Stayed at Grant Village Campground over the 4th of July holiday. Used a tent for 3 nights. We've stayed at many similar campgrounds with average experiences. I was thoroughly impressed with Grant Village Campgrounds. Not only was our reservation handled promptly and professionaly, the site itself was in perfect condition when we arrived. The facilites nearby were very clean and well maintained. The area is close enough to the lake, yet far enough were the mosquitos don't bother you too much. "Old Faithful" is only a 20 minute drive away. The grounds were large enough to accomodate large families, as well as small couples.

Our stay at Norris Campground was nice. The area is beautiful and the lots were well wooded. There is a wonderful little stream that people trout fish in and there are elk and buffalo all around. Like most of the park, the campground is full most of the time and the days we spent there were no exception. Get there early or you will not get a spot. The campgrounds have flush toilets and running water but no showers. There is also no electricity hook ups which is common in the national parks. Norris Geyser Basin Trail is right down the road about 1/4 mile and is well worth the visit.

Stayed in Canyon Campground. I spent 5 days and 4 nights at Canyonlands and loved every minute of it. The campsite was clean and the friendly site managers walked the campground daily looking to be of service to all campers. Evening park ranger talks at the ampitheater were very informative. You need all the info and suggestions about the park you can get! Each day was like a separate vacation. So much striking scenery, animals, vegetation and the water. Lakes, rivers, falls, springs, geysers geothermic pools of every description. Swimming, wading, fly fishing or just lounging in geothermicaly warmed streams. Phew! The snow capped mountains and broad colorful meadows splashed with wildflowers and greenery. At the end of each day a badly needed and greatly appreciated hot shower would be available at the campcenter. The evening would be capped with a warming and relaxing campfire. Early to bed and early to rise with that morning camp coffee. Mmmmmmmm the smells. No TV or radio to interfere with all that nature offers. Old faithful was something to see but the old lodge there was also a significant attraction. I'm definitely going back to hike on trails and enjoy Yellowstone again... See ya there!!!

Stayed in Slough Creek Campground. Camp above the river if you are staying at the Campground, the higher the number the better. Only plan on hiking back to the 2nd & 3rd meadow if you are in excellent shape. All reviews say it is an easy hike, but it is much more difficult than promoted. Fishing is for the extremly experienced. Only 2 fish caught by 8 of us that hiked back for 2 days. Pretty area, but not worth the hike at all. Many more places just as good, closer to the road.

Stayed in Mammoth Campground. 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.

Stayed in Indian Creek Campground. This small campground is, in my opinion, Yellowstone's best-kept secret. Rarely full, this small camground is not run by the big concessionaire, Xterra, that runs all the big campgrounds in the park. This campground is in a great location, near lots of hiking. The campground even has hiking trails in and around it that go back fifty or sixty years. Views of the mountains in many sites. Vault toilets, water in spigots, no frills, but a great, great experience.
