We were on a cross country trip and decided to stay at Yellowstone for a few days, but when we found Blackwater Creek on trip advisor we decided to stay for four days. They were great! Very family-friendly, the staff were nice, the food was good and reasonably priced.The cabins were rustic and clean. When we left and dropped our... More

I was looking for a room for one night as I made my way into Yellowstone and was lucky to find a small cabin available at Blackwater Creek. It was wonderful, rustic yet clean with the rushing creek right behind it. Very relaxing and beautiful place. It was great to have a place with no tv, no radio, no internet... More

We stayed for 2 nights on a brief trip to Yellowstone. This ranch is located close to the park, and is comfortable and pleasant. There is a game hall with billiards and foosball, a large outdoor campfire area where we roasted marshmallows and told spooky stories with the kids, and the main cabin has a nice dining area, as well...

We stayed here during our quick trip to Yellowstone. The grizzly cabin was awesome. We are a family of 5, so it can be hard to find a place for all of us to stay. This had 3 twins and 1 double. Perfect! We just intended to sleep here between our trips to Yellowstone and coming from Cody one night.... More

My husband and I loved our week vacationing in the NW part of Wyoming. After spending 2/3rds of the week in Jackson Hole/Grand Teton Natl Park and Yellowstone our final 3 nights were booked at the Blackwater Creek Ranch. We really didn't know what to expect but I envisioned cowboys, campfires, horses, and chuckwagon food. I believe we were the... More

I just left Blackwater Creek Ranch. It's a piece of heaven on earth. Nestled in a lush, green canyon with dramatic rock cliffs and water rushing all around, the ranch is perfectly situated between Yellowstone National Park and the town of Cody, WY (15 minutes to park's east entrance and 20 minutes to Cody's museums, shops, rodeo). The staff, meals... More

We actually stayed at the end of June of 2013, but just now getting around to the review. The place was beautiful. The sound of a mountain stream and horses are a nice change from an all work city dweller like myself. Short trip to yellowstone's east gate. About 15min. Then another 30min before you get to the loops of... More

Just left Blackwater Ranch and am very much wanting to return! We were the last guests of the season and felt like the first! We slept like logs in the cabin, enjoyed breakfasts in the lodge, picnic dinner outside our cabin and campfire! The ranch is between Cody and Yellowstone's East Entrance, very convenient to both. We loved the staff.....complete... More

If you want rustic with no flare and outdated everything, this place is for you. Although we are city folks, we have done the outdoors and for better quality and price than this place. Not sure why everyone is saying "Friendly"? We certainly didn't feel that way or got any of that. Not even the cowboy that took us on... More

Being avid Yellowstone adventurers my wife and I wanted something different this trip. We researched all the horse ranches outside the park area. We chose Blackwater based on the customer reviews we read. We were mot disappointed. What a great time with Jonnie and Diana. They truly do make you feel right at home. Don't expect Marriott, but if you... More
