YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Vistors to Yellowstone National Park will be able to make advance reservations for additional campgrounds in the park beginning Feb.14, 2022.

Reservations can be made on Recreation.gov.

The new system being implemented is a direct response to public requests for a reservation system at park campgrounds.

Reservations will go live on Recreation.gov on Feb. 14 at 8 a.m. MST. Visitors will be able to book campsites up to six months in advance. Campgrounds are expected to fill quickly once sites are made available.

At Indian Creek, Lewis Lake, Pebble Creek, Mammoth and Slough Creek campgrounds, 80% of sites will be reservable six months in advance, while the remaining 20% of sites will be available two weeks in advance.

Advance reservations are also currently available at Bridge Bay, Madison, Canyon and Grant Village campgrounds and Fishing Bridge RV Park. To reserve campsites at these campgrounds managed by Yellowstone National Park Lodges, visit Yellowstone National Park Lodges.

The last time the park placed campgrounds on an advance system was in March 2020. Learn more about camping in Yellowstone.
