This is a NEW / Upgraded park with everything you would want.
Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park and Cabins

The town that it is in has very good restaurants and all the tourist stuff you could imagine. You can get your propane tanks filled up at the propane gas and propane accessories dealer at a savings over trading your tanks.

The Gate to the park is within a mile or 2 from the town.

If U R old enough, get your Golden Age card at the park gate so you will never have to pay to get into another national park again. It is good for everyone in your vehicle.

Join GOOD SAM to get your 10% discounts at all Good Sam recommended parks. I have been a Good Sam member for years and find that their discount is well worth the joining price. The joining price also includes discounts at Camping World (The Good Sam Owner).

We also belong to KOA.

I don't like any other camping clubs. I find that the others are just to limited in the parks where I want to stay and some have black-out periods for discounts and guess what - Blackouts are during vacation season.

Saw lots of totally insane stuff like that last summer ... sadly shortly before I got to Yellowstone last summer a man had been killed by a grizzly and the area was still roped off. According to the park ranger the man and his wife decided it would be nice to take each others pictures with mamma grizzly and cub in it - kept going back and forth taking each others pictures close to the grizzly & cub - mamma grizzly indicated she did not like them being so close so she started to leave the area with the cub but the couple decided to follow her!!! She turned around and charged them grabbing the women by her backpack and throw her to the ground unhurt - that may well have been the end of it but the husband decided to run over and intervene- not a good idea. Thankfully park management decide that they would not kill the grizzle as a result of this as she had only done what was natural to her - protect her cub.

re Good Sam discounts. Many of the parks the give the discount also give it to people that have AAA or in my case BCAA memberships.

I forgot to mention if you have the US. Seniors Pass (have to be 62) your camping fees in the park are 1/2 price and admission is free. There is a $25 fee good for 7 days in Yellowstone and the Tetons if you aren't 62.

Good cautions, the animals are wild, they are not tame, and they can move darn fast when they want to. They can also mosey down the middle of the road very slowly, and you have to allow that, it is their land and you are the interloper.

More info

At each of the "villages" there is a general store, along with a couple of places to eat. You can get milk, soda, bread, a few fixin's but not a lot of other stuff. The dining usually is a diner sort of place and a much pricier sit-down-dinner place. There are also gas stations.

Cody is out the East entrance, and is 90 miles from Canyon Village, that is at least 2 hours drive time, probably more. There is a nice big Walmart there, though for stocking up before you go into the park.
