There is a TripAdvisor Yellowstone site with a lot of info. That site might help.

We camped at Henry's Lake State Park in Idaho. It is very close to West Yellowstone and just made daily trips from there. We had a pull-through site that fit our supercrew cab F150 and our 29 ft. fifth wheel. It's a beautiful location on the lake, but the wind came up every night. No problem in the trailer with the awning retracted, but broke tent poles and the pole on a canopy. No sewer hookup, but had water and electric.

We have the same truck and similar trailer. We are staying at Flagg Ranch then at Grizzly in W. Yellowstone in June. I tried to reserve at Colter Bay but they said they couldn't accommodate the trailer length. No problem at Flagg Ranch or Grizzly though. I didn't try the campgrounds inside Yellowstone.

You can camp at West Yellowstone and avoid the problems.

What is the distance/drive time from west yellowstone? It just kills me that I have to pay $70+ to stay further away and outside the park...but sometimes it is worth paying for less aggravation. We are also staying 2 days in Headwaters after YS so I guess I could look there also and just stay the week there and drive the 40+ miles each way, each day...

From West Yellowstone to Fishing Bridge about 45 minutes. We have done all the park from there over the years.

Still looking into other options but would like to stay within the park if possible...but sometimes things just aren't possible...such a beautiful place that is should a headache to stay at...
I was told the same thing.. wait till they open for the season and talk to someone on site. Trouble is after it opened and I tried that, some central rez guy told me they would not give me the number to the local CG office. It took pleading, threatening and a supervisor to finally get the number. These central rez people really only know how to take your credit card number.

Unfortunately, they don't pre-assign site numbers or you could google it and see if there are photos online.

If you stay at Grizzly RV park or Buffalo Crossing RV park you could walk to the West Entrance of Yellowstone NP. But as Herkerr said, it is a 45 minute drive to Fishing Bridge. Yes, Yellowstone NP park is HUGE!

We stay at the KOA(s) in West Yellowstone.

Traffic delays will greatly increase the 45 minutes to Fishing Bridge. Plan when you will be traversing the park vs sightseeing.
