We stayed at the Ponderosa for 3 nights. We were pulling a trailer with our motorcycles. The trailer did not really fit on our lot but the management was so nice we were able to park it elsewhere on the property. We did not spend a lot of time at the resort since there is so much to do in... More

If you like 2 dollar washing machines that do not drain or spin (you hand wring your clothes) and token slow Internet while yapping dogs are allowed all dam* day in crammed in tight spacing (picnic tables at neighbors sewer dump) then this is the park for you. I am still angry even though I am now around 400 miles... More

Yes there is a highway on 2 sides, but if you want to camp and be close to the best cody attractions, museum and Irma thus is the place to be. Staff is great, sites were pristine, and again location location location.

Very nice quiet campground, we stayed there over Labor Day weekend, it was full, but still quiet. It is close to every thing in town and to Yellowstone, I would definitely stay here again. The staff was very friendly.

One of the few parks still operating in late September. Close to Walmart and Cody museums. Staff friendly, park had good level sites - like most in town locations, very little space between units. We camped in a motorhome towing a car in a long pull thru site, there were good sites for our size unit as well as smaller... More

A great location. Very helpful staff, and the facilities were what we needed. Great central location for visiting the Buffalo Bill Museum complex, which is a MUST DO in Cody. They allowed us to put a tent on the same RV site (4 adults), and didn't gouge us on price.

We spent four nights here while touring the Cody area and really enjoyed it. The owners are very friendly and even gave us a discount for a mix-up with our reservation. We had a pull through site which wasn't too close to neighboring sites. Quite a few trees in the park which helps give it a nicer feel. The location... More

Located in the center of town, it was convenient to everything. The highway was noisey. Beautiful park with many trees. Clean restrooms and showers. Walkable to everything. Really nice helpful people working in the office. We would stay here again.

We stayed in the lower tent camp-ground for 2 nights in mid-June. It is a very popular park and was bustling the whole time we were there. The lower camping area had water and a portable toilet but you had to hike or drive up the hill for showers. There were 2 large group bookings during our stay and both... More
