The Lewis Lake is right here and it is soooo beautiful!. It has a ramp for your boat, the campground gets very crowded during this time and is fine, but it is dry camping. I think it does not take RV's bigger than 24". This campground is 15 minutes away from Grant Village on the way out of the park.

We stayed for 2 nights in a tent. There are a couple of water spouts and primitive bathrooms. No running water or showers. Knowing this going in, it was very nice. Lots of trees separating us from the neighboring sites. Bear boxes and fire pits with grates were available. It was very quiet except for the coyotes we heard! It... More

Me and my family stayed here one night. Overall the campground is nice and quite. Very relaxing as its away from most of the tourist spots in Yellowstone. Not too far but far away enough where you don't deal with too many people. The sites are a bit close together though so be prepared for that. If you have considerate... More

The bathrooms are very poorly maintained; the campsites are right on top of one another; the first come first serve system is basically annoying if you're moving throughout the parks and trying to plan your visit. avoid staying here, though a visit to lewis lake and a hike down the outlet stream to the falls is worth it, for sure....

Tented at this campsite. I felt like there wasn't enough bathrooms/water spigots/garbage disposal for the amount of people who were staying here. Bathroom closest to us was filthy, and the next morning when they came to clean it, it smelled so badly of ammonia I almost passed out. Lewis Lake is wonderful though!

very quiet campground with many trees for privacy. great campground for tents and small pop-up campers. when you do pick your campsite, set up camp immediately as we noticed another camper remove a reserve tag from a campsite and move right in!

Lewis Lake offers dry camping on the road to the South entrance within Yellowstone. It is adjacent to a boat launch if you're a fisherman. The signs say maximum 25 ft RV, and I'd say this is accurate. We found a good level site for our 23 footer, and passed several others that would have been good options. There is... More

We stayed at Lewis campground for 2 nights. It's a quiet spot with much more privacy than many other campgrounds in Yellowstone. Our site had a fire pit and a picnic table, bear box and many trees surrounded the site and gave us privacy. Just a short walk to a vault toilet and water tap. The lake is not far,... More

Took a group of scouts to Yellowstone for 3 days leading up to July 4th. By the time we decided to go, all of the reserve able sites in Yellowstone were booked. Took a chance on finding a site in Lewis Lake campground and were pleasantly surprised. Drove in early (a must to get a site) and got two beautiful... More

This campground isn't bad but has a couple significant drawbacks. The first is that the campground is on a hill mostly overlooking the south entrance road, so you can hear (and see) traffic until late at night, and early in the morning. I looped the campsite a few times to find something without this issue but just couldn't find a... More
