The beauty of Yellowstone has to be seen to fully appreciate. Every single turn off along the roads are worth your time. The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is truly a hi light! Go see for yourself. Full review by F7895NQcarols

Q:
What will be the best way to enjoy both Yellow stone and the MT. Rushmore with over two weeks time...rent an RV, or a car?

I wouldn’t want to have to drive an RV all the places there are to see in Yellowstone, but people do it. I prefer the “agility” of a car. Two weeks should give you plenty of time to visit both areas. With either an RV or a car, if you are planning a trip during summer vacation period, make campsite or hotel reservations well in advance at Yellowstone. Many hotels and RV campgrounds just outside the park in gateway cities, too.

Hi! What are everyone’s top recommendations for geysers and hot springs and pools for the loop road. We’ll have 3 days in Yellowstone during the last week of August (this month). Our base is the Old Faithful Inn. Also, if anyone knows how the crowds are the last week of August...just curious. We arrive in Yellowstone on 8/25 and leave for Grand Teton NP on 8/28.

I’m late to answer, but ... spend a day hiking around old faithful. The geysers are mostly unpredictable. Hike to beauty pool. If your traveling to grand prismatic spring, hike to the overlook at ground level it is it impressive.
