Grizzly is a nice park a couple of blocks from the West Entrance, also within walking distance to the town of West Yellowstone. I have heard it is not as rustic as the KOA. We have stayed at Grizzly a couple of times. When we go back it will be Grizzly again. Have a great trip, we love Yellowstone.

we stayed last fall at grizzly and it was a very nice location and RV campground. the facilities were nice and clean and in very good condition. I'd recommend it. I haven't stayed at the KOA so I can't comment on it.

I did stay at the KOA. Nice but the Grizzly is nicer and closer to town and the park. I am going in August, wish it was June.

Yellowstone in June

Getting pretty exited about our trip at this time.
I have all the stops planned out with plenty of time to see the sites.
Need to install the rear shock when they get here.
Taking of the old front shocks the other day I figured out they where the originals. 😱😱
I am looking for a much improved Ride.
Also installed a CB for when I am in the back country😎

Same here! Can't wait to go.

It is roughly 1,000 miles from Los Angeles and I figure on driving half way on the first day and resting up mid-way in Beaver, Utah. Then drive the rest of the way the next day.

I also bought a CB radio just in case I don't get any cell phone signals and to just listen in on chatter and weather/traffic reports.

Sounds like a good plan. Enjoy your trip.,

It's looking like we might split the middle of you guys, leaving from the Havasu area around the 7th or 8th of June, and possibly overnighting in Vegas to hit a new restaurant.

From there we will likely take a few days once we are north of Evanston to check out some future retirement locations, then into the park for a couple of days, then a big loop up to Kalispell, MT, and, if conditions and timing work, up to Lake Louise before working our way to Redmond, WA, for the last weekend of the month.

Just a few more days to go before we head out, we are packing for low 30's at night and mod 60's in the day.
I still need to replace 1 item on the RV once it gets here Thursday, but I think that we will be OK pulling out Saturday afternoon!!
Once we make it to our first stop in Nebraska the rest will be much shorter days 😎

We really enjoy swimming at the Fire Hole River and the Boiling river as a hot tub. They are on the maps and any ranger can point you in the right direction.
As for a place to stay I recommend staying in the park most likely at a first come first serve, Noriss is great but arrive early and start looking for someone leaving and stake claim. The park is to big to stay outside of it and drive back and forth. Also the park is where the action is. Have Fun!!

Talking

So much GREAT information! Wish we could go in June or September, but because of work......we're looking at taking two weeks mid July, 2016. Following all the great advice on this forum, we went to South Dakota a year ago, but wanted to have more time for Yellowstone. We're looking for advice on route from Michigan and stops/sights along the way? We usually drive 8 to 10 hours each day. Thank you!

Have a great trip, we are heading that way a week from tomorrow, can't wait to get on the road. 4 nights at grand Teton National Park, then moving over to Fishing Bridge. Hoping the rain clears up and maybe a little warmer days.

Have fun.

We are planning 4 days for the trip back.
I am sure many of you have been, so any helpful hints on what "not to miss would be great!
It will be our biggest trip to date with about 3400 miles.
Should be lots of fun. We are starting out trip in west Tennessee.

Did this trip last year, the KOA is great and so is Sturgis. Lots to see right around the KOA. Sturgis is pretty quiet without all the bikes but is still fun. Good luck on your trip.

Grizzly RV park is not "rustic" at all, it is one of the most modern, well-kept RV parks we've ever visited.
If at all possible, schedule a week in Yellowstone, 4 days allows you to see the major tourist attractions, but not to explore the out-of-the-way things that are every bit as interesting as Old Faithful. Don't worry about seeing everything the one visit, we've been there 5 times, each for a week, and still haven't seen everything they offer.
We were there a week before the big fire, and again the next year. The change was quite dramatic.
I'll second the warning to stay away from the bison, they can run up to 40 mph, and weigh a ton. One year my Mom organized a tour for retirees to Yellowstone. A bison was blocking the road, the bus driver blew his horn, the bison charged the bus and demolished the front of the bus to the extent a second bus had to be rushed in before they could get home.
