Exceptional Forest Service Campground

I stayed in space 11 which was amazing for a car and it was a perfect location to listen to the stream and waterfall. There was a couple next to me playing the fiddle and banjo until about 8pm. BEST NIGHT EVER!!!

The bear containers are clean the firepit was clean and this space could really use a level tent location but otherwise fantastic. Go fish the stream and walk around and look over the back hillside at the horses. Be Bear Aware, they are in the area but none were seen in camp this year.

Camping with a view

This campground is amazing. They only have about 16 campsites, but every spot is gorgeous. I stayed in site #10, which I believe was truly the best. If you look to one side, you get picturesque views of mountains. To the opposite side of the mountains is a raging river that you can take a short walk to. The sounds of nature will help you fall asleep with ease! There were plenty of mosquitos, so be prepared with plenty of bug spray. They provide bear boxes to store your food in too, which is handy if you don’t have your own bear canister. The bathrooms are extremely clean, and honestly they were the best campground bathrooms I’ve ever been in. It’s a relatively short drive from Yellowstone, and it’s the first campground outside of the northeast entrance of Yellowstone that allows tents. Cooke City, Montana is about halfway between the campground and Yellowstone and that little town has food, gas stations, and other little shops. It’s definitely a camp ground I’ll stay at again next time I come up here.

Great sites

Great views. Views of Pilot peak. Near water. Trail to Falls is short trip to beautiful falls. Clean restrooms.


That view over the canyon of the Beartooth Range though! Can't recall of it was $10 or $20 a night to stay but was money well spent! Small hike up the creek across the road to the calls is also undoubtedly worth the trip. Short drive from Cody, WY, Cooke City, WY, as well as the northeast gate of Yellowstone. Be sure to go to the top of the beartooths and go see "The Top of The World" Store.

Not sure what’s so crazy about the creek, but it’s lovely

They don’t take reservations so we were only able to use this site for the day to hike to the Crazy Creek falls. From what we saw, there were a lot of trees and shade with decent privacy. Very rustic with only pit toilets, so make sure to bring a filter to use the water in the creek. Great wildlife, including lots of cute rodents and birds. Very convenient to Yellowstone and so many other national forests and trails.

Nestled Between Yellowstone and the Beartooths

I've camped here numerous times and it is my favorite area out Yellowstone's NE Entrance. Not far past Cooke City, this primitive campground offers great access to the park and Beartooths, but also many sites have excellent views of Pilot Peak (try to catch them at sunset!)
