Madison Campground

Located at Madison Junction, this campground provides 292 camp sites (Tent, RV, combo RV/tent and ADA compliant) including 3 group sites. The Madison River flows adjacent to the campground with many access routes to the river and the beautiful scenery of Madison Valley. Lots of trees provide good shade throughout the campground. Roads and parking sites are paved.

  • Amphitheater: The beautifully set amphitheater is accessible via a paved and lit trail at the eastern edge of the campground. The large viewing screen and stage of the amphitheater are backdropped with the valley where the Firestone and Gibbon Rivers flow together to form the Madison River, and the mountains of the Caldera Rim to the south provide a beautiful setting for the nightly programs.


Available for purchase: Ice (block or cubed), firewood bundles, and vending machine items.

Madison Campground requires a “reservation”. Call (307-344-7311) to make your reservations.
