The staff were very friendly, but keep in mind that they are CASH ONLY! The sites were all very nice, and they let us pitch our tent in an open RV site. The site was in a great location, and they had a laundry facility and nice store. The only bad thing was that the sites were very small--we were... More

This campground is perfect for a stop in the area. It's in the middle of the city, providing easy walking access to anything in Cody. The bathrooms and showers are clean, there is a laundromat and wifi, and the campgrounds are litter-free and pretty. However, if you are looking for a genuine nature experience, this is not the site for... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Yellowstone NP. The campground was very spacious and tidy. The bathrooms were clean and nice. The location is also good, a bit far from the center (too far to walk) but you could walk to the famous Cody rodeo. From here you have easy and fast access to Yellowstone NP.... More

We couldn't have asked for a better campground in Cody! We traveled with 3 children (11,9,9) and were able to walk everywhere we needed to go and otherwise there were busses that would pick you up right at the campground! The staff was absolutely a pleasure! I high recommend this campground!

We have stayed here several times even though you are packed in like sardines. Lots of shade and level sites, good cable and clean bath/showers. Made reservations months ago but made no difference, you have to take what is available when you arrive. There is lots of road noise. The staff are very friendly and will stay here again when...

I won't get into the crowded feeling you get in the park even though we were only 1 of 12 campers in a multiplex site. Nor that it is close to many town attractions related to the Old West and Buffalo Bill Cody. Or that the traffic on the main drag to Yellowstone is always heavy and loud, What was... More

Yes, the RV pads are situated at close quarters and there's not a lot of "personal green space" to enjoy, however, the grounds are tidy, the restrooms quite clean and the laundry has several machines. It is right around the corner from the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum, the historic downtown area and, in the opposite direction, a new Walmart. We... More

We were disappointed when we drove the long haul from Rapid City, SD and ended at this campground. It was basically a large parking lot with huge RVs. There were no fire rings, or places to hang out other than inside our pop up. Even the laundry room was locked up early at night. It did not feel safe for... More

This review is for 7/25/14 This campground is perfect as a level place to park your camper and either be out and about all day or restock for Yellowstone. Yes, it is crowded and like a big parking lot full of RVs. So, if you are looking for a place to enjoy hanging out around the camper...forget it. You'll be... More

We got a teepee. There was enough space for a small dog to crawl under the sides! It was late and we were tired, so we set up anyway. Then we spotted a spider on the wall/roof. And another. And another. On the floor, too. Then on the doorway! We rushed out as fast as possible and one of us... More
