Pros: No main road noise; easy 14 mile drive to Canyon--east side of the park (visitor center, groceries, restaurants); flush toilets; ice and firewood for sale; one mile from Norris Geyser Basin; bear boxes Cons: Some sites very close to each other; a noisy generator may be next to you—no tent only loop; no showers; no hookups A first-come, first-served...

Great central location to do upper loop one day and lower loop the next. Understand how to snag a site or you might lose out. Get a yellow form near the ranger station at the entrance to fill out and clip to the post of the site that is available. The whole process of finding a site seemed very haphazard.... More

There are two types of camp ground in my mind; bare essentials or cityfolk. This is more of a cityfolk campground with a firewood vendor, and ice dispensing shed (sort of like a giant vending machine), very close campsites, and plenty of loud cityfolk. We loved our site and would stay there again if we returned, but understand what you... More

The campground seemed well located, and with running water, but many spaces were close together, and finding a space is very awkward as I will explain. In preparation of arrival I read everything I could find about the campgrounds, reservations, and first-come-first-served sites, but I still did not fully understand how to get a site until failing to do so...

We had a reservation in Madison but switched to Norris (which you can't reserve) because it is smaller and seemed quieter and more centrally located. We were there early in the first week of June and recommend that timing as It wasn't crowded yet. A lot of the campsites cleared out on Sunday, so Sunday late morning might be a... More

Luckily we got one of the biggest sites and so had comfort and privacy. Many of the sites are close together and some are on slopes so try and get there early for a place. Facilities are ok, slightly more basic than some of the other campgrounds in the park. Nice sunsets from the lake close to the campground.

OK, it might of been our one time experience, but it was disappointing. We got there early to get a site. Mostly it was close crowding, and the choice spots are always at a premium. I'm glad we signed up for one night, even though we were thinking of staying 3 nights. We bugged out the following morning. We had... More

We visited after Laborious Day. Instead of lots on room as expected in was packed. Virtually no space between sites and no visual barriers. Late is the year it was a dust bowl. The is a much nicer and cheaper Forest Service CG outside the westpark gate (north about 8 miles) that we used. We would not even bother with... More

Flush toilets, running potable water. Even plugins in the restrooms. Great campground. We came the evening before our intended check-in date to scout out campsites that would come available the next morning. Look at the short markers by the sites for the "out #," with the number representing the date the campers leave. Bring a pen so you can make... More

My husband and I (and 2 lg dogs) decided to do a last minute 5 night trip to YS in a 20 ft rialta. It is difficult to plan a trip to such an enormous park on a drive from Denver but thanks to visitor center YS magazines, we found Norris. If you really want peace of mind and to... More
