Site 1 - Camp Steelhead
We stayed at Camp Steelhead in our RV in the last week of October when almost everything else was shutting down for the winter. The campsite was beautiful and private and the location was convenient to Yellowstone. It rained and snowed much of the time during our stay so we would love to come back and explore the area more. Mike was very nice and helpful with suggestions for local activities.

Quiet place outside Yellowstone.
Very quiet place outside Yellowstone. Not too far from the west entrance and nice to get away from the crowds. Lots of firewood to keep warm. Really great value. I would stay here again.

We stayed in both sites this past week while visiting Yellowstone. We had absolutely no issue finding Camp Steelhead. The firewood provided for an additional $10 was great. We took our 5 month old pup swimming at the buffalo river. The site was clean and quiet. All of the locals were very nice as we chatted with them while walking our dog. This is definitely bear country so be responsible and you shouldn't have any issues. Being able to plug our rigs in to the power and not having to use generators was awesome. The porto was very clean as well. 10/10 would stay again.

We loved the privacy on this land, just us. The fire areas were great. 10 dollar fire wood for the whole stay, a convienent porta potty as well as overhead lighting, we really only used two spots instead of three.. would absolutely rent her again..

Simple and exactly as advertised. Directions were clear enough that I could get there easily in the dark. Portable toilet was clean. 30 minutes to Yellowstone West entrance. I would absolutely stay again.

If you love solitude…
A pristine site in the woods. Mike was very responsive and helpful when we had questions. Deliciously quiet. Lovely walk to the scenic Buffalo River. We had a perfect stay. Thanks Mike!

Unlimited firewood for $10 was an awesome touch. Electrical hookups were also a nice change from last year. I also loved the hammock!

Great Family Spot
We LOVED this spot. Mike is so friendly and accommodating. We had lots of privacy. Just a 10 min walk to a beautiful spot on the river - good for fishing and taking in a sunrise/sunset. Picnic table is a very nice feature.

Very nice campsite adjacent to a wooded area. We felt like we had at least an acre of privacy surrounding our site. Very clean and flat site with nice firepit and plenty of firewood.

Great Host, site good for rvs.
Host was very accommodating and responded quickly to communication. He helped our big group out on short notice. However, this campsite is more suited for RV's than tent camping. Also, there is a vault toilet, but no potable water, no where to dispose of trash, and no bear boxes to store food.

The campsite was to small and close to other campsites and we had to run the power across an opening to another campsite overall it was okay

The campsites were spread out and very nicely kept. There was plenty of firewood for small fee. The surrounding woods made the area feel private however it’s a decent drive to get into Yellowstone. (1+ hrs to get to the geyser basins). But there are also many recreational places to visit nearby.

Camping in the woods.
Loved the location. Very peaceful and private which was nice. Picnic table, fire pit and wood available. There is also electric hookup available in 2 of the 3 spots. One thing I didn’t like was being charged the same rate for our site that didn’t have electric hookup. Host is very nice and quick to respond to questions. He even suggested local activities. I would come back again.

Camp Steelhead was the perfect location for our basecamp to explore Yellowstone (30 mins to West entrance). Mike was so very helpful in helping us come up with a plan B when we did not think we would be able to get into Yellowstone. There is so much to explore in the nearby areas! There is a beautiful river nearby that our kids loved hiking to. We felt very safe and comfortable. Thanks, Mike!

We were very happy with the site. We were on campsite #2. It was due to storm the weekend we were there and set up a tarp to help with the rain. We were the only folks for most of the weekend. It was not too far from West Yellowstone and made for a nice drive. The site was easy to find and the host was very responsive when needed.

Nice spot that host put some thought into creating. It's down a partly washboard dirt road and sparsely populated. You can see neighbors to three sides beyond the trees, but it felt fairly isolated anyway. 4th side was light pine woods. Wood was chopped and nicely stacked. There was an electric outlet available. I saw 3 campsites available and we were the only ones occupying the area. The portapotty was the cleanest one I'd ever seen. Nice picnic table too. Host was polite and responsive and gave recommendations.

Don’t
Very disappointing. Site was in the middle of neighborhood, surrounded by houses. Numerous “bear country” signs posted with no prevention mechanisms other than “put it in your car”. Overpriced for bare minimum experience.

Camping in the trees!
We had a great time staying at this camp! The host was very friendly and showed up to help us with connecting to electrical. The on site firewood was great and a great price. We loved being surrounded by the trees and would stay here again.
