Madison Arm Resort is a seasonal place for camping and RV’s near the west gate of Yellowstone National Park. It runs from mid-May to the beginning of October. The property features a beautiful lake and mountain range with campsites and cabins among pine trees. Cabins and cottages are very luxurious with full kitchens and living and dining rooms. There are many outdoorsy activities for families to try, including rafting, hiking, biking and horseback riding. Hebgen Lake is also on the grounds, providing ample fishing capabilities. An onsite marina covers guests’ motor boating and kayaking needs. Virginia City and Nevada City are only a short drive away, offering restaurants, live theater and museums.

We stayed at a cabin here, which was straight out of the 50's. The sink, oven, and shower were VERY old. Some might find it charming, I found it usable, but not great. Also we brought hammocks with us to use just to get there and be told that no hammocks are allowed. WTF? I can understand those with hammocks that hurt the trees, but hammocks these days have straps that just wrap around the trunk, no damage. The road going into and out of this place is a major washboard pain to drive on. We will not be returning.
We stayed for 5 nights. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The lake is beautiful. We had a pretty small spot but it fit our trailer fine. The access road was quite rough and the bugs were insane but if you had a bug zapper you’d be ok. Nice washrooms and showers and the laundry facilities came in very handy. It was a great place to stay while visiting Yellowstone
