Let's keep this going and maybe get a few interested enough to make the trip and we can have a small get together.
Thank you

Since I host a fireworks display every year on the 4th I can’t possibly make it to Yellowstone in your time frame. Have a great time John.

Here’s a photo of the Crows Nest on the top floor of the Old Faithful Inn. An earthquake damaged it in 1959 so it was closed to the public. I heard that the NPS was going to make repairs to it, but I don’t know if that ever came about.

Just received my confirmation from Grizzly Campground for the week of the 4th of July. So things are a go!
Now we just wait 7 months.

Slight thread hijacking...

We, too, are planning a Yellowstone trip for next summer. Probably the last 3 weeks in June (there is a slight chance it would be the first 3 weeks). We are driving in from Ohio.

Our current "plan" (changes daily as I read/learn more)...
  • Drive 2 "very long" days to reach Badlands
  • Spend 2 nights (1.5 days) in Badlands (possibly dry camping)
  • Drive to Black Hills
  • Spend 3-4 nights in Black Hills (hook-ups)
  • Visit Devil's tower (<-- Not sure how we'll squeeze this one in)
  • Drive to "somewhere" just outside of Yellowstone (North entrance? East Entrance? Northeast Entrance?) for 1 night
  • Drive to Yellowstone's Canyon CG, spend 4-5 nights (dry camping), touring Northern third/half of Yellowstone
  • Drive down to Flagg Ranch (or someplace else with hook-ups), spend 4-5 nights, touring Southern Half/Third of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons.
  • Drive home via Colorado (2-3 nights).
For non-travel days, our goal is to getup/out early, each picnic lunch, and return to our camper around dinner. I want to make sure we have plenty of downtime each day otherwise we could get burned out and grumpy.

My biggest concern is everyone keeps telling me that Black Hills is "great" and you won't want leave.

The DW and I also plan to make the trip this coming summer. We will be driving up from Louisiana in our Solera. It is 27.5 feet long. This will be our only way to get around. Is this going to be a problem???? We are thinking of going in late July and august. Plan to make the whole trip in about 3 weeks or just over. I work 28 days on and 28 days off. Hoping to see Mount Rushmore then head to Yellowstone and then drive down through Jackson Hole before heading home.

BackInAction,

I like your plans. I might have to copy & paste them into my itenerary! I made a quick trip through the Black Hills & Rushmore a few years ago when I drove my parents to CA from KY. I could have just stayed there! Beautiful country and something for everyone that enjoys the outdoors.

BUT...

I said the same thing about Utah when we visited this year!

This is a great thread!
We are going the first two weeks of August 2012.
We are cheating... we are flying to Cody then renting a car. Staying 10 days - Canyon Lodge, Old Faithful Lodge, Lake Lodge...

Figured it was easier then sharing the road with the bike heading to South Dakota.

Would we need to rent a car for Yellowstone or can we get around in Solera motorhome. Looks like we will be leaving Louisana last weekend in June. So we will make it to Yellowstone mid July.
