We pulled in and paid our $5 senior rate before I realized we were in a reservable spot. I checked with the host who was awesome and said no worries, it hadn’t been reserved so we were fine. It was beautiful there but the weather was nasty. It snowed and we actually had frost on the windows the next morning so we didn’t get to explore since we were only there for the night. If you are headed to West Yellowstone there is an absolutely beautiful drive on a dirt road by taking the Fort Henry bypass. We had a lot of mud due to the weather but made it fine in our Mercedes Coachmen.
We stayed at this campground for one night on July 22, 2018.
There are two levels, the lower one is for non-reserved and sits along the sometimes dusty road, and the upper is reserved and very green. The upper is much nicer with some of the cleanest best smelling pit toilets we've ever seen. We considered additional nights as it was so nice. Our neighbors were planning on one night as well but had remained for 6 nights.
We had a very nice pull through site #6, with a level graveled area for the large picnic table and separate stove stand. The fire pit was also located in this area but safely away from the table. The green meadows, surrounding trees, and excellent maintenance made this a beautiful campground.
As a note both AAA and Google routed us to exit 180 and we drove for 4 miles on sometimes paved, sometimes gravel road to arrive. When we got within a quarter mile of the campground, we came to exit 184 which was right at the campground (no gravel travel required)
We arrived here kind of late at night. This campground is pay site but down the street a little further is free more primitive camping. We had a great time although the water as turned off because it was mid october and the water needs to be turned off before it freezes.
They had just cleaned a bunch of trees so we had plenty of wood to burn. The only problem which was more hilarious than anything were these 2 duches blasting country music all night. What ever, to each his or her own. Beautiful down on Stoddard creek.
