Any suggestions for Cooke City MT

Picked up our Airstream 1 month ago and our son wants us to meet him in Cooke City, MT (he lives in Bozeman). Any suggestions for nice campgrounds or places to visit in the area. We are driving up from CO. Much appreciated.

We really loved visiting Cooke City! We Live in Gunnison, CO. Great drive up Thermopolis, then Cody, then the best scenery from Cody to Cooke City. We didn't have our AS at that time, but there are Forest Service campgrounds. Then, Cooke City is on the Northeast corner of Yellowstone! We actually watched a bear in a downtown Cooke City motel parking lot pull of a large container of dry dog food of the back of a vehicle and drag it behind into woods and eat! So carry some bear spray! Really a fun little town, dying to go back.

There are two very nice state campgrounds in Cook City (no hook ups). And they ar cheap- like $4 is you are the elderly type. You are only a few miles from Yellowstone Park entrance and then another 10 or so to Pebble Creek Campground in Yellowstone. It's our favorite CG in the park. Great fishing and the Lamar Valley terrific for wildlife viewing. We see bears and wolves every time we are there. You can't make reservations at Pebble, so get there early to see if you can get a spot. If not, we go to the state CG and try the next day.

Miller Creek CG is a National Forest CG near Cooke City, then there is Beartooth Lake CG up on the plateau.

Boondock in Yellowstone (relatively near Cooke City) Pebble Creek or Slough Creek Campgrounds. You will be in the heart of nature.

The Bear Tooth highway is one of the most fantastic drives we have ever experienced. We did meet a truck pulling a SOB, so it is possible to do the trip with a trailer. We enjoyed it much more with just Bimmer. We'll do it again. Pat

Cooke City is pretty small, but spend an hour poking around it before you pass it by. We came out of Yellowstone headed for Red Lodge, MT in 1972 and went thru Cooke City. We were pulling a SOB with a Ford Econoline Van and lost 1st gear on the West Summit on the Bear Tooth Highway, and lost 2rd gear on the East Summit, and had to come off of the 10,000 or so foot East Summit with just 3rd gear, truck and trailer brakes. Lost 3rd gear passing Red Lodge. Towed into Laurel MT. If you come out of Cooke City and go over the summits to Red Lodge, only do it if you have a very adequate tow vehicle with transmission and oil coolers. We ate lunch on the top of the pass and were nearly carried away by the 'skeeters. Very beautiful county and top of the world type of feeling. Enjoy.
