Pretty much closed March other than the north road. You can take some winter tours if you like but they're not cheap.

what about in end of may?

Mostly open but subject to closure. Earliest in the season I was ever there was early June and there were still periodic snow closures.

My first time there was last days of May / First days of June (I don't remember exactly) IIRC there some closures (the beartooth highway was definitely closed) but I did make it to all the major attractions. And the place was completely empty.

Oh it's definitely worth going in May even if there's risk of snow. Baby bison!

Iím planning on going to Yellowstone/Grand Teton mid May. Thanks everyone who posted their trip reports - it was extremely helpful. I mapped out a tentative itinerary - was wondering if anyone whoís been there can chime in. I donít mind packing it in on a vacation but what I have seems too aggressive. Additionally, Iím having trouble where to stay each night as majority of the park hotels are closed the dates I will be there.

Sunday
Arrive 1:30pm
Stop by Walmart to get some food
Mammoth Springs, Minerva Terrace
Can stay in Gardiner, MT for the night

Monday
Artist Paintpots
Norris Geyser Basin
Canyon junction (probably just the Upper Falls as I donít think I want a strenuous like like Uncle Tomís Trail)
Hayden Valley
Mud Volcano

Tuesday
Yellowstone Lake
Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring
Iím stuck here. I would head to Grand Teton - should I do Lewis Falls, Jackson Lake, Oxbow Bend, Jenny lake, Hedrik Pond, Antelope Flats, or Teton Crest Trail? Or a combination of them?
Would stay in Jackson for the night

Wednesday
sunrise at Schwabacher landing
Gross ventre wilderness?
Idaho Falls
Idaho potato museum
Is it crazy to do Shoshone Falls and Craters of the Moon too?
Thinking of driving more and staying in Big Sky or Bozeman for the night

Thursday
Gallitan River/Canyon
2:40pm flight

Thank you!

Do campgrounds ever get cancellations? Im looking to go in early May but there is only one campground open (Mammoth) at that point, and it is fully booked for the date I was looking at. Any chance it will open up as we get closer? did anyone ever have any success showing up and hoping for a cancellation? thanks
