No Electricity at Yellowstone’s Fishing Bridge Campground Next Summer

The issue: Concessionaire Xanterra and the National Park Service are in the midst of a spat over who should fund improvements at the campground. The current electrical system was installed in the early 1960s and is inadequate for today’s camper needs: the big RVs that enter the Park typically require 60-amp service, while the current system is rated at only 20 amps.

If negotiations work out, an upgrade to the electrical system could be done in time for the summer 2011 season.

There are over 300 campsites at the Fishing Bridge facility.
