This is a typical National Forest campground with nice roomy spacing between sites but limited on the hookups. I did use the bathroom, pit toilets but they were very clean and plenty ventilated. The interior road is gravel and well maintained. Our site had a fire pit, picnic table and was right on the river. We thought the river would be more accessible but vegetation makes it difficult to get to. It was pretty warm during the long summer days but nights cooled off nicely. We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful view from campsite, various wildlife to see and drive into core of Yellowstone was fantastic. Even though Rex hell is away from all the other major attractions that's what makes it so special. We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

Great place to camp. Roomy and very quiet. Beautiful scenery and river running along side. Have stayed at many camping spots along our journey and none have compared to Rex Hale!!! We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Travel Trailer.

Totally agree with other reviews in that it is an awesome place to stay (especially for the price/location)! We stayed here 2 nights but would have given up our Yellowstone reservations to stay here longer if an electric site would have been available for the extra nights!

The campground is quiet and roomy with very friendly campground hosts who have been here 5 seasons now so will probably be here for a while :). You don't hear the highway traffic even though it is close. Our site had electric and water, was flat, and was easy to maneuver into. We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Motorhome.

Check out the Cody Rodeo while you area here. Also, we used this as a base to drive the Bear Tooth highway with our tow vehicle and that was great (we did it in the MH a few years ago and it was not too much fun...).

What an awesome place to stay! Would have given it a "10" overall rating if it had sewer hookups! We made reservations for three nights, only staying one, because we were able to get into our space in Yellowstone National Park early.

Rex Hale is a quiet place to relax. You don't hear the highway traffic, as the park is off the roadway and down a slight incline. Did not see any wildlife at Rex Hale, but was told it was possible. The park host was very nice and informative. We had no problems with our reservation. We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Cody Rodeo is a short drive away, about 45 minutes. And the East entrance to Yellowstone National Park is about 20 minutes away.

Overall Rating:

The Rex Hale Campground is located just 16 miles east of the East Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This campground is next to the Shoshone River, and it has 30 sites well separated from each other by natural brush and vegetation. The sites are level gravel with fire rings. There is little to no noise from the highway nearby. The camp host is very friendly and helpful and he offers free firewood for your site when you arrive. We camped here for five nights and drove to Yellowstone National Park most days and Cody, Wyoming for groceries. This campground provides a quiet, scenic, and natural experience that few other RV parks offer. The natural scenery around the park is magnificent. We would definitely sty here again. We camped at Rex Hale Campground (USFS) in a Fifth Wheel.
