About Yellowstone National Park
The United States’ flagship national park, Yellowstone, was established way back in 1872 and since 1978 has also been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Best known for its geysers, such as Old Faithful, Yellowstone is in fact a huge national park with countless other attractions, warranting a stay of several nights at least.
RV’ers have numerous choices for staying at Yellowstone National Park in the campgrounds, or staying in one of the National Forests outside of the park boundary. Old Faithful Inn is the accommodation of choice for many visitors coming here by car. Built so that it had a clear view of the famous Old Faithful Geyser this wonderful old hotel is constructed of lodgepole pine and is the largest log hotel in the world.
Yellowstone has so many highlights that it can be difficult to know where to start! Must-sees include Old Faithful, of course, and Grand Geyser; the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone; Petrified Forest; Roaring Mountain; Mammoth Hot Springs; Fort Yellowstone; and Artist Paint Pots, but these are just a few of the major attractions within the nearly 3,500 square miles of park.
