CampsitePhotos.com is the only source where you can search and view all of the campsites in Yellowstone National Park.

Here’s a nice campsite overlooking Slough Creek.
Established in 1872 as the world’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park includes almost 3,500 square miles of incredible wilderness and certainly should be on your bucket list to visit. The Park is mostly in Wyoming, but also includes a little of Montana and Idaho.
Lower Falls is just to the east of Canyon Village and Artist Point offers a sweet photo opportunity.
Yellowstone sits atop an ancient (and living) volcanic caldera that last erupted about 630,000 years ago. Today it is a geologic wonder with colorful hot springs, mud pots and spectacular geysers.
Mounds Terrace is a bit other-worldly. You’ll find this close to Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone.
Over 1,000 miles of trails offer visitors the opportunity to explore mountains, canyons, meadows, lakes, rivers and creeks. You’ll also see a variety of wildlife including bison, elk, moose, grizzly bears, deer, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mountain lions, wolves, as well as countless species of birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles. Oh my!
Indian Creek (pictured below) may not offer the best fishing by Yellowstone standards, but it’s not a bad place to hang out for awhile.
Yellowstone offers a lot to do throughout the year, but if you’re targeting the summer then you can fill your days hiking, biking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, backpacking, taking pictures, visiting historic sites and of course camping in any of the 12 campgrounds (cabins, lodges and hotels are also available).
