“Nice central location ”

Reviewed Nov 08, 2017

Overall Rating

A nice location as it’s one of the more centrally located ones in the park. It’s first come first serve which we knew about in advance. We were actually camping in Teton Natl. Park and got up at 3:30 am to drive 2 hours to Norris and when we arrived at 6am was still 10th in line for a site. Fortunately about 25 vacancies opened up that day. This was during the peak time of about the third week of July 2016.

Tent camping, which we did is easy but a lot of the sites would require significant leveling for RVs. There’s an interesting interpretive center about 200 yards away that gives a nice history lesson on the early days of rangers in the park. Also rangers give talks in the evening.

Bear boxes are in every site and rangers will make sure food is either in the boxes or in a vehicle as bear can come into the campground as well as bison.

Be aware that when the breeze blows from the southwest you can get a whiff of sulfur smell from the geyser basin a couple of miles away but it’s not too bad.

The restroom is clean but no showers.
Overall a good campground and good experience.

“Great NPS campground”

Reviewed Sep 09, 2015

Overall Rating

We dry camped in tent area. Good access point in a huge park. Wood available as well as a few other souveniers from a vendor. Loop a had plat sites for small rigs, other loops were a bit tighter and not level as first glance but htere were many people all over the area. First come first served.

Good ranger programs by campfire a t night.

On Site ranger museum. Very attentive hosts that keep things working smoothly. Would stay here again. Centrally located in a very big park. Had a walking trail to a hot springs basin - one of hte best in the park!

no cell service. not much in the park to begin with.
