Second time we stayed here, first time was in the back by the road and yes there were a few rigs and atvs but was more quiet than most campgrounds with regular traffic. Second time we had a spot on the lake, great access to the beach and a couple trails for walking the dogs. The facilities were clean and the staff were very nice. West Yellowstone was a short drive, I enjoyed the solitude away from the highways. The boys enjoyed the kayak rentals, it would have been nice if someone helped launch them and putting them away.
This is a large Forest Service Campground on the banks of the Buffalo River. There are flush and pit toilets. One Loop offers electric hookups. Two of the loops are first come first served and all the remaining loops are by advance reservation. Located only 20 miles west of Yellowstone National Park it is amazing at this Campground rarely fils up. There are numerous restaurants and services located nearby. The Buffalo River features great fishing and canoeing.
Buffalo Campground is located close to the Henry Fork River, a world-renowned trout fishing River.
We were lucky enough to snag a spot at this campground a couple of weeks before our trip when one opened up! It was a great central location and relatively quiet. The lights from the bathrooms were on all night and made sleep a little difficult.
We only stayed one night because of our travel plans hopping from one place to the next. It was definitely nice having showers and an actual restroom though. Definitely not roughing it.
The next morning we heard a pack of wolves howling from across the valley. This was pretty incredible! We felt very safe though with so many people, light, and noise.
I didn't get any great pictures of the campground. But, we got tons of pictures surrounding it…here are just a few.
Amazing little campground with a great host. Hard sided campers only. Nestled in the woods with an amazing view. We had a moose walk through our camp. Did not see any bears but they have been known to frequent the campground. Bear boxes provided for keeping food and supplies safe at each site. We stayed in July and September.
Loved this campground and the beautiful trail to Pine Creek Falls. Stayed here in site 9 loop A for two nights in late August 2020. Lovely site, good shade and privacy. The hike is wonderful- beautiful scenery and shade, and the falls are spectacular. We hiked it twice with our puppy. We love this campground and will return someday.
This campground was very close to the West Yellowstone entrance and was very convenient. This campground is right in the small town of West Yellowstone. The park felt safe, clean, and well cared for. It was a large gravel pull-thru site with full hook-ups that was okay. It was a little difficult to level with our travel trailer with our Anderson levelers because they kept sliding in the gravel (frustrating). There was some grass and young trees that were well cared for.
We used our couple night stay to utilize the laundry facilities, which were clean and fully functional, and also visit some friends nearby.
We would stay here again, but it would not be a destination for us. We did visit several local stores in West Yellowstone during our stay and it felt very touristy, which I guess we shouldn't have been a surprised by. We needed to restock on some groceries during our stay and they were a bit pricey.
The campground is affiliated "Giant Screen Theatre" on the same grounds. As a guest of at the RV park you get a discounted rate to see a movie but our time there was limited and we didn't take the time to see a movie.
I would recommend this campground but the location leaves something to be desired. I feel like it was very utilitarian, well cared for, and was a good move by the owners to make this location into a RV park.
When staying at this campground you fell like you are in a big campground. Our stay was good but a little on the more expensive side of what we like to pay per night. The park was clean and well cared for and our hookup functioned as expected. Our check-in process was smooth but it we did have to wait in line for a while before being able to check-in. There was a small convenience store, gas station and gift shop that visited a couple times during our stay.
Our site was in the tress and considering the number of guests around us it was pretty quiet. We didn't spend too much in the time at the campground because we were in this area to visit the Grand Teton National Park. Finding full hookups in near Grand Tetons means you are going to have to drive a little ways, but we knew what we were getting into when we booked our stay.
We had RV and tent campers around us, which we enjoyed. Our evenings in the pines were great, and one night we were treated to live music from campers a couple sites down. There was what seemed to be impromptu gathering of musicians from various sites and an audience grew as well. We have fond and surreal memories of listening to "Roll Out the Barrels" which was a perfect end to a beautiful visit to the Tetons.
When leaving this campground we headed to Yellowstone and it was closer than we realized to the south side of the park entrance. We would stay here again but would also look at boon-docking sites closer to Jenny Lake.
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?
