This was a beautiful place to camp for the night.  There are 10 campsites and we were in site #10. The road leading in was a one way and pretty narrow. Our site was also narrow and had a slight tilt so we broke out the boards to level us.  We didn't have any cell service here or satellite.

At night it was peaceful listening to the sound of the creek and it helped us fall fast asleep.  The next morning during daylight I followed the creek and discovered it flowed through behind most of the campsites. The campsites are very private and you don't see or hear anyone. Lastly, this campground has a self pay station before entering the campground.

Next to the creek are picnic tables and outdoor grill. Photo by Debi

Grant Village Campground

This was the road leading into the campground at Yellowstone. Grant Village campground.

We stayed at the Grant Village campground at campsite #185 which was directly across from the restrooms and the main road leading into the campground.  We didn't know at first until after we settled in how busy and loud this site was. RV's were traveling in all night and stopping off at the restrooms. For such a beautiful park, this campsite sucked at establishing a campsite so close to the restrooms and traffic.

We were able to stream movies but the volume of our tv didn't help drown out the noise from the people hanging out at the restrooms or driving in. See my blog about what happened later that night.
