The trees need to be trimmed. It's nice to have trees but maneuvering a large motorhome can be a problem. When leaving my space, I had to make a very sharp right turn and rake the right side of my motorhome on the tree limbs. Sites are dirt, very dusty. They have full hookups, restrooms with showers, indoor heated pool,... More

The rooms are clean but nothing extravagant. Very comfortable with a western feel. For the cost of the rooms it would be nice to have a breakfast bar provided. Convenient enough for those looking to get outside West Yellowstone to access the park. Great location for those fishing the Henry's Fork and Box Canyon.

Booked this campsite for its proximity to Yellowstone. The reviews made the place sound OK. Arrived just before a thunder storm that lashed us with hail. Given all the hotels in West Yellowstone are $300 a night and full had no choice but to camp. Cold miserable evening with the restaurant closed at the local bar we had to cook.... More

We booked this place due to its proximity to Yellowstone, only 25 min to the west entrance, and the low cost. We were expecting something much less than what we got. SMR is wonderful, the quick check in and cert friendly staff. We had a slight issue with the tv in our room. A call to the front desk and... More

This cute, quaint hotel is every snowmobilers dream! clean, cheap, friendly staff and beautiful views! If you are expecting luxury you are out of luck! However, if you want to ride your snowmobile up to your room door this is the place!

We have stayed here a couple of times when visiting my friends. It can fill up particularly in the winter, as a lot of snowmobiling takes place from here. The rooms are basic to say the least. The walls are fairly thin. But it provides a bed to sleep in and is reasonably priced for the family. You will definitely... More

If you are visiting West Yellowstone but do not want to pay the exorbitant hotel charges, Sawtelle resort at Island Park is a very good option. It costs a fraction of the West Yellowstone hotels ($110 for a night in a queen bed room in June), is 30 mins away from the west entrance of the park on US 20... More

Because of the absurdly high cost of staying in or near Yellowstone, we stayed at the Sawtelle Resort for a fraction of the price. Good service and an ok room. I was very happy with the price, but the room had a few issues. . . The toilet was very weak, the girlfriend had a cold shower (I did not),... More

We were given spot #19. We were told it was the only place available and there were no pull through spots. We drove through the campsite and saw several empty RV sites. Their advertising included a pool, and wifi. Neither of these was available in our assigned spot. The utilities were located in such a poor place that we had... More
