Thank -you so much. I will definitely get after booking some campgrounds!
This website has some very good information about rv's in Yellowstone Park and the Beartooth Pass.
I am lucky to live very close to Yellowstone Park so get to go over Beartooth Pass multiple times each year. I do see rv's going over the pass. I try really hard not to get behind one because they end up having to go very slow due to the steep grade....be prepared to use a lot of gas.
A FYI....the only campgrounds by Cooke City/Silver Gate are national forest service campgrounds without hookups. The Top of the World Store between Beartooth Pass and Cooke City has sewer and water hookups but no electrical hookups as they use an alternative power system for their entire complex.
Cody has full-service campgrounds and is a great place to stay one or two nights before entering Yellowstone Park (fantastic museum and nightly rodeo) but it does not make a good base for exploring Yellowstone Park. If you plan on spending time in Yellowstone and need full hookups make reservations for Fishing Bridge RV Campground. The gateway towns of West Yellowstone and Gardiner are the best options if you do not or can't get reservations for Fishing Bridge. If you can dry-dock there are other campgrounds inside Yellowstone that will work. Bridge Bay, Canyon, Grant, and Madison take reservations. You can make reservations through Xanterra at this website. If you want to be at different campgrounds it would be easier to call them instead of trying to do it through the website. The reservations number is on the website.
Thank-you so much for all the great information, Deb!
