Camping

 
 

Yellowstone National Park offers 12 campgrounds with over 2,000 established campsites. All campsites must be reserved in advance, with the exception of Mammoth Campground which offers first-come, first-served sites from October 15 - April 1. Most campsites are reserved far in advance, so it is recommended that you make reservations as early as you can. All dates are subject to change.

 

Campground Tips & Regulations

For all lifetime passes, the pass holder must be present with identification for entry into Yellowstone National Park. We cannot look up information if your pass is lost or stolen and cannot accept receipts or pictures of the pass in lieu of the actual pass. On a snowmobile, lifetime passes admit the signer(s). When traveling by snowcoach or shuttle, they admit a signer and up to three additional adults. Children under 16 are admitted for free and are not included in these totals. The following lifetime passes are available:

  • America the Beautiful - Lifetime Senior Pass - $80

    Available for all U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 or over. An America the Beautiful - Annual Senior Pass is also available. Covers entrance fees at all national parks and national wildlife refuges, as well as standard amenity fees (day use fees) at national forests and grasslands, and at lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Senior Pass may provide a 50 percent discount on some amenity fees charged for facilities and services, such as camping. Purchase online or at any Yellowstone National Park entrance station.
