Re: October 3-12

Your report sounds a little like my most recent fishing trip down your way. I had fun in spite of the wind and hopefully you did too.

Re: Slough Creek

Thanks Yellvet, I guess I didn't make it too clear. I always do find a campsite as soon as I get in the area I'm exploring. I agree, it would be nerve wrecking to wait very late with no place to hang my hat.

Re: Slough Creek

Thanks Yellvet. from what I am hearing it doesn't sound like its worth the hassle unless a camper is going to spend a lot of days in the CG. I cant see that happening. I will probably check it out but certainly not count on it. Most of my trips to YP I usually camp wherever I end up for the day to c...

Re: Slough Creek

It does. Over the years I have lined up at many campgrounds before the gates opened to secure a site. Is that the way SC will be on opening day? If so what time should I be there to line up?

Slough Creek

If I am camping at Mammoth campgrounds when SC opens what is the best way to get a site? Is this something that everyone is going to be attempting?

Re: How early is too early?

If I am able to time my trip and stay in Mammoth for several days prior to SC opening how hard is it to get in Slough Creek the day it opens?

Re: How early is too early?

Thanks Yellvet, These are good recommendations. Bad preparation can turn a minor inconvenience into a costly waste of time and money. I will be in four wheel drive which helps some. I'm going to do a southern route from Ga and catch some Utah parks on the way so I will have to keep an eye on the wea...

Re: How early is too early?

Thanks everybody, This helps a lot. Does Hayden Valley and East entrance open the same date each year or vary with snow cover?

How early is too early?

We are putting together a trip for the spring. We have been to Yellowstone quite a few times but never early in the season. This is the year to do this. We have total flexibility in departure times and I know snow amounts always change. What advice can everybody offer as to when we should go to maxi...
