Lovely place to park yourself whilst visiting Yellowstone National Park. Surrounded by nature and kept alert trying to spot any wild animals. Bays are separated, quiet at night and easy to set off for the next day's touring.

We stayed in the upper part of this campground for 3 nights in July. We have a 28 ft motorhome, so we were in a bigger spot. The area was well wooded and had a fire pit and picnic table. The problem was that both of our sites were very unlevel, to the point of not being level with 4...

Our site was in the lower section of the campground, near the main entrance. Very little privacy, in fact, it felt like we were camping in a field. However, we were visiting during peak tourist season and were just happy to have a campsite. At least the bathrooms were clean. If staying here, try to get a wooded site for...

Another longer than necessary check in, but the site (Loop E) was great. Overlooking a large meadow and Kake Yellowstone, the site was separated from others by large trees and grassy areas. Protected from winds, and located close to Fishing Bridge stores as well as all the excitement of Hayden Valley wildlife. Only thing holding back from 5 of 5...

It's a nice camping, pretty cheap and well organized. Each spot is reasonably sized and bathrooms are okay. It is just ridiculous that there are no showers and it is necessary to drive 4 miles to have one!

I stayed at Bridge Bay campground as a kid and remember being disillusioned -- as I drove across the good old USA I had imagined the Bridge Bay campground as a pristine wilderness with rushing rivers and mountain views . . . it turned out to be more like a crowded parking lot. Well, fast forward 30 years, and little...

As we read from previous reviews, we requested a upper camp site, loop I. It was in the woods and we pitched our tent right under two pine trees which blocked the rain for us too. We woke up to 6 muledeer one morning it was pretty awesome! Bathrooms are very clean with hand soap and hand dryer. Nice enclosed...

I camped at 3 different sites during my recent trip and this was by far my least favorite of the 3. I am not sure if it was because it was the largest, or the cheapest (showers were not included in the rate here as they were at the others, but as the title indicates it was busy. Tents felt...

We camped here 3 nights in June, 2015. I am not a camper , but was pleasantly surprised that I had fun. This was a perfect way to visit Yellowstone and not spend a fortune! The campground was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The restrooms were always clean and the campground was quiet at night. I...

We stayed here two nights--July 3 & 4, 2015. The campground is okay, the bathrooms were clean most of the day (though people using them could do a better job cleaning up after themselves, which is not the fault of the staff), and some sites were shaded and level. Our site was neither shaded nor very level, with big holes...
