Norris Campground

Norris Campground is located somewhat near the center of Yellowstone NP. It's a smaller campground, mostly wooded and most sites are on a hillside. There are no hookups, no showers, no dump station.

We originally hadn't planned to stop at Norris, but we decided it was a convenient spot and would save some driving. Sites are generally small and all the more level ones were taken; the best we could do was this pull-off on a hill. As you can see, it took some doing to get the rig level.

Date of visit: Sep 2011

Another of the pull-off sites.

The lower loop has the levelest sites and borders on an open area overlooking the river.

These are definitely the choicest sites.

Most of the sites are rather uneven, whether pull-off or back-in.

An interesting place to visit is the Museum of the National Park Ranger, located at the campground entrance.

A mile walk through the woods takes one to the Norris Geyser Basin, where you can find colorful springs, steam vents and geysers.
