We had our first RV trip last March we're hooked. After a slow start getting used to driving the RV we had a fantastic holiday. I'm planning a trip next May leaving from Denver and heading up through the Rocky Mountain NP, Custer State Park, Bighorn Canyon and Yellowstone. Then south through Utah to Moab, Mesa Verde and Durango before returning to Denver. I'd like to know what Yellowstone will be like in late May. I've heard it can get pretty busy. Should I book a campground in advance or just turn up? Also, we've planned an 18 day vacation and don't mind a couple of days of hard driving. Is it realistic to think we can include Glacier NP in the trip?

Thanks in advance.

We were in Yellowstone in mid June about 10 years ago (before we started RVing) and it was not very crowded at all. However, I am referring to the roads and attractions. Since we weren't camping I cannot say if the campgrounds were booked or not. The last weekend we were there it began to get a bit more crowded. That same year my in-laws worked there and arrived at the park the first of May. They had to plow snow out of their RV site before they could pull in.

We were also in the Rocky Mtns. in another June. We were able to drive the Trail Ridge Road, but it had just opened a few days before. There was still lots of snow that high up.

It sounds like you want to pack in as much as you can while you are here. I can understand that if you think you may not get back this way again, but believe me you have quite an ambitious schedule. Like Jerry said do some research and be prepared to make adjustments if needed. You have certainly picked some spectacular areas. You could spend the full 18 days in any ONE of them. Hope you have a good time, and let us know if you need more help.
