About Yellowstone National Park

Situated in the northwestern corner of Wyoming and bordered by Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone National Park encompasses 2.2 million acres and provides a perfect family vacation destination. The park features more geothermal phenomena than the rest of the world combined, and Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs are park favorites. With gushing geysers, rushing rivers, cascading waterfalls, gurgling mud-pots, volcanic formations, and forested groves, the area offers scenic wonders and photographic gems around every corner. Capture the magnificence of Yellowstone's calderas and geologic wonders. You can view photos of Yellowstone in our Photo Gallery.

Yellowstone Animal Life

On top of its breathtaking natural beauty, Yellowstone National Park offers bird watching and wildlife viewing opportunities near every major attraction. From the safety of your car, watch as elk, moose, bighorn sheep, and bison roam the range. If you're lucky, you may also spot a black bear, grizzly bear, mountain lion, or a pack of elusive Yellowstone wolves. Remember, these animals are wild and should never be approached!

Winter Vacations In Yellowstone

During the winter, the park offers limited visitor access, but is still available to outdoor enthusiasts interested in a winter vacation. A Yellowstone snowmobile vacation is an increasingly popular way to enjoy the serene setting blanketed in snow. Snowcoaches depart from West Yellowstone, offering unique transportation through Yellowstone and a singular opportunity to see Yellowstone's wildlife in winter splendor. Roads are groomed for snowmobile and cross-country skiing access from mid-December through mid-March.

Yellowstone Vacations for Summer

If you're arranging a summer vacation, the park offers a range of outdoor activities. Discover Yellowstone by going horseback riding, bicycling, or hiking. At night, curl up beneath starry skies on a Yellowstone camping adventure. For anglers, the 87,000-acre Yellowstone Lake offers quality fly-fishing in the park’s southeastern corner. Internationally renowned for its premier trout waters, the Yellowstone River is an ideal fishing hole as it winds through deep canyons, grassy meadows, and dense forests.

Beyond Yellowstone: The Grand Tetons

After exploring Yellowstone, travel south through the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway to Grand Teton National Park. Towering mountains, wilderness areas, and national forests surround this park once inhabited by early explorers and mountain men. Here, visitors will find convenient access to outstanding camping, scenic drives, views of the jagged Teton Mountain Range, and outdoor adventure in all seasons. In nearby Jackson, float the Snake River, go white water rafting, or travel across Targhee Pass to discover what southeastern Idaho has to offer.

So stop dreaming and start making your travel plans a reality. With so many options, this ultimate travel resource will help you create a perfect trip to the Yellowstone area customized to your specific interests and needs.
