Yellowstone National Park

Home of the First National Park

It’s a Wonderland! Old Faithful and the majority of the world’s geysers are preserved here. The world’s first national park is only 30 miles away from Grandma’s Cabin. America’s first national park—an idea that spread worldwide. A mountain wild land, home to grizzly bears, wolves, and herds of bison and elk, the park is the core of one of the last, nearly intact, natural ecosystems in the Earth’s temperate zone. Here, you can see the natural wonders of geysers, waterfalls, lakes and streams, and don’t forget to see Old Faithful geyser and the historic Old Faithful Inn.

A Place Like No Other...

Yellowstone has approximately 10,000 active thermal features, the most famous of which is Old Faithful geyser, which erupts as high as 184 feet into the air every 90 minutes give or take about 10 minutes.

The park is mostly in Wyoming but spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho too.  Yellowstone is home to an incredible variety of wildlife, such as grizzly bear, black bear, bison, elk, big horn sheep and moose.  Along with wolf, fox and coyote, mammals and birds.

Be forewarned that the animals you see in the national parks are NOT tame; keep a safe distance away from wildlife.
