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.
Overall, we are impressed with this campground, a very nice facility. Like most of our State Park experiences, we liked the lower cost, but found our visit to be not as quiet as other facilities where we have stayed. We arrived after hours without reservations, but an "off-duty" Park Ranger readily assisted us to get situated. It appears that each camp ring has one site with a sewer hookup, and that site is occupied by the host for that ring - the rest of us get to unhook and drive to the "dump". It is a very nice "dump" facility, but when I stay for a period longer than the capacity of my holding tank, I am not going to appreciate the fact that I will need to break camp mid-stay to take care of that chore (maybe if I bring a really long hose the host will allow me to "T" into his sewer connection?). Our site was located adjacent the shoreline - nice. We are a fan of trees and shade and would like to see more than the lakeside ring where we stayed provided. Some of the other rings seemed to be better off in the tree/shade department. We will definitely include this campground in future plans - we have already reserved five nights in August.
Fish Lake is an absolutely beautiful setting. We found this park and the staff to be OK - nothing especially great. Generally, the maintenance of the park has room for improvement, and the staff seemed interested in little more than collecting payment. Located near heavily forested area, some shade trees in the park would have been a plus for us? The slope of our pad exceeded the range of our leveling jacks without using additional blocks. We look forward to returning to the Fish Lake area and would not be opposed to staying at this park in the future, but we would probably look at an alternative park in the area prior to committing to this park again.
This is a "no frills" family operated park adjacent the family farm. The shade trees have been growing since the family purchased the farm about 60 years ago (very mature shade trees). The management is "hands on", friendly and very attentive. We did not utilize the laundry/shower facilities, but at a quick glance they seemed immaculate and well maintained as the park was generally. The "Teton Peaks" are located about 70 miles to the East and could be seen from the park. We enjoyed an extremely quiet and peaceful stay, and will definitely stay here again.
