Roads are rather narrow to drive and turn. Most people end up driving through part of the dirt. Only nice thing is spots are spacious and the water has been fixed. There are no trees so I bet summers are really hot here. There's not a single thing for young kids to do, no playground or place to play. They end up running around all over. You can tell most people do not clean up after their pets including the camp hosts. The running track was nice to have close by for a morning run. We tried the commissary, but it was small, pricey and not well stocked. There's a Safeway not far down the road. Outdoor rec could do better with taking care of campgrounds in general. We camped at Buckley AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.
Head south on I25 to Colorado Springs and visit Pikes Peak. Head north on I25 and visit Estes Park.

We loved this place! Yes there is a long and bumpy dirt road to get there, but it is SO worth it!! If you are worried about getting your truck and/or trailer dirty don't bother trying it out. Everyone that works there is awesome! The grounds are on a big lake so you can swim, fish, boat, ski, jet ski, our dogs loved it too. They have a small marina to dock your boat and a fueling station. There's not much as far as TV goes, but we were so tired after half the day in Yellowstone (about 15 mins away) and the other half at the campground. We walked to the office each night and bought an ice cream bar for $1.50 each. Mornings were fairly cool, afternoons were a/c worthy. There are lots of trees which makes some spots harder to get into. A few areas to walk the dogs, but we didn't venture to far out. We camped at Madison Arm Resort & Marina in a Travel Trailer.
West Yellowstone is expensive!! Remember this is a tourist town. Gas was over $2/gal., groceries cost more here than most places, eating out is more than you may want to spend. We broke Yellowstone up into 3 days. Bottom loop, Top loop, then the lake section. It was easier to manage that way. Also, start early like 6-7am early to beat the crowds. Most people don't start out until 9am-ish and we were almost done by then and had no crowds to deal with.

The lady at check-in was not friendly at all, except to tell me the price. The sites are gravel and uneven. People don't follow quiet time rules, internet is horrible and we were right in front of the check-in building, dog park was clean but in need of minor repairs. The biggest complaint is how unfriendly these people are and that they really just don't care they're like that. We won't stay there again. We camped at Stone Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Stay closer to San Antonio if that's where you'll be most the time. It's 30 minutes away from here. And the traffic and construction are ridiculous. Sea World is 45 minutes away so again stay closer to where you'll be spending your time. Texas drivers don't care who they cut off and don't use turn signals.
