Like others have said, centrally located in the park. That's the ONLY thing going for it. Could not pull in Verizon signal, not even with cellular booster. Pavement in terrible shape. Weeds galore, basically unkempt. The tightest and most cramped sites I've found anywhere. I will drive many miles to avoid this campground in the future. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Extremely small sites but you are only there to sleep so not that important. Nice people at the office, very accommodating. We would stay here again. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Interior roads need some help but this park is about Location

Stayed 5 nights Sep 2014 - had a 40 Ft motor home site - Plenty of room , had enough room to put the awning out and car parked nicely on the other side.

Has excellent Verizon cell and data coverage all 5 days - heard they had new towers in the park. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Beware, if you have a low RV, you may not be able to use the sewer connections. They are all 12~15" above the pavement level. We could not use ours. The posted rates do not mention the taxes. Like most everything else in the park that manages money, it is run by Xanterra. They were very accommodating as we arrived a day before we had planned and also left a day earlier. Yes, the sites tight and all but a few are back in. Some TT people had a difficult time but that may have been as much an owner issue. Yes, the pavement of the Fishing Bridge (no fishing allowed there) is the worst pavement in the park. If you don't have a toad, be aware that many of the scenic drives restrict "large vehicles". While I had useable Verizon phone coverage, data coverage was between weak to non-existent. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

No discounts apply since the campground is operated by concessionaire. Very high priced for a National Park campground. The interior road is narrow and rough; the asphalt is crumbling. It is a challenge to back into any site. The sites are a tight fit. The water, sewer and electric worked fine. Weak service area for Verizon cell phone and MiFi. The Pros: it is the only campground within Yellowstone that provides hookups. May consider staying outside of the park next time.

Services provided as promised. Sites very tight for space. We fit, but just. No Awning room. It was the only full hook up in busy Yellowstone. Prices high, but only option. Only real complaint was the site space. It was as warned it would be. We would return if in Yellowstone. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We were so excited to get 6 night at fishing bridge but our bubble burst pretty quickly. It rained for three solid days and the entire campground was under water. Seriously, we couldn't even get to our car. We thought ok we'll wait it out, but with no Verizon cell service and our hot spot didn't work, after three days, we decided to move over to West Yellowstone and got reservations at Grizzly CG. The last night we were there, the power was out most of the night and the rangers had no idea when it would be turned back on. They said it happens a lot. If you're looking for somewhere to stay near Yellowstone, look at the Grizzly CG in West. We will not be going back to Fishing Bridge!

Very expensive and much deferred maintenance. Vendor can and should do better. Not even a picnic table at our site to place a grill. Very tight sites. However, very nice visitors center (rustic) on the water. For the price of the campsite, it should have included more showers. ($4) each after 2 each day. Gas was outrageous ($4.30/gal for diesel ) cheaper by 20 cents in GTNP. Made reservations a month ahead and all CG in lower loop were full when we came so we were glad for that.

This is the place to be for full hookups and close to most attractions. But the campground doesn't have much to offer. Sites are very tight, no picnic tables, and not very attractive. Roads into the loops are poorly maintained. For the price, I think they could do better. We stayed here 3 nights. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Well, many other reviewers have pretty much said it, but here's my observations. The road in over Fishing Bridge is VERY potholed. The roads within the campground are a little better. The back-in wasn't terrible, but not the easiest either. There are things to watch for like little stumps at the edge of the parking pad. The sites are VERY tight. If the person behind you overhangs (backs in too far) even a little bit, you could have a problem. The parking pad at the site is road, grounds at the site are gravel/dirt and weeds. The staff was friendly and accommodating. In our reservations we noted we were traveling with another family in an RV and they would try to put us together. They put us on opposite sides of the loop and a few off, which meant we would have to either cut through a site (if it's empty) or walk around the loop to get to each other. We went and asked if our friends could move and they quickly set it up - no problem. If you are traveling with others - backing up to each other is the best way to do it. The Yellowstone General Store and visitor center is in walking distance, which was nice for evening walks with our dogs. The grocery is not very well stocked, in that it has a poor selection. With Verizon we did have service, but the data signal was weak. About the only thing this campground has going for it (in my opinion) is location. It's PERFECT for getting to see the whole park. We pretty much covered it in a week. This park could really use some updating, but I would grudgingly stay here again - mainly because it's so convenient.

The only FHU facility in the park, so that is a plus, and worth it even if a bit high in price. Sites are mostly level, but do need a slight adjustment. Park is in the middle of the pine forest. Paved access road and parking pads. Be aware of your length and slides as site dimensions are very tight in length and back up to neighboring rigs and face the forest trees. All sites are back-in. We saw several fifth wheels and trailers unable to maneuver into their spot without a lot of jockeying, and a few had to give up and go around to start all over again. I believe other loops may have had longer sites, but there were a lot of people trying to squish into sites too short for their actual length. Concessionaire run facility, desk staff is brisk but efficient. Site fee includes two showers per night. Recycle bins near office, trash must be handled in bear proof manner.

This RV campground is in a good location. The hookups worked, but use a regulator because the water pressure is quite high. The sites are the smallest I've ever encountered, with no room even for picnic tables. The road pavement is deteriorated, go slow. We only stayed here because the folks we were with wanted full hookups. I'd highly recommend booking early for summer spots.

If you want a full-service hook-up campground in Yellowstone this is it. It is also central to much of Yellowstone and you can get around well (except for the bison jams). It is a bit tight but then it's Yellowstone. The sites are asphalt, the hook-ups are fine, there was room enough for our 35' RV and Jeep and the sites are level. The only fires allowed are in self-contained grills. There is a store with groceries, deli, gift shop and diner-style restaurant, Visitor Center, gas station, repair facility, and lake nearby. We traveled all over Yellowstone from this spot and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Yellowstone. Pricey? You bet but location, location, location. I'd definitely come back.

This is a very large campground that is broken up into loops so it doesn't feel that large. It is located in a wooded area and is a great place to stay in the park if you want full hookups for your RV. The sewer connection does need a rubber donut to work well (it can work without), but these are not sold in the office or the camp store. We have stayed here a couple of times and enjoy the convenience of this location. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice sized campground close to Lake Yellowstone. Had a back-in site that was rather tight for our 40' motor home (our nose was just out of the road, and I do mean 'just'). Had all the hook-ups, which was great, but a little pricey for the extreme compact spaces. Nice basecamp to visit a lot of the Yellowstone sites. Probably would forego the hookups and stay at one of the other campgrounds in the park next time for a little more elbowroom. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
