Bridge Bay Campground was named for its proximity to Bridge Bay Marina on Yellowstone Lake. The area is quite scenic, with wooded areas, open meadows and some limited views of the lake. Because of its location, the campground is popular with fishing and boating enthusiasts. The campground offers 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, and at 7,800 feet in elevation.
There are over 400 regular sites and 4 group sites. RV, tent, and combination RV/tent sites are available. Campsites for hikers and cyclists are also available ($9.75+tax per person, non-reservable). Portions of the lower loops of the campground are more open with fewer trees. The upper loops are more wooded, with a combination of sunny and shaded sites. Some sites have a distant view of Yellowstone Lake. Early in the season, several loops are closed to reservations due to potential bear activity.
Additional campground facilities include:
When making a reservation, you must enter the size of your tent (in feet) or the combined length of your RV and any other vehicles or towed vehicles. (e.g. the length of your truck in addition to the length of your trailer when fully open.)
Please keep in mind that most campsites in Yellowstone will not accommodate oversize units. If you arrive at the campground/RV park with equipment different than that for which you have reserved, we will not be able to accommodate you.
Rates do not include taxes and fees. Rates and dates are subject to change. Access Pass and Senior Pass holders receive a 50% discount on site rates. Use Promo Code PASS when booking a reservation.
RVs up to 40’ long may be accommodated in pull-through and back-in sites. The sites may not be level, so campers should plan accordingly. While there are no utility hook-ups at the sites, an RV dump station is available at the campground. The dump station may not be available early and late season due to freezing temperatures.
You can book tours in advance online, through our reservations office by calling 307-344-7311, or at the activities desk located at the campground registration office.
