Yellowstone NP in late May

Hi we are visiting from Australia & plan to visit Yellowstone NP in late May in a 31 ft R ( we pick up the RV near Chicago May 17th & drop off in Denver on June 2nd). I have read that the roads in Yellowstone may not all be cleared until Memorial Day. Is it likely that we could approach from Cody & see most of the main sites by then or will it be difficult to drive with such a large vehicle? Also would we need to book an RV site at that time? We may only have 2 full days & 3 nights there, so advice on what's best to see with the time constraint. Also how long would it take to get to Denver from Yellowstone if we wanted a quick look at Grand Teton on the way. We are considering a detour up east Michigan to UP Michigan on the way from Chicago & wonder if this is worth it as we will miss seeing Rocky Mt NP in Colorado. Unsure of what is best to see???

You have posted in the Wyoming MICHIGAN forum. You should be post in in the state of Wyoming forum or better yet the YNP Forum.


If you have questions related to the Michigan portion of your trip post them separately in the Michigan forum with a different subject line.

Post on the state of Wyoming forum, not on Michigan forum. I've been to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. Whey are you flying into Denver? It's a Long drive from Denver to Yellowstone. One of my family's favorite things was Rendevous Mountain in Jackson, WY.

Reporting as "wrong forum" to try to avoid future confusion since we now have two people over two years confusing Wyoming, Michigan with the state of Wyoming. Not even sure why we have a Wyoming, MI forum as all four posts in it were looking for the state of Wyoming.

I think we should advocate for the development of a Yellowstone Park in Wyoming Michigan. We could be sister parks with the National Park. A whole new level of confusion could be had!
