Sleeping at Slough Creek is gonna be the best smelling sleep you ever had! Ya, you heard that right, some of the first-come, first-served spots here are in a sage field and well, that’s just delicious. Walk out of your tent and fish the creek with your morning coffee, or take the Slough Creek Trail for a wicked day of adventure. At night, you won’t want to sleep with killer dark sky views and who knows, maybe even a wolf or two howling off in the distance. Down a dirt road, this is front country camping with a backcountry feel that is pretty impeccable and hard to beat, especially in the olfactory department.

My favorite spot in Yellowstone. Close to an overlook for denning wolves (at least in 2010). Look out for black bears getting too curious.
