You'll Love It
Yepper, it'll be crowded in the park but it's worth it. I've never camped inside the park but in several trips there I've stayed in hotels around there and also at campgrounds.
Buffalo Bill State Park is just west of Cody and is not far from Yellowstone. The park is nothing fancy but there is nothing but sheer beauty in any direction and it sits on a lake. Provisions are easy to get in nearby Cody, too. It's inexpensive and is guarded by Park personnel at the gate and I've never seen it crowded there.
There's a KOA in Cody also. Crowded, though.
Hotels in Cody will not be cheap, even cabins out back of the Best Western will run you a C-note a night.
You'll HAVE to ride the Beartooth (US 212 to Red Lodge, Montana). It runs 62 miles (about a 2 1/2 hour ride) from the NE entrance to Yellowstone east to Red Lodge. There's a KOA in Red Lodge, too.
Chief Joesph HWY from Cody to NE Entrance is a great ride as well.
Then there's Grand Tetons NP bordering the south of Yellowstone, near Jackson.
Cody or Buffalo Bill SP is a good launching point for day trips in any direction. Or relocate from one site to another.
You'll love it up there.
