The vibe at Madison Campground
Drop some Madison Campground knowledge on us.
Traditional public camp loop, well maintained.
We stayed at Madison Campground on Thursday, October 3, 2019 (High: 50F / Low: 16F).
We made a reservation in advance the day before our stay even this late in season to play it safe. We arrived at camp around ~5:30pm and had our site assigned. (Reservations only guarantee a spot that will accommodate your equipment, not a specific site)
By 6pm, the camp was bustling, however did not fill completely according to the concessioner staff.
The closest park entrance to Madison Campground is the West Yellowstone entrance (14mi). The camp is also closest of all campgrounds to the the park's main attractions: Grand Prismatic Springs (10mi), and Old Faithful Geyser (18mi).
All facilities were well maintained and clean. All sites have a fire pit, picnic table, and bear box.
We camped here mid-August 2016 and had a blast. The rangers are pretty strict about keeping your food put away and the area clean. It was a great place to be, we saw elk grazing across the river from us, and then there is tons see in Yellowstone.
My favorite campground in Yellowstone - lots of neighbors but reminded me of camping as a kid, surrounded by friendly people and the sound of campfires popping. It was nice to have a bathroom close by and park rangers that were happy to give advice on where to hike.
We camped here in early October. Most campsites filled up by the end of the evening. Great location, campground is close to many of the main attractions within Yellowstone. Campsite, bathrooms, and dish washing areas were all clean.
