A campground along the Madison River on the Hebgen Lake District.
This was a nice spot and has a trail that goes down to quake lake. However the camp at the host shook me down! For one night with two sites and 4 cars he charged me $90 and continually came by to harass us! Would go back if he is no longer there.
Lots of available sites. Not far from Yellowstone. Room for large tents. We had an 8 x 15 tent. Camp host was extremely helpful. You can buy wood from host. No showers. Toilets are vault toilets but extremely clean. Nice place to stay for $15 a night.
Such a beautiful area. The sites are nice with distance in between them. The grounds were extremely well maintained. We stayed in loop A because we wanted to be close to Earthquake Lake. Very cool history there. Many lakes around to boat or kayak. There was a mother moose and baby that we were warned about by the camp hosts, but we did not have any run ins with them. We will for sure stay here again!
After spending the day driving between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, we were anxious to arrive, set up camp and crack a beer. Unfortunately, our plans of an early arrival were delayed significantly due to animals near and or/on the road leaving on the park. Oh well - if you’re going to be stuck in slow traffic, Yellowstone is the place to do it!
From West Yellowstone, the campground is about a half hour drive along the beautiful Hebgen Lake. The camp hosts were very kind and accommodating. They gave us a few tips about tenting in bear country, and advised us to look out for a few moose who inhabit the grounds.
Our site (C22) was surprisingly quiet and secluded despite being in the middle of the loop. While we didn’t have our own bear locker, there was one nearby which appeared to be communal. Our site was large, with lots of options for tent placement, and a nice picnic table. Don’t forget to pack bug/bear spray!
About 25 minutes outside of West Yellowstone, MT, this campground is tucked away along the Madison River between Hebgen Lake and Earthquake Lake. This was a busy campground with nearly every site full (holiday week close to Yellowstone National Park). There was a nice trail from loop A that allowed us to access Earthquake Lake. We also hiked off trail on our own and could easily get to the Madison River and stay close to the campsite. Numerous bathrooms, bear proof trash bins, and bear storage lockers. Camp host was very friendly and sold firewood either at their site or would drive around the campground 6-7pm offering wood. Each site had a parking spot for 2 vehicles, fire ring, picnic table, and tent location. Only needed to travel 0.5-1 mile on a gravel road but could easily get back to town for groceries, etc. Gorgeous drive along the lakes and rivers to access campground. Earthquake Lake Visitor Center is only a few miles down the road and offers a nice history on the natural disaster that caused "Quake Lake" to form.
we arrived at this campsite around 4:30 on a Friday in June. There are three large loops, each with plenty of sites of pretty good size. Loop A was mostly reserved, while Loops B and C were practically empty. The sites are well maintained, bathrooms are clean and all are close to water for some awesome fishing. There is a free campsite maybe a mile towards the West Yellowstone entrance on the opposite side of the road on Beaver Creek Road. This site does charge a fee.
Located in the Gallatin National Forest and a few miles northwest of Yellowstone, this area is part of the migration path for many wild animals – including grizzly and brown bears. The 9 campsites are spread across a 4.5-mile dirt road, with trailheads in between. There are minimal utilities at the campgrounds: campfire rings and parking for 1-2 vehicles, no bathrooms, spotty cell service, and no fee for camping. Rated a four star because of location of campsites are in the canyon, making for an early sunset and late sunrise. Beaver Creek is clear and cold water - excellent for fishing! Remeber - be bear aware!
