We stayed at Grizzly RV park in West Yellowstone and it is a 10+ park, walking distance to everything.

Fishing Bridge RV Park has no fire rings or picnic tables because it is located in a Grizzly rich area. Last year, a few were seen moving through the area but none hung around. That is generally a good thing.

So I'll probably stay at the west entrance and just rough it with the traffic etc. Also I read where Headwaters RV Park's sewer hookups in some sites too high off the ground to use successfully, that is a concern, I do not want to have to look for another location and burn a day doing that. I also heard some of Fishing Bridges and Colter Bay Village are too high too.

Headwaters RV is Flagg ranch and is several miles south from the south entrance to Yellowstone. Mostly sandy sites but plenty of shade, and there is a restaurant and store on site with booze and fuel. For us it was a good way to tour both Yellowstone and Grand Teton. You do have some driving to do for example Old Faithful was about a 60 mile drive one way...

Fishing bridge is a gravel site with a hard surface access road. The sites are supposed to be angled which gives you the feeling of more space.

We were there last Fall. The first set of loops have been replaced. The back loops were a bit worse for wear.

FB is about the only park that we reserved in our first year of camping.

Brother uses the more primitive CGs inside the park and enjoys a he discount for being over the hill.

If you go to see, FB is ok. If the visit is an emotive experiences, you may not be so happy there, but it is certainly the most convenient.

Travel safe. Pat

Just left there last week. All we needed was a clean site easy access,full hookups, close to everything... Fishing bridge did this. No pick nick table no fire ring. Great store walking distance , visitors center( walk down to the beach behind it and relax once!) all you need is to sleep and eat, right? Cause you're in YELLOWSTONE!

Has anyone had luck with Norris campground which is first come first serve? It's the only first come first serve that allows generators and we've been having problems with batteries. Also I'm confused on length. We have a 27 ft and pull with a F250. I never heard there was a length requirement.
Thanks in advance to anyone that replies!
We've stayed at Headwaters Flag Ranch and not too impressed. Other option is Grizzly RV park but want the full camping experience. A lot of those places don't have a fire pit.

Norris is nice but has limited long RV sites. Mammoth has larger sites, no resv. and allows gennies. You may have better luck there as it is the last one to fill up. Check out this page which gives all the info on CG's. There is only a length problem if you reserve in advance and can't fit into the site, and there is no other site available,

Fishing Bridge at Yellowstone

A couple of years ago we stayed at Fishing Bridge. We made reservations the first part of January of that year because I needed their largest location since we had a 42 foot mh . It was tight backing into the spot but we were successful. Everybody is correct that it is like Walmart with grass but we were looking for location and hookups. I left our grill outside after cooking and the ranger came by and asked that we put it away since it would attract animals, especially bears. They were nice about it and we quickly put it in the coaches basement.

We stayed at Fishing Bridge one night and then went to Norris early next morning (4:00 am), we were 3rd in line and got the best camping spot available! Very lucky as there are only two 50' spots and we got one! Very nice campground. Stayed there 3 nights. 😊
