I read all the reviews before reserving and thought I would give them a try anyway which was a huge mistake! I should have gone with my 1st instinct when the woman couldn't understand me during reservations when I said our last name (Quick), spelled it out and did the Q for quake, u for umbrella, etc. The view of the Tetons is picture perfect IF you get an outside site! When we pulled in, our site was lower than the ground so we almost didn't make it in due to the huge dip. The bathrooms had trash overflowing and the showers were on timers that couldn't have lasted longer than 10 minutes. The knob was broke off and we had to use pliers to turn it on twice for the shower and getting dressed. The grass was pretty high and they had someone mowing the whole time we were there. We ended with grass all over the side of our camper and since their sites are gravel, I'm sure there were rocks hitting it too. I knew the pool and hot tub was out of order before reserving so I asked for an additional discount on the phone with my Good Sam and did end up with 15% but still paid $66/night. I went to the store several times, nothing is priced so I had to take everything up to the register and ask for prices while being looked at like I was putting her out. The sewer connection is a foot out of the ground and water doesn't flow well uphill so when we left we thought we'd try to dump at the dump stations hoping they were lower. The 1st one didn't have a rinse hose so we went to the one closer to the office (which is also a foot high). My husband had put the hose in the ground and before connecting to the camper my daughter noticed the sign saying it was out of order. When I go to the dump station, I don't look at the sign...I look at the actual hole in the ground! Maybe a 2nd sign needs to be there! At that time an employee came out the back door hollering "What the hell??? You owe $10" I got out and told her we couldn't dump at our site because it was too high. She asked what site we stayed in and why I hadn't complained the 1st day. I told her we had been in site 62 (which was our last campground..my mistake) and she said they don't have a 62 so I showed her where we had been (just looked at their map and site 62 is on there). I asked, "If I had complained about being charged extra for our kids would I have received a discount? If I complained about the sewer being a foot out of the ground would you come out with a saw and cut it off?" She just shrugged her shoulders. She said she didn't know we had been there. We stayed for 3 days, charged almost $70/night, been in the store multiple times and she didn't know we had been staying there?!?!? That is a slap in the face to me! The trash gets thrown in a trash truck. They have Wi-Fi but I had to reconnect every 5 minutes because it was so poor. They are not really close to anything. If I were to go back up there I would stay closer to Jackson Hole or Grant Village. We ended up leaving with our tanks pretty full because we couldn't dump anywhere on site. We stayed in site 154. We normally don't complain about small things at a campground but after paying that much and being treated like that, I feel the need to pick out everything. I would give a rating of 0 but this site doesn't allow it.
This has been the best campground we've ever been to. The sites are close to each other but so are all the others in every park we stayed at in Wyoming. We pulled in late but they kept the BBQ place open for us until after we were set up at our site. I don't eat BBQ but my family said it is the best they've ever had. The lights in the laundry room are on sensor and the bathrooms were extremely clean and all buildings looked newly renovated. We had full hookups, cable TV and dependable Wi-Fi for $34 which was the cheapest place through our 2 week trip. Check out is 10:30 which is a little early to me, but not enough to not stay again. We didn't stay long since we were traveling through but would definitely come back.
The quarters are tight here but we didn't spend much time at the camper. We didn't have electricity and the 8 AM to 8 PM for generators was hard to stay in if you spend the day out. Since the sun rises so early and the sun doesn't set till late, we lost track of time and would only get 30 minutes or so to run the generator. If you are worried about your battery dying and want lights, a few had solar panels (last place to purchase is in Cody from east entrance). There were so many mosquitoes we only walked out of the camper to get in the truck. The sewer is about a foot off the ground and our connection is low on the camper so we couldn't use the sewer at the site since we were pushing uphill so come prepared with a sidewinder or something. There is no cell service, Wi-Fi, or TV reception. It is the only full hookup campground in Yellowstone but we didn't have electric or sewer so I would stay somewhere else if we went back. There are lots of washers and dryers, the campground is close to the store and showers are $3.38/person.
Park is quiet with nice shady sites. This is a really nice campground and the owners were working every day on something (painting tables, mowing, weed eating, etc) even through the 4th of July. It is convenient to many attractions nearby. The Wi-Fi was a little iffy but it wasn't a big deal since we didn't spend much time there. We were not able to get any TV reception and there is no cable connection but this wasn't an issue for us. We didn't have any electrical issues.
Stayed overnight here since all near by campgrounds were full. Right off the highway, easy check-in, and sites are easy to find. Besides the highway noise, it is very quiet here. There is a swing set and slide in the middle for kids to play on.
To get to this campground, you travel down a horrible gravel road with large rocks for a mile. The cars driving up the hill to get out have to keep their speed up otherwise they will just spin their tires. The staff are very friendly and helpful with anything you need. We did run into problems our last full day at the campground. My husband complained about other campers walking through our site. We have 4 girls and when adult men walk through the middle of your site drinking and carrying their grill to their friends across the road, I have a problem. We didn't have people walk through once but several times. I guess the problem really came when one of them was the daughter of one of the staff members. It rained our last evening and the girls were playing in our site with water right after it rained. They went into the restroom at some point and came back to our site. Next thing we know, one of the staff members came over asking about all the mud in the restroom. I went in there to see what he was talking about and it was a "normal" amount of mud and grass. I actually had more in my camper from one coming in than what was in the restroom. I have a feeling we are were being nit picked because one of the people walking through was his daughter. This is a decent campground but we will probably not return. They do have scheduled activities, pool, miniature golf, shuffleboard, etc but quiet time does not start until 11PM and ends at 7AM. There are 4-wheelers that run constantly during that time and there is music playing right up until the minute quiet time starts. We were right across from the office and the pavilion is right next to us making this site very noisy. We do not drink or party so maybe this is just our problem. There is some kind of wireless but you have to get the code from the office. It is by satellite so it runs very slow. The sites are really close together and there are several family members that seem to live here. Restrooms are clean and the laundry room is clean as well.
