 From hiking and fishing in the park’s many rivers and lakes, to camping under starry skies and exploring geothermal features like Old Faithful Geyser, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy your summer in Yellowstone.

 We recommend visiting the various Visitor Centers in the park to get updated information on the points of interest, hiking trails, and other activities to do in each area.

 Yellowstone covers over 2 million acres of land! It’s divided into 2 main sections and 9 areas. The best way to experience the park is exploring the beautiful Yellowstone scenic drives in the park and surrounding areas.

 Most of the Yellowstone waterfalls don’t require hiking to see them. In July the water is still running high so it’s a good time to photograph waterfalls.
