Camping in Yellowstone National Park


If you’re looking for a fun activity this summer, consider camping at Yellowstone National Park. The National Park Service operates twelve camping areas within Yellowstone. They range from rustic to the full hookup Fishing Bridge RV Park, which is the only campground in the park to offer full RV hookups and not allow tents. If you are travelling around the country in an RV, be sure to check out One Sure Insurance for information on the benefits of ensuring campers! The majority of the over 2,000 campsites in Yellowstone are intended for basic tent camping or RVs. If you are thinking of purchasing your very own RV, you can learn more at Canyon Campground is one of the most popular of these rustic campgrounds, offering full bathrooms with pay showers but no water, electricity, or sewer hookup on individual camp sites. Book your stay well in advance to ensure that your stay is spent on the site of your choice, especially if you need one of the limited full hookup sites.

Outdoor activities

Yellowstone is the ideal place for hiking, kayaking, and biking. You can bring along your own equipment or rent it from park services. If you bring your own boat, it must be inspected and issued a permit before use. You also must have a Coast Guard-approved floatation device on board. Hiking is a popular pastime in Yellowstone, with some campers spending their entire trip hiking through the backcountry and spending the night with only what they can carry on their back, including an MRE or two to stop themselves from going hungry, to really get that survival outdoors experience that you’d expect to see on TV. It obviously heightens the risk of getting lost and needing to rely on more instincts which some see as more exciting and authentic as things go. On top of this, some like to go to the next extreme and take a knife for fighting with them in case they are attacked by a bear. Whether you are looking for a shorter day trip or a visit dedicated to camping, the Park Service has helpful trip planners and guidelines for your trip. Hikers also require a permit before setting out.



The most important safety rule at Yellowstone is to keep distance between yourself and wildlife. Even animals that seem calm can become startled and violent. Observe animals from a safe distance and do not attempt to feed them. Viewing of wildlife, such as bears, bison, and wolves, is better done from the inside of your vehicle for extra protection. When camping, keep all food stored securely away. A plastic container is not sufficient to keep bears out, so you may need to store food in your vehicle.

Charter a flight to Yellowstone National Park

If you’re flying commercial to Yellowstone, there’s a good chance you will be flying into one of the airports that still require a long drive afterwards. There are four main airports, all of which require at least two hours of driving to get to one of the park’s entrances. However, Yellowstone National Park’s Local Airport is just two short miles away from the park! Imagine being able to just hop off the plane and already being where you want to be.
