Thanks to previous reviews, we knew what we were getting into, and the campground met those expectations. Loops ABCD have nice smooth paved roads, with uneven gravel sites. Loops EFG have uneven dirt roads with lots of potholes, but nice paved sites. Very strange! We had some trouble backing our 37' motorhome into our site (due to tree proximity) but eventually got it done. Our site was very unlevel so we needed to drive onto some leveling blocks before using our jacks. Our tow car barely fit next to the motorhome on our camping side, leaving no space for anything else. Our view out front was a nice stand of tall pine trees, but of course out the side windows was our neighbor's motorhome just a foot or two away. Given the size of the campground we had plenty of space to walk our dog, which was nice. We had no AT&T signal even with our booster. Verizon had good signal, but was completely unusable except for the most basic of functions (e.g. sending a text e-mail). The campground's location is great, which is obviously why we and others stayed there. We spent a week in West Yellowstone and did most of our sight-seeing from there, then stayed two nights in Fishing Bridge to catch a few of the eastern Yellowstone attractions. This plan worked well for us. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

I have stayed here before and likely will again simply because my rig is too long for the other parks. There are a number of paved loops that are in excellent condition however on each of my 4 trips here I landed on one of the gravel / dirt loops. It seemed as if some sort of oil was laid on on the loop...and then snow and rain turned it into a tar black mud that literally got every where. This impresses me as a typical government contract facility...charge as much as you can and provide the minimum. That said, the staff is superb. I had a series of one-day reservations that they were able to combine to keep me from moving every day...2nd year in a row they managed that miracle. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Sites are very close together and back-in only. They don't allow RV's over 40 feet and I am surprised that RV's over 30 feet fit in some of the spaces. Laundry facilities are clean and easy to use. They do not allow open fires except in your grills. Then they have to be placed either in your RV or tow vehicle. Can't be left outside do to wild animals that may venture into the campsite. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Fishing Bridge gets a bit of a bad rap from reviewers here, but I found it to be pretty nice. Yes, the sites are close together, but our 35-foot fifth wheel with 3 huge slides fit just fine. There is a buffer of trees between each loop, so it doesn't feel like a vast parking lot of RVs. It is similar to many commercial RV parks in terms of space. The location is great for exploring the Canyon area and West Thumb, and not that far from the geyser basins or Lamar Valley. Overall, it is a great option if you want hookups and don't mind paying the fee. The cost is the biggest downside to this park and we opted to stay a week, then move to Mammoth and Madison for the rest of our trip.

This is the only campground in Yellowstone with full hookups. Because of Bears in the area, they permit only hard sided units. There's just enough room for the trailer and tow vehicle. You're crammed in, but since it's Yellowstone, you don't spend a lot of time at your RV. We visited some of the other campgrounds, and determined we did the right thing by staying at Fishing Bridge. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

,fPotholes are terrible. Really need to fix roads. Sites are mostly gravel and close together. Stayed in d-loop. There are paved sites in e, f, and g. No cable. Showers were clean and hot and provide hair dryers. Only showers in main building. Clean laundry but 2.75 a load. Staying here will save you about an hour of driving. Driving around the park is very winding and 20 miles will take about 40 minutes so it is definitely worth it to stay inside the park, both from a gas perspective and time. Ate at Lake Hotel and Old Faithful inn, both were average and were about 60 for 2. There are small grocery stores with very limited and expensive items. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Campsites are very narrow and close together. Roads are narrow so parking is somewhat difficult. We were in A loop. Roads were paved, site gravel and level. No wifi. Since we have Verizon, phone and data were slow but reliable. Best about the campground is location--in the middle of the park and with full hookups. Electric good, water and sewer. We saved so many miles exploring the park by being in this campground, not outside the park. Friendly staff. Very cold--one morning 28 degrees. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We knew what we were getting. We stayed in G loop. We had a paved pretty level site. There was enough room for our 5'er and TV but due to a tree we were not able to put the awning out, not a huge deal. Our site was at the end by the garbage so it was always busy with people and noise. We are also very close to your fellow campers in surrounding sites. Location is great and full hook ups made it easier to deal with. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Fishing Bridge, we will return, two hot showers included in price each day. Great location. Got down to 22 degrees one night, RV staff placed a note on everyone RV letting us know about the cold weather and to let our water drip in the RV through the night, so it would not freeze. Wildlife through Yellowstone, weather just right, not too many cars or visitors on the roads. Had a wonderful vacation. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Many great gift shops through out Yellowstone, Landscapes just out of this world, Wild life through out park and some right on the road and in fact Bison and Big Horn Sheep in the road and stopped traffic.

Grand Tetons also a worth wild trip and to Jackson also a worth wild trip.

I read the negative reviews but found the park very good. The young lady that checked us in was very friendly and efficient. We stayed in Section "A" in a great site. Yes, you're close to your neighbors but we've been as close in other parks. Utilities were above average and there was a clean restroom 25 yards away, no showers. If you shower, you have to go to the main building - we didn't use the showers. Was able to easily set-up satellite. All told, we were very satisfied and would stay again.

We'd read the reviews and knew what to expect. It was tight. We camp in a 27' motorhome, so we don't have that complaint often. While most campgrounds seem to categorize sites by 5 foot increments, Fishing Bridge must be measured to the inch. So glad we got there early in the day, because backing into site was difficult even with extra space on each side of us. You must watch for multiple obstacles when backing in--there are poles marking the site, blocks around the sewer hookups, trees, and of course, other RV's. Probably took us 15 minutes to get it right. Our back bumper was 2-3 feet away from the neighbor's back bumper. We could barely squeeze our tow vehicle onto the lot. You need not worry about extra hose or electrical cord for sure--the hookups are too close for comfort. Disappointed there wasn't a picnic table. Couldn't extend our awning because of proximity to a tree. Showers don't open until 8 am--forget getting an early start to your morning. The laundry closes at 8 pm. Laundry is expensive and dryers are lacking in number because they lack any heat (a rare thing for commercial dryers). It took me 2 1/2 hours to do 6 loads and cost nearly $30 (and some items were still damp). Hubby spent his 2 1/2 hours moving the satellite dish around until he found reception through the pines. The positive is you have full hookups. If any of the other campgrounds had electricity, it would be a blessing. We didn't need A/C during our stay and ran the furnace during the night/early morning. We moved to Canyon Campground a day early just to escape this parking lot. Next trip we will stay at Bay Bridge instead and rough it with the generator. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We were in loop d and the road was deplorable to say the least! Missing the HUGE potholes was impossible! Our tv was professionally installed and was pulled away and left a hole in the wall!!! Thank to the road but in addition clothes fell off the rods! I reported the tv, insurance called but no help with repairs! Beware! 325 sites @ 53.00 and they cannot have decent roads? Give me a break! No tv with antenna. Phone service iffy. Had no patio, no fire ring but we would not have used them. Deplorable roads.Loops A B C had paved roads.

First things first: what a horrible roads in the campground on rows E, F and G. You pay 57 dollars per night and you get 57 deep potholes in return before you reach your site! This is a shame!
That being said, the staff is very friendly.
The back-in sites are almost level, but very short and narrow. The RV of your 'backdoor' neighbor, is almost touching your RV and the sitting area is about 100 sq. feet.
But you have little choice in Yellowstone...
No phone coverage, no Wi-Fi. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Location, location, location. Without the great location this place would have received a 1 star rating. We reserved a 35 foot site for our 33 foot trailer, they gave us a 30 foot site. The roads for loops E, F, and G are so bad you can walk faster on them than you can drive due to the deep and frequent potholes. The sites are extremely tight as you can reach out and touch the neighbor behind you. The sewer connection is 1 foot above the ground. I guess sewage is supposed to run uphill. Use your holding tanks and dump station if you can. Dump when you arrive if you need to. At 7pm I had to wait 15 minutes for a shower. My wife had to wait 30 minutes. No line, however, at 5pm.

The Verizon Wireless system was overloaded most of the time if you were trying to use any data connection. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Our loop F was not paved, though we noticed others were. There were deep holes in the dirt road that were pretty hard to manage and there were so many, we couldn't avoid them each time we drove in and out. Spaces are close and just large enough for TT and vehicle. This Park has a great village with store, small restaurant, gas station, and even RV repair service. Very convenient for all of the east side of Yellowstone. No cell service for AT&T, but we were told Verizon works. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
