What to do???

Planning what will likely be our last trip with our grandkids as they are getting too old (teenagers!) to be seen with gram and grumps. Looking at Yellowstone as none of us have been there. Leaving Michigan UP late July for 2 weeks. Question is, is it worth it to go all the way to West Yellowstone for campground or rather stay around Cody? What say you?

We camped at a KOA in Cody it had a tour bus that took us to a rodeo and downtown Cody for restaurants and Wild Bill museum.
Kids got a kick out of being over the pits at the rodeo and walking over the corrals for livestock.
We came in the west side of Yellow Stone because we were returning from Canada.
If you come in east side make reservations at Fisherman's Bridge campground before traveling into park

Yes it's much better to stay in W. Yellowstone, but if you can spend a couple of days in Cody it's great too. At least do the Buffalo Bill Center. Yellowstone is THE BEST PLACE IN THE USA!!!!!

We stayed in Cody the day before we went to Yellowstone. Long drive from Cody & I don't recommend the KOA although Cody is an interesting town. There was what looked like a nice RV park in town but I can't recall the name. We stayed in W. Yellowstone at Grizzly RV park which was very nice & hits the top of preferred list. The town is small & everything is within walking distance from the RV park.

ALSO....consider the Colter Bay park just South of Yellowstone's South entrance. It's a WONDERFUL park and and exceptional location for easily touring Yellowstone, AND the surrounding Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole areas as well.

P.S. Liked the ..."gram and grumps."
