“A good place for a night or two on the way in or out of Yellowstone.”

Overall Rating

We stayed here a week to re-stock supplies and catch up on chores after 2 weeks visiting Grand Teton and Yellowstone. There's quite a variety of sites, from gravel or concrete back-ins with trees, to parking-lot style sites (yellow lines painted on asphalt) for some smaller RVs, to long gravel pull-throughs in a different section with no trees. Our back-in site right along the highway was level, and while we had a small grassy lawn between us and our neighbor, the sites were pretty close together. The highway noise was worse than we expected. Lots of loud trucks, loud cars, and loud motorcycles going by all day long. The campground WiFi worked surprisingly well, which was good since even with our booster AT&T was unusably slow all day and Verizon had only two bars and was very slow in the evenings. There's a steep road down to the tent area near the river and we walked with our dog there a couple times, but otherwise didn't find anyplace good nearby for longer walks. We found the Cody dog park a couple miles away which had a large fenced park with lake access so we ended up going there on several evenings (local folks show up around 5:30pm). The Buffalo Bill museum was extremely impressive and not at all what we expected - well worth visiting! This is a good place for a night or two on the way in or out of Yellowstone and we'd certainly stay here again for that purpose, but probably wouldn't stay a full week next time. Be advised, making a left out of the parking lot (from any of the 3 entrances) in a big rig is very difficult due to the blind turn.

We probably had the worst site in the parkas it was next to the street, but would still give it 5 out of 5. Within walking distance to many attractions and a very friendly staff.
