The only thing preventing us from giving this one a 10 was it's distance from typical attractions. If we were (horse) riders it would have gotten a 10. The park adjoins or is part of a small ranch that has horses and offers guided tours. Immaculate showers/laundry/washrooms. Clean, well-maintained grounds. Gravel sites with young to medium age trees shading all. Restful, nice view of Montana countryside. Although traveling w/o kids, noticed some outdoor facilities (sand area, tetherball, maybe more) for them. Nice, helpful owners. Stayed for one night prior to Yellowstone park visit and liked it so much came back around for another night after Yellowstone. Each person gets a free ice cream selection at check-in.

Helpful staff-person, but it was the highest-priced campground on our trip and offered little other than that to help justify the price. Helped by calling a nearby community's church for us to learn when the services would be that next day. First pointed us to the phonebook when we asked what was available but then when we asked about how to get to the community after finding it in the book they called (twice) to get the times for us - something we were about to do but they jumped in and did it for us. Three out of four of the staff were working through their first day there. Advertisements tout countryside setting and mountain view but very few campsites have any view of the mountains and the grounds were pretty rough (mudholes, uncut grass, all kinds of unused wires and pipes sticking out of the ground where a person would expect to only see an electrical box, a faucet and a drain). Few sites have shade and the mosquitos weren't thick but they were too much for us when the sun started to set. The Wi-Fi was very spotty. Sites shouldn't advertise it unless they can furnish some minimum level of uptime. If it weren't for the help we got we would have rated it even poorer like most others have. (We didn't see the ratings until after we made our decision to stay there.) We stayed at several countryside-like places on our trip and all were kept up better than this one and were 3 to 4 fifths the cost.

Nice, in-town campsite. Felt as if we were parking in a city versus a campground. Half-mile or so to lots of retail. Office operation went like clock-work. Friendly staff first said they were full and were about to call another place for us but then found a big-rig (even though we had a 29' Class C motorhome) site we could have for the night. Free coffee/cocoa the next morning. Second highest price we paid on the trip but that might have been due to the bigger slot we were given due to their being full. If you want predictable comfort / cleanliness / ease of parking this'll be right for you. We like a little more countryside feel. Hard to beat the very slight jaunt into town though.

Nice, in-town campground. Within walking distance to several attractions in Cody and only a little farther walking to the downtown. Also partnered with a couple of shuttles that'll take you to some attractions. Well-maintained grounds, could use a little more shade in some areas (ours). Gift shop on the grounds. Wi-Fi was spotty for both days we were there. Other camper agreed. Desk personnel said it was always good but our and the other camper's experience said otherwise. The reasonableness of the campground conditions, the fair cost, and large number of things to see in Cody got us to change our stay from one to two nights. Would certainly camp here again if we weren't looking for a more countryside experience - although a deer walked into the very lower park of the campground reserved for tenters / teepee-ers while we were walking down there.

Our first ever campground on our first ever RV trip - but this review was entered after our 10 day / 6 campground excursion. Set the expectation for any further KOAs we'd consider but we unfortunately didn't stay at any others. Generally nice grounds but a little too rough (some overgrown shade areas and some small mudholes). Although traveling w/o kids, noticed small pool and a variety of play equipment. Countryside location but only a mile or two to lots of retail. Bathrooms / showers a little past the time they should have been cleaned up but the park had a fair number of young kids that'd mess something up pretty quickly. Was plenty good for a sleepover but the price seems high compared to what we experienced in Montana and some places in Wyoming (which had more to offer).
