We entered thru the south gate and coming in the south entrance and traveling north scared the living hell out of my wife!! She's not fond of heights and there are huge drop offs on the passenger side of our 41' coach, very steep and very deep! But after a while she settled down and soon we both enjoyed those amazing views. We camped about 8 miles south of the west gate at a lakeside CG, a beautiful place, I think it was Passport America so 50% off the daily rate. But use the toad and travel the big loop with all the pull offs, speed limit is a comfortable 35mph but some idiots want to do 60mph and really tailgate so we just pulled off as soon as the A/H came up behind us. You'll love it! Drive safe and enjoy your trip... don't forget the camera!!!

A trip to Red Lodge for lunch and ice cream via the Beartooth Hwy is a great drive. Chief Joseph hwy is another...both are toad roads and we enjoyed them as much, if not more than the roads inside the park. We camped in Wapiti and loved the drive into the park everyday. Also, Cody was a great visit as well.

That's the Snake River Canyon between South Entrance and Lewis Lake. The road has a stone wall along all the steep parts, you might not have noticed sitting so high. Also, the speed limit, except at junctions and congestion, is 45 mph, maybe that's why you had tailgaters. Locals call RVs 'Gramps in a can.'
