Sheffield Campground is located in the northeast corner of the Buffalo Ranger District, just outside of the John D. Rockefeller Parkway. Heading north on Highway 191 to Yellowstone, take a right onto the Forest Service dirt road before you get to the Snake River Bridge just before Flagg Ranch. The campground sits just outside of the Teton Wilderness. This location is equipped with 5 campsites, a single-unit vault toilet, access to bear boxes, and campfire rings. Nearby, visitors can access the wilderness via Sheffield Trailhead which provides access to the historic Huckleberry Lookout.
If you don't want to be in a huge campsite in the National Parks give this place a try. Nothing too special but is a nice spot to get away from the crowds. They do have food storage available and toilets, dogs are allowed. Easy access to both Yellowstone and Teton! When the park campgrounds were full, this spot was still available!
This is a great little campground with only a few sites (5 I think) just south of Yellowstone. We were here just to fly fish the Snake River for a couple of hours (make sure you have all the right fishing permits for Yellowstone and Wyoming!). Clean vault toilets, picnic tables, and fire pits, plus bear proof storage containers.
5 nice sites all first come first serve. Right outside the south entrance to Yellowstone. No real amenities, a simple valet toilet. Great spot since no one really seems to think to stop here. This is bear country, use some form of bear food storage! Was actually asked to leave earlier than anticipated by the rangers because there was excessive bear activity in the area.
This little campground has 5 paid sites and is off of Forest Road 30504. You have to cross the creek to get there but it wasn't a bad crossing when were were there in mid-June. I would imagine if they had been getting a lot of rain it would have been more difficult. The campsites are pretty dispersed and each have a table, fire pit, and food storage container because this is a "bear-aware" area. There was one vault toilet for the campground. You could just make out the tops of the Tetons from our site and it was in a pretty pasture area with lots of trees and rolling hills. I would definitely stay here again.
