It looked like a great place to stay. We got in early, as it is advised in there description. Payed for our sites, just to return at the end of the night just to find others in our spots.
As it turned out the camp host REMOVED our PAID tickets from the post.
When discussed with the man, he was rude and unapologetic.
Not a pleasant way to end your vacation day!!!! This situation could have been handled in a more kind and respectful way. Publicly published words cannot explain how furious we were!
Will definitely stay again. Had a great time and close to both Yellowstone and Hebgen Lake.
Beautiful! On the Madison river! Great space, quiet & fantastic location! West Yellowstone is only 5 minutes away. We traveled into YNP a few days & also up to Big Sky MT! We stayed here an entire week. We moved to an electric site our last night to charge up. We are in a 28’ camper.
Well maintained well laid out campground in epic mountain, tree and bear country. Seriously, there's bears, so be careful
This campground is just minutes away from West Yellowstone and the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. the camp was clean and well maintained. A great recommendation if your visiting Yellowstone National Park.
There are so many trees! It is nice to have the main road in the campground paved. Not to mention, this is a fly fishers paradise!
Just outside the west entrance to Yellowstone (I think it's only 3-4 miles away from the entrance) is a good backup campground in case you can’t get a campsite in the park (a common problem in the summer season). This busy first come, first served campground is run by the Forest Service, so you are really relying on solid campground hosts if you need help (and they were great!). There are 70+ sites with use very mixed, meaning you could have a tent on one side and an RV on the other, however the electric sites are all grouped together along the road and the non-electric sites are along the river. Most of the sites had at least a few trees, some had many, so there will be likely be a spot to hang your hammock. The tent pads were gravel, so they drained well, but not the best for comfort or east of staking. Toilets were clean and there was a nice fishing dock on the river. If you need a shower there is a laundromat on the north edge of West Yellowstone as you come into town that has pay showers.
