Yellowstone camping remains one of the top recreational activities in the park. There are 12 designated campgrounds. Each campground has a unique quality about them. In some respects visitors should select their camping destination more deliberately than a hotel. Some of Yellowstone's camp-grounds are catered towards the large RV and some are suited more for a small tent. Don't make a reservation without knowing what you're getting or you may not enjoy your camping experience.
Here's some useful tips. If you're the type of person or family that doesn't mind, or even enjoys the comradery of other campers, then the larger campgrounds would be fine. If you don't like the sardine- can affect or the sound of generators in the wilderness, then you might not want to stay at Fishing Bridge. If you have an innate fear of Grizzly bears sniffing around your tent (and who doesn't), then you might not want to camp at Pebble Creek. Study this map and it will help in your camping decision for Yellowstone.
