twogypsies pretty well said was I was going to.

On our trip to YS in September 2011 we stayed at Fishing Bridge for a week. Had no problems with the size of the site, location of any water, electric or sewer connection.

Loved having a herd of bison wander through one evening. A bear was spotted elsewhere in the campground.

We did drive over to West Yellowstone in our Jeep one day and it's a pretty good distance from the west Park entrance to anything to really "do" inside YS. Since the place you're staying also rents cars and will bring it to you I highly recommend you do that.

Enjoy YS, it's one of our favorite places to go. Have seen it in 3 seasons but still have to experience Spring and all the baby animals.

We love Yellowstone! We have stayed at fishing bridge, grizzly in West Yellowstone, and Hebgen Lake north of West Yellowstone. We liked them all!

outside my door

sorry I misspoke when I said ll I had to do is walk out the door and the park is there, thats not what meant. After talking to staff from fishing bridge and several parks in west yellowstone, west yellowstone seemed to be closer to drive then fishin bridge. As far as the car rental goes were coming from NYS and are stop before Yellowstone is going to be Sioux falls SD. The closest to rent a car coming in would be cody and drop off in jackson hole. It was easier to move a campsite and drive some to the attractions then to have to deal with driving from cody when we arrive and jackson when we leave.

I thought Yellowstone had a bus route that picked you up at Fishing Bridge? We haven't stayed at Fishing Bridge since the total redo of the CG. When we stayed there in a 30' 5er we had adequate room to park it and the pickup.
The year we did stay there, some dummy was feeding a bear in the CG, the Rangers had to shoot it because it returned after they trapped it and moved it miles away. They have a saying, "A fed bear is a dead bear".

Last season there was the Lynx Coop. bus route. It was $20 a day and did a clockwise loop of the south loop road. They also had connections to other spots, but it certainly isn't like driving yourself. Can't pull off in Hayden Valley and watch a bison herd or a grizzly down by the river. Doesn't go to Artist's Point, Upper Falls, Mammoth Hot Springs, Sheep Eater's Cliffs, etc. It just stops at major tourist areas, missing much of Yellowstone.

There is also the Historic Yellow buses, refurbished 1936 buses that take tours from the various hotels in the park.

Fishing bridge is the only campground in the park with hook-ups. But.. they do not honor the senior pass, so you have to pay full price of $46.00 a night.
