The first thing I tell everyone about Yellowstone NP is Grand Teton NP is just 4 miles from the south entrance of Yellowstone and is a ďmust see.Ē
The only campground in Yellowstone NP that has full hookups is Fishing Bridge. If you stay here be sure to tell the reservationist how big your rig is so you get a site you can fit into. All other campgrounds within the park donít have any hookups at all.
If you plan to stay outside the park I always recommend staying as close to the parkís entrance as you can.
If you come in from the south Colter Bay RV Park in Grand Teton NP has full hookups. Also Flagg Ranch has full hookups and is just 2 miles from the south entrance. When we stayed at Flagg Ranch many years ago they only had 20 amp service but itís my understanding they have since upgraded electric service. You might want to check on this if you plan to use Flagg Ranch.
The west entrance of Yellowstone is right in the town of West Yellowstone, MT. There are a number of campgrounds in the area. We always stay at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park which is 3 blocks from the parkís entrance. Also just as close is Buffalo Crossing RV park but it is a gravel parking lot that was turned into an RV park with full hookups.
The north entrance of Yellowstone is in Gardiner, MT and this is where the iconic Roosevelt Arch is located. There are two RV parks in town, Rocky Mountain RV Park and Yellowstone RV Park. IMO, itís six of one half dozen of another. Yellowstone RV Park has some sites right along the Yellowstone River while Rocky Mountain RV Park has some great views.
Thereís nothing close to the northeast or east entrance of Yellowstone with full hookups.
Thatís about all I can offer.
