4 of The Best Campgrounds in Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park offers nearly 3,500 square miles of wilderness excitement, from canyons and forests to bears and wolves. The park is a camper’s playground, but with so much space and so many campgrounds, choosing where to stay can be a challenge.

Thanks to The Dyrt, we have access to reviews and photos of campgrounds across the country, including those in Yellowstone National Park. We’ve selected a few of the top-rated campgrounds, according to real-life reports from campers like you. If you’re heading to Yellowstone National Park, check out these campgrounds.

1. Canyon Campground

Campers rave about the showers at Canyon; it’s a great place to spend the night on your way back to civilization after backpacking in the park’s deep recesses. There are 250 sites available, and the scenic views are rated as highly as the showers.

2. Tower Fall

Tower Fall is a small campground that does not take reservations, so get there early. Your efforts will be rewarded; Tower is remote and very close to Tower Falls, a series of beautiful waterfalls where you’ll likely spot wildlife, including bison, elk, and bear. Bring your camera and use the bear box for your food.

3. Grant Village

Grant Village is a big campground with lots of amenities. It’s not remote, but it is close to some beautiful sites, such as geysers and other geothermal areas. Hiking trails lead off from the campground, which stay relatively quiet as most people stay within the campground for the closer attractions.

4. Mammoth Hot Springs

Mammoth Hot Springs is one of the only campgrounds in Yellowstone that is open year-round. Besides the wildlife and outdoor adventure experiences, the main attraction is the Boiling River, which contains natural hot pools that are suitable for both warm and cold weather soaking.
