Loved Tenting

Tenting inside Yellowstone was a real treat. Facilities all top notch. Wished our tent site had more tree coverage with the heat, hopefully the conservation efforts including keeping hammock ropes off direct contact help to keep the trees healthy. Hope to return again in the future!

  • firewood box for purchase
  • nice views in the tent section

Great location close to the river

Great place, we had a wonderfully quiet night here. Plots are spaced well apart so your neighbors don’t bother you. Friendly staff all around. $28 a night and $10 per firewood box. The proximity to the river was great and made for some nice river bathing. Recommended!
