While the cabins seem to get good ratings, the motel section is terrible. about all that can be said for it is the staff keep the rooms clean. Np towel racks, 3 people crammed into small space, peeling wall paper and paint - and so on. A small coffee pot but few outlets so one has to unplug the TV... More

Called less than a month in advance to book a cabin for my family to stay on Labor Day. I read the reviews so we were a little apprehensive about staying here but it was a convenient spot to stop for the night. I was glad we did after we got in there. It was a quaint little cabin and... More

Bear Lodge has some wonderful pies. We stopped here on a drive for a break and had to have some pie. Did I mention they have pie? Try the Huckleberry Pie, really! There are places to stay and RVs can nestle in, but this seems more like a day stop place dusting the non-snow months. It's a good place to... More

What a shame! This RV park could be outstanding. The sites are wide and tucked among tall pines. Unfortunately, the sites where the lodge workers live are pig sties. Junk all over. And not only are the permanent sites an eyesore, but all through the park are piles of debris - piles of discarded wood, rusted machinery and anything they... More

Went with the family, but could also be great for couples. Had a nice bar, Jacuzzi, and indoor pool. The restaurant was amazing, the rooms were also nice as well. Had a laundry room that was unattached that was nice. We stayed in the lodge not one of the cabins. Bathrooms and showers were nice and well kept. Not overly... More

We have been coming here for 15 years and we really enjoy staying at Bear Lodge. However, this year I thought the rooms were looking more worn than I remembered. We like to stay on the ground floor as we are always on our motorcycle and it's easier for loading/unloading every day. I know these are the original rooms but... More

We loved staying on top of the Big Horns while on our way to Yellowstone. I wish we would have stayed more than one night. The location is perfect, and it has all the amenities to meet the needs of a family: pool, bar and restaurant. The place was very busy, but it was the peak of summer tourist season.... More

The room was rustic but we expected that. We enjoyed watching kids catching fish in the pond that's on-site. The lodge is historic and the location is unique. I had a great prime rib in the lodge restaurant and my wife had an excellent steak. The restaurant service was good, one of the two waitresses literally running around in the... More

I tried booking a wedding at Bear Lodge Resort recently and it was a complete fail. I had previously stayed here and thought it would be a great place for a wedding. However, it took me almost three months to finally get to talk to the owner (who is the only one that has permission to book weddings) about reservations.... More
