WASHINGTON — At the northwest entrance of Yellowstone National Park, there lies Mammoth Campground. At Mammoth, you’ll set up camp on a high sagebrush steppe above the Gardner River, with juniper and Douglas fir trees speckling the landscape.
Take in the sites of nearby Mount Everts, a geological wonder formed by rapid lifting and erosion. While there, take advantage of the nearby Mammoth Hot Springs, which boast the appearance of a cave turned inside out. Keep an eye out for elk and bison, as they occasionally pass through the campground. In the evening, relax under the ribbon of stars that light up the night sky. At Mammoth Campground, you’ll get some of the best dry camping there is. Plan ahead; all sites are first come, first serve, and reservations are not available.
