Public Property/Natural and Cultural Features
The possession, injury, destruction, removal, or disturbance of park property or natural resources, including animals, plants, minerals, cultural, and archaeological objects is prohibited. This includes collecting rocks, cobbles, plants, marine organisms, other natural materials, and historic objects and artifacts.

Will they search a vehicle for a rock...no. Will they stop you if they see you doing it...most likely. Will you get a ticket? Depends on the ranger.

But thousands of people do it every year!

We stayed at Fishing Bridge a few years ago. Found it to be pretty nice. Hook ups were new. We really were only at the RV during nights. Yellowstone is pretty awesome. We'll be back. It is a big park, so just consider that if staying outside the park.

Stayed in West Yellowstone in 2014 over the fourth of July, weather was great but it was real crowded.

Rustic Wagon Campground is like a mile or so from the west gate.

Fireworks were very nice, got to Ol' Faithfull before the crowd showed up so we got good seats.

Book now!

I just booked two nights in West Yellowstone (at the KOA, because we will have two 16 year old boys with us that will like the amenities, two nights at Fishing Bridge, and will book two nights in Jackson later tonight. We will be there the third week of July. My biggest issue in the park is that while my motorhome is a shorty at 24.5 feet, we will be towing my Jeep, and combined length put me out of a lot of sites. I can't wait though! I love Yellowsrone, and I've been wanting to go back for several years.

If I was only 24ft I would unhook and stay at Canyon or Madison. Me and my fifth wheel is about 2ft to long to stay there but I have stayed there with a shorter fifth wheel.

We are doing Michigan -> Grand Tetons -> Yellowstone -> Glacier -> Michigan over 3 weeks.

We booked Canyon for 3 nights. We will stay on EST and do the high traffic sites in the morning. The nice thing about Canyon is you can do a lot of hiking from the campground, so once the rest of the park gets busy we can relax and hike from the campground.

PM me for exact dates


If you are going to hike off the beaten path (more than 1/2 mile from trail-heads) I would suggest buying bear spray - Counter Assault Bear Deterrent Spray - 10.2 oz. - REI.com

Sorry for the late reply but we stayed at Fishing Bridge inside of the park last year. It was very nice with full hook ups. The one thing I liked is that there is a lot of space between rigs. We set up our trailer and spent four days driving around the area. The stores are within walking distance if you choose to walk. We drove out to the east end of the park and found that the traffic was much less congested with many great look outs. The weather there can change dramatically really fast so be prepared. It actually hailed on us during a warm day!
