Took a group of scouts to Yellowstone for 3 days leading up to July 4th. By the time we decided to go, all of the reserve able sites in Yellowstone were booked. Took a chance on finding a site in Lewis Lake campground and were pleasantly surprised. Drove in early (a must to get a site) and got two beautiful... More

This campground isn't bad but has a couple significant drawbacks. The first is that the campground is on a hill mostly overlooking the south entrance road, so you can hear (and see) traffic until late at night, and early in the morning. I looped the campsite a few times to find something without this issue but just couldn't find a... More

Lewis Lake campground is a very scenic, forest camping experience far enough from civilization to get some peace and quiet. The night sky is amazing! But the rules of the campground are rarely enforced. We had to contend with someone blasting their radio, a generator running every night (no gens allowed at Lewis Lake), and a disturbing wakeup call each... More

Lets get real here. This isn't a place for those who want all the extras and goodies to make them feel like they aren't camping. This is very basic. But on our trip it was less crowded than the other campgrounds that are smaller and suitable for tent camping. Sites were not so close, and had some screening. At night... More

This campground is much more quiet than a lot of the other campgrounds in Yellowstone because there are not that many sites. Several of the tent only sites are right on the access road which probably would have been annoying but we had a great one that had enough trees so we couldn't see any of the other sites. We...

It was the last campground open in the park. Was pouring rain when we got there. We got an ok site but most don't have tent pads and are on sloping ground (here comes the water....). They have an unenforced noise policy between 10 and 6 (no rv generators). We were up all night with cars driving through and generators... More

Decent location but primitive with little tent space. If you have a wife that cares about bathroom quality this is not the place to go. Bathroom was horrible. We had reservations at Grant but decided to check out Lewis Lake first. Left wife and kids here and went on to Grant to check out our campsite there. Grant site was... More

A great place to tent. Primitive facilities, meaning a block outhouse, no bath house. There is a good water source located at the main entrance. You are close to a park shower facility where for $3.50 you can get a hot shower and a park store for groceries, gas and souvenirs. Every night we heard the wolves and mornings elk.

We tent camped here our first few nights in Yellowstone. The sites are way too close to each other. It looked like they tried to fit as many in as they could. It was very noisy. There were sites free when we arrived, but there were people driving around at all hours trying to find sites. My daughter and I... More

We didn't get a chance to stay here because it was full, but I'm not so disappointed because the campsites were very small. We went south to Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch and stayed at the campground, which was a little roomier and did have many more services available, including a free site!
