Big Game Campground is open June 3 – Sept. 8. There are 16-29 campsites at this location and the maximum RV length is 35 feet. You may stay 16 days at Big Game Campground.

This campsite was very convenient and easy to find. It was right off the main road about about 35 mins to the east entrance of Yellowstone. We stayed there on a Friday night and out of 15 sites there were 7 other sites being used.

Price $10 Night

Best Review:

Snow was melting in Yellowstone and the water came up rather close to our site in the evening, however the host had warned us to keep an eye on it. The camp hosts were great. There was a moose that we watched for about an hour, came within 20′ of our rig. Lots of thick brush around and were leary of walking around. The host said that they had been instructed to not walk around without their bear spray with them, but they hadn’t seen one yet. Saw bear tracks across the road the morning we left. Were about 50′ from our RV. Very Clean toilets(vault) no cell signal, bugs were tolerable. Really quiet, nice view of river and the mountain on the other side of it.
