For great camp sites above 10,000 feet, check out Inyo National Forest in California, Great Basin National Park in Nevada or The Colorado Trail. Visit www.recreation.gov to get more information and plan for your trip.

There is RVing permitted at Tower Fall, Pebble Creek, and Slough Creek campgrounds in Roosevelt Country. Please visit the National Park Service's website for more information on campgrounds in Yellowstone.

Just to expand on Christie's answer a bit:

Tower Falls campground is the closest to Roosevelt Lodge and stables, and also features a small (compared to other outlets in the park) store and restaurant just across the road from the campground.

However, the sites at Tower Falls are designed for RVs of 30 foot or shorter size, and the campground itself has some steep grades and very sharp turns, if I recall, also, the road between Roosevelt and Tower Falls (only a mile or two, if I recall) is a little twisty. The road in the other direction, toward Mt Washburn and Canyon village, is steep and very twisty.

Slough Creek is the next closest, and in my opinion, nicest of the three options. The campground is set well off the main road in a secluded spot with light trees and a creek/small river running alongside. Like Tower Falls, the RV spots are all limited to 30foot or shorter rigs, but manuvering to and around the site is much easier.

A little further down the road toward Northeast Gate and Cooke City, MT, Pebble Creek is the best option if you have a longer rig and/or need pull through spots. The site is located fairly close to the main road, and facilities at Cooke City are a short drive away. In my experience, this campground has the best chances of wildlife viewing of the three we're discussing, I've seen bear cubs (didn't see momma, but I'm sure she was around), wolves and deer in the valley up there.

It is worth mentioning that according to the park service website, none of these campgrounds have "full hookups" or dump stations, you have to stay down at Fishing Bridge for hookups, though dump stations are available at most of the larger locations (Grant Village, Canyon Village, Fishing Bridge, etc) in the park.

That page at the Yellowstone website has more details on the different campgrounds and their features.
