Happy camping !
We will be at Yellowstone from June 17 - 24 so looks like we will be there the same time. I'll look for you in the campground. We are pulling a tan colored Surveyor Select and pulling it with a Toyota Tundra tow vehicle.

Excellent ! We have a work and play,pulled by a f350,that whistles almost like a small jet,I will try very hard not to offend other campers with it, won't leave late at night,and will try to wait till,at least,7 am before starting it.
I am curious as to the turbos effect on the wildlife at Custer state park,may make the bison stay away,or they may be angered by it. Bison head print in side of truck would be......ah,bad,but also,one heck of a conversation picture ! Lol

Grizzly Campground has plenty to do and the kids all get together on the large grassy field and play. Playground and secure.
Here is a few pics of the campground

Iggy, looks like a very nice and well kept campground. Maybe I should have stayed there for a little extra money.

Thanks, Ron

If it's not out of line, fishing, is this pic from a charter ? If so,how much $ was it ? Really want to catch n cook some fish while on trip. I imagine we stand a better chance of catching some,with a charter capt.

Great pics !

Ty

There is a turnpike (toll) around Denver. Not cheap but worth avoiding Denver traffic. We laugh about it now, when we hit the toll gate and it was a couple dollars..... wow what a great deal! Then another toll and another..... still a good deal.
If you spend anytime in the Black Hills, go to Hill City and have steak at the Alpine Inn...... go early .... supper only... no reservations. bread pudding ... to die for. Filet Mignon Steak only large or small .... used to be under $10 for the large.
If you don't mind boondocking a night or two.... Lake Pactola (June 75-80 degrees in the day) has a great park... federal I believe. The marina is run by great people and they have a small store with fantastic fried chicken.
Go to Deadwood and visit the Midnight Star Casino. Owned by Kevin Costner. He fell in love with the Black Hills when he made Dances with Wolves. The sports bar upstairs has good food and all the outfits he wore in all the movies he made are displayed on the walls. Lots to see in Black Hills do your homework.
Get some Black Hills Gold .... very unique. We first went there 20 years ago and have gone back many times. The area is rich in early American History. Don't miss Crazy Horse monument. We finally went into the park 2-3 years ago in June. They do rock blasting 2 times a year. We were lucky to be there for a night time demolition. It was worth the time.
I could go on....

Yes, charter boat, think it was about $200 half day, caught a limit out of colter bay village, Jackson lake. Awesome campground!

So many things to do but I will put them on my list and will do as many as I can. Have already done a couple like Crazy Horse and Deadwood.

Thanks, Ron
