I agree with Panhead, Fishing bridge is not a good place, way too crowded, try madison

We are also planning a trip to Yellowstone and GTNP (July 2015). We've made reservations at Colter Bay Village already and are trying to work out our Yellowstone plans.

Excluding Fishing Bridge, what are the best "reservation" campgrounds in Yellowstone NP? We like Canyon Village (bathrooms, showers and laundry) and Madison (no facilities). Any concerns with either of these with a large travel trailer (37-feet)?

Below is a link to camping info in Yellowstone. Some have length restrictions.

Everyone who has been to Yellowstone has a favorite spot, and someone else didn't care for it. I guess that's the way the world works. Being a very popular destination for a short tourist season means they have to try and satisfy millions of visitors in a short span. Being in the mountains presents more limitations. Campsite space is limited to accommodate as many people as they can.

The good news for us was we didn't do much more than sleep in our TT at Grant's Village. There is always something new to see or do there. The site was big (deep), but parking was close. Yellowstone is going to be crowded in the good weather months, but you will still have a great time.

When I mentioned to DW we were doing a Yellowstone thread on the forum, she said "Tell them to bring food". Food is available, but it's expensive.

Also, I would go the park's site and browse it thoroughly for the details that interest you. Those folks have entertained so many guests they pretty much have things figured out and most of your questions have already been answered.

a must see

we stayed at the west Y koa, it was the closest to the park, VERY nice CG. you should take a drive on the Beartooth Mtn road, off the NE entrance road to Y NP. Charles Kuralt called it one of the most beautiful drives in US. Do not drive your MH on it, just your toad. Well worth it.Security: Password 48

We stayed at Colter Bay in 2013 for three days and loved it...people we're friendly and it was very scenic. We then spent the rest of our week long vacation at Fishing Bridge. Not the best NP RV park that we've stayed at, but it was central to many of the areas we wanted to see in Yellowstone. Enjoy the Tetons and Yellowstone...two unforgettable destinations!

We went in early May around 20 years ago and it was beyond beautiful. There was a lots of snow and a few places were not open yet but no a problem. We have been back several times since but my favorite was early May. No matter when you go it will be great.

Need to talk to DW about going back.

I have stayed at Yellowstones Edge RV Park on US 89 S between Livingston Mt and YNP for years. Excellent RV park in every respect with helpful owners Pam and Chan Libbey. 30 miles from north entrance to the park, close to Chico Hot Springs Resort.

Just my $.02

Totally agree! Stay in the park, but at one of the other campgrounds.
