Cool Yellowstone National Park

I'm heading up to Yellowstone National Park in early summer of 2007. Any ideas of a good RV park ? I'll need full hook-ups as my 1972 31' Landyadt doesn't have a grey water holding tank.

Thanks,

David, there are park campgrounds there. We stayed in one no more than 4 months ago. It was nice, but not blue ribbon entertainment. Since we get our kicks walking on trails, and being off the beaten track, it was more than adequate. Check google, and see if there is a reservation system.

http://www.yellowstonerv.com/ Grand Teton Park RV Resort

http://www.mtrv.com/Activities.html Yellowstone's Edge RV Park

We have used both of these campgrounds several times and they are our favorites outside the park, plan to drive some distance each day into the parks however. They are very nice. We would stay at one while visiting the Tetons then the other when over in Yellowstone. We have stayed in the park campgrounds and driving is cut considerably but so is your elbow room. I can't remember which in park campgrounds have hook-ups. We usually camp off season so the in park campgrounds with hookups are closed.

These are web grabs, the first is edge of Yellowstone the second at Moran Juction.

Most if not all the Park Service camp grounds in the park are dry only.
There are several in West Yellowstone that have full hookups.
check.

Greetings David-

Sandi and I stayed at Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone. We were there for six days so we wanted full hook-up. It iws located sort of the middle of everything and there is a good store ($$) and gas right there. But beware, you are packed in like sardines. If you decide to stay in the park make reservations now if you are staying for more than three days. About every other night they are full. We were last there this pasy September and that is really the best time to be there. More wildlife and less crowds. Have fun!

If the holding tank is the issue, have you considered getting a blue tank? That would let you stay in the NPS run campgrounds which are far cheaper than Fishing Bridge, and FAR nicer. I know this is a anwser to a question you didnt ask, but I thought I would toss it out there anyway. For what its worth, you are going to love yellowstone. Give yourself plenty of time, early moring and late afternoon are best for wildlife viewing, low(er) crowds, and photography. If it were me I would reserve a spot for my arival night at one of the Bantera run campgrounds in the park (Canyon for example) and then move out into one of the smaller campgrounds the following morning. Have a great trip!

Another choice is Flagg Ranch, located between Grand Teton and Yellowstone. It's well shaded, great lodge for store, restaurant, gifts, heavily populated in summer, but still, space for units. If you are doing both parks, Flagg Ranch is a good mid point to locate for day tripping. You are going to have to do some driving wherever you camp if you want to see lots while there. Like others, I recommend early summer or fall to avoid the summer congestion. Enjoy your planning and the journey! ~G

David -

Fishing Bridge, as already mentioned, is the only full-hookup campground in the Park. My favorite, for a trailer not needing full-hookups is Grants Village. Fishing Bridge is on the north side of Yellowstone Lake, and Grants is on the south side, both of which are about as central as you can get, depending on which part of the Park you want to see on which day.

Grizzly Campgound in West Yellowstone is probably the nicest, closet campground to the Park offering full hookups, and West Yellowstone offers the best roadway for travel into the Park. (once you've experienced Yellowstone's roads you'll better appreciate the significance.)

After going to Yellowstone for vacations and fishing for the past 30 years, and now spending the entire summer and fall in that part of the country for the past 6 years, my wife and I have permanently settled into the Yellowstone's Edge RV Park, which is the best overall full-hookup RV park in that part of the country, in our opinion.
It is located on Hwy 89, about 35 miles north of the Park, and 19 miles south of Livingston, MT.
It is a bit of a long drive to get into the Park on a daily basis from there, however we have friends who stay there (from Texas, coincidentally) that drive into the Park almost every day for weeks on end. It must be a Texas thing?

John

Ennis?

You may also want to check out the campgrounds in Ennis, MT (about an hour north half way between Yellowstone and BOzeman. Ennis is a colorful little town that - hopefully - someday I will retire to. Right on the Madison River (great flyfishing) and Ennis Lake. Easy access back to Yellowstone and up to Bozeman other Montana sights.

Grand Teton campground recommendations

We are also traveling to the Grand Teton/Yellowstone area this summer. Our goal is to stay in Grand Teton, and so we are looking for recommendations. Does anyone have experience with Coulter Bay or Flagg Ranch campgrounds within the park?

We stayed at the KOA in West Yellowstone last summer and were very pleased with it. It was easy to get into the park. If you come in from the east side be ready for some very serious road construction- narrow and gravel.

This past Sept., Julie and I stayed for four nights at Grand Teton Park RV Resort while scouting around the Tetons NP. A bit of a drive but a nice one and if you call early enough, ask for the space on the end. You'll have an unobstructed view of the valley. You can also see the Tetons from most, if not all, of the spaces. All spaces have full hook-ups.

We also spent four nights at the Red Rock RV Campground a ways outside of West Yellowstone. A bit far to drive in to Yellowstone everyday, IMO, but a beautiful place and not too far from Henry's Lake. Up on a hill with small trees and while we were there it got windy.

Too bad we didn't know you were there Rick and Sandi or we would have looked you up.
