Bear Tooth Pass was recommended to us by a local when Yellowstone NP was too packed to enjoy, campsites were full, and we wanted to social distance. I’m so glad we did this because it was my favorite thing we did! I can’t recommend it enough! Nice dispersed campsites with amazing views everywhere. I can’t wait to go back and stay longer! Never really got cell service (verizon) but who needs that when there’s so much wildlife and scenery around?
Typical State Park with wide open spots and no privacy. We got a pull through site with electricity but no water hookup. Potable water was available throughout the park, however. There are vault toilets scattered and near the entrance is a single person flush toilet stall with coin shower. The playground was fenced off due to Covid in August 2020. We enjoyed visiting the dam and the bike park in the town of Cody, WY. We were on the river portion of the campground, there is also a loop further east on the reservoir.
Lily Lake Campground is pretty sweet, in that it is very private and remote.
The cattle from nearby farms would come by and visit in the mornings and drink from the lake.
Our campsite was on the cliff overlooking the lake, just past the boat ramp.
Great place to stay that is close to Yellowstone, if you have a 4WD vehicle to get to the campsite. Follow signs to Lily Lake, b/c there are several lakes on the turnoff.
Crazy Creek Campground is a nice wooded campground near the North East entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Crazy Creek is also the last developed campground as you head to the park that allows for tent camping, from here to the entrance the campgrounds allow only hard sided camping units due to bear activity.
Crazy Creek campground is a 16 unit campground. Each site has plenty of trees which was great as it allowed my to use my hammock. Each site has a picnic table and metal fire ring and plenty of room for your tent. Campground has a vault toilet. No water is available. Campground is not ADA accessible. Bear storage lockers are available as food must be stored in your car or one of the lockers. Dumpster is available for your trash. Sites are just $10 a night, but they fill up fast. A great feature of this campground is the Crazy Creek trail. A trail from the campground takes you across the highway to the trail, a very short hike brings you to Crazy Creek falls.
We made the mistake of taking our TT down to the lake but missed the right turn going to the campground loop, wound up stuck at the boat launch area. DON'T make the same mistake we did. There should be a sign because if someone takes the first left, it is a dead end with no opportunity at all to turn around. We got lucky.
After we got turned around & went back up to the dispersed camping area, we found the ultimate spot & stayed 5 nights. There are several of these spots at the top of the hill. The last night dropped a little snow on the higher elevations so we headed down before it got any worse. We were able to get H2O from the visitors center in Cooke City, just a few miles away. We also did laundry in the Soda Butte Lodge. Kind folks in both places.
The stars were astounding at night. The view of the mountains was incredible. We had no wildlife come through during our stay but did make friends with the local chipmunks & gray jays.
This campground is perfect for exploring the beartooth pass or Yellowstone due to its location. The washboard, winding road to the top is one lane at times so use caution. We had cell signal on the top ridge so that was nice for phone calls if we needed.
We will go back again.
