I would suggest Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone.

July trip to the Yellowstone/Grand Teton

Last June we stayed at the Yellowstone Marina and RV resort. It's about 15 minutes outside of Yellowstone but on the edge of Hebgen Lake. We booked a lakeside site (P11) and had fantastic views. The staff are friendly and the campground very quiet. The sites are big rig friendly and all full hook up. The washrooms and showers are immaculate. Wherever you stay, I would recommend bringing as much food and fuel with you as possible. The gas stations keep their prices high and there is only one grocery store in town that is also on the expensive side.

You can rent boats from here to go onto the lake but we took our inflatable kayak and had a great time.
If you do go and leave the trailer unattended, make sure your awning is rolled in. The winds get up very quickly with little to no warning.

Last summer we stayed for a week at Yellowstone's Edge RV Park. Sites were extremely clean and level. Host upon pulling in came out and greeted me despite the fact they were very busy. Ten minutes later upon checking in he escorted us to our site. It is a short ride to Livingston and also to the west gate at Yellowstone. Also 15 mins away is a hot spring that we checked out and went for a dip. There is a river that runs along the backside of the park. Alot of people were fishing however I was not. Yellowstone was our stop on the way back from Seattle and then we went onto Glacier. We loved Glacier so much that we have booked 2 weeks there this July. Have a great time!

If you haven't made reservations already you won't get a spot inside the park. There is only one "CG" inside the park with hookups. "Fishing Bay CG" I think.
A person on another forum always recommends to stay outside Yellowstone. He likes staying at the Tetons. He knows that area like the back of his hand.

KOA south of Livingston Mt. is a nice place. The KOA south of Jackson WY. is way overcrowded. Grant Village in Yellowstone is nice but has no hookups, stayed there in 09'. Stayed in the Jackson KOA in 09' and was a good place but in 12' they had jammed in a bunch of big cabins and makes for a tight place. Was dusty,noisy and busy when we were there last.

If you can get by with just electricity, there is a forest campground, Wapiti, West of Cody, East of Yellowstone's east entrance, that offer electrical hookups.

Where will you be staying in Glacier? We will be there the last part of June, and haven't decided where to stay yet.

Thanks, and Happy Trails, Forrest
