Good location right along Grand Loop Road and in walking distance of the Norris Basin. Make sure to be there early, as the campground usually fills up by 9 am at the latest, and there normally is a long waiting line (no reservations). The campground offers clean bathrooms with flush toilets and a dish sink; no showers, but that is... More

Excellent central location for a no-reservation campground. Enter the west entrance of YNP for this campground. We were there on the Wednesday before the 4th of July weekend 2016 at 5:20am and were second in line. More than 18 campsites available that day. Were told that some in line the day before had to be turned away. Do not look... More

Very well located, it is a typical nice National Park campground. No reservations, so one needs to be there early in the morning to find a site. Good for tents, although it could be cold...Many sites are in the shade. The lower loop is open on the meadows, and often animals come across the campground. The upper loop is more... More

Get here by 9 a.m. To get a campsite. It is worth the early rise to get your spot. This campground is centrally located in the park. It is quiet and beautiful. The bison visit regularly and there is a stream for fly fishing.

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...
