Diamond P Ranch Camping is located conveniently just off the highway (but far enough from the road that you won’t hear too much traffic noise), and is on the boundary of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. Blake's lovely wife Megan met us, gave us an overview of the land, and got us situated. This location provides plenty of fresh mountain air and nearly 360-degree views to enjoy. Relax at your easy and open campsite or explore the bountiful offerings of the region.

From the campsite you can be in Yellowstone National Park in just over 10 minutes! It’s hard to find such laid back and spacious camping anywhere else in the region, and the park’s 2,000 campsites are usually all occupied by the end of the day, especially during summer season. We found it far more preferable, relaxing, and enjoyable to spread out at the ranch and not feel like you are camping on top of someone else.

From the ranch, you have great access to surrounding features like Earthquake Lake and Hebgen Lake, with their stunning views, ample and world-class river fishing, a truly relaxed vibe, and a lot less people than you’ll find inside Yellowstone. Seriously, a LOT less. You’re also within spitting distance of the Continental Divide, Lion’s Head Mountain, and endless national forest hikes and all the accompanying activities of such terrain.
If you’re interested in a horseback tour of the area, Diamond P Ranch has been operating rides for over 60 years and has trail rights throughout the region -- even going up over the Continental Divide. Their staff is wonderfully laid back and friendly and will definitely take good care of you.

The campsites themselves are generously spread apart, nice and flat, and sit next to Diamond P Ranch’s horse motel, so you’ll have the opportunity to meet interesting folks who are corralling their horses for the night and are perhaps even exercising them in the arena. A number of ranch horses also live 200 yards away in the open space, so you can go feed them apples and make friends with them if you’d like.

Amenities are basic, but you’ll have access to potable water and nice clean port-a-toilets. Wildlife viewing opportunities abound, including red tailed hawks, great blue heron, peregrine falcons, elk, moose, and foxes. Pleasant background sounds are provided by a small brook that runs behind camp, but the location really comes into its own during sunset and after dark. The magnificent sunsets will blow you away, but once the stars come out you’ll really begin to understand why Montana is called Big Sky country as you’re dazzled by the superb tapestry that engulfs you from above.

So happy to find a flat and peaceful spot for the vanThe morning trail ride heads out into the forestSunset was gorgeous despite haze from local wildfiresButtermilk Creek runs through the ranch while Lion's Head Mountain watches above

Super easy process, Blake and his dog escorted to a nice grassy area facing the trees and mountains. Water and power available. Horseback riding and hiking nearby. It is right off the highway but little noise at night, slept great.

It was nice to stay where we weren't packed in like at a standard RV campground. We had beautiful, peaceful surroundings, though it is close to the highway. This really didn't bother us. We were able to have power and water to our trailer. We very much enjoyed staying here.

Spent 2 nights here. It's a very pretty and comfortable spot overall. Drawbacks: road noise and ZERO privacy as it's just open grass. Location is good. Overall I liked it and it was convenient for visiting Yellowstone. We didnt trail ride but I wish we could have. Never met the owner, we booked it very last minute and showed up after biz hours, but he had one of his workers check up on us. Note: the camp sites are across the street from the ranch building where all the signs for riding horses are. A worker had to tell us where to go, as it was unclear.

The site was beautiful and peaceful. Upon arrival we were greeted by Meagan. She was so friendly and welcoming and took us to our camping spot.They port-a-potty was the cleanest I have ever seen. They had electricity and water hookups. I would definitely book a stay here again (and next time I will be sure to book a horse back ride). In the afternoon we watched as the horses were released to the field and it was magical to watch them run around. Loved everything about this spot!
