F.A.Q.

Diamond P iconThe Diamond P Horse Motel F.A.Q.

1. All campers must have proof of Coggins and health inspections for each horse. We will need to see that before you can stay.

2. Check in by phone when you arrive at the Horse Motel. Our trail Ride operation is on the north side of hwy 20 and our Horse Motel is located across the hwy on the south side at the arena. Call us and someone will come over to the arena and take you to your campsite.

3. Can you buy hay anywhere locally? Yes, we will have Weed Free hay (if you are going into the Park) as well as non-weed free hay. You will need to ask for the current price as it changes with the current hay market.  It’s very hard to find certified weed free hay unless you know where to go.  Alternatively, you can drive to Bozeman or Idaho Falls to get it.

4. You can buy small groceries and firewood at the KOA across the street.

5. We currently do not have septic services for RV’s. Here are places around West Yellowstone where you can empty your tanks. RV Dump Station locations near West Yellowstone
