Buffalo Crossing is a great location! It is literally a turn away from the west gate. You can walk to local shops and restaurants. However, we got caught in a wind storm and got postponed a day to our campsite and called to let them know. The lady who works there tried calling me the next day I guess?? Anyways she SOLD our spot that we already paid for... after MULTIPLE phone calls we got our spot back... but I guess they like to babysit their customers to see where they are and if you don’t answer due to bad reception your spot gets sold. If it wasn’t for that I would give it 5 stars.
Adequate sites on pea gravel (not crushed). No shade as this is a newer park. The pea gravel was a poor choice; we had to re-level our trailer on the second day due to settling. Very hard to walk on. Lots of pot holes to avoid. It is right near downtown, lots of restaurants and souvenir shops. IMAX theater and Yellowstone Trading Post adjacent to park. No TV, WiFi was pretty good. Both of us able to stream without issues. Radio was sketchy-we got 2 stations-NPR and a religious station. Managers friendly and helpful. Bath/shower/laundry sparkling clean.
Hands down one of the best places to camp. Neat, clean and the facilities along with laundromat were always being cleaned and well taken care of. The hosts are very helpful and it was very close to entrance for Yellowstone.
We chose Buffalo Crossing because Grizzly raised their rates $30 a night when Fishing Bridge closed for the season. BC is the closest and newest park in W. Yellowstone. Their dog run is separated from YNP by a wooden privacy fence. The entrance road is a one block walk. BC is clean, well kept and new. The roads and sites are gravel, but they are heavily graveled. While we were there, it rained quite a bit and created many fairly deep potholes that were not filled in by the time we left. The sites are reasonably large with wooden slat patios and picnic tables. The patios are actually preferable to cement. The site we had was relatively level and stable. The dog run was long, half grass and half gravel. Our biggest wish was that the dog run had been fenced completely so we could take our dogs off lead. The staff was very friendly and helpful, providing us information about YNP, the surrounding area and suggesting a visit to the park ranger's office (visitor's center) for more information. One negative is the requirement to walk up to a window to check in rather than going inside an office. I took that as an insult since I had never seen this setup in an RV park and only for a motel in a seedy part of town. Because the park is centrally located, it was easy to walk to town and do your shopping or dining. We walked to Wild West Pizzeria several times because it was only a couple of blocks away.There is a lot to see and do within easy walking. Aside from the fireworks on the 4th, this park was very quiet and comfortable. The water pressure was excellent and the water was the best we have seen thus far on our long trip. No problems with the electric. It has no cable but the reception for satellite service was excellent. The is-fi was also very good. I will recommend this park if you want to stay on the west side of Yellowstone and if we are in the area again, I will use the park again. I recommend making your reservations well in advance, however, since this park books up early for the summer months. It is a small park with about 26 sites.…
Good points ; lots of hot water, clean bathrooms. Well positioned for park incursions. Walk to town & many dinner choices. Lots of souvenirs & tee shirts. Museum and wild life park are good Bad points; rotten WiFi, bus loads of Chinese tourists delivered to store & omnimax
