Our Experience at the Buffalo KOA Journey

For us, his was a one-night stop between Badlands N.P. and Yellowstone. 

Although we were only there for one night, our stay was certainly memorable. 

Shortly after checking into the site, it began to rain. It was not just light rain but heavy torrential rain. Shortly after that, we all received tornado warnings on our cell phones.  

Of course, this was also a planned laundry day. Knowing we would be in Yellowstone for four days, we wanted to ensure the laundry was done. So we spent most of our stay here running between the laundry room and our site in the rain. 

In conclusion, our experience at Buffalo KOA Journey was magical. From the stunning scenery to the wealth of amenities and sense of camaraderie, it truly exceeded our expectations in every way. We can’t wait to return and create even more unforgettable memories in this slice of paradise.
