Strange park but beautiful area, right on the river. We pulled in late on a Friday night, never have we pulled into a state park to be greeted by 3 park rangers. Out of concern we asked if we should be concerned about anything and the kind ranger said no, they're just there to keep the peace. One ranger had his truck parked in the way of the entrance and didn't move his truck so we could pull through, we had to maneuver through the exit. We found the area we had reserved, the Cottonwood. It's just one big loop. You don't back into sites, you park right there on the road! It was tight pulling our 5th wheel through the area. Luckly we had reserved a spot on the LEFT side of the road othewise we would not have been able to open our slides! Our door opened to the road. The park was packed and there was music playing well past midnight. The bath house was AWFUL! The showers were creepy. Doesn't look like they have ever been updated. We were here for a sporting event and had to be up at 5:30am and didn't get back until late in the evenings so we were unable to explore the park. I don't know if we'd come back here in the future. I prefer to support our state parks but something just wasn't right about this one. Our state is making cut backs and closing some of our parks early this fall, when you see 3 rangers working late in the evening at 1 park it makes you wonder what kind of people the area attracts.
Expensive. The sites were only okay, ours was not level. The bath house is in need of repair and remodel, the shower head didn't work in one and the doors were hard to open and close, the walls aren't high enough so you can see over the stalls plus the windows are right there with no privacy on them. Not worth the price we paid. We did have good service from local PizzaHut delivery.
We stayed here for 6 nights as our base camp for Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. The park is nice, there's good space between sites. Not impressed with the staff, if you have questions they have very little knowledge - better off crossing the street and asking the folks in the lodge. There are 2 bath houses, one is new and the other is very old. When they close it for cleaning they take a long time. Everything is expensive but you're in Yellowstone.
