We made the trip from Grizzly to Colter bay last September, there were some grades but don't remember a problem. I was in a 36' motorhome pulling a toad. Great Trip! Enjoy!!

Is it pretty easy to get a spot in Colter Bay campground for a 35ft fifth wheel?

If you’re talking about the Colter Bay Campground with 335 basic sites and operated by the NPS you probably won’t have too much trouble getting a campsite.

If you’re talking about the Colter Bay RV Park with full hookups (112 sites) and operated by the Grand Teton Lodge Company then yes, you will need to make reservations. This campground has a laundry and camp store.

Those two campgrounds are right next to each other and both have sites big enough for your rig.

Because of the time of day we need to travel, we were are going from Grizzy to Colter Bay via 20->32->33->191. I have read about some "grades" on this route but not too bad.

Lbjet,
You win... After finally getting to Yellowstone and only seeing some 6% (which were fine...), I'm not sure I would be fine with 10% grades. We are adjusting our times to leave early in the morning to go threw yellowstone when we go down to colter bay.
Safe camping...:thumbup:

We made the same drive last July and didn't even have to stop. Luck of the draw on whether you hit a Buffalo jam or two. Enjoy your time in Yellowstone.

Just curios, what time did you go thru? I know it's subject to change.

Although we didn't come from Grizzly, we just came through East entrance, went to old faithful, and traveled down through the Tetons on our way to Bear Lake. Had 2 Georgetowns with toads, and a 1/2 ton gasser pulling a 24' TT. Didn't have any problems. The biggest thing to watch for, are the class C's from RentRV.
