Beautiful country, gorgeous horses, and adorable dogs. We drove up to the property which is directly across the street from Sacajawea’s gravesite. We opened the gate (and made sure to close it behind us to keep the animals safely in their field) and drove down a little dirt road until we found a spot to setup our tent. As my husband setup our tent - two, friendly dogs ran up to us and were so playful and affectionate. We also were surrounded by some of the most beautiful horses I’ve ever seen, including darling little foals. A few of the horses were friendly and approached us curiously. We climbed into our tent as the most beautiful sunset filled up the sky. We did not meet our host, but she messaged us instructions and we were in touch during our stay. We slept well as the space, for the most part, is incredibly quiet, except for dogs barking just a handful of times during the night. I would definitely recommend this property for your camping trip. There are no amenities, but being surrounded by horses, dogs, and beautiful land is enough for me!

We loved our visit to wind river and were so welcomed by the cutest two farm dogs. They slept outside our teardrop trailer all night and woke us up with kisses in the morning. The pictures made it easy to find and Patti was quick to respond to our request and questions! Beautiful scenery and a lake right down the road is a great way to freshen up in the morning.

A beautiful place to camp! We drove through Yellowstone all day and this was the perfect spot to unwind. The site was mowed so we didn't have to worry about tall grass/weeds. A small fire pit was built and there was plenty of wood around the property. Jason and Patti gave us great directions and advice and then let us do our own thing for the rest of the night. The horses were beautiful as well !

My Girlfriend and I picked this hipcamp because it its location and landscape. However, the directions were horrible!!! Without looking at the reviews from other guest, we would have never found the location. Here are some updated directions for future guests. The location of the hipcamp is ACCROSS the road from the cemetery. You'll see a Yurt and 1 or two T-pees set up once you get close to the cemetery. If you see horses, that's the location. Drive past the cemetery to the stop sign and make a right. Then look for a gate that is not open all the way on your right leading down a dirt road. Turn in there. Go down the road, it will be bumpy, and make your way past the bee hives around a bend to the yurt. The host may or may not be there. We knocked on the door but no one was home. I say, message Patti through the site if she isn't there before setting up your tent or whatever. You'll see a gated circle, maybe with a horse in it. There should be tire tracks past it leading out into the field. This is where we drove to set up our tent. Be careful not to get your vehicle stick in the mud, we had four wheel drive and got lucky. If you drive a ways, you should come to a clearing. There is a fire pit to the left of the tracks but you'll need to get out and walk around to find it. We pulled our car up to the fire pit and set up camp there. Patti did communicate with us through the site and via text about 20 minutes after we arrived but didn't answer the phone when we called, when we first arrived and were trying to find the location. We never met her face to face either. When we finally did communicate with Patti she was very nice and told us her dogs names. She has 4 dogs and she was fine with us setting up camp anywhere on her property. The dogs are great. I say this because one, I'm assuming "winky" the black and white dog stayed with us all night and this dog protected us. Yes!!!!! There was some animal that kept creeping up to our tent and that dog chased it away over 10 times throughout the night. I don't know what the animal was but once, when we were siting around the fire I say the dog chase a large grayish animal away. That animal was VERY large. I looked up what kind of predators are native to the area and bobcat was the only animal that fit the size and shape of what I saw. The dog slept by our tent all night and woke us up multiple times because it started to bark and chased the animal away. We didn't get much sleep but we did feel safe, ONLY because of the dog being around us. Safety wise.....I'd say be careful because there is some large animal that is very sneaky our there. I still Highly Recommend this hipcamp to anyone who wants a heart pumping experience and beautiful views of the mountains. As a reminder, you are in Native American lands and so you should be respectful and kind. These people are very spiritual and connected to this country. We had a wonderful time, despite the danger. Visit the cemetery if you can. There is a spiritual presents there I can't explain. You'll have to go and find out for yourself. I say map out where you're going before you arrive and google earth the property. I hope my directions help future guests to this hipcamp. Enjoy and live your life! Namaste!!

Great views, but overpriced for what was available- which was a fire ring. Not quite sure where the running water was located or firewood or outhouse.
But again the views were spectacular.

Patti was a thorough, hospitable, and gracious host. Her land is beautiful and impeccably well cared for, and we had the pleasure of enjoying the company of her friendly ranch dogs during our stay. I would recommend this stay to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of the country.
