Though I didn't spend much time at this resort I still find the need to write a review. It was quiet there this time of year which played out nicely for my group and I in the tentsites. We almost had the place to ourselves! The tentsites are situated right along the lake which provided an amazing view from the... More

I called for a spur of the moment trip and was pleasantly surprised that they could accommodate us in one of their cabins. However, I understood the availability when we arrived. The cabin we were assigned is far, far, far from "modern", the bed was one of the worst beds I have slept on in my entire life, the entire... More

Nice place to park the camping trailer close to Yellowstone, just outside the town of West Yellowstone. Great camping sights nicely laid out, shady spots, wonderful views of lake and mountains. Only gripe I had was the 5-1/2 miles of washboard road to get there.

I wanted quiet, tranquility for my mornings and evenings. This campground is 8 miles from Yellowstone Park, the tent sites are on Hebgen lakeside & have sunrise, sunset views. I kayaked into sunrise one morning with Canadian geese. The facilaties are immaculate and there is even a dishwashing station. There are boats to rent and very genial hosts. I couldn't... More

We had reserved two rv spots, and they called one of them a pull through. It was literally in the middle of the park road completely blocking the road and putting our door in a gravel road. The owner isn't very friendly and it's mismanaged,all they seem to care about is money. Everything is geared towards getting more money out... More

Like many other reviewers here, I ended up at this place because YNP was completely full. I arrived around 6 pm and was given a tent spot right on the lake. Each tent spot has its own fire pit and a picnic table. It was warm enough to swim and people were floating on the lake. I watched the sunset... More

Very crowded, tents are extremely close. Bathrooms are easily overwhelmed. Location is great and the lake is beautiful, but the place is poorly run. Its clear that the owner places more value on money then he does providing a quality experience. We were crammed into a very small space and then found ourselves even further crowded when a group of... More

We tent camped here for 5 nights while exploring nearby Yellowstone. The resort was established in 1947 which I suppose accounts for the very small lots. The tent sites are beautifully situated right on the lake, but only a few feet away start the RV sites. In the park office you can charge your cell phone, buy basic canned or... More

This place was dilapidated. It was sad. First, the road to the resort was terrible. Next, we arrived and were feeling duped by the presentation of their website. We were expecting a professionally maintained facility. What we found was disappointing. The water was brown and I wouldn't advise drinking it. The boats and water toys are tore up. The staff,...

This place is tucked away by a dreamy clear lake just 6 miles outside the West entrance of Yellowstone NP. By far the prettiest spot with full hook ups compared to caning in the park. It's not a Walmart parking lot so you may have to back into your spot. A cute little store and the whole family serves you.... More
