We left Moab, UT on Thursday May 20th and arrived in West Yellowstone, MT on the afternoon of Saturday May 22nd.
We spent one night at Devil Creek RV Park outside of Malad City, ID off of I-15 . It has a great view of the Devil Creek Reservoir and not too much else.
How can you do wrong with this view? I enjoyed my coffee and daily reading to this view. There were birds out eating insects. There was also a ground squirrel rooting in the grass right in front of The Star (I had to wake the husband up for the ground squirrel, he likes critters). Then we both got The Star ready and went out for a little walk along the reservoir. It was a good start to our day.
After that we continued our way on I-15 to Hwy 33 and then spent Friday night at Beaver Dick Park in Rexburg, ID. This park offers free camping with no hookups. Yes, free camping sites do exist! We have found them at freecampsites.net and freecampgrounds.com. It is a nice park and the Snake River runs along it. After we arrived a large group of tent campers, another RV and two other pull behind trailers showed up. The tent campers were in the front half of the park while we were in the back. There was still plenty of room for more people.
After a pleasant night in Beaver Dick Park, we made our way on US-20 to West Yellowstone. We encountered snow! Since we left Florida we had Spring, Summer and now Winter. It’s going to be cold in West Yellowstone! Here’s the forecast for our week in Yellowstone: the nights are expected to be in the 20s and 30s while the days are expected to be in the 40s through the 60s. This is a great time to see baby animals in Yellowstone.
