My adult son and I stayed here on Monday Night, August 5, 2013 during our 9 day Great Western Epic Mountain Bike and National Parks Adventure. It was crowded, but what do you expect from the most popular National Park. We noticed a large amount of international visitors. Not a problem, just an observation. We had a basic tent campsite with a fire ring and picnic table. We weren't too very far from the bathroom but it was a walk when you needed to go. (no going behind a tree here, waaaay too many eyes and ears). The bathroom was clean, small but adequate with two sinks, toilets and urinals. The bathroom building also had a deep sink for washing dishes, (sorry cold water only). The bear boxes sit in common locations to be shared. (Grand Teton's Colter Bay has one bear box per campsite which was nicer). The shower/laundry building lady was very nice and professional and the clean and hot shower area was very nice and much needed. The campground is close to the southern edge of Yellowstone Lake (which is HUGE) and has the geyser/bubbling mudholes nearby which are very interesting to see. (again, we saw more international visitors than Americans, in my opinion). We also visited Old Faithful and saw it blow. Stirring!. Great pics. Went inside the Old Faithful Inn, a place I had wanted to see since seeing it on a Wonderful World of Disney episode as a kid in the 60's/early 70's. Glad I did. Would love to stay there some time.
Lots of rules at the campground but with all the diversity and the essentially overcrowded conditions some stern rules are a must.
