We stayed at Tower for 2 nights. The campground is located on a long sloping hill, which means finding level ground can be hard for some. We have a very small RV and found a site, but ideally it's a tenting campground. The sites have a tent pad, fire pit, picnic table and bear box. The river runs by the... More

One of the best I have been in anywhere. The campground host was very good. She met us when we pulled up and kept the check in process orderly. This is a campground where you will need to be there very early to get a site. She kept the cars in order to keep the process truly first come.first served.... More

My only complaint about this campground was some young boys nearby were pretty loud from 10:00 - 11:00 PM the last few nights of our 5 night stay. Like Robert C noted, great location near Lamar Valley (beware of delays to bison on the road), Mammoth, and Canyon Village. Good ice cream at the general store that's a short walk... More

By far our favorite campground in Yellowstone that we have visited. Our first night the campground was filled and we ended up back at Mammoth but we got up early and got site 30. Our site was great. We had nice shade, a few trees which were perfect distance for our hammocks and each site has its own bearbox, picnic... More

We found this to be a very pleasant site. Especially nice was large, single site bear boxes. We got a spot at the top of the loop and didn't find the road noise any more onerous than it would be anywhere else. Tower has no running water facilities, which makes it more difficult to deal with cooking and cleaning up.... More

We stayed here one night, after having stayed at Indian Creek campground one night. Tower Fall Campground wasn't even close to as pleasant as Indian Creek. We moved simply because of the more central location of Tower, but when we got here around 9am, we found just about every campsite taken (mid-August), and very few were all that desireable. They...

THIS is what National Park camping is supposed to be! Small campground, size restriction on RV's, no hook ups, no generators allowed, and only $12. We stayed 3 nights in site #9 which is right at the edge of and overlooks Tower Creek. Campground hosts were very friendly, facilities were clean. Avoid the corporate Zanterra mega-sites and head to the... More

I was lucky to get level site #1, since I was sleeping in my campershell. Some of the other sites had erosion and were unlevel. There is a pay phone at site #1! The camp hosts are wonderful, although they were next door running a noisy air conditioner. The ridge above the campground makes for a great walk. The hike... More

We stayed one night at Tower Fall before heading south to Bay Bridge where we had reservations. I really wish we had stayed the entire 5 days at Tower Fall. The pit toilets are well maintained and even stocked with hand santizer. It's important to follow the food storage directions as there are bears in the area. Each campsite has... More

Tower Campground is in the Northeast section of the park. It is nicely located for visiting Mammoth, Canyon, the Lamar Valley and of course Tower Falls. It is a bit of a drive to get to Norris, Old Faithful and the Lake area but we managed it during a long day's excursion (about 12 hours with stops). Tower is a... More
