Very friendly staff, sites have shade, very reasonable and only 25 miles away from Yellowstone National Park. Would definitely stay here again! - DRBurns

Beautiful little park and the grounds are well kept. The office/laundry was very cluttered. The restrooms were reasonably clean but both the mens and womens showers had hair in them and smelled a bit moldy. - TweenerLJ

Friendly owners. Great danish and pizza. The laundry takes a long time to do a load but gets your clothes clean. I appears that only the long term sites close to the office have sewer. Nightly rate is unknown. - Norm Nice Guy

Sites were spacious and large and that is about the best that can be said. Overgrown with weeds; our site had quite a bit of broken glass. Every thing is gravel, dirt, and weeds. This place could have potential if someone would do some work. Sites on each side of us had leaking water pipes, which were reported, but numerous people said no one seemed interested if fixing them. Bath house left a lot to be desired. Husband liked location for fly fishing, but I won't stay here again. - JonesAussies

This is a quiet, park nestled in the hills near Henry's Lake. Friendly owners and camp hosts. The sites are large enough for your unit and arranged such that everyone has a good size patch of grass between you and your neighbor. They could stand to refresh the gravel at the sites as most of it is worn down to dirt and makes a mess when it rains. Access is fairly easy. Good size area to walk the dogs on leash. Utilities are good except for wifi. When we checked in, they bragged about how great the wifi is. We were then cautioned not to exceed the 500 Meg daily limit or we would be cut off. No danger of that happening. The signal is constantly dropping out and trying to reconnect. Inside, outside, it doesn't matter. Verizon signal is also marginal so if internet is important, you might want to look elsewhere. We actually left a day early and could not get any refund. - Pjoe

Staff are super nice and very knowledgeable about the area. Park has plenty of room with great views. Park is a few miles off the highway in a beautiful quite location. Will stay there again. - DCM2015

The owner was amazing; so were the other workers there. You couldn't ask for nicer people to deal with; truly a wonderful change! The park is out in the country - very pretty and not a bad drive from the main road. It is a "bear aware" park - but they keep it very clean. A number of campers were not adhering to the "no coolers outside" - not sure why that wasn't enforced though. We stayed 3 nights.
They really drive home their "quiet hours" - unfortunately this is one thing that isn't enforced. This was the noisiest campground in our 7,000-mile trip - including the ones near highways and train tracks. The noise was from other campers - at night they kept at it until quite late - but the worst was in the morning. We didn't know people could slam doors so hard and so often. And the noise stared at 6 AM and continued until 10 or so. They actually stated mowing very early (never had a place do this before) and the craziest thing was mowing around our site WHILE we were breaking down. We really didn't appreciate that at all.
There is no cable (no over the air either) and the WiFi is sketchy. This is to be expected based on where it's located so we had no problem with that - just a heads up for others. They limit the amount of data you can use and the family beside us had their WiFi turned off without warning.
They sell firewood however it was too windy while we were there to have a fire. If it hadn't have been for the noise - and the emphasis on being quiet - we would rate this higher. This is a tough review because we really appreciated their help and totally enjoyed talking to their staff and the area. The lack of amenities was even OK - but the noise was unacceptable. All of the hosts live there (and owners) so they had to have heard it and they need to revise their mowing policy. - Rjjjbrown

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The sites are spaced so that you don't feel like you are on top of you neighbor. They have picnic tables and fire rings. All sites are dirt (forest floor).
The facility is absolutely NOT big rig friendly. Roads paved and the size of golf cart paths. They are overgrown with lodgepole pine. Some corners are impossible for a big rig resulting in having to drive the wrong way through the park and through unoccupied camp spots to get out. Some sites do not accommodate multiple slides.
Satellite TV was impossible due to the thick forest. - Sidehill

Price reflects a daily rate based on 7 days or more. Choice pull thru sites are taken by summer residents. We were in site #44: wooded, needs some trimming of branches and removal of a tree stump. If you have a big rig, only use pull thru as back large sites are limited. ATV activity was minimal. Indoor swimming pool water was cold. Indoor hot tub water was cool and tub needed cleaning. Restrooms appeared to not have any heat. Make sure you have a surge protector as lights flicker daily (thought it was us, but problem was confirmed by a summer resident). Okay for a reasonably priced base camp when visiting Yellowstone. - crazylady

I tend to agree with one of the other reviews, the trees need to be trimmed. It's nice to have trees but maneuvering a large motorhome can be a problem. When leaving my space, I had to make a very sharp right turn and rake the right side of my motorhome on the tree limbs. Sites are dirt, very dusty. They have full hookups, restrooms with showers, indoor heated pool, laundry and we found the Wi-Fi to be fine. Don't be fooled by the sign on the front of the building that shows they offer cable TV, that's only for the attached hotel. They make a big point that they are very much in demand but there were lots of empty spots. At any rate, we would not return. - Coopsecondact

We enjoyed our month long stay at Valley View Rv park. The monthly rate is a great value for the West Yellowstone area. Our grass/gravel site had a generous width. Although it was along the highway, nights were quiet. We made several trips to Yellowstone National Park, West Yellowstone and area attractions such as Big Springs and Harriman State Park. The area is very beautiful. We enjoyed amazing hikes especially those along the Continental Divide Trail. We stayed in a Class A rig and plan to return. - suz111

Stayed for three months. Close to highway and the associated noise. Sites are plenty long enough to accommodate the longest rigs and are about 30 feet wide. Wi-Fi signal was not strong enough and if we were able to connect, we were soon dropped. Having a site closer to the office or restroom access points may correct this. - scubadave

Made a reservation and then when we arrived they said they didn't have it. Very small family run place without much in the way of amenities but very close to Yellowstone. We were forced to stay on "the other side of the road" where the longer term local contractors were housed. No amenities other than hookups over there. Acceptable in our circumstance as we were late arrival early departure but not for longer term stay.
Beautiful scenery and don't forget your bug spray!!! - redhedmedic

This is a big, beautiful park next to a lake. The sites are huge. There are lots of places to walk. It is very windy in the area so it is sometimes hard to be outside. However, it is also peaceful and serene. It is also a fair drive to Yellowstone. We were here 3 nights. We've stayed closer to Yellowstone before but those (private) parks pack you in like sardines. At Henry's, you have lots of space and it is ultra quiet. - beckydmc

The park setting is beautiful. Great to just sit outside overlooking the lake and surrounding moutains. Nice walking trails right from the campground. Site 20 was sufficient for our 40 ft and tow. Probably the biggest drawback was no sewer hookup. But we managed ok for 7 nights being real careful with the water. Came here to visit yellowstone as most everything closer were all booked up. - Denny Pike

The hosts kept the facilities and campground spotless. Free WiFi for 20 minutes every 12 hours. Verizon and AT&T good reception. No problem with Directv reception. Did not encounter mosquitoes as others have said. It was breezy. - Robertz675
Aug 2016 - $40.00
40 per night for "lakeside" uneven and bumpy dirt/grass area. It's more expensive in Yellowstone, thus an ok deal. Didn't like long screws laying along basketball court where people drive their cars very nearby. Also the marina area needs to be cleaned up some. Stuff laying around. No soap in the public restroom. Only one roll of toilet paper. The other dispenser was left empty.
They charge 1 dollar extra for purchase less than 10 dollars if use credit card. Products in store are expensive. People seemed nice. Lots of people from other countries frequent this campground, which was refreshing, and fun to talk with them.
It's beautiful here, though they could use less lights at night. Ruins stargazing, to some degree. - mynyel

Beautiful views of Henry's Lake. WiFi is very poor. Verizon was not much better. Fantastic sunrises and sunsets. Boat launch and boat rentals. 15 miles from West Yellowstone. - g peter
Jul 2007 - $23.00
The park is located on Henry's lake. The park rents docks and there is a boat launch ramp. The pull through sites are dirt and are not level. I was able to level my motorhome ok with the levelers. The 50 amp power was ok at between 106 and 110 volts. Water pressure was a little low at about 40 lbs. I was able to get satellite tv with a remote dish. This park is a low cost alternative to the much higher priced West Yellowstone RV parks. This park is about 16 miles from West Yellowstone. The WIFI worked 5 out of the 7 days we stayed here. We would stay here again. - pcguy

We stayed for a month at $350. The woman at the hotel desk (same management) wanted to charge us a higher rate but she checked with someone (not sure it was the manager) who said if that was what we were quoted then that is what we should be charged. The manager is a ghost. Poor maintenance in the park is true as previously noted. We were told that we could have mail delivered at the Park but learned that the manager never checks his PO box at the post office. Even the post office was aware of this. We used general delivery instead which worked perfectly. We endured a water outage of several hours and had to get the Park's router reset in order to use their internet service. We chose the location because of its proximity to Rexburg for shopping and other conveniences (about 30 miles) and to Yellowstone (55 miles). There is a very nice small grocery and several restaurants in Ashton. - We are Fulltimers

First the positives about the park. Most sites are fairly level. Now the negatives. On the phone I was quoted $199.00 for the week. At check-in the woman at the counter who claimed she was new and not sure of the weekly rate charged me $245.00. After checking my notes I contacted the manager who told me "no problem" and he would take care of the charge to my card. This didn't happen so a couple days later I asked him again. He said he would take care of it. It is now late in the following week. We left the area and it has not been done. Looks like I'm out the additional charges. After check-in, we were told to take a campground map and pick a spot. The whole campground had an unkempt appearance. A bleak weed lot would be accurate. One camper who spoke to me early on said "the mower near his site had been sitting for a week". The pull-throughs have the services on the left side but any of the back-ins have it on the right. The first site I checked out had a dead rat in it. We did have a choice of some pull-throughs so selected one, dropped the legs on the 5th wheel and started to hook up. The water valve was broken and shot water everywhere. Checked the next site and it also had a broken valve. Finally found a site with all services working and moved to that space. There's a sign at the front of the park "Trout Pond Coming Soon" but the pond is actually a rain water retention pond with weeds all around it. The manager is seldom at the park. He appeared for a short time in the mornings and appears to be generally uninterested in the park itself. He did answer my cell call on the rate problem. We picked this campground because on a map it seems central to both Yellowstone and the Tetons. I discovered there is a road that goes to the middle of the parks but it is a dirt road and I was told very slow driving. Being closer to the west entrance to Yellowstone would have been better. If you were stuck for a place to spend the night this park could work out but that's about it. - srfnut

POSITIVES: Convenient to highway; had all necessities (cable TV, 50 amp, good water pressure, WiFi) and fairly level. NEGATIVES: WEED CITY. The first day we were here, I spent picking the weeds out of our site's gravel, just so it looked better. Although we were in a motorhome, we chose a back-in spot in the very back of the park for more privacy and a little bit of grass for the dog. If possible, pick the back-in spot at the very rear, far left side. Best spot in the park. Mostly gravel park and this town is dead. There is very, very, very, did I mention VERY little to do in this town. We also thought we were closer to the Tetons and Yellowstone and found the dirt road the prior comment told about. We decided to try that road cause it looked like a shortcut, but 5 miles up it, we ran across a guy who said a grizzly bear had just been in the road. We turned around and went the long way home. This park would be fine for overnight only. Do Not Stay Here as a halfway point to Yellowstone and Tetons. You will regret it. - Softie

We stayed at Jolley Camper for three nights. It's a quaint small, family owned RV campground. The owner let us choose our own spot. He did inform us prior to choosing, that spaces 1 and 10 had low voltage. The spaces are close to each other on the dirt road, but still easy to park and unhook. We chose site 13 which is on the grass and closer to the highway, but not to close. Our door opened to the large grassy lawn. There is a great dog area in the park. There is a train track next to the park, but was not to busy with trains. This is a nice place to stay with friendly owners. There isn't cable and not sure about internet service. We had satellite so no cable wasn't a problem. It is a quiet park with nice views of the stars at night. We would stay here again. - Jeff Schleter

Nice little family-run campground. Previous reviewer's description of the campground layout was accurate. We picked a site on the side away from the center strip. It was a bit closer to the road, but then our door opened to a large grass lawn instead of the road. Owner was very friendly and helpful, and allowed us to pick the site. Nice view of the Grand Tetons. Small campground had lots of toys for our kids. We felt very comfortable and happy here. - BosRv

This is a very dusty, aka dirt roads. Your front door is only about 10' from the road. Rigs are parked nose to back in a line. Were in site #1, very low voltage. We can only run one AC/heat pump or microwave oven at a time, and not even that if the park is full. Voltage down to 104 and Progressive unit shuts down.
On the plus side the young owner is a very nice fellow and understands he has a problem. They have only owned it for 3 years. - traveler1952

This might be my favorite RV park yet. Most sites are nestled in a picturesque Aspen forest. Many sites are hidden from their neighbors by the trees. This morning a doe and two fawns wondered thru our site. Weekdays the park is mostly deserted; and even when it fills up on weekends, it remains quiet and peaceful. They have a par 3 golf course, which is seldom crowded, so you're not rushed from hole to hole. There is no WiFi, but we had excellent AT&T and Verizon service. We had no problem streaming Netflix. There are no street lights in the park. Night is pitch black unless the moon is out. The stars are magnificent. Yellowstone Park is an hour away. There is a Walmart 30 minutes South in Rexburg. The new owners are working hard to make this a great RV park. It is now called the Yellowstone Golf and RV Resort. We hope to be back many times. All sites either had a fire ring, or cinder block fireplaces. - Quig

This was a great place to stay to get away from crowds and enjoy some peace and quiet. We travel fulltime and spend a lot of time at national parks and other highly populated areas. Sometimes it's nice to get away to a quiet park like this to enjoy some down time. People do visit Grand Tetons and Yellowstone from here, but we already had plans to go to both of those and stay closer, so this was just a chance for us to catch up on work and relax before we got to those more crowded parks. While we were there we enjoyed dinner at Five 11 Main which I believe is owned by the same people that run the RV park. Very good restaurant! I would highly recommend it. The RV park is a little tight getting into, and some sites are small and hard to get into because of the trees. We have a 41 foot 5th wheel and it took some maneuvering to get into our site so that all 5 slides could go out. But once we were in, we had plenty of room and really enjoyed having the trees for the shade. Verizon 4G worked well here which is important for us since we work remotely. And they let me have a package delivered here which I appreciated as well. We really enjoyed our stay here, and the people that run it are nice and friendly. One word of caution, our GPS took us down several miles of dirt roads that we probably shouldn't have been driving down with our house behind us, but once we were on those roads there was no way to turn around. There are paved roads to get to this park that we found out about later. Call the park ahead of time and ask for better directions than what GPS might tell you to do. At least they let us wash our RV while we there which was nice since it had gotten so dirty on the dirt roads. - Love2Camp777

What a great little find. Small little campground, very clean, well kept, and super nice people working here. They really went out of their way when we got here. Will definitely come back again! - Summer traveler 2016
