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

Very beautiful primitive campground nice and quite. They have water you can pump to use and a bathroom. Very good place for fishing and great access to Yellowstone National Park. Would highly recommend. - timenazi

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

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

This is more of a parking lot at a motel. Close to park. The little store next-door was great. . Unfortunately the owner is a jerk I should not be in the hospitality business. - RWHooper

I was leery in staying here after reading the previous reviews. The laundry room, restrooms, and showers were very clean, My congrats to the staff. A concession stand by the office had good eats at reasonable prices. Wi-Fi was great, but there are no cable or air TV channels. The RV park is nine sites in a line on the west side of the property. Tow vehicle parking can be difficult, but not impossible. The pet area are on the west and south sides and is limited. I walked across the highway to Road 6Cu, a gravel road that proceeded north for a mile and ends at a WY Anglers Access to the Shoshone River. Mentioned in a previous review was a structure that 'looms' over the RV park. The Smith Mansion didn't bother us at all. As far as all the banter about the owner, we used this as a base camp to Yellowstone. Out early, in late and never experienced any problems with the owner. One warning. The office is closed from 12 pm - 2pm. Show up in between and prepare to sit in the driveway and wait. - The Wandering Berries

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. - CDPTravelers

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. - SubVet SSBN619

Very nice setting the grounds are gravel and fairly level. Spaced nicely. There is no enclosed pet runs. The employees were great and service was spot on. Very dusty and windy. - mcomeaux

This park is on a beautiful lake with mountains around it. All the sites view the lake. This is the North Shore campground and there are 3 loops, 1 with electric--the others are dry camping. The 6 tent-only sites are awesome, with privacy fences. There are small trees but no real shade. It's so windy that it stays cool. I would have given it a 10 if there were more electric sites. All sites are pull-through. The town of Cody is very special. I would strongly suggest visiting here. The ride from Yellowstone was gorgeous. - Tim and Susan from NC

Campsites on the lake at North Shore Bay are a 10 for the views (this assumes you know that only one loop has electric and water and the other 1st come 1st serve loops have no hook-ups). If you don't have a campsite with a great view, the campground is an 8 or 9 overall.
Pros: Large sites. Convenient to Cody and on the way to Yellowstone. Very clean vault toilets. Great views.
Cons: The road to Yellowstone creates road noise (not awful). No shower facility. A bit windy in the afternoon and early evenings as storms come off Yellowstone. If you are on the inside of the loop your door will face out to the loop road (loops are pretty short so there is not to much traffic.
$26.00 reflects: water, electric, state park fee, online fee, out of state. - rockwood tt family

We had no reservations, therefore where in the dry camp area.
It made no difference to us because the spot was absolutely beautiful. We stayed an extra day....made it three nights. On our second day the wind came up and it was pleasant. It is June though and the wind was warm.
The views are great! We are on the water, looking at the lake and mountains.
You are ten minutes into downtown Cody, which by the way is very charming. Like it so much better than Jackson Hole.
If we had the time, we would stay longer. - Brandl
