I know that Mammoth, Madison, and Bridge Bay are open. Not sure about any others. With the spike going on in Idaho and Montana, they may hold off opening others.

karenandbill, Mammoth is definitely open correct? Last I checked online it still showed "to be determined"

I did not inquire what 6 campgrounds he was thinking of....must be a typo as aren’t there just 4 run by Xanterra? Bridge Bay, Grant, Canyon and Madison. Of course Fishing Bridge as well but it is was planned to be closed in 2020 anyway. Someone said earlier that Mammoth and Pebble Creek had host campers on site so maybe that is what he is referring to.

I drove up Slough Creek road on June 27, and it looked like people were set up to camp. Maybe they were just there for the day.

As of yesterday Noon Mammoth, Slough Creek and Pebble Creek were closed. The first two have had camper host rv's in them for about a week now. But the campgrounds were closed. This is the case for all campgrounds run by the NPS that are on first come first in basis.

Thanks for the up to the minute info cameraman. Still wonder if Mammoth will open at all.

Camped at Grant Friday night and Signal Mountain in the GTNP Saturday night. Still just the 4 Xanterra CG's open in Yellowstone. Every Park employee I talked to had no idea when the rest would open. On the bright side gas was just $2.18 at Colter Bay.
