The biggest let down is that most of the campsites do not have showers. To shower we had to go to canyon, Old faithful Inn, or Grant. Old faithful in was 3.50 a person to shower there, more if you didn't bring your own towel. But the bathrooms/showers were clean and very fancy.
We stayed in campground G. You can still hear the road traffic, but it is a tent only area so no generators (no offense to those of you lucky enough to have one). The tent area had lots of trees and we asked to move to a different site because my screen tent couldn't fit over the picnic table (it was raining) because the trees were closely around the table. Because we showed up early (at 11am), we were able to switch spots. I would show up early to ensure you like your spot and if not, can try and move.
Lots of critters come into camp at night. Saw elk and a little fox scurry off out of sight. The river is lovely and my little brother panned for gold. The campground is clean with flush toilets and there are lots of bear boxes around to put your stuff in. Also, they don't want you washing your dishes anywhere but in the SINGLE dishwashing room located in the bathroom building. You have to be fast because a line forms behind you quickly. I would recommend heating up the dishwashing water, washing your dishes at camp, then go dump and rinse the water in the SINGLE room.
Oh, and you don't get reception very well in the camp and the only outlets are in the bathroom. Well one outlet anyway. And people will leave items hooked up to charge them all hours of the day. I had a Goal Zero solar panel and car charges, so didn't need the outlet.
