“Excellent base for visiting main thermal areas”

Reviewed Sep 08, 2018

Overall Rating

Madison is a large, reservation-only campground that is well located within Yellowstone to take in the major thermal basins from Norris through West Thumb, including the Old Faithful area. Other parts of the park are also within reach, depending on your tolerance for long drives. Note that reservations can be made over a year in ad... more

“No first come first served for RV's and Trailers during peak season”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2018

Overall Rating

We were thwarted by this campground and just wanted to share our experience so that others don't get burned in the same way. We were aware that this was one of the Yellowstone campgrounds that was reservable in advance. However, while looking at the NPS Yellowstone site in the days leading up to our arrival in Yellowstone, we got the... more

“Popular Spot, Centrally Located.”

Reviewed Aug 05, 2018

Overall Rating

The popular Madison Campground was very clean and nice. Our spot was on the edge of the campground and had a good amount of privacy, I would say most sites however don’t offer that much as they are fairly close together. The check in was VERY busy and despite dealing with tons of people, the workers were very pleasant and extremely... more

“Nice Campground, centrally located. ”

Reviewed Oct 28, 2017

Overall Rating

Unfortunately you can't reserve a site ahead of time, otherwise I'd tell you to get site 183. It was huge! Check-in took about 15 minutes. They have an on-demand ice vending machine. That's it for things to purchase. No showers, laundry or store. They do have a dump station. If you need water, spigots in the CG don't have threads so yo... more

“Nice.”

Reviewed Apr 16, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed in Madison because it was centrally located. Nice setting under tall pine trees. No hookups and no camp store but they have an ice machine, water and dump station. It's about 16 miles north of Old Faithful. I would highly recommend eating at the Old Faithful Inn. It's beautiful inside and the food was good and prices decent.

“A pretty campground in the forest most convenient to Old Faithful”

Reviewed May 22, 2015

Overall Rating

We have been to three of the seven Yellowstone National Park campgrounds. This is the prettiest setting, amidst a lodgepole pine forest, with trails to the Madison River just a few steps away. They only offer dry camping and the sites are very nice, however, they are limited for big rigs. Even our site, which was a pull-through, seemed... more

“One of the best in Yellowstone”

Reviewed May 16, 2015

Overall Rating

Having stayed in 7 of the campgrounds in Yellowstone, I would have to say, this is one of the best. The sites are well laid out, plenty of room in between each site. The area is pristine and you are surrounded by beautiful pine trees - it's an idylic setting. The restrooms are clean and well looked after. Be aware that the dump site is... more
