We like the Lamar Valley and stay at Pebble Creek or Slough Creek. Pebble is a bit further east but has a very short access road. Slough Creek has a long access road (maybe a mile?) but is beautiful. No hook ups, but you can pre-arrange for a truck to come by and fill your water and empty your grey/black tanks for a fee.

Fishing Bridge

We stayed 3 nights each at Fishing Bridge and Grizzly last June. We had a fantastic time in Yellowstone and hope to return in a few years.

Fishing Bridge is basically just a parking lot with hookups surronded by forest. No complaint, however, because we enjoyed having hookups while we stayed inside the park. We made reservations several months ahead of time and it was full when we arrived. I would do it again even though you have no television, no fire ring, no cell phone coverage and not even a picnic table.

Grizzly RV park was one of the nicest RV parks I have ever seen. Geographically, splitting our time between Grizzly and Fishing Bridge worked out very well.

Not much seclusion available in the summer at established RV sites from what we saw.

The first time we were back there we had reservations at an RV park in Pinedale that looked great on the website, but was a dive when we got there. We moved on, but then I was worried about getting a place that time of year.

My back-up plan was to boondock in the National Forrest which we can do out here in most places. I don't know if there is a local prohibition on camping out in the woods there.

We were able to get the last spot available at the Teton Villiage KOA. In July. You never know...

That's exactly why we stay at Pebble creek. Very close to great fishing for Sam. Mountain biking is VERY limited in the park. I settled for road riding, which I thought would be terrifying with the camper traffic (figuring there'd be a lot of newbie drivers in rental RVs). But I found drivers were among the most considerate I've ever encountered.

Just outside the park, I've had some of the best mountain biking of my life.

Oh- and you definitely want to go after Labor Day.

Our favorite place to camp is the Madison CG. You can walk down to the river and throw a few flies in the evening. It does not have the hook ups that Fishing Bridge does, but it is a much nicer setting and a great location.

Bridge Bay

Here's a picture of our campsite at Bridge Bay Campground inside the park. No hookups, but I loved having a fire ring, table, and some privacy. This was in 2005 with my first trailer. It's a 23 foot model which I believe is equivalent to a 25 foot Airstream. Four of us stayed five nights with one trip to the dump station. There was enough room that my parents could park their van right next to the trailer.

I have to agree, Madison is very nice. Dry camping only. If you have large trailer your site options are limited.

Dave, thanks, but the wife does not necessarily see it that way


I have stayed at a CG about 18 miles W of Cody twice. Nice views, almost alone, but then the first time it had just quit raining (and it was almost all gumbo, so had to walk pebble by pebble) and second time the wind blew so hard it would flap the aluminum underbody up and down. Still nice views and almost alone...

Another downside to Fishing Bridge is that there are no picnic tables, grills or fire rings. The rangers explained it as a way to keep the human/bear interactions to a minimum. A mite specious as this is not the case at any of the non full hook-up campgrounds. Personally, I think it is so the concessionaire can cram RV's even closer together.

An interesting phenomena -- if you drive 1.8 miles east of Fishing Bridge towards the East Gate you will find a pull out on the south (your) side of the road. Here you will have two sticks of Verizon Wireless. We drove over every other day or so to check e-mail. One of the park volunteers told us of the place. Had no signal anywhere else in the park.
