I love spending my free time outside. I love nature.


Spacious sites. Stayed in off season so no services, but no cost either. Had a moose walk right through our camp and go down to the lake.

Wasn’t impressed...

Gets one star for being right at Badlands. Otherwise had a horrible experience which tends to happen at KOAs. People were rude when we got there early and tried to check in. Told us no spots were open yet and that we would just have to come back later. Went back an hour later and got put in a spot that was open when we drove by it earlier. They also charged an extra $16 for early check in?!?! That’s the second time we have stayed at a KOA and we have not been impressed with either.

Group Site

We reserve the group site every year. There are several camp sites in this one location. Great for family get together. Private pavilion. Vault toilets are being upgraded to flush. Electricity and water, but not at every site. Right by Norfork Dam and Norfork River.


The parking decks overlooking the water was really neat! Clean bathrooms/showers. Just spent one night there in our way somewhere else. Made a memory that is still talked about though!

Close to RMNP

Close to town and RMNP. Beautiful views. Elk in the area. Clean showers/bathrooms, though have to pay for showers. Propane fill on site. Small store. Have stayed there twice.

Bugs, bugs, and more bugs!!!

Beautiful views, if you can stand the bugs. We stayed one night in the RV campground. Dry camping. Tried to walk down the the water, when the bugs weren’t eating us alive, the smell of all the dead birds at the water was making us gag. Did drive over to the ranch area and walked around without any problems with bugs or smells. The wind was crazy that night and we could literally feel the camper rocking back and forth. Still a beautiful place to camp, and I would go back with netting to wear over my head.

Wildlife in campground!

Spent one night in this campground before we went to a full hookup spot. Spacious sites, didn’t look into someone else’s camper when looking out yours. No hookups. No showers. Clear bathrooms. Did notice some tents get flooded as it rained quite a bit while we were there. Had several buffalo wonder through camp. Fun to watch. Glad I wasn’t in a tent. Heard that a grizzly had wondered through the week before we were there.

Best campground in Yellowstone

My favorite campground in YNP. Close to my personal favorite places in the park. Full hookups. Clean bathrooms/showers. Need to have a hard sided camper since this campground is in grizzly territory (makes it more exciting).

Hot springs on site!

Small campground. Charged for showers. Good for one night stay on a long trip to soak in the hot springs.

One of the only places to stay late in the year that has full hookups.

Small place on a little lake. Couldn’t really walk around the lake because of all the goose poop. Did have full hookups still in late October. Clean showers and bathrooms. Urban feel.

Cute spot, close to Mt Rushmore!

Smaller campground. Clean showers and bathrooms. Close to town but feels like you are out in the mountains. A dinner train does go by and blows the horn, but not too disturbing.

Big Nope

Did have full hookups. Campers stacked on top of each other. No showers or bathrooms. Very urban feeling.

My favorite campground so far!

Small primitive campground! Beautiful scenery. Adorable little creek right there. Vault bathrooms were clean, but we were there early in the season. Big trees all around. Still some snow on the ground.

Great place to stay between YNP and GTNP!!!

Clean place to stay on the Snake River. Excellent location if planning to do both parks! We hiked down to the river in the evenings and watched the sunset. Gas was cheaper at the gas station there since it is technically not in the national parks. 🤫

Great place to stay!

Campsite are spread out enough that you aren’t in top of other campers. We ended up with a triple site by ourselves because friends had an emergency and couldn’t make it. You could see Bull Shoals Lake through the trees. Bathrooms clean. The water hookup was quite a distance from the site and had to use three hoses to make it reach.
