More about Old Faithful Lodge Cabins

Lodging inside Yellowstone...

by mikem

Lodging inside Yellowstone Park is acceptable and travel times makes using hotels within the Park a time saving issue. One of my favorite places is Old Faithful Inn, a historic landmark.
Prices for the 2 room family unit is about $140.00 US in 2000. The prices for rooms are set each year by the Parks service so you need to check. There are many other rooms including rooms with no bathrooms (bathrooms are in the hall). This is a good option for those on a budget, these rooms are much less expensive. You can sit on the second floor balcony in either wooden chairs or benches and watch Old Faithful erupt. It's wonderful getting up early in the morning and walking or jogging through the geyser basin area, you have the whole area to a very few folks. The photography opportunties in the morning are great.
The inside of Old Faithful lodge is unique, take time to look at the wood work and metal work all throughout the hotel. The family rooms with two connecting bedrooms makes for a great place for family and children. Be forwarned however, Old Faithful is ALL WOOD AND OLD, you hear the building creak and groan with the movement of folks in their rooms. I found it relaxing, some may not.

Old Faithful Post Office

by annk

The Old Faithful geyser area has its own post office. It's located next to the Snowlodge, and behind the Old Faithful Lodge. Very convenient for sending postcards to fellow VTers, friends or family. I even had to mail one to myself :-) just to get the Old Faithful post mark.

Visit YellowStone National...

by J_lynch

Visit YellowStone National Park. I went during the winter. The only way in during the winter is to take a two hour snowcat into the Old faithful lodge area. We did a bunch of cross country skiing and were able to see Old Faithful and the rest of the area without any crowds. When we were watching Old Faithful, there was not another person in sight. Pretty cool.

Standard fare

by Segolily about Cafeteria at Old Faithful

We stopped for dinner at Old Faithful Lodge (not the Inn or Snowlodge). There were lots of options, sandwiches, soups, prime rib, b-que ribs. I had Buffalo meatloaf. My husband enjoyed the ribs. It isn't anything fancy, though prices would make you think it was, but it was good and you can't beat the view out the window of Old Faithful Geyser.

Old Faithful Lodge Cafeteria

by jasperdo about Old Faithful Lodge Cafeteria

At this cafeteria, timing is everything. Unfortunately, our timing was horrible. We arrived at Old Faithful at 12:20PM, and decided to eat before going out to see the geyser do it's thing. Unfortunately, Old Faithful had just erupted at 12:15. And naturally everyone that had watched that show had the same idea ...we'll watch Old Faithful and then go to lunch. So, we arrived at the cafeteria just as 5,000 other people were crushing through the doors to do the exact same thing. Now normally, the serving area at Old Faithful Cafeteria is laid out nicely. There are seperate stations for sandwiches, seafood, salads, pasta etc. Grab what you want and pay at the other end of the room. But throw 10,000 people into this space and you get utter chaos.

But I digress...The food itself is pretty good. There is a very wide selection of hot and cold entrees. Just don't go right after an Old Faithful eruption. Especially at 12:20PM.

Needing Advice

by Hona

I am a visiting Yellowstone for the first time in July w/my husband, who is also a first timer, and my kids, age 1,4,6, & 8. We are doing the motorhome thing for a week & need to know what is the best campground to stay at. There are alot to choose from. (we checked out the parks web site). We love to fish, so a campsite near a lake or stream would be ideal. I understand Yellowstone is very crowded in the summer, is there a campground that would possibly be less crowded than another? Would it be better to stay someplace like Jackson & take a couple days to yellowstone & a couple days to Grand Tetons? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Needing Advice

by EllenH

hi
was there a few times in may which is awesome and once in the summer which is very crowded you are correct. we stayed at a huge campground outside the park, felt like a parking lot so i hope you can do better then that but i have no advice for you there as the other times we stayed in hotels, the old faithful lodge being one of the coolest on earth. but the grand tetons are truly amazing, but we were in a vw vanagon, you are in a motorhome.....the road is straight uphill....we actually had to stop and let the bus rest. if there are campgrounds near yellowstone lake it is very beautiful. jackson hole is very crowded and very touristy in the summer. good luck with your trip.

Uncrowded camping

by walkerbay1

Hi,

We're planning a trip to Yellowstone in '07 and would be grateful for any info on camping in the park. We aren't crazy about the campgrounds where you can touch your neighbor and there is no privacy at all. We have two teenagers so something totally primitive probably wouldn't work. Thanks a lot for your help!!

RE: Uncrowded camping

by Homanded

Which part of the park are you interested in?

Up in Mammoth, on the way to Gardiner there is wonderful camping away from crowds and close to rivers.
West Yellostone as well.
Remember that you MUST REGISTER AND APPLY FOR PERMITS through the Park Service.
Ask them to provide you with the latest information on back country camping for whichever region you're interested in.
Here is a handy website: http://www.yellowstone-natl-park.com/camper.htm

Good luck and be careful, Yellowstone is truly wild and unspoiled in many places!

RE: Uncrowded camping

by Segolily

The last time we went we camped at Grant Village and Mammoth. While there were obviously people around us we never felt crowded. The sites were large enough not to be cramped. As far as I remember we just drove in, first come first serve, but maybe that has changed.

RE: Uncrowded camping

by cari888

Don't believe there is any private camping in Yellowstone in the public campgrounds. If you backpack back into "the wilds", primative camping, it would be different. The campgrounds fill up early. The north campground not quite as popular as others.

Yellowstone can be hot in the summer. A very unique place. Make sure you check out Old Faithful Lodge whether you stay there or not.
