Jackson Hole and Grand Tetons can be accessed from Yellowstone's south entrance. Make reservations at Colter Bay RV Park - full hookups inside the park. There is a Colter Bay with no hookups, don't get confused. To get to Cody, exit Yellowstone's east entrance. There are several rv parks in and around Cody.
Do you have a route to Yellowstone yet? That would help with figuring out the most logical order to include Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Cody. You are about to see some beautiful country!!!

You won't need air conditioning if you stay in the park. Colter Bay campground and Gros Ventre campground are both first come - no reservations. They each have 350 sites and if you get there early in the day you'll get a site - dry camping but you can use a generator. We've been to both often at different times of the season and have always gotten a site with our 40' motorhome. Safe travels!

Begin your vacation adventure by coming to the North Entrance of Yellowstone National Park, situated close to Gardiner, Montana. See historic sites and start checking out Mammoth Hot Springs and all the geothermal features of this wondrous area.
Gardiner, Montana is nestled in Paradise Valley with Yellowstone River running through town. While here, you should explore this quaint western town, and perhaps even see some wildlife wandering the streets, like elk and bison.
Visit the Roosevelt Arch, dedicated by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903. You can see it from far off when traveling north of Gardiner on Highway 89.
At Mammoth Hot Springs there are the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces that will hold you enthralled with their formations and colors.
Visit Fort Yellowstone and learn some history of the area. The Albright Visitor Center has a museum where you can find out facts about the wildlife in Yellowstone.
Hate living in the house which is like a box.
So I like Tent Camping.
Again thanks for the great suggestions. We are not able to do dry camping as we have a fifth wheel with out a generator.
Even though you do not have a generator, By using your battery only, you should be able to get about two days of camping. Run your fridge on propane, cook everything outside, or on your gas range. Run water pump only when necessary.
OH, and park next to a camper with a generator, Just in case, and piece of mind. You can always jump your trailers battery with your truck batteries, if needed.
Try Dry Camping, it might be just fun, and prepare you for that what if situation.
I rented a 30' class C for a week in Yellowstone several years ago. Obviously there were places where a passenger car could park that we couldn't, but we really had no problems finding a spot to pull over, no problems navigating the roads, no problems at all. I wouldn't think your 34' class A would be much different.
I've been to Yellowstone dozens of times in many vehicles. The best, imho, is in a pickup camper, as it's easy to pull over and have lunch by one of the many scenic spots and it's still easily maneuverable. A small camper would be the same. Larger MHs aren't quite as convenient, but it's doable. The park won't really be crowded until mid-June.
