Fishing Bridge RV Park

End all the stress and reserve a centrally located site in the center of the park. Make that site your base camp...tour a section of the park each day returning to your base camp site each night. I feel that this system works best. Enjoy your breakfast at your campsite and your evening meal when you return from each day's tour. When we spent a week there many years ago we reserved at what back then was called "Fishing Bridge Campground" full hook-ups and centrally located. We enjoyed our full week in prime summer season. The park was very busy...many tourists...everything takes more time than you think it will....Buffalo routinely block the roads...traffic and more traffic...Yellowstone is very popular...lots of people and lots of Buffalo, Elk, Bears and other critters!

Plan ahead and enjoy! Avoid stress and reserve your campsite....why waste time and energy running around looking for a campsite?

Happy Camping!

We also visited Fishing Bridge RV Park to make use of the Laundromat and can offer the following:

1. It has all of the ambience of a typical RV park, don't expect to park under nice trees or have any degree of privacy. Basically all sites appear to be fully exposed to the sun all day long.
2. It is heavily populated by large motorhomes and trailers, complete with slides and anything else you can imagine.
3. You DO NOT get the 50% Sr. discounts found at any of the other campgrounds
4. Reservations for Summer 2016 (Starts in early May 2016) are now open
5. There is currently a major expansion project under way to make room for more RV's
6. All sites are $47.50 a night, full hook-ups and include 2 shower uses a day.

As long time campers, we always put our food in bear boxes. Is this precaution needed with a trailer? We're heading out to Yellowstone!

Not mention of that with hard-sided trailers. But DO NOT leave anything outside when you are away from your campsite or overnight, including water, coolers etc.

Bob Miller is correct on all points. The way I look at the camping at Yellowstone is this: We did not go to Yellowstone to spend much time at the RV park...we went to tour Yellostone for all the daylight hours two meals and sleep in our RV...the full hookups are great...shower everyday and no over full holding tanks to be concerned about..enough room to put out your awning if you want to sit outside....we had some grizzly bear activity during our stay...the park rangers moved them out on Yellowstone be careful of wild life...buffaloes and bears are the real danger so give them plenty of is after all there park.

Happy Camping!

Don't even leave a cooler inside your trailer or vehicle, in a way that it can be seen through a window. Some bears have learned to recognize coolers and will rip your door off to get it.
