Beautiful place ran by ugly people! Very unfriendly hosts who impose rules that they do not follow themselves. We were harassed several times by the hosts over simple things being left out (that shouldn’t attract bears) while the dumpsters were overflowing with trash (which would attract bears). Hosts were very aggressive and rude towards us about our OHV even when following their rules and our OHV was vandalized while parked in their designated OHV parking. Do not recommend staying here!

We stayed here in the group campsite in early July 2021 during a Scout travel camp, for five days. We were doing stuff in Yellowstone, and this camp was in the perfect range. There is plenty of room, our girls were able to swim and wade in the Buffalo River (which is the southern border of the camp), and there was great infrastructure for getting our cooking done. Lots of nice tent sites. The camp hosts were wonderful people as well, and had a bunch of intel about the area. I would gladly stay here again, with a group, or just family.

Great campground. We had a very beautiful site. The sites aren't to close together so you don't fell like your on top of your neighbor. The bathrooms must be the cleanest camp bathrooms I've ever seen.

We really loved our stay here. Even though there was a ton of sites it was very quiet and the river was an added bonus. Do yourself a favor pack your chairs and walk on down with a can.

Loved it! Outstanding host Dennis, extremely helpful in finding us a spot when it was nearly full. Beautiful site, saw the cow moose that wanders the campground. Nice calm river that runs, great to float or paddle board. We hope to be back!
