I put a lot of faith in reviews.... Hearing from folks that have actually experienced the CG is much more important to me that having some CG’s “blow smoke at me”

It does, indeed, get poor reviews for the $80/night. http://www.campgroundreviews.com/reg...lo-valley-3327

If you'd try to tour Yellowstone it's a far distance. You probably wouldn't want to do it more than one day.

If you need hookups then at least try for Colter Bay RV in the park itself or Headwaters RV - which doesn't get good reviews either but at least you're a lot closer.

Personally, we prefer Gros Ventre campground in Grand Teton NP. No reservations accepted but we've always gotten a site with our 40' MH. There's also Colter Bay campground, next to the RV park. Both are a LOT cheaper than the others.

We are touring Yellowstone from the KOA outside western entrance. Gros Ventre and Colter Bay campgrounds are appealing but not being able to book ahead of time and lack of hookups give me pause. I’ve got reservations at Teton Valley resort in Victor, Idaho. If I don’t show I lose first nights deposit. My current plan is to leave West Yellowstone at daybreak, go straight to Gros Ventre and try for an electric site, and if I can snag one, burn my Idaho reservation. If not, I’ll just head on over to Victor via Teton Pass. Colter Bay is appealing in that they at least have showers nearby.
