We found this by accident, we were headed to the state park but this place had full hookups, laundry, etc.
The ladies in the office were awesome…however the cranky old guy in the golf cart that parked us? Not so much. It was rather obvious he has a chip on his shoulder regarding women towing trailers. I was yelled at to “listen” or I wouldn’t be able to park LOL (it was a stinkin’ PULL THROUGH). I’ve navigated thousands of miles on my own and with the Sisters on the Fly and never had a camp host treat me like a total idiot. Oh and then a lecture on HOW to hook up my sewer…In his defense, it makes you wonder what kind of morons he’s run into??
If not for him, I’d give the place itself 5 stars…but he drags it down. I hope he was just having a bad day…my caravan sister that was with me in another rig got the same treatment…so..??
The campground itself is great! Beautiful views, easy in and out. Immaculate showers and laundry room. It’s quiet, so conveniently located just outside the West gate of Yellowstone right near Henry’s Lake.
There was WI-FI, but unless you were up front in the park it was weak. Back where we were put, it was unusable
In the end of July, over 200 of our group (Sisters on the Fly)…totally invaded this campground. Over 200 us occupied all of the 175 camp spots (plus a few doubled up in the pull throughs)
They were BEYOND accommodating!
The campground is extremely well set up. There is a wonderful little cafe (Sunflower), that bent over backwards cooking for us. There’s a little general store for all the little things you might need (including ice!)…a dump, dish washing station (so bears are less liking to check out YOUR camp).
WIFI is so so…but then again, I don’t camp to hang out on the internet.
The campground is steep as you walk the roads from the pavilion to your spot…you will leave in MUCH better shape than when you arrived.
Not all spots are as level as you would like them to be…they will work with you…just ask. Bring plenty of extra leveling blocks. Some of the spots require skill with backing to get in. They have group cabins and several shower houses.
All and all…I was EXTREMELY impressed! I would stay there every time I go. It’s located just outside West Glacier and the unassuming entrance totally belies the greatness that lies beyond!
You won’t regret your stay!
It lacks trees at most campsites, but that’s ok…it’s easy to get in and out of, the sites are level and every one has a view of the lake.
Its clean, sites are generous (i.e….not on top of each other)
The lake is easy to access by power boat or kayak. I would go back in a minute.
Cell phone service was lacking…it sits down in a valley but then again, I camp to get away from that.
the public toilets are clean and well stocked.
we took the back roads there…they were flat and so well groomed!
There were lots of families there…great place to turn your kids loose and not worry about them
I came to scout this campground for a potential sister on the fly event I want to hold. Arrived at appointed time. My spot was blocked by another vehicle. I waited (in the sweltering heat) for 45 min while the park host tried to chase down the owner.
i finally drove to another campground and just ate the $44 for 2 nights
Spaces are tight, and very misrepresented on the campground map on reserve.com
Although the host was apologetic and nice…it was totally unacceptable. Signs should be in place to indicate non parking area.
my suggestion would have been a tow truck…
We stayed in cabin #7. Very simple, one room, a single bed, AC, fridge, microwave, TV
Great shower house, laundry facilities, general store
A delightful oasis in the sand hills. Beautifully maintained campground right beside the river.
Spotless facilities, private camp spots, pristine park like setting
Nestled right beside the upper Mountain Fork river, this campground doesn’t disappoint. Roomy, with large shade trees, cement pads and all services. This is as near perfect as you can get!
When they advertise a stones throw from the Buffalo river, they mean it.
The campground is small and a bit sparse, but the location to the river is unbeatable. The camp owner and store manager “Jim” is a delight…as is “homer” the camp dog. The store contains everything you may need plus some!
This is a great little hideaway. Inexpensive, small and close to kayaking water…highly recommended
Not sure about campsites but the cabins are amazing. Lots of trails but the trail markers are hard to spot…they need remarked
robbers cave itself is a fun hike
Great small campground right on the lake. Great kayaking and camping
Great hiking trails and signage. All campgrounds are easy access to the lake. Beautiful scenery
close proximity to great hiking trails, AWESOME trout fishing. Campsites are VERY clean and tidy. The showers are hot and clean. It’s a great place
