  • Enchanting at sunset... sun reflecting off the hot springs with steam rising, feels like you're on another planet!  more »
  • Unfortunately, the Firehole Canyon drive only with PW is too busy (not with Caravan), as the road is very narrow and only single lane. The narrow passages of the ravine, which was partly created by lava compensate with great views. There's even a small swimming beach at the River, which is unfortunately sometimes slightly crowded.

  • This is one of the rare places in Yellowstone that left me feeling a little underwhelmed. The canyon and waterfall are nice but I didn't find either to be spectacular. On an early afternoon warm sunny...  more »

Where to stay in Yellowstone National Park

As one of the U.S.'s most popular national parks, Yellowstone provides plenty of options for sleeping within its boundaries. Choose from lodges, inns, cabins, hotels, motels, and campgrounds throughout the park. Most of the structured accommodations lie in the park's most-visited areas, such as Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, Old Faithful Geyser, and Yellowstone Lake. Staying on the northern side of the lake puts you right in the heart of the park, making it relatively convenient to visit other areas. Resorts, lodges, and guest ranches line the road just outside the park's east entrance, and a cluster of motels and hotels fills the town of West Yellowstone near the west entrance. You can also opt for lodges and inns to the north in Gardiner, Montana, or find nearly every type of accommodation to the south in Jackson, Wyoming. Staying outside the park is fine if you plan to drive through in a day and catch the highlights, but you'll want to spend at least one night inside the park if you plan to explore it more thoroughly.
