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. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 3 nights while visiting Yellowstone and Grand Tetons NP. I would stay here again. Our site was paved but had a severe slope, rear to front about 2'. I could not level my trailer since I did not have adequate blocking. The locals brought 8" wood blocks for their tongue and front stabilizer jacks. Mosquitoes were the worse I have encountered anywhere (Alaska, Louisiana swamps, Florida Everglades, SC lowlands, etc) We could not set outside after dinner. The park is a beautiful place. A less expensive alternative for the west Yellowstone area, 20 minutes west of the park entrance. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

For the most part, I agree with previous review for the park. The mosquitos only came out at night-fall. Many of the sites are not very level. Ours (site 68), was fairly level and required very little leveling. The site was plenty long enough for a 36ft motorhome and toad. The surroundings are gorgeous - a wide mountain valley with a large lake. Had no trouble getting satellite TV. Had passable Verizon and T-Mobile signals. The price reflects the $10 ReserveAmerica fee and the $5 per day extra vehicle fee (for my toad). We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This park is on a lovely site. On the bank of Henry's Lake and sites are on a gentle slope so everyone has a view of the lake. Lots of positive aspects to this park: friendly staff, well cared for and clean, well off the highway so very quiet and only 15 miles from West Yellowstone. Also the electric power (50amp) was very strong. The drawbacks were that it was windy some of the time while here, but that did chase the mosquitoes away. When the air was calm there was a problem with the mosquitoes. So bring some spray and enjoy the lovely campground. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure and have your National Parks Pass for free entry to Yellowstone. Otherwise it is $30.00 per car.

Since we camped in 5th wheel we did not have to pay each time we left the park and returned.

The rate for full hookups is $34 per day, but with tax plus the $10 fee from Reserve America plus a $5 per day use fee for our tow vehicle, it adds up to $46 per day, and this park is not worth that to us. The surroundings are very pretty, with the lake and mountains all around. When we checked in we were handed an big bagful of fancy expensive brochures, but no good information on what to do in this park. I had to ask for a trail guide, and then the trails were poorly kept. The sites are well spaced and paved, not perfectly level but fixable. There is only one trash dump station for the whole place (not on any map they give you) and it is available only from 8 am to 7 pm! Very strange. The place is lacking walkways to protect their new grass that they've planted. This is apparently a place dedicated to fishermen. We would not come back here if we were in the area. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

There are parks closer to Yellowstone, but they cost more, pack tighter, and aren't on a lake. Sp #9 was maybe 50' from the lake and facing it. Unfortunately, they said a cabin was going there next year. #11 also had a great view but was closer to the dock. Wood and propane are available. Gas and groceries a couple miles away. 13 miles to Y-stone, 65 MPH most of the way to town. Friendly staff, neat, clean grounds, away from road noise, what more can you ask for? The newer section is not right on the lake like some spots are, but should have lake views as there is a rise in the land. A small thing, one hook in the showers. I've got a coat, clean clothes and dirty, and assorted shower stuff, and there is one hook. Also, no adjustment on the temp. A tad warm for me, perfect for my wife. Small things. Allegedly good fishing. Short nine hole close by but too high priced for me. Well worth the extra miles to Y-stone for the perfect spot on the lake. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Beautiful view from just about every site. Only one big trash receptacle but many little trash cans thru out the park for dog waste. Only draw back was the $5.00 charge for each vehicle for each day you camp. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

$35.44 per night (this included $5/day vehicle entrance fee) was for a level asphalt pad site with full hookups, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground is in a desert-like setting but has been planted with trees and each site has a grassy area making it seem not so dry. This lovely campground is located overlooking Henrys Lake. Cabins are available but there are no primitive sites. The park staff and campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. Bicycles are permitted on park roads and trails but the trails can be very bumpy. Do your shopping before arrival as stores are miles away. We used this campground as our base to visit Yellowstone National Park as it’s only 13 miles to the west entrance. AT&T cell service is fine for calls and texting with four bars Edge. We used our Milliencom jetpack for internet access as we received four bars of 4G LTE. Park Wi-Fi is available but it costs $$ after the 20 free minutes per 12 hour period. There were four OTA PBS TV stations. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

They just opened up a new section in July with some 50 amp full hookup back-in sites. We stayed in new section in a 40' motorhome. Water pressure and electric were good. Interior roads and sites were new asphalt and easy to negotiate. Restrooms and showers were very clean. We could get 3 bars on our Verizon phone and my Millenicom MiFi got 4G LTE well. The views around the lake are very nice, sunsets are pretty, there was a lot of wind each day we were there. The $34 includes the $5/day State Park entrance fee, so campsite actually cost around $29/night. We would stay here again. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here three nights and were very pleased with the facility. Water and electric at the site, and a dump station near the entrance/exit gate. We had one of the few pull-through sites, as most sites are back-ins. The camp host was very friendly, and hosts appeared good at picking up any trash left behind by sloppy campers. Great view of the lake and mountains on all sides. We don't fish, but there were quite a few fishing boats coming and going while we were there. 14 miles from the city of West Yellowstone and West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Any shopping or restaurant needs must be done in either West Yellowstone or Island Park, ID about 16 miles South. This park has a brand new, unopened camping loop with new bathhouse that appeared almost ready. These new loops offer full hook ups, but opening date is not known at this time, but I would guess very soon. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had an electric-only site, and the bath-house is very disappointing. There is only very gritty Go-Jo soap to wash your hands, and push-button (1-minute) showers. There is construction going on adjacent to the park, and the heavy equipment there starts beeping about 7 a.m. to wake you. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

The park overlooks Henrys Lake, with tall snow covered peaks as a background. There are few trees in the park. It is clean, organized and maintained. The sites, on the outer loop, are reasonably large with gravel pads. DirecTV signal from any site is no problem. Our Verizon cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were maintained, heated and clean. The showers, in the men section, have no water temperature adjustment. The water was too hot for me to use.

This park has almost everything you need. The sites are big, easy to get in and out of. Not much shade, but trees have been planted. Staff was very good and friendly. Very clean showers and restrooms. Most sites have a great lake view and the park is only 15 miles from West Yellowstone. This year there seemed to be a lot of mosquitoes, otherwise this park is a 10. We will camp here again. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.
