Trip to Yellowstone

We are taking our second trip to Yellowstone from California but the first in our 39 ft Dutchstar towing a car on a dolly. The first time was several years ago and we went through the south entrance. I don't rememer what the roads were like going from the Salt Lake area across into Wyoming via I-80 and then onto Hwy 189 and 89 into Jackson. I want a trouble free drive with no narrow roads or tight mountain turns. Would it be better for me to take I-15 into Idaho and go through the West Entrance? We wanted to see the Grand Tetons and our destination at Grant Village. But we could see that on the way out as we are travelling into Colorado after that. Any suggestions for which route for a smooth ride with a Towable?

We were just there with 40' and toad. Inbound from SLC was on I-15 to Idaho Falls then 20 to W. Yellowstone. No problems at all. The road between Jackson and S. Yellowstone is seriously under repair (new bridges so will be a long time). We had 20-30 minute delays at each of 3 "flaggers".

Yellowstone

Thanks for the info, I will definitely take the I-15 through Idaho. Does anyone have a good RV park or campground for a quick overnight stay, that they like in the Salt Lake area on the way up I-15?

We did stay a few days in SLC and found it to be overpriced for what you got. As most RV Parks in the Yellowstone area are "first come - first served" we over-nighted where an early departure would arrive in the park @ mid morning. It was Jessen's RV Park located 2 miles south of Ashton on Hwy. 20. Nice little widow lady and the view of the Tetons some 50 miles away was great.
Her card has a phone - 800-747-3356 and internet site - www.jessenrv.com neither of which have we tried.
They will be on your side of the road (east) and should you miss it (we did) there is a truck turnaround a 1/2 mile further.
