12 Parks near Cody, Wyoming
Aug 2016 - $33.00
As stated by others the sites are very tight. Our sewer hook up was closer to our neighbor's RV than ours. Site is just long enough for rig (32"), forget the tow vehicle. Nearly everyone had to park parallel on the street. Wifi was only fair. Easy satellite setup. Friendly staff. Not overpriced. Might stay here again. - vmi1962

Tight but close to down. A bit of highway noise but not bad. Pet area a bit far away. Would stay again. - DCM2015

The park is nice but the sites are way too small and close together. This is the reason for the poor rating. When you leave you have to get your neighbors to move their vehicles so you can get out or your site without hitting them. We all are parallel parking in front of our rigs. The lady that checked us in was very helpful with giving directions to shopping, attractions and other things of interest you might want or need. I would stay here again if visiting the East side of Yellowstone and the Cody area. - Jack&Wanda

Why were there no warning signs as to risk of high wind conditions in the night? My tents were broken in the wind, and we had to spend the night in our car. There is a wind break wall for the tent area table, but no wind break available for your tent. Tent at your own risk. This was the worst experience on my vacation. (Aug 18, 2016). No showers. The only running water is from a pump handle; clean water? No camp host available. For the misery I endured, this was overpriced at $17. - Ken W

This park is on a beautiful lake with mountains around it. All the sites view the lake. This is the North Shore campground and there are 3 loops, 1 with electric--the others are dry camping. The 6 tent-only sites are awesome, with privacy fences. There are small trees but no real shade. It's so windy that it stays cool. I would have given it a 10 if there were more electric sites. All sites are pull-through. The town of Cody is very special. I would strongly suggest visiting here. The ride from Yellowstone was gorgeous. - Tim and Susan from NC

Campsites on the lake at North Shore Bay are a 10 for the views (this assumes you know that only one loop has electric and water and the other 1st come 1st serve loops have no hook-ups). If you don't have a campsite with a great view, the campground is an 8 or 9 overall.
Pros: Large sites. Convenient to Cody and on the way to Yellowstone. Very clean vault toilets. Great views.
Cons: The road to Yellowstone creates road noise (not awful). No shower facility. A bit windy in the afternoon and early evenings as storms come off Yellowstone. If you are on the inside of the loop your door will face out to the loop road (loops are pretty short so there is not to much traffic.
$26.00 reflects: water, electric, state park fee, online fee, out of state. - rockwood tt family

If I had not been here before, I would have felt very misled by some of the recent reviews. I guess the problem is that this site asks reviewers to describe their specific site. Since most parks have a variety of sites, only describing their site can be very misleading. If you have a site in the new section, you will have a long pull through with well located utilities, and an open sky for satellite reception. The majority of sites, however, are in the older section and are mostly back in, very tight, and heavily treed. The bath and laundry facilities are OK. I did not use the cable and the WIFI was off and on during our stay. I saw no recycling. For me, the open sites rate a 7, but the older sites only rate a 5. - Jerry S

Busy place, a little close quarters.
Overall a nice place to stay. Very friendly helpful staff. - Edlarue

This is the best RV park in Cody. It is conveniently located near the museum and within walking distance of restaurants and shops and the hospital. Walmart is about a mile away. Great access to all tourist sights. The layout of the park is compact with very nice sites along the back row, tight sites in the middle. Trash but no recycling. Water, cable were fine. Sewer connections could be at the back needing 25 feet of hose...they sell additional sewer hose in the office. Our electrical kept spiking on one leg losing half the circuits but that could be weather related. Office personnel are knowledgeable and very nice. Very good store. The spinkler system kept being moved so our entryway was always muddy. - Solem8s

We stayed a total of four nights at this park in a 39 foot fifth wheel. The campground is small. There are a number of permanent mobile homes around the perimeter of the property that, if I am honest, stop this from rating higher. Having said that, we visited other campgrounds in the area and would choose this one again. The others lacked character and had a storage facility feel about them.
The location is excellent with a Walmart almost directly opposite and a great restaurant next door (Cassie's). The owner was very friendly and is obviously proud of his business. Facilities were clean. Washer and drier a bit on the pricey side.
The site was a pull through and was level. Decent space between sites.
Convenient to YNP.
I will return if I am in the area again. - Bill and Jen

Arrived without reservations, staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of RV's in town and all campgrounds were full. Met our needs for an overnight stop after leaving Yellowstone NP. Would stay again if passing through the area. Not a destination campground. Good water pressure, open for satellite reception, did not try OTA. , and no cable. - dfc

Cash or check only. Owner was friendly and helpful, the site mostly level gravel with grass buffer between sites. Neighboring site had three pipeline workers staying and one parked his noisy pickup almost at my front door, then came in late and left early in the AM. The major issue is power stanchion at site 18. My EMS constantly battled to maintain but lost the connection permanently the last night we were here to very high voltage, an open ground, and at the loss of our micro-wave unit. I had shown the owner the problem during the previous day and he replied that he has tried to get an electrician to come in for repairs but it has been months and he is still waiting. No effort was made to either put us in another site (CG was full every night) or try to repair the problem. Fortunately for us the only loss was the micro-wave with a huge white flash. I fully disconnected from shore power after the surge the last night and didn't try to reconnect before moving on. The CG is convenient to downtown Cody and great places to eat, museums and historical sites. When the electrical problem is repaired, the CG will rate higher and we would gladly return. - SilverBear

This park is a gem if you are looking for something close to Yellowstone (the address is Cody, WY, but the park is actually 3 miles from the east entrance), but there are no hookups. The park can accommodate large rigs, and there are some pull through sites, and a couple of sites right on the river. Our site was fairly level. The scenery is awesome. We would stay here again. - Haggbloom

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Cody. The management and staff were very nice and helpful. Our site was reasonably level. Wi-Fi was available, but in and out. We soon disconnected and used Verizon, which was strong. After looking at the other parks in Cody from a street view, we would still pick this park over what we observed in the city. The downside to us was that the park is in full sun with no shade. All hookups worked well with no problems. We would recommend this park for a short stay while passing through town. - Hiker Hap

Small, new campground on the river. Called a few miles out to park a 38 foot motorhome with a 24 foot trailer. Very accomodating! Hung out, a little but not bad, for one night. A little tight for big rigs with the rocks and landscaping. Nice fishing on the river, I hear! The bathrooms are just like home! They are individual bathrooms with toilet, sink and shower!
Campsites are all gravel and include a picnic table.
We were able to take our motorcycles out and tour Cody before moving on to Yellowstone.
We were pleased with our short stay! - Umbrella

We came to Cody and originally stayed in a true gravel parking lot closer to Yellowstone. Once we saw this ad in the local visitors guide, we called and moved here. I'm so glad they had space for us! The restrooms were very clean, the wifi was amazing, and the spots were new. We did catch and release trout (with all the equipment provided by the park) from their pond. There was a small playground for the kids and a tree swing too. For our 40ft RV we were able to move around the lot relatively easy. We did see a couple fifth wheels take a tricky corner with a little more cautious though. If we ever make our way back here, this will be our place to stay! Did I mention the wifi? We were both able to use two laptops and two iPads all streaming at the same time. - CDPTravelers

We pulled into the park near dark. the young lady said the park was full but they did have an overflow area.
So we dry camped. We did get to use our generator.
They had free pancake breakfast the next morning so that was a plus.
The biggest negative I had was the teenagers that work there were all bickering with each other. We could have done without that. - SubVet SSBN619

Way overpriced for what you get. $75 a night for a side by side narrow pull through. Also the utilities are oddly placed requiring long hoses and electric cable. You have to share the patio space with the people in the site next to you. The sites are all gravel with some large shade trees in between. Road noise could be bothersome. Also there was no one to lead you to your site like all other KOA's just follow their confusing map. - lllkrob

For a KOA we were disappointed. Check-in staff were friendly, but not knowledgeable about area attractions. I asked about trail rides and was handed a brochure for a ranch 55 miles away! I asked about the place RIGHT NEXT DOOR and she just shrugged and said we could walk over and inquire there! Turns out, they are a part of the ranch 55 miles away, but we were supposed to sign up at the KOA office! Park is very open, gravel and some grass, which looked like it wasn't mowed for weeks. Lots of junk all along the back edge of the park. Lots of workers in yellow shirts, but never saw anyone mowing! Our site was fairly level, but grass in some spots was over 8 inches tall! Lots of bare spots which means mud with any showers, or just the dripping from you AC. We had to pay a $5.00 "resort fee". When asked what that was for, we were told "Well, we serve free pancakes every morning". Guess the pancakes really weren't free! Pool area was nice, but I suspect they allow outsiders to use the pool- lots of cars coming into the parking lot next to the pool. Trust me, this park is not big enough to require driving to the pool if you are staying here. Lots of one night RVs. It says in brochure they are only 50 miles to east entrance to Yellowstone, which is true, but then you have another 37 miles of mountain to climb to get to the sites of Yellowstone! Very steep ride, 11,333 feet of elevation. Not for the faint heart. This KOA could really use some sprucing up and better maintenance of the sites. Fire pits were in disrepair and overgrown with weeds. We got good satellite, our neighbor could not get his cable to work. Wi-Fi was horrible. Would probably not stay here again. - KSAM14

Decided to do a last minute trip to Yellowstone, during prime visiting time, and this was the only place that has availability for our dates. Yes, it's a gravel parking lot with no charm whatsoever, but we didn't hang around our RV except to sleep in it. It's a great location between Cody and Yellowstone, if that's what you're looking for. We didn't use any amenities, but visually that playground for the kids has definitely seen some better days. Also, they have the worst wifi we have encountered in a long time. But like I said, we only parked our RV here to sleep in, and left all day. - CDPTravelers

I don't know if the park cleaned the showers and toilet facilities daily or not but they needed cleaning both days we were there. The park is just gravel, no trees but lots of room between campsites.
Some campers left things behind and 2 days later they were still there. Someone really needs to checks the sites after campers leave. - SubVet SSBN619

Very nice setting the grounds are gravel and fairly level. Spaced nicely. There is no enclosed pet runs. The employees were great and service was spot on. Very dusty and windy. - mcomeaux

Ten RV parking sites on gravel. Full hook-up. No cable. Two tv channels over the air. No picnic table. Tight for big rigs. No amenities. No pool.
Beautiful view! No playground. Small laundromat with three washers and three dryers. Locked/combination to access the restrooms (often a challenge). Motel on site. Small food trailer for breakfast. About 25 miles from Cody, then 30 more miles to Yellowstone East Gate.
OK for a base. You won't want to spend a lot of time here.
This is a parking place, not really a campground. One site, (10) is on the road with a little grass (not on the campsite, but in view) and has the best view, although a little noise from the road.
Most people did not stay long. - Umbrella

This is more of a parking lot at a motel. Close to park. The little store next-door was great. . Unfortunately the owner is a jerk I should not be in the hospitality business. - RWHooper

I was leery in staying here after reading the previous reviews. The laundry room, restrooms, and showers were very clean, My congrats to the staff. A concession stand by the office had good eats at reasonable prices. Wi-Fi was great, but there are no cable or air TV channels. The RV park is nine sites in a line on the west side of the property. Tow vehicle parking can be difficult, but not impossible. The pet area are on the west and south sides and is limited. I walked across the highway to Road 6Cu, a gravel road that proceeded north for a mile and ends at a WY Anglers Access to the Shoshone River. Mentioned in a previous review was a structure that 'looms' over the RV park. The Smith Mansion didn't bother us at all. As far as all the banter about the owner, we used this as a base camp to Yellowstone. Out early, in late and never experienced any problems with the owner. One warning. The office is closed from 12 pm - 2pm. Show up in between and prepare to sit in the driveway and wait. - The Wandering Berries

Older park. Poor sewer hookups, gravel sites. Laundry but dryers had only one out of four working, and it had only low heat so the $1.50 to dry a load turned into $4.50. - fgalend
