What are your Yellowstone plans?

So about ten days before we go and wondering for you hard core trip planners what the day by day plans are?

Recently went to Yellowstone. Camped at yellowstone Bible Camp where the wife's family rented the campground near Pray MT.
This was the day we left near Firehole Lake.

With the "Grands" in tow it'll be day by day planning most likely with exception of special "Dining Out" nights such as The Old Faithful Inn for which reservations were made weeks ago. Most likely we'll do the loop drives for seeing the standard sights, a little hiking, canoeing etc.. The kids are fired up and watching a Yellowstone DVD along with reading all about the parks.

It'll be August for us. Have a great time and take a jacket as it'll be colder than Texas! We nearly froze in Red Lodge, MT one trip up to Yellowstone on July 4th. Have a great trip.

We're also of thinking to heading out there in August. Although we are late making reservations. Checked on one place they could get us in after the 10th. yeow its filling up. Glad to see a thread or two on yellowstone. Theres four of us in a '08 27FB Intl. Did black Hills last year for 10 days was best trip ever. Stayed in one localized spot and worked perfect. Kinda nervous about what kind of mountainous driving wed have to deal with. 08 tundra 5.7 has been treating us well so far.

Arriving Grand Tetons on the 9th and Yellowstone on the 13th so will keep an eye out for more bauxite in the parks. Can't wait.

We stayed at the Madison Arm RV Resort in West Yellowstone last year in mid-July. When we pulled out, there were lots of empty spots; and the owners said that the season starts to slow down after the July 4th rush. There should be plenty of spots (at least at the Madison Arm) the week after the 4th.

Fire in Yellowstone

Sounds like the East route is closed due to fire. Smokey skies. Hope it clears up!

black hills

hey rich, for black hills we stayed at the rafter j bar ranch in hill city. it was just the ticket for us. many loops of sites and little cabins. full service hook ups. we were on the end so no neighbors on three sides. lots of trees and open space. every night deer would come and eat grass while we ate dinner. My kids chased them one night but they kept coming back. Nice pool. Pancake breakfast every day. Nice and quiet. Great views. Good luck!

Am I glad I stumbled onto this thread! We may be heading Yellowstone way in August. Since this will be our first time in this part of the country, the info in this thread will be VERY helpful in planning our trip.

Am planning on staying at Sinks State Park on the way to the Grand Tetons since it's a close drive from there of a few hours. Will post more info on this thread as to conditions, discoveries, etc. Given we will be in the park over the 4th of July so it will be packed out I'm sure and not so much like it would be in August or later.
