We stayed a few days and it is a nice park with a good location. People were friendly and they had a large grass area for tents and other activities. Park is divided into two parts. One area seemed kind of tight to move around in and the other had the pull thru sites. we stayed in the pull thru sites which had a little less Cody "character" but was nice to get in and out of. I would defiantly stay here again. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

This nice park is located right in the middle of Cody and close to all the nearby attractions. It can be a tight turn-in for a big rig so you will need to swing wide into the enterance. They take cash or check only (no credit or debit cards), but they do have an ATM available in the office. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff that makes customer service their #1 priority. I needed to have a repair done to my RV and had to leave the park with it for a day while the repair was done. They gladly held my site for the time I was gone. I had a concrete pad that was level front to back and side to side. The sites are close together, but I expect that from a park in the middle of a tourist town. Some roads are asphalt and other are gravel. All roads are well maintained. Some turns maybe tight for super big rigs, but I had no problems with my 38' 5th wheel. All the hook-ups were in the proper location and worked properly except for water pressure was low. Cable was clear with a good number of channels and the wifi worked great. The dog run is small but well fenced. Weakness of this park include water pressure that varies from 35 psi to a very low 20 psi at peak use times, sites are close together, and the store only has souvenirs and no camping supplies. I would gladly stay here again. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you need repairs on the road, contact Park County RV. Very professional and courteous service. Close to all the attractions, shopping, and restaurants most of which are within a mile walking distance. They sell tickets in the store for the Night Rodeo, Mustang Tours, rafting, and other attractions.

This park has a great location, next to the city park, with great walkways and bike paths and a big lake. Not part of the campground but a real asset, and only 2 miles from downtown. The sites at the park, however, are very tight together. Sewer lines from the site next door are in your tiny area. There is lots of shade from mature trees and the management is very helpful. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has a central location in Cody, convenient to everything. Check in was easy however credit cards are not accepted, only cash or checks. There is a large gift store with a few camping essentials plus Walmart and Albertsons are not far. Dog walking is fairly easy. There is no enclosed dog area. Tent camping is available. There are even several big tipi's to use. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 5 days. Over all this park was good, close parked. Park is 30 years old and only accepts cash and checks. Lots offer some shade. Site surface is gravel, dirt and features a picnic table. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great campground, within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of downtown Cody. There are many different types of sites, so be clear what you are reserving/getting. Some are fabulous pull-through, while others are really just a parking space. Most sites have an average amount of space between them, but we were right up against our neighbor on one side and no extra room anywhere. The site was very level, though, which is always appreciated! Overall, the campground is great, but our site was not the best. The laundry room is large and reasonably priced. Wifi and cell service (AT&T) were good. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

It is a great location for the Fourth of July weekend - we could walk downtown for the parade and were able to watch the fireworks from the back of the campground. You can also get the trolley tour or rodeo bus from the campground, if desired. The RV Wash was $2/foot and they did a great job!

This park is very clean and the facilities are convenient and nice, it has been here a long time and shows by having only back in sites with the utilities at the back the sites are to short by modern standards but that aside the park is very well managed and convenient to attractions in Cody We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall our site was good. I wouldn't want some of the other sites as RVs are stacked on each other. The electric pedestal was on the opposite side than the water hookup and sewer was behind the trailer. When you make reservations ask which sites have 50 amp. Not all do. Laundry room was clean; $2 for wash, $1.50 for 30 min dry. The property does need some upkeep on the trees and shrubs. Some tree limbs are hanging down onto the tops of trailers and some trees hit the back of trailers. The dead branches need to be pruned out as well. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We visited the Heart Mountain Japanese Internment Camp memorial located off of Hwy 14 towards Powell. Very well done museum. A good reminder that we ought not repeat that type of history again.

People were very helpful. They worked me in a second night even though the campground was "full." The campground itself was a little tight for a big rig. We got around but had to pay close attention. Wi-Fi was poor. No two ways about it. Ponderosa is in a very convenient spot for Cody and Cody is well worth visiting. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Old Town was very enjoyable. Allow plenty of time for the Buffalo Bill museum. We did it all in one trip and it was great but overwhelming.

We stayed here a week to re-stock supplies and catch up on chores after 2 weeks visiting Grand Teton and Yellowstone. There's quite a variety of sites: from gravel or concrete back-ins with trees, to parking-lot style sites (yellow lines painted on asphalt) for some smaller RVs, to long gravel pull-throughs in a different section with no trees. Our back-in site right along the highway was level, and while we had a small grassy lawn between us and our neighbor, the sites were pretty close together. The highway noise was worse than we expected. Lots of loud trucks, loud cars, and loud motorcycles going by all day long.

The campground WiFi worked surprisingly well, which was good since even with our booster AT&T was unusably slow all day and Verizon had only two bars and was very slow in the evenings. There's a steep road down to the tent area near the river and we walked with our dog there a couple times, but otherwise didn't find anyplace good nearby for longer walks. We found the Cody dog park a couple miles away which had a large fenced park with lake access so we ended up going there on several evenings (local folks show up around 5:30pm). This is a good place for a night or two on the way in or out of Yellowstone and we'd certainly stay here again for that purpose, but probably wouldn't stay a week next time. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

We pulled in late on a Sunday and there were plenty of spots. At the office it says on a sign on the door to come on back in the morning to pay. The office is a large log building, very attractive in its own right. Seemed

like a down to earth folksy place.

We set up in a pull thru site and as we were setting up my husband said

he thought some one had driven by

and marked that we were there.

We had full hookups at Ponderosa and there was a cable hookup but we

don't watch TV while travelling, perhaps in the future. It is right in

town and convenient to businesses.

We had to leave fairly early the next morning but later than 9 a.m. so we could swing by the office. When we opened the door to our rv the next morning we found a note saying

Howdy please stop by the office. When my husband got in the office

he found that they already had our license plate number. So much for the folksiness and suggesting they trust people to stop by the office and pay. They don't.

Our site was near the dumpsters and there was 2 trucks there early the next morning. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Very close campsites. The 1st one I was assigned was much too small for my 5th wheel, so they gave me one I recommended to them that would accommodate us. Washers and dryers were $2.00 for washer and $1.75 for dryer. Close accommodations for campers. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
