Refrain From Hanging Items on the Trees

We have beautiful trees on our property and they are soft bark trees. That being said, if the bark were to be ripped off of the trees, the trees would die. We ask that you do not hang or tie anything onto our trees, whether it be a hammock or a clothesline. Thank you!

How far is Yellowstone KOA from Yellowstone National Park?

We are 6 miles west of the West Entrance at West Yellowstone, Montana. Old Faithful is only 30 miles from West Yellowstone. It is very possible to tour all of Yellowstone and Teton National Parks using the Yellowstone KOA as your base camp.


We have bears in the area due to the nature of where we are located. We do have security on at all times of the night so it is nothing to worry yourself over, however, we do ask that you keep all food, trash, coolers, and grills inside your RV, cabin, or car whenever you are away from the campground and at night. We have not had a bear on the campground in many years and we would like to keep it this way by following these precautions.

Electric Vehicle Charging

We do not allow electric vehicle charging of any kind at the site power pedestals. The Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in town has superchargers at their parking lot.

Cell Coverage

Being in the mountains, the cell coverage is spotty. Verizon does the best out here. Yellowstone also does not have good cell service except in certain areas.


We are in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, which means we have very limited internet. There is just enough bandwidth to check an email or lookup a restaurant. Please do not upload/download photos, stream or download audio/video. Do not rely on our wifi to watch Netflix, etc. Our wifi also does not have a password. The strongest signal is the WiFi in the laundry room/lounge area. Thank you and enjoy your stay.

After Hours / Emergency Number:

If you arrive after the Registration Office has closed, there is a night registration box available with guest information and campground maps.
If you have a life-threatening or safety emergency, please call 911.
