Very well located, it is a typical nice National Park campground. No reservations, so one needs to be there early in the morning to find a site. Good for tents, although it could be cold...Many sites are in the shade. The lower loop is open on the meadows, and often animals come across the campground. The upper loop is more...

Get here by 9 a.m. To get a campsite. It is worth the early rise to get your spot. This campground is centrally located in the park. It is quiet and beautiful. The bison visit regularly and there is a stream for fly fishing.

We arrived to Norris Campground around 6:30 am. Early bird gets the worm - we got the best campsite we could ask for. In the lower loop and it overlooked a meadow and a winding river. The view was the best we could ask for and the campsite was just perfect. Upper loops offer sites nestled in the woods and...

Norris is a great campground for tent camping..Most of the sites are surrounded by pines, all have picnic table, grill. Many have back-in area big enough for medium sized trailer or van. only a FEW pull throughs, and those are taken REALLY quickly. The roads around the camp are hilly, tight turns. Really not good for long trailers or RVs....

Very tight campground on uneven terrain. Sites are small but feel isolated because the trees are dense. Great for tent camping; RVs and trailers may have difficulty with some of the spaces. Restrooms have running water and a cleaning sink. No showers.

My brother and I pulled in late one Thursday night off-season. The sign said the camp was all full but the host directed us to the walk-in sites in loop A. They weren't close to each other at all and were well-graded and nice. There were tall evergreens all around and a nice view in the morning. No showers but...

The check in process is horrendous! The location is central and really nice once you have secured a site. The price is amazing (compared to the hotel prices). After staying there, we were still glad we stayed at this location even with the hassles of check in but it could be SO MUCH BETTER with an improved check-in system. Our...

Pros: No main road noise; easy 14 mile drive to Canyon--east side of the park (visitor center, groceries, restaurants); flush toilets; ice and firewood for sale; one mile from Norris Geyser Basin; bear boxes Cons: Some sites very close to each other; a noisy generator may be next to you—no tent only loop; no showers; no hookups A first-come, first-served...

Great central location to do upper loop one day and lower loop the next. Understand how to snag a site or you might lose out. Get a yellow form near the ranger station at the entrance to fill out and clip to the post of the site that is available. The whole process of finding a site seemed very haphazard....

There are two types of camp ground in my mind; bare essentials or cityfolk. This is more of a cityfolk campground with a firewood vendor, and ice dispensing shed (sort of like a giant vending machine), very close campsites, and plenty of loud cityfolk. We loved our site and would stay there again if we returned, but understand what you...
