We are going to Yellowstone next year in August and are planning on 6 nights, Is that enoung time to see most of Yellowstone?
Thank you for your help.
That's long enough to let you feel like you saw it all. We were there for 3 days last July and loved it. We're going back in June.
If you stay in one place, you'll spend a lot of time in the car. I couldn't relate to how big the place is until we got there. In July we stayed at Old Faithful Inn. Next time we're staying at Canyon and Roosevelt. We get a week this time.
If you want to read about our trip and planning, we put a trip report and pictures on our web site.
click on the bison.
We flew into Jackson Hole if that matters.
Angel's Mom- You should have enough time to relax and fit in some fun activities. If you are bringing younger children with you, make sure to sign up for the Junior Ranger program (see the insider pages for Yellowstone Park for more information). You can also take time to hike, take a boating trip on Yellowstone Lake, take a tour, go to the visitor's centers (the new one at Canyon is really neat and all about supervolcanoes), try a chuckwagon dinner, etc. just depending on what you want to do!
Thank you for your responses.
We are going to be in Yellowstone for 6 nights (Part of a western US trip). We are going to be on the road for 45 nights total.
We are hoping to make our reservations tomorrow evening, but we are not sure where to stay.
Any help would be appreciated.
I would follow AKJ's suggestion and stay at more than one place.
We've been to Yellowstone and Grand Teton NP 3 times and stayed 3 days in YNP and 1 day GTNP each time. Of course you can stay much longer. Friends of mine went hiking in this area for three weeks. 6 Nights is long enough to get a good impression and don't forget Grand Teton NP.
We are going to Yellowstone in June. Already made reservations for Lake Yellowstone Hotel for 4 nights. We want to stay at a ranch close to Teton for 4 nights. We are taking our 7 yrs old that loves to horse back ride. I have checked out many of the ranches but so much money. I loved Lone Mountain Ranch until I saw the prices. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your help.
Hi MLB, welcome to the forum
This is an old thread and will give few response I'm afraid. Maybe put a new topic on the Wyoming Forum.
I can give you a hint though. Maybe try Dubois along us26. It's almost 50 miles from the east entrance of GTNP but it's in a wonderful area and rates are much lower. Just google: Mountain Lodges Dubois Wyoming. Also for horseback riding. We loved this area.
I see your post was a while ago, but I noticed you asked about the Lazy G. My husband and I stayed here in 1997 for several nights. It is VERY reasonably priced and the owners are very friendly. I remember it being very clean, but it was very dated. However, you spend so much time in the park that by the time you return, you just want a clean, comfortable place, and the Lazy G will fit the bill.
It may have been renovated by now; it has been several years. I'm sure you could find out if any updating has been done between now and then.
You will have a great time, and the time you have alloted is fine. If you have time, don't miss the Tetons!! You can see them very comfortably in 2-3 days. Be sure to see Hidden Falls if you go. There should be a boat running across Jenny Lake that will get you there pretty quickly.
Enjoy your trip.
