Full Review

This campground ranks up there with one of the most expensive we’ve ever stayed at. But you know what they say about real estate – location, location, location! Located in the town of West Yellowstone, within blocks of the west entrance to Yellowstone Park, you can’t beat the convenience.

The campground is quite large, with over 300 sites. The check-in desk had three clerks to handle the traffic. Our gravel FHU pull-through site was level, easy to get into, and long enough for our toad and motorcycle. We lucked into an “end” site, so had a nice buffer space on our hookup side. The site also had a paved patio with picnic table.

Our site was satellite friendly, so we didn’t try the provided cable TV. We also pulled in several over the air TV channels.  Being in town, our ATT signal was adequate. A wifi code was provided, but we were too far away for their signal to be usable.

Campground amenities weren’t plushy, but they were modern and clean. They included six bath houses, four with coin laundry facilities. Each bath house only had two showers and toilets each (men/women), so peak times could mean a wait for the facilities at such a large and busy park. The campground also has a playground, pet walk areas, dump station, and small camp store. No pool or fancy amenities, just the basics done well.

The best part is the convenient location. We could walk into town and enjoy sightseeing, dining and shopping. Entry into Yellowstone was less than 5 minutes away.  But you certainly pay for convenience at nearly $80/night, WITH a Good Sam discount!

Bottom Line: Expensive campground, but I’ll pay for the convenience.
