RE: Best Route from Rock Springs, Wy to Yellowstone

Rock Springs to Pinedale to Hoback Junction to Jackson to South gate of Yellowstone. We take this route every year in late summer. We stop in Rock Springs overnight at the Walmart..if we need to stock up before we get into tourist country and prices. We stop again at Warren's Bridge campground which is about 20 miles northwest of Pinedale..has water and a dump station...and puts us about 2 hours from Jackson. We get fuel at Hoback Junction, just after you go through the round about...easy in and out at station. In Jackson, a block before the square downtown, we take the truck route, which is easier than turning at the square. Or, you can turn south at Hoback Junction and go down to Alpine, then go right to Idaho and route 26 over to 20 and north to West Yellowstone. Palisades campground is about 7 miles west of Alpine.. water and dump station there. West Yellowstone has several rv parks, but in heavy demand, so reserve as soon as you can.

RE: Garbage Cans

I use a 2 gallon waste bucket and plastic grocery bags and empty it every day. If we stay in a park with recycle bins, i hang a large kitchen bag on my pantry door knob to collect cans and plastic bottles/jars.

RE: National Forest boondocking sites compatible with big rigs

Out west, most of the, the size of the site will be fine, BUT its the road to get to it that might be rough enough to make you holler!!!! Especially after it has rained recently.

RE: Kanas City, Ks to Yellowstone National Park

I70 west to 83 north to I80, then west to I25 and north to Casper. Then 20 west and north to Thermopolis and 120 on to Cody and 14 into Yellowstone. There are lots of things to see on this route. When you know the date you'll get to Yellowstone, make reservations NOW or as soon as they let you do it.

RE: Rapid City, SD to Yellowstone

take 90 over to Buffalo WY and then take 16 over the Bighorns, then north and west to Cody and west to Yellowstone. Take the route across the park if you want to go to West Yellowstone. All good roads, but don't be surprised by road work in some places. Buffalo has a couple nice rv parks if you're ready to quit at that time Over the mountains, there is a nice rv park on the west side of Ten Sleep, very shady and laid out nice. Up at Cody, there is the Ponderosa RV park on the west side of town, just down the street from the really great Buffalo Bill Museum of the West. Or, out of town about 7 miles, there is Buffalo Bill State Park. Or, further out, there is Wapiti Campground (gov) and further on, Rex Hale campround (gov) We have stayed at all of them and have no complaints. the gov camps do not have hookups. Bon Voyage!

RE: Sheridan Wy to horseshoe bend campground near Lovell Wy

14A is not called the "Oh My God!" route for nothing. Believe me, the climb or descent on the west side is truly scary. 14 is the better option, but I can tell you that on your way down, when you pull off to rest at Shell Canyon rest stop, you can smell the acrid odor of hot brakes coming from every vehicle parked there. As stated above, 16 is much better and just as beautiful.

RE: Pay or No Pay?

we did camp host volunteering for a few years at a state park we liked, but we only did it a month at a time. then it got to where the parks demanded the hosts volunteer for the whole season and that was too long for us. but the "job" was easy enough and pleasant...just checking folks in and out and keeping restrooms stocked with paper supplies and reporting messes or unruly guests etc to the office, or calling the state police if necessary...which never was.

RE: Central Missouri to Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs sits at the foot of the Rockies, so stay in the Cheyenne Mountain State Park, just south of the city, and do your sightseeing in your truck. For Estes, since we've never been there, yet, I suggest you take I 25 north thru Denver and then up to Boulder, and approach Estes from the east because the park is not real deep into the mountains (but is definitely in the mountains), but I do not have a suggestion for an rv park or state park in that location. There are lots of others on the forum who can give you info on that.

RE: black water tank treatments

RE: No shots...not getting in.

you have the freedom to choose. but that doesn't give you freedom from being blocked from entering stores or countries, etc. no shoes, no shirt, no shots, no service.

RE: Cody to Billings Help!

take 310 out of Cody up to Billings. Good road, no issues, no grades, etc.

RE: Older trailer, smelly toilet

ditto to checking the gray water holding tank because it, too, can really get stinky. each time we dump, we start off with 2 Cups cheap liquid detergent, 1 Cup borax and a gallon of fresh each tank. This seems to do the job very well for us. We don't dump until they are at least half full and sometimes, they are almost to the top full. :)
