Canyon Village Campground is located within a mile of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and is one of the most popular campgrounds. The Canyon Campground is a favorite due to its wooded setting and relatively central location within Yellowstone Park. There are several ways to access the Grand Canyon from the campground. The North Rim Drive provides turnouts and several overlook access points as well as a few views of the stunning Lower Falls. Along the south rim, Artist’s Point overlook and Uncle Tom’s Trail are two other popular points of interest for views of the canyon and waterfalls.
**First-come/First-served Campsites at Canyon, Grant and Bridge Bay Campgrounds
During the opening week of operation at Canyon, Grant and Bridge Bay Campgrounds we only offer sites on a first come/first served basis. We do this because the early season dates at these specific campgrounds are frequently impacted by heavy snow and wet conditions. Without having to make reservations, guests can visit the campgrounds and decide if the conditions are suitable for their situation and desired experience. If so, they can stay. If not, there are no reservations to cancel or refund. We typically do not sell out during the first week of operation at each of these campgrounds.
