“beautiful area but noisy”
Big Springs is an amazing area and has some great scenery just outside of Yellowstone National Park. The campground is down a well maintained but washboarded and dusty dirt road. Lots of traffic through the area in the daytime with the spring that forms Henry's Fork of the Snake River being just a short walk away from camp. Johnny Sack's cabin is also located in the area and is worth a visit if you're visiting in the day - Johnny was a pioneer in the area whose hand built home is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
The camp itself is fairly clean. Water is available and pit toilets. No trash service. Dirt road and dirt parking sites. No bear boxes which is a surprise for this area. Most sites are shady. Camp tends to be fairly noisy due to proximity to the road and during my last stay my neighbors kept their generator running 16 hours a day. ATVs are not allowed in camp and there is a parking area for such vehicles near the entrance. There is a camp host on site. The host has firewood for sale if needed or you can take a short walk just south of the camp to cut your own.
