I was just in Lamar Valley last week and I have to say it is the best place for beauty of mountains, meadows, and animals. It is beautiful.

If you want to see bison, this is one of a couple places to see them. In just a small slice of grassland, I counted 50 bison, and there must have been hundreds and hundreds. And it was great to see all the little bison close to their mothers.

Not much else I can add to what most have said. Just a beautiful area full of amazing views and wildlife! The bison were in the thousands (amateur estimate) and many, as you can see from the pictures, weren't shy.

We were on a tour that took us through this area and we saw more animals in that stretch of land than anywhere else while we were in the park. Take some time and drive through early in the morning or at dusk for the best sightings.

Once again, we hoped to spot some wolves in this valley, but we didn't hang out long enough. There was a bison kill so there were many hopefuls with their scopes set up waiting for the wolves to return and finish their feast.

Beautiful and serene. It felt like a midwest American safari. We did not have the opportunity to follow any of the trails, but the drive was amazing, and the facilities along the way we stopped at were sufficiently maintained for the middle of the wilderness.

I wish we could have spent an entire day just cruising the valley or even sitting and waiting on the animals. The valley itself is beautiful. Add the bison, Longhorns, valves and bears and you have a feast of Mother Nature.

We were so fortunate to see a wolf kill site the day we were at Lamar Valley. Initially we just saw some bison (lots of them) and antelope grazing and lying around. Then we noticed a dark pile with a bunch of ravens and magpies fluttering around. It then dawned on us that it was a wolf pack by a... More

One of the best places in Yellowstone N.P to view the wildlife, particularly birds and Bison amongst other animals.
