Take the toad?

Planning a trip from Georgia to Grand Tetons/Yellowstone for the end of July. Any recommendations on taking the toad? Worth hauling it all the way there and back or can we get by not having it? Any recommendations/ideas will be greatly appreciated.

You will need a car, much easier to tour the park. Just did that in 2011 and found it to be a great experience, brought our granddaughter who demonstrated she is a very good photographer. Plenty of "stop the car!" moments.

When we don't take ours along, we usually wish we had it. But sometimes we don't and get by, and a little walking never hurt anyone. On a trip that far I would have to take it. If you have a breakdown it would be very handy to not be stranded in my opinion. And there will be little side trips I am shur you will want to take.

Take your toad. There is very few spots that you can stop and get out with a 40ft MH. We have gone 4 times with our Discovery 40x, and besides the arrival/departure thru the park we left the RV and took the toad. Much easier to find a pull out and parking spot to see all the sights.

Stay in west Yellowstone at grizzly RV park or at the north entrance at Yellowstone edge RV park

By all means TAKE YOUR TOAD!
And a good digital camera because there are tons of places to go and see that you will want pictures of.
Been there 3 times and still dream of going again.

I'd take the towed even though there are buses running. You might want to drive out for lunch/dinner like we did when at Fishing Bridge.

We did the Yellow Stone trip and I would take the toad, you can take some bus tours where you might not need a car but going to and returning plus the side trips will require a car. Our trip was just over 5000 miles and it was not a problem at all.

We never leave home without the toad. 2000 Tracker easily flat toad. The trailer stays behind unless I really think I need it and all my toys.

TAKE THE TOAD! You will need the toad to deal with the traffic. Yellowstone is very large in area and MUCH to see. Using the toad will allow you access to any area in the park and can be driven to the Tetons and Jackson Hole. You MUST have a reservation in the park as a first choice or just out side before you go. Camp sites are unlikely to be gotten as you arrive. Good luck and enjoy the ride.

We went to the Tetons a year ago next week. Took the toad and it was well worth doing. There is so much to see off the beaten part such as Signal Mountain. We had friends that went and tried renting but it was a disaster. Be sure to allow enough time to enjoy. We spent two weeks a Colter Bay RV which is in the NP at Moran. Yellowstone is a big park with so much to see. In our three months we hit 15 National Parks. Enjoy; it is fantastic.

Unless you don't particularly want to see a whole while you're there, into long distance power walking, or are taking your bikes and love mountain biking, you might be better off taking you towed. Have a great trip!.
