And if you don't care for the crowds we highly recommend visiting in September if your schedule allows. The evenings will be frosty, but the crowds will be thin, the colors will be changing, and the elk will be bugling. It is a magical time in the park! If you do go, check the park website to see which campgrounds and other locations might be closing as several of them do start to shut down as the month of September wears on.
