Yellowstone hikes

Looking for advice on backcountry hikes in Yellowstone, mid-July.
No major stream crossings, no major threat of bears. Moderate in elevation changes. Nice area, not recently burned.
6 to 8 miles in to a camping spot, then back out again.

Anybody have some favorites they'd like to share?

I would recommend Slough Creek for a moderate hike across a beautiful, open meadow(s) with great Rocky Mountain views. I'm not sure about tent sites, but I am sure they are within reasonable distance of the trailhead (which is also a camping area). I recommend you make reservations ASAP and also visit these pages to ask your question:

Enjoy your trip to wonderland,

My advice is this: since Yellowstone is only a short drive from the Grand Tetons, go there to hike. There are many beautiful trails from easy to difficult. Much nicer than Yellowstone and less crowded. Death canyon is great, and not as sever as it sounds.
The Alaska Basin is great as well.
