Len and Jeanne,
Denver does have some very heaving traffic. But they have added a new tollway belt line highway around the city. I would suggest that, no matter what the cost, as it has hardly any traffic. We were in Denver last week visiting DD, and I-25 has a LOT of road construction going on right now.

You don't have to stop and pay a toll. Big brother cameras scan your license plate and you get a bill in the mail.

I wonder if they will accept a photo of some cash for payment! This road is the best way to bypass Denver.

Yes, indeed it is. It's a good road. There's lots to see as you go through the South Pass area, especially on the west, or Pacific side. Several good roadside information kiosks explaining all the history that passed through the area. There are also two historic towns (sad to say off the pavement on gravel roads), South Pass City and Atlantic City, restored and run by the National Park Service. As a treat, you get to skirt the Wind Rivers just to the north (the highway easily climbs to over 8,000 feet and you don't even know it) and then have them at your side as you drive up toward Pinedale.

If you don't have one, pick up one of the official Wyoming state highway maps along the way. This has been one of the most informative state highway maps for over forty years. Very well annotated with historical points, all the historic trails that passed through the state, and beautiful shaded relief so you can visualize what you are driving through.

If you go through Rawlins you might want to find the old state pen (Wyoming parceled out its various state institutions to small towns around the state--that's why the prison landed in Rawlins.) where Butch Cassidy spent some time for robbing the Union Pacific. The old prison--not the new one--is right in the residential area of the town, on Walnut Street just west of 6th Street, just a few blocks west of Highway 287 (not the bypass) as it passes through town. There is also a really good and quick Thai restaurant (advertised along the freeway coming into town) downtown if you are so inclined.

Once you get off I-80 in both Wyoming and Nebraska the country gets very interesting. Any route you take on your drive to Yellowstone will reward you. Yellowstone and the Tetons are just the jewels in the crown.

I would like some opinions on which entrance to go into the park. We were originally thinking of going in from Rawins, Wy. and then to Colter Bay and then to Yellowstone. That would be the south entrance? Or going in from Cody, Wy. and into the east entrance. Any thoughts would be appreciated. We were thinking of a few nights in Colter Bay and then to Grant Village, if we can get in, and then to West Yellowstone to Wagon Wheel, Rustic Wagon, or Grizzly Park.
If we go in through the East entrance, I am not where we would stay or if that would be the best route.
Again, any thoughts would be valued.

Rick

I just did a trip to Yellowstone and Tetons this (early) summer. The Tetons were the surprise hit that I LOVED. Tetons have something like 950 campsites and none are reservable, but I've heard it hardly ever fills up.

The Tetons are nice, that's for sure, but the drive from the Tetons up into Yellowstone is very boring. You'd be be better off to go from the Tetons over the mountains into Idaho; go through Swan Valley the back way north to Ashton, Idaho, then up to Mesa Falls and Island Park. Then go into Yellowstone via West Yellowstone, Montana. While you are in the area, go see Quake Lake; great camping and fishing along the Madison River.

Hi Bk Yd Safari,
We are heading out to this area next year and liked your route suggestions.

Any campground suggestions for the route you described?

Thanks,
Tom & Deborah

Best Route To Yellowstone

There are at least three Airstreams at the South Entrance (Flagg Ranch) today, but they are leaving tomorrow. We came in East Entrance from Cody with no problem. The others came in through Casper.

American Creek, Chamberlain, SD...on the shores of the Missouri River
Hart Ranch, Rpaid City, SD...this is a member rv park, but if you take a sales tour (very low key) you can stay for a few days
Riverside Oasis, Moab, UT...sites were tight, but a nice campground very near the entrance to Arches National Park
Gouldings Resort, Monument Valley, UT..great location, be sure to try the Navajo Tacos in the lodge restaurant..again tight (I had to back-out of a pull-thru) but would definately stay again...get up early and watch the sunrise
Alpen Rose, Durango, CO...really nice park on the north side of town
Tom Sawyer, West Memphis, AR...nice park on the banks of the Missippi River, with views of the Memphis skyline...be sure to get a premium site on the front row along the river
Two Rivers, Nashville, TN...this park is located about a 1/2 mile from the Opryland Hotel

If you come up to Lincoln check out the SAC aircraft museum at Mahoney State Park (a GREAT RV park) just north of Lincoln about 20 miles. Then for a beautiful, leisurely drive, take Nebraska #2 diagonally across the state. At Alliance go north to Fort Robinson at the south edge of the Black Hills (very nice RV park). Take US 20 through Casper, Riverton & on in to Jackson. I like this route through the Nebraska sand hills - not nearly as boring as the interstate!

The Colter Bay CG in the Tetons NP is first-come first-serve, but it is huge and apparently seldom fills up.
