Yes, it's expensive, BUT you really do get what you pay for. This is a lodging and learning program which included rooms/cabins at Mammoth, Old Faithful and Lake Yellowstone areas (all private bath), most meals, and transportation in the restored old Yellow Touring Cars/bus all over the Park for four days (five nights). The group is small (max nine, but... More

Did the 2015 Lamar Wildlife Getaway - and truly appreciated every moment. The instructors were knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good experience. They explained and pointed out things I would never have seen on my own. Now having done it, I wonder what I've missed out on when I've visited other National... More

After many years of exploring Yellowstone with family, friends and on my own I finally signed up for a Yellowstone Association Institute group program. It was well-organized, full of great options for daily activities and great fun to meet a very wide variety of people. The evening programs were great and the food was very tasty. I can understand why... More

Use their services if you have never been to Yellowstone and want to avoid the crowds but see the area. Book a tour and it will include rooms inside the Park, van pickup each morning, and various hikes/observation stops. We saw everything but a bear.

This visitor center is a perfect place to begin your visit to Yellowstone. In addition to valuable information about the Park, it has quality souvenirs for all ages and my favorite to purchase Yellowstone related gifts.

I hope this review is helpful to future travelers. I know that I didn't find very much information about the winter lodging and learning trips beforehand. Introduction: Our family of 5 took a week long winter package that included lodging (mammoth/old faithful), all breakfasts, lunches and one group dinner. It also included transportation, drivers, and an amazing guide. Our guide... More

I am an ongoing member of this wonderful institution. It is all about educating visitors to all of the natural aspects of Yellowstone National Park. A wealth of books and brochures are available at their many park locations. They have guided tours in both winter and summer. I have visited the park for over 25 times, never tire of the... More

The Yellowstone Association sponsors an amazing range of classes and leaders. We six booked a guide (and small bus) for the day. Splitting the cost, it was a good value and a wonderful way to discover special spots.

This organization was recommended by a family member and it certainly paid off for our party of four. Ted was our guide and he did an amazing job of spotting and setting up the spotting scope so we felt up close and personal to the animals. We were able to see long horn sheep, coyotes, mountain goats, a momma moose... More
