Welcome back to AllCampgrounds!

Whether you’re an RVer or enjoy tent camping, most folks know that Yellowstone National Park was America’s first national park; and there’s a special mystique and grandeur about this place that really captures the imagination.

No surprise that out of all the parks and camp grounds out there in the U.S., Yellowstone has a special place in the hearts of AllCampground followers.

So, in today’s visit AllCampgrounds will be catching up on the latest news from the “granddaddy” of all national parks in all its 2.2 million acre glory.

It’s not too late to visit for the summer season, and we hope to give you a few more reasons why you should.

Yellowstone National Park Gets 900,000 Visitors in July: July is the peak season for Yellowstone, and it’s been raking in record breaking numbers lately, especially among hikers and tent camping enthusiasts. In fact, the park has hit an important milestone: the second-highest monthly visitor total since July 1872, when the park first opened. That means interest in Yellowstone is as high now as it was when it was brand new!

Scope of Yellowstone River Oil Spill May Grow: Now, this is bad news and you might wonder why it’s a reason to go to Yellowstone. But as those of us on the Gulf Coast know, it takes a lot of work for a body of water to recover after an oil spill! Direct volunteer participation in the spill cleanup efforts is still limited, but you can show your support by visiting the Park and taking part in other activities, such as …

Volunteers Sought to Do Trail Work in Yellowstone: A night of free tent camping is available to a small selection of 20 lucky volunteers who will do about seven hours of work at Yellowstone this September 24, installing water bars to improve trail conditions n the Clear Lake-Ribbon Lake Loop Trail in the Canyon area. It will be hard work, requiring tools and carrying heavy loads at high altitudes. On the plus side, you’ll get the chance to make your mark on Yellowstone on National Public Lands Day, and receive a free entrance coupon. Interested parties can inquire by phone or email.

Official Yellowstone Park News: Go right to the source for official news from Yellowstone including weather, trail conditions, animal events, camp ground information, and other facts to serve you well on a Yellowstone camping trip. Always check this out before you make plans to venture into the backcountry!

Bearman’s Yellowstone Adventures: Bearman is an experienced tour guide who specializes in Yellowstone Park excursions. He got his name from his terrific bear viewing tours, but he can also help you find wolves and other beautiful Yellowstone creatures – providing the background and precautions you need to enjoy these animals safely. Even if you’re not up for a tour, Bearman provides a slew of free resources for all Yellowstone visitors – and he’s been doing it since 1996.
