Yellowstone National Park Fall Activities

At Yellowstone in the fall fall enjoy hiking, fishing, exploring geothermal features like Old Faithful Geyser, and watching the bison rut and elk rut!


Visitation numbers in September are high so be prepared for crowds during the day. We always recommend entering the park early in the morning, or even later in the afternoon.

– September temperatures: low 30 and high 64 degrees F – October temperatures: low 22 and high 51 degrees F – November temperatures: low 12 and high 34 degrees F

 During the month of October a lot of Yellowstone services and lodging begin to close. In November the only services available are along the road from the North entrance to the Northeast entrance.
