We pulled in to camp on the North Shore. It was amazing. For $17 we could not beat that view! Waking up facing the lake was amazing. We drove up the road to use the shower. You do have to pay for them - make sure you have quarters! But it is worth it to have a shower! Great place!... More

Stop at the many spots around the lake. We saw deer, pelicans, geese, and elk. There is also a population of bighorn sheep. Fishing gets better later in the summer.

They advertise showers on the web site. It doesn't say anything about paying. The views are beautiful but nearly no trees for privacy or shade. Both campgrounds are located next to a busy road. Loud semis and sirens kept me awake at night.

Okay, if you want to see some beautiful scenery and have ample opportunities to shoot some cool pictures of Big Horn Rams, Moose, Bison, Deer, Elk, Prairie Dogs, Bears and other critters along with some outstanding geologic formations, this is one place you don't want to miss. Be sure and check out Buffalo Bill Dam, some interesting stories go along... More

My drive throughout the state park was beautiful. I could not stop taking pictures. The rams, deers, moose, and bison roamed freely. We were driving to Sleeping Giant Ski lodge and the mountains were awesome.

bad location , lots of highway noise and windy, but the only option if you want to launch a boat on the reservoir. ok for the money I guess, we did not like all the signs of regulations, upon regulations, we would not recommend it, hit the national forest and BLM lands before this or the national Park

Stayed here for 4 days in August. We spent time in Cody and we went into the Eastern side of Yellowstone during our time. The bugs were bad at the tent sites that had trees right next to them. But luckily it was a bit breezy to keep them down. It's mainly an RV place since we learned they didn't... More

I hate to write this because I'm afraid it will be crowded the next time we go there and we won't be able to get our favorite site! This campground is located on the north shore of the Buffalo Bill Reservoir and it is absolutely beautiful. The sites are large and convenient, there are several sites right up the hill... More

We had a very nice pull-thru site on the water. Stargazing was amazing -- some sort of gnats terrorized us in our camper, but nothing that we couldn't handle. A short trip to Cody for all the activities, and the visit to the dam right by the reservoir is worth yoru time. Overall, very cool campground!

This park was beautiful. We just went in and looked around but people were camping there. The ranger was very nice.
