“Not much room.”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

We stayed 5 nights in June. We got a deluxe site, but still very small. I asked for a site close to the bathroom, but it was still so far away that I had to drive the vehicle to it. There was no room to park at the bathroom most of the time. The bathroom was very clean! The sprinkler came on at night to water the very small patch of grass at the site. It got anything wet that was sitting out so you had to move everything before you went to bed. There is not much choice of campgrounds in the area so you're kinda stuck. We've been to every state, so we are experienced campers & know what is out there.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe site.

This is a well maintained RV park and I would stay here again. I would say the space between sites is more than most RV parks. Several reviews mention the quality of the restrooms. They are true, very nice and very clean!

Room Tip: It can be a walk to the restrooms and there is some grade to manage. If you have difficulty walking...

Well we don't get some of the previous reviews regarding rv park rules here....these are not different than any other RV park we have stayed at. The dog park is a very nice fenced area which was always green...unlike other places where you are given a walk or run down grass area.

But most important to us...the staff really knows the area and are helpful in planning your trip to Yellowstone, your days in Yellowstone and activities in the area. This is a busy park so book early. Because they don't allow late check-ins and because they aren't near highways, railroads, or other such nuisances, one can really get a good night's sleep.

While the restrooms certainly rate the great reviews already mentioned, the views are worth so much more mention!

Our family had 2 deluxe cabins (awesome views) and 2 RV sites. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Book early.. They were already full for July when we reserved online in February. Deluxe sites...

I don't know about rude reception / grounds keepers. We were treated professionally by the reception, and the guy with golf cart led us to our assigned spot courteously with a big smile.

Hookups are adequate and WiFi were good, even at the upper lot. One thing that strikes me positively is the public Washroom / Shower. They were like brand new, and very very clean, I have stayed in some motel/hotel with worse bathroom than this!

Everything about this RV park is good except for the fact that the pitches are close together and there are lots of flies in the evening (which of course they cannot do anything about). If you can get over these, then you will have a great time. We booked over the phone and were given a seniors discount, check-in was easy, we were guided into our pitch by someone who knew what he was doing, water pressure is ok, wifi is superb, the bathrooms are clean, washing machines are $3.25 for wash and dry, there is an evening story telling event around a camp fire and free crazy golf. The park is close to the northern entrance of Yellowstone and convenient for the town.

My family and I stayed here in Summer 2012, after we had stayed inside Yellowstone for 4 days. Usually I read reviews with a "grain of salt," as I believe that usually bad service is a result of rude customers...until now. Everything was fine (VERY nice amenities: bathrooms, wash sink, laundry, etc.), then we met the owner. He acted extremely childish towards myself and other customers. When I attempted to smooth out the situation with him in order to find out where we offended him, he threatened to kick us out of the park without me saying a word. After that the rest of the staff acted as if we were trouble makers, and I assure you that we are not. We felt like we were walking on pins and needles the rest of our stay.

In retrospect, we would have been fine staying in the park with out water/electric hookups. The weather does not require a/c and the staff at Yellowstone National Park is very cordial.

We were disappointed in this RV park (we stayed at 15 different ones in 4 states so we have things to compare it to). It was in a good location (just outside the north entrance of yellowstone) and was clean but the spot we had (#9 but 1-10 are all the same) was like being in a parking lot - no trees at all and crammed together. The store is worthless since it's just souvenirs and Christmas stuff - no groceries/camp supplies at all. I'm sure you could walk into town for supplies but it was raining so we didn't do that. The people were ok but it's not a kid friendly place - they were rude to our 10 yr old when she dared to try to get a putt putt ball without an adult w/her. Oh, and the putt putt was one of the reasons we chose this place but it's awful - it's 9 holes that mostly have nothing to them at all and are as close together as possible. It takes about 5 minutes to do the whole course and then you have to walk back to the office (w/an adult!) to beg for another ball if you want to play again. Overall, this rv park was a disappointment to us.

Room Tip: sites 20 to 91 are on the upper part of the campground and seemed to have a little more space and tr...
