Trip out West, question on roads and camping suggestions


Recommended Posts

We are taking a fall road trip from MN to Boise, ID in September. Just wondering about the roads for a large 40' MH with a toad. We plan to go west into Yellowstone park on Wyoming 14/16 from Cody and then head south on 191 towards Jackson and then west again on #26 into Idaho. Does anybody know if this route is safe to make with a large motorhome? If not, suggestions on alternate routes thru that area. Also, any suggestions on camping for a big rig in and around Yellowstone park and Jackson, WY areas. Hopefully the snow isn't flying yet in September!!! Thanks for any input you can give folks!

Your route poses no problems. We've been to Yellowstone a few times in September and had gorgeous fall weather. Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone has some sites up to 40'. Otherwise I'd suggest West Yellowstone for your stay. There are many options from full-hookup to dry forest service campgrounds (Baker's Hole is a favorite of ours about 2 mi N of town). There are also state parks where your 40' would fit.


Cody is a nice place to visit but we feel it's too long of a drive to spend days touring Yellowstone.


Colter Bay RV in Grand Teton Nat'l Park is good. We like the two dry campgrounds in the park - Gros Ventre which is closer to the town of Jackson and Colter Bay campground which is next door to the RV park. The town of Jackson's RV parks are expensive and just a parking lot.


For Boise, Ambassader RV in nearby Caldwell is a winner! Big pull-throughs with manicured grass between them, a clean clubhouse, pool, spa, laundry.


Have a good trip.

We agree with some of the campground suggestions but you do need to understand that it will be an unusual September if no snow at all falls in the park during the month. Traveling US26 is a good road but it is two lane and you will have some mountain driving. There are not many places that you can go in that part of the country that do not have mountain driving at times. ;)
