We arrived at Yellowstone too late in the day to get any campsite in the park (even in September) so we drove out the northeast entrance and got a campsite at the first available USFS campground. This campground is around 7400 feet and is set right below the Beartooth Hwy on a hill above Soda Butte Creek. There was noticeable traffic noise during the day but it was very quiet at night. There are 16 sites which were nearly all empty when we arrived at 1:30 pm but were all full by sundown. The sites are in the trees, somewhat separated but not private. There are no hookups, no cell service (Verizon) and our site had no possibility of getting satellite tv.

If the Lamar Valley is the part of the park you want to visit then Soda Butte is fairly convenient, about a 35 minute drive to the valley. However it makes for long distances to anywhere else in the park.

Price listed includes our 50% senior discount.
