We have stayed in a few of the campgrounds outside the park, and a few within the park. As far as I'm concerned, you get the most out of the experience if you stay inside the park. It has been quite a few years since we have been there so I hesitate to say much about them as things could have changed drastically by now. Here is a site where you might get some insight on it. What ever you decide, take your time and enjoy it, there is to much to see to hurry thru.

We stayed at fishing bridge several years ago and I believe that our reasoning still applies. This campground is near the center of the park. We divided the park into quadrants and had a central base to explore each section 1 day at a time

Yellowstone Edge Rv Park, Emigrant mt. is outside the north entrance to Yellowstone. This is an outstanding, clean park right on the yellowstone river. One of the nicest rv parks we have stayed at in all our travels. It is about a 1/2 hour drive to the north entrance, well worth the trip.

We stayed at the Flagg Ranch (Moran) in July 2011. Theyhave full hookups, but only 20 amp service which was no problem,. They do have bath houses and laundry facilities a general store and a restaurant. The higher sites are better becausewater collects in some of the lower sites.This location is very convient for touring the Tetons, Rockfeller Preserve, and lower loop of the Yellowstone. The Upper loop of the Yellowstone is along days drive. We do plan on a return trip and will probably staythere again. Hope this information is helpful.

Summer of 2010 we stayed at Colter Bay campgrounds in the Tetons. A little $$$ but in the park and Very Nice. Fishing Bridge was getting renovated so they were closed. Plus we wanted all the hook ups. We then went to the Rustic Wagon Campground in West Yellowstone. Campground was very nice and easy drive to all points of interest in the park.

I think Tower Falls cg in the park is a great location,You are close to Lamar valley where most of the wildlife is including wolves & bear & near Hayden Valley,Tower Falls gift shop is right there & also have food along with Roosevelt Lodge,No hookups,If you are under 30' there are some sites you will fit in, If you do go there let me know & i can keep an eye out for a site for you i will be there for the summer. I believe it's still $12 a nightEdited by: campsurveyor

</span>We stayed at Yellowstone Holiday on Hebgen Lake this summer. 1/2 hour west of the west entrance. It is a beautiful spot on the lake with mountians behind you. $$$ compared to in the park. Fullhookups with 50 amp. You go through the town of West Yellowstone on your way to the park. Resonable groceries and all the trinkets you could possible need. We have a senior pass so mulitible trips to the park wasn't a problem. Made 4 days to the park to see it all and caught a big old lake trout one evening from the camper yard.

Old Farmer,
Whereabouts in WI are you? I am now retired and getting ready to hit the road and it seems as though I might be able to glean quite a bit from you. If you happen to be around before you hit the road and have some time to sit for a cup of coffee I would love to come meet you if you're up for it.

Thanks,
Jim Tator
