Northern Yellowstone: Where the Wild Things Roam

Northern Yellowstone: where the wild things roam [Lamar, Roosevelt, Beartooth, Mammoth & More]

If you want to see wildlife in Yellowstone, head north! The best sites in Northern Yellowstone include Lamar Valley, Roosevelt, and Mammoth Hot Springs. But don’t forget about some great things outside of the park, such as the Beartooth Highway and Gardiner, MT, where the Roosevelt Arch is located! The Beartooth Highway connects Red Lodge, MT with Cooke-City-Silvergate, MT, the gateway to the Northeast Entrance. Once you enter the park, you’ll be in the famed Lamar Valley, where the wild things roam, such as bears, bison, wolves, and elk. Don’t forget about Trout Lake while you’re there! Also, don’t forget the Roosevelt Old West Cookout, one of the best experiences we’ve ever had in Yellowstone. They’ll take you by stagecoach to Pleasant Valley for steak, beans, coffee, cowboy songs, and more.
