I was very pleasantly surprised by our Western Cabin, Canyon Village, in Yellowstone. We stayed four nights. It was recently remodled, clean, bright, modern and QUIET! We had two queen beds, nice bathroom (with heat lamp), sliding doors that opened onto trees, a little table/chairs, K-cup coffee maker, dresser. There are 4 units per building, but obviously they put sounproofing. We didn't hear a thing all night!

They could make it better--a little refrigerator. Considering that the restaurants are average to poor.

Rooms were made up promptly every day. We had several burned-out lightbulbs that weren't replaced, but I'm being picky.

We stayed in September, when it was very cool. I can see this room getting very stuffy in the hot weather. We had the sliding glass door, and that was it for windows--with the exception of a small window in the bathroom. There was a fan, though.

All in alll, a pleasant surprise. And worth the price of being in the park. Now, if they could only do something about the awful food....

We didnt stay in the campground. Canyon Village has a mix of housing options. Cabins that look a bit scary and a campground, and then 6 individual lodge buildings that are 2 stories--seem to hold about 20 or so on each floor. THis was out escape from the horros of Grant Village--a much much nicer place to stay. Cleaner, newer, better beds. Only complaint is they have a giant pole light in the parking lot, and it shines in through the wood slat blinds like a searchlight. Quiet at night, but not the best room to room insulation. We could hear our neighbors loud conversations, word for word until about 10pm, then snoring through most of the night as well. But compared to Grant, it was 5 stars! The dining room was fine--about what we expected. Very pleasant hostess and server. I had the bison raviloi--it was just fine. Hubby had the massive prime rib--hey, we had climbed a mountain that day and were famished--and he enjoyed it. A better cut than we expected, and prices seemd reasonable for the captive market. Cafeteria was closed--maybe becuase it is late in their season.
Great location in the park--pretty central and waaay less frenetic and crowded than Old Faithful. I would stay here again, or try the Lake Hotel, which is on Lake Yellowstone and has the best restaurant in the park.

Room Tip: Cabins accept pets and seemed to have lots of smokers milling around outside. And they look a bit nasty--so stay in a lodge room if you can.

We stayed here for two nights of a two week camping trip. While I would say that Madison campground is much more beautiful, this was a nice campground as well, and well located for the Eastern side of the park. The sites are wooded, and we had a nice site in one of the only tent only loops. One night was our only night camping for two weeks where the neighbors were loud, but they did quiet down after 10. The showers were nice, clean, and untimed. It was nice to be camping right in a village, so that we even went out for breakfast one morning!
Yellowstone is VAST and, if you don't want to spend all your time driving, you will want to stay in multiple places as we did.

Great camping at Canyon Village. neighbors were quiet for the most part, and the shower facilities were great: $3.39 for unlimited-length shower. Hot water in the sink faucets. electrical receptacles that don't blow when a blow dryer is plugged in.

Campground has trees, no sun, and no view (except trees and other campers). Neighbors are close, but, if one is really upset about that, get a backcountry camping permit and leave the neighbors behind!

Only a "4" because no view; a bunch of lodgepole pines for "scenery" just isn't a 5 in my book.

We stayed here for 5 nights on our North American tour. We arrived on a Sunday night to a long queue at check in. However the staff were working as quickly as possible. We were assigned a pitch on Loop F which had tents and RVs on it. Being used to European campsites we were surprised at the large size of our pitch contrary to what the US/Canadian reviewers say! We also thought it was more private than we were used to since you are much further away from your neighbours than in Europe.

The showers are at check in meaning we drove to them most days and cost $3.50. You get unlimited hot water and we only queued once in the week and this was good considering the campsite was full. The showers were also very clean.

Each loop has toilets and 1 washing sink meaning we had to queue to wash our pans in ice cold water.

Firewood was $8 per box and the nights are cold so we got through at least 1 box per night. Luckily we found some downed wood which we were able to use. Later in the trip on Canadian campsites there was unlimited wood for the same price which we found to be a much better situation.

Location was excellent for exploring the park. The Canyon Village has good facilities and whilst the Canteen was slagged off in my guidebook we found it to be excellent value with large portion sizes. Admittedly it is not fine dining but the value for money makes it a good choice.
