Uneven, non-level sites separated by scraggly, barely alive crab grass. Sites do offer a fair amount of space between though if we had a neighbor we would have had to watch closely that our slide/awning didn't collide. Was chastised for getting the PA discount because the owner had apparently told some but not all that he wasn't offering it. Give him credit though as he kept with the quoted prices and honored the PA discount. Got to also say the folks that work here are simply outstanding, making the park. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Recommend spending a little more and trying to grab a site where there is some shade. In the summer the sun can be brutal at this altitude.

This is really a nice park. Well laid out, very level sites with plenty of space between sites. Folks were helpful setting up. Only ran into one problem- and that was they seem to be having a few glitches with their power company or circuit breakers which kicked off every day once a day. But they fixed it immediately. Voltage was very good as I checked it frequently. They are working on getting this fixed. Just an outstanding RV park (no amenities except for a handy laundromat on site) and its a bit away from anything. The views are stunning! Would have rated higher if power had been OK. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center was a pleasant surprise. It's a well maintained non-profit great for kids and animal lovers.

The small market in Island Park was pretty good... fresh produce, decent selection and prices.

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. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for visiting Yellowstone NP and several state parks. Natural setting. The RV park is surrounded by mountains and a lake. Sites are very spacious. Friendly staff. Very affordable monthly rate of $500. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

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!!! We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I wish I had read the reviews before making the reservation. The office is a laundry mat. The woman in the office is the worst part of the entire park. She appears to be a miserable. unhelpful. nasty person. I got very sick after 9 days and we had to leave for home before our 14 nights that we had reserved. They collect payment on arrival by check or cash and give NO REFUNDS. It's not like they lost anything - they had our spot filled the day after we left. You could not sit out at all while there because of the biting flies and mosquitoes. There were no amenities, no pool, no cable, and very spotty Wi-Fi. I would never go back there and would never recommend the place to anyone, We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a sad start to a long awaited trip. We were meeting family here from Canada and this seemed to be a great central location. Worst 2 days of our trip.

If you are traveling with kids, stay far from here. The park is mostly filled with long term, grouchy older residents that have somehow forgotten that the world does not revolve around them.

The park has pages of ridiculous rules including no door mats, telling you to water your own area, and if you dont, plan on them getting your items wet. You have to pay for a bathroom key . My wife was told she was talking too loudly to my grandson at 9:30 AM. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Words cannot explain how awful this place is. We had reservations, drove almost 6 hours to get there and what a junkyard. Started with the owner at checkin (their office is in the laundromat). She was beyond rude and just miserable. I even asked her why she was having such a bad day, her answer was simply "because." Ok. Was very upset about our Passport America discount and really did not want to honor it. So we finally get done with Ms. Personality and head to our site. Absolute junkyard to one side of us and looking directly at the back of a huge block building in front of us. Junkyard might even be too generous. Literally several stripped down old mobile homes, broken down pieces of equipment and cars. Perhaps they should invest in fencing??? Forget the beautiful pictures on their website. Not at all like that. You also have to pay 5.00 for key to men's room and 5.00 for woman's bathroom. Have never heard of anything like this. Guess they are worried that random people from off the street will sneak in and use their dumpy place. They also only accept checks and cash. We got our check back and left immediately . We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Checked in on a Sunday, cash or checks only never informed of this when reservation was made. Cleaned my own stall to shower on Monday sign says cleaned daily and so I thought because of everyone leaving from holiday heavy use and so reason for filth. Next morning same filth and so talked with office staff who stated "at least you have hot water and the restrooms are warm. I'll go over and check on them it's been a few days". We never will return to this place and found right across the street the state park is cheaper, cleaner, and friendlier. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Plan on dead grass and loud traffic noise from the interstate 24/7. This is another reason we will stay at the state park away from the interstate and next to one of the best fishing holes in Idaho.

Since we were coming from the south on US20 from ID, we decided to stay here rather than West Yellowstone. This is an open, rather basic park. Cost is high and cash or check only. I've seen plenty of laundry facilities in an RV park office, but this the first time I've seen an RV park check in counter in a corner of a 40 machine laundromat We had a somewhat bumpy, gravel, FHU, pull-through site. Previous reviewer from June, 2015 is right about the awkward water and sewer hook ups. There was no park maps, but I believe all sites are FHU pull-throughs. There is no cable, but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. Their 802.11 network was fine for our needs (e-mail and browsing) There is a large bathhouse in the middle of the park 4, 5, 6 sinks, toilets, showers in both the men's and the women's sections. There is nothing recreational in the park. There appeared to be mostly extended stay customers among the 30 sites occupied the night we were there. The property also has a gas station and a convenience store. There is a nice view of the surrounding mountains and Henry Lake is just across the road. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

We had two nights here as we traveled into and around Yellowstone. Lovely view across Lake. Huge laundry. Large games room but you had to enter via the office and go through staff area so that was odd. Staff were helpful and I'd stay again. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spent 3 nights here, it is an average park in beautiful Island Park. The interior roads and the sites are fairly well maintained gravel. The utilities were a little unusual, the faucet was down inside a concrete pipe that made it difficult to get my dual outlet connector and hose connected. The sewer connection came out of the ground at a sharp angle that would put a sharp bend in your drain hose at the elbow fitting. One end of the campground appeared to be mostly long term residents. But I would stay here again. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.
