If you are considering any NPS campgrounds, be aware that some have lenghth restrictions. I noticed that you have a 30 footer.

Water pressure

PS. Make sure your water system is tight. The water pressure is very high at FB, and I found a 'few' leaks, of course.

Best to ALWAYS use a regulator in your hose line if your trailer dose not have one built in.

Thanks to each and every one of you for the good tips. We're definitely cataloging each one for our trip planning efforts.

In 2006 (pre-Airstream) we stayed at Bridge Bay campground. Having no hookups was not a problem because it got so cool at night that you never needed air conditioning.

I've included two photos. The first is a buffalo walking through the open section of Bridge Bay Campground where most of the larger RVs were placed. We had a 25 footer and were assigned a wooded site that was very private. Loved it.

We also liked Bridge Bay because of the central location within the park. In 2007 we couldn't get reservations within the park and stayed in West Yellowstone. It was a pain.

Here's a better photo of the site. The black van in the background is my parent's van and it's parked on the pad. The tent is my brother's and is on our site. You couldn't see any neighbors.

We've stayed in Colter Bay, Gros Ventre, Fishing Bridge, Flagg Ranch, Madison, and Grant Village. Fishing Bridge and Flagg Ranch are parking lots with hookups. I've driven through most of the others, and would consider bridge bay to be my last choice for non-hookup campgrounds. You really don't need the hookups since it's almost always cool enough at night that you don't need AC. Grant Village is my favorite inside the park. It's on Yellowstone lake and still has a fully wooded campground. The village is very close and offers a store, laundry, and $2.00 pay showers. The showers go a long way toward stretching your water supply if you're there for long. If you feel that you have to get hookups I'd recommend Colter Bay but it's very overpriced.
