We were at yellow stone early June and FBCG did not look that bad. There is so much to see and do you will not spend much time there anyways.

Interested in the replies we are scheduling a trip to Yellowstone. I looked at a campground outside the west entrance that was well rated I think. Good Luck!

I use www.rvparkreviews.com for first hand park reviews. And I review every park that I stay in as well. That web site has plenty of comments on Fishing Bridge. My most recent stay at Yellowstone was at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone. We were close to the action with all the amenities of a small town.

Yellowstone RV and Marina would be my recommendation. It's about 15 minutes outside of the town and on the banks of Hebgen Lake. Excellent level, full hook up sites. Clean washrooms and showers. Very courteous staff. We stayed on a lakeside site last year and we really couldn't have been any closer to the water.

Stayed there 3 times since 2006, 11 nights. . Up to 32' length fiver. Very primitive lanes and pads and tight turns. Tight spots to back in. Lots of trees. Good water, power and sewer dumps at sights. Fuel, groceries, souvenirs etc next door. Wild life in immediate area.

Grizzly...

Another vote for Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone. Have stayed there twice, for about a week each time, with extended family (4 trailers and 20+ people all with the same last name -- fun times!!)

Meg -- don't know if you can change your reservation at this point. Good luck!

completely agree. In door swimming pool for the kids, fire pit for marsh mellows, friendly staff, cemented patio areas.

Saw a double rainbow in the summer of 2013, first and only time right after a rain storm.

We stayed at Fishing bridge many years ago.
The sights are tight no question.
No camp fires as I recall but we didn't care!!

IF you have never been to Yellowstone you need to consider location....
Yellowstone is a very big park!! It can take a couple hours to get from
where you are staying to where you want to be in the park.
That's 2 hours each way! That's a lot of your day.
If there are buffalo near a main road it quickly becomes a parking lot!
If you are heading to a far off corner of the park and the cars in
front of you want pictures of big animals you are stuck!
Fishing bridge is more or less central and as others have mentioned
it has a lot going on around it.
We divided the park into 4 "corners" and went in a different direction
every day. We're hikers and our kids are grown so we didn't have them
to contend with. If you've got kids that may change how you operate
in the park.
Fishing bridge will work! It's not gonna be the best RV campground you
ever saw but it could very well be in the middle of the best National Park
you ever visited!

Enjoy your trip!!
Happy Trails!
