Any suggestions for nice publicly owned campgrounds between Livingston and Gardiner? We are headed there in August and are looking at Pine Creek or Snowbank campgrounds. Dry camping is okay, just need someplace where we can get in and out easily and a site that can hold a 30' fifth wheel.

Thank you!

A good source for government parks is US Campgrounds. Note the legend at the bottom of the page. Then drag the map to your area of interest. CGs will show like a pin map and a listing of the CGs will appear in the column on the right. Clicking on a particular CG will lead you to a website for additional info.

If I recall that is all Gallatin NF, and probably the Yellowstone district

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

If your goal is to be somewhere near Yellowstone, Pine Creek is a long way away. Closer parks are Canyon in the Yankee Jim Canyon and Eagle Creek halfway between Gardiner and Jardine. Tim Minor is also a possibility if you have 4 wheel drive and don't mind a very rough trip.

About 20 miles north of Gardiner, check out Carbella Recreation Site. A BLM managed, rather primitive, camp area. Very easy access to Hiway 89, close to Yellowstone River, some shade in late afternoon. Should be adequate for overnight or a short stay.

Dailey lake has a campground, albeit bare bones, access is easy. It is nowhere near as nice as campgrounds at higher elevations with trees, but with a 30 foot fiver, some of those campsites would be a challenge to get to and a challenge to get into

this is about 8 miles to Gardiner.

Google map location.

I found this interactive map of public lands. You can scroll over or up, or zoom in, and the click on any of the icons to find out more about the area that the icon represents. Kind of neat.
