Stayed at Yellowstone Valley Inn in Cody/Wapiti which is 18 miles W of the town of Cody. If you have a toad and intend to go into YNP (West entrance) it is not bad because it is a Passport America CG. Gravel pads but comfortable, secure and we would definitely stay there again.
Also checked out one right in Cody but it was pricy as I recall.
Cody is a MUST visit.

We stayed in the Ponderosa RV Park in down town Cody. Convenient and clean. See our blog:

We stayed at the KOA, a little outside of town to the East. We checked out the Ponderosa and think we would probably stay there next time as it's more in town.

If you want a nice place with plenty of room, check out Buffalo Bill State Park. There are 2 campgrounds, one right on the lake & the other at then end where the river flow in which is farthest from Cody and where we stayed. Beautiful park!

Peter,

If you are going into YNP, check out the road closures that start next week. Pretty extensive!

We couldn't get reservations at Ponderosa, so opted for Absaroka. They were cheaper ($30.00), so it worked out for us. It is near the edge of town, but Cody is so small, it's no big deal to drive into town. We liked Absaroka and would probably stay there again. We LOVED Cody.

We recommend The Ponderosa...nice people there...walkable to town and the museum. DQ right there on corner! We ALWAYS travel with reservations in hand...hoping for an empty space is not our routine.

We've also stayed at Yellowstone Valley Inn because it was a Passport America park. We only stayed a night because we then drove early into Yellowstone to get a non-reservable site.

The RV park was in a very scenic area as opposed to being right in town. However, it's a short drive to town. We also ate at the restaurant - good food.

I agree. The campground is very nice. And a nice restaurant in walking distance, too. The different sections of the museum are simply awesome and will take many hours to absorb! If I recall, the admittance pass is good for two days (I think) Don't forget the rodeo if it's still going on when you're in town.

We were there in last mid-September.

cheers,
Joopy

PS - unlike many, we rarely ever travel with reservations except for perhaps a destination point. works for us but not for everyone.
