I have now been to Norris Hot Springs two years in a row on the last weekend in September. I love the small number of camping spaces and the rules that all campers actually follow (no loose dogs, no generators). The camp bathroom/showers are super helpful and it is awesome to just walk across the parking lot to the spring.
The food is amazing and the staff are all super friendly. Both years I've been, it has snowed either a dusting or an inch-ish. The camp spots do not become a muddy mess and the drive is still easy to navigate on foot or by small vehicle.
We might make an annual trip here if we can budget in the time off. It is the perfect spot to setup camp and then go explore the area.
Quick note to backup other reviews. This place is worth a stop and folks seem to know it. Occupancy appeared near capacity for our visit. Would stay again - preferably when there is live music in the dome.
Gteat location. Lots of bison. Easy access to all the Geysers. Great ranger program. Only down side is heavy use and hard for staff to stay on top of it. Staff were friendly and helpful though.
I love this place! 45 minutes away from Bozeman and you’re in the middle of a beautiful landscape. The camping is descent with some sites having hookups. When you’re camping it’s only and extra $3/day per person to go to the hot springs…normally $8/person. They have great food and a descent selection of beer/wine as well. They also have bands play at night on the weekends which is awesome!
A lovely little place. About 10 small sites with hook ups and several more for tents. Showers and toilets available, plus WiFi. There is a cafe on site with the hot springs. They grow all their own organic food to serve and have several draft beer options. Nice quiet campground, and at the springs they have live music on the weekends, which makes for a more crowded pool. If you have kids, mornings are best for space to play and less alcohol about. Cool place to visit with family or friends. Make reservations online as they fill fast and are busy on weekends.
