“Cell phone reception (Verizon) was the only downside”

We staked out a bunch of different camping options in the Island Park area as a landing place to explore Yellowstone, and Bill Frome was the winner. Targhee Creek Trailhead was a very small space to camp, Red Rock Pass was crowded and right on a main road, and Henry's Lake BLM (not on campendium I don't think, only on freecampsites.net at current) was beautiful but there was a bad rut going down to the camp areas that our trailer wouldn't have been able to handle. So Bill Frome it was!

The area is neatly divided into back-in campsites with a picnic bench and fire pit, and there are pit toilets at the end down by the lake (no swimming, but nice to sit out on the docks and enjoy sunset). We chose a spot that had good tree dividers on both sides so it was very private. The area is surrounded by cow pastures. Easy in, easy out, no rough roads or awkward navigation to contend with. Nice and quiet.

Unboosted, AT&T was useable. Verizon signal was there but tower overload prevented it from being very useable, so our cell booster wasn't of help.

About a 20-30 minute drive to West Yellowstone, MT and the park entrance.

“A nice free park”

Donations requested. Very few people stay here. Picnic tables at most sites along with fire rings. About 30 miles from Yellowstone West entrance. Nice and quiet after a day in Yellowstone. No electricity or water. Generators have not been loud. Pit toilets very clean.
