Great spot 35 miles from the entry to Yellowstone. Great owners and very helpful. No sewer, but a dump station. Owners make cinnamon rolls in the morning and the best pizza in the area. Great, laid back operation. Stayed for ten days and would definitely come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very helpful owner/operators gave directions to location and other info. Espresso and cinnamon rolls in the a.m. were great! Unlimited supply of hot water in showers. Internet connection was excellent. Could use a little more lighting for trips to bathroom in the night. Will definitely come here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is 32 miles from the East entrance to Yellowstone and is fine if you can not find reservations anywhere else. Only water and electric at sites but they do have a dump station. It was very woodsy behind the campground and grassy at the sites. The mosquitoes were horrible and we fought them for 2 nights in our motor home, which is why we left the campground. They make great pizza's, coffee, and espresso. The owners are wonderful and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had an electric-only site, and the bath-house is very disappointing. There is only very gritty Go-Jo soap to wash your hands, and push-button (1-minute) showers. There is construction going on adjacent to the park, and the heavy equipment there starts beeping about 7 a.m. to wake you. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park overlooks Henrys Lake, with tall snow covered peaks as a background. There are few trees in the park. It is clean, organized and maintained. The sites, on the outer loop, are reasonably large with gravel pads. DirecTV signal from any site is no problem. Our Verizon cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were maintained, heated and clean. The showers, in the men section, have no water temperature adjustment. The water was too hot for me to use. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice little state park on the side of a hill, surrounded by views of the mountains and right next to the lake. We made reservations but when we arrived we found the campground more than half empty, which surprised us. We did have very smokey air for one day due to the fires in the area so that may be why. Our site (#41) was very level, with a picnic table and a fire pit. The sites are small gravel and the "grass" area is mostly weeds and little piles of dirt. The only trees are new little 3ft. plantings they're trying to grow so no shade for a few years to come. The wind blows almost constantly, at times almost gale force due to the location between two valleys. We kayaked on the lake and enjoyed it although the water is very silty. This is a popular spot for fishermen! Two unique features here are #1: a firewood machine! Put your money in and get a box of firewood! #2: the trash dumpster is a compactor which runs on a generator. The hosts run it a couple of times a day. The dumpster is closed 8pm - 8am and locked to prevent animals from getting in it. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park has almost everything you need. The sites are big, easy to get in and out of. Not much shade, but trees have been planted. Staff was very good and friendly. Very clean showers and restrooms. Most sites have a great lake view and the park is only 15 miles from West Yellowstone. This year there seemed to be a lot of mosquitoes, otherwise this park is a 10. We will camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground is on the side of a hill overlooking the south end of Henry's Lake. The RV back-ins and pull-throughs are gravel with grass between and well spaced. A few spots close to the water have trees. The showers and bathrooms are centrally located with four shower stalls each. Henry's Lake is about 16 miles up river from Last Chance and the "holy water" fly fishing area. We were unfamiliar with the area and booked a site at the lake for four nights about a week in advance because almost all the sites were already reserved (4th of July). When we arrived in the area we found 15 different RV or campgrounds available in the 16 mile stretch, some more expensive, some less and most with vacancies. We had intended in fishing both the Henry's Fork River and the lake but the wind blew so hard, (35 MPH) on one of the days that we were stuck in camp. If we were to come back we'd look for a campground closer to Last Chance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We pulled into this beautiful park with a 40 ft. motorhome, four slides and left after struggling to navigate a "pull thru" site that was supposed to be big rig friendly. The site was CURVED and after 45 minutes of trying to get our rig in, we gave up. The park was beautiful, however, a wonderful destination for smaller rigs. You can't beat the rate! Rating is for difficulty getting into sites which are heavily treed. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a favorite campground for fishermen (though we are not). Henry's Lake is serene and beautiful. The small park is far enough from the highway that it is quiet. There are several lakeside sites, though all of the sites have a lake view of some kind. This is one of those "nothing fancy" campgrounds that's just nice to be in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Loved this place, despite 2 days of strong & gusty winds that really shook the camper. The view is unbeatable, and it's quiet - off the main road far enough that (even when the wind was calm) we couldn't hear it. Nice trail overseeing the lake, and for fishermen this is a prime camping spot. Friendly volunteer hosts on duty, who worked hard to keep the campground well-maintained. Bathrooms older, but very clean. Will definitely come again. Rate given includes tax. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a beautiful state park. The staff was very friendly; spots very easy to access. We stayed here a week and would come back again. Loved the views of the lake and the mountains in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We wanted to visit Yellowstone Park, but we were put off by the rates at the RV parks in West Yellowstone; anywhere from $35 to $65 per night. Then we found Henry's Lake State Park approx. 15 miles south of West Yellowstone. Great paved access road off of State 20. The park is located on the shores of Henrys Lake. It has large level sites with 30/50 amp and water at each site. The campground is well cared for and very clean. It is open with little shade which gives each site has a view of the lake. The dump station is conveniently located on the road into / out of the park. I would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Yellowstone Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice state park with large sites. We had a beautiful lake view. Staff were nice and warned us about coyotes in the park at night. We had 50 amp. Our site was not supposed to have water, but it was close enough that if we needed it we could have connected. No sewers though, which was why I gave it a 9. It is an easy 15 mile drive at 65-70 mph to West Yellowstone. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a great experience at this SP. Not only is it the most beautiful setting being on Henry's Lake with mountains surrounding, it is only 15 miles west of West Yellowstone and within reasonable driving distance to many other attractions like the Sawtelle Mtn drive, Mesa Falls, Quake Lake, Jackson Hole WY and the Great Tetons. It provides great hiking nearby and we enjoyed the Island Park area in general including many wildlife sightings. We were especially impressed with and enjoyed the staff and campground hosts who were so helpful and accommodating when our RV was broke down for a week waiting for a part to be shipped. We would give it a perfect 10 except we had issues with leveling on the site assigned to us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Quiet location on a pretty lake surrounded by mountains. Very clean overall, with many large sites with water and electric. Mosquitoes were the only problem, but supposedly it only lasts 2 weeks each year. But we could not spend any time outside because of them. Verizon cell worked great, no TV stations with antenna. We saw the most beautiful sunsets each of the 3 days we stayed. Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is just a really nice place. Price was fair, has great fishing and a view. No free Wi-Fi or cable TV or dump at sites. But there is a convenient dump site at the entrance. Wi-Fi is available at the laundromat a mile away, for a dollar a day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful location on the lake. Sites are spacious with clean restrooms and showers. Satellite TV, internet, and cell phones work great here. It is located about 20 miles from West Yellowstone, but it is a great place. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really liked this park. We used it as a base for Yellowstone. It was very reasonable, and the lake was very picturesque. The only drawback, was there was no sewer, but we see this more often than not, at all state parks. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites are fairly level, and the park is kept clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great view of lake and surrounding mountains. Just a short distance to West Yellowstone and about half the price of the KOA down the street. Park was nearly full every night so I would recommend early reservations. The mosquitoes are thick, but they cannot do much about that. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful setting, however, there don't forget the mosquito repellent and do not let your dogs or kids swim in the lake (leaches!) The best thing about this campground is the wonderful hiking trails. We saw a mother moose and two babies off of a trail. Lots of waterfowl. The prairie dogs own the campground as there are alot of holes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nicely spaced sites, friendly staff, very clean. Excellent wildlife viewing, nature trail. WiFi is only 20 minutes per day unless purchasing more, then we were shorted a day with no way to contact provider. Leash rules are not enforced. The boat ramp next to the campground was very noisy (motor powered boat wash), and started at 5-7am even though quiet hours supposed to go til 7am. No help from staff to stop the noise. The laundry and a great cafe are located 2 miles away: awesome, huge sourdough pancakes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice campground, with great views of mountains and lake. There are walking trails along lake and marsh area where we saw mama moose and baby resting in marsh. Roads are paved and sites gravel-no dust. Sites are large and we had 50 amp service. The main drawback is that we had were very high winds, making it difficult to sit outside, as it was also cool. If winds died down, we then had problems with mosquitoes. However, we would come here again. There is great fishing in the area and boating on the lake. There is a boat launch at the campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful location with spectacular views in every direction. Large sites, some with water and electric, some with just elec. Dump station is near the park entrance. Friendly helpful park staff, couldn't have been nicer. No problems with satellite reception since there are no really large trees. Cellphone and aircard reception good also. The entire parks road system is paved so there's no dust blowing around. The mosquitoes were a hassle but not as bad as they could have been. The park has a boat ramp and a very large parking lot for boat trailers. Our site was pretty level and we didn't have to mess with blocks. There are a number of day trips you can take, one being Mesa Falls to the southeast. Macks Inn to the south has a dinner theater with 2 different plays alternating every other night. Gas/mini markets are close by. This is a very peaceful park and we'll stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Only 20 miles from West Yellowstone, but one of the most inexpensive and best parks in the area. We liked the quiet and the great places to walk your dog (including a dog walk in the park, but the road to Henry's Lake is 1 mile and great for dogs). The forest across the street is a great place to view wildflowers in June/July. Dust was NOT bad here as stated by another reviewer in. We stay here every summer and love it. They have special monthly or seasonal rates that make this an inexpensive spot to stay in one of the most beautiful areas of our country. A few of the spots are cramped, but most are spacious. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Absolutely spectacular setting on Henry's Lake. Our campsite had a wonderful view of the lake and the marsh which was full of water fowl. The campground is very open with one loop having electricity and water and the other loop offering only electrical. There is a nice paved trail along the marsh which is dog friendly. Most of the folks staying here were serious fishermen and women. We only stayed here one night, but would come back and stay longer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If there is a prettier location for a campground anywhere we haven't found it yet! You are surrounded by mountains and look down on a beautiful lake. Plus, in 20 minutes you can be in Yellowstone National Park! The sites are large and there is plenty of space between sites. Our site, 17, is at the head of a loop and we have an unobstructed view to the lake and mountains. Henry's lake is renown for fishing, but no one I talked to here (last week of August 2007) has caught more than 1 or 2 fish all week. We would definitely come back here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful campground and the fishing was great. Son caught a 10+ lb trout and couldn't have wished for more! The campground was friendly yet quite. The lake was beautiful and the hiking trails were very nice. Lots of wildlife. Close to Yellowstone - was a great base camp for doing YS and still being able to come back and get alot of fishing in. Shouldn't even tell you about it - the secret might get out! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This CG provides a nice alternative to camping in Yellowstone. The West entrance is only 15 miles away. The sites are situated on an open hillside overlooking Henry's Lake. There is no shade to speak of and most sites require much leveling. The CG is quiet and is an excellent location for fisherman. Only 26 sites have W&E. The rest are small sites suited mostly for tents. Half of the sites are reservable during the summer season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located on Henry's lake. The park rents docks and there is a boat launch ramp. The pull through sites are dirt and are not level. I was able to level my motorhome ok with the levelers. The 50 amp power was ok at between 106 and 110 volts. Water pressure was a little low at about 40 lbs. I was able to get satellite tv with a remote dish. This park is a low cost alternative to the much higher priced West Yellowstone RV parks. This park is about 16 miles from West Yellowstone. The WIFI worked 5 out of the 7 days we stayed here. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Sites were spacious and large and that is about the best that can be said. Overgrown with weeds; our site had quite a bit of broken glass. Every thing is gravel, dirt, and weeds. This place could have potential if someone would do some work. Sites on each side of us had leaking water pipes, which were reported, but numerous people said no one seemed interested if fixing them. Bath house left a lot to be desired. Husband liked location for fly fishing, but I won't stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is well taken care of, clean, and located in a gorgeous area. The staff and owners are very friendly and nice. New and clean showers and laundry room. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We really enjoyed ourselves at this park and stayed in two different sites - sweeping views. The Wi-Fi was good although make sure you know which log in to connect to from your site. Great owners, very friendly and helpful. Movies are available. AT&T awful - needed to drive up hill to connect. Version works fine. Some sites not level but manageable. My dog loved the doggie field and other easy places to safely walk around park area. It is very quiet - a distance to a restaurant/small store/Yellowstone. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Heard about this park while in Arizona. Stayed June to September 1. Hosts are the best I've encountered anywhere. They even took us on an ATV ride around the numerous trails and roads near the park. Sites are gravel and level and can handle big rigs. Only complaint is that the roads are narrow, but I understand they are expanding the park with wider and longer sites and road. Very quiet and the large lake is good for fishing. Even had a grizzly bear on the access road near the park and understand a mountain lion has been seen. It is an easy drive to Yellowstone park about 20 miles. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground. Owners/managers are really nice people. They escort you to the site. The sites are plenty large enough. Layout is interesting, with campers back to back, but it really works well. Laundry is equipped with all new washers and driers. Only downside, it is a little far from West Yellowstone and Yellowstone park. On the positive, it is quiet. It appears the other parks on the main route could be pretty noisy. We camped here in a Motorhome.
To put this review in context, we travel for five months of the year in a 40' Phaeton motorcoach. This is the worst campground we have ever stayed in. The advertising is largely false. The staff is rude. It is located in a spectacular valley very near to a large lake, however, the campground is so tightly packed that few of the sites have any view at all. There are a few large sites if you are lucky enough to get one, however, there is no logical pattern to how the sites are assigned. The park is very small and since the sites are also small and tight, the driveways are clogged with trucks and cars parking perpendicular to the campers, and that makes it very difficult to enter or exit. No amenities at all. Not friendly to small dogs as the "dog walk" is actually a large, several acre field that is not mowed. There are several much better choices in the area for a motorcoach. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is okay--not great. I chose this park because of past reviews on this site--mainly for the dog walk and close proximity to the lake. The views from the RV park are outstanding. Mountains surround the valley, plus the lake is beautiful. We were escorted to our site by a very friendly camp host. Each site seems large because of the way they are set up with hookups in the middle of 2 sites. That gives you a huge front yard. However, since extra vehicles must park in front of your RV (not alongside), it makes the roadways very narrow. This makes it difficult, although not impossible, to get in and out of your site. The restrooms are clean, but there are only 2 toilets and 2 showers in the ladies room and only 1 toilet, 1 urinal and 2 showers in the men's room. This was not adequate for my husband. Also, the lights were on a timer and shut off while he was showering...not fun. If you like peace and quiet with a great view and you don't mind being pretty far from any restaurants or stores, then this place might be okay for you. I just like being closer to civilization. Island Park is not really a town. I would suggest you stay closer to West Yellowstone, MT, for day trips into Yellowstone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park near the South access to Henry's Lake. Most sites are back to back with your neighbor so that you have a larger front yard area that has trees and grass. Helpful staff leads you to your site and provides area information. Located in secluded area 5 miles from highway, surrounded by great views. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Hello everyone, We stayed at Red Rock RV Park and were very happy with the way we were treated, we felt like family. The owners went out of there way to make our stay great. The restroom and showers were always clean and well kept. The lots are gravel, but very easy to level your rig or trailer. All the sites have trees and fire rings, and picnic tables. The grass in will kept and green (not dead as in other parks). The dog run is awesome for your pet, and doggie bags are provided as well as a container to put them in. The park is very quiet and peaceful, and we will stay here again if we are in Idaho. All most forgot about the best trout lake in Idaho being right behind the park, Great fishing. By all means try this park out, you will not be sorry. Thanks for your time. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Quiet, quiet, quiet! No trains, no speeding cars - peaceful! Great views from most sites, surrounded by snow covered mountains this time of the year. Medium size trees for shade, but don't count on it. Expensive laundry room which contained four washers and four dryers next to the office - last load at 8PM according to the office. Clean restrooms. Friendly, helpful owners. My favorite complaint - Wi-Fi - they expanded on it, even had a great password system, too bad it only equaled one notch above dial-up. Wi-Fi was just OK after everyone went to bed! The very large Henry's Lake is a mile behind the RV park. The office had many pictures of large trout caught there. One of the nicer parks we have stayed at this trip, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owners and work campers were all very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable about the local attractions and activities. The park is situated in the valley with mountains all around. If you like quiet this is the place. The sites are large and grassy. Plenty of room for your dog to roam on the leash. West Yellowstone entrance is an easy 20 miles to the north. Be sure to take a drive to Big Springs and the Upper and Lower Mesa Falls. We definitely would return to this park if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here for 9 nights. What a great RV park! First, it is really really quiet--and we loved that. It is a little bit off the main road, so it stays quiet all the time. The scenery of the mountains is great (especially to us "flat landers") The way the sites are set up are excellent--when you are sitting in your campsite, you are not looking at your neighbor's sewer connection. It allows for large campsite areas. Extremely well maintained. The laundry room was spotless. The hosts provided great information when asked. We really wish we could have stayed longer! We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Helpful and friendly office staff. Clean grounds, pet waste bags with pet waste bins available. Solar lights along dog walk for night time exercise. Lots of grass between sites. Will stay here again if we find ourselves in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, off the beaten track campground relatively close to West Gate of Yellowstone N.P. (approx 20 miles). Extremely friendly and helpful staff - suggestions for day trips, dinner out, etc. We were guided to our site which was terraced and shared a utility pole with the next unit. Fortunately our windows are on door side because off door side would only allow us views of the rig next door (less than 6' between both of our slides). Nice "yard" out our door. Well groomed grass with trees, picnic tables and fire rings. On the minus side, no swimming pool and daytime business hours only access to the laundry (8am - 6pm). Because we left to do our sightseeing in the morning and didn't return until dinner time, we were unable to use the laundry room. In spite of this, would stay here again. Price reflects Good Sam Discount We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were disappointed with this place. it's 20 miles from West Yellowstone, but it took about 40 minutes to drive there. Any money you save staying here will be spent on the extra gas to drive there and back...if you have a gas hungry RV. It's out in the middle of nowhere, seriously, there is nothing out here. So be prepared. Not really convenient to visiting Yellowstone, we found it was better to pay more $ and stay at an RV park in West Yellowstone than at Red Rock RV park where the sites are crammed close together with no view. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Off the beaten path and very quiet! Roads and sites are gravel and roads have some slope within the park. Site was level and utilities shared between opposite facing coaches. Large front yard and plenty of room for our toad. Too tight to pull out form, but easily backed out of our "pull through". The owner went way beyond their duty in helping us plan our day trips to Yellowstone and the Tetons. Don't miss the rodeo at the end of the road. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time staying at Red Rock RV Park. We wanted to stay somewhere close to Yellowstone and some local fishing. The RV Park was pretty nice. We upgraded our site when we got here. I am glad that we did or the site that we originally had would have gotten a terrible review. The site we had was very big with plenty of grass. The other visitors where very friendly. Will bring our dog next time since it is a dog friendly park. Will definitely go again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you are in the area, you should check this campground out! Owners and their staff really exceed expectations in customer service for a campground. Owner remembered all six of us by name! South of West Yellowstone off Hwy 20, easy access. Paved road to campground, gravel interior roads. Each site has a fantastic view. Escort to site. Friendly, efficient, helpful staff regarding local things to see and do. Mostly pull through sites, good power service. Great dog walk if you have one. Close to outdoor activities; ATV trails, fishing, hiking, 20 miles to Yellowstone Park. Only downside is cell service is spotty, and weak Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wi-Fi has good signal strength but is slow, very slow. You are limited to 200 MB of data per day (with some latitude). The Wi-Fi requires a sign in. RV sites are wide on one side and very close to your neighbor on the other side where utilities are shared. Three sewer connections are shared between sites. Two connections are angled upward and are several inches higher than ground level. Close side by side sites are terraced and our lower site sewer connection has very little drop from our motorhome to the sewer. You can pull into some sites, but cannot pull out due to narrow interior roads The sites and interior roads are gravel and dirt and prone to creating mini dust storms when the wind gusts. The wind gusts a lot. They recycle aluminum cans and have a can crusher. But, most folks do not crush their cans. Noisy ATVs and barking dogs are plentiful. Several neighbors who stay the summer let their dog run free on their site. The nights are quiet as advertised without planes, trains, or road traffic . I was told that monthly sites were taken. We stayed a month at the daily rate. But were not taxed since we stayed a month. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park if you want to get away from the crowds. Nice place. Very quiet and green. Our yard was trimmed and clean and included a fire ring. Can't bring in wood from the forest, but they sell it at the store. Work kampers are very helpful in showing day trips to do. We got all the maps we needed and they even helped us reserve a float tube for fishing. Can get right to Henry's Lake from the park and the dirt boat ramp was suitable for our 14' boat. Wi-Fi was the best we've had all summer. Location was perfect for seeing Yellowstone with much more room to relax in than in any of the so called RV parks in West Yellowstone which are more like a gravel parking lots and more than twice the price We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
It is true that this park is isolated, and there is not a great deal to do in the area without driving quite a distance. However, the place is so nicely maintained, so friendly, and so peaceful, and perhaps that is just what you need when you leave Yellowstone. We were ready to just totally relax, not worry too much about sightseeing. We did go to Mesa Upper Falls and the Johnny Sacks cabin at Big Springs and both were very interesting, scenic, memorable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Isolated and very quiet - we could hear elk bugling in the forest next to the campground, and enjoyed an expansive view of mountains and rolling sagebrush, where horses and cattle grazed. This park seems popular with big rigs, though sites are tight, especially those with back-to-back hookups. However, the "front yards" of those campsites are spacious. Owners and hosts are friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are older, with concrete floors, etc., but are very clean. A small road runs right next to the campground that goes to Henry's Lake, but the road is fortunately paved, so no dust problem for sites along that edge. Loved the country atmosphere and the quiet. Except for other campers talking, the elk bugling and hawks & other birds calling, it would have been virtually soundless. Rate was for a full-hookup site; there are a few electric-water sites as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our all time favorite RV park! We use it as the standard for rating other parks. What we like is that it's miles off the main road, really out in the middle of nowhere, quiet and beautiful. One can walk to Henry's Lake, look at the mountains, enjoy the wildlife when they come by. It's just wonderful. We were on our way to Yellowstone and planned to stay one night. We were enjoying ourselves so much we stayed two more nights! Can't wait to return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 14-days. Campground is wonderful - close to many attractions, including Yellowstone National Park (West enterance). Water is from artesian wells and wonderful. Very quite since the location is 5 miles inland from US-20. Owners and staff very friendly and attentive. Campground is next to a large lake which is a destination for people who like to fish. Sites are spacious with a grassy area for each site and a lot of room between sites. All facilities worked well, including Wi-Fi. I would have liked to have cable TV available although satellite works well. This is definitely a travel destination rather than a one-night stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is very removed from all hustle and noise. About 5 miles to the main road and another 3-5 to any groceries. But, I would call it a "RV Oasis". Mountains and fields of yellow wild flowers on one side and Henry's Lake on the other. You can't see the lake, but there is a gravel 1/2 mile road to walk or ride bikes there. Trees and a wooden fence surround the entire park. Our only complaint was that across from our spot were tents with a family of 7 for the first 2 days we were there. No problems, just unsightly. Maybe they could accommodate tent campers along the fence beside the road. Laundry room clean. Bathrooms clean. Park was overall clean and did not seem "cluttered" even though there were some campers that were set up for the summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This would be a 10 but we requested to stay extra days and was put in site far too small for a motor home. Could not walk past slide on door side to get to car because of an evergreen. If you get the right sight, this is an amazing campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super staff and management. Off the highway, but all paved roads to the camp. Everything worked, and was super clean. We were here over the 4th of July, and there were parades and events that we totally loved. This was a great jumping off spot for Yellowstone, Mesa Falls, Henry's Lake, Henry's Pass, and so much more. And drive up to the FAA radar south of town! Breathtaking view you'll find nowhere else. And the wildflowers! Never have I seen so many wildflowers! There was an off-leash dog area across the road with flowers, aspen, and spruce forest: the dogs just went ape. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I want this place to remain a secret so I hesitate to offer too much praise; however, we absolutely loved this park! When we visited, it was rainy and cold. Not crowded so it was especially quiet (important to us). The location is drop-dead gorgeous. In a valley surrounded by snow covered mountains (in June). An easy 30 minute drive to West Yellowstone. There are tons of places to explore, in a Jeep anyway. We rode our bikes around the lake. Several hikes are within easy access. The Wi-Fi worked great. One small caveat: they asked that you disconnect when not using it. Our Verizon service was erratic but it was a good excuse not to use the phone. The sites are a bit close but we only had a neighbor for a couple of nights. Several reviewers commented on noise from ATV's. May be due to the time of year, but we didn't see/hear any. The staff was very friendly and even stepped out of the office to wave as we left the park. The price is a bit steep but well worth it if you value beautiful surroundings and the sound of silence (at least in June!) We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time to stay here and we will return. It is peaceful and quiet even though you are camped quite close to people. The scenery is amazing and the owners pointed us to local areas of interest we would not have seen. It is only 20 miles to West Yellowstone and you will see wildlife on the way. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The only two things we didn't like about our stay was the weather and the side by side hook-ups. This caused the driver's side to be pretty close to your neighbor. Parking to the far right can help. The owners and the host campers were very friendly and helpful. Our beautiful view was blocked by only clouds and rain. The restrooms were always neat and clean. Owners stated that the campers who were asked to leave because of flooded bathrooms were caused by their kids removing shower heads and having a water fight. No TV or phone, very quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Set in a beautiful caldera surrounded by mountain vistas, this is a serene RV park setting. The hosts provided detailed information on local attractions. It is the most pet friendly park we've visited with a 6 acre run. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground is owned by non campers and it shows. The spaces are large but residents show no respect and walk right through the spaces. Dog rules are ignored and noisy dogs and the smell of dog pee was annoying. The office kept no regular hours so checking for mail or packages was tedious. It is reasonably priced for parks in the Yellowstone area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We actually had made better time on our trip and called to see if we could get in two days early. We were told we could and ended up arriving after the office had closed. The camp hosts were there to greet us and helped get us on to a temporary spot until our reserved spot came available. We were thrilled. We were near the dog walk for our dog and had the most wonderful new neighbors. The camp hosts were always available to answer any of our questions. We were provided with maps to all the local attractions and given the best advice for Yellowstone Park, Grand Teton Park and Jackson Hole. When our reserved space was available, the camp hosts made sure we were moved and settled. I haven't seen cleaner facilities anywhere. We have been very pleased and will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First off we choose this campground due to its quiet and beautiful western views. We were told this campground was family and kid friendly and on such short notice of booking we were very excited to find what seemed to be perfect. Our site was exactly as promised! The view was BEAUTIFUL. Mountains and valleys as far as the eye could see. We were surprise to find out the campground itself was NOT kid friendly: yes, they accept kids, but there were a ton of rules. Playground was very very small. Not the amenities we were told about by the owner on the phone. Golf carts and 4 wheelers were allowed which is fine, however seemed constant and did get a bit annoying. One night as we approached the campground we noticed a HUGE enclosed storage trailer RIGHT in front of our camper, totally blocking our beautiful view and taking up a large portion of our site. We asked why this was and were told they sometimes use extra space as overflow parking. We explained that it was obstructing the view we paid for and the trailer was on our site. They said "they would see what they could do." Again we were not told this and would not have choose that more expensive "premium" site had we known it may have been used for that purpose. Also the men's showers have a drain issue, if you take longer then a 5 minute shower chances are it will start to flood the restroom. We were blamed for the restroom flooding one evening and told if we did not clean the restroom ourselves we would have to leave. Needless to say, we cleaned the restroom and left, 4 days early. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground, with its beautiful sites and view, was VERY unfriendly and generally seemed to be a retirement type atmosphere more than any other during our vacation in Yellowstone area. They have minimal area for the children to play. There was more for pets than kids. The area was clean, but the people staying there were intolerant of any 'shenanigans'.(especially by children) They promised a full hook up, which they did not have available. Then parked another campers equipment on our site, blocking our view of the mountains. Unfortunate, but probably the worst of our stays was here, and we promptly left and went to the KOA where the price was higher, but worth it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very quiet park with very pretty views. Friendly staff. Limited office hours. 4-Wheel escort to site was very helpful. Laundry room was very clean. Dryers take about three cycles to dry one load of laundry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed our stay at this campground. Loved that it was off the main road and away from the crowds of Island Park. It was only 10 minutes from W.Yellowstone (w/no construction), which made it a great base camp. There was a nice walking path around the campground for pets and just a short hike over the hill to Henry's Lake. The ONLY bad thing we experienced was the gigantic mosquitoes! Take your bug spray! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The big thing this park has going for it is the setting. It sits in a sage meadow surrounded by beautiful mountains. So, that’s hard to beat. We were welcomed at check in and told repeatedly “Anything you need, just ask!” Later, when we asked at the office for the one thing we needed and their website offered, the response at the office was “NO!” The situation was remedied, but there’s definitely a disconnect. The setting is usually quiet, but many guests bring their ATVs along, so that can be a bit annoying. We paid for a premium spot with a gorgeous view, only to have overflow rigs and vehicles park and be stored in the way, making our high-dollar spot less than premium. As others have mentioned, sites are tight on one side. Ours was so tight we heard the sound effects while our neighbors watched movies. We came here knowing there is no cable or AT&T reception. Satellite worked fine and we could get AT&T 3G a half-mile or so away. The owners have made an honorable effort to provide Wi-Fi, but it was slow and out of service for awhile during our stay. With many seasonal and long-term residents, the laundry room is always busy and obviously too small. It would help to have it open in the evening. Price reflects a monthly rate, which at $700/mo is a bit steep. But, apparently, that’s the price you pay for being 20 miles outside West Yellowstone in the Summer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at Red Rock for a week and did not find any of the problems the previous reviewer mentioned. We found the staff to be very welcoming and helpful. We had friends joining us who were late due to rig problems and the staff worked diligently to accommodate them. We had no noise, campfire or dog problems. We will recommend this park to all our full-time RVing friends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Red Rock RV advertises itself as peaceful and quiet with big signs as you drive in advertising just that, which is why we picked this spot in the first place. The park has a lot of ATV’s and motorcycles so quiet does not happen all the time! There are fire rings here which are not a welcomed site at any RV park as the smoke always finds its way into your RV! I was told they allow any type of dog in this park as long as it is controlled. Park has too many dogs! This was the first RV park since we have been full timing for over a year now that seemed a little unfriendly to both my wife and me. That doesn’t really bother us but it is the first time in an RV park where no one seemed very friendly. We were kept up until 3am in the morning one night by our neighbors drinking and partying all night! I was charged $34 a day or about $900 a month, which seems very high compared to other parks about 10 miles away that charges half that rate for the same hook-ups for a month. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
You won't find a prettier location for an RV park, or nicer people running a park than this one. It is located five miles off the highway in a green valley surrounded by mountains so it is peaceful and beautiful. The sites in the center are tight with not much view and all roads are dirt which means lots of dust. Because the park is only open for six months during the summer, reservations are definitely recommended; the sooner the better. The rates are the best in the area. The laundry dryers were inefficient and caused us to use a nearby laundromat. We were disappointed with the Internet which was fair, but considering the location, you are lucky to get any at all. Cell phone service is also limited. There is lots to do here besides going into West Yellowstone, about 20 miles away. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's an older park, not all sites are for big rigs. Many sites are very close together. The employees of the park are very friendly, not so much with the owners. They do fill up during the summer, so if you want a specific site you need to make your reservations early. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for the summer of 2010. We had an absolute great time and will do it again sometime. The owners and the hosts went out of their way to provide everything you may need for your site and or the facilities. They provided you with maps or suggestions on self tours of the area. The WiFi was free and it did reach our site with no problems. It was limited to so many megabits per day until 11pm. If you want to relax and have a quiet nights sleep, this is the place to do it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed two weeks and used it as a base to explore Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. It is located 22 miles west of West Yellowstone and is perhaps not the most convenient location to town-side amenities, but the trade off is worth it: We really appreciated the relative solitude here, as well as the very clear nights. We heard that an amateur astronomy comes stays at Red Rock for this reason. Elevation is somewhere near 8,000 feet. The fellow who owns it cares about the peace and quiet, and he asks people not to show up after dark. We liked his attitude and obvious attention to maintenance. The price was good too, and we will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Multiple Wi-Fi access points with fast DSL providing the access. Very personable and helpful front desk staff. Side by side hookups through out the park for us are not ideal. I would definitely recommend this park over any of those in West Yellowstone. We found the drive to the west entrance easy. I'll definitely stay here again if I return to visit Yellowstone and will avoid the West Yellowstone RV parks completely. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to stay away from the crowds yet close to everything, staff was friendly and courteous. Beautiful surroundings. Stayed here in August 2008. Atv trails and fishing are very good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We called ahead to stay here. When we arrived it was way off the beaten path and not close to anything: nothing what we wanted. When we told them we did not want to stay they proceeded to charge us for 2 nights for both spaces. At no time did they indicate you must pay for your entire stay if you change your mind! One night is typical everywhere else. Camper beware of this! We are not happy at all! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our third visit to this pretty park. The people are very friendly; the views are magnificent; the whole place is spotless. What else could you ask for? It's five miles off Hwy 20 on a good paved road and it's so so quiet and peaceful. The laundry is well equipped and very clean as are all the facilities. There is lots of nice grass which is a nice bonus. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A little off the beaten path with no road noise, just beautiful scenery and quiet. Planned to stay 2 nights but stayed 5 instead. Easy access to West Yellowstone entrance and horseback riding is nearby. Also, near ATV trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is in the great outdoors. It is well off the beaten path. The interior roads are basically dirt, with very little gravel. The sites are somewhat difficult to maneuver into and the roads are narrow, necessitating people to move their trucks and cars to allow big rigs to depart. It was dry and very dusty during my stay. If you have problems with breathing or sensitive eyes (like me), you WILL NOT have a good camping experience. AT&T wireless is useless in the campground, no signal strength. It is quiet at night. I would not have stayed if the dust problem had been known. I will NOT stay here again. The work campers and staff are wonderful and helpful. But the owner is somewhat pompous and opinionated. He talks "down" to people. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you are looking to visit the beauty of the eastern Idaho and West Yellowstone area along with Yellowstone NP in peace and quite then you have found your destination. This RV park is a little off the beaten path (by only 5 miles but easy to get to) and that is why this place is a gem. Forests, mountains, grassy plains, wild flowers, lake access and wildlife in every direction! If you enjoy the great outdoors then this place is for you - if you are a city tender foot - remember, this is the "outdoors" (and I don't mean a campground off the interstate) and not an environmentally controlled, allergen free biosphere. Campfires here are fantastic - crystal clear nights, very bright stars, and comfortably cool/cold temps. Sites are level and easy to navigate (for competent drivers) and the exceptional staff escorts everyone to their sites and assists them per locations of hookups. Go for a super site and you get a LARGE lawn area, plenty of car/truck parking room, "level" picnic table, and your own fire pit! Owner and staff are as knowledgeable about the surrounding wilderness areas and sites to see as they are about the campground itself. Wi-Fi is reliable and Verizon works just fine, but then again, come here for the scenery, tranquility, and friendly campers. I have been here three weeks in a 39-foot fifth-wheel and will be here until they close for the winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park friendly and helpful staff, the sites were level, however there was no shade trees, this park is off the beaten path but well worth it. Its about 40 miles from west Yellowstone. There is great fishing within 1/2 mile of the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spectacular setting. Park is 5 miles off the Hwy. Well worth it. Good power, some of the best water anywhere. Quiet. Very friendly staff. 1 mile from Henry's Lake. Small store with very basic camping and fishing supplies. Come here with all the stuff you need. We were transiting thru and could only stay one night, but we WILL stay here again, and longer. Very close West Yellowstone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our trip lasted two weeks and this was the best park we encountered. The staff was most helpful and friendly. They escorted us to the site and helped get us parked and situated. They pointed out the local sites and vouched for some of them. It is about 30 minutes to West Yellowstone and the park. There are many fun things to do in Idaho that are close to the campground. The campground is about four or five miles off of the main road, it was quiet; the other campers were well behaved. They have a nice dog walk, and they are near a large reservoir. Near dusk each night out near the main road, the moose come by to graze. They aren’t the least bit afraid of the visitors as long as you stay on your side of the fence. What a wonderful site. You bet we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
They do have WiFi available, but do not want you to utilize it. I believe they should have mentioned that they would not allow "internet phones" to be used and that you had to limit your computer time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent park. A lot of the sites have beautiful lawns alongside, with picnic tables and firepits. Very friendly workcampers run the park in the summer months. This park is 5 miles off the Interstate, so it's wonderfully quiet. I would have given it a 10 except that they do not have cable TV. If you have a site close to the office like we did, the signal is very strong. Many people spend the entire summer here, as it's only 15 miles from Yellowstone National Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place was the perfect place for us. If you want to camp off the beaten path, under the stars, with a campfire, have plenty of room for spreading out, with sweeping views of mountains and Henry's lake; This is the place. The hosts and workers went out of their way to help in every aspect of our stay including parking our large rig. They made sure we had a map with things to do, places to see, and not to be missed places to eat. It is only a short 20 minute drive from West Yellowstone entrance. We saw moose nearly every night grazing on fireweed a short 2 mile drive from the campground. This is the perfect place for big riggers that need the hook-ups, but still want to feel like camping and want a view. You do share a power pole and water spigot with a neighbor but each site had a large grass front yard. We drove the entire Yellowstone area, and we thought this was the best bet for a good camping experience at Yellowstone. Shhhh it's quiet here! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really nice park in a quiet, isolated area (see previous comments). Be sure to have a reservation going in -or you're wasting 10 miles RT- since many sites are taken by long-termers. People here seemed very cheerful and friendly, from the hosts to the campers. Workcamper does a great job of guiding you into your site, which will be very close to the neighbor sharing the hookups. But the other side may have 20 yards of grassy space. Water quality is excellent. Laundry and bathrooms small but clean. Wifi was inconsistent; they are at end of local DSL line, so be glad it's "free". NO cable or antenna tv reception, and cell phone reception was tricky. But if you want a beautiful, quiet backwoods place, this is it. Check park website for lower off-season rates. Your dog will want to stay forever- you'll never find another park with more room for them to roam. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We noticed that previous reviews were up in the 8s,9s, and 10s. We felt as the last reviewer said that it was too tight and not a very comfortable park. Maybe it was the site we were in; at the far reaches of the park and small. Shared hookups put the next door neighbor very close. The car parking was marginal. We would probably find another park next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The only problem with this park is it is tight. The spaces are close and the turns are tight. It is secluded, quiet and has friendly staff. WIFI is marginal. Buy your groceries, etc. before you go, the nearest grocery is several miles away and it is very small. We camped here in a Motorhome.
What a good experience! This park is located about 5 miles off of Highway 20 near Henry's Lake. For this trip it served as our base for exploring Yellowstone (less than thirty minutes away from the West entrance of Yellowstone). We love the peace and quiet. We reserved two nights and extended our stay for three additional nights. This park is well staffed with amazing helpful and friendly hosts. I have never been to a park where the staff guides every single rig onto their pad and assists with the hookups (they also guide you off of your pad when leaving). The host that helped us park loaned us a step that is his own personal property because our bottom step was a little high for our older dog. This is a very popular park - we have talked to several repeat campers. Because we extended our stay we were relocated to a site closer to the office and discovered that the WiFi really does work - don't count on it if you are not located in the immediate vicinity of the office. We look forward to coming back in about ten years when the trees will offer some shade - but we will certainly be back before then. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our third visit to this park in two summers, and we find this "off the beaten path" location very much to our liking. Located just 22 miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park, many of the guests use the park as a staging area for that and other nearby sights. Although used by some who enjoy ATV's, the majority of the visitors here seem to be area tourists, fishermen, and those who enjoy a little solitude. It should be noted that this has been a very dry summer, so some dust can be expected on the interior and surrounding roads. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, using their ATV's to guide every guest to specific spaces and to keep the park maintained. There is no cable TV, but a good south view is available to those with satellite dishes. The free WiFi is quite good for a remote location. We would return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were unhappy here and left a day early (no refund available). No TV. No cell phone access. Felt rather crowded in our campsite. Because we don't fish, we had little to do in the immediate area. If you fish and/or ride ATVs, you might like this campground location. The Wifi worked well but were warned by the management against using it much due to limited bandwidth. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
It was an OK park, nothing special. Isolated and quiet at night. It is in the middle of cow pastures with mountains in the distance. A bit off the main roads and a good distance from Yellowstone. Henry's Lake is a mile down a road with put in facilities for small boats. My complaint is the fact that the park is a mecca for ATV's. The rules keep the speeds down but the roads are dirt and dusty and all the ATV's, including the staff, going back and forth all day long makes it difficult to sit outside. The wind is usually strong so you are frequently breathing dust. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's a really nice park - strong and fast wifi, helpful and friendly hosts, quiet and scenic. Most of the park is gravel/dirt so it can be dusty. The park rules say you will be blocked from wifi if you hog the bandwidth and they forbid voip. The way the sites are laid out may not please everyone, although you have a large open space on your curb side. The utilities are fine, 50 amp available. They require a sealed sewer connection. Some sites around the perimeter have great views. There are a lot of sites occupied by campers who stay for the whole season. The park is popular and busy, nearly full every night. Make a reservation. If you cant get in there are plenty of other parks along Highway 20. Be sure to visit the Mesa Falls near Ashton, along with Yellowstone and the Tetons. Also the drive up Highway 191 along the Galatin River is really spectacular and the turns are gentle so you can drive a big rig on that route. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Delightful experience, especially if you have dogs...best dog run we've experienced plus acres of running ground all around. Great base camp for exploring in all four directions including Yellowstone. WiFi worked instantly and clear. Operators are great...guide you in your spot and are very helpful in all ways, including hooking you up. It's a wee bit cramped...much of it laid out as "buddy" spots, side by side with 40-50 feet of grass in between. No television (unless you have your own dish, of course). About 3/4 mile to Henry's Lake, but that's only meaningful if you fish. Lots of rivers and streams in the area. It is a 30 minute ride to the nearest store though a few items on site. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park advertised that it is 15 min. from Yellowstone, and it's more like 30. Sites are gravel and ours was full of lumps and potholes. In addition sites are very small, and you will have to have people move their vehicles when you exit. A lot of seasonal residents that did not like the vacationer, and let you know about it. Weeds were growing 3 ft. high out of the fire pit and the code on the mens restroom never worked at night. Our week long stay was very unpleasant and we would never stay there again. There are many more parks closer to Yellowstone that had many more amenities and much nicer grounds. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful location! A little too far out for some people, but well worth it. Very clean park and large grassy area with picnic table and grill next to each site. Friendly host. WiFi very strong. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park, close to great fishing. It's a little off the beaten path, but extremely well cared for. They have a number of folks that stay the season, year after year. The sites are easy to get in and out of, and most are level. They have some trees, but the location at our site made for a little back and forth to get the slides free from limbs. I'd definitely recommend the place, but be prepared to drive to find just about anything. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great campground. They guide everyone into their site. Everyone is very friendly. The sites are large and grassy. The Wi-Fi worked great for me all but the last night. Maybe too many users. The main problem for me was no Cingular service. Verizon did come in. You could drive a short distance and get Cingular. The laundry seemed a bit under capacity for the demands. But was very clean. I would stay there again, but for the cell phone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park in a beautiful setting. You cannot beat the views. The sites are side-by-side hooks but there are large yards on the passenger side. Quite inexpensive for this area and Yellowstone is easily accessed. WIFI signal was weak and connectivity was spotty at times. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They will even walk your dog during the day if you are out. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Redrock is a fantastic campground in the heart of Yellowstone country. I'm an avid fly fisherman and found it difficult where to go each day. Great water in every direction, including 1 mile to Henrys Lake. The campground was very clean, with new gravel pads at each site. The grass area was in great shape and perfect for our dog. While we didn't talk with the staff much, I did find they were very friendly and quite helpful. The sites were relatively large, but you are close to your neighbor for water and sewer needs. This really wasn't an issue, but I do like my space! The wireless internet ran quite well and the signal was strong. I had some connection issues, but I was generally able to get the computer up and going within 10-15 minutes. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, quiet campground. New Wi-Fi had a strong signal. Allows campfires. Only drawback for us was no TV. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The sites are mostly side by side hook-ups, but they are so large that it does not take away from your privacy. The view is wonderful (Lake Henry is less than a mile away) and it is very quiet, especially at night. Red Rock is a great place to relax. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were here for 2 weeks, including a MH group rally for a few days. We liked the park a lot. The owners are hands-on managers. There is good grass and gravel, firepits at each site. Sites are a little uneven in places, and hookups are side-by-side - but the open grassy area between rigs is great! Not a lot for kids to do - walk to the lake; go down the road a mile to rent a horse; swing... but we didn't bring kids, so it was okay. Big rigs fit in nicely; the satellites hooked up easily - no tall trees. No highway noise; no railroads nearby. Lots of people are return visitors. Now, if they could just make the fish bite! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The main attraction of this park is the isolation, but relative closeness to some of America's most beautiful landscape. Only 20 miles from West Yellowstone, and 20 miles to the Red Rock Wildlife Refuge. But fishermen enjoy one of the primo trout fishing lakes in the world, only 1 mile down a dirt road from the park. A great walk for your dog if you don't fish. Swans, eagles, hawks, elk, sandhill cranes, herons, pelicans abound! We come here yearly to rest! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Lots of shade, but trees so thick not much room on either side of vehicle. Hot tub and pool were freezing cold. Wi-Fi signal so weak hardly usable. Most sites so close together no room to sit in front of RV. This is more of a sleeping spot for Yellowstone visitors than a place to spend a week. We didn't hate it, but we certainly didn't love it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very wooded park. Nice hookups. Most sites are pull through. Beautiful and quiet. Close to Yellowstone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Great park. Heavily treed, lots of shade. Firepits and picnic tables were nice. We were here on a Monday, so it wasn't crowded. Staff was very nice. No TV channels working. Nice and quiet. Definitely would stay again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff here was incredibly nice and you feel like you are in the middle of the forest so it's a beautiful setting at each site. But I was really disappointed in the amenities. They do have an indoor pool but unfortunately it had no water in it when we were there. It's the middle of June at Yellowstone. Isn't this peak season! They have laundry facilities but they were broken too. So I had to lug my laundry to the timeshare my brother was staying at across the street. We had to use their pool too! There is no Wi-Fi at the campsite although you can drag your computer to the office and get Wi-Fi there. My wireless card did work fine at the campsite. One of the showers was missing a shower curtain and unfortunately it was right in front of the door so if you were getting dressed and someone opened the door, the whole world could see you naked. Come on -- a shower curtain would cost maybe $10! And my shower water wasn't even hot although my daughter says hers was hot but she complained about the number of spiders in her shower. She never took a shower for the rest of the trip outside of our RV after this one. If you don't care about amenities, this is an okay place to stay at a reasonable price. But this was our vacation and I was disappointed because I expected what I saw on their advertisements. We wouldn't stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Although the sites were plenty long, the turns were very tight with a ton of trees every where. Had it not been that this campground was almost empty I don't think I would have got out with out damage to my rig. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First we made reservations for five sites for a family reunion and they were to all be together. When we arrived we were all separated all around the park. We were told they had cable but got three channels that were very static and they said that was normal. We were told they were Good Sam and had signs for Good Sam but on arrival we were told they were no longer Good Sam and gave no discount. They have been doing that for quite a while from what people in the area told us. Attitude of people working there was atrocious and they were very rude. Restrooms were not clean. I would not recommend them to anyone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It looked it could be nice but had severe problems with organization and communication. We arrived at about 9pm. The receptionist was friendly and told us that the cable TV was not working. Also, the Wi-Fi was not yet working. Apparently the park had just been taken over by new ownership. The site was narrow, very unlevel and difficult to get into with out 28' motorhome. Water pressure was very low and we needed to leave our pump on. In the morning we found out the hard way that there was no water in the bath house. Apparently, the water had been all turned off. When my wife asked about this, she was treated like some idiot for not knowing water is turned off at that time of year. (Actually is was the only park without water that we encountered in our two week trip!) So, no cable TV, no water and no discount!! We suggest this park is avoided until the new owner gets his/her act together. We are newbies at RVing. I am embarrased to admit that the sewer hose popped off while dumping at this park. However, given this was by far the worst park on our trip, if it had to happen, so be it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate shown reflects a weekly rate of $200.88. We stayed here for 3 weeks while we toured Yellowstone NP via the West entrance. This park served our needs well.....the west gate to Yellowstone was about 15 miles from the campground, and that rate they charge here is definitely the best in the area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As mentioned before, the office is inside the launndromat, and the nearest grocery store is about 8 miles south of the campground (small store at Robin's Roost, with high prices...stock up as much as you can before you arrive! The next closest is in West Yellowstone, MT, outside the gate to Yellowstone.....also high prices!). Utilities worked well, and campground was quiet. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you just like a level site with plenty of room for your big rig and 50 amp, then this is a great RV Park. The office is inside a big laundromat, so this is an excellent place to do your laundry. They charge you an extra $1 for WiFi, but I had a pretty good Verizon signal, so chose to use my own Mi-Fi. I liked the fact that it was easy to find. It is just 1/4 mile South of the 87/20 Junction right on the I-20. Our spot was right on the road, but we ran our fan so we couldn't hear the road noise. We drove around to view other RV parks in the area, and this one fit our needs the best. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The rate I cited includes a Passport America discount. They allowed the discount the first two days, then full price for the last three days of our stay. Very good rate for this area. Park is approximately 14.5 miles from Yellowstone and two miles from Henry's Lake State Park. Park has gravel roads and grassy/gravel sites. Plenty of room between sites. Large laundry room . Park is clean and had no problem accommodating our 43 foot rig. It doesn't really have any amenities but that's not what we were looking for. You may want to stock up on your groceries before you come. Nearest grocery is eight miles away and we thought the prices were high. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate includes PA discount. Stayed here 10 nights to visit Yellowstone NP from the west entrance. Nicely spaced level pull through site with gravel and grassy area between. Wi-Fi available for 1.00 per day or 10.00 per month. We did not use it since cell was good here. Friendly staff and good laundry facilities. Good location to visit Yellowstone since most of the popular areas are a reasonable drive the west entrance. No real shopping or restaurants in area. Not a lot of amenities but a good base camp to visit the NP. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice base to visit Yellowstone NP and Teton NP. Sites are level and had picnic tables. Although next to US Highway the road noise was minimal. Would stay here for our next visit to YNP and TNP. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was at this park for five days or so and it was a very enjoyable stay. Grass sites but fairly wide spaces. The office staff was most friendly to me. This place is fourteen miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone. Showers were hot. I never ran out and I take long showers. There is a very huge laundry and the machines worked perfectly. Propane was available as is a gas station and the prices were competitive. Would consider staying here again but would like to be somewhat closer to Yellowstone since that's where I spent most of my time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay here, but there is good and bad about the campground. The good; Passport America rate for 50amp $17 was a very good value: site was long and pretty level with escort. The staff was friendly with lots of local sightseeing knowledge. Now, the not so good; the placement of the water and sewer connections was awkward at best. The water connection is below ground level, our site did not have an extension and we had to remove our pressure regulator to hook up our hose. The sewer connection is on an odd angle, again making it difficult to screw on the sewer hose. The camp host came by and did get an extension and did the reconnecting for us with our pressure regulator. The is road noise, we were in the row closest to the road. Overall, excellent value and staff: that overrides the few negatives. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Valley View has clean restrooms and showers, and a very friendly & helpful staff. WiFi signal is strong. They have propane service available. The park is right off Highway 20, very easy access, but you do hear traffic. The Laundromat is definitely handy. It is only about a 20 minute drive to Yellowstone National Park. Bring cash or your checkbook, as they don't take plastic. They don't charge extra for kids the way many parks do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects monthly stay. Additional fee for Wi-Fi, but reasonable. Staff is extremely helpful and informative. Park is well maintained, you can even water your lawn if you want, and wash your vehicles. Laundry facilities are good with plenty of washers and dryers. The only negative is the high traffic volume and the noise. Still a excellent park to stay while you are visiting Yellowstone area. Lots to see and do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first time in this RV park. The staff here is excellent, with many people coming back summer after summer. They escort you to your site when you arrive. They have good Wi-Fi, and our Verizon cells and MiFi worked very good here as well. They do have a rec room and they do crafts for the ladies on Tuesdays and bunco and other games on Thursdays. They don't have a playground but do have a dog area. Very nice park with gravel and grass sites, gravel roads and very easy to get around. plenty of room for big rigs to maneuver. They also have a very nice, clean, big laundry room. There is a lot to do in the area. Yellowstone is only 14 miles away, and then there is the Tetons, Quake lake, Henry's lake, and the Yellowstone river. We really enjoyed the people here and our stay for a month and we will be back. Our price was for monthly rate of $400 with electric INCLUDED. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff here were lovely people, very friendly and accommodating. I mentioned that I had a work presentation to do online, and they remembered and checked that my Wi-Fi was working properly. (It was very windy.) The sites were nice and level, and large. No trees or shade. This is not a park with events or clubhouse, but the area offers many things to do. There's a great food store down the road: the Robins Roost I think it was called. We visited Montana, could see the Tetons and drove up to Quake Lake, per the staff recommendations. Laundry onsite, strong Wi-Fi. We plan to stay here again, we were here for a week and have no complaints at all. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate reflects Passport America. There is no shade here but a few occasional pine trees in the park. Gravel sites not too close to each other. Huge laundry attached to the RV park, fast wifi, our Verizon air card was extemely slow, but that might just be our setup. VERY nice friendly staff. Terrific park for visiting Yellowstone. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice convenient park just 13 miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone. Very friendly hosts. Price is the Passport America rate for a 7 night stay. Roads are on the dusty side, but you can wash your rig with no additional charge. Nice. Bathrooms are a bit dated, but clean and plenty of hot water. Didn't really notice the highway noise at night. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Passport America rate. Nothing stands out while staying at this park; it's a flat expanse of semi-dead grass and gravel with good hookups. Sites are spaced well apart so there's plenty of room, and the pull thoughts are extra long. Friendly hosts will take you to your site and help park. No cable but clear shot to the satellite. Verizon cell service was good, Aircard slow, and good Wi-Fi was available for $1/day. Road noise is a factor, lots of trucks on the highway day and night are a distraction. With the PA rate, this is a good place to stay and we'll visit again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Valley View offers FHUs. The roads and pads are gravel. It doesn’t have cable TV, and there are no antenna channels are available. It offers Wi-Fi for a fee. The park is reasonably maintained. It can be tricky to park your rig because the roads are narrow. The staff was friendly. The park is next to US 20, so there was some road noise. It is a Passport America park. The $19 daily fee represents two days at the PA rate of $13 and one day at $26. There are no refunds. We used Valley View as a base camp for exploring Yellowstone National Park. For the money, we overlooked Valley View's minor flaws. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are fairly level, but check out tree at end of site for departure, some are very big. As always the park and sites need work, but it is an OK park and close to Yellowstone without $50 per night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park features nice, clean and quiet camp sites, away from the crowds visiting Yellowstone. We were here for almost a week, and used this camp area primarily for a home base. It is a great location with friendly hosts. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites are gravel, level, spacious and pull-through with a grassy area and picnic table at each site. They charge you $5.00 ( refundable ) to rent a bath house key and $1.00 per day to use their just so-so wireless connection . We switched back to our Verizon mi-fi device and cell which worked very well. Campers that stay for a month or more get the off highway sites but I suspect that they, like us, are subject to the truck noise on the highway. They don’t tell you but a water pressure reducer is in order as their pressure is very high. On the plus side they allow the washing of your rig and tow vehicle and appreciate if you water the grass between sites. It is an out in the open park and wind gusts, at least on the day we arrived, were extremely high so we ended taking in our awnings on many days. The closest eatery was 7 miles away and the closest grocery was 12 miles away in West Yellowstone so come prepared unless you want to travel to get your “eats”. There is an excellent Mexican restaurant located in a white school bus on Canyon street in West Yellowstone. Don’t let the looks of the bus fool you. The food is terrific, authentic and reasonably priced. There is a nice nine hole golf course about 6.5 miles from the park ( by the above mentioned Sawtell Road ) and on Wednesdays the men golfers can play 9 holes for 12.00 on this wide open course. For 6 more dollars you can play 18 and the course is very walkable. Valley View is the most inexpensive campground adjacent to Yellowstone National Park and with Passport America ( they offer a week PA rate ) we would certainly use it again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in this park 4 days. We got the passport rate 2 nights and reg rate 2 nights. They put us in the front of the park. The traffic noise was awful and there was a security light next to our camper which made it so bright inside our camper. Wi-Fi was good, but no cable TV and antenna wouldn't pick up any stations. Bugs pretty bad too. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We ran up to Henry's lake to fish and spend the night. The only place we could find that had a spot on short notice was Valley View. The park is pretty open and close to the lake, however, I guess I was expecting a little more seclusion thinking there would be a lot more trees than there were at the park. The place was busy as you would expect this time of year so it seemed to be more of a hectic atmosphere, but It was right across the highway from Henry's lake. We didn't catch anything to brag about but the park is OK given its location and amount of activity. The overall cleanliness was in my opinion less than adequate, but again there were a lot of people. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great place to use as a base for seeing Yellowstone. The rate reflects discount for Passport America. We were there for the 4th of July holiday and the camp put on a real good BBQ spread. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The spaces are a bit tight but we had no problem with our slides. Spaces were gravel and mostly level. They had Wi-Fi for an extra charge so we just tethered off of our cell phone. Wish they had cable. We could not get any over the air channels. We did see a moose walking by the park when we were getting ready to leave. Again, great place that I will stay in again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 4 nights while visiting Yellowstone, and found the park to be perfectly suitable for the visit. The drive to the park is pleasant, and the cost savings over closer RV parks made the extra travel well worth it. We got the Passsport America Rate for two nights, and $2 off the standard rate for the remaining two nights. The turn to exit our site was a little tight, but as there was not a camper directly in front of us, it was no problem. The snow was gone, but there were some mud puddles on some of the roads. All in all, it was an enjoyable place to camp. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First of all: the $13 was based on a monthly charge. Secondly: make darn sure you want to stay here as there are NO REFUNDS!!! Now lets get into it. We arrived for a 5 month commitment. Our assigned spot was not available as it was covered with 3 feet of snow, so we were put in another spot which was nothing but a bunch of mud. We were to stay here until the snow melted. There was no water in the park as the pipes were broken due to the freeze. We had no internet (we have an air card) plus we couldn't connect to our air card. We only had 1 bar on our Verizon cell phone. Actually the park really wasn't ready to be opened although they were accepting RV'ers. My husband had a job for the season in West Yellowstone which is 17 miles one way. Since we are full-timers and need internet and phone, we decided to go into West Yellowstone to see if we could find a spot, which we did. (It is 2-1/2 miles from his job.) So back to Island Park to explain to the owner that we had to move, and asked for our $305 check back. He only had the check for 2 hours at most. We were ok with him keeping the $100 deposit. He would not refund our $305 check. So, please make sure you are happy at this RV park as there are no REFUNDS. They have a very large laundry, but the machines are very old. You are 17 miles from West Yellowstone for shopping purposes. We will never stop at this RV park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We came to this area to visit Yellowstone National Park and chose this park (14 miles from the park entrance) based on price and its ability to accommodate our large rig. The pull through sites are approximately 70'x 35', gravel and grass. The interior roads are also gravel and narrow. It was a bit tight pulling into our site given the narrow road. The fact that the site is not angled and the 65' length of our truck and trailer. Many of the sites have an evergreen tree at the right front edge. They are of varying sizes. The larger ones could make turning right out of the site problematic. Fortunately, our tree was small and not an obstacle. Our sewer connection was imbedded in the ground and we could not use our one-piece, screw-on elbow connector. So we had to use a rubber donut, not the best solution. The laundry was great. It had been a while since I found one that high capacity machines to launder bedding and scatter rugs. Wi-Fi was reliable and fast. Charge is $1 per day and worth it! The do not accept any charge cards, only cash or check. We stayed here for 11 days. This is a very basic RV park, nothing fancy. It could use some freshening up: new gravel and grass maintenance. But, it filled our need for an inexpensive stay. The bonus in the area is, of course, the magnificent Yellowstone National Park. Next time, we might choose another RV park in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We spent two nights here in order to tour Yellowstone on short lead times. Valley View RV is in a nice location across from Henry's Lake (but still adjacent to the highway, not too noisy but not great). The sites are simple, this isn't a resort. Registration was super quick and they helped is get in our spot. Overall, it was a fine experience. The drive into West Yellowstone was pretty short. Even so, next time, I think we'll try to stay in the park. There's a long drive each evening just to get out of the park. Couple that with roadwork and we had some pretty late evenings getting back to the MH. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Takes only cash or check, no credit cards. Located about 15 miles from Yellowstone Park West Gate. Nice park, although a little windy in the evenings. Quiet enough. Good alternative if West Yellowstone is full. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although this park is right on the highway, traffic noise was minimal. Pads were gravel, close but not too close, and relatively level. Owners were friendly. A very short drive to West Yellowstone. Rate was a weekly rate, much lower than most others in this area. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the best RV park we have ever stayed in. the price reflects for the month and that even included electric. We stayed 3 months and have returned 2 years. I can't say enough about the owner and the staff they are all great. Hendry's lake is right across the street. Their is lots to do and the laundry mat is to die for, it has like 30 washers and 20 dryers. We will return to this place up from OK again and again.. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is nightly cost at monthly rate of $400, and the fact that we had to leave a week early. This is a decent location with easy access to Yellowstone National Park. WIFI was available for additional charge, my Verizon broadband via cellphone had very good signal. Mail forwarded to the park is cheerfully delivered to your door! Most sites have sewer at rear of site requiring multiple sewer hose extensions to leave toad attached to Motorhome. Sties are gravel & grass. We had a pleasant stay, though the location was a bit remote for our taste (no normal sized supermarkets, WalMart, and etc. are in reasonable distance). We camped here in a Motorhome.
PA is no longer honored in July. Wi-fi worked OK. No antenna TV at all. Verizon phone service good. Many holes from gophers could cause ankle injury. Sites are barely gravel anymore. Lots of road noise especially in front row. Sites, bathhouse and laundry is all that is there. Good price for convenience to Yellowstone. Not sure if we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of the nicest RV parks we have seen. The owner is always here and working to make the park better. The internet service is really good. The park is clean and very well ran. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
PA rate 1/2 price for 2 nights, then $2 discount per night for 4 nights. $25 plus tax is full rate. Pull through, full 50 amp hookup. 15 miles from west entrance of Yellowstone NP. No reception via TV antenna, Verizon cell and air card worked, good wifi. Prarie dogs and gophers are leaving loose dirt piles, and possibly fleas if you are walking dogs in the area. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Passport America rate for 4 nights.Large pull thru 50 amp sites with lots of grass.Nice view of Sawtelle Mountain. 14 miles to West Yellowstone entrance. Free popcorn in large Laundromat which houses RV office. If you stay here be sure to take the gravel road up Sawtelle Mountain.The view from 10,000 ft. is amazing.3 states and 140 miles on a clear day.Gorgeous mountain views of nearby snow peaks. We would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is clean and organized. The sites are very adequate for a large motorhome. The park accepts Passport America for 2 nights, making our cost for 4 nights $20/night. We did not use the restrooms. We would stay here again especially for its convenience to Yellowstone N.P. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I echo all other earlier remarks but must say the road noise is bothersome and there are no lights at night in this campground. The showers and restrooms were spotless and had privacy doors on all units. There are gravel roads and pull through sites with nice green grass and picnic tables for each site. The WiFi worked well for us although it did go down a couple of times. The big plus in addition to their location, is the wonderful manager and work camper type staff. All were efficient, very friendly and shared their knowledge of the area with us during our week long stay. The TV reception was abmysmal as we got one HGTV broadcast channel sporadically and nothing else at all via air waves. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Giving this park 7 stars only because the discount rates make it a fair value for the area, certainly better than West Yellowstone. Otherwise, it's not much more than a wide spot on the road, but the road happens to be next to Henry's Lake and on the way to YNP. Sign outside says $25 nightly. Their PA rate is $14.50 , with a 2 night max. Sites are gravel, mostly level, with grass and weeds . Couldn't hook up water filter due to concrete protector. TV antenna gets 2 fuzzy channels plus PBS. Absolutely no shade but it's usually not too hot here. Wi-Fi is another charge but Verizon aircard and cell work fine. Large,locked restrooms not used much. Huge laundromat. No dog run. Need a car to go anywhere. Popular with boats and ATVs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park has no amenities, but that wasn't why we were here anyway. Only 14 miles from Yellowstone was the main reason we stayed here. Also very close to Henry's Lake which we could see from our site. We were right on busy Hwy 20 but could not here any road noise while inside our rig. Nice large, clean laundry room but still had to wait for dryers on one occasion. Small convenience store and gas station right next door that also sells fishing licenses. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This nondescript park actually has a lot going for it. While with few recreational amenities and certainly not exciting, it has wide spaces with nice grass in between, good gravel, easy access and well placed connections. The first row of sites closest to the highway get a fair amount of truck noise, but even there it is quiet livable. Since we were there over 4th of July weekend, we didn’t get the Passport America rate, but the full rate of only $25 was still a bargain. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nothing fancy, but nice park for what we wanted. Good central location for touring this area at a reasonable rate (Passport America). Parks in West Yellowstone much more expensive. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were parked nearest Highway 20 so we got a lot of road noise. No problems with satellite TV, phone reception, or WiFi. Nice, large pull through site with plenty of room to park both RV and truck. Gravel sites require leveling of RV but not too bad. Clean, large laundry facility. Fuel and small grocery store next door. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice spot to tour area and Yellowstone at a good rate. Work campers run hot and cold. Wifi didn't work 5 of the 7 days we were there but they offered a refund. The 90 degree turns into the sites require you to unhook your toad at the office or if you have a trailer, you need to pull thru and then back up to straighten out. Not a great park but plenty good for the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nothing fancy, but a very nice park with friendly people. We have 40 foot motorhome and we almost never use park restrooms and showers so don't know about these. What we want is full hookups with 50 amp service, level sites, and WiFi that works good. This park has all of those. Cable TV would be nice for local news, but satellite worked fine. Only about 15 miles from Yellowstone and a good alternative to the very expensive parks in West Yellowstone (about $40-$50 per night). Would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An okay park, nothing special except for the huge laundry center in the office, and the location close to Henry's Lake and West Yellowstone. Pretty sunset view. Many seasonal residents ($400 mo.), best to call for nightly reservations,especially Passport America. PA get half off, then they add $4 for electric, wifi & tax ($14 rate ), plus there's a $5 key deposit. A good deal for this area, tho a plain park. Sites not level, water wasted daily on weeds, barely TV reception, Verizon cell works, wifi inconsistent but usually strong. Friendly, greasy spoon cafe next door. Park owners were either brusque or nice,depending on the situation. Worth a repeat visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park to stay away from all the activity of West Yellowstone but close enough to enjoy it if you want to. 13 miles from West Yellowstone. Be sure and visit Mesa Falls and Big Springs. Mountain views all around. Grass mowed short but needs some trimming. Staff very cordial. PA park. We stayed here a week and would stay here again. We enjoyed our stay here. Verizon worked good! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an unusual combination of laundromat and RV park, but it does have several good points going for it. It is 14 miles from West Yellowstone but costs less than 1/2 the rates of parks in that town. The laundromat is much larger than what one normally finds in a RV park, and in excellent condition. The sites were all pull-throughs and very large. You do have a good view of Henry Lake, but this is not a destination park, but rather a good but inexpensive alternative to other base camps to explore Yellowstone Park. The staff is very friendly and experienced with the local scene. When we come back to the Yellowstone area we will definitely base out of this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
