There are plenty of FS and out of the way campgrounds just on the outside that you shouldn't even think of this.

Some of you replying to my question apparently did not read all of my post, and missed the part where I said my question was asked out of "idle curiousity" and nothing else. BTW, this was our first trip to Yellowstone and we drove in a car. I do not anticipate ever going there in a motorhome due to the long distance from our home.

You asked, people answered. I think that the first officer to drive by after dark would put you on your way with a hefty fine. They enforce the rules strictly so that people do not trash the park or start unauthorized campsites. Before you scream about not trashing the park, it is just one of the things that they want to avoid, I didn't say you were going to do it.

I know it is prohibited to park there overnight

Have you ever heard of a camper taking advantage of them when they can't get a campsite?


No. It's prohibited . [emoticon]

Just my perception...most rangers are tree huggers that think anyone in a RV is squandering natural resources to build a RV and drive it. I assume they are the same ones that put that huge boulder or log at the rear of a RV campsite to frustrate large RV owners.
I wouldn't count on a ranger cutting you any slack.

On our one and only trip to Yellowstone we stayed at Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone just outside the west entrance. I guess I don't understand the attraction of staying INSIDE the park.


How about $80 a night vs $14 (Golden Age Pass) as a starting point??

The time we visited Yellowstone in our Class C and after touring around to all of the main attactions in our RV (fairly easy in a 24 footer) - we stayed in one of the campsites inside the park that was out of the way on the side of the park away from where most of the attractions are.

It was drycamping only and it was very quiet and uncrowded. It was some time ago, but I believe it was a campground in kindof the Northeast corner of the park - over by where wolves could most likely be seen.

Yellowstone NP is a great place and the rangers and other staff are doing their best to preserve the beauty and features of the park. Been there many times over the past fifty years; winter and summer, and the Park Service does a good job in managing the park so people can enjoy their trip. Yes there are times when crowded conditions cause a stressful trip, but that comes with the territory; if you can't plan for a fall or spring adventure. As far as having a big rock at the rear of a camp site, that was probably placed there to prevent backing onto vegetation and eventually causing damage. There are some good USFS CG's not too far away from Yellowstone that can handle the overload if can't make it to the park and you want something similar. Hat's off to the NPS employees, they do a good job!

Staying inside the park. Then you don't have to commute. Then you can hear the elk bugle at night. You can hear owls and hawks. You get to camp with people that have been going there for 50 years. You camp with people that stay in tents.
