Where can I mail postcards from? Can I purchase stamps or best brought from home?

1. Re: Mail?

I bought my own stamps and each of the hotels we stayed had a place for mail. We did stay outside the park in West Yellowstone, Gardiner, Cody and Jackson Hole. So I do not know about the lodges in the park.

There is a US Post Office at Lake Village. That is where our son gets his mail. It is only open seasonally. Opens in mid-May and I am not sure when it closes for the winter.

There is also a post office at Mammoth and I believe there is one at Old Faithful.

We brought our own stamps with us, but each place we stayed at had a mail drop box you could mail things from. We stayed at Lake Lodge, Old Faithful Inn, and Roosevelt lodge cabins.

There is also a US Post Office behind the Old Faithful Inn, but mail drop boxes are by all the check-in desks for lodging. I always bring stamps so I don't have to waste time in the park standing in line.

I was talking to the postmaster at Old Faithful. There are five post offices, I think he said. I've been to the ones at Old Faithful, Mammoth, and Grant. If you send mail from the Old Faithful office, it will have a special postmark. The rest just have "Yellowstone National Park" on them. I guess I just like to go to the post office on vacation...
