Bring your bug spray. Lots of bees and mosquitos at all hours. Nice comfortable RV park. Nearby train blows its horn pretty good around 12:21 a.m. Much of the park is permanently occupied. Lots of trees make satellite reception iffy. No cable. We had a beautiful, long, level end site with a patio side grassy area large enough to hold a concert. The roads and sites are hard pack dirt and recent rain had messed them up a bit but they were good with filling in with gravel and rock. We lost power twice. Really low voltage readings. Not sure if RV park doesn't have enough capacity during peak times. Water pressure was good, not great. We were able to get good satellite reception at our site. Park is nicely maintained, the office area is very nice with lots of flowers and the pool is very inviting. Restrooms are dated but we're fine and clean.

This review is influenced by the poor weather. It had apparently rained heavily the day before and the roads and sites were a mess. Our site was a mud bog with little streams running through it. We have a big rig and were placed in the B section, which are pull thru sites with no site development at all. Just a dirt spot, a few weeds for grass and a picnic table. Sites are long but fall off on the ends. There are other pull through sites, thinking the A section, that are nicer but shorter and share a patio. The one thing that made this stop good was killer WiFi. Utilities worked fine. Restrooms were clean. No cable.

We have stayed at 90+ RV parks and never once has it been a State park. Either they couldn't accommodate large rigs, no full hook ups or vault-only toilets had us looking elsewhere. What a totally wonderful surprise. The park is beautiful and the campgrounds are thoughtfully laid out. We stayed in the Plover loop. More open and sunny than the other loops and also a longer walk to the restrooms. The Plover loop sites are carved out of the sides of the road and are long, level, spacious and pull through. The sites are hard pack dirt. Some have views of the lake. The utilities worked great, the water pressure was fine and the satellite reception was prefect. The restrooms are as nice as any private RV park.

An otherwise lovely stay at a lovely park was ruined when 48 hours after departing we received an email saying they were charging us an additional fee for damage to the site we stayed in. Despite nothing in the regulations against placing a portable satellite dish on the grass, we were penalized for doing so because it yellowed the grass. After a ten day stay and paying over $450 CD, we thought this was petty and unfair. The satellite dish was open and obvious on a corner site and staff had every opportunity to suggest we move it to another location off the grass. With that said, this is a beautiful, well maintained RV park with a lovely setting just off the Bow River. There is a mile long off leash walking/bike path along the Bow River with access from the RV park. Our site, #114, was a wonderful corner site with a large grassy patio area and privacy shrubs. The sites are a bit tight on the driver's side with mature trees making it a little challenging to get slides out. Patio sides are spacious and there is a gravel cutout for toad if need be. Sites are gravel and level. Utilities worked fine. Habitable tents were allowed in addition to RVs at sites and made for overcrowding to neighboring sites. Wide, paved interior roads. No cable, 5 over the air channels and WiFi that worked well except it bumped you off constantly. Restrooms were nice but $2 per five minutes for shower was ridiculous. No highway noise. Close to downtown and shopping.

Based on ratings and reviews, we we're expecting much and that's what we got, so it was fine for an overnight stay. Staff was friendly. Sites were gravel and mostly level. Utilities were not so good. We had to go under our rig and to the adjacent site and share their pedestal to get 50 amp. Receptacle was a good 3 feet off the ground and horizontal, not vertical, so we had to prop our cord/surge protector on the picnic table to hold the weight. Sewer was accessed under a plywood cover. Water pressure was about 35 psi. No cable or over the air. The shining star was the WiFi: awesome, and what a surprise. The bathroom was old and needs work.

Expected more based on GS rating. Sharp turn off frontage road to enter the RV park. Must own the road. Leaving the RV park and heading east requires a u turn through a turnout. Registration queue was nice. Staff was not very welcoming. We were assigned to the Arizona section in the back where most of the bigger rigs were located. Paved interior roads take you to a huge uninviting gravel area with one tree per site and otherwise not a bit of landscaping or grass. Sites were muddy but otherwise level. The area when you first enter the RV park is nicer with grass and more trees. No cable, no over the air and no Free WiFi despite what they tell you. Tried several times at office to get on and couldn't. Utilities worked fine. We were in the back row with highway right above us. Very noisy. Showers were not free but restrooms were nice. For what they charge, would not come back here.

A rough R.V. park, suitable for an overnight stay. Only a couple sites suitable for big rig and tow. GPS took us on circuitous route. Utilities were fine.

Nice location 6 miles from town and a mile off the highway. Registration queue was spacious. Staff was friendly but a bit disorganized. Think we had someone new learning the ropes. Sites are gravel, level and long. Grass on the patio side. Utilities worked fine. WiFi was good. Restrooms are in the main building and were spotless. Not much shade but good for satellite reception. Perimeter of the park has extended stay, a couple were junky but overall not a problem.

This is a lovely RV park full of gardens, flowers, grass and trees. Very inviting entrance and office. Staff was friendly. Roads are narrow and made worse by shrubs and trees. Most sites are well shaded with mature pine trees. Sites are gravel, long and mostly level. Utilities worked fine. Our power pedestal and water were right in the middle of the site next to us....felt bad for them. Restrooms were spotless. The ones closest to the office seemed a bit dated.....the ones further down were modern and very nice. WiFi did not work well at all for us.

A great location about a mile from the interstate with an Albertson's just down the street and Bozeman a half hour away. A narrow road takes you to a tight turn into the park. The park is laid out nicely. Good spacing. Grass patio areas. Sites are gravel and mostly level. We got a lot of rain one night and there must have been a sinkhole on our site because our left rear sank about six inches (Site #B4.) Utilities worked fine. Basic cable. WiFi was very good. No problem getting satellite reception. Clean, modern "private" bathrooms, each with shower, toilet and sink. Staff was a bit overbearing. Big on rules, and they were constantly circling the park in their golf carts looking for infractions. Reminded me of my HOA back home! A bit pricey.

This RV park is great, made even better by our previous stop at the National Park campground inside Grand Teton, which was very nice but a bit primitive and offered no WIFI, cable, over the air or cell. We have absolutely nothing bad to say about this place.......except the time they choose to clean the restrooms. They are all closed between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. We found this very inconvenient. You would think they'd pick a time like 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. when most everyone is still out exploring Yellowstone. The location is perfect, just a mile from the west entrance to Yellowstone. The registration area is huge and the staff are super friendly. The roads are paved and wide. The sites are gravel, long and level. Very spacious. Lots of grass and just the right amount of trees. Most sites are pull through but there were some back ins along the perimeter. Utilities worked fine. Decent cable with about a dozen channels. No problems getting satellite. WiFi was really good most of the time but did bog down once in a while. The park is laid out very nicely, with restrooms scattered throughout. The restrooms were modern and spotless. We stayed in site 200, which is a corner spot with a huge grassy area on the driver side. A real gem.

We have stayed at over 70 RV parks and this is the first time we have tried one inside a National Park. They are not usually accommodating to a 43 foot rig and tow. This place was! We considered staying at The Virginian in Jackson and actually checked it out during our stay. It was just O.K. and we think Colter Bay was the better choice, especially with its location right in the middle of all the action. Check in was fine and the staff was very friendly. Roads and sites are tight but manageable if you take your time and are careful. Roads are paved and sites are hard packed dirt and most are not level. Our site was fairly level front to back but tipped to the passenger side quite a bit. First time the rear passenger tire lifted off the ground after leveling. Our site, L93, was tight getting in and out of but once positioned, was actually quite spacious. Utilities worked fine. No WiFi, cable or over the air. We couldn't get cell service from our site so we couldn't even fire up the JetPack. We were able to get satellite with our Tailgator, but it took a lot of work finding the right location, which ended up being on the roof of our Jeep! Restrooms were very clean. The RV park is an easy walk to the Village with all the guest services you'd expect. No open fires, not even propane fire pits.

Easy access off the freeway but set back far enough that there is no highway noise. The entrance is not well marked and there are three....take the first one you see. Large registration queue and friendly staff. Most sites are buddy sites with two rigs per pad. We were in site 31, which was a true single pull thru, which was nice, but was not level and our rear passenger side tire was off the ground after leveling, first time this has happened. Interior roads a little tight but manageable. Utilities were fine. Restrooms and laundry were nice. Morning coffee and afternoon cookies. May need a tailgater to get satellite. They need another dumpster.. Filled up early on the weekend and was overflowing by Monday.

There is no formal check in area. Just pull your rig off the road as best you can and go to the office, which looks like a guard booth. You'll have to read a ten point pet policy and sign that you read it. sites are tight. Rigs enter in opposite directions so you end up sharing a utility side and a patio side. We stayed in site #34, which worked out well since the site next to us was reserved for dry camping an is rarely used so we weren't crammed in on the patio side. No cable and we couldn't get over the air either even with a booster. WiFi was excellent, as were the utilities. Little shade. Staff was friendly. Sites were asphalt and level. Big rigs with tow will have to park their tow on the perimeter, across the road from your rig.

We stayed here several years ago. We had just started RVing and at the time, it was one of the best RV parks we had been to. I recall wanting to pick it up and take it with us to all our stops! We have been fortunate to stay at many nice ones since but this remains a favorite. It has such a good feel to it. It's located about a mile from the interstate down a quiet dead end road with an agriculture field as a neighbor. The check in area is spacious and well marked. The streets are wide, the sites are long and spacious, the restrooms are spotless and plentiful, each with their own toilet, sink and shower. The grounds are immaculate. Staff is super friendly. Utilities worked fine. Great cable. Great satellite reception. The one thing that really disappointed us this time was the WiFi. We could get on o.k. but it bumped us off continuously, like every few minutes. Nice pool, activity room and small gym. You can even wash your rig and tow. For the price, you can't beat it.
