A friend and I decided to camp at Slough Creek on a recent trip to Yellowstone. I was skeptical that we would secure a site but we arrived to the campground around 7am on a Friday during peak season and there were two sites available! We settled on site 8 on the in-field. The major downside to this site was... More

I think our family will always remember our stay at this special campground. The campsites are all beautiful and right along a burbling creek. We got to fall asleep to and wake up to that sound every day. Our goal for our Yellowstone trip was to see wildlife, and this campground delivered. We saw deer, a mother bear with two... More

We had never camped before and we took a chance on slough creek as we wanted to be near the wildlife. We had the BEST family holiday ever!! Our eight year old loved it more than Disneyland. We stayed at site #11 and loved how we backed onto the creek. It was so peaceful and quiet. The vault toilets were... More

I had heard from former reviews to get to this campground early, but when i talked to a ranger the day before we were to head there, he said it wasn't full until 1pm the day before. I guess that must have been when the campground host reported, because we showed up at 10 am the next day and it... More

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in June 2013, and we were lucky enough to have Site 3, right along the creek. I had read in online reviews that Slough Creek is a great campground, but we had never stayed here before. We had camped in the Canyon area of the park previously, which is very large,... More

We just finished a 2 1/2 week stay at Slough Creek Campground. Words and pictures cannot do justice to this place! It is small and "rustic" with only vault toilets for "facilities", but the vault toilets are clean and except for perhaps 2 times when we used the toilets, they were odorless. We had site #1 which is a large... More

It's hard for tent campers to find a place in Yellowstone that isn't overrun with RVs. That's the main reason why Slough Creek is my favorite camp in the park. We stayed there three nights in early September, and 80 percent of the campers were fellow tenters. The best sites for tenters are "walk-in" designated and along the creek (sites... More

In June I was at Slough before 7 am to nab the first vacant spot. There is an approximately 2 mile washboard,dirt road into the campground, which is located conveniently near Lamar valley for great wildlife viewing, especially seeing wolves. I saw badgers along the entrance road. There is a beautiful fisherman's and walker's path along the creek which I... More

This campground was great! Get there between 8am and noon if you want a spot. If you see anyone breaking down their site just politely ask if they are leaving and then grab one of the reservation tags and clip it to the pole on the site. There is a constant but non-invasive ranger presence and they are all friendly.... More

We stayed in Yellowstone for a week in July of 2011... we live in Michigan and drove there nonstop for 23 hours so when we finally got to Montana (6:00 am) we just headed for the nearest campground we could find so we could finally rest, which happened to be Slough Creek... The campground was full when we got there,... More
