“Not desireable even for the location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Do not plan on doing anything but sleeping in your your camper. No room to eat outside, no fires allowed and no generators after 8pm which means your lights are on inside for extended periods of time.
We intially felt all this was okay because we were in Yellowstone and all we wanted to do is sleep in the camper. Wrong!! The days and driving in Yellow Stone get very long and you do want a place to go back to just to unwind and get out of a vehicle. Standing around in the street isn't that relaxing or enjoyable.
There are some sites that have electric hook ups, we did not have one of those. Aslo keep in mind if you run the batteries down after 8 pm get up early come back around 6:30 to make dinner, the recharge time on the generator is limited and they do patrol to make sure they are off. The staff was very nice and not rude at all about the noise restrictions.

This RV Park was everything we expected and more! True, it's NOT the type of RV Park that you want to spend lots of time in. But it was a great place to wind down at night after a LONG day traveling throughout Yellowstone. On arrival, they have folks that meet you outside--nice touch! The sites are somewhat packed together, but they are large enough to fit your RV and some outdoor sitting area. Most sites have trees; ours did. No hookup problems. The bathrooms are VERY clean. Showers are $3--I can't comment on them I didn't use them. The location is GREAT--nothing like waking up inside the park! Across from the park there is an ampitheatre where that have night bonfires at dusk. Very close to the Fishing Bridge General Store. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

My husband and I recently stayed 4 nights at Fishing Bridge RV park in our 32 foot motor home. Sites are VERY close together, no picnic table, no fire rings. The sites are paved, level and most have full hookups. This is an RV park, do not expect a camping experience. That being said, we spent very little time at the campground, after all we came to yellowstone to see the sights! You really need a car here, we rented 1 from hertz in Cody and dropped it off in Jackson on our way out. Worked out perfectly. We spent our time out in the park all day, the campground served as home base only.

I recently stayed at this park for five nights. All of the previous reviews are absolutely correct when they commented on how cramped this park is. The sites are so close together that they don't even provide picnic tables at the sites. Ironically, a picnic table would have been useless anyway due to the high volume of mosquitos.

Upon our arrival, in a rainstorm, I was immediately turned off by this park when I arrived at my designated camp site only to find some nitwit had taken this spot and he/she was nowhere to be found to remove it. The park personnel had to relocate our party after one of us had already unhitched and was in the process of setting up. Way to go.

The ONLY redeeming quality of this so called "rv park" is the fact that it had full hook-ups, minus cable, of course. Yellowstone NP was nice, but this campground was not.

Room Tip: Pick a different RV park.

Not for large rigs...sites are small..cramped...some full hookups some electric with sewer and hundreds..no millions of mosquitoes. Everyone around us including us were very disappointed. You are so close that two trailers had their bumpers touching...no tables ..nothing but mosquitoes. Suggest that you park outside the park and drive through the park.

We recently stayed at Fishing Bridge RV park in Yellowstone. From previous reviews, we thought that the campsites would be extremely cramped. Even though the sites were on the small side, the ambiance and location more than made up for it. Fishing Bridge is the ideal spot to stay in Yellowstone as it is right in the middle of everything that is worth doing. You can head north to Hayden Valley and the Tower-Roosevelt area or head west towards Old Faithful and the geyser basins. The staff at the office was extremely helpful when we had to wait on a part for our rig to be shipped to us and were willing to work with us so that we would not have to pay for an extra night if we couldn't get our trailer out by check-out time. The showers were very clean as were the other restroom locations throughout the facility. The general store and Visitor's Center were within walking distance (a nice, easy walk) and were definitely worth checking out. We even had a momma grizzly and her cub walk through just 3 sites away from ours! We also got to see a beaver right at the west end of the bridge. We would definitely stay there again!!

Negatives: As you can see from the pictures, it was cramped. We were disappointed that a large rig came in and took several feet of our small area. You just can't go there with the idea of having much space at your rv site. We already knew that there were no tables and chairs so we brought a folding one. No campfires. If you use a BBQ, you have to take it in each night due to bears. It just helps to know this ahead of time.
Positives:
We took day trips to several places. We packed a lunch some and went out to eat for late lunches, too. We often came in at 8:30- 9pm ready to eat dinner. The person that said to have pre-made or quick dinners was right on and good advise. No time to cook most evenings. The place is a ghost town during the day, as most people are using it as a place to land each night. We went to Cody to the Buffalo Bill museum. Well worth if, especially for the guys. Great Indian history and art. Lots to learn. My grand daughter and I went to nearby Wal Mart as the guys looked at the guns.

We loved West Yellowstone, Montana and went to the Imax and the Wolf and Bear Discovery next door. We took 10 and 12 y/o grand kids. I was pleasantly surprised that the Wolf and Bear discovery was a real highlight and not too expensive. They have bears and wolves that would not have survived in the wild (so it didn't feel so hokey!). The bears are like in a zoo and come out at specific times. You can view them well, however. When they are put away, the kids can go out and hide the bear food with the staff. They then leave and the bears come out. They loved "feeding the bears." Also another museum with the famous Snaggle tooth bear was across the street.

The RV sites all seem to have some woods designed across the street from them. It was nice to have water and sewer. We used the generator a little in the evenings to charge batteries and to use the microwave.

The location is so wonderful. I can't imagine being any farther away from things than we were. We rode our bikes over to the store (through a short cut) and around the RV park. It felt safe there. It only cost us $150. for 6 nights. They reduced the fee due to no electricity. It was a deal and we would return. It was a wonderful vacation. The grand children enjoyed doing a journal each day and it was filled with great memories.
I enjoyed seeing the bison and didn't tire of them-even when they stopped traffic. We did some short hikes, like Natural bridge and Pelican Creek Nature trail. At first, I didn't know that Yellowstone lake was located right behind the ranger area (across the street from the store). The rangers have a nice variety of learning activities and I wish that we would have done more. What a great vacation idea!
