Fishing Bridge is closed for 2021
All visitors are required to wear CDC-compliant masks while in the indoor public areas of our facilities. Learn more about these and other practices.
Closure Update (1/8/21)
Impacts related to the coronavirus pandemic continue to cause a delay in the completion of renovations to the Fishing Bridge RV Park. As a result, the RV Park will not open in 2021. For guests with prior reservations, we will automatically cancel your reservation and refund your deposit.
Once completed, the renovation will bring new and larger sites, a larger parking lot, a new dump station and recycling area, and an expanded registration building with more showers and laundry facilities. Four comfort stations will also be renovated to current accessibility standards.
We plan to reopen the RV Park for the Summer 2022 season. We currently anticipate opening lodging and camping reservations for the 2022 summer season for booking on May 1.
If you’re interested in rebooking your Summer 2021 reservations in or near the park, and do not require hookups, you can find more information here:
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
The Fishing Bridge Recreational Vehicle Park is located near the mouth of the Yellowstone River as it leaves Yellowstone Lake. The RV park is named after the Fishing Bridge, a wooden vehicle bridge that used to provide a great platform from which park visitors would fish for native Cutthroat trout. Today, fishing is not allowed from the bridge, although visitors still congregate on the walkways to watch White Pelicans and other waterfowl gliding along the river’s surface, and to look for trout swimming under the crystal clear water.
In 2022, we will be completing an extensive renovation of the RV Park. The renovation will bring new and larger sites, a larger parking lot, new dump station and recycling area, and an expanded registration building with more showers and laundry facilities. Four comfort stations will also be renovated to bring them to current ADA (accessibility) standards.
The Upper Loop of the RV park will have 172 renovated and paved sites ranging from 40-feet to 95-feet in length. The 40-foot sites will be double-wide and back-in. The majority of new sites will include pull-through drives, and all of the Upper Loop will have upgraded 50 amp/30 amp and 110-volt electrical service and picnic tables. (No other sites/loops were included in this renovation. There are 30- to 35-foot double-wide, back-in sites in other loops and 30-foot single-wide back-in sites.*)
We are doubling the size of the registration building with a floor plan that will accommodate additional showers (womens’ showers will increase from 8 to 14 and mens’ showers will increase from 8 to 11), plus two family showers. There will be an increase in the number of washing machines from 11 to 26, and dryers from 14 to 24. There will still be a small retail space in the registration building as well.

The Fishing Bridge RV Park will provide 310 sites designated for hard-sided recreational vehicles only. This is because the RV park is located in bear habitat. Also because of its location, we ask that RV campers be especially diligent in their compliance with park food storage regulations. Recreational vehicles with a combined length (RV and tow vehicle) of up to 95 feet in length can be accommodated based on the availability of the right-size site. All sites are open, with a mix of pull-through and back-in sites. A pine forest surrounds the RV Park. Additional facilities and services include:
When calling to make a reservation be prepared to give 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 oversized 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.
You can book tours in advance through our reservations office by calling 307-344-7311 or at the activities desk located at the campground registration office. The following guided tours have a pick-up point at the RV Park Registration Office. Advance reservations are recommended.
Please note that odors attract bears. The following items (new, clean, dirty, empty or full) may NOT be left outside, in tents, or in tent trailers at any time, day or night. Items listed below need to be stored in a hard sided vehicle or in shared food storage boxed located throughout our campgrounds when not in use. A violation of these rules may result in a citation and/or confiscation of these items. The bears’ future and the safety of others depend on you.
