We stayed at Madison a few years ago in a pull-through site (our 5er measures just shy of 30') and we had enough room to fit in most of the sites. The pull-throughs probably give you some more options for positioning the RV for slides and awnings, but I doubt that you will have significant issues.

yep, Madison has a number of pull-thru sites that are big enough for larger RVs.
can't remember if Grant did though.

Grant and Madison campgrounds say max of 30' for trailers in back-in sites. After making reservations in May, I just picked up my new 5th wheel and found it is 30'6".

I've looked at pictures of the campsites and can't imagine another 6" is going to be a deal breaker but if anyone has camped there I'd certainly appreciate opinions. I can't determine if 30' is the length of the site, or if it's a measurement with the trailer's wheels backed up to the log stop and the rear of the trailer hanging over.

I called the reservations center today and was assured they could work me in a spot, but I'd hate to drive for 3 days to find it's a no go.

Any help appreciated.


I must have missed the Measurement Police - https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fusea........d/20346895/gotomsg/20361701.cfm#20361701

This was a while ago ----- but we loved it in our 42'+ in late October/November.

We stayed in Madison in 2016 with a 26ft TT. It was a pull through. We could pull in, but not enough room to lull out because of close trees. No problem,I backed out. I do not remember seeing large motorhomes or large trailers while we were there. I think anything over 30 would have limited choices.

My Grayhawk is 30" 9", and I was towing a CRV. I called the campground number and over a few days they found me a 3 night and a 2 night opening,(2 different campgrounds) THAT THEY SAID WOULD FIT my equipment, so no surprises upon arrival.
I strongly recommend calling, not using the website.
and Yellowstone was great (only our 5th trip)...


You did not mention but I'm assuming the 2 different campgrounds you stayed at were Grant and Madison. Were your sites back in or pull through?

I did make reservations over the phone but the folks I talked with were at a reservation center and not at the campground and basically were repeating what they had been told about the campsites, i.e. 30 feet max.

If you remember the number where I could actually speak with someone at the Yellowstone campgrounds I would really appreciate.


Actually Grant Village and bridge Bay - talked to the reservation center, telling them the sizes of my 2 units (class c and crv), they gave me reservations based on that info. We had no problem at check in, and truthfully, no one looked at my unit before sending us to our site.
Both sites were fine, i.e., we fit.
Grant btw, comes with free showers.

The guy across the street from us in Bridge bay however had a major problem - his site was occupied by a buffalo who stayed the night, so for some odd reason the camper in question didn't.

Several years ago, we were in Madison CG in a 30 ft site, with our 29 ft class C, which actually measure 30.5' and our dolly and toad.
