Campground Review - West Yellowstone

Madison Campground

Why we chose here? It's the only campground open in the middle section of Yellowstone NP between 1-7 May

Location: 14 miles east of the West entrance of Yellowstone

Sites: 278

Facilities: Restrooms, dump station, dry sites, tables, fire pits

Groceries: West Yellowstone

Reservations: Yes, it's run by Xanterra. We booked by phone to make sure we got the right size.

Cell Coverage / WiFi: None, but you can get Verizon further into the park, especially near Fishing Bridge

Price Paid: $25.66 per night

Date of visit: May 2016

  • The sites are well laid out amongst the pine trees, it's a nice campground
  • The dump station closes when temperatures dip below freezing – it was closed the morning we left.
  • Our campsite looked like a pull through, but you have to back half-way in and then park your truck at the back.
  • We had site A30
Would we come here again? Yes, because it opens before Fishing Bridge
