Escape on the Lake

I would love to give this campground 5 stars - the hosts were lovely. It's a beautiful, peaceful piece of property. Lots of trees, surrounded by mountains and a glass lake. If you are tent camping, there are gorgeous sites along the water and you get amazing sunset views each night. HOT showers, laundry facilities, and an outdoor kitchen for cleaning your catch if you head out on the lake. Ladies bathroom needs some better ventilation, but the showers were a nice size.

If you are RVing and staying here to spend your days touring Yellowstone… you just have to take note. It's a long, bumpy 5 mile drive into the camp (making it wonderfully quiet!). It was fine the first day, but it got old, especially after driving around Yellowstone all day. They also, if needed, pack the RVs in some weird spots. Where we thought it was a through road next to us, ended up being a RV spot later in the week…and we lost our pretty sunset views. It also was awkward for both of us as we were perpendicular to them.

If you plan on spending more than 4 nights there, you will love the serene getaway of it! If you are only there to sleep while visiting Yellowstone, you will find its location a bit of a hassle.

Accessible & friendly campground

This campground was easy to find and in the middle of all the action in Cody, WY. Right away at check-in, they were sure to let us know about all there was to do nearby for our family of 4 adults and 3 kiddos. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. They have a wonderful supply and gift shop and is nearby the rodeo, Wal-mart, museums, and downtown Cody shops. LOTS to do here!

We weren't impressed with the showers and bathrooms. Carpeted floors in the women's area made for very musty smell and not well ventilated. A nicer bathroom would have made it a 5 star for me. They did have a very nice laundry facility. They pack them in because this is a popular tourist stop, but our 27 foot 5th wheel fit just fine. My parents' large motorhome was tighter, but worked well for the 2 night stay.

As I mentioned, this is in town in the middle of the action, if you want a quiet, off the beaten bath campground, this is not it. This is also a GREAT place for cabin rentals and they have teepee rentals!

Family friendly, clean stay

We weren’t sure what to expect, but ended up being pleasantly surprised. We were glad we were just outside of the tight, hilly regions closer to Mt Rushmore… nearby to town on a main drag for supply replenishment. It was very clean and they helped us to our site. In the summer they offer a pancake breakfast! The kids loved the playground, putt putt golf and pool and it felt very safe to have them there. Bathrooms were clean. Nice pull through sites. There was SO much to do nearby! And the staff was super friendly and very helpful!
