We arrived to Norris Campground around 6:30 am. Early bird gets the worm - we got the best campsite we could ask for. In the lower loop and it overlooked a meadow and a winding river. The view was the best we could ask for and the campsite was just perfect. Upper loops offer sites nestled in the woods and... More

Norris is a great campground for tent camping..Most of the sites are surrounded by pines, all have picnic table, grill. Many have back-in area big enough for medium sized trailer or van. only a FEW pull throughs, and those are taken REALLY quickly. The roads around the camp are hilly, tight turns. Really not good for long trailers or RVs.... More

Very tight campground on uneven terrain. Sites are small but feel isolated because the trees are dense. Great for tent camping; RVs and trailers may have difficulty with some of the spaces. Restrooms have running water and a cleaning sink. No showers.

My brother and I pulled in late one Thursday night off-season. The sign said the camp was all full but the host directed us to the walk-in sites in loop A. They weren't close to each other at all and were well-graded and nice. There were tall evergreens all around and a nice view in the morning. No showers but... More

The check in process is horrendous! The location is central and really nice once you have secured a site. The price is amazing (compared to the hotel prices). After staying there, we were still glad we stayed at this location even with the hassles of check in but it could be SO MUCH BETTER with an improved check-in system. Our... More

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
