Re: Camping near Cooke City

Thanks Yellvet, I have had a change of plans on my dates. I have to move from June until Sept. I had great luck with all my reservations stops just switching forward and even came out better in Yellowstone as I was able to get in Canyon CG. I am still stopping outside the NE entrance for at least th...

Re: Camping advice

I ran into the same problem on the NF campgrounds along the Beartooth as you will. They are not open that early. Great camping but just too early. That's how I ran across Big Moose Resort.

Re: Camping advice

Like you, I have camped in Yellowstone quite a few times and have never had reservations except our first trip at Fishing Bridge. We have always just arrived early and always gotten a site. Only once I was tent camping, which gives you the best chance, otherwise I was in a small motorhome Of course ...

Re: Camping near Cooke City

Thanks, it will be about June 12th. Soda Butte and the other campgrounds around Cooke City are saying opening is July 1 so I'm hoping I can just disperse camp. Got all I need for it. I have backup reservations in the park but not where I need them for the northern half. Heading toward the park would...

Camping near Cooke City

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience about dispersed camping around Cooke City? I will be in the area before the FS campgrounds open and would like to be as close to Lamar Valley as possible. I do have a hard sided camper.

Re: Vacation ideas

If You don't mind the return trip the Canadian Rockies and surrounding parks are hard to beat for scenery and wild life. I drive everywhere but if you are flying Calgary is a great hub. Another great route is to start in Olympic NP and work your way down the coast including Crater Lake, Redwood NP a...

Re: Snowmobile Trip

Not sure how far you are traveling but I would snowmobile as many days as possible as your flight is a big part of your cost. We usually sled four days with one in the middle to just shop, rest and look around. If you go to West you ride right out of town, with no shuttling. That's a big plus on rid...

Re: Snowmobile Trip

We usually use Yellowstone Tour and Travel. Going in the park is good for seeing those sites but you ride a long way to see them. If you have time you should definitely spend some time in the national forest. That's all we do now and the trails are well marked plus you can get a guide in the NF if y...
