This campground is located in a beautiful area, but I never saw a view other than other camper's. It's nicely located near the gift shop, museum, and has a public shower. Like so many things at Yellowstone, you drive to the attractions. If you camp with a trailer or motorhome, it does have electricity and this allows you to have... More

I recommend avoiding Loops A-D as it's just a huge pasture with tents and RVs side-by-side. We were assigned a site in loop D but we moved to a beautiful site in loop G. (I also suggest not taking a site at the entrance of any of the loops as these are not at all private.) We had a path... More

This place is just teeming with activity. A zoo at all hours and close to 400 sites. Not a real camping experience, our site didnt even have a tree. We were in the B loop, 113 I believe. Its biggest draw is its proximity to other attractions.

We stayed at Bay Bridge Campground in Yellowstone for three nights. We stayed in loop B which was out in the open. Really windy so couldn't have awning out. Buffalo roaming through campground. We would stay here again.

This campground was absolutely packed! Other than it being very busy and the campsites being very close together, it was a very nice campground. They sell wood and tinder at the entrance if you forgot to bring some and the bathrooms were pretty clean for a campsite. Dogs were not allowed off leash which was a bummer but I understand... More

We stayed for three nights in loop H in a tent. The back loops where we stayed had much more privacy and lots of green trees between sites, unlike the open grass field of the main camping area. We really liked it. The bathroom facility was fine. We drove to shower at Fishing Bridge a couple of miles away (last... More

I was very dissapointed with this campground. The campsite is like a parking lot with some tall grass here and there offering no privacy. People run their generators all day making daytime very noisy. There aren't enough bathrooms to accomodate the campers and the mess sink that you have to use for dishes is in a room not much larger... More

Overall, I would stay at Bridge Bay again. It is centrally located and convenient to Hayden valley where we had some excellent wild life sightings. The bathrooms were very clean and convenient to most camp sites. They really pack everybody in. The sites are very close together, and the loop we were on was not even close to level. We... More

Yellow stone is fantastic no mater which site you stay. Bridge bay is central located and we had buffalo and elk walking around. The pitch we had was not ideal, more like a pull out then a camping pitch. Some pitched where huge. So check where you stay.

First time in Yellowstone was great! But we camped in a tent, and it would have been perfect if not for the NOISE! The campers around us had no regard for the quiet time rules. Make sure to get a loop in the shade and bring lots of blankets the nights are extremely COLD! And bring ear plugs not just... More
