Question September in Yellowstone

Thinking about fall trip to northwest to visit relatives in Idaho. Considering stopping in Yellowstone for 3/4 nights at end of season(Fishing Village closes Sept 20. What weather can I expect in higher elevations at this time since we are from deep south. 32 ft Allegro with CRV toad. Can we expect to be able to go up to Lamar Valley from Fishing Village without too much trouble. Any suggestions??? Thanks

Tiger..... we were there at Yellowstone last year for a few days just before Labor Day. Chilly at night, pleasant days if in sunshine, but cool when overcast. Definitely not hot.

I would concur with this. Generally, you can expect pleasant days with cooler nights but these are higher elevations. You can't be completely sure what you might get including freezing temperatures. Pay attention to the meteorological info that you will find posted in the park in various places. Forecasts can be important as these areas transition from Summer to Fall/Winter.

Ditto for above. I always carry enough RV/Marine antifreeze to do a water system winterization just in case.




This is June in West Yellowstone:





Since you are from the South - That white stuff is SNOW

We've been to Yellowstone (& don't forget the Grand Tetons, next door) many times during September to about the 3rd week. We've never had snow although it certainly could. However, the liklihood of it building up and sticking around for days is slim. That's still too early. Your nights will be cool - 30's to 40's and days sunny and pleasant 50-70.

Take your trip and enjoy! It's a perfect time to be in those parks.

Keep in mind that after Labor Day, services in YNP start shutting down.

Study the official Yellowstone web site for particulars on campground, services and road closing dates. Also, lots of information of things to do. All national parks have a web site like this and we find it very helpful:

Opening & Closing Dates of Facilities - Yellowstone National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

You'll note that the Mammoth area stays open the longest and their non-reservable campground is open all year. We really enjoy that campground.

When we were there in the last few weeks of September year before last, we had 3 inches of snow in West Yellowstone. The road over Craig's Pass was closed for the day as they had to plow it. (This is the road between Old Faithful and Grant's Village.) The nightly snows mostly melted away during the day when temperatures would be in the 40-55 range. A beautiful time to visit the Park, I've spent almost 20 summers working and touring, but never had time to visit in fall before.

If your RV doesn't have a heated wet bay, take a few incandescent 'trouble' lights and extension cords for heating your tanks. Not a big issue, but doesn't hurt to be prepared.

We were at Fishing Village mid September 2012 and had two nights where there were notices posted to disconnect water at night and because of freeze warnings. We had no problem in the RV.

We stayed in Fishing Bridge in 2014 and left the day before it closed. We had good weather, similar to what has been described. However, be forewarned about fishing bridge, it is a place to park only. Spaces are tight and when we were there the campground roads were so pockmarked that there were places that you needed to be careful about hitting bottom if you got a wheel into one. Great location four touring Yellowstone BTW we are com GA.

As others have said, it should be very nice, but be prepared for anything. Make sure you've got slack in your schedule should you have to hunker down for a day or two... the last thing you want to do is be driving and worrying about black ice...
