We really enjoyed our stay here! Loved being in the forest with beautiful scenery! I would have given more stars, however, our site for our size RV (32) was tight. It’s our fault for not calling earlier. We were put in a small tent/RV 40ft site. We were in G-193. We struggled to fit our RV between the trees at this site. It was very hard to level in because we were on a slope but we were able to get our slide out even with the trees on both sides. Other sites were a little bit bigger for our size of an RV and we would’ve had no problems if it wasn’t for trees on both sides at our location. There’s also construction coming in and out of the entrance of the campground going over a bridge. There is a light that has you sit for two minutes while they worked but it was never busy so you never had to wait long. With that being said we loved the campsite other than the few things mentioned above. It was very quiet and there were different loops so there wasn’t a lot of people in each of the loops which made it more distanced. Each section had trails to go down to the lake. The picnic tables were very worn but it was nice to see the bathrooms get cleaned every two hours. This site is located right near the bathrooms. There is no Wi-Fi but Sprint and T-Mobile worked great! There were two dump stations one behind the gas station and one at the beginning of the park. We would stay there again for sure!

My wife and I rented a Mercedes Sprinter camper and got a campsite at Grant Village Campground. It was perfect. The location is amazing right on Yellowstone Lake and nearby major attractions such as Old Faithful and road access up along the lake to Fishing Bridge (with further access into the NE part of the park). The staff was great, the campsite and area was kept in great condition. and there's a General Store, gas station and small market with all you need. You can also get firewood at camp registration, and the restrooms are kept in great condition. The value is insane for the experience.

We wanted to stay inside the park but all the hotels were booked. We were lucky to get a spot at Grant Campground. We are not experienced campers, so we appreciated that all of the campsites are close to a bathroom with flush toilets and clean water. There is a separate room with a dishwashing sink, shared food boxes to protect food from bears, and a picnic table and fire pit at each site. We stayed on the L loop, which was nice. There were enough trees to feel like we have privacy from the other campsites. L loop is next to the main road so there is quite a bit of traffic noise, even late at night. It was still close enough to the shore of Yellowstone Lake that you can walk there. There is only one loop for primitive camping on the lake side of the campground (C loop), but those campsites seemed closer together with less privacy. The reservation and check in / out process was very easy. It’s a short drive to West Thumb Basin for the most spectacular sunrise you will ever see. As previously mentioned, the showers are closed for 2021.

We usually stay at Lewis Lake and shower at Grant when we go to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. However, during the Pandemic we were limited on campgrounds. We got lucky and were able to get a place here overnight. It was such a nice place that we are making reservations for next year already. We always had great luck with the showers and now we know the campground is nice too. Would recommend this to someone who likes the idea of having a safe place to stay that you can reserve a tent spot. Showers were closed due to the Covid, but we just went to Colter Bay to shower instead. Hopefully, next year we can stay longer and have the showers included in our stay. Very conveniently located between both Yellowstone and Grand Teton.

Spent the night in mid-September. Check-in was smooth, great location (central in Yellowstone). Sites are very close. No hookup site, with very strict quiet hours (8p cut-off for generators). Not great for an RV with limited battery power (got pretty cold very quickly inside). Otherwise a pleasant stay.

If you like to hear your neighbor snore, then this is the campground for you. Make no mistake, this campground packs you in like sardines. If you’re a tent-camper, then stay outside the park or at least look elsewhere.

Pros: Included showers were awesome and clean. Laundromat looked immaculate. Staff was pleasant.

Cons: you can’t reserve your campsite. We were placed next to the bathrooms with people regularly walking through our site. Sites are so close together, it’s completely uncomfortable.

We cooked all our meals at picnic areas in the park, just to avoid the business of the campground.

I will never stay here again.

We booked Grant Village Campground in August 2019. We had just returned from an amazing trip to Yosemite. We were tired of not having showers at NPs and this one had them. Plus, after researching the Yellowstone options, this seemed to be the one with the most possible privacy. With Covid-19 going on, we were scared we wouldn’t even be able to go. Luckily, Yellowstone opened this campground back up! We had to rebook our airplane and rental cars, but this campground remained steady. We got home last week after 6 nights and this was one of the most amazing tent camping experiences we have had. Showers were closed, but we survived. I asked for a ‘private’ site when we booked in ‘19. The NPS delivered as much as they could. We stayed in D132 for 6 nights. There were only woods and a lightly used path to the lake in front of us. We couldn’t see the campers to the left in (134?) and the ones to the right (130?) were mainly nice and quiet. We had 3 groups in 130 during our 6 nights - nice quiet couple, loud 20yr old boys (only 1) and a friendly family. All in all - we highly recommend this campground, campsite, and Yellowstone!

Absolutely terrible campground. Made reservations online. Had to be moved 3 times to find a camping spot that would fit our camper and vehicle. The staff was completely incompetent and need better training.
Reservations were from July 1-5, checked in on the first and received a phone call on the second asking why our camper was still there and we were supposed to be checked out. I informed them that our check out date was the 5th and we had already paid.
On the third an employee came to our campsite and stated we had not paid and we supposed to leave the July 2nd. Again I informed the employee that our check out date was July 5 and was paid already and showed her the receipt.
With all the issues and harassment from the campground Grant campground ruined our trip to Yellowstone. We ended up leaving the morning of July 4th. The family was over the campground issues.

Very tight spaces and trees. Difficult for RV's. We watched a brand new Minni Winnie being towed tear off it's awning right in front of us as the driver tried to turn into one of the circles.

The firewood, like most firewood sold at National Parks I've bought, was unseasoned, green, and mildewy. I returned it.

One child on a bike as he pulled into our campground: "Hey guys! Check out this cool gravel pit I found!"

I awoke one morning to find a woman in a bathrobe smoking while walking her dog, which was pooping in our area. Other people walked through our campsite and waved as if that made it acceptable.

The roads are torn up from roots.

Go stay at Madison.

On the positive side, staff were very friendly and courteous. Elk roamed the campground. Showers were not operational at the time. Bathrooms were fine and well heated.

We "tented it" while at the campgrounds. The space was large and clean.
The toilets were modern and clean. The staff was friendly. Would stay again if the situation was the same.

The camp grounds has a dump station. Is there water to fill RV?
Answer from David T

Most sites are very specific to length and are not too forgiving. Sites are not very wide. Good chance if you angle your equipment you could save a few feet.

Depends where you stay. Grant Village in Yellowstone had zero hookups.
