The RV sites themselves are not very appealing, but you are here to see Yellowstone aren't you? I had to park our truck across the front of our site, but this was not inconvenient. It was a bit tough backing In due to adjacent trees. Fortunately, the parallel loops in the cg are each separated by wide stands of tall trees which greatly improve the overall feel of the cg. There were also plenty of staff on hand and I felt the cg was well run. The laundry room was satisfactory, but busy at times. The nearby Fishing Bridge General store had a basic inventory of fresh food, snacks and drinks, lots of gifts and clothing, and a diner. One way traffic to/from Fishing Bridge CG due to major road and building construction was a pain, but I'm sure it will be worth it when they are done. I would stay here again to visit Yellowstone partly because other RV camping options are are too far away. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Go see Yellowstone!! Have dinner at the Lake Hotel dining room, but make reservations well before your stay. The bison filet, and the elk chops, were great by the way. I found the free app, "NPS Yellowstone National Park", to be very handy for advance planning, and used it often during our 9 day stay.

Sites are level and fairly close. This is the only other full hookup campground within 50 miles so you pay for it, but then again you are in Yellowstone. If you don't get a 40' site you may have a hard time getting a larger rig into the 35' sites, we were 36' and had just enough room for the motorhome. Yes, the sites are close, some shade, dusty, no cell service, no TV signal and no WiFi, but if you get out and enjoy Yellowstone you will not miss those things. Our services worked great but make sure you have a water regulator cause the pressure can be high at times. No fire rings or picnic tables here, no room for them. The showers, restrooms and laundry facilities are spotless despite the large number of campers using them, my hats off to the employees on doing such a great job. This campground is closed for 2019 due to some renovations for larger rigs and more restrooms and laundry facilities, and a larger check-in area. We would stay here again. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

No discounts offered. Site was back-in; 50 amp; FHU; gravel site with no picnic table. The sites are small and very close together. The road and hookups in the B loop were recently replaced, but the entry road and roads in other loops were in terrible condition. We had very weak Verizon internet reception. We had good DishTV satellite reception. Since it is the only FHU campground in Yellowstone, we would stay here again. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Fishing Bridge was our home base for a week in Yellowstone National Park. We had a wonderful time. The people who worked at the RV Park were nice and friendly which is amazing considering the volume of people who pass through. We used the showers and laundry facilities and were pleased.

Tow vehicles have to be disconnected. Each site gets 2 showers per night and you have to pay for additional showers at $5 a piece. Showers did not have time limits. Overall, it was a great place to stay while we explored the whole park. Would stay there again. The Park Rangers were amazing. One made sure we got back to our site safely when we got caught out on our bikes in a thunder storm.

This RV park will be closed during the 2019 season so the relevance of this review may be questionable. This is the only full service RV campground in Yellowstone. Basically there are 2 sections: loops A-D have paved roads with gravel sites and loops E-G have dirt roads with paved sites. If you ever wondered what driving on the surface of the moon might be like, drive through loops E to G. Sites are VERY close together such that you likely will want to keep your shades drawn lest you be on display for your neighbors on either side. Given how close the sites are, that fires are not permitted is a good thing. Also, there are no picnic tables, all you get is a full service site. Showers (2/day/unit) and laundry ($2.75 for a 30 minute wash, $2/30 minute dry) are located in the registration building. Full recycling is available. Across from the Visitor Centre are a gas station that sells diesel, propane by the pound, an RV and auto repair centre, and general store. The store sells mostly souvenirs but there is a grocery section that has a limited supply of produce, frozen meats, dairy & bakery products, packaged foods, wine, beer, and liquor. Tuesday is the delivery day for new groceries. The grocery selection at Fishing Bridge is not as large as at Canyon Village or Old Faithful, but larger than at Bridge Bay. WiFi is not available at Fishing Bridge but is available at Lake Lodge (about 3 miles away), Canyon Lodge, Grant Village, Mammoth Hot Springs, and Old Faithful for a fee ($5/hr, $12/24 hr, $25/72 hr). We drove through a few of the other campgrounds (Bridge Bay, Grant Village, Canyon Village) all of which are unserviced but have fire rings, picnic tables and offer better spacing than at Fishing Bridge. While some sites in these campgrounds can accommodate larger rigs, generally they are better suited for smaller rigs. If you can fit and are able to boondock, these campgrounds offer more of a true camping experience than at Fishing Bridge. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have mentioned--if you use this campground, you could likely damage your rig due to the roads. They have been left, and from the information we could obtain, they will not even grade them because the park will be updated next year. It is a teeth jarring experience to drive past the first four loops. Because of the size of the spaces, it is difficult to maneuver your rig to make the hook-ups accessible. It is the only campground in Yellowstone with hook-ups, and the only one that does not give any type of discount for a Golden Age pass. Overpriced for what you get, but no other choices available. Convient to park attractions; but to get to any of them, you have to drive the dreaded road into and out of the park every time. It is difficult to understand the lack of maintenance. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

If you want a campsite in Yellowstone with full hookups, this is the only option available. With only one exception, it's a good place to stay. However, that exception is the very poor roads. If you go there, ask for a site in Loops A, B, C, or D because they have hard surfaced roads. The other loops (E, F, and G) have dirt roads that are full of potholes and are difficult to drive on. All sites are back-i and are very tight if you have a large unit. However, the staff are friendly and helpful. The campground is close to available services. All in all, being located in the park is worth the effort to stay in this campground. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

We had adequate space between the RV's and our main view was of the trees all around. The staff were very friendly but it's a busy place as they are the only place in the park that can accommodate big rigs. The laundry was busy the two times I tried to use the facility. But, the park is close to Hayden valley and we enjoyed exploring the area from here. We also stayed north of the park as well as in the southern area so we could use each as a base from which to see that portion of the park. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

The only positive things about this campground are the central location, and the full hook ups. The price is expensive. The shower house is very far from 90% of the campsites. I guess this discourages use. Really, we would have needed to drive there, then who knows if there would have been a shower available. The roads are dirt with enormous pot holes. The sites are so close together you have to keep your shades down for any privacy. You have to park your vehicle next to your trailer to fit both into the site. Its like camping in a dirt parking lot. Just horrible. Luckily you aren't at Yellowstone for the camping experience, but for touring the park. I'd never stay here again.

So much to see. Spent 6 days driving around. Shopping for food is not very good so buy before. Also packed our lunch as we were not always near anywhere when we were hungry. Went to Bridge Bay lodge for dinner. The Grizzly park at the west enterance if worth the visit. Also a latte coffee is there.

Tightest campground I've been in with our RV. You look out your window and stare into your neighbor's RV. Very difficult to get a 26' foot trailer, pickup truck and two lawn chairs onto the site. Roads are small and one-way, making it very difficult to back in and pull out. One section of the RV park has rutted dirt roads. Would not have wanted to be in that section, especially if it rained. Not an enjoyable place to stay. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Full hookups were excellent. We were able to park 43ft. Motorhome with 3 slides and 2 cars on our end unit site! Loop road was dirt and muddy during rains, but it is what it is. Location and ambiance was perfect. Great to stay inside National Park! No wifi or cell or data signal in campground but we survived lol! Fishing Bridge Hotel and Fishing Bridge Lodge both had nice resraurants. RV service garage at Fishing Bridge too! East entrance from Cody not too steep or curvy.

Would not stay here again. The dirt roads are terrible and nothing is being done to correct them. While it is a great location if you need full hook-ups. Driving the dirt roads to get out of the CG is horrible. We were there almost two weeks and we saw no effort being made to fix the thousand of holes in the dirt roads. Can't understand that with what they charge per night there is not more that can be done to upgrade this CG. Verrry tight sites and just enough room for camper and vehicle. This would be a great CG if they would just complete some much needed upgrades. Also the Sewer connection is ridiculous. The connection is tooo high for campers. Check-in staff were great and should be commended. But CG needs upgrades for prices they charge. Some roads are paved but we were not lucky enough to get on those sites. We paid the same price as the paved but had to contend with rough dirt roads. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

We made our reservations for Yellowstone too late so we didn't have any options. For $54 a night this place was NOT worth it. The sites are short and there is no room to maneuver. Everything needs a good mowing and nearly every timber was rotting and needed replacing. The roads were deplorable. No discounts apply (like senior discounts) like they do in the rest of the park. Stay anywhere else if you can. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Worst campground we have ever been in- and the most expensive. Assumed this would be an excellent national park, to find out they're managed by a private company. RV lots are crammed together, no room to sit, no room to get awning out, no fires allowed. Site was full of mud and debris- hadn't been cleaned in a long time. Tow vehicle must be parked beside your trailer, and there is barely enough room for that! Yellowstone is so amazing, just do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.
