Tracks & Trails greatly simplifies the process of vacationing at a national park in a motor home, taking care of RV rentals, campground bookings and more. The 7- to 10-day Best of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks trip (offered May to September) begins and ends in Jackson, Wyoming. In Yellowstone, spot wolves, elk, bison, grizzlies and the famous Old Faithful geyser; at Grand Teton, go canoeing on Jenny Lake, where the mountains are reflected in the mirrorlike surface of the water. (Yes, really.)
You can't change lanes quickly in an RV: Designate a navigator with binoculars in the passenger seat to help you anticipate exits and turns. Aim to reach campsites well before dark.
Rates start at $4,210 for a family of 4, including RV rental, campground reservations, itinerary, hotel stay, guided tour of Yellowstone with lunch and admission to Grizzly Discovery Center. Call 800-247-0970; tracks-trails.com.
Jackson Hole is a classic frontier town. Catch mock shoot-outs in the square, and watch cowboys at Jackson Hole Rodeo (adults, $15; kids 4-12, $9; jacksonholerodeo.us).
