    Nice views. The road runs above the river on one side if this gorge. Occasional opportunities to park and walk down to the river (which is cool river temperature, not warm as the name might imply)  more »

    This was one my favorite parts of the park. Very low key with only one other car while we were there. Beautiful cliffs and views of the river and falls.  more »

    Here you can take a bath. Refreshing on a hot summer day. But if you had planned not too much time for the Park, I would stay here not too long, because can you swim everywhere, but the attractions of the Park are unique.

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.
