Planning Trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone

Hey guys, Planning a trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone around the last week of May 2015 (before the kids get out of school). Any recommendations on RV campgrounds to stay at (both parks) ?

Will be coming from Southern Nevada.

Thanks in advance

also from vegas, best bet is to stay in brigham city, real nice campground right off the brigham city exit on the 15, next daydrive to park, in the park stay at fishing bridge campground you need to reserve now, check with park as to dates they don't open until late may because of snow, fishing bridge is best because it is right in the middle of the park all private parks are way outside the park and most are not to nice, bring bear spray, on the way leave thru south end of park to grand tetons, pretty scenery , we usually stay near jackson hole, or drive straight thru to park city ,utah we have done this several times, yellowstone is a must book early- bring warm cloths

We stayed at Grant's Village in Yellowstone NP, and Colter Bay at Grand Teton NP. We were very satisfied with both. We got one of the higher priced sites (which really aren't expensive) at Colter Bay and it was worth every penny in convenience.

The area behind the asphalt pad was several inches of gravel so there wouldn't be any standing water. (We were there 5 days and didn't see any rain.) The gravel was contained by a concrete barrier. We set up a screen tent there.

Didn't care to much for Fishing Bridge CG. Units are stuffed in there like cord wood. I would look into some of the other CGs in the park, there are several, not with hookups but much more roomy and quiet.

Just my $.02

I think its going to be very cold in May. But would highly recommend drive from Yellowstone to Cody. That was the best 50 mile drive ever. Have a great time! My wife and I enjoy that area so much.

It's been a while but we stayed at a nice KOA just west of West Yellowstone. When ya get up near sunrise the mountains surrounding the area are beautiful.

We've been six times in the last eight years and always stay at Flagg Ranch in Moran. It's now called Headwaters. It's between YNP and GTNP off of the Rockefeller Expressway. You have to drive through GTNP to get to it. It has full hook-ups, a small lodge with restaurant, convenience store, and gas. We never cared for the campgrounds inside the parks.

Some friends stayed at the Flagg Ranch this fall and gave it good reviews.
