We would love to go there in August or September but have no reservations. Is it possible to do that? Most every campground is full. I really don't want to spend the night along the side of the road.

it would be best to call yellowstone before entering the park simply because the campgrounds are pretty far inside the park.
if you plan on entering from West Yellowstone, you have several rv parks in town, which is right on the border of the Park.
Henry's Lake State Park, Idaho is only 15 miles south of West Yellowstone.

there are at least a couple of rv parks just outside the east gate to Glacier, in St. Mary's. A KOA and Johnson's of St. Mary's.

Remember, Fishing Bridge RV park is closed this season, so that's 340 less RV sites this year. It will be harder than normal to find a place without a reservation.

Mammoth & Norris Campgrounds in Yellowstone don't take reservations, first come first serve only. In September we have camped just outside the park then driven in the morning to get a campsite. Be at the campground between 9 & 10 am and you will get a site. Check the dates when campgrounds close each fall. See the campground chart on web site below on what time of day each campground did fill up to estimate what time be at the campground. September is better, not sure about August.

See info: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm
