Yellowstone Campgrounds

There are a total of 12 campgrounds located throughout Yellowstone National Park. Prices vary according to the amenities offered. Not all campgrounds within the park accept reservations so it's important to arrive early (between 10 am -11 am) during the summer months in order to secure a campsite at any of the following campgrounds; Indian Creek, Lewis Lake, Mammoth, Norris, Pebble Creek, Slough Creek, and Tower Fall. These are generally much quieter locations with restrictions on vehicle length and the use of generators.

You can however make reservations for the following campgrounds; Bridge Bay, Canyon, Fishing Bridge RV Park, Grant Village, and Madison by calling (1-866-439-7375) or by registering online through Xanterra Parks & Resorts.

Fishing Bridge is the only campground that does not place a limit on the number of days you can stay in the campground. The limit for all other campgrounds is 14 days from July 1st to Labor Day. Camping outside of these designated areas or in roadside pullouts is prohibited. Dates are subject to change based on the weather and entrance stations usually post a complete list of the campgrounds that are currently open.
