Every cabin comes with a full bath, a kitchenette, a microwave, dining utensils and dishes, and a living area. Each of the 16 cabins can sleep up to seven people, and free Wi-Fi is available to all guests. Guests are asked to bring their own linens for the beds as those are not provided by the resort.

There is a building on the resort called the Beaver Den that can be used as a meeting and cooking facility for visitors to rent. The Beaver Den includes a fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms, a gas barbeque, a party area, picnic tables, and a firepit. There is also a small general store at the resort that guests are free to access in order to purchase anything provided that they may need. Some things that are sold at the store are fishing bait and other fishing supplies, firewood, ice, beer, wine, RV supplies, candy, toiletries, dairy, camping essentials, and ice cream. In addition to the previously-mentioned camping essentials, the store offers guests the ability to purchase a fishing license directly from the property to try to avoid any inconvenience to those who don't already have a license.

Another notable feature of the resort is the marina. For guests using the marina, there is a launch ramp, boat slips, propane, and a fuel dock. Trailer storage is also available. Guests are welcome to rent out fishing boats, kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, or a 22-inch pontoon boat. Families and large groups may also enjoy playing volleyball, tetherball, or horseshoe, which are all located around the resort areas. There are multiple barbeque and firepits, a swimming beach, and shoreline fishing. The resort is also fairly close to Yellowstone National Park, providing some background for the name of the resort.


Yellowstone Holiday Resort has many things to do around the property. The owners want the campground to be a one-stop location, or in other words, they hope to be able to provide everything that their guests may need. The staff and owners at the campsite strive for a family-oriented atmosphere. They also try to cater to each guest's experience with the hope that each person that passes through can have a relaxed and little to no stress vacation. There are many activities to do within the resort itself, which can provide an exciting atmosphere for those who visit.

More than half of the guests that frequent the park are returning customers. Guests have left many reviews regarding the area and the abundance of things to do there. Some guests have left reviews about the "friendly camp hosts," others about the "clean campsites." There are also some extra amenities that can help guests stay busy and active, which have been something that guests have said that they enjoy.

As for the surrounding town, it is relatively small compared to the size of most cities but has more than one grocery store, multiple restaurants, and a shopping mall. Some guests do choose to head down to the city and visit said restaurants or the mall in order to spend some more time together and try out some new things.


The Yellowstone Holiday Resort was established in 2000. At the time of the establishment, the campground was owned and operated by the Dumkeys, who owned and operated the campsite for over fifteen years. In 2016 Vickie Barta bought the property and has been the owner of the campground ever since. Though Vickie owns the property, she actually leases it out to others. She grew up being involved in the campground industry, and so when the opportunity arrived, she jumped on the opportunity to run a campground of her own. There have been many improvements and repairs that have been made to the campsite over the past few years, such as the enlargement of the general store and the building of the volleyball court. The resort is over twenty years old, and there are only plans to try and make it better.
