Rocky Mountain RV Park and Cabins
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Everything about this RV park is good except for the fact that the pitches are close together and there are lots of flies in the evening (which of course they cannot do anything about). If you can get over these, then you will have a great time. We booked over the phone and were given a seniors discount, check-in was easy, we were guided into our pitch by someone who knew what he was doing, water pressure is ok, wifi is superb, the bathrooms are clean, washing machines are $3.25 for wash and dry, there is an evening story telling event around a camp fire and free crazy golf. The park is close to the northern entrance of Yellowstone and convenient for the town.

My family and I stayed here in Summer 2012, after we had stayed inside Yellowstone for 4 days. Usually I read reviews with a "grain of salt," as I believe that usually bad service is a result of rude customers...until now. Everything was fine (VERY nice amenities: bathrooms, wash sink, laundry, etc.), then we met the owner. He acted extremely childish towards myself and other customers. When I attempted to smooth out the situation with him in order to find out where we offended him, he threatened to kick us out of the park without me saying a word. After that the rest of the staff acted as if we were trouble makers, and I assure you that we are not. We felt like we were walking on pins and needles the rest of our stay.

In retrospect, we would have been fine staying in the park with out water/electric hookups. The weather does not require a/c and the staff at Yellowstone National Park is very cordial.

We were disappointed in this RV park (we stayed at 15 different ones in 4 states so we have things to compare it to). It was in a good location (just outside the north entrance of yellowstone) and was clean but the spot we had (#9 but 1-10 are all the same) was like being in a parking lot - no trees at all and crammed together. The store is worthless since it's just souvenirs and Christmas stuff - no groceries/camp supplies at all. I'm sure you could walk into town for supplies but it was raining so we didn't do that. The people were ok but it's not a kid friendly place - they were rude to our 10 yr old when she dared to try to get a putt putt ball without an adult w/her. Oh, and the putt putt was one of the reasons we chose this place but it's awful - it's 9 holes that mostly have nothing to them at all and are as close together as possible. It takes about 5 minutes to do the whole course and then you have to walk back to the office (w/an adult!) to beg for another ball if you want to play again. Overall, this rv park was a disappointment to us.

Room Tip: sites 20 to 91 are on the upper part of the campground and seemed to have a little more space and tr...

We are just wrapping up a seven night stay here and we're not sure why this park has had the negative reviews that it has. We found the staff to be friendly, the grounds clean, the showers and restrooms clean and very nice we might add. The laundry facilities was spectacular with ten washers and ten dryers. It has a great location overlooking Gardiner.

As far as the man in the golf cart. We thought that he was a great help to lead us to our site, this eliminated a lot of needless driving and positioning to best get into the site. Who wants your neighbors having to back up or drive around again to enter the site properly, this is noisy and distracting. The less driving around the park the better! And as far as chasing people off that wander in, GREAT JOB! The sign at the entrance clearly states to sign in at office if not staying there and it makes us feel much more secure while we are away.

So, we rate this a top 5 and would stay here every time we pass through.

I was taught you could catch more flies with honey than vinegar but these people don't know that adage. I guess they figure no one ever comes back anyway so they will treat their guests (and their staff) like they are less important than their inane rules! 2 pets only, must walk them in a grass patch the size of a parking spot. No exceptions to their rules, in fact, they have signs up telling you they have "eyes everywhere watching". The next time we visit YS, we won't go near this place again!

Our family of 4 stayed in a cabin for a couple nights and loved it! Our kids loved the view and the ability to walk to town for dinner and ice cream. The cabin was immaculate and very comfortable. We highly recommend this as a home base for exploring Yellowstone. Others have commented about rude staff, but we did not encounter any such interactions.

Very nice campground. Beautiful bathrooms and well kept grounds. Nice view overlooking the river and the town. You can see out to the north entrance gate of Yellowstone Park also.
Only one bathroom room/Shower building...which is closed from like 11:00-Noon daily. Closed means closed. Head to town if you need to "go."
Very strict, but that also helps keep it nice. You are not allowed to put out your camper canopy or a screen tent or portable shade (unexpected wind could blow them into other camping units causing damage.)
You are not allowed to hang anything to dry outside...must be hung inside your camping unit!
A bit on the expensive side for camping...I think it was $50+ a night for our pop-up camper with just water and electric (no sewer).
I would go back. If you're interested, just make sure you are aware of and can live with the rules. They will be enforced.
It really could use a swimming pool. There is NO PLACE to swim/cool off in the immediate area.
