Wonderful stay

Just a quick night away from home Rough road getting there a little washboard so go slow Rates are good and very peaceful

DO NOT camp here! If you do - DO NOT DRINK THE WATER

***READ OTHER WATER ISSUE REPORTS ON GOOGLE!!!! *** DO NOT NOT NOT drink this water!!!! We are boondocking just outside Madison Arm, still in the National Forest, and we stopped in to see if we could fill our 60 gallon water bladder. And if so, how much would it cost. The owner said we could fill our 60 gallons for free, and ran out about 28 gallons into it and told us we'd have to pay $60. Because we only got 28 gallons she charged us $45. She specifically said we could fill it for free. When we got home, we noticed the water was bad, tea colored and dumped it on the ground. We will be filing a grievance with the National Forest, as this was a classic robbery. And we couldn't even use the water we paid $45 for. ABSOLUTE CROOKS!!!!!!!!! The state park down the road charges $10 for the whole year. We should have driven the extra couple miles and gone there, but we pulled in and asked, and she said it was free and to go ahead.

The ironic part is we worked for the National Forest up in Montana last year. We know that these fees are regulated for the concessionaires and this is not supposed to happen. You can NOT tell someone they can go ahead and fill their water bladder for free and then change your mind and demand money. $45 for 28 gallons that I had to dump on the ground is NOT ok!

Escape on the Lake

I would love to give this campground 5 stars - the hosts were lovely. It's a beautiful, peaceful piece of property. Lots of trees, surrounded by mountains and a glass lake. If you are tent camping, there are gorgeous sites along the water and you get amazing sunset views each night. HOT showers, laundry facilities, and an outdoor kitchen for cleaning your catch if you head out on the lake. Ladies bathroom needs some better ventilation, but the showers were a nice size.

If you are RVing and staying here to spend your days touring Yellowstone… you just have to take note. It's a long, bumpy 5 mile drive into the camp (making it wonderfully quiet!). It was fine the first day, but it got old, especially after driving around Yellowstone all day. They also, if needed, pack the RVs in some weird spots. Where we thought it was a through road next to us, ended up being a RV spot later in the week…and we lost our pretty sunset views. It also was awkward for both of us as we were perpendicular to them.

If you plan on spending more than 4 nights there, you will love the serene getaway of it! If you are only there to sleep while visiting Yellowstone, you will find its location a bit of a hassle.


We camped here during the July 4th holiday. There is a 5 mile long dirt road for the drive in. Be aware of changing road conditions due to the weather. All sites were packed full. Even though it was busy there was still friendly people.

Beautiful View

Stayed at a tent sight. Had no reservations and felt lucky to find a place to stay. We had just come down from back country camping and we glad to see showers and a store! The owners were wonderful people, the camp and bathrooms were clean, and most of the other folks camping were nice.

This place fits all needs. They have a small store, wood to purchase (for camp fires), a camp sink (to wash dishes), boats to rent, and, did I mention HOT SHOWERS? My husband and ourn2 nieces throughly enjoyed our trip and will be returning. (Lot’s of wildlife to see as well)


This campground has a boat dock, cabins, boats for rent, paddle boards for rent, kayaks for rent, water/power sites, full hook up sites, rv and tent sites, bathrooms, showers, store, firepits, firewood for sale, friendly people, boat trailer parking, sells fishing licenses, atv trails nearby.


This campground sits right on Hebgen Lake. It's near the town of West Yellowstone. You can drive to Yellowstone National Park from here. There are atv trails right next to the campground. Owned by very friendly and helpful local people. You can rent boats, paddle boards, and kayaks. There's a swimming area at the lake. There are on site showers and bathrooms. There's water/power RV sites and full hookup sites. Also tent sites. Our family camps here a lot and we are never disappointed with our stay. Love the views.

Beautiful setting

Madison Arm Resort is set in the most beautiful place on the edge of the lake. You have to drive down a desolate dirt road for a solid 5-7 minutes to get the campground, but it was fun going around the curves in our SUV. I haven't seen inside their cabins (so I can't say anything about those), but the campsite for our tent was a decent size. it could have been a little further away from the other sites, it was right next to other tent sites with no barrier or space at all. There were pretty bad mosquitos on the first and last night we were there, but I'm sure just time of year for that. The Resort offers showers and bathrooms, they are small and relatively clean. The women's bathroom has a bad smell to it, can't figure it out. The laundry facilities they said they had (one washer and dryer) were both down for the three nights we were there :( which was disappointing. Overall, it was a breathtaking location to camp while exploring Yellowstone and the Tetons. We would stay here again.
