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.

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.

Yellowstone National Park is wonderful. We have a 34 foot class A with slide and tow. The RV park is very tight but adequate, given that we spent most of the time away from the campsite. Utilities worked well. Satellite worked. Wifi and cell is practically non-existent in the whole park: somewhat of a blessing. Laundry and showers 100 yards away. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Xanterra manages this campground for the National Park Service and must be interested totally in making money. The campsites are like sardine cans, you are packed on top of each other. My site was so tight, I could barely make it out the front door...realize this was a reserved site, and I gave them the vehicle and trailer dimensions including that we have 3 slide outs. We JUST had room to put the trailer in and barely enough room for the slide outs...can't put out the awning as it is so close to the tree sitting outside our door! Yellowstone National Park has so many things to offer, BUT, camping there is rediculous if you are at the Fishing Bridge RV Park...if you sneeze, your neighbors on both sides can wipe your nose for you! Not good for RVers in my opinion. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

The roads were really bad to the camping loops, lots of potholes and no way to dodge them. Our travel trailer is 35' long and we met with challenges to back in because of small pine trees across the road from the site. It was tight but doable. The sites are cramped together. Seemed like a commercialized park out for the dollars instead of the national park I remembered as a kid (over 50 years ago). Disappointed that there was no picnic table or fire ring. I'm sure we just missed that info on the website. Also, we could not put our awning out and the pine tree limbs were right against our back door. We could open it but not all the way. Once the slides were out it was difficult to walk around the trailer. Thinking it is a good thing there is a lot to see so you are not in the campground much and maybe that is the thinking behind the crowded spaces. The showers were at the front entrance, a long way from our site, not in walking distance. We will not stay at this campground again. Think we will stay at another park instead. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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?

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.
