Another vote for Grizzly if you are staying out of the park. Fishing Bridge doesn't give you much space but its right in the heart of the park.

We stayed at the Virginian a few years back. Don't think we would do that again.

X2 on Grizzly RV and Coulter Bay.

We restricted what we could do somewhat to dog friendly activities, and found 3 days was fine for the Tetons, could have spent more than 5 in West Yellowstone.

I think, as was stated, Colter Bay RV Park(hook-ups) does offer a discount (10 bucks sounds right to me)with a Senior/Disabled Pass and Colter Bay Campground(no Hook-ups) givess you 50% off with the same pass. In Yellowstone, Grizzly, is by far the most popular although I would not dismiss Fishing Bridge within the Park even though it is a Parking lot.....you are in the Park itself and if like most visitors to Yellowstone with limited time, your only at your RV a minimum of that time. Either way...have a Great time!!!

Thanks docj. I assume you are talking about Colter Bay Village CG which is a private CG. My Good Sam Travel Guide tells me that it was $57/nite last year. My Senior Pass probably would not help me here. The other Colter Bay CG is a NP CG and does not indicate what, if any, kind of HU's are available.


It is not a private CG; it is in the national park and is run by the parks's concessionaire. That's standard practice in many of the national parks for hotels, restaurants and improved campgrounds. The senior pass does provide a ~$10/night discount.

One of the shortcomings we have found with the Good Sam Travel Guide, along with Woodalls and Trailer Life, is that it provides limited and sometimes incorrect information about federal, state and municipal campgrounds. Maybe it's only a coincidence that those are the kinds of CG's that don't pay for advertising! We find that the reviews of these kinds of CGs are much better at RVParkReviews.com

We are staying at Red Rock RV in Island Park, ID, this summer. They were very friendly when making the reservation. Website says they are 20 minutes from West Entrance. We are staying for a week, and their rates are reasonable. http://www.redrockrvpark.com/

There's Colter Bay Village Campground which is dry camping and right next door is Colter Bay Village RV Park. We stayed at the RV park June/July 2012 and loved it! We stayed 8 nights. Most of the people around us only stayed a couple of days, but we thoroughly enjoyed our campsite and the park. We also stayed at Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone NP. It was essentially a parking lot, but it was inside the park and had full hook-ups. We spent 8 nights in Yellowstone and literally were gone from the campsite all day. When we got back to the RV we had dinner and got ready for bed, so the campground was ok for us. We also spent a night at the West Yellowstone KOA, the sites were small, but they offered many activities, so if you have kids you might consider it.

We spent a week at Red Rock a few years back...you'll be very Happy there. Its a nice "out of the way" campground. We really enjoyed the
horseback ride/rodeo/cowboy BBQ just down the road from Red Rock at a fair price. Have Fun!

We would definitely not recommend Flagg Ranch or the Virginian in Jackson. Flagg has poor electric and the Virginian in a more of a parking lot than Fishing Bridge which at least has some trees. For Yellowstone it's Fishing Bridge and for the Tetons it's Colter Bay RV if you need electric. There are many wonderful options in the parks if you don't need electric. Have fun!
