Buffalo Bill State Park

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.

Pretty and Peaceful

Closed for the Season. No restrooms but still allowing campers to use Free. Well laid out parking. Picnic tables and fire pit.

Perfect spot on the water

Loved this campsite. Perfect weather and even better views. Great for traveling through Yellowstone. Good facilities too! Only thing that could be annoying is a bit of noise from the highway but it was quiet from 12-5am.

Gorgeous and quiet

Gorgeous, quiet and good 4G. 15 minutes to Cody for a great old west experience.

Best camp site I’ve ever had!

I would give this place 10 stars if i could! We had so much space, a beautiful Mountain View on both sides, and easy access to firewood for a small donation.

Buffalo Bill Northfork Campground - State Park

July 24 - Aug 7, 2019 Love coming to this park. Site 55 has electric and water. Park has dump station. Restrooms are very clean and they have a charge to shower ($1 for 3 minutes). There is a Visitor Center and Dam very close by.

Best Free Camping EVER!

I don’t know where to begin! We went all the way down this road, nearly to the end until we saw a national park camping sign, took this long dirt road all the way down to the river and found this hidden gem of a spot! Absolutely stunning, lots of privacy, great fishing spot and view of the Tetons! The dirt road you take to get down is a little sketchy so I sure wouldn’t take a trailer out there. But definitely the best free camping. A deer came right up to us at the site too!

Served its purpose...

We only stayed here for a night and it served its purpose. The sites were clean, bathrooms were really nice and the views of the bluffs were pretty rad… however, it was SUPER windy the night we stayed. Like, people digging their heels in holding their tents praying for them to not blow away kind of windy. I was also not super pumped that all the sites were right out into the open. I could see into everyone’s campground in the entire grounds.


What a gorgeous view! This state park has the best view and is a wonderful base camp for Yellowstone. Only 8 miles from Cody! Make sure and stake your tent down there is some wind. The tent sites do have a wind break wall.

Great State Park close to Yellowstone National Park

We stayed in Site # # 5 which had water & electric & a semi view of the lake. Best sites in our loop were #4 & #6 but all sites in this loop weren't bad. There is a boat ramp, several different loops for camping one primitive & one with water & electric hook up. spectacular view from the site. This was a quiet campground with a good sunset. 

Going towards Cody there is the Buffalo Bill Dam which is worth stopping at, It's free to get in and has a great story about them building it.  Cody is a cute town, have a drink at the Irma Hotel and the Proud Gut, Rodeos at the Stampede. 

The campground is on road that goes into Yellowstone National Park the East entrance it's about 50 miles. As soon as we got in the park we saw some Bighorn Sheep, Elk,, then a swan, Bison & more. I love Yellowstone. 

We went to a place towards Yellowstone to eat at a hidden gem called Cutthroat Steak house & Lodge. Great steak, good service and off a dirt road that you would think you were lost.
