On this episode of Campground of the Week, Brett Neilson of OurCampingAdventures.com reviews Buffalo Campground in Island Park, Idaho. This campground is a favorite for the Neilson family, and they use it as a base camp for exploring Yellowstone National Park, since it is just 30 minutes from the West Gate.
Natural beauty and affordability are the stars of the show at Buffalo Campground. Campsites are surrounded by a dense forest of lodgepole pines, and the beautiful Buffalo River runs through the park. Fishing is said to be great here, but Brett can’t attest to that himself.
Individual sites are a bargain, running from $15-$20. There are a variety of configurations–pull thrus, back ins, double sites, and group camping areas. In this episode, Brett lays out the pros and cons of all of them.
If you are planning a trip to Yellowstone National Park, you should definitely listen to this episode of Campground of the Week, along with our other Yellowstone episodes: Campground of the Week #39 and RV Family Travel Atlas #100. Both will offer fantastic help for your bucket list trip.
In this episode Brett also lets us know that there is a lot more to this area than *just* the well known beauty of Yellowstone. Here are the activities, attractions, and dining mentioned:
- Island Park Reservoir
- Macs Inn Playhouse
- Eagle Ridge Ranch
- Mesa Falls Scenic Byway
- Trout Hunter
