Yellowstone NP, Grant CG, WY

 grant ynp01

The Grant Village Campground is located in the south-central part of Yellowstone NP on the southwest side of Yellowstone Lake. It's a large concessionnaire-operated facility with 138 tent sites and 139 RV sites. There are also 3 loops for tenting groups only.

It took us two tries to get an acceptable site when we checked in. We were first assigned site 323, which turned out to be very small and very tilted. We went back to the office and asked for a different site.

Date of visit: Sep 2011

The second time they put us on site 389, which although very shaded, was at least large enough for us and was reasonably level.

Odd-numbered sites 293-309 are the closest there is to water-front property. The campground is up on a bluff, but there is at least a view of the lake from these sites.

Site 214 is a sunny back-in site.

Unfortunately I lost my notes, so I can't give specific site numbers.

Most sites are pull-offs on the side of the road, while there are some back-in sites on the corners.

One of the sunnier pull-off sites.

Sites 244 and 246...I think.

There are a number of these little bathrooms throughout the campground. They offer cold-water sinks and toilets. Pay showers are located about half a mile outside the campground entrance - not real convenient. $2.00 for 6 minutes.
