I get different answers from my search of campgrounds reviews.

Does Rainbow Point Campground (USFS) near West Yellowstone have a dump station near the check in or not? . . . [emoticon]

We most often stay at Baker Hole, but are looking for something different this year. It would be nice to be able to dump and refill our water at the campground when we arrive and leave and not need to "pay" $5 to $10 to dump at West Yellowstone.

Some reviews say no yet one review say yes.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

The Gallatin NFS site, recreation.gov, and forestcamping.com all say no.

We stayed there last year and had no dump station but they do have water (did not check it though). We dumped and filled water at grizzly rv down the road.

If you will be driving thru the Park, why not dump and get water at Madison CG. Easy in and out and no charge.

10OC, I don't know if you have been thru Rainbow Point CG but compared to Bakers Hole it is tight. And they have those famous Forest Service concrete stanchions that line the sites, a real PITA

We stayed a night at Rainbow Point campground last June because we arrived late at Bakers hole and found it full. As a heads up, the 2 mile or so of dusty gravel road into Rainbow point was the worst washboard we have ever been on. We were really happy to get into Bakers Hole the next morning. Driving that dusty washboard twice a day to get to the Park would have been a bummer.
