Wildlife in camp
The Madison is not only renowned for its fishing, but for its elk viewing. We were able to sit back and enjoy a beverage while taking up-close and personal photos of some huge bull elk and their cows not 50 yards away. I only rate this campground 4/5 stars because it is so busy the whole season and hard to get a spot. It is also right at the road junction going to West Yellowstone and can a fair amount of road noise.
