Yellowstone - lodging outside of park mid August good or bad idea???

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 traveling to YNP in mid August. Not many options in the park (late planners). My plan right now is to fly into Billings and drive to Silver Gate, MT near the Northeast Entrance. Have a room reserved at Mammoth but have read some bad reviews.....wondering if we are better off in Gardiner or West Yellowstone? We have one night booked at the Lake Hotel which I will keep. We will be there 5 or 6 days. How bad is traffic into the park from the West or North entrance?

Thanks.
