Has anyone stayed at the Mammoth Hot Springs campground at Yellowstone in the winter? We're hoping to do that this year (can't afford the lodge prices) and are curious as to if anyone here in the forum has tried it yet or not and what it was like as far as the campground and as far as winter camping. Any information is appreciated. I know they do not have any hookups and it is first come first served but that is all the park service could really tell me other than no generators from about 8 p.m.-8 a.m.

I looked under http://www.rvparkreviews.com and under Yellowstone, WY they list and have ratings for most of the campgrounds there, but unfortunately no one has posted any info on Mammoth. When we go to Yellowstone we always stay at Fishing Bridge, and not in the winter time.

I've looked at it, but not stayed there. It's right on the snaky entrance road on the way into Mammoth from Gardiner. There are no hookups at all but you can run gensets in the hours you mentioned. There were larger rigs in there so it could be a viable parking area.

We stayed at Yellowstone RV Park last fall and would go there again this fall if the trip materializes for us. It's 5 miles up the road and is located right alonmgside the Yellowstone River in Gardiner. It had full hookups available but you'd have to call them to see if they are open in winter.

I've stayed at Fishing Bridge but that's pretty tight spot. It wasn't the worst in our 33' gasser although having slides on opposing sides made it tight. It was nearly impossible with a 40' coach though and the trees were really squeezing us. I wouldn't do it again. If your RV is smaller it might work for you but it won't be open in winter because the only road open in the park to vehicular traffic is Mammoth to Cooke City. Then again, you could probably cut a deal to boondock in a motel parking lot in Cooke City also. Being close to the wolf packs in Lamar Valley when they're active in winter would be very attractive to me.
