We tent camped inside YNP in 2000 and found it very comfortable with good facilities. More recently, with our Airstream, we found the park CG's full and camped outside West Yellowstone in the Nat'l Forest. Nice sites with electric only. Water and dump nearby. Lots of sites and only $8. ( with Access pass several years ago)

There are many excellent campgrounds and boondocking possibilities in the national forests surrounding both Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Some are minutes off the main highways, many others are reached by good gravel roads. And for the adventurous, many sites at more remote areas. Something for everyone in God's country.

Has anyone been turned away for length restriction in Grants campground in Yellowstone. I have a 2011 Toyota Tundra and a 2010 23FB? That measures to be 43ft bumper to bumper. The campground description says 40ft or less on their website.

I think you will find that they only calculate the trailer length. You will have to drop the trailer to fit, but should not be a problem. If you are really worried, call the park. They are quite helpful. Pat

you won't have any trouble. We camped in Grant Village with a Tundra CrewMax and our 19'. It was a back-in site.

We now also have a 23FB and would probably book a drive-through next time.

We saw a rig with a large Ram 2500 crewcab pulling a fifth wheel, which in turn was pulling an ATV trailer. It was probably pushing 60'-65' total length. He fit in a drive through but was overhanging. The rangers did not ask him to leave.

As previously noted, the length noted on the sites refer to the trailer length.

This is my favorite place to stay on the west side of yellowstone - it's about 12 miles from the park, off the beaten path and has a great view - ask for one of the sites at the edge of the park for an unobstructed view of meadows and mountains.

I called the reservation center and the lady said I was 3 feet over even though I told her I had an overhang of 7 feet from the trailer back bumper to back axle. She told me they were strict at the park and would hate for me to drive there and get turned away.

take a look at this website of pictures: http://www.campsitephotos.com/campgr...nt-Village-002

You can see the various trailers in there. Are you sure you don't have a 19' plus the Tundra of about 20' for a total of 39'????

One other suggestion; the roads around the campsites are one way so you would want to reserve a site that you pull in on the right so that your trailer door is facing the picnic table and fire ring, and not the road.

Well I called the Yellowstone Reservation back and the sites are definitely based on the combined length of truck and trailer. I questioned the lady about the sites I saw in the pictures from the link Steamy1 provided and she told me they had sites up to 50ft long. The pulldown menu from their website did not give an option for greater than 40ft. I did get a reservation from the different lady so I will see Yellowstone this summer.

We stayed in Fishing Bridge. It's tight and hardly a place to sit around a campfire, which is prohibited anyway. If I were to do Yellowstone again, then I'd stay there again.

To me, Yellowstone is hardly a place to stick around the campsite. We were out all day every day. So coming back to the trailer was just to sleep, we ate at the cafeteria as well. It was nice to have full hookups.

We have reservations at Fishing Bridge for just that reason,full hookups to sleep and eat at. When visiting you are so busy it's nice to go back to.

You are absolutely correct. Campsites in National Parks are for eating and sleeping. Packing them is preserves more of the park.

Fishing Bridge - Attempt to get a site in one of the four front loops. The roads on those loops were recently surfaced. The upper loops have older roads, which work, but have more chuck holes to dodge. Also, FB is supposed to be Grizzly territory. That came from another ASer so it must be true. We saw no animals in the FB camp ground other than ground squirrels and puppy dogs, but.......

We recently purchased a National Geographic video Series on the Geography of National parks. The lecture is a bit scholastic, but there is no test and the info does explain why the Teton and Yellowstone parks are so different. It's all quite interesting. Pat
