Clean facilities. Spent one night here in a tent. Had no problem getting a FCFS site. $10

Report Check-In

I stayed here for 4 nights. Pay station wasn't open until the last night. great little spot, by the creek. you can hear the water flowing and wind at night.
10/night $5for additional vehicles.
I invited a few others over to my site to stay for a few days because I had snatched the last site.
Lovely crowd and great conversation.
Generator is allowed, one of them had a quite one going most of the day and night. not a big nuisance

Report Check-In

Campsite was still in off season so pay station was taped off, was free for us! You have to cross a pretty good stream of water to get to the campsite. We did it in 4x4 sprinter van, not sure if smaller cars are recommended as everyone else had trucks and Jeep’s on the other side. Would probably recommend high clearance vehicles

Report Check-In

As of May 17, the river was too high for us to cross with our van. Also, the current is strong. We saw a 4WD car crossed without problem. The bottom of the river a concrete road (not rocks).

Report Check-In

Campground was still open and is currently free (sign is wrapped in plastic). Its end of season and gets very cold at night at 7,000ft elevation.

Report Check-In

We got here late after searching for free spots on Grassy Lake Rd. The river looks shocking when you roll up but wasn’t too deep and our minivan made it over no problem. There were no official spots but it was a free for all past the trailhead sign. We just pulled into a spot in the woods and we heard the only rule was no fires.

Report Check-In

$10 a night. was full by 12 o'clock. Peaceful site though. Wood available from site host.

Report Check-In

we arrived around 11pm and saw the water - couldn't tell how deep it was and whether our ford transit would be ok, so just parked along the shore, off the road and across from the 'no camping' sign. left early the next morning so didn't see anyone else other than a couple other cars leaving just before us (who all crossed the water just fine!). quiet except for the river, which was lovely!

Report Check-In

Great little spot. Paid in busy season (steel ranger at entry), but free when we went in October. There were a few other campers there when we arrived but we found a site no problem. Sites have picnic tables, fire pits and bear boxes. Campground has pit toilets. Perfect spot to stay if you're visiting Yellowstone in the fall. I imagine it will be packed with campers in high season. Enjoy!

Nice Forest Service Campground near Flagg Ranch with lots of space. Much quieter and more private than the big campground at Flagg Ranch.

Report Check-In

Nice campsite. $15. Most sites had fire pits. Very busy when we went in August. Got the last open site around 7pm and had multiple people driving around after we pitched camp. Claim your site early in the day.

Report Check-In

Several places in a wonderful surrounding. As it seems there are no fees off season, while in season it is still USD 10.- per car/ night,

Report Check-In

At the end of May, it was not possible to reach this campsite because of the river wich cross the road near to the campsite. So with our van it was not possible to cross (we saw some big 4x4 do it)
There are some spots to park along the road so we stop there. Sign no camping.
The sherif came at 9:30pm and said that it’s not allowed to stay here but he let us park here (maybe because we are two girls...)

Report Check-In

Nice spot, quiet and pretty view. We were here at the end of the season, so it was for free.

Report Check-In

it s not free but 10 dollars per night, but its full in summer...

Report Check-In

It's still a good and quiet place, but it's not longer for free. At the moment they charge a fee of 10 USD per night. Maybe only for peak season (we visited the place in August)

Report Check-In

Great place with nobody around (we are in october) and a perfect view on the mountain full of snow.

Report Check-In

It was quite comforting to sleep in bear area for free but in this small community of local hunters and kayaking guides with dogs :)
