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.
