Yellowstone Visit

In early September, I will be traveling from Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone, MT to Colter Bay Village RV Park in the Grand Teton National Park in a 45 Motorhome pulling a car. By far, the shortest route is US-191 S/US-20 E/US-287 S through Yellowstone National Park. Has anyone else traveled this route in a 45 motorhome? Any problems?

I'm here now.. No problem with it.. I have a 40 DP towing a car and the roads you are talking about traveling are no problem.. The only problem you will encounter through the part is everyone stopping to look at the animals or bison in the roadway.. That part of you trip will be the least of your worries.. Enjoy your trip!

I just got back from that trip 2 weeks ago and we were 54" total length with no issues, as Iwillbeit said the longest part is all the people stopping in the road to look at the animals. Grizzly RV park is very nice and a great place to stay, one of my favorite on our trip.

As a matter of fact I really don't know of any other roads from West Yellowstone that would be useful to travel to Colter Bay. To go US 20 or US 191 take you in the wrong direction, your only route is through Yellowstone and down the J.D. Rockefeller Parkway to Grand Teton NP. In YNP, when you get to Madison Junction, turn right (S) towards Old Faithful. This will take you over Craig's Pass then down to Yellowstone Lake. It's not a bad road, speed is 45 mph in the park. On long upgrades, downshift to bring engine RPMs back into best power/torque range. At West Thumb Junction, turn right again (S) towards Lewis Lake and the South Entrance. West Yellowstone to Colter Bay is 87 miles, about 2 hr and 10 minutes with no stops or major BHM jams. (Big Hairy Mammal)

When I was there 2 years ago in September, Craig's Pass was closed for snow plowing the day we wished to leave West Yellowstone, we had to go north at Madison to Norris to Canyon to West Thumb. It added 28 miles to the trip.

Going through Yellowstone to Grand Teton is easy for big rigs. Have a good trip!
