We stayed there 3 years ago and the same potholes that were there then are still there. The pothole at the dump station was more like a crater. Areas of the camp road can flood, so that the trash bin is not accessible and people throw their trash onto the top from a distance (bad practice in grizzly bear habitat). The campground is Zanterra run under contract to NPS and is poorly maintained. Sites are crammed together. The campground requires "hard body" but tenters camp alongside RV'ers a few miles down the road in the NPS campground. NPS camp sites are water-only. The Madison NPS campground is much closer to the geysers, has large level sites, with good paved roads, for $8 (half Federal fee with Golden Age pass). We stayed at Fishing Bridge (for the 2nd time) because we were unaware of the alternatives, and why I am posting this review.

We arrived to find green stuff bubbling out of the sewer in the site next to us. At our site, the area around the sewer connection had quarter and dime sized pieces of toilet paper stuck on the gravel. The pool, game room, and sauna are closed until after Memorial Day. Staying here means avoiding the 20 mile 6% downgrade to Sedona.

This is a great campground to go see Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert (visit parks from the south entrance on 180). Lady at the check-in made us feel welcome, very friendly atmosphere. All sites are pull through, and each site has multiple sewer connection options (no need for long hose). Everything was clean. Holbrook is a small friendly town with a great Safeway grocery.

The park is right off of I-95. Easy in and out. They put us in the pull-thru sites up front, and we didn't even have to disconnect. Everything was very clean. Convenient.

The best full hookup site is 62 with a great view; best electric-water was 52 with its own stairway down to the beach along the lake.
