First time RV camper dividing time between Tetons, Yellowstone and Glacier

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling with our 8-year old daughter the first 2 weeks of August through the areas mentioned in the title. I have enjoyed reading through many of the postings online, but still have the following questions:

1. How to best divide our time between these 3 parks
2. How much should we move campsites to be nearer to the sites, vs. having a 'home base' and driving back and forth
3. Linked to #2, should we rent a car to pull behind the rv for day trips
4. Having not camped much, should we try to plan a mid-stay in a lodge or not
5. Any other tips in general for a first-time rv camper!

From Glacier we will actually be going across Idaho and down into Oregon, but I'll put those questions on a separate posting.
