My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids ages 7, 10, and 12) are going to be driving from Denver (where we live) to YNP and GTNP next June. We have a full week, Saturday to following Sunday). Because I didn't realize accommodations would fill up so fast I only booked about a month ago when we decided this is what we would do.
I have Saturday through Wednesday night booked at Grant Village in YNP and then Thursday through Saturday night booked at Colter Bay Lodge in GTNP.
I guess I don't have a whole lot of choice on lodging since most everything is booked for the dates I would need, but am I going to regret basing ourselves in only one area for our time in YNP? I suppose I could keep watching other lodging for openings, but not even sure which I should look at or how to organize it? Or will we be able to cover a good portion of the must-sees relatively easily from Grant Village? If anyone has done a similar trip based from Grant Village I'd love if you would share your itinerary.
