Grizzly RV Park West Yellowstone

Planning a late May trip to Yellowstone with the wife and 3 young kids. We are planning to stay at Grizzly RV Park, rather than inside the park, because we want full hookup for 5 nights with 3 kids. Any feedback on that RV park and anything not to miss in Yellowstone? Been 19 years since I was there!

X2 on that. Fishing Bridge inside Yellowstone is full hookup. It's a little tight but it stays full, it's kinda like parking at Walmart.

We stayed there for 4 days back in June---Excellent! Nice facilities, nice location (walking distance to many places downtown), and very friendly staff. You will not be disappointed!

Love that park, have stayed there many years. Last year we had three adjoining sites for the whole family. This is very best RV park in the Yellowstone area. You can walk to town where there are good restaurants, museums and much more.

Grizzly is the best in town. If you're going in early May expect snow. They had snow piled up higher than our trailer when we were there May 7th.
There were no crowds then. A big plus was because it was still cold we could see the steam from the geysers all over the place. We've been there in the summer months but you only see the water gushing not the huge columns of steam rising. Quite spectacular really.
Happy trails,

Tried to book KOA's at west Yellowstone entrance area in late May two years ago. They were still digging out of winter snow. Check opening dates carefully. Also, some roads in the park can be closed through May.

Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone is one of the best Parks we have stayed in. VERY clean and well laid out. It is within walking distance of town and and you MUST go to the Wolf and Grizzly Center (you can walk to it.) If you have time, doing the Cooke City Highway is magnificent!! I don't know how long your RV is. Anything too big could be a challenge!! There is much to see in the Park. Also, if you go out the south entrance, you can drive through Grand Teton National Park, into Jackson Hole. The Virginian RV Park is VERY nice. You can catch the city bus just across the street that will take you downtown and it's free!! We also went on to Cody, Wyoming. Stayed at the Ponderosa RV Park. It is three blocks from the Buffalo Bill Historical Center - a must see in Cody. There is so much to see and do in Cody!! If you are interested, let me know. Have fun!!
