We were in residence in West Yellowstone last week for 5 days. We were able to get into Bakers Hole Campground by showing up early on Monday morning. Lucky enough to score one of the few electric sites there too.
Our cell service was good enough and a bicycle ride into the town of West Yellowstone was a breeze at only three miles. I also took a bike ride into Yellowstone from Bakers Hole Campground one day, riding to Madison Campground and made the Firehole Canyon Scenic Drive before peddling home .
We took Miranda on a drive around most of Yellowstone's Grand Loop on two different days. We missed a portion of the upper loop from Canyon Village to Tower-Roosevelt due to road construction.
Pro Tips: If you're visiting Yellowstone in the summer months and want to avoid large crowds of people gathering at various points interest, set out early, very early, and finish just after noon. We made coffee along the Madison River near the Madison campground on day one before sunrise. We would have gotten in the park for no charge anyway (geezer pass), but the gate is open 24/7 and doesn't start processing visitors until 6:00 a.m. The temps are cool in the morning, when we were there, low's were in the mid-forties. The geysers are visible at those temps too.
