Description

Nice small campground not far from Gardiner. The camp hosts are very friendly. This is about 10 minutes from the north entrance of Yellowstone.
This is dry camping only with bear storage boxes for tent campers. There is a vault toilet.

Latest Check-Ins

Spent one night here, a pleasant campground up a winding washboard road. Variable 1-3 bars Verizon, sometimes too weak for Google Maps to route to next stop.
We stayed in site 3. All are grassy, like a mowed and watered lawn, and site 12 is muddy.
If you're in the Gardiner area in early afternoon, consider Canyon Campground as an alternative to avoid the washboard road.

Great campground, site 19 has view of Yellowstone! Oct 3-Dec 31 all sites are FF. Careful, the micro piece of paper used to pay for the site might be missed by an innocent arrival. No need to bang on their door yelling at 9pm, there are other sites available/innocent error. From a friend - wink!

The camp host left for the season leaving a mess. They updated the reservation cards at each site and just left. People arriving to find sites with no updates on the cards indicating the site was open when others had reservations with recreation.gov. So many sites were double booked and people were mad - and well justified. If you have AT&T like we do, there is no signal to check the rec.gov if the camp host has decided to check out for the year. Best to grab one of the equestrian sites that are first come/first served and not worry about being part of this fiasco.

Prime place to stay outside Yellowstone. Beautiful view of the road into Yellowstone especially at night with folks driving in and out. Quiet and just in general a great spot to stay at, hoping to be back again!

As previously stated. Nice campground. Host Brenda is awesome. Elk right in camp. Great Verizon service. Pit toilets and close to town. All kinds of rigs around. Road had washboards but go slow and you should be fine.

Biting flies are the putts man. Hard to be outside unless it’s windy.

Lucked into a campsite for the one night we needed on our way out of Yellowstone. Friendly hosts, grass sites with plenty of space and $15. Perfect.

Nice spot! Just 20 sites, high above Gardiner. Clean pit toilets and friendly fellow travelers. Great sunset views.

Pretty much as the other posts, basic site with pit toilets, friendly hosts, we couldn’t get any meaningful cell coverage on Google Fi. We were swamped with bluebottle flies which spoilt our stay but perhaps that’s a one off……

Nice quiet campground. $15 use fee at a self pay station. I came before the site had reservations and it was first come first serve. All the pull outs I passed along the road up here and past had been marked no camping. There is a vault toilet, tent sites, plenty of room for rvs, bear boxes for food, picnic tables, and fire rings. Cell service really sucks going from 1 bar to no service. Forest service road up was in great shape.

Got here around 3:30/4. Nice older couples lounging outside their RVs. Were at least 5 spots left and a deer skull on my site. Not much shade but i parked my RV so it blocked the sun and it cooled it off. But the hill getting here challenged my v8. Not experiencing too many bugs as mentioned in previous comments and I’m typically a gnat snack.

Apparently there was a grizzly siting a couple days ago so I’ll prob go inside once it gets dark.

Awesome spot. Here on a Wednesday, it is about 95% full at 9PM. Friendly camp hosts and nice spots, each on grass with a picnic table. Beautiful scenery! Found a dead rattle snake in our site which is a little concerning. Would definitely stay here again.

Basic campground, cheaper than all campgrounds in Yellowstone. No water or electricity. Just pit toilets

Very nice campground. Lots of free spots when I visited and just outside the north entrance to Yellowstone. Very clean bathrooms.
No t-mobile signal but signal not too far on the way up to the campgrounds.

Nice small place, $15 night or $7.50 w/ interagency pass. Good Verizon, no AT&T

Don't underestimate the trailhead that is at the top of the campground. 3 mi down to the river and some history along the route. Was surprisingly beautiful!

Nice campground but the biting flies are oppressive, it would be impossible to spend the day at this campground.

Great small campground just outside Gardiner, MT and the north entrance to Yellowstone. Views across the valley of Mammoth Hot Springs. Fee is up to $15/night this year. There are two of the sites designated for double occupancy that run $30/night regardless of if you are doubled or not. There are two sites with equestrian corrals, too. We got the second to last campsite at 2pm the first week of June on a Monday. We've been here three nights. There's been turnover every day but the campground has been full every night we've been here. Elk in camp yesterday and the campground host made sure to point out that there has been several bear sightings near camp so far this year. Bear boxes are provided at each site, so be sure to use them!

Don't let Google maps fool you, this isn't a hard place to get to. It's on a gravel road with a 6-8% grade going up about 2 miles. It's wide enough for two vehicles to pass and isn't bad if it's raining. There is a sign that asks to put your vehicle into 4WD prior to ascending so they can reduce the washboard effect on the road. We had absolutely no issues getting our 42' 5th wheel up to this location. We had several friends with 5th wheels, 32' and 28' class C, and one class A get up without issue as well.

The campground is snug, but the sites are huge. We were able to get a couple campers in several of the sites while still following the 3 car limit. There are a couple horse camping sites up top with stock areas. Camping here will cost you about $7/night and is well worth it.
There is a vault toilet onsite, but no water. Each site has a campfire ring, but they don't sell wood. There are bear boxes at each site for storing food items if you choose to tent camp.

This is an excellent location to get into northern Yellowstone. It's about 30 minutes from the Mammoth Hot Springs. There are a lot of great places to eat in Gardiner which is about 10 minutes away. There's also a lot of outdoor activity offerings in Gardiner. There was good Verizon and ATT coverage. We were able to watch Netflix, Face-time, and have video calls for work.

Arrived in the dark. Seems nice tonight. I’m at site 4 with water gurgling by. Was glad to find the campground still open.
Didn’t see the interagency discount ($3.50 with discount) before paying but $7 is still pretty cheap as far as campgrounds go these days.

This is a very nice place, alternative to an expensive place in the Yellowstone N.P. 13 spaces, no potable water. We had bisons and elks near our car.

Nice small campground not far from Gardiner. Robert, the camp host is very friendly and knows some nice hikes around this place. A good alternative to the crowded campgrounds in the national park. $7
