West Yellowstone KOA was conveniently located to Yellowstone N.P. Short drive into and thru town and you were at the park entrance. We signed for 4 days but was given a full refund for an early departure due to an impending snowstorm (which actually did come). Cable channels were limited but adequate, as was the WiFi. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We really enjoyed this park. Close enough to town but far enough away to feel like you were in the outdoors camping. Out site was large and had great views of the surrounding mountains and meadows. It worked perfect for our stay to visit Yellowstone. Would stay here again when we return. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a KOA, so nothing is bad. The negatives are the sites are not especially level and some of the sites have limited access due to trees (make sure you are clear with your rig’s size and ability to get around). The positives are close to Yellowstone National Park but far enough away from the crowds of West Yellowstone to be the perfect location, solid electric, great store, and accommodating people. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice spacing between sites. Surface was dirt and grass and we did sink in slightly. Hook ups were at the back of the site but sewer was in the middle. Pretty easy to maneuver our big rig around this park. Pizza at office was OK, nothing special. Staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Lots of critters (prairie dogs and muskrats). We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The location was beautiful and would stay here again for an extended period of time. While it was 8-10 miles from town, groceries and fuel. The location more than made up for the distance. The sites were spacious but were dirt and could be a problem during a rainy time. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here to visit Yellowstone. Park is a short drive from town and is mostly quiet except for the trucks on the highway. We liked it because town was so hectic and noisy. Staff was friendly except for one gentleman on the desk who may have been having a bad day. He wasn't very forthcoming with help. We had a deluxe site which was fairly level, a good gravel base and a separate patio. Other sites were a gravel/grass mixture. Good views in all directions. Store had some limited supplies but it was near end of season. Park does have a pizza place on site but it was closed also due to end of season. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient location for W Yellowstone and the surrounding area, out of the town, but just a few minutes away. Good views of the valley and surrounding mountains. Busy with lots of departures and arrivals, dirt roads with a fair amount of dust. Huge mix-up between the office and the other staff over our site assignment, we were led to a pull through site with low limbed trees blocking the pull through. When I pointed out the error in assignments I was told this was all they had ... a clear "take it or leave it" attitude. The site was very uneven, requiring some careful positioning. When I expressed concern about getting my coach leveled without jamming the slides, the response was further belittlement! The services were reasonable, good access to the sky for my TV satellite and an acceptable wi-fi signal. But, this comes at a price, the rate is very high for what the campground is. The discounted $81 is an average of weekend and weekday rates we were charged. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Motorhome.

This park just reconfirmed why I dislike KOAs. Made reservations over 6 months in advance for 9 day stay and our premium priced lot was right next to the bath house? No one in the office had the authority to move us. This option was offered a day or two in but who wants to move once you are settled? Constantly had people cutting thru our lot to get to the bathhouse. My dogs are barking... guess why? Even the workers in their golf carts. Spacing is okay. Site was level and utilities did work well. This park offers nothing to do other than going into Yellowstone. KOA will never get money from me again after this trip. Just not worth what they charge. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Motorhome.

Great location although there is another KOA one mile east that is much better. We have stayed at both. We felt our site location was second class. We worked with the TV's for two days and was unable to program them. After multiple discussions with the staff, who could not figure out why we were having problems, the manager finally came out to address our issue. He informed us that if we were in a 30A site, there was no cable TV provided. We pointed out that the website and brochure showed cable TV and there was a connection in the pedestal. He tried to tell us that was standard procedure with KOA and they were not obligated to tell us that cable was not provided at 30A sites. We have stayed at 30 to 40 KOA sites over the years and never EVER experienced this before. Also this is the most expensive campground we have stayed at for $72 a night, that was with the KOA discount and no cable TV, "horrible value". We love Yellowstone but if this is what has happened to the commercialization of the area, we do not plan to ever return. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Park was nice. You pay the price in Yellowstone. This park is a few miles out of town. You can have a campfire because you are out of city limits. Had some improvements going on. Lots of construction noise. Will be better when it is completed. I like that they guide you in. I have never been in a KOA that charges for coffee. Staff was not the friendliest. I would stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is located conveniently to West Yellowstone. The shower setup was amazing! We were in a corner site and it was quite dusty when vehicles drove by. We would stay here again but would request a different site. We camped at Yellowstone Park / Mountainside KOA in a Travel Trailer.
