This is right smack in the middle of town. Super-corny, perfect for a wild-west family stay. Not scenic, and you are right on top of your neighbor. But you can't beat the location, and the amenities are great. Walking distance to Dairy Queen, Sierra Trading Post, shuttle to Cody Rodeo (you could walk). Walk to the Irma Hotel where they... More

Outstanding campground. Very clea and great water pressure in showers. Lovely employees. CASH ONLY. More than willing to help you schedule any tours . Easy to get in/out. Close to grocery store as well.

The Ponderosa Campground is in a good location - close to shops, restaurants, museums, and the rodeo grounds. It is on a main highway so road noise is a factor if you're in a site close to the highway. Our site was the worst in the park only because a large patch of the grass was roped off at the... More

The Ponderosa campground has a great location in the middle of Cody and close to the location for the night rodeo. The staff is really helpful. Though the RV spots are a bit tight, they have a great tent camping area in the back. This area is really quiet with ample room for tents. The other tent camping spots are... More

Our gravel site for our 30 ft RV was not very level but they do have concrete sites that are. We were a walk up so my be book ahead to get a better site. The restrooms were a bit squeezy and old but clean and hot showers. Conveniently located with walking distance to Buffalo Bill Centre and restaurants

We added an extra day here. The park is within walking distant of the Cody Museum and down town. Bathrooms were clean park was nice. We would stay here again. The laundry facility was clean and worked well. There is a nice little store, I did find a outfit for a 2 year old cheaper at the museum.

WE were able to get into this campground because we had a pickup camper. Sites were small however most people are there just to use as a travel stop. We were within walking distance of downtown and all the attractions. There was a shuttle for the rodeo from the campground and the trolley tour picked up up right there. Staff... More

We stayed in one of their 7 little cabins. No A/C but worked out well, because the wind was great. Bathrooms and showers are community but very nice. Each cabin has a porch swing. It was great to relax and take in the scenery. Cabins have no sheets or pillows, so you will need to bring your own. We really... More
