Stayed in Loop A; friendly staff. The website says there are no utilities but we saw that some sites had water and electric, not sure about sewer. Maybe these sites were for sites for the campground hosts. Beautiful setting, nice pull thru and back in sites; our pull thru site was level perfect, and somewhat private. Quiet with very little hwy noise. No Verizon signal, even with a booster, but we knew that going in. We had no hookups, but would stay there again anyway. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The previous reviews are still accurate. Make sure you are honest about the length of all vehicles. Calling in a reservation is better than online for this campground. The rep will make sure your rig will fit the tight sites. We loved the short walk to the trout stream and the nightly Ranger talks. Very clean camp and friendly staff. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground, all dry camping. Checking in was a breeze and the staff was super-friendly. We even got the 'bear lecture' at no extra charge. Had a pull through site right off of the main thoroughfare, which was a little tricky to negotiate with the trees and the slides. We finally figured it out though, after a lot of trial and error. Site was level and had a picnic table and fire pit. They have a strict no generator rule after 8 p.m., which is nice to keep the campground quiet. Have to keep the dogs off trails, but there was ample space to walk him on the pavement around the park. Plenty of space between us and our neighbors, so we never felt crowded. Loved the smell of the campfires. We'd stay here again on a return trip. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice campground in Yellowstone, just north of the big geysers and closest to the western park entrance. Does not have the large facilities of Grant Village (laundry, showers) but is very nice. Wooded campground and you can walk down to the trout stream and see the elk there. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Campground in a great location within Yellowstone National Park. Thirty minutes from Old Faithful and Norris Geyser Basin and 15 minutes from the city of West Yellowstone, MT. No hookups, but water and dump station available within campground. Easy walk down to the Madison River, where there were plenty of Bison and Elk to observe. We stayed in space F227 which was a pull through site with a great view of the mountains. Dogs need to stay on the pavement and off trails, but there was plenty of places to walk. Spaces appeared well spread out and check in process was not as bad as some earlier postings We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Parking at sites are kind of small for bigger units, one way roads in campsite means half the sites on each loop are set up so you open your door onto the road rather than into the site itself. I didn't like the idea that I would have to let our dog out on the road side of the RV. And to use the picnic table and fire pit, everything had to be hauled around the RV to the opposite side. I ignored the direction signs and entered the loop the wrong way so I could park with the door facing into the site. Registration was a bit of a farce, we were camped with another couple who was told they could only stay in their site and then would have to move to a different site, which they did. But their original site was never filled for the remaining nights that they stayed in the campsite. I guess their computer system must be as antiquated as their site setup. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Much, much nicer than Fishing Bridge campground. Sites are well positioned, although tight for a 40 ft rig. Close to the river with lots of places to walk a dog. Even in the rain a pleasant place to stay. Very convenient to the west side of the park. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

One of our favorite places to stay! Great NPS CG w/o hook-ups. No showers, but clean restrooms. Pretty crowded and full every night this time of year. Make reservations early! Short walk down to the Madison/Firehole rivers for a soaking! Great central location for the Old Faithful and Mammoth areas of the park. We'll be back! We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff was very friendly, the sites are pretty spacious and fairly level. The campground was quiet despite being large and near the roadway. We only stayed one night on our way back to TX from Glacier NP, wish we could've stayed longer. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

It was cool to stay in the National park but they were updating the electric so we had no hook up. So we had to run the generator. There is no store. There is little space with small sites. There is no sewer hook up but the dump station was free. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Well treed. Lots of little wildlife. Adjacent to river. Our site was covered in snow so we could not enjoy it. Staff was friendly. Dump station was clean. Sadly, a guy showed up two days into our stay and ran his generator continuously from 8 am to 8 pm. (Generator hours). Big rigs will find it tight (corners and sites). Most of the big sites were relatively level for this type of campground. We would stay again if we needed to book in advance or all other campgrounds were closed. Good location. Closest to Old Faithful geyser basins. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground that runs along the Madison River with lots of river access. Elk common along the river. Lots of tall trees provide shade, but also make parking more difficult. We had to back our 30-foot trailer into our pull-through site. Has modern restrooms. There is a nice 3-lane dump station at entrance. No cell phone or Verizon aircard signal. There are only 3 places in Yellowstone that have cell signals: Old Faithful area, Mammoth Hot Springs, and Grant Village. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Perfect park location for many attractions. This was our favorite park campground: l ots of trees and the sites were larger than other campgrounds in the park. Note: No hookups, No Showers, No Cell service. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Sites are mostly shaded with lodge pole pines in abundance. As others have stated there are no shower or laundry facilities in the campground. It is about 15 miles to West Yellowstone which has grocery stores, supplies etc. Please be aware that there are not many sites easily accessible for RVs greater than 30 feet- I estimate less than 10%. Most of the so called pull-thru sites will require larger Motorhomes and trailers to either back in to enter the site or back out to leave it. Road noise was not bothersome for us. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there. Rate reflects America the Beautiful Senior discount. We camped at Madison Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
