Just received notice that the Fishing Bridge Campground in Yellowstone will not open in 2021. Only camping available inside park will be no hookups.

Very sorry to hear this news. Many RVers can't, or won't, stay anywhere without full hookups.

COVID: Construction projects months behind schedule.
Government construction projects: years behind schedule.
COVID + Government: Add a decade or two

So glad I fought for the 3 weeks to take my big loop trip in 2017. We got 6 nights at fishing bridge for a middle of the trip decompression. Once the closure was announced spots were even more unobtainable, if I hadn't fought for it then it's unlikely I ever would have taken my kids to see it where they'd really remember (they were 7 and a toddler our first trip). It's unfortunate that a lot of families will miss out on the awesome experience that is Yellowstone due to a poorly managed project.

If you have to have full hookups, why not stay in West Yellowstone and drive in? You can still see the park and have your hookups. You just have to plan early, but, you had to do that to get a Fishing Bridge site anyway.

Glad we went in 2017. Fishing Bridge is centrally located and perfect for seeing all of the park. I would hate to be on the outskirts of the park and have to drive in everyday seeing the same thing until I got to where I turned off the different loops. Either way we booked a year in advance.

Distances and time from
Fishing Bridge West Yellowstone
Old Faithful 38 30
Canyon Village 16 32
Tower 35 51
Norris 28 28
Mammouth 49 49

Coming from Fishing Bridge to any of these places you have to drive throw Hayden Valley which has some of the worst wildlife traffic jams in the park. I think we spent almost an hour every time we drove through that area.

I wish there were more folks like that. Gives the rest of us more elbow room

That's what I did. Worked well for me.
