$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 is a nice little state park on the side of a hill, surrounded by views of the mountains and right next to the lake. We made reservations but when we arrived we found the campground more than half empty, which surprised us. We did have very smokey air for one day due to the fires in the area so that may be why. Our site (#41) was very level, with a picnic table and a fire pit. The sites are small gravel and the "grass" area is mostly weeds and little piles of dirt. The only trees are new little 3ft. plantings they're trying to grow so no shade for a few years to come. The wind blows almost constantly, at times almost gale force due to the location between two valleys. We kayaked on the lake and enjoyed it although the water is very silty. This is a popular spot for fishermen! Two unique features here are #1: a firewood machine! Put your money in and get a box of firewood! #2: the trash dumpster is a compactor which runs on a generator. The hosts run it a couple of times a day. The dumpster is closed 8pm - 8am and locked to prevent animals from getting in it. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

The campground is on the side of a hill overlooking the south end of Henry's Lake. The RV back-ins and pull-throughs are gravel with grass between and well spaced. A few spots close to the water have trees. The showers and bathrooms are centrally located with four shower stalls each. Henry's Lake is about 16 miles up river from Last Chance and the "holy water" fly fishing area. We were unfamiliar with the area and booked a site at the lake for four nights about a week in advance because almost all the sites were already reserved (4th of July). When we arrived in the area we found 15 different RV or campgrounds available in the 16 mile stretch, some more expensive, some less and most with vacancies. We had intended in fishing both the Henry's Fork River and the lake but the wind blew so hard, (35 MPH) on one of the days that we were stuck in camp. If we were to come back we'd look for a campground closer to Last Chance. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We pulled into this beautiful park with a 40 ft. motorhome, four slides and left after struggling to navigate a "pull thru" site that was supposed to be big rig friendly. The site was CURVED and after 45 minutes of trying to get our rig in, we gave up. The park was beautiful, however, a wonderful destination for smaller rigs. You can't beat the rate! Rating is for difficulty getting into sites which are heavily treed. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a favorite campground for fishermen (though we are not). Henry's Lake is serene and beautiful. The small park is far enough from the highway that it is quiet. There are several lakeside sites, though all of the sites have a lake view of some kind. This is one of those "nothing fancy" campgrounds that's just nice to be in.

Loved this place, despite 2 days of strong & gusty winds that really shook the camper. The view is unbeatable, and it's quiet - off the main road far enough that (even when the wind was calm) we couldn't hear it. Nice trail overseeing the lake, and for fishermen this is a prime camping spot. Friendly volunteer hosts on duty, who worked hard to keep the campground well-maintained. Bathrooms older, but very clean. Will definitely come again. Rate given includes tax. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We wanted to visit Yellowstone Park, but we were put off by the rates at the RV parks in West Yellowstone; anywhere from $35 to $65 per night. Then we found Henry's Lake State Park approx. 15 miles south of West Yellowstone. Great paved access road off of State 20. The park is located on the shores of Henrys Lake. It has large level sites with 30/50 amp and water at each site. The campground is well cared for and very clean. It is open with little shade which gives each site has a view of the lake. The dump station is conveniently located on the road into / out of the park. I would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Yellowstone Park.

This was a very nice state park with large sites. We had a beautiful lake view. Staff were nice and warned us about coyotes in the park at night. We had 50 amp. Our site was not supposed to have water, but it was close enough that if we needed it we could have connected. No sewers though, which was why I gave it a 9. It is an easy 15 mile drive at 65-70 mph to West Yellowstone. We would stay here again. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We had a great experience at this SP. Not only is it the most beautiful setting being on Henry's Lake with mountains surrounding, it is only 15 miles west of West Yellowstone and within reasonable driving distance to many other attractions like the Sawtelle Mtn drive, Mesa Falls, Quake Lake, Jackson Hole WY and the Great Tetons. It provides great hiking nearby and we enjoyed the Island Park area in general including many wildlife sightings. We were especially impressed with and enjoyed the staff and campground hosts who were so helpful and accommodating when our RV was broke down for a week waiting for a part to be shipped. We would give it a perfect 10 except we had issues with leveling on the site assigned to us. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
