7 Parks near Wapiti, Wyoming
Aug 2006 - $12.00
This review is on the North Fork section of the park. We did not stay in the North Bluff section of the park. This park has no hookups but is a great place to boondock very reasonably considering the area is next to Yellowstone National Park. This park is very well maintained with asphalt sites and roads. Very clean. - Enophite

Great place to camp. Roomy and very quiet. Beautiful scenery and river running along side. Have stayed at many camping spots along our journey and none have compared to Rex Hale!!! - JackieW662

Totally agree with other reviews in that it is an awesome place to stay (especially for the price/location)! We stayed here 2 nights but would have given up our Yellowstone reservations to stay here longer if an electric site would have been available for the extra nights!
The campground is quiet and roomy with very friendly campground hosts who have been here 5 seasons now so will probably be here for a while :). You don't hear the highway traffic even though it is close. Our site had electric and water, was flat, and was easy to maneuver into. - Bay Area Early retirees

What an awesome place to stay! Would have given it a "10" overall rating if it had sewer hookups! We made reservations for three nights, only staying one, because we were able to get into our space in Yellowstone National Park early.
Rex Hale is a quiet place to relax. You don't hear the highway traffic, as the park is off the roadway and down a slight incline. Did not see any wildlife at Rex Hale, but was told it was possible. The park host was very nice and informative. We had no problems with our reservation. - mortuaryguy

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

The web site is deceptive. This is just a gravel parking lot next to the highway. Staff are rude and unhelpful. - wjzcbn

The site was mostly level and had easy back-in access.
The bathrooms/showers looked very new and were quite clean. Only lacked places to hang or store one's toothbrush and clothes.
The owner lacked usual social skills, but was fair.
A good place for a one-nighter. Oh, no discounts in August. No late arrivals. - Brewco

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

Seven night stay. Well managed, clean, and convenient to Cody, Yellowstone, Sunlight Basin and Beartooth. Very nice and helpful lady manning front desk. Saw mule deer on the grounds, and largest herd of Elk (Wapiti) we had ever seen just across the highway. Buttes also visible from our window. It does get windy in this valley. - YstoneWY

This is a clean park with distant traffic noise, though very little at night.
Sites are wide, unshaded, near-level gravel in various lengths, separated by more gravel. Each site has a picnic table. Voltage is good. The gravel is thin in places which, in wet weather, become muddy.
Roads are gravel in good condition.
WiFi is strong; I measured 400.2 kB/s down. I needed to log in again every day. I really wish parks would follow the WPA2 standard.
Terrestrial broadcast TV: CBS, CW, PBS.
Laundry: 4 top-loaders ($2), 3 working dryers ($2). I was constantly bumping my head on the low woodwork above the dryers.
The showers are clean and private, but lack a place to sit while dressing.
Staff are friendly and helpful. - wjzcbn

Really convenient location for east entrance of Yellowstone. Place has hotel, cabins and rv park. Restaurant (expensive) and bar on site. Did not venture to pool or hot tub since bathrooms were so dirty. Private bathroom/showers were very dirty and not from just a day or two of neglect. Very friendly staff. Good value at ppa rates since anything associated with Yellowstone is $$$. Lots of pull thru fhu sites 30/50 amp. Good gravel pads with picnic table and fire ring. - bluesnugs

Stayed in A loop with water and electric. Site #5 was very sloped but we managed. The view, the quiet and the evening sky made up for any inconveniences. - mineralslee

This review is for the North Fork part of Buffalo Bill State Park. Great little park in the outside of Cody to stay at before Yellowstone visit. Only 8 electric sites, the rest have no services. Beautiful mountains on both sides. Verizon worked well. Good satellite service. North Fork does have showers and I believe North Shore doesn't. Great for an overnight or two. - smitty12

We stayed here as a vacation spot between Cody and Yellowstone, and as far as the park it was great. Basically we had reservations, and arrived, found our site late at night and set up. Never saw anyone for 2 days, found our name on a check in sheet taped to the booth later lol. Park was very clean, beautiful setting. We stayed at the North Fork side, highly recommend. - Ruckmanite
