Pebble Creek is the most remote of Yellowstone National Park’s campgrounds, but for lovers of wildlife and remote mountain beauty, this is the place to be. Located far up the Lamar Valley—Yellowstone’s premier wildlife spotting area—Pebble Creek is not far from the remote northeastern entrance to the park. Often among the last campground to open in mid-June, this first-come, first-served little gem is worth the effort to get here early to get a spot.

There is one small loop along Pebble Creek that has a few full sized sites and seven walk-in tent sites. The remainder of the sites are along a large loop that borders a beautiful meadow frequented by elk, mule deer, and even bears on occasion. The campground is primitive, with vault toilets and drinking water served up with an old hand pump, but it has several longer sites that can accommodate pretty large RVs.

There might only be a few sites that turn over any given morning, so anyone wanting a site at Pebble Creek would do well to leave very early. It is a long drive back to the larger campgrounds near the center of the park.
