I stopped here for the night before heading to Yellowstone the next day. I arrived just around sunset and had booked a cabin. The cabin was small but just what I needed. It was clean and right next to the bathrooms. I can’t comment on...More

Spent some time in late August, weather was beautiful, campsite is wide open. Local gas station 1/4 mile up road had a little bit of everything you need. Verizon was exceptional with tower above park. Clean bathrooms and showers.

We arrived after being quoted the price on the phone. Then we were told there would be an additional $5 per night fee for our towed vehicle, IF we unhooked it. Since the park is miles from anyplace, unhooking is mandatory. In order to dump...More

The facilities (i.e., outhouses) are cleaned daily. Since we have a travel trailer, that didn't make much difference to us, but it's an example of the staff's conscientious care of the park. There are miles of trails, good fishing, wonderful views and easy access to...More

Easily one of the most most beautiful settings for an RV Park. On the shores of Lake Henry, and under Mountains on all sides, this really was an incredible find. Only ~20 minutes from West Yellowstone. The mosquitos were pretty bad - but we found...More

Stayed here while touring west Yellowstone. It is about 20 min from town but well worth the drive. The views are unbeatable. The lake is quite large and supposedly great for fishing. We rented a house for 3 days and were pleasantly surprised by the...More

We made reservations literally a week before we went. I was surprised to find camping in the West Yellowstone area with that short of notice. Usually thing book up way in advance for July and Aug. There are some KOA's... More

Not sure about the tents. Maybe you could call them. There are stores close by, but they are definitely in the "convenience store" category. There are two full-service grocery stores in West Yellowstone, about 15 miles away.
