not to go to far off topic but...

Hmmm, am I the only one who likes to camp inside of Yellowstone, am I missing something here, or is it just the hookups and being able to stay more than 2 weeks?

Madison Campground is my personal favorite. After dinner I can grap a flyrod, walk across the medow and catch a few risers. It doesn't get any better then that!

Camping

Just outside of West is a beautiful camp ground called Buffalo. It is on the
river and only a couple miles from town. If you want RV parks there are
several in town.Check in Trailer Life or other camping book. Happy Trails

Question More info please

Thought I would resurect this thread. I am going to Yellowstone June 20th and am trying to decide what National park campgrounds to stay in.
Even though some campgrounds don't have a dump station don't they have a grey water dump in the restrooms? It looks like a giant toilet and is usually located in between the mens and womens sides of the building.

Also has anyone stayed at Norris campground? It is first come first served.

Any info is helpfull. Like how fast do the campgrounds fill in the third week of June? Personal recommendations, what campgrounds can accomodate a truck and 25ft trailer? Anyone ever made reservations for madison or canyon and how easy was the reservation prosess?

Reservations hard to get..

I think the reason most people choose to stay outside the park is split between those who value hookups and those who can't get reservations... Very rare to find openings during summer season inside the park on short notice, and reservations hard to get in advance... There is a great KOA on river just north of the park, as well as several private campgrounds east of the park on road out towards Graybull and Cody...

I suggest that you go to yellowstonepark.com website, read the info they have there on campgrounds, then telephone them for your reservations, and ask your specific questons.

It's very easy to make a reservation, assuming there are still some sites available. This can be rather late to make reservations for some weeks in the peak season, but you may still be okay for the end of June.

I've never stayed in Norris; it wouldn't be my choice for trailer camping, since it's somewhat of the beaten path unless there's something specifically there that you want to do in the area.

My personal choice of Park campgrounds is Grants Village, and I'm pretty sure they have sites big enough for your trailer, although I've just tented there, in a normal tent and in a popup tent camper.

I've also stayed in Madison, but also just in a tent, so I can't say for sure that they have a dump station, but I'm almost certain they do, and if they do, the others that take reservations would also. Ask when you call for your reservations.

If you do stay at one of the campgrounds that are on a first come first serve (as I believe Norris would be) make sure you get there early in the morning so you have a shot at getting a site. The earlier, the better. A lot of them can get filled for the day by mid-morning, and it's no fun at all driving the rest of the day in heavy traffic trying to find another place to stay.

Too late for reservations

Well I made the call to Xantera for reservations inside yellowstone and nothing is available for my size trailer for the dates I wanted. Soooooo

I booked a site at Grizzly Rv park in west yellowstone for $47 a night ouch! But I am going to have full hookups and cable tv . And a spot when I get there.

Anyone stayed at Grizzly Rv recently? Any comments good or Bad? It looked good on the web.

I also get an Annual Pass every year. Even if I only use it one time. The NPS sure can use the revenue.
