The following is the link from Yellowstone Park's website with information about the campgrounds inside Yellowstone Park. There are 5 that take reservations (Fishing Bridge RV Campground is hard-sided only so you won't be able to stay there) and 7 campgrounds that are first-come, first-served campgrounds. The link also has a "fill time"chart that gives the time for that day and the previous day when the campground was full. Just a FYI....the time shows in your time zone so you have to adjust it to Mountain Standard Time to get an accurate time the campground fills.

https:/…campgrounds.htm

Where are you coming from before you plan on entering Yellowstone Park? How many days are you planning on staying?

Canyon Campground is the most centrally located campground on the east side (and it takes reservations). Norris is the most centrally located campground on the west side (it's a first-come, first-served campground). The most centrally located campground on the west side that takes reservations is Madison Campground.

My wife and I camped at Madison campground in September. We chose this campground so we could make reservations (it was part of an 11-day trip to the area). We really enjoyed our stay. The location is great for exploring the area between Firehole Canyon and Upper Geyser Basin. By staying here, we were able to explore the Upper Geyser Basin early before the crowds arrived for the day. It's also a great location right along the Madison River. After busy days hiking and sightseeing in Yellowstone, it was nice to take our chairs and relax along Madison River. It was very peaceful and we saw a few elk each evening. Two nice hikes near the campground are Purple Mountain and Harlequin Lake.
