HIGHLY RECOMMEND !Great host and beautiful campsite!

We booked a tent site online and pulled in around 8 pm on a Monday night shortly after the covid shutdown. It was raining and the temperature was 37 degrees and due to drop to 29 overnight. The incredibly kind host gave us a cabin for no extra charge since the campsite was almost empty. Character like that is hard to come by anymore! The campsites are beautiful, nestled right beside the creek. The scenery all around is beautiful rolling, green hills. Very quiet and clean. Clean restrooms and just 2 miles from town. The shop at the campsite has basic necessities, snacks, and drinks. There’s a playground for children and a fenced area for dogs. We are tremendously thankful for the host being so generous and will ABSOLUTELY be staying here again in the future! Highly highly highly recommend!

Our favorite campsite yet!

This campsite was by far the most beautiful we’ve ever stayed at. Our campsite was overlooking the lake and right beside a very clean bathroom. Luckily, the campsite next to us was empty or we wouldn’t have any privacy. The bugs were minimal in early June. There was a path down to the lake from our site or a path to a bench to overlook the lake. The firepits were hard to keep fires going in, due to being so deep without much airflow at the bottom. But we managed. There are no showers at this campsite but we had a water spout on our site. The toilets are vault toilets. We didn’t see any snakes or other wildlife. We would definitely recommend staying here and try to get a site overlooking the lake. Absolutely beautiful!

Conveniently located during covid campsite shutdowns

This campsite was our second KOA campsite we’ve stayed at. We only stayed here because all the campsites in Yellowstone are closed due to covid, but we are glad we did! It’s about an hour from Old Faithful. It was similar to the other KOA in that it has a small convenience store, nice bathrooms and showers, and friendly, helpful staff. It rained the entire time we were here so we didn’t get to explore much. We slept in the back of truck because we didn’t want to set up camp in the rain. The morning after our stay on June 6, it snowed! This campsite was the most conveniently located for us at the time to explore Yellowstone. We would stay here again!

A small community

This campsite is probably one of the most luxurious we’ve stayed at. It was our first KOA. It is conveniently located right off the scenic badlands loop. Restrooms and showers were very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our biggest complaint would be that the mosquitoes were TERRIBLE. But the campsite is located right next to water, so that was to be expected. What was unexpected was the host fogging the whole campsite (he warned us first so we could wait for a few minutes in our car) which helped tremendously! The site had wifi and a little convenience store which offered a few snacks and drinks. They have a pool (not yet open during our stay) and activities for children. When we left the campsite headed for the black hills, we saw lots of wildlife. Overall we would definitely stay again!

Beautiful campsite no

This campsite is very flat! There’s no shade, so be prepared to be hot. We stayed two nights. The first night got chilly at night but was perfect. The second night was incredibly windy so we couldn’t have a fire and had to park our truck in front of our tent to block the wind. But we still had a blast. The host was extremely nice and even offered us a place in her tent if the winds became too heavy. We heard coyotes our first night but did not see any wildlife. The campsite is conveniently located next to the horseshoe bend marina, where you can rent kayaks and canoes, and I think they rent boats as well. And a few miles down the road is Devil’s Canyon. Beautiful sunsets and night skies. Highly recommend!

Nice but not much privacy

This campsite was nice but there were lots of rocks and the sites are close together, not very secluded, and close to the main road. There are 2 bathrooms and showers. The bathrooms were decently clean. There was a ranger who drove by every hour or so and was kind and helpful! Would probably not stay here again if other campsites nearby were available.
