Norris Geyser Basin is right near Norris campground. If you stay there, definitely take a run over at sunset. It's spectacular and nearly empty.

Enjoy.

We have been to Yellowstone 5 times and always stay inside the park at Bridge Bay. This is my favorite Park. Did stay in West Yellowstone one time but it was to much driving to get to the different areas.

I know you didn't ask about sights to see, but someone mentioned Beartooth Pass, and I have to second that - it's a spectacular drive! I also agree with those who urged going to the Grand Tetons and Jenny Lake! In Yellowstone, like others mentioned, expect to see bear ( both black and grizzly), and do follow the rules for "bear camping". Enjoy!

We just returned from the Tetons and Yellowstone a week and a half ago. We stayed at Fishing Bridge. Nothing much to write home about as far as the campsites .....just a parking lot with a tree or two. Full hook-up was nice though since we had been on the road for six days making our way there. Yellowstone was great. Go to old Faithful EARLY. We got there at 8 am, saw the geyser and went into the lodge for breakfast. By the time we had finished breakfast the masses had arrived. Wish we had postponed breakfast....

Also, I forgot to mention they are serious about food storage. We saw several campers with tickets on their doors.....for leaving coolers, BBQ grills, and other camping "goodies" outside. Fine was up to $350.00. The camper next to us got warned.

Thank You all,

You certainly loaded my plate. Planing is part of the fun.
We have never been to Yellowstone or the general area so our stay is open ended.

We got back a few weeks ago from our 9000 mile trip which included Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. We camped at Flagg Ranch which had full hook ups and swarms of Mosquitos. No cell service at all, if that is important. It is just south of the Yellowstone south entrance. We drove all through both Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Grand Teton area is much prettier than Yellowstone, as is the Big Horn Mountain area.

Beartooth pass - oh yeah (shots attached). We traveled to Yellowstone two years ago and stayed in the park (can't recall where), boon docking, and it was great.

My only comment to suggest is about your dogs. We have two good sized dogs and did not bring them on this trip because we wanted to do some hiking and Yellowstone is not a good place for dogs.

I recall the ranger telling us that they were " pet tolerant, not really pet friendly"...and 'unattended pets on a leash are coyote food, please don't feed the wildlife'

IMHO it's a lot like Thanksgiving Friday at Walmart...too many people, no pets allowed and ya need to do it once in your life.

We just got back from Yellowstone NP. We stayed at the park's only hard sided campground which was in Fishing Bridge. I applied for the site about 4 months prior to our trip. I was surprised to get a reservation confirmation the next morning. Perhaps you'll be even luckier and get a site there even sooner! I'd try it - you never know...

I would suggest reservations, as the CGs can fill up. Year before last we were there in October and were surprised at how busy the park was.

Most of the neat thermal features are on the west side of the park. We've stayed at the Grants Village and Bay Bridge CGs. Both were fine though many of the sites in the latter CG were not level-- bring your levelers!

Neither of these CGs has hook-ups, but depending upon how long you want to stay, this isn't a problem if you have a generator and keep an eye on your other systems. We travel with a jerry can or two of water, so we can refill the fresh water on-site.

We thought the Fishing Bridge CG looked like a parking lot, with RVs stacked so close together it would be hard to feel you were in one of the wonders of nature-- esp. if your neighbours have slide-outs.

I recommend hiking off of the beaten path while in YNP. I read that if you hike one mile off the main road, you will get away from 90% of the tourists! My wife and I did this for most of the trip. For example, we saw the Grand Prismatic Spring from the back side, avoiding the busy board walks. We then hiked another mile to Fairy Falls. I only saw two people one I got to the falls. Hopefully, I attached a picture; if not, I will try again.
