Chose this stop because of out of the way location that had shower facilities, midpoint in 10 days of making the rounds of national forests by tent. They did make arrangements for a late checkin. When we arrived, we tried to hit the shower first (1030pm). There were 3 girls VIDEO chatting in the tiny bathroom\shower house designed for two... More

Stayed here as we went to Yellowstone Jay's minute. Recommended by visitors center. This place is a dump. Avoid it it you can. 5 mile gravel dusty road to get in and out. Waste of gas to get there Bathrooms are pathetic. Inadequate and tint and filled with mosquitoes. Biggest frustration is lack of any caring by any staff member... More

We tented at Madison Arms and thought it was a beautiful location! They have areas to swim, fish and boat. The resort also has beach toys to rent. However we were pretty disappointed with our stay. We made our reservations well in advance and were told we had a lake side site...when we got there we were told we did... More

We stayed 9 or 10 nights here while exploring the area. We were tent camping and the price for our spot, right on the lake was very reasonable. The view of the lake and surrounding hills was gorgeous. The staff was friendly and the general store had a great selection of food and other goods. The bathrooms and showers were... More

The resort was only ok. The first 5.5 mile drive from the main highways to the resort is very long. It doesn't sound like that long but when your top speed is 30 mph, it takes about 20-30 minutes to get there. The beds were really, really uncomfortable. We stayed in a cottage and they have a oversized twin bed... More

Because all of the cabins were booked and we don't own an RV, we rented one of the travel trailers they have at this RV park. It's on a large lake, with watercraft available for rent. It's on the west side of Yellowstone, which is the side where most of Yellowstone's largest attractions can be found. The management is very... More

Ok, I was glad to have a campsite but I will be cleaning for days. It was so dusty sometimes I could feel it on my skin and you can see it in the air. The people were very nice but you do have to go down a washboard dusty road for five miles. It quiet and nice once settled... More

This place is terrible! You have to travel over 5 miles on a washboard gravel road to get there. The staff was only interested in taking our money. Ride and no help with us to back in our site or show us where it was. Very close quarters. Do not stay there

This was our first time out to Yellowstone National Park, and we chose Madison Arm Resort as our base camp. We pretty much just slept here and didn't use much in the way of amenities at the resort. Also, I use the term "resort" loosely here. This is a campground with a few cottages/cabins to rent. There is a small... More
