Beautiful parks in and near Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Get your reservations early! Please report on road conditions when you get a chance. OND

Hi Welcome to the forum! I was in Yellowstone today, 5/17. The east entrance is closed due to an avalanche. Had to use the North East entrance which added some more miles, we are staying in Cody. The place is huge and takes a lot of time to go from one spot to another. I was also surprised at the roads, they are not real wide and have no shoulder. The only campground with full hookups is Fishing Bridge and they are having electrical issues. So call first if you need electric. The east entrance would be the closest to Fishing Bridge and will take you an hour at least to go the 27 miles. The east entrance is 53 miles from Cody. Make sure you buy food and non perishables before leaving Cody(they have a Wal Mart) as you are at the mercy of the Park. Yellowstone is fabulous and we got to see all the wildlife today. If they open the East Entrance we are planning to go see Old Faithful. Have a wonderful time!!

While in Cody, you do not want to miss this place:

I thought it would only take a couple of hours, but we ended up spending the whole day. What a wonderful museum.

We love Yellowstone, went last fall for two weeks and planning our next triip this Sept for another two weeks.
A couple great sources of information are the following:
"Yellowstone Treasures" by Janet Chappel, this book is worth its weight in gold, the information in these pages cannot be found anywhere else. Even if you have been to Yellowstone yearly this book will add an entire new light to your trip.
Next is another website
Click on State you are interested in camping in and take it from there. Good reviews by actual travelers, what they liked and what they did not like or what their experience had been.
We have found a couple of great places to stay thanks to this site...
hope this information is helpful. No matter when you visit Yellowstone it will be awesome!

We visit YNP every year since we live halfway between YNP and Glacier. We always stay in the Grizzly RV Park in West yellowstone but make reservations as early as possible. Then we always go through the park in our toad which is much easier. After a few days in West we head down to the Tetons and stay in Colter Bay RV Park. Good luck in your travels.

Just be aware that almost everything in Yellowstone will close at noon on Sunday Sept 25th. Campgrounds, resturants, stores, etc. The same holds true for campgrounds in the Colter Bay area of Jackson Hole. See here Yellowstone National Park - Facilities' Opening & Closing Dates (U.S. National Park Service)

We went last year and stayed at Yellowstone Edge on 89 S., address is Livingston,Montana,but its 17 miles south of the town of Livingston. It has pull through sites along the Yellowstone River,great views of the surrounding mountains and has free WIFI. It is 34 miles north of the "orginal entrance" to Yellowstone. If you want to see lots of wildlife make sure you are in the park late afternoon. Traffic stopped for awhile due to a herd of buffaloe walking across the road and down beside our truck. I could have easily reached out and touched one on the nose! THe campgrounds in the park were too rustic and weren't really campgrounds,just parking out in a field! We were coming from the National rally in Williams,Az. so entered through the south entrance,which meant we had to tow all through the park. The roads were very narrow and steep in places,with no shoulder. Tom said he was afraid to look in the mirrors and see just how close the rigs wheels were to the edge!

Loved it! One tiny error we made was to have reservations on the west side, entered from the east side. Had to set up the pop up (long time ago) in the dark (raining buckets) with only teen age and 7 year old daughters to help. What great memories. Plan to go back soon!
