We have been there twice in late August and this seems to be a good time to go if crowds are an issue for you. However it will still be very busy!! The only thing about late summer is the forest or brush fires that get started in dry seasons and burn for weeks. The magnificant views will be ruined and the whole experience is less than what it could be. On all two of our 3 western adventures smoke was an issue and in 2000 we were turned back from heading to Glacier so spent more time in Yellowstone. So stay informed of the forest fires and be aware it can be an issue not only for your safety but also your view!!

We were there opening weekend the last week in April and it was awesome! Just about had the place to ourselves. Not all roads were open but there was plenty to see and do.

I agree with all that was posted previous.
We were there the first part of Sept. Not crowded at all. It could be a little cool in the morning, but all in all we thought it was a nice time to be there.

I am planning to go in late June ... I am a little worried abut the snow over going later in the summer. Places to stay in Jackson Hole and thinking about staying in West Yellowstone (need the hook ups) and that seems to closer to the Ole faithful. I am still watching of places to visit in the area of that three state area.

You have to remember that Yellowstone only has two seasons, Winter and July. We were there in mid August last summer and got snowed going over one of higher passes.It wasn't sticking but it was coming down pretty hard. The weather was wet and chilly while we were there, and of course it was clear and sunny and 70 the day we were leaving. We still had a great time, just make sure you take some wet and cold weather gear.

Also, if you need hookups there is a RV park in the park at Fishing Bridge that has hookups. (Get your reservations early...)

We were there in July last year the traffic and road construction was very time consuming,but we really thought it was a great place to visit. We stayed at Yellowstone Edge Camp Ground north of Gardner,and we would recomend it highly.
