This campground is remote, close to the entrance of Yellowstone Park. Gravel, no picnic tables, small campground. It was too far away from Cody for our needs, but is was clean and rustic. We needed to go to repair, and decided to only stay 1 night. No refund policy so we paid for four days.

Very clean. We had made our reservations at this park because of the indoor pool and hot tub. The pool was closed and the hot tub was not functioning. Wi-Fi was good and included in the rate. We had a monthly rate. Easy access from highway. DO NOT USE GPS instructions from Garmin or Tom Tom. It will try to divert you to a back road that is no longer in service. The laundry and shower rooms were clean and in good repair. I am learning that is as important as level parking spots!
Nice sites and regularly mowed. Very rural and pretty quiet. The on site laundry only has 3 washing machines. One shower that is clean but worn, no handicap designations. Nicely maintained indoor pool and hot tub. Each site has a picnic table. WI-Fi is in addition to the nightly rate. Cable TV is satellite. We used MI-FI, but heard that the Wi-Fi is not reliable. There is no beach access, and you have to drive about a mile down the road and then walk about 1/2 mile to the beach. The managers are friendly. The facilities are aging. The exercise equipment is old and beginning to show signs of rust. This is our "Home Park" , but I doubt we will spend much time at this one. Great for a weekend and it's especially kid friendly. Some park models are being installed. The sites are not paved, but are fairly level. Fortunately it didn't rain!
