“Great place to camp”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed 2 weeks in August. I found that other reviews were accurate, but if you take it slow getting in & out, you won't have any problems with the rocks. They are well rounded and no sharp edges. We met other Campendium members while there, and had a great time.

“Busy area but plenty of space for all”

Reviewed Aug 17, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed at Carbella in late July. We arrived on a Thursday and had no trouble finding a space. The sites run along Yellowstone River and most have a fire ring and picnic table. The spaces are very rocky but we just took it slow and had no problems. When we arrived, there were 4 other campers and still plenty of room for several m... more

“Quiet BLM area with awesome views”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Easy access by dirt road, sites are parallel to the river and some under trees, most of these spaces have picnic tables and a fire ring. The north side is accessed via a dirt track but the south side is across a rocky field though that didn't deter travel trailers and 5th wheels. AT&T 2 bars to non existent, the iPhone 6+ got enough... more

“Nice, relaxing spot on the Yellowstone River”

Reviewed Aug 27, 2016

Overall Rating

We found this area by using the GPS listed on Campendium. If you look on Google Maps, there is a "Carbella Campground" on the map, but this is not the right location. Follow the GPS on Campendium. First, you cross over a cattle guard and you'll see the Carbella sign. The road is fine but it does get BUMPY on the way in and there ar... more

“Lucky spot for last minute Yellowstone ”

Reviewed Aug 17, 2016

Overall Rating

We were leaving Yellowstone (north entrance) just before dark and all of the campgrounds were full (well, we didn't bother checking the $50/night sites...). This was a lucky find, and worked out just fine. The road in is awful and bumpy and graveling, but we made it pulling a 1959 camper. It was pretty full, but we still found a nice s... more

“Great spot for north Yellowstone”

Reviewed Jul 03, 2016

Overall Rating

LANDERWUST really gave great information on their review. I'm going to refer there and only talk about my experience otherwise. I didn't actually plan on staying here. It was a fallback to a fallback. But I ended up totally happy, and I would certainly plan on just staying here in the future, if looking for a free spot in this area.... more

“Great Proximity to Yellowstone”

Reviewed Sep 02, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a great location with river access and open sites of various sizes. The road in is a bit confusing - the first sign you see will point to a road on the left hand side that leads to a gravel area for the community dumpsters, the SECOND road on the left leads directly to Carbella. Tip: it doesn't matter where you turn, you can... more
