Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park and Route 191

While in West Yellowstone we stayed at the Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park.  It's within walking distance of the center of town and very close to the western entrance to Yellowstone.  It is not an inexpensive RV park.  It's a very manicured park, sites are level but fairly close to each other.  One thing they do is enforce the rule that your vehicle must be on your site and not sticking out into the street.  Interior roads are a tiny bit narrow, so that becomes important when driving a large bus through the park.  We were on a non-premium site, park supplied wi-fi was limited to 2 hours on, then 8 hours without.  Wifi did not work where we were at all, so it didn't matter.  Premium sites are closer to the office, and have unlimited usage.  Our Verizon Jet Pack could only pull in 3G, and it was painfully slow.  I had better luck using my phone as a hotspot, while Jim did better with the Jet Pack.  Our PCs are identical, so I have no idea why that would be.  We were able to get satellite, and I think that would be true of any site in the park.  There are trees, but they aren't tall or pesky.  Anyway, it's a very nice park, staffed by very friendly people.
And now, a route review.  We went north on 191 out of West Yellowstone, heading towards Bozeman.   It's a gorgeous route, and easy to drive.  We were a little concerned that it would have a lot of up down and turns, but it's really pleasant driving.  If your route takes you north, go that way.

So there you go, a place to stay and a way out of there.
