I stayed at the Mammoth Hot Springs Campground last month. It is a no hookup and first come, first served campground. You have to arrive early to get a spot in the summer. There are some pull-throughs. Fall rut is starting with the elk and there are lots of elk in this area. It would be fun to watch, as long as you keep your distance. There are some videos on the parks' web site of male elk attacking cars.

We stayed at Grizzly RV Park (406-646-4466 or in the town of West Yellowstone, Montana. This private park was the nicest campground in the area. It is the most efficiently designed campground I have seen. The people running the park were very helpful. Though their prices were a little high, around $42 with AAA discount, you have full hookups, cable tv, and WiFi. Plus your in walking distance to the shops of West Yellowstone.

If your looking for less expensive camping, there is a campground in Gallatin National Forest just three miles north of West Yellowstone on US 191. Bakers Hole (406-646-7369) is located on the Madison River. About half the sites had water and electricity. Pit toilets only.

We did look around at a number of campgrounds in the area, but these two were by far the best. There also was a KOA outside of town that wasn't bad, but their prices were higher.

Husband opinion

Saw the pictures of campgrounds and showed my husband. The Grizzly site is what he is trying to avoid, a parking lot. Does that make sense? The pictures of the Baker campground from Hobo looked interesting. I also told him that some campgrounds won't work because we have a wide body trailer. But keep educating us. And also Hobo, great pictures!!!!!!!!!

Most every campground we saw this summer, in or around Yellowstone (or anywhere within 300 miles), was a parking lot. Grizzly had more space then most (though Bakers Hole was better).

And by the way, Cabela's allows overnight RV parking, and they have plenty of space (but no hookups). The one in Mitchell, SD even has a dump station.
