KY to Yellowstone

Hello, We are starting to plan a big trip for next year, going from Kentucky to Yellowstone NP. Will be using our Fifth Wheel and was looking to get some info on must see stops along the way and areas that should be avoided. Think we will go in late may 2016. I have already been doing things to help prepare the old truck for the long haul. Thinking about going up by way of Saint Louis, Kansas City, Denver then up to Yellowstone. Coming back may be different, go the northern way.

Thanks Richard

Grand Teton National Park. It would be criminal to go to Yellowstone and not visit the Tetons. They are the most Stunning Mountains in North America.

Well if you are coming to Denver and then north, you are almost going right by Rocky Mountain NP. Couple nights there would be nice.

When going north get off I25 at Fort Collins and take 287 cutoff to I80. It is a good wide road, a lot of 18 wheelers use it.

Additionally, going there, i would hit RNMP as said above on way. On the way back, it would be easy to hit Devils tower, Mount Rushmore (and Custer SP) and then the Badlands.

I have driven there from here (Lexington, Ky), but not towing my RV. First day to Kansas City is a long one but stopped in Independence at the Truman Presidential Library. Headed NW from there diagonally across Nebraska's sand hills. Plenty of flat wide roads. Ended second day at the SD Badlands, definitely a site to see. Spent the third day at Mt. Rushmore and general area. Day four onto Yellowstone. I definitely will go back with the RV when we "part time".

I'll be following this thread closely because it is something I would like to do sometime down the road. We spent five days there in a cabin in 2008, during our PCS move to Fort Knox. Just for a guideline, we came out of the southern entrance though the Tetons, and then through Denver and KC.

Ok so we will be going in from the east northeast area would like options for going into Yellowstone and places to base camp, plan on staying in area around 3-4 days, site seeing then heading south into Tetons then down to Denver area and back to Kentucky. Would like to know roads to avoid with the camper and must sees along the way.
