Wonderful National Park Campground

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.

It’s what you’d expect

Crowded, basic, but had a last minute spot for one. Not far from attractions or the great lodge for WiFi and food.

Close to Marina

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.

Nice Campground

Bridge Bay is a nice campground.  It has all the amenities you could ever want.  Only downside is its fairly busy, however I don’t think there is really anyway around this in Yellowstone.

Forest meets meadow!

We stayed at bridge bay campground for five nights and each day was better than the last. We had some amazing animal encounters. Elk and bison randomly wander through the campground. Lots of chipmunks and birds. Our site backed up to the forest which was really nice. The bear box was a little on the small side. The site had a pick nick table and fire ring with grill plate. The bathrooms weren’t to far away and were kept really clean. Flush toilets a huge plus. Overall the campground was very clean and quiet.

Camp by Beautiful Yellowstone lake

Staff at check-in are friendly and helpful. Amenities include bathrooms, dish washing site, clean water, bear boxes for food items and a personal outdoor grill in each camp site. There is a small store and boat rentals by the bay for those who want to explore the lake. Multiple camp sites for tents, motor homes and camper trailers. Most sites are bordered by a thick wooded area and gives the camper a feel of the true beauty of Yellowstone. Yellowstone lake is nearby with opportunities to kayak, rent a boat or just enjoy the solitude of the pristine alpine lake. This campground has its own personal hiking trail to the natural bridge that is worth the time to explore. I would definitely book this site again the next time I am in Yellowstone.

great surroundings but campground is minimal

love Yellowstone! but this campground is a city to itself. 438 spots and NO SHOWERS! dish washing station was out of order. minus- couldn’t pick exact site on the website and would not do that again. loops a-c are just parking lot camp sites with no privacy or trees.. yuck!! other loops are good. campground gets very busy! plus- wildlife was very cool.

Scenic Campground in National Park

There is a public restroom in each loop. It has cold running water and flush toilets. If you don’t have a hard sided trailer all food and related items must be placed in a provided Bear proof box. Each site has a table and fire pit. The upper loops are shady the lower loops have a few trees scattered about. Wildlife can roam thru at any time. They gave us a site large enough both our trailer and 5th wheel could be right next to each other.

Beautiful views but book early

Flush toilets, pay showers, and well-spaced campsites eith beautiful views - but only if you book your site early!

If you have to

Like all campgrounds in Yellowstone, this campground is well maintained, and well run. I have never enjoyed staying here however. It is very packed, and most of the loops are exposed to everything due to lack of trees, in the shoulder seasons, this isn't too bad, but believe it or not, it does get into the mid 90s in Yellowstone during the summer, and that isn't fun. I've also had close noisy neighbors every time I've stayed here… but, if you've been to Yellowstone, you will know that sometimes you are happy that these extra 100+ sites exist.
