Just moved up from a 19' to a 25' in order to accommodate our 5 small grandchildren. You can give them gifts that wear out or you can give them memories that last a life time. So we are heading to Rocky Mountain NP in June. Given their ages (5-11), we are making a stop at Jellystone outside of Estes Park for kid activities interspersed with hiking.

My wife and I are heading out for 30+ days, for our thirtieth anniversary trip, from the Toronto area through Michigan and Illinois, back into Canada, through the Western provinces and up the Alaska (AlCan) highway to Denali National Park and Preserve arriving on the longest day. Back down the center of BC to visit family in Vancouver and Penticton areas of BC and flying home in our new 2015 23FB cloud. Our first big trip with her. 😎

Of course! We're Airstreamers after all!

For me the missus and dog companion were in Olympic NP, Oregon coast, Redwood NP and Yosemite. I'm stoked already!

We're planning on going up 395, hitting up the big National Parks in CA, into Oregon and Washington, Idaho for the summer months. Then down into Utah and Colorado and let the cold push us south.

Two, a New England run to include Maine and back to Georgia for Spring. Then, an oval through Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and back home again in early Fall before doing all the regional weekend events to see Appalachian colors as the year closes.

We get to Devils Tower on the 10th and Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone on the 12th for four days then off to Creator Lake !
Looking forward to showing my kids what I saw as a 15 year old. Celebrating my 50th in May and what better way to enjoy than a good road trip ! Hope to see some of you out on the road.

We'll see you out there.

We will be in Yellowstone over the 4th of July. Look for the 22 Sport and the Big Red Tundra!

Anyone have any tips for Airstream camping in Yellowstone and the Tetons, such as campgrounds that are good, those to avoid?

We were close to you guys last winter (Borrego Springs) - perhaps we cross paths in Utah in the fall...

We were there last year.
I don't know when you're planning to go, but the season is rather short at Yellowstone. This site will tell you the dates the campgrounds are open: https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm If you want to camp in the park, I would recommend a reservation made ASAP for one of the CGs that takes reservations, as the park is so popular and the first-come first-served CGs tend to fill up very early in the morning. I think the Mammoth Hot Springs CG is less busy than most, but it is further away from most of the main thermal features.

We've also stayed at the Grizzly RV park in West Yellowstone. Expensive, but close to the park in a RV resort atmosphere.

The locals and regulars will hopefully tell you about US Forest Service CGs in the area.

Just try to start your sight-seeing early in the day, as the main thermal features and Yellowstone falls attract hordes of visitors as the day wears on, and parking can be troublesome.

Info on camping in Grand Teton NP is here: https://www.nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/camping.htm Apparently the Colter Bay CG (not the Colter Bay RV park) usually has space if you get there early in the afternoon.

We are planning on heading from Tulsa OK to Santa Fe, Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree, Yosemite, Vegas, Zion, Denver then back home...5-6 weeks or so....This will be our longest family vacation yet. I'll be working remote for most of it. We're pretty excited about it.
