Mammoth will accommodate your rig just fine. It's first come, first served, so plan to arrive there before noon. Oh, and it is dry camping - water is available at spigots scattered throughout the campground, but there is no dump station.

We camped for five or six nights there in a 40' plus toad. The only issue was keeping the fridge lit - it didn't like the altitude much. We really enjoyed the campground - spacious sites, nice views, and Verizon cell/data work 5x5 there.

Both routes you mentioned have their advantages:

Driving north from Boysen State Park on route 20 will take you through the Wind River Canyon Scenic Byway to Thermopolis. At Thermopolis, you can visit Hot Springs State Park and soak for a while in the mineral waters. In Cody is the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, a really great western museum. There is a nightly rodeo there too.

The other choice, route 26 over Togwotee Pass into Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park, is also a scenic drive with spectacular views of the Teton range on the west side of the pass. The climb and descent over the pass are both gradual. No white knuckle mountain driving. The park entrance fee for Grand Teton includes Yellowstone as well. You really shouldn't miss the Tetons when you are in the area. IMO the south entrance from Jackson Hole to Yellowstone is an easier climb than the east entrance from Cody.

IMO Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone is the best bet for a rig of your size.

Route 20 from West Yellowstone to Idaho Falls is a very easy drive.

Unless you have a burning desire to see Greybull, WY take 120 out of Thermopolis directly into Cody. Saves 40 miles.


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.

Grizzly RV Park in W. Yellowstone and Colter Bay at Grand Teton. Both great places.

We were there towards the end of last September, stayed at Grizzle Park in W.Yellowstone. I am glad I did, I had planned to stay in YS but Fishing Bridge closed by time we got there. After driving around with the toad, I am glad we stayed in W.Yellowstone and not have to drive the MH and Toad in the park roads.
