This was a little higher than I would have liked but it was a nice spot. They did have septic issues which were repaired just before we arrived. That should have cleared up the issue the one reviewer had. They let me take food back to the RV when I asked. I did not ask until just before they closed the breakfast. I did not have any issues but we were after the close of the major RV season there were only about 10 rigs in the park. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just west of Cody do not forget to locate and go to Old Trail Town, Buffalo Bills Center, Erma's Hotel gunfight in the street and accross the street from that finish the evening with the Dan Miller show.

We stayed here 4 years ago and decided to try it again because we wanted access to a pool in the 90F weather. Unfortunately, by the time we got set up and over to the pool, storm clouds began coming over the mountains from the west. We were here one weeknight in mid-August and had a level, gravel, full hookup site with a decent Wi-Fi network connection. There is now cable but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The sites near the lodge are full hookups but about 25 of the sites on the east end of the park are just W&E. The bathrooms (6 or 7 individual toilet, sink, shower rooms in a building in the center of the park) and laundry (in a building next to the bathroom building) facilities were OK but reeked of sewer stench. You could smell it as soon as you were within 20' (or more if you were downwind) of the buildings. After getting bad food last time, we didn't bother with the restaurant for dinner. The breakfast buffet is OK. As another reviewer mentioned, they no linger accept Passport America. This park is not worth $55 a night. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The amenities that they advertised online about were far and in between. We stayed there because it was close to YSNP, 32 miles to east entrance. The RV park does have wide open areas and good pull throughs. Their internet was slow. They advertise karaoke on Thursday nights but no one was there. The place is for sale. They don't honor PA but they did honor GS. If we are in this area again we won't stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy access, level sites, friendly and helpful staff. Good clean and working amenities. My only real issue was no soap in the rest rooms. A bit on the expensive side but we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Gravel and no shade as everyone else has stated, therefore dusty. Park is close to Buffalo Bill Reservoir and Dam, but quite a bit west of Cody and east of Yellowstone. Cost is total with tax and any discount they applied--in my view this is expensive for a park without a cement pad. Tight and short space to back in for our 3 day stay when there were many vacant pull through spaces which were not offered. Has a decent restaurant and store. Restrooms clean, but could be disinfected. Pool is nice. View is lovely. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects Passport America. All gravel park and dusty. Did not get sewer hook up with the P.A. membership. They have an on site dump station. Park was only 25% full. Staff was friendly and accommodating. No trees for shade and the wind blew all the time. The laundry room was ok. The Wi-Fi isn't the best in town (very weak). It's quite a drive to both Yellowstone and Cody. We use this park to refresh and stock up while dry camping in the area and for that reason we will stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is all gravel with no shade. The scenery is beautiful. We had a full hook up. The Wi-Fi was adequate. The campground is 18 miles from Cody and 30 miles from the east entrance of Yellowstone. It is in a good spot for access to both. It was very quiet. The grounds are well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only negative that I have is the lack of cable, which would have been nice. We only got 3 TV stations with our antenna. One was NBC and the other 2 were PBS. Other then that, we have no complaints. We would stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park has all pull through gravel sites, no trees, no cable, 2 stations on antenna. This is a nice park for overnight stay on the way to Yellowstone. Verizon and Wi-Fi were good. This is a very quiet park. Sites are all gravel, but wider than most parks and each site has a picnic table. Decent laundry at $1.50 each wash/dry. We stayed on Passport rate of $25.00/night for water/electric. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We booked a 4 day stay, but could only stay 3 days. RV Park refused to credit us the one day even with the 36 hr notice we gave them. The older lady at the desk said DIDN’T you read the contract you signed? NO REFUNDS… The man we talked to when we booked was very nice and said when we checked in they would be glad to fill us in on all the best places to go. When we checked in the older lady at the counter took our credit card, but when we asked about attractions she said we would have to come back when she wasn’t so busy. (there was only one other customer in line ) She had us stand aside and she started answering his questions?? There were other problems, as well. Two of the toilet/showers had no toilet paper and one of them was clogged with dirty toilet paper the whole time we were there. Another had the drain one half inch above the floor and your feet were in dirty water while on the toilet or using the shower. One and half hours of running the dryer still got us damp clothes. There are a lot of RV parks near Cody. I think we will use a different one next time. They did have a great view and the park was clean. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cody address is misleading. The park is 18 miles west of Cody. This is a gravel parking lot with hookups – no shade. Power and water good. Wi-Fi comes and goes. Verizon air card and phone had good connection. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The graveled sites are level and wide enough for slide-outs. The Shoshone River runs beside the park. It was very quiet and clean. It is the closest part on the east side of Yellowstone. It's not too far to drive into Cody either. We would stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

OK camp! Gravel/dirt sites with room to park alongside. Most are pull-through. Picnic tables at most sites. No shade. Many sites have no sewer connection but a dump site is available. $39/night is a bit high for no sewer hookup. Slow Wi-Fi. You can get a decent steak or shrimp dinner at the restaurant at the front of the property. We didn't use the hot tub or pool but noticed kids enjoying both. Pleasant views of mountains on both sides of the valley. We would, maybe, stay here again on our way into or out of Yellowstone NP. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent a week here. It is about 32 miles from Yellowstone. The staff is great and the restrooms were very clean. Sites are gravel with plenty of room. I would stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you're looking for a jumping off point to the East Gate of Yellowstone N.P. or trips to Cody, YVI is your place. If you're looking for a Campground experience, this is not it. Located behind the Yellowstone Valley Inn and cottages is their RV section. Campsites are gravel most with fire rings. No trees for shade, no dog run. Great views of the mountains and Shoshone River right along the edge of the campground. Bathroom/showers in individually doored units. Did not use swimming pool or hot tub, nor did we try the restaurant at YVI. Quiet location. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is certainly not a destination, but was fine for our purposes: to go into Yellowstone. The woman who took our reservation was not particularly accommodating and said we had to check in by 8:30 pm with no option for a later arrival. When traffic through Big Horn made our 8:30 pm arrival impossible, I called and got a much kinder person who said it was no problem. The pool was very small, but the kids did enjoy splashing around. The hot tub was fine: no chairs for around it. The view is beautiful from many of the sites on the far end of the park. We would likely try staying in Cody next time. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.
