Where to stay for a month in WY or Montanna

We're going to fish our way north to Cody, Wy in June. After Cody, we're not sure where to land. And we'd like to park for a month.

Suggestions welcome on where to land for a month are appreciated. We like state/national parks, fishing, museums, historical stuff.

Thanks all.

As you probably know; many state, Forest Service and National Parks have stay limits of less than a month. Between Cody and the East Entrance to Yellowstone National Park there are two Forest Service campgrounds (Rex Hale and Wapiti) along the Shoshone River that I believe have some electric sites. I think Bakers Hole and Rainbow Point Forest Service campgrounds outside of West Yellowstone also have some electric sites.

It appears there are no more first come first serve campgrounds in Yellowstone. According to the Yellowstone National Park Website 

Quote

from the beginning of May through the fall, all campsites can be reserved. If you arrive without a reservation, the chances of finding a campsite in the park are slim to none.

Trying to stay clear of Yellowstone. Been there, done that...and it was a zoo back then. It's the 150th anniversary and everything within an hours drive is booked all summer.

We tried to book at the Buffalo Reservoir west of Cody. Seems non-residents can't book more than 14 days out. Ya, fat chance that will be rewarding.

We are looking at the Flathead Lake area. Have relatives south of there.

We have a full hook up private camp spot in Junction, Utah.  Near lots of fishing and right in the middle of many national parks.  $400 per month includes all utilities and great internet.  Contact me at the email address rfarrar@1horizon.net.

If that is a state park, WY has so few residents that they probably can't compete if not given the time. As of 2020 census, there are only 581,348 people in the entire state. And they are the seventh largest state in land.

We just might take you up on that. We're currently south of you in Panguitch. Love this part of Utah. Easy drive from home base in Salt Lake.
