Peace in the Mountains

Fees: $15.00 single $30.00 double 

Stay: 16 days 

Accessible: no 

Sites: 31 

Reservations: no 

Hard sided camping only, grizzly bear activity, no tents or pop up campers allowed. Might want to buy or rent some bear spray. You will have a fire ring, pit toilets, picnic table, bear box, water(hand pump) This is a beautiful campground that is situated along side the Shoshone River. Not only a feast for the eyes but for the ears. Beautiful sound. The backdrop of the rocky mountains and the Shoshone River and toss in a rail fence and you sitting in a whole bunch of peace in the mountains. It is very dusty so drive slow for the kids and to keep the dust down.

Awesome spot right outside Yellowstone

This was a great campsite on the banks of Newton creek. Very clean, host was super friendly as were camping neighbors. Stayed two nights and really loved it. Great vibe. Hardsides only because of bear activity

Quiet place between Cody and Yellowstone

This was one of our favorite spots around Yellowstone. The sites seemed pretty spread out and it is along the beautiful Shoshone River. There was a recent sighting of a grizzly bear and they had about 5 sites closed off due to that. The campground host is super friendly as well and loves his campground. Hard sided units only.

Beautiful campground between Cody, Wy and Yellowstone National Park

This is a fabulous, clean Forest service campground, with great hosts. It has 30 campsites that are large and feel quite private. It is hard-sided units only (no tents), due to grizzly bears that frequent the area. This is a bummer but a safety issue. The campground is right on the Shoshone river and wildlife sightings are common. It's about 20 miles from the east entrance to Yellowstone.
