I got here about 730 and waited in line almost an hour for a spot. The campgrounds were nice and spacious so there was a feeling of privacy. No amenities besides bathrooms and water. No cell service at all or showers. I stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it. Great base for exploring yellowstone.

This campground is so fantastic. The sites are far enough apart to have some privacy and each site has a picnic table, food storage locker, and campfire pot thing. I could hear all of the bears grunting at night! So cool. The only thing is I wish they had more restrooms.

If you're like me and you find yourself with a week's vacation but failed to make camping reservations months ago, Norris Campground is perfect because it truly is available on a first-come-first serve basis. The way it works is straight forward. You'll turn off into the campground drive at 6:00 a.m. and see vehicles already lined up. You'll park behind... More

This camp site works on a first come basis and does not take reservations. To ensure you stand a chance of getting a site you must arrive at least by 7am to the campsite and get immediately in line at the registration office. The office opens at 8am and is organised by very efficient, friendly staff. The campsite itself has... More

The campground was nice and though spaces can be small, we didn't feel too crowded. Lots of bison roaming around at the entrance. Lots were wooded and toilets for the most part were clean and maintained. It is essential to get there early in the morning and be prepared to wait in line for a space. Check out is not... More

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
