Description

Nice small campground not far from Gardiner. The camp hosts are very friendly. This is about 10 minutes from the north entrance of Yellowstone.
This is dry camping only with bear storage boxes for tent campers. There is a vault toilet.

Latest Check-Ins

Lovely spot easy to get to from Yellowstone. AWESOME Verizon reception.

Great campsite. Sign said full but we checked anyway and found several vacant sites.
stayed there 3 nights while we visited Yellow stone NP

Don't let Google maps fool you, this isn't a hard place to get to. It's on a gravel road with a 6-8% grade going up about 2 miles. It's wide enough for two vehicles to pass and isn't bad if it's raining. There is a sign that asks to put your vehicle into 4WD prior to ascending so they can reduce the washboard effect on the road. We had absolutely no issues getting our 42' 5th wheel up to this location. We had several friends with 5th wheels, 32' and 28' class C, and one class A get up without issue as well.

The campground is snug, but the sites are huge. We were able to get a couple campers in several of the sites while still following the 3 car limit. There are a couple horse camping sites up top with stock areas. Camping here will cost you about $7/night and is well worth it.
There is a vault toilet onsite, but no water. Each site has a campfire ring, but they don't sell wood. There are bear boxes at each site for storing food items if you choose to tent camp.

This is an excellent location to get into northern Yellowstone. It's about 30 minutes from the Mammoth Hot Springs. There are a lot of great places to eat in Gardiner which is about 10 minutes away. There's also a lot of outdoor activity offerings in Gardiner. There was good Verizon and ATT coverage. We were able to watch Netflix, Face-time, and have video calls for work.

Arrived in the dark. Seems nice tonight. I’m at site 4 with water gurgling by. Was glad to find the campground still open.
Didn’t see the interagency discount ($3.50 with discount) before paying but $7 is still pretty cheap as far as campgrounds go these days.

Nice place great view small stream running through the camp clean pit bathroom. Everyone very friendly 7 bucks a night.

buzy in high saison
continu on the forest road at 300ft after the campground for free and quite

Great place, very cheap.
Nice views.
Not all sites are marked but this does not appear to be a problem.

This is a very nice place, alternative to an expensive place in the Yellowstone N.P. 13 spaces, no potable water. We had bisons and elks near our car.

Nice small campground not far from Gardiner. Robert, the camp host is very friendly and knows some nice hikes around this place. A good alternative to the crowded campgrounds in the national park. $7
