There is so much to do in this park. And it's big. Try to spend several days here if you can. We only had a couple of days, so we did the highlights like old faithful and some of the other geysers and hot pools. You will be stopped on the road by bison at some point, and the speed limit is slow, so it will take time to get from place to place. Relax and enjoy your visit.
Fantastic place! Stayed at the historic Old Faithful Inn, and walked outside just as a bison family passed by. So much beauty, wildlife, geysers, and great things to see. Bring the kids
Without doubt Yellowstone is a must visit for all budding adventurers and those interested in the geothermal and ecological aspects of the National Park. Yellowstone's diversity is what makes it appealing. One moment you can be admiring its geysers and hot springs the next you can be enchanted with its wildlife, such as its native bison. Access to and within Yellowstone National Park is limited depending on the seasons. In the winter, all roads aside from the one which enters from Gardiner, Montana, and extends to Cooke City, Montana, are closed to wheeled vehicles. Park roads are closed to wheeled vehicles from early November to mid April, but some park roads remain closed until mid-May. Private tours can be made by members of the public who wish to gain access to the National Park during such periods of limited road access to and within Yellowstone.
I personally love nature and Yellowstone National Park was a lot better than I expected (I already thought the trip was going to be awesome but it was better than awesome!) To whomever rates this park below 5 stars, why? And one comment said because the park was a super volcano, well just so you know, if that volcano explodes, everyone's probably going to disintegrate anyway so at least you were able to see nature's beauty before it gets blown away. Go to Yellowstone!!!!
We visited Jan 7-8. Winter trips require a tour guide, as no private cars are allowed. Our guides were knowledgeable and the park is strikingly beautiful in the winter. We went to the canyons day 1, and Old Faithful & Fountain Paint Pots day 2. We met several rangers at the stations and they were friendly and helpful.
