Boondocking at Bridge Bay YNP


Was wondering if anyone had any advise for Boondocking at Bridge Bay. Below are a few questions i have. I have never stayed at this camprground and it will be our first time Boondocking.

I have generators and a portable to empty our tanks. I heard the lines for the dump stations are terrible.

1- Generators- Does everyone run a generator? Seems like it would be very loud, but I don't want to be the only one running one during the day.

2. How do you refill your water tank with no water hook up? Not sure what the best practice would be?

3. Any other advise about this campground would be greatly appreciated.

Actually, what you're doing is "dry camping", since it's a developed campground.
Technically, Boondocking is camping in undeveloped areas, like the desert or National Forest land.
All of YNP campgrounds have generator hours, except Fishing Bridge campground since they have full hookups there. Lots of campers run their generators.
Hope your generators are inverter generators. If they are open frame contractor-style generators, they will be too loud.
We're experienced dry campers and use a 6 gallon water jug to shuttle water. We too have a tote tank for gray water and an inverter to power the tv and recharge electronic devices.
