Probably another winter storm or two before spring sets in for good, but things are definitely melting in the valleys.

Great video and pics. I'll be back there in 4 months and the time can't go by fast enough. You had some amazing sights.



Thanks, TeeJay! I know what it's like to count the days until you go. I'm sure there are a lot of us going through that right now!

I've posted a lot of photos from my trip last year, but I also shot a few timelapse sequences along with some video. I put it all together in this video. C&C welcome!

If you arrive before April 28, the day Madison opens, Mammoth will be the only campground open. It may be more difficult to get in. If you are tent camping, your options will be greater. Try and avoid arriving on the weekend and get to the campground early in the morning.

This is an up-to-the-minute webpage for filling times for the park campgrounds including Mammoth. It will show you what time it filled, if it did fill, and you can get an idea what your chances will be as the time gets closer.

Good luck.

Bill, thank you very much for the detailed reply.

I live in Saskatoon, Canada. I am planning on driving to YS at the end of April for about a week. When I was in YS in May 2016, I stayed at Madison Campground. I don't want to do that again this year, as the hike from the camp ground to Lamar Valley was too long and I could never get there for sunrise (unless I drove in the dark, which I didn't fancy after seeing the driver in front of me almost have a bison jump onto his hood). So I have decided to camp at Mammoth Hot Springs Campground this time.

The first question is if I will be likely to get a spot there at this time of the year? As the campground is non-reservable one, I am not sure if I might be stuck without a place to sleep.

A major consideration will be what's open and what part of the park you want to see. Here is a list of the opening dates for the roads. Don't know where you want to stay when you're there but the earlier you go the less choice you have as to accommodations. It seems it was a pretty heavy snow year so figure Hayden Valley, the Lake District and Canyon will be difficult areas to hike in, especially in April and early May.

2017 Spring Road Opening Dates

April 21: Mammoth to Old Faithful; Madison to West Entrance; Norris to Canyon.
May 5: Canyon Junction to Lake; Lake to East Entrance (Sylvan Pass).
May 12: Lake to West Thumb, West Thumb to Old Faithful (Craig Pass), and South Entrance to West Thumb; Tower Junction to Tower Fall.
May 26: Tower Fall to Canyon Junction (Dunraven Pass)
May 26: Beartooth Highway

Hello Everybody,

It is that time of the year when the urge to make the big trip to Yellowstone takes over. But before I do that I am seeking feedback from those more experienced than me if it is the right time to be in YS ( I do realize that there is no wrong or right time!). Las t time I was there was in the second week of May, so this time I am planning on going there towards the end of April/beginning May.

Please let me know if this is a good idea or if I might be better off going a bit later.

Regards
AJ

Thanks! A lot youtube folks have been asking me to make a pure bison video - so I might have to. I have one video that is being played in a doctor's office every day on a loop with a few others so perhaps I should. See some of you again in May!
