The campground at Fremont Indian SP is a wonderful resource in the state of Utah.  It is open all year, and is first come-first served until May 1st.  After May 1st you can make reservations by calling (877) UT-PARKS or just show up and keep your fingers crossed! The campground sites are $13/Night, and there is a one time reservation fee if you do choose to reserve it of $8.

With no traffic, about an hour and a half. With traffic and/or animal in the road type delays, it could take considerably longer. Also, ask the rangers at the entrance gate you use about road closures, travelling the north half of the grand loop was delayed or closed much of last year due to construction between Madison and Norris.

I usually tell folks that a good estimate is to plan for about 30 minutes for each section of road (ie East Entrance to Fishing Bridge Junction; Fishing Bridge Junction to Canyon Junction; etc.).  It might take more time if you make stops of get into an animal jam or it might take you less time, but it will give you a rough idea.  Have a great trip.

While portions of this scenic route remain open year-round, weather permitting, the entire Going-to-the-Sun Road is open for vehicle access from mid-June to mid-September. Before and after this core summer season, sections of the road will be closed.

I'm coming to the Grand Tetons April 5-8 and am interested in sleigh rides as well as observing the wildlife.  I also plan on going to Yellowstone Park.  I'm from northern Indiana, so the cold weather and snow won't bother me.  How are the main roads as well as the snow amounts?  Are the temps in the low to mid 30s?

Grand Tetons National Park generally only offers guided snowshoeing tours through the end of March. If there is enough snow it is possible the park may extend their tours. Please call (307) 739-3399 or for more information. You can also visit the following website for more information on cross country skiing and snowshoeing in Grand Tetons.

Sleigh rides are offered in the surrounding communities like Jackson Hole. The following sites are links to several concessioners who provide these services. You will have to check with them to determine whether or not they will still be offering these tours.

As far as average temperatures go in both Yellowstone and Grand Teton, you can generally expect temperatures to range from 20 to 40 degrees. Be prepared for some snow. Yellowstone averages roughly 6 inches of snow in April, while Grand Tetons averages 23 inches. 
 
Most of the major roads outside the park are plowed. For status update on roads within the parks please follow the links below or call the following numbers:
 
- In Yellowstone check http://www.nps.gov/yell/conditions.htm or call (307) 344-2117

 

- In Grand Teton check www.nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/roads.htm or call (307) 739-3614

I have yet to do any backpacking in Yellowstone.  I love waterfalls so I'd backpack the southwest corner of the park.  http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/backcountryhiking.htm

I-15 is a major thoroughfare, so I expect that unless there are heavy snowfalls, you won't run into any closures.  There are many routes into Bryce off of I-15, so you will have to look at a map to determine how scenic you want your course to be.  It also depends on wether you are coming from points North or points South.  Either direction, you will make your way to UT 12, and then to UT 63 (State Roads).  63 is the only thoroughfare through the park.  

There are only ever brief closures in Bryce after heavy snowstorms.  Otherwise, it is a year round park.  If you want to check, you can find more information here, or call the visitors information hotline,  435.834.5322.
