Flagg Ranch Resort
2 Miles South of South Entrance, Yellowstone National Park, P.O. Box 187, Moran, Wyoming, 83013, Uni
Flagg Ranch is in the perfect location for visiting Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks; it is just off the main road that cuts through the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, which is sandwiched in between the two parks. The grounds of the ranch include a main lodge, a series of cabins, and a campground. The main lodge features a gift shop, a general store, and a restaurant. The general store stocks the usual camping supplies. The lobby also has a water bottle refilling station, as no plastic water bottles are available for purchase in the parks. The restaurant has a locally-inspired menu and exceptionally friendly staff. The cabins are simple and rustic, but functional. A short walk behind the cabins will take you down to the Snake River, which is a nice place to enjoy the evening. The only problem that we encountered during our stay was a critter that invaded our cabin. (This was expected, since it is in the middle of nowhere). However, the staff quickly took care of the problem and we enjoyed the rest of our stay.
BLACK FLAGG RANCH
The worst camping experience my family and friends have ever had. The mosquitoes must have been immune to insect repellant and full clothing because I was bitten a total of 28 times during my unforgettable stay at “black” flagg ranch resort. Everyone endured the same horrific experience. Instead of enjoying our time off with family and friends, we were busy constantly scratching ourselves the entire trip. Also the restrooms weren’t cleaned in a timely manner so it was dirty and smelled pretty bad. “Go anywhere but here.” It’s ironic how all the warning postings refer especially to bears but mention nothing of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes definitely should have been a big part of those warning signs!! Anyone thinking of visiting ” BLACK “ flagg ranch resort, I strongly recommend visiting somewhere else. Stay away from this hell hole.
The staff weren’t very helpful or friendly.
Arriving at the Lodge our group thought "What a nice place." Upon going to our Cabins,however,our fantasies were were crushed! Two'complimentery Luggage Carts' were available..one had one flat tire,the other had one of it's tires laying in the cart!Strike One! The Cabins were beyond'rustic' ...tattered curtains,windowsills dirty,with many dead bugs on them.Strike Two! The sink faucet in #348 took two hands to operate, toilet paper was 'sandpaper'grade. Strike Three! Cabin Rental was way overpriced,even given the remoteness of the facility. The same goes for the Restaurant,which was sadly understaffed,(although the few waitstaff on duty made a valiant effort to give good service.). Sorry, but this is not a place that I could recommend.
Directions: Adjacent to U.S.Hwy 89

Not too unreasonable dining in a national park
Usually, I don't eat in a restaurant while in a national park. Mostly, this is because, like at any touristy spot, the food is expensive. And at the Grand Tetons, I had no intention of eating there either, but due to an accident blocking the entrance of Yellowstone, we were all sent to the Ranch. For lunch, the prices weren't bad at all...there was a good selection and for a snowy day, it was great to get into someplace warm with a home like atmosphere. I had the reuben sandwich and Jeanette had a burger. There was beef stew on the menu that looked great--I'll try that next time.
My only complaint and it's not really a complaint at all is that they were hit with a heavy crowd from this accident on their very 1st day of being open for the season. We had a server who didn't know the restaurant at all, the seating, the menu...she did get everything right, but it look a LONG time. And she made sure everyone knew when the road was open again--nice of her, but you could tell she just wanted to get people out of there.
