Yellowstone - Planning trip for 2011 - When is the best time to go?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for 2011 and thinking about going in May or June. I am looking for advice on all aspects of the trip. Should I just stick with YNP or include GTNP and surrounding areas? I have about 10 days not counting the travel to and from the area. I will be flying from Tampa and have flexibility in my dates. Where are the best places to stay in the park? I am looking for the best experience so price isn't my 1st priority although I do not have an unlimited budget. I have also been reading that the roads may be closed in May. How many roads are typically closed in May and how much will I miss due to road closures? I am not much of a hiker so I will be sticking to the main roads and easier trails and would like to avoid the peak season if possible.

Also, I was thinking about taking a side trip to Mt Rushmore. How reasonable is that?
