As described, great spot to camp right outside Yellowstone. Several sites with picnic tables and fire pits. Getting in is fine, couple potholes and some wooden planks over a small creek, we had no trouble in our Toyota Highlander. We got in at 7pm and there was still a spot. Seems to be free on the off-season. Would recommend!

Report Check-In

The campground was still open but the season for charging to stay at the campground had ended so we were able to camp for free. Several sites were vacant. The site does have a few pot holes so we had to be a bit careful with our low clearance class B, but once you are in the campground there are no problems. Sites are mostly level. There is a place for horses and turning around larger rigs. No T Mobile service.

We had previously drove the grassy loop road and found all of the 8 camping areas full. We did not continue to Grassy lake itself because the road was getting bad. So finding this campground nearly empty at 6 pm was really nice!

1.25 lanes going up and pothole city. Then no sites left at 1630hrs on Aug 30th. Previous posts correct...be there early.

Great little campground. Pit toilets fire rings and picnic tables.
Cell service. Knowledgeable camp host.
Foggy morning but a wonderful place. Would stay there again.

Great camping spot! $10 per night, extra vehicle is $5.
There are bears…must be very careful with food. The bears have not been spoiled and quickly run away from humans. The camp host is wonderful and very helpful. Pit toilet is very clean. As others described must cross a very low creek to get into camp. Prior to camp entrance signs are posted saying no camping. Camp host let us look at her maps and sold us some firewood for $6. Also gave advice on beat campsite for us. We arrived late afternoon during Sturgis and had our choice of several spots and those quickly filled after we set up. Would definitely come here again.

Perfect spot if you’re jumping in between Tetons and Yellowstone. Can’t beat the $10 deal and close to the highway. Has fire rings, tables and pit toilets nearby. Camp host was super helpful and nice.

We arrived Friday evening and there were still a couple overflow spots left. Lovely, quiet, and also clean pit toilet. One has to cross a low creek area. Bugs not too bad.

Report Check-In

great forested spot. must cross small river in vehicle, our 2wd promaster made it just fine. Host is extremely nice and helpful, she'll accommodate rigs in the trailhead lot if camp is full. $10/night. lots of mosquitoes.

We arrived early on a Monday, while it was raining, and quickly realized we couldn’t cross the “bridge” to the campsites. The water was too high for our comfort (2500 truck and 25ft travel trailer). We ended up staying overnight just before the bridge. We unhitched, explored Yellowstone, and came back in the evening to find out TT surrounded by two Class As, a camper van, and a car camper - surprised but we all fit and had a great time! I imagine the flowing water was higher than normal since it had been raining for two solid days. See photos 😁

This place is fantastic! Well spread out sites (I think 11), pit toilet, huge fire pits, mountain views, burbling steam. Stream crossing with truck and trailer no problem. Fun 16 km hike to look out right from camp too.

Great view and LTE with full bars, campsites are well dispersed

Snow free road and easy creek crossing. Great cell phone reception for AT&T. Free to camp as of now, does change to $10 per night eventually,

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

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).

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.

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!

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.

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...)

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

Perfect and off the beaten path and it was super quite this time of year. It’s was mainly being used by hunters.

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)

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

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

free primitive camping just before the bridge on the right. follow the FS road up to the spot where there are pit toilets, picnic tables, water and horse corrals. beautiful!
