There is something for everyone in Yellowstone. We camped just south of the entrance an drove in to explore this area for 5 days. Along the River are many turn outs to enjoy the water an wild life. Pack a picnic lunch an bring bug spray ! Nature bites too

Everything about the park is amazing. The Yellowstone River weaves throughout the park and is full of geysers and waterfalls. The whole park is really something everyone should experience atleast once.

It was like no place I have ever travel, moose was grazing in the river. Just beautiful but a place that was not crowd at the time . A place where you wish you could visit each weekend because of the scenic view

If you take the drive from South Dakota towards West Yellowstone, the river meanders throughout your route in many places. It is gorgeous in the winter, patches of ice, snow and flowing river.

I'm sure during the summer, when all of the park is accessible, the river experience is much more spectacular. However, we visited during the winter when many areas and aspects of the park are absolutely spectacular. Unfortunately, since only a few parts of the river are accessible in winter, it was lost amongst the more accessible attractions.

Beautiful! Loved driving the Grand Loop Road along the river. It was so lovely we found it hard not to stop at every pullout to snap yet another photo! When you get to the area with the views of the upper and lower falls, be sure to take both North Rim Drive and South Rim Road. They both have places... More

The only thing that was negative about this was the government shutdown. Public lands means government control. We did get to see the falls and travel along the Yellowstone River. The snow and cold made it especially nice and a great photo op.
