    Remember that if (more like when) it snows, they don't plow in Yellowstone. At least they didn't when I was there one September. Be prepared to hang out a bit while it melts.

    Re: Yellowstone in October??

    Nice comments on Yellowstone but I wonder if the original poster is going to look back at this thread started nearly 5 years ago-- but just now come out of hibernation in the past week?

    That said, most services in Yellowstone are closed and winterized after the first week in October. The roads are open but it's suddenly a couple of hours additional driving to find a place sleep, shower, or eat, to and then return to that spot the next morning (I'm thinking of places like Hayden Valley).

    Oh, and BTW, the Upper Yellowstone is about to break the grip of a years-long drought.

    I have to wonder why a thread asking about Yellowstone in October with the last post in 2004 suddenly gets resurrected in 2009 by a new member who just happens to have a link in his sig for Yellowstone Park Tours. Me, suspicious, naw, not at all!

    You'll probably have snow this year, there's some on the high peaks already...at least as of two days ago.
    Note that Hayden Pass is closed by the second week of Oct as is the even more interesting Beartooth Hwy. Chief Joseph stays open all year.
    Services are nil after the first week in Oct. and that includes all hotels inside the park and most of them in the gateway communities. Campgrounds are also mostly if not all shut. Suggest a vehicle you can comfortably boondock it in, weather is usually nasty by then as well.

    That's total BS. Services hotels, and campgrounds inside the park are shuttered by the first week in Oct.
