The only campground in the park open year-round, Mammoth Campground—elevation 6,200 feet (1890 m)—is located five miles south of Gardiner, Montana and the park's North Entrance. Situated in a high sagebrush steppe, scattered juniper and Douglas fir trees provide shade during hot summer months. The campground is close to fishing, hiking, and the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces. Great wildlife viewing opportunities abound with elk and bison occasionally passing through the campground.
ADA Access: Five accessible campsites, accessible routes along paved roadway, ramp to amphitheater. The North Entrance Wash Tub in Gardiner, Montana has public showers, including an accessible shower and bathroom. They have a ramp that enters at the side of the building. This would be the closest accessible shower facility to the Mammoth Campground.
Mammoth campground is the only campground open all year round. It's not as big as Bridge Bay or Grant Village, in fact it is one of the smallest campgrounds in Yellowstone National Park. It is right by the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, the Albright Visitor Center and the North Entrance. There are quite a few short hikes nearby. If you want an easy one mile hike checkout the Boiling River. The parking area is just north of the Mammoth Hot Springs. It's Yellowstone, no campground here can be less than four stars!
, this is the best place to go camping
Too many people! I know, it's Yellowstone and I expected it, but it was awful. There were so many people I felt like a sardine in a can. There were kids yelling at all hours, and there was constant noise. Sleep didn't happen here. The good points would have to be the park. I loved the animals and the scenery. The tourists, not so much. I did like the shower access however, it was a chance to clean up in the middle of our weeklong camping trip. The food available is lame. One company owns all of the restaurants, and every restaurant has the same overpriced food. Take your own food. It's cheaper and better! Check out the pork chops I made ;)
This is definitely a monumental park with so much to see. There is no way to cover it in one day or wven a couple days. The park is lush, full of wild life, great for primitive camping, clean, and so much more. It's got something for everyone.
Beautiful views from the campground, saw some elk nearby as well. Good spot for seeing Mammoth Hot Springs or hiking in the northern areas of the park. We went to Gardiner, MT one evening for a small bluegrass band as well which was a highlight.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Mammoth Hot Springs. Ice Vream was close by and the wild life made it interesting for people of all ages. Definitely would return again.
