Where to leave rental car while staying in the park in winter

by cewpitt

We are hiring a rental car from Bozeman Airport in January and driving to West Yellowstone. We have booked 3 nights at Old Faithful Snow Lodge, and as the road will be closed, are wondering where to leave the rental car till we get back to West Yellowstone. We will then be driving on to Big Sky. We have the Xanterra snowcoach booked to take us into the park.

If you have a Budget Rent a Car you might be able to park in their lot in West Yellowstone. There are many hotels near the entrance to the park like the Holiday Inn that you might be able to get them to let you park at their parking area. The Park Ranger Station is also in West Yellowstone and they have a huge parking lot, not sure if you can overnight there, but in winter it may be snow packed for snowmobiles usage. Maybe the snowcoach company has a parking lot you can use. Check with them.

At that time of year you could actually park on the street for that long w/o anyone bothering it.

Travel Tips for West Yellowstone

Call ahead for a schedule

The wolves generally appear in their habitat all at once. The bears are brought out in revolving groups of various sizes, ranging from one to four bears at a time. The largest bear Toby (at 850 pounds) seems little bigger than Sam at 550 pounds. You might hope to see both bears together, but if they have fought together in the past 24 hours, the Center might run them at different times for the next week.

You get the general idea.

Visiting Yellowstone National Park

by KimberlyAnn

Although Yellowstone’s West Entrance begins just outside the little town of West Yellowstone, you will need to drive 14 miles to Madison Junction to get on the park’s main figure eight road.

When in Yellowstone, don't just go to Old Faithful and leave. There is SO much more. One thing that is fun is to take the Old Faithful Lodge historic tour, which is quite interesting. If you don't want to do this, at least go in and look around. It is the most outstanding log structure I have ever seen. Besides the Old Faithful geyser basin, Norris, the hottest geyser basin, is very nice. Eucinas geyser’s eruption is no longer predictable, if it does go off while you are in Norris, be sure to see it. Although located on the east side of the park, therefore a fairly long drive from West Yellowstone, the Canyon area and it's falls are a not to be missed activity. Artists Point is my favorite look out point, and a must see view, although Lookout Point is also a very nice view of the Lower Falls. Inspiration Point will give you a wonderful view of the canyon. You can also hike down to the base of the lower falls along the Uncle Tom's trail. It's quite a down/up walk with lots of stairs, but if you are up to it a nice one. We took our son on Uncle Tom’s when he was about 8, and his tongue was hanging out by the time we got down there----and he still had to go up. If you have time another interesting area to visit is the Mammoth Hot Springs area and Tower Falls. For wildlife check out Lamar Valley on the northeast side of the park, and Haden Valley on the east side. If you want a special dinner out, the Old Faithful Inn, Snow Lodge dinning room, Lake Hotel, and the lodge at Mammoth all have excellent restaurants.

For detailed information on what to see, where to eat, and many other suggestions and tips including a few short videos, visit my Yellowstone VT pages at Yellowstone National Park, My Neighbor.

Great Spot to stay for your Yellowstone Adventure

"West Yellowstone - Just outside of Yellowstone"

The first couple of weeks in August are a very busy time for Yellowstone. When my mom was looking to make reservations, she couldn't find anything in the national park, so she looked to the towns on the outskirts. West Yellowstone in Montana is just on the west border of the park and made a great home base for our visit.

These Mountains were so amazing to me as I am from the east and what we have are more like rolling hills in comparison.West Yellowstone,of all the entrances to Yellowstone Park was the best by far there are many good places to eat,shop and rest your head.

Same view as above but with a setting sun.For April I caught an amazing week of weather here as I went in a t-shirt all week.
