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.

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.

We are going to Yellowstone and will be working in one of the stores for a couple of months. A friend of ours told us about the opportunity. Over 50% of the seasonal help are seniors. A full hookup RV spot is provided for a small monthly fee. We'll be at Old Faithful. This seems like a great opportunity to spend some time in a beautiful place.Edited by: artgpo

My parents did the Workamper thing at Yellowstone a couple of years ago and had the time of their lives. They had enough time off to really explore the parkyet still covered their expenses while working.

When we went to Yellowstone a couple of years ago it was in late June. The EastYellowstone Bison herd was migrating/gathering in a meadow near Yellowstone falls and it was incredible to see. We were stopped on the road ashundreds of Bison came out of the forest, swam across the river and crossed the road. They were passing on either side of our truck while our kids watched out the windows. We took hundreds of photos that afternoon...

The KOA in Jackson Hole is really a pretty campground. Get your reservations in early. Explore Teton and Jackson Hole for a few days and then camp over on the Idaho or Montana side and explore Yellowstone from there. You will not be disappointed.....

Stayed in the town of West Yellowstone just 1/2 mile from west ent. to park. We are senior and have the Park Pass so going in and out was ok as we did not have to pay. Nice little town with lots of shops etc. CG had full hook ups and was very clean. You will do a lot of driving to see everything but well worth the time. Spent 6 days in Yellowstone the second week of July 2009. Have fun.

Make sure while you are there, you make it over to Island Park, Idaho for some world class Trout fishing. There are plenty of CG with hookups in that area, and it is only about 45 min from the park. I grew up about 3 hours from the park and spent a lot of summers in Island Park and Yellowstone, and I have seen it snow there in July ! It is very beautiful country and I wish I still lived closer so I could enjoy it more often!

Enjoy your trip, and remember "Do not laugh at the natives"
