Bustling with over two million acres of gorgeous waterfalls, bursting geysers, and enchanting hot springs, Yellowstone National Park captures the majesty and wonder of America’s great outdoors. Famous for being the world’s first national park, it is so vast it sprawls across three states: Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Yellowstone is the ultimate RV adventure since it is home to some of the most famous natural wonders like Old Faithful, a spectacular geyser that explodes every hour, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, a colorful canyon that towers above the Yellowstone River.
You will be in store for a world of limitless adventure during your RV trip to Yellowstone, from hiking and horseback riding to snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. You can boat or fish in the largest lake in the park, Lake Yellowstone. There is no shortage of great spots for photography and wildlife viewing like Artist’s Point or Lamar Valley. You can even walk amongst magical hot springs and geysers that delight with color at Mammoth Hot Springs or the Norris Geyser Basin. You will want to bring your binoculars because you will be greeted by roaming wildlife from bison and bears to elk and moose.
The summer is the peak season for RVers and other visitors since the temperature typically reaches a pleasant 70 to 80 degrees. The late spring and early fall are a nice time of year to visit too, with mild temperatures and less crowded roads. In the colder months, Yellowstone National Park turns into a winter wonderland. While heavy snowfall closes most roads, there are still many ways to explore this breathtaking setting in the winter from snowcoach tours to snowshoeing. No matter what time of year you take your RV road trip to Yellowstone, you will be in for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure you will never forget.
