From West Yellowstone north to I-90

From West Yellowstone, I'm trying to decide on Rt. 191 vs Rt. 89 north to I-90. Would like to take Rt. 89 to stay at either Livingston / Paradise Valley KOA or Yellowstone's Edge RV Park. I'm pulling a 40' FW and not sure about driving through the park via 191 to Rt. 89 north. I know Rt. 191 north along the Gallatin River is a beautiful drive, but I'd like to try Rt. 89.

I've gone both directions many times in a 34' MH towing a Jeep. Biggest problem is the people stopping on the road to gawk at the wildlife. There are a couple tight spots just south of Mammoth but negotiable.

People do it every day in units like yours. 45' motorhomes towing F250 Fords, eighteen wheelers delivering gasoline and goods in the park etc can be seen on this road.

If you consider yourself a skilled driver of your rig, go for it! Downhill from Mammoth is steep for 3 or 4 miles. Steep but not too steep.

Not doing it leaves out a lot of beautiful scenery.

He means Mammoth Hot Springs it's on 89 just before you get to the Montana state line.

Paradise Valley and Livingston are fantastic. There is no doubt about that. Depending on the weather the road is great. When we lived in Jackson, WY we would go both ways alternatively. Loved them both but PV was always the memorable drive. I can see why so many movie stars and musicians buy a place there. The land is special. I guess that's where it got it's name.

Are you going East or West on 90? If West take 191 if East take 89. Simple.

I'm going North West, but I was wanting to drive 89 if it's a safe route. I've seen 191 but I've never been up 89 to Paradise Valley. The small amount of out of the way distance means nothing when you've already driven 3000 miles to get there.

We've taken our 40' motorhome towing the Jeep on Hwy 89 through Yellowstone quite a few times. Nice drive. Our favorite campground in the park is at Mammoth. Be sure to check the park's website before going as they have a special section for alerts and road information. Construction is always going on in that park.

Here's a good description of all the Yellowstone entrance highways:
