Big rules against reserving a spot just for your vehicle. I think the ranger will get involved. They are really picky about that since they are usually full and that makes them turn someone away. If they would put in overflow parking it would solve everything but that might take money away from building another souvenir shop.

We have a hybrid and they are not allowed in Fishing Bridge. We planned to stay in Canyon Village, but when I read that you have to account for the length of both TV and TT, we were WAY over the limit for anything available. So very disappointed as we wanted to stay in the park, but we made a reservation at Grizzly and didn't look back. We are going in late Aug/early September. Hopefully a lot of the big crowds will be gone by then and we won't be sitting in long lines trying to get in or through the park. May be wishful thinking on my part ;-) We'll have fun no matter what!

We have stayed twice in Yellowstone, once in Canyon and twice in Fishing Bridge. Fishing Bridge is tight, I booked 40ft sites there with a 36ft fifth wheel. I had a travel trailer that was 28ft for a 30ft spot and it was tight, it's like parking at Walmart. We could not put our awning out. Canyon was a lot better to get in but a little hard to get level. The Park Rangers told me if you booked a 40ft spot at Canyon or Madison your total length hooked up could not be more than 50ft, 50ft and you were good 51 you could not camp. If you reserved a 30ft spot your camper had better be 30ft or less. Now it could be the roads inside the campground. I took a travel trailer in 08 and they measured me. I also stayed at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone and it was great. Yellowstone is one great place to go, I never worry about traffic in Yellowstone, we are all there for the same things, wildlife and sights. I am going back in June this year, DW and I love Yellowstone. I have been four times, twice without a camper

EXACTLY!
It's the RV industry change to longer, wider and more luxurious rigs, over the decades and the publics desire for such rigs.

Not necessarily true.

Hybrids can stay in Fishing Bridge IF you stay "turtled".

Meaning you don't deploy the tent ends and sleep on the sofa and dinette, like regular smaller TT.

Well, if we bring a tent and set it up in the spot, would that work for them?

Maybe they are being picky about length because of people booking a 35' site and showing up with a 45' combo?

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

...Yes I can agree and fully admit that is one of the reason I wanted to get a site closer to my combo length. I have read on here in the past about people booking site with a similar setup and fitting without issue. I can also understand why that could make them start cracking down. That is also the same reason I am looking for advice on alternatives. I am more than willing to listen if you have any advice to offer, well besides the obvious...

And my apologies for seeming like a moron, I promise I am not, pulled the trigger a little quick, just excited about getting back to the park and sharing the experience with my wife and our new 5'er...
