RV RENTAL: GOOD TO KNOW
– We rented an RV for ten days through www.cruiseamerica.com, starting from Salt Lake City.
– We rented a 30 feet RV for our family of 5. The size was perfect. I would not have taken a bigger one as most of the campsites accept
no RV bigger than 30 feet.
GOOD TO KNOW
Yellowstone can be cold in August. Don’t forget sweaters and jumpers. The nights are really cold.
Make sure you always go to the visitor center. They will help you with your hiking trails. Don’t forget to take their Junior Rangers Books for your kids.
Foresee enough water when you are hiking. Bring good hiking shoes as well as a backpack. This is important to plan in your holiday luggage.
In Yellowstone, almost all campgrounds do not have laundry and shower facilities.
Your time on the road can vary dramatically as you will very often meet a herd of bison.
On stop 4 from Grand Teton to Yellowstone Madison, I will suggest to make it as a day trip as there is a lot of sights on the way.
Make sure you plan ahead your menus while shopping before entering into the National Parks. You will only find the basics in the grocery stores of the park.
Check also this website that provides tips for saving on your next vacation to a National Park: list of fee free days, off season dates and lodging tips.
If you want to avoid peak periods, it is recommended to plan this trip either in May/June or September/October.
