"Camping in Yellowstone" just has that great American summer vacation ring to it. Packing the kids in the RV, cruising the open-highway stretches and setting your sights on a national park. Taking a break from your gadgets and plugging into nature is always a good idea. Recharge yourself and your family bond with the sounds of great horned owls and crickets, the smell of the campfire and the sight of an endless sky full of stars, whether you’re in a tent, camper or motorhome.
Yellowstone Park alone has over 12 campgrounds and 2,000 campsites, but they tend to book up fast in July and August. Reserve ahead of time at the campgrounds that allow it or show up early in the day to make one yours. If you’re interested in going deeper into the wild, Yellowstone has over 300 primitive backcountry campsites...just remember your backcountry permit, and be bear-aware.
There are also endless camping opportunities (and reasons to visit) all over Yellowstone Country, from the park’s gateway towns to its basecamp towns to the intriguing and unique small towns that complete the region.
