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. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Truck Camper.

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. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

I was told it was close to Yellowstone Park but coming in from East side it was a travel. I would have preferred staying on West entrance after exploring. The restaurant at camp ground has great food offerings. The river really has no access to it steep bank.

Ron, owner at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park responded to this review

Thanks for staying with us. We are the closest full serve RV park to the east entrance and by staying on this side of the park there is so much more to do and see. A trip to this area isn't just about Yellowstone. The best day trip in this area is north from Cody 16 mi then west 42 mi toward the NE entrance to Yellowstone on Chief Joseph Scenic Hwy and then right over the Beartooth Mtns to Red Lodge, Montana. the highway winds around right over the 12000' peak. Absolutely the best day trip out here. About 5 hrs going and 1 1/2 hrs to get home with no mtns to drive over on the return trip. Also Cody Wy lists 53 things to do in Cody on the chamber site including the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum. The number rated western museum in the world and Old Trail Town and the Cody Trolley. We think this is the best side to stay on for sure!

We stayed in 1st week of September- a lot of empty spaces. Rate of $24 was with Passport America- for Water/Electric; but there is a $5 charge for Dump Station. Restroom/showers were smaller, but clean and decent. The washers/dryers required $2 each. Sites were gravel and level; bar and restaurant on the property; morning buffet breakfast was basic and adequate for the price; appears as all sites are pull-through and easy to get into and out of. We would stay here again if passing through. In talking with several other visitors, it seems they keep the full hook-up for longer term visitors- attempting to keep the one nighters from coming in and dumping full holding tanks and creating problems for the septic system; makes sense.... We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Having stayed in several RV parks in our travels from the Carolina's to Yellowstone I must say this place is a great stop!!! Low humidity and temps in the 70's. A bit windy but it's Wyoming. The view's were Amazing like waking up to a post card every morning. Lots of wildlife nearby. We seen a large elk herd just down the road on our way into town.

Our site was level and clean. We bought propane at a great price and used the shower house many times. It was very clean and water was hot. I liked having the extra security locks on the shower house door for my wife and kids. The laundry was clean an priced in reason. We ate at the restaurant and were impressed by the food. And the staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar was awesome. We played pool and sang karaoke.

Great place !! Great value. We will definitely recommend to any one. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We wanted to be close to the park and didn't want the longer drive from Cody. This was as it turns out to be the best choice. The views were awesome, Wapiti valley is amazing, saw a herd of Elk by the road.

The laundry and bathrooms were fine, the kids had a great time in the pool. After a long hike the wife and I enjoyed the hot tub very much.

Unlike a lot of parks, here there is a bar and very good restaurant. We needed to dump so the guys come and pumped our tanks for $15. which we thought was reasonable, do it yourself $5. Everyone we met was nice to us, enjoyed our stay. Makes a good base camp to explore the park. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed for three nights the weather was pleasant and staff were polite and courteous, took advantage of staff recommendations and went over blue tooth pass off of chief Joseph highway ,it was fabulous ,but would only do it in our pull behind as recommended . We enjoyed the bar and was welcomed by Courtney and her husband Friday evening it was great. The karooke was on Friday and Saturday and we had a great time watching some of the staff sing . The view around the rv park was astonishing. I would recommend the park anytime.when we come back thru from Ohio again next year we plan to stay again and see more of Cody.

I will say that we were impressed with two staff members who came to our rescue. It turned out some one put depends in the septic system and clogged all of us up. We felt sorry for the older gentleman he looked quite discouraged until the obstructions were removed. He apologized to each of the campers for the inconvienance and for the couple that put the obstructions in there system shame on u

The location is about the closest RV park you can get to the east side of Yellowstone. It was overpriced for a gravel parking lot. They did have a pool and a restaurant. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

If going to Cody, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West is worth the drive, a great museum. If going to Yellowstone there is a super cheap gas station a few miles closer to the park.

Ron, owner at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park responded to this review

We are the closest RV park to the east gate of Yellowstone. We get visited by the Good Sam reps every year and every year they tell us we're just not charging enough when compared to all the RV parks around Yellowstone so we've been adjusting our prices accordingly and every year all sites around Yellowstone are pretty much booked solid from early June to Labor day. We just spent over $150,000 on a new state of the art denitrification drip irrigation sewer system to convert our last 35 water and electric sites to full service so that all of our 60 sites are now full service. You see there's more to the costs of owning a 'gravel parking lot' RV park than most realize! also we have by far the best free wifi of any park you'll stay in after upgrading and increasing bandwidth for the last several yrs ($). Add to that our 360* mtn views, low humidity, no mosquitoes and total quiet at night and I think we're the best value around Yellowstone. our restaurant features 5 star chef Will and the coldest beer in the county in our saloon and we're an even better value. I forgot to mention our heated outdoor pool and indoor hot tub! See you all soon. Ron

This park is highly overrated. $52.00 a night with no sewer hook-ups and no cable. Sites were gravel but now is worn down to being as if you were parked on dirt. A worker drives around everyday with ground smoother, covering all rigs with dust, you must keep your door closed. They do not allow washing vehicles even tho they cover them with dust. They have a sewer dump but you must pay a $5.oo fee to use the key to it. We wish the Good Sam campground reference book had been more accurate, we would not have stayed here.

When I made my reservation I was quoted a lower price over the phone. They said that the sites and roads were gravel. I understood that, but when we got there it had rained and the site was calische red mud with some gravel in spots. It was impossible to park level because we were making deep ruts in mud. We had to move stones to build up an area under our wheels. After 2 days in the park, management decided to put keypad locks on the shower doors. They didn't notify anyone, and if you came back to the park after 10 pm you couldn't get into the bathrooms to shower. They had one unlocked bathroom with toilet and sink. We were in a water and electric site. The dump station is locked and the key is only available from the office for a refundable $5 charge. We couldn't use our tote because the rocks are 1 to 2 inch in diameter and the roads are rocky. We stayed 7 days here and we don't recommend it for anything but a 1 night stay. We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have been coming to this park for 8 years. Best value for Yellowstone. Sites are level, it's easy to get your satellite and to get a big rig in and out. No mosquitoes and the river is beautiful. Our friends stayed in the motel and had a beautiful room overlooking the river. Loved, loved, loved it! We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lots and lots to do. Cody, Yellowstone, Fishing, Horseback Riding, Chief Joseph and Beartooth Highway to Red Lodge. May and September we love for all the animals. Herds of elk in fall and lots of big horn sheep in the spring. Easily spend a week or month here. Fun to relax in pool and hot-tub. The Wi-Fi is very good. Yellowstone Valley Inn restaurant and bar are top notch and the breakfast buffet is fantastic. We'll keep coming back for sure !

This is the closest full service park to Yellowstone. Our site was level and with no trees, we got excellent satellite reception and the views of Wapiti Valley are AMAZING! We did not use restrooms but peeked in and they were clean & stocked. We did have the breakfast buffet on the Wednesday we were there and it was FANTASTIC - the chef made chocolate brownie walnut pancakes !!! The staff was so friendly & very helpful with info of area. Perfect place to see Yellowstone and the entire area...once you've been here, you will always want to come back. We camped in a 5th wheel and will be back . We camped at Yellowstone Valley Inn & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
