RV Campgrounds at Yellowstone

RV Campgrounds at Yellowstone
Yellowstone National Park is arguably the premier park of its kind in the United States. Encompassing a sprawling wilderness across the states of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone hosts throngs of people from around the world who come to pursue outdoor sports and see the abundant wildlife. Given the size and scale of Yellowstone, the best way to see it for those who don't want to rough it in a tent is to bring an RV to one of the many campgrounds in the park that accommodate them.
 

Fishing Bridge RV Park

Fishing Bridge is the main RV campground within Yellowstone National Park. The campground is sited across the road from Yellowstone Lake on the northern shore. It has spaces for 40-foot RVs and is meant for hard-sided vehicles only. Those with pop-up campers should look elsewhere. There are full hookups, pay showers, coin laundry, a dump station and a general store. While other campgrounds in the park accept RVs, this is the one best-equipped for them. It is open from late May to mid-September.
