The facilities (i.e., outhouses) are cleaned daily. Since we have a travel trailer, that didn't make much difference to us, but it's an example of the staff's conscientious care of the park. There are miles of trails, good fishing, wonderful views and easy access to...More

Visited Yellowstone National Park over 4 days. Decided to avoid the high-priced rv parks in West Yellowstone. 15 miles out of town in Island Park, ID is Henry's Lake state campground. Only 8 spots have sewer hookups, but dump site with water available near trash...More

Easily one of the most most beautiful settings for an RV Park. On the shores of Lake Henry, and under Mountains on all sides, this really was an incredible find. Only ~20 minutes from West Yellowstone. The mosquitos were pretty bad - but we found...More

If you're looking for a great RV park or to camp while visiting Yellowstone, please consider Henry's Lake. Compared to many of the campgrounds near West Yellowstone, the others can't compete with the view and amenities. It was amazing to wake up and see that...More

We drove by Henry's Lake State Park on our way to Yellowstone National Park, and decided it might be a nice, quiet spot for a picnic. Pretty lake with beautiful views of the mountains of Montana and Wyoming across the lake. There is a dock...More

Loved this state park for the beautiful lake view and the close proximity to Yellowstone. The upper loop was new and had new showers (always a bonus while camping). Sites had power and electricity and a few had full hookups. There were lots of wild...More

My family and I loved this campground. The facilities are super clean. The views are beautiful. Plus, the gophers, herons, and pronghorn sheep we saw were awesome, but the mosquitos were absolutely terrible. They sort of ruined it, which is a shame because this campground...More

We made reservations literally a week before we went. I was surprised to find camping in the West Yellowstone area with that short of notice. Usually thing book up way in advance for July and Aug. There are some KOA's... More

Hope you get this answer in time before your trip … Don’t be put off by the fact that it’s “cheaper”; state parks usually are. Too many commercial parks are like parking lots—RVs too close together. But in every state park... More

Not sure about the tents. Maybe you could call them. There are stores close by, but they are definitely in the "convenience store" category. There are two full-service grocery stores in West Yellowstone, about 15 miles away.
