Awesome
This is an awesome campground, hard to get into. Go early morning like no later than 6am to get spot. You can stay a mile down the road at a truck and RV pull off stay there for free and run back early in am to get a site.

Great National Forest CG
Great campground which is well laid out - most sites can take larger rigs. Hosts are extremely friendly and tried their best to do what they could to accommodate everyone. This park is under Extremely high demand in the high season due to its close proximity to Yellowstone National Park. Great location right on the Madison river. Sites are 1st come 1st serve only. No reservations taken - which we love because we have seen so much abuse of reserved sites never being used in many other parks. However it does mean one has to get here early Am and cruise around to find a vacated site that they can then take. Some electric sites but we are fully self contained with solar & large tanks so it was perfect for us. Giving it our highest rating - we love it here!

Nice
Well maintained campground right on the river. Sites fill up quickly in the morning but checkout is by 2, so some sites are vacated later in the day. Larry, the guy running around on the golf cart, is friendly and on top of it. Wish we had brought tubes for our kids to float in the river—angler’s delight. Only 33 sites have electric. We dry camped with our 36’ class A. Our site was a bit tight but we got in. Many other sites would have easily accommodated us. Lots of trees between sites and nice fire pits and picnic tables. Highway noise is constant and occasionally an airplane from a nearby runway, but the price and proximity to the NP made it worth it. ATT signal is 1-2 bars depending on your site. Baker’s Hole is in a hole. Could text/email but not access data or upload pictures consistently. Verizon is the same.

Nice
Wonderful camp hosts! Very clean restroom. But when will the owners of dogs realize no one else likes to jear them bark. Disappointing from the barking dogs.

Back again to Bakers Hole May 2020. Still a great park and there is nothing of an issue with this park. Rates with senior pass are $18 for electric sites and without senior pass electric sites are $28. Senior pass can be purchase at Yellowstone Park entrance for about $70 which also allows seniors to get in park free. Baker's is located 5 minutes from quaint town of West Yellowstone and the western entrance to Yellowstone park. Great FOB for fishing on Madison at park and drive to Reynolds Pass and $3 Bridge, and the The famous (Kelly Kelly Galloup's) Slide Inn fly shop. Sites can take the largest of RVs, Hosts are great, lots of camp fire wood for purchase, roads in park great for walking and bike riding, bathrooms numerous and are absolutely immaculate and smell like a perfume parlor. Water stations thru out park so bring you containers. No dump site which is really the ONLY condition they should consider installing/improving.

Great Place To Stau
The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of highway noise. The park us well run and taken care of by great hosts. Vault toilets super clean. It is right next to Madison River. It is short driving distance to many sites and the touristy West Yellowstone Village.

We Enjoyed Our Visit
The campground was perfect for us. We had space between us and other guests. The bathrooms and campground were always clean. It is a great place to stay when visiting Yellowstone. (If you do want to spend the day in the park we do recommend going early in the morning to avoid traffic). There was some cell service but very low. The campground hosts were amazing, very friendly and helpful! Thank you for the great stay.

Same Price to Camp in Yellowstone
This was a nice campground, well run, but they increased the rates for 2019 and it's now $20 to dry camp, $28 for electric (unless you're a senior, then it's $10 off those rates). It's $20 for dry camping at Norris in Yellowstone right at the center of the park and not along a busy highway. Anyway, lots of folks crowded in the first spots by the entrance, but the river spots (62-65) are awesome spots. They are farthest from highway, spaced out more, and have river access. We were in spot 64 which has no site across from it and was a pull through.

Nice Spot.
We had to travel outside of the Yellowstone National Park to stay one night since all the campgrounds within the park were full at the beginning of June 2018. This is a nice campgrounds. Restrooms clean and sites are nice and wooded. Sites are cheap and West Yellowstone is a cool town close by. We ate elk burgers at the slippery otter and they were excellent. Our only complaint is that we could hear traffic almost all night on the main road. It sounded like helicopters flying by all night since the speed limit is like 70 or 80mph out there. My recommendation is that you pick a site a little further from the main road.

Senior
Excellent Campground. Large sites with plenty of room between. You are close to the highway so you get some highway noise. It is a very short walk to the river adjacent to the campground. Sites 25 through 50 have electric available both 30 and 50 amp. With a senior discount our electric site was $15 per night.

Nice Place
This was a wonderful place. The host are very nice. They take a lot of pride in this campground. The bathrooms are very clean pit toilets and we stayed for 16 days and never once saw them dirty. The host even let us change sites. We decided we wanted electric hook-ups. Very roomy sites. Busy check in days are Sunday and Monday. We even saw people flipping coins for sites, at 10:00 am Non-electric d $18 and electric was $23. They do accept Golden Or Senior access cards for half off. I hope you enjoy your time here as much as I did.

Bakers Hole Campground Site
Very nice clean park with nicely shaded pull thru site and wonderful hosts. And plenty of wooded area between sites. Easy access to the river on very short path. Great place to sit, picnic or fish. Wish it was warmer I would have considered putting in a tube. East access to Yellowstone National Park and town of W Yellowstone for cell svs, laundromat and groceries.

Well Priced, Close To Yellowstone
We chose this spot because it was much cheaper than any other campground in the area but also just a 5 minute drive from West Yellowstone. The pit bathrooms were the cleanest I've ever seen. Campground was very well maintained and spots were mostly level and big. Easy to back our travel trailer into. Some spots had electric but those go quick so we dry camped. Lots of people brought generators. They have a hose to fill your tank at the entrance as well as a dumpster and recycling. No dump station. Picnic tables and fire pits at each site. Nice and quiet and perfect if you want to stay close to Yellowstone but don't want to pay an arm and a leg.

Great RV state park. Lots of shade, peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. Seniors get a very low rate. Sites have electricity, and water is available at common places. Right on Madison River. Good bathrooms. Can't beat the price and location. Bring water containers so you can fill your water tank.
