Fantastic location for Yellowstone exploration

My wife and I stayed here for a week over Memorial Day weekend. It was in the mid 30’s at night but nice and sunny during the days. We tent camped, and there were first come first served sites available. We stayed in the last loop, loop D and had our pick of at least 15 sites. They’re large and separated decently enough from other sites. Vault toilets at either end of the loop and water sources available every third site. Camp hosts were incredibly kind and always available. The way also sell firewood to save you the trip into town.

We drove into Yellowstone every day, you’re only about 10-15 minutes from the west gate!

The lie is nearby and really pretty, morning or evening walks are nice! Plenty of wildlife around, we had some deer walking through camp just past us while eating. Very friendly. No bear sightings, but they are in the area. Utilize bear boxes! The RV areas were packed and were generally louder with a lot of children but the dry camping sites were far less crowded. Loved this clean, quiet, well located campground!

Small family oriented campground

My wife and our two dogs (small chi mixes) stayed at this campground over Veterans Day weekend. There are two halves, one for RV’s, horses, and a few tent sites and the other half is all tents. In the center are the restrooms/showers, a few parking spots, and camp host’s RV. The sites are pretty small and very close together but even on a busy holiday weekend where nearby Agua Caliente was full, here were plenty of sites available. Camp host was very active driving around welcoming everybody and was helpful with any questions you might have. Tons of coyotes! They’re tricky and smart, so stay sharp at night on walks with furry ones.

There are fire rings and tables at every site with water sources every few sites. The stage coach station is a historical landmark and sits in the center near the facilities. Pretty cool small cemetery and children’s playground available as well. It was definitely a safe, accessible, and incredibly clean campground. Lots of flies between late morning/afternoon but I’m sure citronella and a cooler period would have solved that problem. We would stay again!
