Good viewing for wildlife, we got their at sunrise and found a group watching a wolf pack. Very interesting people to hang out with. They knew all the wolves and were happy to share.

Great place to view wildlife! Early morning and late in the day are the best times. Bring a camera and binoculars.

The Bison were on both sides of the road and crossing the road. Bulls, cows & calves all around. They are not always so close, so we were lucky. They don't put on much of a show, but up close they are truly impressive animals.

The lamar valley is beautiful but not special. There are similar views inside yellowstone in other places. There are a lot of bisons there but as long as you stay in Yellowstone for more than a day it is almost impossible to not see bisons even if you are not visiting lamar valley

They no long have the old original stage coaches. That was a disappointment. Lots of buffalo, birds and people fishing. Stage ride was cheap. I heard the chuck wagon was the way to go. Great meal?? Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

This is well worth the trip. If you want to see wildlife, this should be your #1 destination. No wonder it's called the Serengetti of America. Be prepared to leave well before dawn as bison will sometimes lie in the road to warm up when the sun comes up sometimes blocking the roadway so you can't pass through. There's no... More

Plenty of Bison to visit hear. The Valley is beautiful to drive through and has ample "pull off" spots to capture that perfect picture to show Aunt Tilda when you get home. We actually saw a bear trudging up the hillside about 200 yards away on one of our stops - another highlight. Don't miss this part of the park
