Now that I have the Beartooth drive straightened out, I will ask the next question. Figured it would be better here than starting another thread...

I am already booked at Fishing Bridge in YS in Early September, however looking into it further...pictures and youtube videos it appears they really wedge you in there without much room to enjoy the site or the location. Any recommendations on great places to stay just outside of the park?? We want to spend our 5 days in and around the park but have no issues staying outside of it to enjoy the scenery and trip more. Does not need full hookups...but power and water preferred...thanks!

Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone is a great RV park

Try Rocky Mountain RV park in Gardiner, MT. You can see the north entrance to Yellowstone from the park. We spent a week there, nice place. Rocky Mountain RV Park and Lodging Vacation at Yellowstone National Park

We have had good luck with both of the KOA's near West Yellowstone.
Mountainside KOA (a little further west) seems less commercial than West Yellowstone KOA.

Since we are coming from the east and plan on making day trips into the park, plus going to Red Lodge/Cooke, we opted to stay in Cody. We have a bit more drive to the park, but closer to Beartooth/Chief Joseph, Cooke City, and Lamar Valley. This also means less time sitting in traffic in the park. We typically figure 4-6 hours per loop drive time if in the park during peak. While our travel friends won't see all of the park, we'll get them to Old Faithful & canyon falls, plus a few hidden gems we know about, we consider the Beartooth a must see for them.

I believe the sign at the Top of the World recommends RV total lengths under 35'. That is teuck and trailer. Very tight hairpin turns.

Do the chief Joseph Scenic highway too. You can do the whole loop from Cooke city, to red lodge and over belfry. Then down 72 to the Jct 296 that will take you back to Cooke city.

Ps: take warm clothing just in case. We were there in august and crossed the pass at 35*. Cooke city was a balmy 38.
