Sounds like that KOA hasn't changed any since we were there in 1997! Couldn't keep them away even with a smokey fire and they prices were high even back then, something around $60/night for two people in a 24' Type C MH. We stayed one night then got into Fishing Bridge the next morning. But we sure won't get into FB with the Magna!

Jake74 - we just went through Cody into Yellowstone. Beautiful! We stayed at Buffalo Bill State Park about 15 minutes west of Cody. We use Reserve America to make the reservations. Full hookups, right by the water - plenty of room. Great park.

Here is the link: Campgrounds and Camping Reservations - ReserveAmerica

Thanks for reply.I'm staying at yellowstone valley inn rv park half way between Cody and east entrance. I have decided to base camp there the whole week and hope I can see the whole park. If not I'll know better next time. It's only about 2 weeks till I pull out for this 4000 mile round trip adventure. Hope it's a problem free trip.

We stayed at Yellowstone's Edge on the way to Livingston, Mt. Nice park not real close but a nice park. We have stayed at Grizzly in West Yellowstone very convenient and Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone, place to park, convenient. sites are small will fit a 40'but tight.

How funny! We're starting off at the Badlands and Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park as well. Then heading to Glacier for a few days, then up to Lake Louise and Banff, then down to Yellowstone, then Grand Tetons, then home.

This will be my first trip out west. I'm staying at cedar pass lodge in badlands, then fort welikit in Custer, then yellowstone valley for yellowstone. My biggest concern is where to overnight on the way. I like to drive 600 miles a day then stop. I'm thinking walmart or pilot truck stops for ease of just pulling in and leaving.

Re: where to stay en route, I've had some success using "RVParky.com". It's a site that allows people to comment on places they have overnighted, including boondock places like rest areas, travel plazas, Wal-Marts, etc. I've used it in planning our upcoming trip out west to find places to sleep for a few hours on the way out and on the way back.
