I understand that in mid-Oct. when we'll be in Yellowstone and Tetons (if the weather is OK, otherwise we'll bypass them) Madison Campground in Yellowstone is still open and supposed to be OK for large motorhomes. Can people give me personal experience about this? When we've been by it before, it looked like there were a lot of trees that might be a problem.
Also, I see that Gros Ventre in the Tetons is open until mid-Oct. (Oct. 15 it says), so would like personal experience for big rigs there, too.
We'll be traveling in a 40' motorhome towing a Jeep.
Hi. We stayed just outside of the southern Yellowstone gate last year in a 34' class A. I think it was the Grand Teton park, and all went well. The couple across from us had a 40' pusher, and he was OK. My only problem w/ these parks is the fact that they HATE to cut back any branches on the trees, and....well you can guess the rest. SO, if you value the paint job on your coach, BEWARE ! I think that the parks in Yellowstone are dry camp, w/ even more trees. Also, you can pretty much forget your sat. reception. Trees, trees, trees !!! As always, hope this helps. L8R
