Tetons in July

Thinking of heading out to see the Tetons & Yellowstone Pk In.July(the wife myself & 2 children ages 15 & 5) We will have 2 weeks for our 4K mile round trip from La.(gas = $800-$1000 bucks)That being said I am looking for some where to stay that want cost me an arm and a leg close to Jackson Hole & YNP.I plan on being out & about most of the time so it doesn't have to be too fancy.If I could find a hotel...motel...cabin for around $100 bucks or less that would offset the cost of fuel .I plan on stoping for a couple of days around Estes Park than on to the Tetons & YNP area for 5 or 6 days than to Cody for a couple of days....Thanks

You can check out my review of the Snake River KOA Kabins. All you get is a cabin with some beds in it. The showers are shared, but they are clean. it is under your budget. The big drawback -- it seems to me -- is that it is about 10 miles to Jackson and -- from Jackson -- several more miles into the Grand Tetons (depending on your destination in the Tetons).

Not sure if you are on your way yet- One place is not really good for YNP and Tetons. Late for reservations, but I see things open every day. Budget wise, Look for openings in YNP at Old Faithful Lodge Budget Cabins. You could also try for Rooselvelt Rough Rider Cabin.

You are a little late, but especially in Yellowstone, cancellations open up if you can call or access internet. Jackson will not be in your budget as the most affordable motel 6 is over $100 a night during this time of year. I wuold not stay S of Jackson.

In GTNP, you can stay in the Colter Bay Cabins or Tent Cabins under $100 a night. I cannot think of anything else under $100 but you can check out GTLC.com for information.

In YNP, the Rooselvelt, Lake Lodge Frontier, Canyon Lodge Frontier Cabins and Old Faithful Lodge Budget cabins are under $100. Some do not have bathrooms, but a shared one is nearby and it would mean sharing 2 double beds for each 2 people.

If you are driving up, have you thought about camping for at least some of the time? That will offset your costs.
