You will be commuting to the park in a lot of traffic.

Stay at W. Yellowstone.
Get up before dawn and hit the park at first light. The park starts to get crowded about 10 am.

Last June we did several days leaving the trailer in W Yellowstone, and driving in.
+1 to all above.

There is beauty and wonder in every foot of the park! Don't hurry, enjoy where you are while going somewhere just as great.

We were there this past summer and rather than deal with driving, parking, timing, etc. we elected to take advantage of the pros: Yellowstone Vacations tours - they use a 24 passenger bus and get you to all the major stops in an all-day excursion. We got to Yellowstone Falls in time to see the rainbow at the foot of the Falls, and got to Old Faithful just before it erupted. We also had the added attraction of seeing Beehive Guyser erupt right before Old Faithful. You board their bus in West Yellowstone at 8:00 am and return to their garage around 4:00 pm - if you're staying in West Yellowstone they will pick you up and drop you off.

Think it is Definitely the Schedule that is the issue - Some 30+ years ago on a trip with the boys and one cousin "Schedule" had 4 days to do the 2200 miles back - we started out of Yellowstone to head Home at 8 in the AM - only to spend the entire day checking on all the spots we had Missed earlier in the week - so around 8 that PM we had made it to Cody - Being young and trying to stick to the Schedule we (I) continued driving East - This was before the Forum and all the shared info - so straight across RT 14 we went, full Moon and all so we had some idea what we were missing think it was around 2 in the AM we started down the far side of the Big Horns to see the Northern Lights - OMG - Beautiful - Thanks Goodness for No Schedule - didn't wake the Boys and are reminded every year, that they Missed It.

So Moral of the story - you can't see it all - Period. Do as much as you can and You will LOVE IT, Nature at it's Best.

8 Days later we arrived home having see Oh So much more than we had "Scheduled". - [emoticon]

No question the Grizzly rv park in west yellowstone is the very best around and its only probably less than a mile from the entrance and down to Old Faithful should only take about 30' providing you don't encounter a crowd watching Bisons or some other wildlife. The Rocky Mtn park over the Roosevelt gate is a nice park but its not Grizzly and its much further away from the Old Faithful site. Besides being a very nice RV park just outside Grizzly in the town of west yellowstone you have many eateries, and other accomodations that you find in most towns except there is no Walmart around there. You cannot go wrong with Grizzly in my opinion having visited the area some five times over the years.

That's an excellent suggestion! YNP is one of our fav's & we were just there again in late Sept. Got out just before a decent snow fell. I always seen to be the designated driver. Drive days in the park can be long and taxing on my eye's not to mention driving is not sightseeing. Group camping next to us @ Grizzly had done that tour & raved about it. I might give it a whirl next visit just to let someone else do all the driving.

The best is Grizzly in West Yellowstone; there are other nice ones in West Yellowstone. It's about a 30 minute drive depending on what animals show up along the way.


X2 on Grizzly campground. It's only a short distance to the West entrance. Very nice facilities.
