Answer: We were not there in October last year, but we did camp in West Yellowstone in very late September last year, and in October the year prior. You'd need to check the websites for Yellowstone & Grand Teton to find opening & closing dates for the various facilities for 2018, but in general a few facilities will still be open then; most (especially in Yellowstone) close by end of September. Temperatures can be well below freezing overnight (20s and even teens are possible) and daytime highs will likely vary from the 50s to 60s; they could be less if it's a wet period. Each year is a little different. Last fall was drier and pretty pleasant; the fall before, October was raining/snowing much of the week we were there.

Answer: Hi! The latest we've been there is mid-September. It's a good time to go because it's much less crowded. Dress warmly. Stock lots of soup and hot chocolate. Expect very cool/cold nights - one Labor Day were in were in the Tetons and it snowed several inches. As far as things being open, you could check the general store's websites re closing information and concessions. The trails and vistas will be open, though if it snows rangers may limit access. You will be hundreds of miles from a large grocery store, so stock up your rig before you go. Supplies in the park are limited. Enjoy.

Answer: We left the Friday before the RV part of Colter Bay closed on Sunday 8Oct. All the facilities closed on or about 1Oct as I recall. We had stayed two weeks up at Flagg Ranch and then moved down to Colter Bay. Definitely the better of the two. First snow was a dusting on 16Sep. Had snow a couple of times after that but never more than an inch or two and usually gone within a couple of days. Night temps were dropping into the 20s at times. Keep an eye toward what pass you'll be using to leave. Roads in Yellowstone closed regularly for snow. Enjoy

Answer: We have been there multiple times in the fall and each time is different. One year we were there for two weeks; one week had snow 3 times (just a few inches) and was in the 40's, the other week was in the 60's and beautiful.
The park usually starts closing up around the middle of October. You should find everything still open.
