Who knew that the fires in California etc would cause the air quality to be worse than the big cities!
We were luck and got a place inside the park at Canyon.
The trick is that there are no reservations and you have to be at a campground very early to get a spot.
We made a mistake and reserved a spot in Powell east of Cody ( the blurb said 15 min from the park entrance, but not that the entrance mentioned was three parks from Yellowstone!
This would be a two hour drive in and out!
We took a chance on getting a place and got the last place at 10:30 AM in Canyon.
If you want a spot then get a spot outside, but CLOSE so that you can get to the grounds early early early.
The commercial campground at Fishing Bridge has a computer that tells the opened and closed reserved and non-reserved spots and the history of when they filled each day previously.
EARLY EARLY EARLY.
This applies also to going to the various spots you want to visit as when more people get on the road and the Buffalo and bear jams start you will spend hours to get by.
Start early and get there before the crowds!!!
We stayed in the campground with nothing besides a space to park so Frank had to "boondock".
No problem except that the solar panel
did not give the power it should due to the heat when the panel should have been putting out the max.
We converted the fridge
to an ice box by stuffing the freezer with ice (in baggies) and putting a tray with a large baggie full of ice.
This along with an ice chest in the van took care of the problems.
The solar panel
took care of all of the other needs for the camper.
