Which two park CG's did you choose? Our plan is to stay at two CG's in YNP (undecided on which two at this point) and two in Grand Tetons (Colter Bay and Gros Ventre) spending 10-14 days in each spot. There is so much to do and see in these two beautiful parks. We been to YNP and GTNP many times..but when we go this time it will be the first time in our motor home.

We've stayed 4-5 days at Bridge Bay a few years back and we loved it. The second day we were there a bison came close to our MH and decided to take a break about 50 ft from us and spent most of the day there relaxing.

He was quiet and sleepy and did not cause us any problems. But remember the high altitude. The fist day we when we arrived early afternoon temperature was around 85-90 degrees. So when we went to bed we left all windows opened. Wow the next morning around 6 am, the temperature inside the mh was around 45 degrees. So for the rest of our stay we closed most windows.

Enjoy your stay.

We were in Yellowstone last June and it was fine temperature-wise.

I stayed in Mid June and loved it. Fishing Bridge still had 20 ft snow plow drifts at the edge of the parking area. Some of the lakes were still frozen over and the snow was just starting to melt. I did not have any problems with my water lines freezing but I think my Baystar has heated storage bays. I did not run the heater very much because being from Florida I thought the Snow and cold was a new experience. The weather changed very quickly and soon found all that snow turned to mud in a matter of a few days.
