Fishing Bridge reservations started in May thru Xanterra and I doubt you will get one. West Yellowstone KOA is taking them now. Grizzly Bear in West Yellowstone starts taking reservation on Oct.1.

We've spent a fair amount of visiting Yellowstone, but mostly May/Sept/Oct. We usually stay at Rocky Mountain RV Park in Gardiner for access to the northern part of the Park, especially for wildlife in the Lamar Valley. And we like Grizzly RV in West Yellowstone for visiting the southern half of the park. Fishing Bridge is more central, but it is a HUGE park and exploring from any base means a lot of driving. The last couple of years we've been amazed at the crowds in those shoulder months. June to August will likely be very crowed, and traffic and parking will be an issue.

Besides Yellowstone, we like Devil's Tower, the Tetons and Cody for the Buffalo Bill Center of the West museums. We always try to visit the Black hills in South Dakota while in that area.

"amazed" - meaning crowded or not crowded?

Devil's Tower is worth a stop. There is a KOA at the entrance that has hook up sites that have a view of the tower. In the park is a dry campground (I don't know if you would fit) and great nighttime views.

Planning on a trip to Wyoming and would like your thoughts on places to see and stay. Will be there a month so will we able to see several points of interest in the state. Of course Yellowstone National Park is a definite stop we will not stay in the park however - our rig is too big - any suggestions for RV parks within driving distance of YStone? I would appreciate any information you could share on your trips to the state of Wyoming and the parks you stayed in. We are not looking for resorts - but RV Parks. Our rig is 42 ft. Also restaurants and other spots to visit that you found interesting. Thanks for your suggestions. Also we enjoying taking our vehicle and doing driving and tours.


We stayed at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone...we were in a motorhome...nice sites. It's a neat little town, lots of shops and places to eat. It's just a short drive to the park entrance and has a Ranger Station on the way where you can ask questions and get maps of the park, which has upper and lower loop drives. We took a day for each drive (the lower has Old Faithful) Just before the Ranger Station is the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, where you can see bears and wolves up close.

That's what I figured. I'll be there mid-October myself.

Make sure you drive through the Wind River canyon south of Thermopolis. There is a state park in the canyon right along the river. Beautiful place to camp.

At the Buffalo Bill Museum, west of Cody, there is a movie of how the dam was built. Very much worth watching. Betsy.
