The previous reviewer has some wrong info. The rate at this CG is $29.60 w/tax, and half price for people with certain passes. It is centrally located in the Park,m but built on the side of a mountain and not for today's RVs. Your best hope is to make a reservation for a long site and arrive early afternoon for the site assignment. If it is too unlevel or treed, find a better one and ask for that . The tent sites looked pretty good for tenters. Bathroom bldgs are updated with recycling bins, and hot showers and laundry mat are nearby. Remember it's at 7900' and will be cold at night. You are there for the scenery and wildlife. Don't bring a big rig here. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

They couldn't get the sites any smaller or closer together. Personally, I will never go back. My 20' travel trailer barely fit in the space and I had to park my tow vehicle across the site partially in the road or give up the use of my awning. There were some good things about the campground. Laundry facilities were clean with plenty of washers and dryers. Showers were clean but they are located at the main office rather than in the actual campground. The only purpose of not locating them at the campground is they wouldn't be able to charge for their use (2 free showers per night per paid campsite) by those not camping in the campground. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Very pleasant check in and lovely site. Stayed 2 nights at Loop L 276, and it was level. Surprisingly we could use our AT&T phone for calls, and our Verizon ipad could be used sporadically for simple texting. Dish satellite didn't work because of the trees. We were going to stay 3 nights, but had to leave after 2 since the high altitude was bothering my husband. We would love to stay there again, but won't because of the altitude. It was $14 with tax and with using our Gold Park Pass card. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Great campground in a beautiful setting! My only complaint was having to walk fairly far to the showers, but I found a path through the campground instead of the road and that made it shorter. Very friendly staff, beautiful setting. Plus I got the senior discount as I always do in an NPS campground, We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Our site was level. There was only room for our trailer and then the tow vehicle parked next to the trailer. It was very cramped. The picnic table was on a hill which made it difficult to sit on. the restaurants and gift stores were convenient. There was a bear roaming in the campground (we never saw it) so we were warned multiple times by park service staff to make sure all food/odors were in our tow vehicle. The rangers did patrol the park through the night to watch for bears. The showers are in a shower house with the laundry facility and run about $3.25 a shower with unlimited amount of water. The restrooms lacked soap all three days/nights we were there. We did not have Verizon service at all in the area. All the sites were shaded with pine trees.

This was our favorite Xanterra managed campground in Yellowstone (we stayed in three). The sites are all wooded and private, with a lot of space to spread out. No hookups here, but Verizon phone service was available at some sites (not ours) and at the check-in/laundry building. There are not many sites for larger units (ours is a 31 foot motorhome), so you may need to call ahead. Our site was pull through, most were back-in. I have to give Xanterra a 10 plus rating for helping us change our reservations from Fishing Bridge to two other parks for our stay. They were exceedingly helpful. This campground is steps away from the Yellowstone Canyon area, and steps away from the visitor's center and Canyon area supply stores. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Huge campground with most of the RV sites in the northern loops. Sites are wooded, many are pull-through. Cold water only in the restrooms. Pine trees, birds, convenient to the Canyon section of the park but not easy to walk to places. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We really loved the central location but felt this was a bit too busy at times. It's VERY convenient for food, gear and gas, and also it's great since it's right by the big falls. A bit too congested in July though. The forest is lovely and you are also close to Mt. Washburn, which is good for bears. We would stay here again, but not during peak times.

A real campground! Bugs, wildlife, trees, campfire pits, campsites nicely spread out, no phone, no wi-fi. Great base for exploring the park. Restrooms clean and had a separate room to wash dishes (cold water). Worked out well to really be on vacation with our little antique trailer. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Nice heavily wooded campground. Good base to explore Yellowstone. Next time, though, we would move to different campgrounds to eliminate so much driving. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

Excellent campground. Gotta be the best in Yellowstone. The sites were well spaced. Just make sure you are on a loop (we like loop J) and not along the access roads. Only things that were a hassle were that the dump station was closed/removed and the showers at the entrance were outrageously priced ($3.25). The staff enforces the trash/food restrictions with a vengeance. Highly recommended. We camped at Canyon Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
