Hello. We are considering a 5 day, 4 night trip to Yellowstone in mid or late October. Sounds like the crowds will be gone, but many facilities will be closed--that's ok with us (unless--is there anything truely amazing we'll miss? I know...it's all amazing :-) Are snow storms a concern this time of year?
We will likely fly into Jackson and I'd love to rent an RV and stay in the park (our campground options are Madison, Mammoth & Sloth Creek). Otherwise it looks like the only park hotel optin is Old Faithful Snow Lodge. Or we could stay at a hotel in West Yellowstone. My husband is altitude sensitive, so trying to stay as low as possible. Any thoughts on lodging? (we are budget conscious)
I'm considering renting a hitch trailer with Jackson Hole RV Adventures, but they said it may be winterized by then (ie, no shower!). Are there any year-round showers in Yellowstone? Are RV dumping & water facilities still open in the park or West Yellowstone thru October?
Any suggestions for our trip would be most apperciated!!!
