where to stay

We are full timers now and planning to go West in the Spring. I am having difficulty finding a suitable campground near both Glacier Park and Yellowstone. Since we have dogs that love to hiking with us we particularly prefer places within 1/2 hour drive of National Forest land. Also, I have a high preferenece for full hook-ups, and, if possible, pull thru availalbility. Does anyone out there have recommendations for the Glacier and Yellowstone vicinities for monthlong stays in each place? We are trying hard to avoid boondocking. We have a 35' TT.
Thanks for your help in advance.

A couple of years ago we stayed at the Yellowstone Valley INN in Wapiti; which is on state rout 14, 16 and 20. This is about 15 miles from the east entrance into Yellowstone. They have full hook-ups and pull thru sites at reasonable prices. I have attached their web site link for you.

There used to be a KOA just outside the west entrance to Glacier National Park. Stayed there in the camp cabins 15 years ago.

There are quite a number of them near both parks. Both trailer life and internet should show them. With two dogs, be sure to be with them and under their control. There are animals out there who would consider them as dinner. They're beautiful and unique places that are very different. You'll love the trip.

If you want hookups, for YNP, Grizzly in West Yellowstone gets the most recommendations.
For West Glacier, Mountain Meadows gets high marks.

I just read my post and goofed: it'll probably be better if your dogs are under your control rather than the way I stated it ��. I guess I'm so used to my pup running the house I forgot. Those two campgrounds mentioned are good in our experience too. You may want to get your reservations in fairly early..

We really liked West Yellowstone KOA.



Johnson's in St. Mary is basic, but has a beautiful view. http://johnsonsofstmary.squarespace.com/




West Glacier KOA is also very nice.
