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?
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.
