There are 3 or 4 other campgrounds in Cody...maybe a bit cheaper, but this one is the roomiest, and it's just out of town. A lot less busy and less noisy. It's not a beautiful campground, but more than adequate.
Besides, they have free pancakes each morning from 7-9 am. Everything else is extra.
We made the right choice staying here. It's close to most everything you want to see, and there's a lot to see in Cody. Think Buffalo Bill Cody.
A couple of extra dollars will get you one of the super sized pull throughs. We camped at Cody KOA in a Motorhome.

Very Basic Park. Way overpriced! Listed Wi-Fi available but could not hook up! We had no sewer though there were empty sites with sewer hookups. Spot had gravel pad but was not completely covered. Refused normal Good Sam, and ALL other discounts. Never Again! We camped at Cody KOA in a Motorhome.

Hello. We paid a premium due to making a reservation at the last minute so all they had available was a large, gravel site with an extended concrete patio with patio furniture. The site was a pull-thru, level, and very roomy. It was directly across from the very nice enclosed dog play area. They did not escort us to our site but they were friendly at check-in. No shade trees to speak of. Great location just an hour outside of Yellowstone. Our memory is failing us as to whether the WiFi worked well but we're pretty sure it did. The showers and restrooms were clean. We did not use the laundry. They offered a free pancake breakfast in the morning which was nice. We recommend this KOA.

This is a decent KOA with a lot of amenities, we've stayed here before. It gets windy so you can't leave your awning out for very long. The spaces are very close and there's no privacy. It's dusty and dirty so prepare. Dog friendly with a small fenced area for off leash time. It's just outside of Cody, about 5 minutes to downtown. We camped at Cody KOA in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one night on our trip to Yellowstone. This is a hard place to rate. It is expensive for what you get, but you are in a prime tourist area in high season with not a lot of choices. Our site was a fairly tight pull through. It was not even remotely level and had a large mud puddle from what appeared to be a leaking underground water line. I don't think our site had seen new gravel in years and overall the campground seemed kind of run down. That being said, our kids went straight to the jumping pillow and pool and thoroughly enjoyed them. We camped at Cody KOA in a Travel Trailer.
Rating was based on "resort pricing" when it is not a resort. It is a campground in a great area. We were coming from Grand Canyon. It's an OK KOA on highway into Cody from the east. Our site was near the highway, the road noise was not too bad. Most sites are not shaded. Great place if you have kids, a lot of things for them to do, good playground and nice pool and hot tub. Our fire pit, however, was filled with dirt and large rocks. I think KOAs are overpriced for what you get and are so much more expensive than other campgrounds, it's only worth the price if you're going to use all the amenities. Only would come back if nothing else available. We camped at Cody KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

I really liked this park, we stopped over for the night on the way to Yellowstone. It's quite expensive for what you get, but oh well. Park is located just east of town, roads are gravel but each site has a grass patch. Check in was good, office folks friendly. Our spot was a large pull through with concrete patio with metal furniture under a huge cotton wood tree, very nice. Utilities worked good, Wi-Fi was good, cable was good. They have a very nice pool and hot tub area with life size chess board and pieces, jump pillow and a huge play ground. Free pancakes every morning and free bus ride to Cody rodeo every night. We will stay here again. We camped at Cody KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Difficult to rate. Pluses: Long pull throughs, so you do not need to unhook. GREAT Wi-Fi which allowed us to get a great deal of work done while here for 6 nights. Hook ups flawless. In the outskirts of town, but still minutes from all that Cody has to offer -and that is a great deal. One of our more favorite stops ever!! Minusses: The staff seemed put out to do things. You didn't feel like a customer, especially paying $72.00 a night with the Good Sam discount. I really cannot imagine how they justify a resort rate when it doesn't come close to many of the real resort "Class A" only type resorts we have stayed in across the country. Branches dragged across the roof of our coach upon entry! Person who led us to the site said maintenance people would be told, but usually don't get around to those kinds of things! Wow! We saw more teenagers on golf carts moving about to do work. Campground just seemed dirty to us. We wrote to corporate and they did respond saying that they would address our complaints/concerns. Hope it happens because we would not stay here again. There are other choices that looked pretty good. But this is a place that shouldn't be missed, especially the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum. It is really well done and very interesting. We were here for the Pow Wow and it did not disappoint. We camped at Cody KOA in a Motorhome.
Spaces are tight. Not much grass but what can you expect in Wyoming in the summer? They have free pancakes every morning. There is a bus directly from the campground to the rodeo, and you can purchase your tickets at the campground. Clean restrooms. Good place. We camped at Cody KOA in a Motorhome.
We were lucky to get into this park because of the big rally in Gillette, but they were great at working us in and wiggled us into a water & elec only. It worked just fine. Nice campground and really nice people. Cute little store too. Free WiFi. Free pancake breakfast every morning & then you could purchase (for very little) coffee, sausage, etc to go with. Nice. We asked about the drive from there to Buffalo WY, since there was two ways to go and was given some great advise from the owners, which really saved our brakes and nerves!

I have mixed feelings about this campground. It was fine as far as utilities go (amps and water), but it did seem a little run down. For example, there were weeds growing up through the gravel everywhere. Also, most of the sites were very close together. We stayed in a premium site, which is larger than the others, and I am glad we did. That said, the other campgrounds in the area are tightly spaced as well, and are closer to the main road. This KOA campground at least has a buffer, provided by the swimming pool, between the highway and the sites. It seems that during the summer there are many activities - trail rides, swimming, breakfasts, and so on. These were all closed for the season when we stayed here. I like that the campground feels like it is out in the country rather than in town. We camped at Cody KOA in a Motorhome.

We heavily utilized this KOA including the shuttle back and forth to the Cody Night Rodeo, pancake breakfast, laundry facility, store, pool, and hot tub. It is gravelly and dusty to be sure, but it is a very accommodating place. We camped at Cody KOA in a Motorhome.

We were greeted by a friendly hostess. Showers and restrooms were clean. Playground and equipment for kids looked fun. Pool looked clean, but we didn't have a chance to use. They had a free pancake breakfast; looked good, but we didn't participate. Gravel roads and pads. It was very dusty, but it has been a very dry year. Site we had was not very level. We only spent one night. Don't think I would stay more than one night. We camped at Cody KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
Overpriced, dirty, wi-fi sometimes, welcome staff not friendly but not unfriendly. I didn't feel they were happy to see me. My site was just like the premium sites. My site is muddy covered with trash all over to include cigarette butts, bottle caps, dog excrement on the corner. I will not come back to this park. And they have the audacity to charge a resort fee. There's no grass at almost all the sites. A resort fee, give me a break. We camped at Cody KOA in a Travel Trailer.
