Do you have any reservations for Yellowstone? Jackson does not make a good base for exploring YNP.

Book lodging in park-

https:/…

For out of park look at West Yellowstone and Gardiner.

Do not come in August without reservations.

Depending on flight times may need first and last night in Jackson.

Yes, lodging is key in Yellowstone. The park is huge and people usually move around every few days and base their activities near where they stay. Once you have that lined out, people will be better able to assist.

Jackson is a good base to see Grand Teton Park, but not Yellowstone.
