This is a nice park and very close to the north entrance of Yellowstone. We stayed in May before the rest of the park was open so this was convenient to visit Yellowstone. We stayed at one of the deluxe spots which is really just a regular spot in any other park. Spots were OK size, bathrooms were very nice and clean. Driveway was a little steep, but not really a problem getting in or out. We would come back here again. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is located down a rather tricky looking hill along the banks of the Yellowstone River. We did not have any trouble getting our 40 foot RV down the hill and into our space. The park seems to be well managed (in fact we were notified by phone when our mail arrived before we did). We were assigned a level, gravel, pull-through space with full hookups and a picnic table. We did have to park our towed vehicle sideways to fit it in the space. This park does not recycle. Verizon service was OK in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

The park hosts were awesome. They advertise 12 channels of TV we got 5 and so grainy/fuzzy we couldn't watch it.The host did everything to try to fix it, but nothing we did worked. Sites are narrow and dusty gravel tight turns for a big rig. Down a big hill. Verizon didn't work had to go up the hill. We paid 47.50 with AAA discount. Seemed like too much for what you get. The Wi-Fi worked ok. but lost the signal a few times. Might come back if same hosts. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Motorhome.
This is our favorite place to stay in Yellowstone. We're photographers and are in mostly the Northern Tier, so this is a great location for us. The sites are level, gravel, a few trees, with some sites on the Yellowstone River for a great view (and sound) of the river. If you're interested in a river view, call early (they start accepting reservations April 1), because employees from Yellowstone (Xanerra employees) stay here and the park fills up quickly, but it's worth it to make this effort. It's big rig friendly, pet friendly, clean bathrooms and laundry, and the caretakers make a good effort at keeping the property in good shape. The only problem I have is that the Wi-Fi is iffy at best. It's best during the day when no one is there, but since we were out mostly during the day, this made it hard to upload pictures. For a full-service park, this is your best bet in the northern part of Yellowstone. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
The river view is only available from the highway but not from your rig. Not a big plus for the price you are paying. There are small patches of grass between sites but no shade until late evening when the rig next to you provides the shade. Manager was extremely friendly and checked on us a couple times during our 3 night stay. We were in site 1 which was long enough but somewhat unlevel. We were unable to make the loop to get into the site and had to end up backing into the site. Be prepared for high water pressure, have a regulator. Wi-Fi was excellent and better than our own hotspot. Seems to be a lot of permanent residents but enough sites for short term stay. The views from road are great, close to Mammoth, Gardiner and Jardine and North loop of Yellowstone. We gave it a 9 only because price seems high for what you get.

Nice spot on the river, close to town and the north entrance to Yellowstone NP. Picnic/tent area with nice grass on the river for use even if you have a back row site. Friendly managers were very helpful. A number of these sites are leased to seasonal park workers so a call for reservations is a good idea since not all sites are available each night. Very neat, clean park. There are a number of 50 amp sites, but be prepared for 30 amp, more of those it seems. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Motorhome.

In this extremely popular area there's little competition; business will come your way regardless. That said, this is a lovely spot if you get one of the waterfront sites. Still, we were packed in like sardines even though it was off-season, September 19th. The restrooms were clean, the showers well designed, and the Wi-Fi connection was four bars. It wasn't particularly pet friendly nor could I see any amenities for children except for a single swing set. OK but hardly raves. You might consider dry camping at at one of the many beautiful public CG's nearby. It's a matter not of cost but aesthetics. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Motorhome.

The managers are very nice and helpful, this RV park is very close to the North Entrance to Yellowstone, (you can see the Arch from the park). It's very near to downtown Gardiner, within walking distance. Sites are small, close together, 30 amp. Park is very basic, CTV is poor, channels (12 of them) are on west coast time except 1 (CBS) which is on east coast time. Park is dusty when dry. The price is high for what you get, but being this close to Yellowstone NP and considering Fishing Bridge as the alternative, I guess it's about average for this area.

Wow! Got a river site and we look out and watch the osprey & eagles catch fish all day long. We're photographers, so this was an excellent site. It is .7 miles from the North Entrance to Yellowstone. Read on other reviews that Xanterra employees stay here - for me that was good recommendation, but does stay filled up, however toward end of August, begins to thin out. Friendly & helpful with hookup and sites are easy to navigate and pull into. Playground for kids, all Wi-Fi coverage (this is new). Very easy, very nice and friendly - couldn't ask more. Only reason this isn't a 10 is this is my first review. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here for six nights while visiting Yellowstone. This park is just a mile or two from the North entrance to the park and on the banks of the Yellowstone River. Very quiet as the park sits below the highway and there is not much traffic. The sites are level and gravel with good hookups and staff available almost 24/7. The Wi-Fi is passable and for the most part reaches the entire park. Two restroom and shower buildings. Very clean and maintained, lots of hot water. Laundry facilities in each building. The park has many full time residents as they contract with some of the vendors in the park for employees. Great location, just a short walk to town and if you wanted right into Yellowstone. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at this park several times before, but it has become a private park for Xanterra employees with only 8 sites available for the public. The public sites are out of range for the WiFi and there are trees that block the use of one's own satellite internet system. We asked for a better site but that request was denied even though there were empty sites available. We drove in and right back out again, and won't be back. Too bad! The only saving grace for this dirt pile was backing in on the river. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nothing special, but a great location to visit Yellowstone and have full hookups at your campsite. There is decent space between sites but sites are somewhat short in length. There is no easy view of the river. The river is down about a 30 foot steep embankment. Don’t expect a river view or river access. Free but very weak, unreliable, and intermittent WiFi through Tengo internet. Off network connection with AT&T. We would stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Motorhome.
Great park. Very satisfied. It was acceptable to stay outside Yellowstone Park. Gardiner has everything you need, including casinos. The park was well maintained, clean and friendly. Would stay here again. It was a good laugh to see the bear warning signs; highly unlikely. Wi-Fi is limited to proximity of the single transmitter. River is not accessible to you. Unless you're a mountain goat. Spots are too close together. Gravel road and spots. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This little campground is right on the banks of the Yellowstone River. We had a back in site and could put our chairs in the grass on the banks of the rushing river. There are no amenities, but we didn't need them, as we were interested in touring Yellowstone National Park which is about 20 minutes away. The owners were very friendly as were the other RV'ers, many of whom were there for the summer, working at Yellowstone. This is a convenient spot if you don't want to stay in the park. We would return. We camped at Yellowstone RV Park in a Motorhome.
