendliest park we have ever stayed in, with nice clean facilities, great fishing, and only 20 minutes from Yellowstone.

We've stayed at Grizzly and KOA West, both outside the western gate and found both to be great. The other place we stayed at is the Fishing Bridge RV Park inside the park. We did that when kids were little. Park is typical, crowded government park. Well kept with showers, laundry and all the amenities. What was nice about it was its proximity to things, making it easy to get the kids to and from the variety of programs offered by the Rangers, some at night.

In Yellowstone we stayed at Valley View in Island Pond it's about 14 miles from W.Yellowstone.. 320.00 per month full hookup nice place, private, no pool/rec room. full laundry facilities. It fit our needs because we spent most of our time in the PARK for 30 plus days.

correction - the town is Island Park not Pond

ALso, it has no reviews in RVParkreviews.com If you get a chance it would be helpful to have you do a review on there so we could get additional info on it.

When you visit Mt. Rushmore there are many RV parks to choose from, but if you only want a basic, cheap, FHU,place to park, Keystone, SD has two right in town. Arise in the morning, look out the window and see the monument. A trip to Hot Springs, SD and the mammoth site, by way of Custer SP, is well worth the time. Children have a great time on this side trip too. Avoid Rapid City during "bike week". We like the KOA at Saint Mary's, MT for staying at Glacier/Waterton NP. This avoids towing to the West side of the park, and allows easy senic driving to Canada's Waterton park and Prince of Wales hotel at the town Waterton. Highway to the Sun is about 1/2 mile from the KOA in the town of St. Mary's. I would strongly suggest not driving the Highway to the Sun, but instead take the small school bus shuttle operated by the Blackfeet tribe. The red buss' are quaint, neat looking, and appealing, but, un-heated; rain ia common, frequent, and cold, near the top. Plus, driving the narrow, always under repair road is nervewracking in it self. I choose to use all my time looking and taking pictures. OK, rambling done, have fun!

Apgar campground at Glacier is BEAUTIFUL. It is located just outside of the town of West Glacier at the foot of Lake McDonald. Nice treed area - stores within walking distance - beautiful setting.
