Grizzly is not next to grizzly bear and wolf sanctuary. The one next to it is Buffalo Crossing. Grizzly is about four blocks away.
Make reservations early as better parks fill up early in season!

Sorry, we're looking for full hookups


Either One of the KOAs in / near West Glacier. There's two. The one closer to the city of West Glacier is the nicer of the two, it's more like what you'd expect a KOA to be.

If you want to be in the park, there's Fishing Bridge RV campground, which has full hookups.

Neither KOA is open right now so it's probably impossible to make reservations.

When I went to park in 2006, we booked Fishing bridge about a year in advance.

Reservations are must due to the amount of visitors the park gets.
West Glacier is a long, long drive to Yellowstone. West Yellowstone, not so much. You can make reservations for both the KOAs near West Yellowstone even though the parks are closed. Don't know for sure if they are answering or returning phone calls, but the online system is available year round.

Both KOA's are taking reservations right now and filling up quickly.
Go to KOA.com to reserve online.

There are some great campgrounds(in fact 10 or 12) within the Park that help one really experience the wild of Yellowstone with large animals hanging out near and sometimes even on your site. I would miss not being in the Park if at a nearby private campground. BUT. no hook-ups except for Fishing Bridge which may be down for renovation. About half of the Park campgrounds are reserveable and the others not. We like Mammoth, Madison and Bridge bay.

We like Bakers Hole. It’s about 5 miles north of west Yellowstone and has water @
electric but not sewer. Several sites are on the river and it really roomy.

Several places at West Yellowstone. We stayed there at the Buffalo Crossing RV Park. It's just outside the west entrance to the park.

Take note that the east side of the north loop (main loop road) is closed till 2022. Somewhere near tower falls. You can find the information on the national park website
