We're moving to Virginian RV Park in Jackson Hole on Tuesday. Will give you a report when we get there.

If you are coming from the east side of Yellowstone NP I would suggest the RV park at Yellowstone Valley Inn outside of Cody WY. This is about half way between Cody and Yellowstone NP. The park has full hook-ups and a laundry on site; pads are all gravel. The park is located on 20/14/16 state routes which travel to the east entrance to Yellowstone NP out of Cody WY. I stayed their two years ago in a 5er.

Has anyone had any altitude sickness while in Yellowstone, especially in any of the campgrounds?

Usually it takes 10000 feet and above for extended stay for altitude related illness. You will camp at near 5000 foot.

Two weeks ago right now we were in Yellowstone, and we spent 4 nights at fishing bridge. The sights are all back in, and kind of tight. But my suggestion is to not let people scare you away from there. They accept up to 40 foot campers, and there were plenty of them there when we were, and almost every big RV in the park had a toad. Request an end space, they have a little more room, and you have a better chance of getting one that time of year.

The big advantage of staying at fishing bridge is that it is the only full hookup cg in the park, and for me you cant beat the location. Fishing Bridge is centrally located and a great location for exploring the park.

I would definitely stay there again in the future, I thought the park was pretty well kept, the showers and laundry facility were nice, and there were timber areas and trees all throughout the campground.

My final point is that any place that is outside of the park means you will add considerable time to your commute to get to the sights you will want to see in the park, Fishing bridges best selling point is location, location, location. Hope this helps, I have always loved Yellowstone, and now I would consider myself a fan of the Fishing bridge RV park.

Since i LIVE in west yellowstone i would suggest you dress for any kind of weather!! as for camping you may find bakers hole a great place it is a national forest campground 2 miles out of town on 191 half of the sites are with power and only cost 24.00 per night not the over inflated grizzly park rate. google gallatin national forest then search campgrounds.also look at rainbow point campground. alt. is 6666 ft above drink lots of water and take your time.

Tom...Not sure what you're looking for in the Jackson area, but we arrived at the Virginian RV Park today. It's a very commercial park really close to downtown Jackson. If you're looking for woodsy and quiet, this isn't it. If you want to be in the thick of the tourist area, this is it. The traffic in Jackson is unbelievable. It's very busy here.

We just want to be close to the Grand Tetons and be able to visit Jackson Hole, I hope September will be a little less crowded. Thanks for the input.

Hi Tom...me again

We drove around today and looked at some of what's available in the Jackson Hole area.

If you prefer full hook-ups (our choice), then Colter Bay RV Park ($65.00/$54.00 seniors) would be the one. They're open until 9/28. It's around 40-45 miles north of the town of Jackson and around 15-20 miles south of the south Yellowstone entrance. I saw some large rigs, so you'll fit. It's very woodsy, and there's a nice grocery store with a deli as you enter. Of course, there is also the obligatory gift shop as well. In the same Village area is a marina and a restaurant. We had tried to get in there, but they were booked well into August. I imagine if you try to book now for Sept., you'll be fine. 800-628-9988

There's also a first-come/first served no hook-up CG in the Colter Bay Village next to the RV Park. Open until 9/21 & $23.00/1/2 price senior.

You're too big for Signal Mtn. and Lizard Creek.

Headwaters is full hook-up, but IMO is too far north. It's closer to the south entrance to YS.

I didn't look at Gros Ventre CG which is no HU - $23.00/1/2 price senior. It's also first come/first served, but the paper says it rarely fills. It's open until 10/3. It's the closest to the town of Jackson, if that matters to you.

Hope this helps....Gayle
