Why we chose here?
It is the only campground in Yellowstone open all year round

Sites: 86, spacious and most are pull throughs, some sites have flat pads for tents. Hiker/biker site.
          2 x Handicap sites

Groceries: Gardiner Market in Gardiner, 5 miles away, General Store in Mammoth

Reservations: No, first come first served. Come early as it fills up quickly during peak season.

Cell Coverage / WiFi: Verizon, for AT&T you will need to drive to Gardiner

Price Paid: $20 – cash or credit when the office is open

Date of visit: Feb & May 2015, May 2014

Would we come here again? Yes

  • No dump station – there are dump stations at Madison, Fishing Bridge – but it’s a long way to drive
  • You can use your generator during the hours of 8am to 8pm, quiet time in the campground is 10pm to 6am with a $50 fine for disobeying
  • Elk and Bison often roam the grounds and keep the grass down! 
  • The road around the campground is sealed while the sites are gravel with plenty of space in between. 
  • Sells firewood
  • Food storage boxes in some sites in case you need to store your food away from the bears.
  • Recycle centre
