Hello,
Planning a trip pulling our 35' 5th wheel from Indiana to Rapid City, SD then on to Yellowstone. From Yellowstone we also want to take in the Tetons and Jackson. In route planning, I am wondering about getting from Rapid City into Yellowstone. Thought about staying at West Yellowstone but curious about other entrances and campgrounds we might be able to get into from the east side. Preferred campgrounds would have at least sewer and water.

take 90 over to Buffalo WY and then take 16 over the Bighorns, then north and west to Cody and west to Yellowstone. Take the route across the park if you want to go to West Yellowstone. All good roads, but don't be surprised by road work in some places.
Buffalo has a couple nice rv parks if you're ready to quit at that time
Over the mountains, there is a nice rv park on the west side of Ten Sleep, very shady and laid out nice.
Up at Cody, there is the Ponderosa RV park on the west side of town, just down the street from the really great Buffalo Bill Museum of the West.
Or, out of town about 7 miles, there is Buffalo Bill State Park.
Or, further out, there is Wapiti Campground (gov) and further on, Rex Hale campround (gov) We have stayed at all of them and have no complaints. the gov camps do not have hookups.
Bon Voyage!

We have done the 16 route over the Big Horns to Cody and it is a beautiful trip coming over. Little steep in a couple of areas, especially where the switchbacks start going down into the canyon.
We have also run I-90 to Livingston and taken 89 into the park through Gardiner. Again curvy and a bit steep as you come into the park.
I-90 to Bozeman and down 191 into the Park at W Yellowstone is our first route ever there. We still prefer that route if we a just touring around that part of the country. Seemed to have seen more animals there (wife loves wild life) coming into the Park this way.
