Where are we going today?
Yee haw! Howdy y'all! If you are making a stop at the old wild west town of Cody, then the Ponderosa Campground is in a great location for you to rest those weary bones of yours during your stay!
Cody is a true western experience - and a town that was founded by Buffalo Bill Cody himself! All summer long there is a knee smackin' slap banging rodeo every night, and fun activities for every age!
They are also very close to the gateway to Yellowstone National Park - an incredible feat of nature!
Back at the campground there are full hook up RV sites with picnic tables, which also come with free wifi and Cable TV. No rig is too big or too small as they have space for multiple slide-outs. There are cozy heated cabins if you don't have a home on wheels, and for those wanting something a little closer to nature, there are grassy tent sites and even pretty cool teepees to stay in!
The very friendly Richardson family will welcome you with a true old fashioned yee haw welcome, and show you around their camp. They have live entertainment, a good ol' Cowboy cappuccino bar, a bus stop for the Rodeo shuttle so you don't have to worry about hauling that RV back into town, and river rafting tour pick up.
Kids, they have you covered with their fun video arcade, a great playground and a billiard table!
Y’all have a great time, and y’all come back now, ya hear!

We are from Tucson, AZ & after 533 miles & 8.5 hrs on May 28th- June 2nd we finally arrived to this wonderfull campground " Jemez Falls" we simply typed in the name of campground in our cell gps and it took us straight to it. The campground has approx: 52 sites & yes I will spill the beans and share what site is the BEST!!!! if you wanna be away from the other campers # 46 & #47 are the farthest sites and closest to the Falls. remember no reservations 1st come 1st serve either way the whole site is very quite, peacfull and super awesome. The Jemez Falls is something spectacular. If you have the courage, skill and adventurous you, must hike down to falls. when you reach the metal guard rails go west and keep your eyes peeled for the trail you'll know youre on the right one when you have to hike down these jagged/ steep cliffs using two old wooden logs as a ladder. "it's not a simple anyone can you type of hike but your blessed if you do! so much exploring down there one you let the water cascade on your head from the jemez falls make sure you hike down the rocky/bouldery canyon VERY BEAUTIFUL! Ill let your imagination take over... also when youre there it's a two mile hike "west" from campground to "McKulley Hot springs. youll see a sign upon reaching Jemez Falls which way to go. once you reach a stream of water you cant miss it nor the water coming down. go up a few feet and youll see the hotsprings. also when youre visiting make sure you ask the locals there or at the little market 8miles away on how to reach "Spencer Hotsprings & Soda Dam Hotsprings. If you are planning on Fishing you'll see the signs to Fenton Lake as well. My Family and I had a fabulous time at Jemez Falls campsite. for only 10 bucks a night that includes toilets but no running water is great deal. we had two tents and 4 people. Hope you go and enjoy.
