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

First - for a 'be bear aware' area they provide an awfully small bear proof box, and you need to share it with the next site. Second - there are no showers in the Campground only 4 miles away and it cost 3.9$ per person. For a party of 5 that cost almost as much as the accommodation! And last... More

It gave us peace of mind to be able to reserve a campsite and the web to do so was really easy. Great price! Check-in was easy and workers helpful. The sites vary, some are open with lake view, others more hilly with shade and privacy. The bathrooms are nice though no hot water or showers. Great location. We stayed... More

This campground works mostly because it's within the park. There are a LOT of people crammed in, but the lower levels (A - D) are the worst; We were lucky in "H" level but still a ton of people around

We stayed in Bridge Bay Campground 4 nights in the Tent only loop. It was a good stay. Got cold a few nights, but beautiful in the day. We didn't see any wildlife in the campground and had no problem with bears. There was no privacy, but we were in Yellowstone and that is what mattered. We spent most of... More

Had a nice large area for our campsite. Had a bathroom with running water, electricity and flush toilets. Had a sink for washing dishes. The general store was great. Had a lot of stuff like fuel for our camp stove, macaroni, ground beef, eggs, bacon, bread, cereal, milk, beer, snacks, canned goods. This made camping a whole lot more fun.... More

Camping here was awkward - many of the campsites are basically in a large field with no trees and therefore no privacy. Campsites are packed close like sardines. No showers available, but restrooms are nice and clean. Staff is knowledgable and friendly. This was a fine place to camp, but if I had a choice I wouldn't stay here again... More
