“Great dry camping right outside Yellowstone's North entrance ”

Reviewed Nov 09, 2017

Overall Rating

Beautiful views from this scenic campground right outside Yellowstone. First come, first serve sites. Some sites have animal pens - horse camping? There were pit toilets that were clean. Easy access to downtown Gardiner.

“Great campground for the price near Yellowstone National Park, North Entrance”

Reviewed Jun 05, 2016

Overall Rating

Most sites are grassy and may not be very level, but all will be doable with some plastic leveling tiles and/or positioning of your tongue jack. There is no privacy between sites but for the most part are spaced far enough apart that you are not right on top of your neighbors. To get to the campground, look for the small sign near Kremer C-Store in Gardiner. From there it is roughly a 2+ mile climb on a dirt road to the entrance. The road from Kremer's is dirt with a few switchbacks. I was here in June 2016, and the campground was full every night and many times before 4 p.m. This is a good option for an overnight stop to get a jump into Yellowstone NP to secure a non-reservable site in the N.P. or even to stay here (you can't beat the cost of $7.00, S/A 1/2 off) and explore the park from here (the North entrance is right in Gardiner and then a 5 mile trip to Mammoth Hot Springs area). Due to the size, the campground was quiet at night. Most of the sites will fit a travel trailer and a few will fit a bigger beast. Just to give you an idea, the campground host had a Class A with a toad that he pulled up here. Verizon is great - 3-4 bars LTE. None of the sites are reservable. I believe the best site is the one that you will see first upon turning into the campground road (one-way narrow road), site #1. It will be however the furtherest from any vault toilet.

There is no water or dump station at this park and only vault toilets.
