yellowstone car camp - August 18, 2023

There has been a change in the reservation system for car camping in Yellowstone. Reservations previously were all made through Reserve America. Recently this was changed for Yellowstone's larger campgrounds (Grant Village, Madison, Norris, Bridge Bay and Canyon). Now reservations for these campgrounds must be made through Xanterra. The good news is that reservations can now be made for more than one year in advance (and hardly anyone is aware of this yet, so you can pretty much reserve what you want for next summer now). Reservations require a deposit of something like 25%, but this is refundable, as I understand it, if the reservation is cancelled prior to something like a month before the date of the scheduled camp. So, for next year, I went ahead and reserved campsites at Grant Village for August 18-21, Canyon Village for Aug 21- 25 and Madison for Aug 25-28. I had to put down about 25%, I think, but it is refundable if cancelled up till July or so of next year. So, I reserved a site for myself and encourage anyone interested in joining us to reserve their own site through the Xantera website. We will meet sometime in July to discuss different hike options. Let me know if you are interested in joining- but you will need to reserve your own campsite. When I made my reservations, my campsite numbers were not revealed. If you have questions, please email or text me.
