This campround is nice but be prepared to be awakened by cars early in the morning and late at night. This is also the hottest part of the park so prepare for warm nights. This campground is the only one in Yellowstone that is open year round. Campsites are well spaced out.

Stayed here 2 nights in June. The campsites are pretty well spaced from one another, which was a huge bonus over Madison Campground. There isn't much tree cover, so you're pretty exposed amongst the sage brush. Some sites (like ours) is fairly close to the road up to Mammoth Lodge, so it can make for an early morning wake-up as traffic picks up. The campground hosts were very friendly. Elk roam throughout the campground, and we even witnessed a black bear hunt down an elk calf 100 yards from our site. The location is great because it is a nice drive through the north section of the park to Lamar valley. Also, the campground is 1/4 mile from Mammoth Lodge area with gas/general store/showers. Also, some nice trails near-by.

we use to live in cody wy and camped at this campground many times over the years it is our favorite of all the campgrounds in ynp the restrooms are always clean the rangers and camphosts are always friendly and very informative and the elk walking through the campgrounds is always an added treat and the small town of mammoth is also very nice and clean with a lot of things to see and do there and also gardnier mt is another great little town just out side the park the scenery is beautiful just a great place to be.

We thought the check in was easier then the other park campgrounds.
14.00 per night
Two park volunteers seemed more interested in our park experience .
Yes , they take credit cards. Also, if not too full, they let you pick a spot first,
then pay. We had elk walking through the two nights there.

The campground is just below Mammoth Springs, but easy walk to shop , post office,
information and cafe. Gardiner was only 5miles, took us 10 minutes tops.
We found Subway on hwy 89 ,just across the bridge, to be a good value.
But beware ,the restaurants in Gardiner are not cheap! Food supermarket just one block north of Subway.
Although closed during our visit, Boiling river hotsprings is next to the campground,
about 15min walk. Offers vistor only legal place to soak in natural thermal water.
Restrooms were clean and had a electric hand dryer, which was great source of
drying out my socks. We had 2 tents which were not designed for the wind and rain
we experienced both nights .

Even with the bad weather, the opportunity to camp 2 nights at Yellowstone,
and see the wildlife, and the shades of color throughout the day( it was nearly longest day of the year) was a very memorable experience.
