Free parking allowed for the night despite signs that say no camping. Parking lot on both sides of the street. Great for large and small rigs. Tons of space and close to town. 3-5 bars of Verizon.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
sweet boondock find. we are here just days before campsites open for the season so no other options. be respectful and don't loiter or set up the whole kit. great restful place. called West Yellowstone police dept. to verify it was ok, they said this is where they prefer people to stay but absolutly no tents or tent trailers.Report Check-In
Both sides, north and south bound are good. The middle belongs to the truckers, don't use those spots. Park around the edges and you'll be fine. Arrived Monday night 8PM, first ones there north side. By 9PM almost filled. Would recommend.Report Check-In
Camps were full so no other choice, we arrived late around 10:30pm and absolutely full to the brim! Cars and campers everywhere along the sides, trucks in their bays in the middle. We managed to squeeze in. Have never seen a rest area/truck stop so busy! Not sure if there was something happening in town that made it this way but it was a good spot otherwiseReport Check-In
This location is Northbound. Across the highway is a Southbound rest area, but no facilities.Report Check-In
second night here and leaving the area in the morning. Thus far no one has bothered me. Felt pretty safe, high anxiety about wildlife, but I'm an anxious person.
5-6 other campers here. line up along the back to give truckers their space since I'm almost certain this is meant for them.
noisy, to be expected, it's on the highway. light sleeper would likely have issues.Report Check-In
we were street parked in town and got the knock from a cop at 3am who told us to come here so it's legit. lot was almost completely full when we pulled in but we found two spots for us. couldn't see if the other side was or notReport Check-In
Right next to the road so don’t expect complete quiet. Trucker rest stop so get the occasional truck that pulls in. Many other campers. There are No Camping signs but we were undisturbed. Overall good spot close to park.Report Check-In
Easy spot for a night while exploring Yellowstone. Just outside West Yellowstone, Montana. Lots of rigs, camper vans, travel trailers, etc on both sides of the street. Plenty of space for multiple rigs. There’s also a hiking trail through the woods.Report Check-In
we actually bumped into the sheriff and asked him where we could sleep since all campgrounds are still closed. he said this is an ok spot for a night or two and the "no camping" sign is more so people don't stay here for days.
it's just a truck stop nothing fancy, you better have earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
it worked for us as we arrived around 6 and will be leaving first thing tomorrow morning to get to the park.
A terrible place if you wanna sleep. Had one asshole semi who pulled up and stayed running all night long. There were three other campers and 4 semis in the north bound pull off.Report Check-In
Arrived late at night at this place and glad theres a spot for us. So far sleep good and quite. Busy time starts at 6Report Check-In
Pulled in around 11 pm. There were about 10 other cars and rigs in the lot already. We were undisturbed.Report Check-In
Tons of “no camping” signs everywhere so I went down the street to the established campground and it was full, but the camp host told me despite the signs it’s OK to park for one night. He said several trucks and RVs usually pull in late at night and it’s totally fine. It’s just a giant pull-off on both sides of the Highway. Not very private and lots of Highway noise but giving it a try!
Update: woke up at 6am to a full lot! Definitely ok to park overnight.
Good spot for the night. Was recommended here by a NPS ranger when he was telling me I couldn’t sleep in the park.Report Check-In
Works well for what it is. Highway noise is not bad at all after 10pm.Report Check-In
This is a day use area only. No overnight. No camping.
LTE signal with AT&T.
Perfect place to rest for a couple of nights. Showers at the laundromat for $3. Walking distance. Other rigs in the area. A little noisy bu fine.Report Check-In
Stayed one night there. Please try to not block a whole parking line with a small rig. The big trucks need this parking.
It is absolutely quiet in the night (if there is no truck idling next to you the whole night)
Parked here for one night, big RV car park on the side of a main road. Good location taking considering its so close to the park!Report Check-In
Still a good spot for overnight befor entering in Yellowstone NP.Report Check-In
We parked at the other place in town for two nights...but police knocked on our door the second night and said we couldn’t sleep there and pointed us to here...RV with generator running, trucks passing all night...not very good but looks like it’s the only free option close to town...Report Check-In
Good enough for a place to sleep when you come in late and leave early.Report Check-In
Slept here for 2 nights without any issues as all campgrounds in Yellowstone were jam packed. Fairly quiet considering it’s a parking lot next to the highway. Plenty of space for big rigs and trailers but no amenities.Report Check-In
Great spot 4min from park. Lots of rvs and cars.Report Check-In
Pull out on both sides of the highway as a truck rest stop. Traffic noise and no restrooms but great if you need somewhere to sleep for one night near west Yellowstone.Report Check-In
Huge parkings on each side of the road.
Very near to the West Entrance of Yellowstone
As described, it is a place for trucks to spend the night. I have been traveling and didn't realize it was a Friday, let alone Friday night of Memorial day weekend. So all the campgrounds were full. It was fine for one night but I would not plan on staying here.Report Check-In
great place to sleepReport Check-In
Free parking, no problem with overnight stay. Super close to west yellowstone, some trucks may park there.
There's laundry & showers(hot) on the way back to west yellowstone, look on the right side.
This is overnight parking Lot for truckers, RV's, and I've seen a couple cars. It's about 5 minutes outside of West Entrance to Yellow stone. Is very close to the road and has 6 spots on each side of the road.Report Check-In
Perfect spot for a night. There is a lot of space, many trucks and rv's here.Report Check-In
Parking gratuit autorisé pour la nuit, c'est un Ranger qui nous la conseillé.Report Check-In
