We were in Yellowstone in July went out the south east entrance and regretted it, lots of steep climbs coming in as mention before the South entrance is probably the easier climb to the park. Grizzly RV park is a nice park close to the main downtown of West Yellowstone. We didn't call for reservations but they still were able to get us a site.

Hi,

My wife and I stayed at Fishing Bridge for 7 days this past June. Then went and stayed 7 days at the Grand Tetons, then 7 Days in Glacier, then own to Mt. Rushmore in SD among other places. Between all the places we went and day trips we went through every entrance of Yellowstone. It really depends on where you are coming from, or going to after the park.

Staying at Fishing Bridge is nice, but it is a no frills rv park, and it is about 60 miles one way to reach Old Faithful. Also, keep in mind that 1) Fishing Bridge is the only Full Hook Up facility within the part, 2) Pretty much every entrance requires at least 20 miles of driving until you reach any 'attractions' so to say, and 3) There is fuel inside the park, and it was over $4 when we were there.

Staying at Fishing Bridge was ok for us, but there was a lot of time spent in the truck just getting too and from various places. We could have spent way more than 7 days there, it just depends on what you want to see. If you want to stay at Fishing Bridge, be sure you book it well in advance. I booked it in January, and at that point there was only one full week available for us to stay all summer. So, we built our trip around that week.

Edit: The West Entrance was by far the busiest entrance we went through! LOOONNNGGG lines to get in!

Fishing bridge

I did not care for the Fishing Bridge. Camping spots were way to close together. We only stayed there one night then moved to Grizzly. They had the cleans restrooms I have seen anywhere.

You can't be in a hurry when you travel through the park. It takes typically 4-6hrs to travel a loop, without stopping(exiting vehicle to site see), during peak times. If you are traveling to a destination for a specific time, be sure to leave plenty early.

It has been a few years since we visited & we like to dry camp. Fishing Bridge is like setting on the Baltimore (or insert any city) beltway during rush hour, bumper to bumper parked RV's. However as already posted, it does have hookups if that is a requirement. The camps on the park loop are wonderful but full. We were lucky & found an open slot from someone who had just pulled out. If you can get a spot in the park, that is where I would recommend.

Oh yes, take your time & enjoy it. It is a great park.

Thanks for the great pics and info, actually spoke with someone from grizzly today and i think we're convinced to stay there, like everyone says its a drive anywhere thru the park , whats another hour or so for the better campground after driving all the way from Florida! We'll be arriving the end of August so hopefully it will be a little less crowded.

Wish we were going now!!
