Loved this place. You got the woods and the lake next to you. It's quiet and fairly close to Yellowstone. This is the kind of RV place we always wished for. Basic features but clean restrooms and water available. The site was large enough and had plenty of shade for summer hot days.

Great campground right next to the lake and close enough to yellowstone. The campsites are nicely spaced and have enough room for a 26ft camper and long bed truck to menuver into a back in site. This is truly God's country. It makes me want to move to Idaho.

Excellent little campground. We had the private family loop, which made it easier to social distance. Camp hosts kept the latrines well maintained. Our spot was close to the marina, which also had footpaths around the water. Beautiful little spot.

Absolutely beautiful campground. Hosts were so kind and very helpful. Super cute little trail around the lake and very clean bathrooms. Highly recommended. Great for kids. We will definitely be returning anytime we are camping in the area.
