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.
This is a nice campground; it has flat level, hard sites, with easy hookups. We had a back-in site, but there was plenty of room to get it done. The sites were wide and the campground was quiet. The staff was courteous and competent. The Shoshone River runs behind the park, and it has a panoramic view of the mountains. It is about midway between Cody and the east entrance to Yellowstone. The laundry was closed because the leech bed collapsed and they were awaiting permits to install a new one. The restaurant was nothing to brag on, but they did serve a good sturdy breakfast buffet. I would camp here again.
We stayed here the last week of July. It is a great base for visiting Crazy Horse, Rushmore, Devils Tower, Deadwood, Sturgis and others. The camp sites were roomy, shaded, with plenty of water and power. The restrooms were clean and nearby. We did not use the pool, but we really liked this campground.
