We have been to YNP 5 times, first in 2005 last 2016. My favorite park hands down , after the last visit, not so much for DH. Each visit has been arriving second week in September with a 2 week stay. I am asking for a return trip in 2019 for my birthday. DH has acquiesced reluctantly.
The crowds the last 2 trips were jaw dropping compared to years past. My question is if we wait until first 2weeks in October will there be a significant difference? I know it will never be light, maybe lighter. Opinions please.
Thank you,
Sherry

A Fall or early Winter trip to Yellowstone will be wonderful change from what you have already experienced.

September crowds are still a lot less than those during the summer, so just tell DH you're being nice by not insisting on a summer trip!

Yes, one can go in October and there will be fewer people. But as noted, snow is not to be unexpected. I see you are from LA. Make sure your rig is adequately prepared for below freezing temps at night. Think teens or 20's.

Besides the weather, I think the biggest downside to such a late excursion is that the leaves have all changed and have fallen. Upsides include fewer people and a better chance to see more wildlife.

We stayed at the Lodge (not camping) in mid-October years ago. It was the last week before they closed for the season. The fall weather was gorgeous and the mood with all of the staff was like a carnival before they ended their season. I would absolutely go back at that time.

Was there 3 years ago. We had reservations for Grant CG 2nd week of Oct and there was a long line of ppl trying to get in without reservations. We had 2 inches of snow last few days the CG was open.
