This is a neat campground, close to Yellowstone Ntl. Park, but away from the crowd. Has large sites and the employees go above and beyond to help you with any problems. Also, has a restaurant if you don't feel like cooking. It has an Inn, cabins and the campground. I highly recommend this place.
Messed up our reservations
We drove up to our site and we did not have a sewer hookup for $50 a night. Since they had only dirt and a small amount of rock around the sites the recent rain made it very muddy. We went back to the office and got a refund since they had no sites available with full hookup even when I made the reservations I requested Full Hookups!!! They acted like it was my fault that the mistake was made. We've been on the road for 2 months and I have not made any reservations without Full Hookups!!! I accepted that a mistake was made no matters who fault but the manager made it a point that is was not her staff. Was that really necessary? You decide.
Stunning Views Great Place to stay? Maybe?
The rate is based on water/electric site for a month. The CG will come and pump out for a $15 fee. I have huge tanks so I got it done weekly. A dump station is available for free if you want to unhook and drive over. The views and surrounding countryside are stunning. The staff is very friendly and accommodating too. The restaurant was good and the bar too. The pool and hot tub and shower houses are very clean and so is the campground. Why a lower rating? This sounds like a 9 or 10! But the owner burns trash in large 55 gallon drums. The smell is noxious and he burns plastics. Plastic burning can spread toxic chemicals, but the smell can overwhelm you. How can someone who offers this stunning view close to Yellowstone openly burn trash and plastics? And, why? If you go, make sure the burn drums are not close by. The campground is for sale, maybe the new owner will be respectful go the environment.
Great little place
I like that there are individual bathrooms, sites are kind of tight with no grass, tucked in the mountains very nice little rv park. I would recommend if you want to be away from Cody which is about a 10 mile drive and it is the east entrance of the park. Took us 9.5 hours to get here from Denver city center.
We are going whitewater rafting today, Yellowstone, and rodeo tonight.
Cody has lts of stuff, lots of shopping and dining quite a little gem of a town, we will be checking it out.
The reviews I read about the town of Cody made it sound like a trashy town, but it was actually a great town with plenty to do and more than a few restaurants. There was even a rodeo going on. When we where there in July 2012, which I guess runs for a while every summer. There were a few other rv parks in Cody, we didn't stay there because the reviews were bad, but when we drove by they looked decent. Not as much space as the Yellowstone Valley Inn.
The Yellowstone Valley Inn was a pleasant surprise. A plus or minus (depending on your preference) is that the Inn is 15 miles outside of Cody on the way to Yellowstone. The setting is very nice and quiet surrounded by the mountains and right on the river leading up to Buffalo Bill Dam. The RV park is gravel, each slot has its own fire pit and hookups. There are also cabins, a gift shop, a tiny pool, a swing set and a restaurant/bar. The staff were excellent and made the extra effort to make you feel welcome. We will stay there again, but this time more than1 day to give us time to explore more before heading to Yellowstone.
Nice,clean campground in beautiful scenic area, friendly staff, has inn, restaurant, saloon on premises, reasonably priced
This ia quite a complex; there is the RV park, the inn, a restaurant and saloon. The RV park is totally gravel and the pool is minuscule but there is an enclosed hot tub. Each site has a fire pit and a picnic table. There is a beautiful view of the mountains. The shower building has individual rooms, each with a shower, sink and toilet. Showers are small but tidy. There is a free continental breakfast from Monday to Saturday. A stream runs right behind the property for fishing. It claims to be the closest park to the West entrance of Yellowstone.
