Interior roads narrow with low hanging branches some open sites, some in the trees.
Our site in A loop was a pull through long enough for our 29' class c with dolly & toad, although we had to unhook the dolly & reposition everything in order to fit onto the pad.
Bathrooms were clean, but no showers, or other hookups, dump station & water fill available. Good location to view east side of the park.
Rate reflects Senior Pass. We would stay here again. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We did the Chuckwagon dinner at Roosevelt, nice trip & great meal.

We were a bit disappointed with this facility. The sites are very small and not level!!! We had to move to another site because we exhausted all our levelers and still couldn't open the slide. Fortunately we got there in mid afternoon and they were willing to assign us another space as we were staying four nights. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We have a small 24' motor home and typically don't tow...but we rented a car in Cody (just East of the East Gate) and returned to Jackson (South of the Grand Teton) and we are so glad we did. As advertised the crowds in Yellowstone are crazy this summer. Having a car, just made it easier. Amazed by the size of the park!!!!

Stayed in a 25 foot motorhome in the H section and my comments are based on this only. Bathhouses were clean with toilet, sink, and a great stick your hands in the slot hand blower dryer. The CG is on a slope with several loops and tarmac paved roads and sites. Sites are varied back end singles and double, and by the road pull throughs. Only a rare few are level. Most are mildly to badly un-level front to back and side ways. Many are very short. There were all sorts of leveling device attempts by campers trying to level their campers. Many campers had tents and canopies beside the paved sites. There were several non threaded faucets in the CG by the bathhouses. The main attraction for this CG is of course Yellowstone itself. So I rate this CG as only average for its own features. We actually were by luck assigned to an only sightly un-level site. This H section is heavily wooded and beautiful as a woodland. If there were the money to redo the CG, bulldozing new level and adequately sized sites would really make this a nice CG. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Typical National Park camping so we know what to expect and there were no disappointments. It appears pretty rough terrain for tents with no designated tent pads. So for anyone tenting, depending on your site, it could be a pretty bumpy and unlevel sleep. This is one of the few reservable campgrounds in the park so it's easily overlooked for tenters.

Rate reflects senior discount. This is a nice base from which to explore the central part of Yellowstone National Park. The sites are level and reasonably spaced. We had plenty of room for our small truck camper, but big rigs had trouble with some of the sites, even pull-throughs. I watched one guy spend three hours getting his fifth wheel parked the way he wanted it. The restrooms are modern and clean. Camp hosts are very helpful. To shower, you have to go over to the RV park at Fishing Bridge. Lots of showers there and they are clean. The national park is the big attraction, of course, and it's magnificent. It's so large that, as others have said, we would stay in several different campgrounds if we came again. We found this campground to be a bit noisy. The biggest negative: One day while we were out exploring in the camper, someone took the steps and doormat we had left behind at the campsite. Fortunately, we took our camp chairs with us. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Rate reflects senior NP pass. Sites are Very tight for RV. 30 foot RV really didn't fit and had to back in to site from it's exit point. I could not make the 'turn' of the pull-through. Site was very unlevel as well. Really set up more for tents. I agree with previous post. Should camp at each 'area' of this vast place and see the sites in that 'area' then move to another campsite. Get reservations when possible then cross your fingers on first-come sites. Of course what you are here for is the scenery -- Priceless ! We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here 4 nights in a tent. It goes without saying that it is in a beautiful location. It's on the west side of the park near the lake and the boat launch. There is a small store right across the street that opens at 9 AM where you can pick up a few food items or coffee and other things. Pay showers ($3.50 plus tax) are available at Fishing Bridge RV Campground 4 miles up the road. There is a larger general store with groceries and cafeteria style dining there that opens at 7:30 AM. The downsides: no hot water or heat in the bathroom. I don't quite understand why the full hookup park has showers and hot water but where they allow tents there isn't even hot water. In fact, the woman's bathroom faucets don't even stay on without holding them on. My husband said the man's bathroom did stay on. We were there early in the season and it got down to 28 degrees at night. Maybe during the height of the season this doesn't make much difference. As another reviewer stated I would not stay the entire trip in one campground again. It's hard to make a person understand how big this park is and it takes a lot of time to travel from sight to sight. It makes more sense to move from camp to camp and avoid backtracking a few hours drive to get back to your home site. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent.

Price reflects senior discount. We had a double back in site on the G loop. One site was level and the other was not. The sites are pretty close together but it was quiet in the evening. They were preparing to shut down for the winter, so there were fewer campers each night. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Good location in the park. Friendly staff. Pay showers 4 miles away is the only real negative. Next time we would not stay here for 5 nights. We would move around the park because it is huge and takes a long time to get from point to point. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This would be a nice cg if there were level sites in the forest area. The meadow area looked more promising but is so close to the camp road. Our 30' pull through site was very narrow and totally sloped. Second time that's happened in Bridge Bay, so won't be back. Also, campers left fires unattended, host didn't care.

Recommend that you call Xanterra to make a reservation instead of using their website. We needed a site to hold our fiver and tow vehicle and it required a double site so we could park the truck next to the camper. Not many double sites available. Location is great for visiting the park areas around the west side of the Lake and Gull Point for fishing. A bison herd went through our site and were present during our 4 day stay. The sites in the field area are more level than in the circles. Our site was not level and required that we put the front end almost on the ground, but we had lots of trees and space.

What a great campground this is! My site was high on a hill overlooking the bay. The full moon rose right over the spot and the photos I got were amazing! You can easily walk to the amphitheater and there are pathways down to the beach, which easily takes you to the store and the marina. The funny part was that when I arrived at my site there was a bison sleeping there! I slammed my door a couple of times that didn't work so then I turned on my generator. He left immediately! Of course I could always have asked for help from the campground folks, but this was an easy fix. If you are out in the open without lots of trees around, really secure your screen room or tent because the wind does blow here. That kept me cool and comfortable except in the heat of the day, but I was always off exploring so I didn't care. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

For as large as this campground is, it was really quiet. We had a pull-through on Loop B and when we got there we expected it to be noisy because there were so many other campers in the park. But it was a really peaceful, convenient spot to stay for the night and enjoy the park. We would stay here again. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice, large reservable campground. The front 4 loops are open grass area and the back loops are within a forested area, some overlooking the lake. A few years ago we stayed in the grass area. In the morning a buffalo wandered through pausing outside the ladies bathroom, causing confusion to those coming out (humor to those outside). This time had a site in the forested part. Plenty of chipmunks, squirrels, and birds. More privacy and "park feeling" in the woods part. Rate was with Golden Access discount.

Large campground in the heart of Yellowstone National Park. Pull-through sites available, but on one way loops that leave the door on the wrong side. Needed to use blocks to level the coach. Restrooms were very clean. Staff is very friendly. One lane dump station is available. We camped at Bridge Bay Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
