Anyone traveled the road through the Yellowstone parks? With and R-V! (32ft Winne; "A" class)

Specifically (SR?) 191 from Moran Junction. to West Yellowstone,

I am currently at Laramie. and the most direct route to my destination (West Yellowstone KOA) is via Riverton, Dubois, and via 191 through the park.

Not to worry on those roads. We stay in West Yellowstone KOA before. While we parked the RV at the camp ground before going east into the park. We don't see any issues in travel roads from west yellowstone to Jackson, WY.

Whatever time you think that you will need to see Y’stone NP you better double it!

Remember that Y’stone Park itself is about 50 miles E/W and 70 miles N/S (2.2 Mil Acres) and the Grand Loop (figure 8) road is about 140 miles around. With a 45mph speed limit (radar controlled) and all the thermal attractions and the altitude (Canyon Area is 7918 ft, Old Faithful is 7365 ft and Mammoth Area is ONLY? 6239 ft) it will take a full day for each loop, when walking take it easy, carry/drink lots of water as it can be very exhausting, then you will only see the highlights. If your luck is like mine I guarantee that Old Faithful will have gone off just minutes before you arrived and will have to wait about another hour and 10-15 minutes for it to go off again kill time by walking around the upper geyser basin. When you are at Old faithful be sure to go into the Old Faithful Inn and look up when inside. When in the visitor center or the Inn they will have a sign displaying approximately when the next eruption will occur (+ or – about 10/15 minutes)

We have lived about 110 miles from the West Y’stone entrance for 50 years and go there a couple of times each summer and I still haven’t seen everything yet.

Thanks for the Info; Just a Further thought, Are their any Fee`s for traveling through the Park roads (specifically 20, 89, and 191?). We are really just looking to "sample" the Park, and see the major sights, my wife has mobility issues, and uses a "Travelscoot", so "hiking" (more that a few hundred yards) is not on the "menu".

We intend to stay outside the park itself, at the KOA. If we can use the R-V (No Toad) we will, otherwise I will look for a Rental.

Over 65 you can get a life time pass, about $10. If your wife is disabled she can get a free lifetime pass. She would need disability papers. They don't give them out as easily as the disability parking passes.
