That was the only time we've ever camped without electricity and ever had to worry about the battery. There are only (I think) 2-3 campgrounds in Yellowstone/Grand Tetons that have electrical connections and all the rest do not. Generators had to be turned off by 8pm and they even made me shut my SUV off that I had idling to try and charge the battery since we had clouds that day. One strike after the other on that day.
Only one campground in Yellowstone NP has hookups, Fishing Bridge.
A dual battery setup is a minimum for anybody dry camping or boondocking.
Your SUV would've only provided a trickle charge, especially idling.
