Camping in Yellowstone


Yellowstone National Park has 12 campgrounds with over 2,000 sites. Yellowstone National Park Lodges takes reservations for five of these. The National Park Service manages the other seven campgrounds. Beginning in 2021, reservations for the campgrounds managed by the National Park Service can be done through

Please make your reservations early and/or plan to secure your campsite as early in the day as possible. Campgrounds may fill by early morning, especially during peak season (early July-late August).

It is recommended that people driving recreational vehicles over 30′ make a reservation since there are a limited number of campsites over 30′ available in Yellowstone. Large RV sites are located at Flagg Ranch, Fishing Bridge RV Park, West Yellowstone and Gardiner.

Length of Stay
Camping is limited to 14 days from July 1 through Labor Day (first Monday in September) and to 30 days the rest of the year; no limit at Fishing Bridge.

Drinking Water, Campfires, Grills & Stoves
Drinking water is normally available in all campgrounds with occasional exceptions. Campfires, including those in portable wood or propane fire pits, are prohibited in the Fishing Bridge RV Park. Wood and charcoal fires are permitted in all other campground locations, though special fire restrictions are occasionally put in place when the danger of wildland fires is great. If you plan to light a fire in the park, please ask about current fire restrictions at the entrance station when you arrive. Propane grills and stoves are normally not restricted.
