This is a nice campground, ideally located for us to visit the Lake Tahoe and Napa area by car during our six-night visit. We were in the "no animals" part of the park, arguably the nicer part. The back-in gravel pads (no pull-throughs) are narrow, and the hedges that separate each site make the sites even narrower. We had full hook-ups with 50 amp service. The campground is just inside the main gate, easily accessed by making the first right turn followed by another immediate right turn. We arrived on Saturday to find the office closed on weekends. However, the manager happened to be driving past the campground and saw us arrive. He stopped by to welcome us and give us a lay of the land. Our name and site assignment were prominently displayed on a list in the office window. The office is only open for limited hours on weekday mornings and afternoons. The campground claims to have basic cable TV available for free; however, we could not get any stations. We were told that long-term visitors can pay for a cable box through the local cable provider. We were able to get excellent digital TV coverage over the air for free. One must pay for Wi-Fi. We did, and it was a waste of money. We could access the Internet less than half the time, and would often lose the signal and have to attempt to login over and over. Definitely not worth the cost. All in all, the location and reasonable nightly cost make this a worthwhile stop. Strongly suggest having reservations.

Staff and campers were very friendly. Pull-thru site was quite long. Be careful when making turns in campground. Some are very tight and must be taken as wide as possible, especially if you're in a longer motorhome. Best to have someone outside to guide you through the turns. Some of the trees could have been better trimmed.

Terrific resort, with experienced, informative and very friendly staff. Sites are double wide and paved. Restaurant, fuel, pool, bike rentals, and a lot more amenities. Membership park: we were here for 15 nights at a nightly rate of $30.50, but only because the resort manager took pity on us. We were on a site that was designed for a cabin. We pulled in to take advantage of an excellent view, requiring long runs for hook-ups. If you can get in here, this is a first-class park. Others have mentioned, "Too many rules." We thought the rules were certainly reasonable. When you're hosting close to 500 rigs and cabins, rules are truly a necessity. Wish it hadn't been so dry. the grass needed water, but the long hot, dry and windy 2012 made that impossible.

Just spending the night, and this CG is OK. Site is level, and it has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. Critter waste all around the grass, and grass is weedy. Offers some shade. Would probably try another Buffalo CG if we come this way again.

Very nice CG within walking distance of downtown Cody. All members of office staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. You receive a full briefing regarding the Cody area when you check in--very helpful. We were in what may be the nicest site in the entire CG--#32. We may have been given that site because we made reservations in May-3 months in advance. The back-in site offered almost constant shade, a paved pad. good privacy (end of row site), and full hook-ups. The only negative was that except for sewer, hooking up required me to place my hoses, electric line and cable across my next door neighbor's "yard"--embarrassing to say the least. The CG should consider separating the hookups so that each site had their own. A newer area had pull-thrus, but offered little shade. The CG can get crowded, but the location and exceptional staff make it an excellent choice when visiting Cody.

Very nice park. Staff is terrific: go out of their way to help. Everything is kept spotless. Sites are gravel with generous grassy areas. Full hookups with cable: about a dozen channels. We were here for 17 nights, in two different sites. 4 types of sites for RVs. Back in with no vehicle (toad) parking (vehicles park in overflow area.) Premium back in with vehicle parking. Pull through. Premium pull through. Wi-Fi is included in price of premium sites. No discounts for weekly or monthly stays, but Good Sam discount applies. Most of our stay was in the new section, in a premium back in site. Regrettably, we could not use our awning in the afternoon because of wind. All new section sites put the awning side to the west, the direction of the prevailing wind and sun. Sitting outside was at best difficult in the afternoon and early evening because of the wind and sun. Also, tree placement is such that the front end of awning was in the middle of the small tree when extended: a problem that will grow along with the tree. This is definitely the premier RV park in the West Yellowstone area, and virtually every site was taken the entire time we were here.
