Bridge Bay Campground (elevation 7,800 ft.) is located near Yellowstone Lake, one of the largest, high-elevation, fresh-water lakes in North America. Campers at Bridge Bay will enjoy spectacular views of the lake and the Absaroka Range rising above the lake's eastern shore.
ADA Access: Three accessible campsites. Accessible restrooms are located in Loop A of campground and in the picnic area along the entrance road to Bridge Bay Marina.
Drove in from east to west on a Friday late afternoon and the sign at the East Gateway said all park campgrounds were full. As I know to do, we stoped to check and see if there were any cancellations… and voila there was a spot waiting for us!
Great place to stay in yellowstone had tons of fun
Camping in crowds isn't my deal so it gets 4 stars. However, it is a well executed national park Campground. Its clean and well kept the restrooms are clean and warm. Water and food storage is readily available. And the big bonus is the random critter visitors you may find in your Camp when you wake up. We had a bison bedded down about 5 ft from our truck/tent our 2nd night in the camp. He hung out with us until we got all packed up then he wandered through the other sites. Had to take a break from breakfast prep when he decided to scratch his face on the campsite marker and release himself next to our table lol. Great time. We stayed in June and there was daily rain and a couple nice thunderstorms. Nearly all sites were taken, secure a reservation 4 months in advance or more.
Campground was great but didn’t expect 4” of heavy snow in June
We unfortunately did not enjoy our stay here. With all the nearby beauties of Yellowstone, we were hoping for a more wooded area. However we were in loop D, which was just an open area with very crowded campsites everywhere. We were very close to neighbors, which made it a noisy night.
none of the sites were even, most downhill. There are barely and trees and the loops are very small. Only upside was they had firewood for purchase and the bathrooms were clean.
This campground is one of the closest to the east entrance. It is fairly close to a restaurant and services in the park. We bought another battery at the park service area when our battery went dead due to cold temperatures ( using the furnace). The campground is one big wide open space with few trees between sites. We did have an amazing siting of a fox nearby.
This campground is centrally located in Yellowstone National Park. It has quite a few loops. We stayed at sites in loop C and loop G. Loop C was very open with some of the campsites being close together. Loop G was wooded with many campsites being further apart. The restrooms were clean but there were no showers. Some of the campsites are not level so be sure to ask if you need a level site. Be upfront and honest when reserving a site about the length of your RV/vehicle. - some of the sites are quite short.
Great place to stay to see Yellowstone. Reservations are needed in the summer and a good idea anytime.
Crowded, basic, but had a last minute spot for one. Not far from attractions or the great lodge for WiFi and food.
There are open sites with few trees or shadier options in the wooded upper loops of the campground. The location is within sight of the western shoreline of Yellowstone Lake. It great for people who want to be near the Marina but I enjoy Grant campground and village more. The sites are a good size and you can reserve them ahead of time.
