Close to West Yellowstone

9/6/19 Conveniently located, 6 miles from west entrance of park. We had a pull thru site, 45,. Level gravel site. I didn't like that our electric and water are on site 44 grass area right next to their firepit. Our picnic area not level. Table very worn. They have a lot of different sites including ones with patio and porch swing, tent sites, cottage. Sites that back up to highway get a lot of road noise. Bathhouse attached to store was average quality, clean, good water pressure. The bathhouse attached to the indoor pool/spa smelled really moldy. Nice play area with mini golf. Small fenced dog area. Good size laundry facilities and store.

Close to Yellowstone

Yellowstone NP is just 6 miles from the campground, so it’s passable for a few nights. You don’t need to spend much time in the campground because there isn’t much shade. Sites are very tight. There is a tour bus that can pick you up at KOA's office for a ride to the park, if you don’t want to drive yourself. There is also horseback riding, fly-fishing, and whitewater rafting nearby. indoor pool, laundry/shower dump station. They have pancakes in the morning. West Yellowstone is close by for after visiting the park.

Crowded and overpriced

We booked a deluxe site here because that’s all they had left. You could easily have paid the same for a decent hotel room. The patio for the deluxe sites was tiny, basically the size of a small sidewalk. The sites were really close together and didn’t provide any privacy. Bathrooms were ok. If you get a tent site or cabin along the edges of the campground then this could be a great place to stay. The store was really nice as were the staff. If you are a KOA diehard or have a huge rig then this might be a good option. Otherwise try to get a site inside Yellowstone to be closer to nature.

Spendy but good

Spots are close together, like really close. Our fire pit was pretty close to our neighbors sewer hose. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are extras, but the come at an additional price. (Mini golf, bike rentals) This was a good place to reserve and stay a few nights so we could find a walk up campsite inside Yellowstone. It’s not close to town, but they did have a yummy bbq menu inside camp. ($$) and a coffee stand ($)


Reserved a cabin at KOA in West Yellowstone; it had been raining, the area in front of our cabin was a lake!!    Our fire pit and picnic table were completely underwater.   We went to office & they assured us they would send someone over to take a look.   They threw down some boards to walk on, but fire pit was still underwater & we would have to navigate those boards to go to the restroom in the middle of the night!    

We went to the office again & asked if there was another cabin for us to move to; the manager said there was but it would be $100 upgrade!!   We asked if he would be negotiable as our cabin wasn't safe.   The manager kicked our family of 5 out, with the words…..good luck finding another place to stay in West Yellowstone this time of year!!    Luckily, we found, Hibernation Station in town - lovely place, fully furnished cabins with bathrooms.   Why anyone would stay at the crappy KOA cabins 7 miles out of town when you can stay at nicely furnish Hibernation Station cabins with bedding, private bathroom, fully equiped ktichen, walking distance to restaurants & wonderful management.    Shame on KOA for not ensuring better management.


Staff is always friendly and helpful. Lots of activities for the kids. Lots of trees, clean, relaxing. We have been there 3 times twice as tent campers and once as RV camper. They have everything you need to enjoy camping. Kind of pricey.

Huge RV spots, large store, kept up nicely

Very close to Yellowstone park. The RV spot was huge (patio space, plus grassy area with trees which was great for the dogs!) although we paid for the premium spot. Dog park was nice for the pups. No complaints at all.


very nice campground.. Well kept and clean.. we enjoyed our stay.It was a bit pricey and if your not out by 11 am they charge a 25$ late check out fee..

Beautiful place , great amenities

A camping ground , pretty close to west entrance of Yellowstone Park, close to the town, great amenities, little playground for kids, full stocked KOA store, yummy pizza .. amazing friendly and knowledgeable staff , free coffee at the end of the day when they are closing .. I can’t say enough. They are very well fenced , it would be great if everyone who camps put the trash in trash cans and don’t leave anything outside for the wildlife. There have been grizzly sightings near the fence looking for food. It’s normal for a wild animal to be curious so it’s humans (campers) who have to keep themselves safe by following the rules of the campgrounds and keep it safe for others.

Great place to base out of for exploring Yellowston

We have stayed at this KOA for 2 different trips exploring Yellowstone. It is far enough outside of the town of West Yellowstone that you don't feel like you are that tourist trap, but close enough to get to Yellowstone easily. Always clean bathrooms and showers. Indoor pool and Spa to help relax after a day of exploring the Park. Mini-golf course and playground is for young kids to just play. They have food at the KOA it is a bit spendy but convenient to get going in the morning to get the most out of your days at Yellowstone.
