There are at least 6 loops in this park. A-D are paved and looked nice. We were in E. The road to get to our back-in site was very narrow and full of potholes filled with muddy water. The road is only as wide as a tow vehicle and trailer, and is bordered on one side by forest. If someone has/is backing in and must unhook their tow vehicle, you will need to wait because you cannot pass. The sites are short. They say they will take 40-foot rigs, but that is pushing it. We were able to park our truck on the side, but right into a pine tree, so it was hard to open the back door. The site for the RV is narrow. When I got up in the morning, our neighbor behind us was practically in our living room. Supposedly, there are Grizzly Bears around, but we only saw a few buffalo and some trout swimming upstream at LaHardy Rapids! There is an auto/RV repair place (not surprised with all the potholes), a General Store, and a Visitor's Center, where one of the Ranger's told me most people do not like this park. It is very expensive for what you get. When leaving, you have to deposit your check-in slip, which means getting out of the tow vehicle or motor home to reach the drop box. We won't stay here again. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tight spaces and very close to your neighbor, but we didn't go to spend a bunch of time at the RV! Dusty when dry and huge puddles when rainy! We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Location, location, location. We chose this park for the full hookup in the central area of Yellowstone. We were gone from the campsite most of the time but the sites are a LOT closer than what I prefer. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

I feel bad for our NPS. They are being inundated for this 100th anniversary year and our administration has not pre-planned nor given funding to prepare our parks for the amazing crowds coming from around the world to see our natural wonders.

This park needs TLC and help. We had a stay of 3 weeks planned, (we full time), and were given a back of the park site. It was horrid. dusty, dirt, with pitted, gullied dirt road access. We were fortunate to relocate after two nights to the front. Don't stay here if you cannot get into sections A, B, C or D. Other than that: it is the only option for rigs to stay within the park with full hookups. That makes inconvenience worth it.

Watch out for Grizzlies! They occasionally wander through the camp. Laundry good. Wifi and cell horrible, (C'mon US Gov't, you created the internet. Can't you make it better at your Nat'l Parks?)

Food shopping within park marginal at best. Plan ahead. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

West Yellowstone town has decent grocery if you are over that way and need to replenish. Heard that Gardiner at north entrance has similar. Get out early to beat crowds and better chance of seeing wildlife. Expect traffic jams from wildlife sightings. Folks just stop in the middle of the road, and bison feel an entitlement to walk down roads and over bridges. That is part of the reason you are here, right?

We stay here for one thing: location, location, location. Lots of potholes and dust. Roads through sites are narrow. Don't be surprised when you have to stop and wait for someone to pull out or back in. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Despite all the bad reviews I read about this place, I resolved to keep an open mind about it. They were right. This campground, the only one in all of Yellowstone NP with hook-ups: was crowded, dusty, muddy, tight, uneven, unsightly and replete with pot-holes. The roads are so narrow with big trees lining them that you have to be careful to avoid bashing your fender when backing in your rig. The sewer connection is poorly located and elevated such that you cannot achieve a decent gravity fall from your dump valve. I found it useless and had to use the dump station when we left. For being a US government park, it was embarrassing. We were here a week and very thankfully stayed away most of the days touring the park. This over-priced facility (relative to what you get) in a national park will not recognize your senior pass. I would rather have dry-camped in one of the parks' other campgrounds. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

For a State Park, at least it had full hookups. No cable, and unable to connect our satellite. Terrible phone reception. Sites were very close together and we barely got our tow car on the site. No picnic tables. Lots of warnings for food storage due to bears. Easy to get around Yellowstone. One night was enough for us. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Campsite was concrete slab however roads are dirt. Dust billows when anyone drive past the site. No picnic table or fire ring. Campsite roads are very rough, recommend you keep your windows closed to keep out the dust. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

If you need hookups, this RV facility is ideal for visiting Yellowstone. We stayed for a week and were happy to come back to the rig after a fun, tiring day of enjoying the varied sights in the huge park. As has been said, the RV sites are packed together and share hookups with little space for outdoor activities: no picnic tables or fire pits. Setting up upon arrival and hooking up for departure often temporarily blocks the access road to other sites. The folks that work in the registration office and greet new arrivals are friendly and helpful. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Squeezed in tight, but hey, you are in the middle of Yellowstone. No picnic tables or fire rings, if there were your neighbor would burn your rig. Tough finding room for your tow or truck. Green belt next to each row of campsites. All back-ins. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night, and moved just outside the park 3 additional nights. I would not recommend this facility. The Fishing Bridge RV Park is over rated, crowded, just not worth the hassle. We came in mid day then left early the next morning. Never will I stay here again.

Though it is located conveniently near the center of Yellowstone, it is not the camping experience we thought it would be. The sites are so small that I could barely get my 25' trailer and pickup truck parked. My truck was less than 2' from the neighbors trailer while less than a 1' from my trailer. If I would have deployed my awning it would have encroached on the neighbor on the other side. There is no piece and quiet because of the tightly packed sites and the number of people there. The sewer hookup was so high I could not drain my tanks and had to use the dump station at the entrance. There was no cell phone, no antenna TV reception, and no internet access. When looking at the general cleanliness of the landscape withing the RV park, there were small pieces of paper, plastic, drink containers, etc lying everywhere. I was disappointed to say the least!! Stay somewhere else, unless you like packed in crowded conditions. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here because it was convenient to the trails and sites we wanted to visit. Other than convenience, there is no value to staying here. The sites are incredibly cramped. Management is working to make some basic improvements to the sites in terms of protecting the connections, but the biggest problem is that there are too many sites crammed into too small space. Our slide outs were inches from our neighbors windows. There is no picnic table - probably because there would be no way to squeeze anything else into a site. I sincerely hope that the NPS will require a redesign of this RV camp in the near future. It is convenient to many park trails and attractions. Yellowstone is too well maintained to tolerate such a poorly designed and maintained campground. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

I had read how cramped, but you don't get a feel for how bad it really is until you are worried about other people hitting your RV as they try to park. It is in the park, but this park is huge and you still do a lot of driving. The sites are back-in unless you do like one of our neighbors and pull through the site behind them to get into theirs because they couldn't get backed in...did provide a level of entertainment. Senior Pass discount is not honored. We would find another place to stay should we return to Yellowstone. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed on Memorial Day weekend.

This is a special campground because it is in the heart of Yellowstone, close to the center of the park. It is where you can hook up large or small RVs to new 50 amp power, water and sewer. No tents are allowed. The nearest other choices for "full hook ups" are in the small towns outside the park entrances. Commuting to the best parts of Yellowstone can require a couple hours a day. It is better to be in Yellowstone to see Yellowstone.

The Fishing Bridge campground is huge. Sites are compact. There is only just enough space for parking and hookups for modern RVs. There is not room for amenities like picnic tables. The goal is to sleep here and spend your time in the park. It is in a forest, so there are no scenic views other than the trees themselves. There is no grass, it is all gravel and pavement.

Fishing Bridge is not camping beauty, it is camping efficiency in the heart of one of the best scenic wonders of the world. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

The nearby Fishing Bridge complex of store, gas station and interpretive center are very good. Gas seemed to be only about 15 cents a gallon higher than outside the park. Grocery selection in the store was limited but good.
