The vibe at Mammoth Hot Springs Campground
Drop some Mammoth Hot Springs Campground knowledge on us.
Amazingly we lucked out. Pulled in last minute here in July and obviously everything is booked way in advance, except!..... the motorcycle-only campsites! :) This is fairly big campground but tucked away in the most beautiful western setting surrounded by mountains with a river down below. Just a short stint down the road also takes you to hot springs where a river merges with natural hot springs. Make sure you go there - so untouched and beautiful.
This campground is in the northern part of the park, so if you're coming in or leaving by way of Wyoming, this is the most convenient place to sleep! The bathrooms are very well-maintained and have running water. The spots, while they don't offer much privacy, are spacious especially if you have a tent instead of an RV. This campsite puts you at a prime location from which to explore the springs which are a major destination within the park. Since the campground is so close to the springs, you can get a leg up on the tourist bus crowds that start rolling in around mid-morning. The campsite is in a busier area and is surrounded by a road on both sides, so if you're looking for something a bit more remote, try Indian Creek or Tower Falls.
