Yellowstone Park KOA

Area Attractions

Yellowstone Park has got to be the scenery capital of the world. Keep in mind that Yellowstone National Park is 2.2 million acres of scenery, wildlife and geologic wonders and you really need to plan for 2-4 full days at a minimum to really do it justice. You can take it at your own pace though. You can drive the loops in your RV, car or motorcycle and just stop at the major sites or you can go all out and do some backcountry hiking or maybe just anything in between … it’s up to you!

Teton National Park is also only 50 some miles away, and day trips to that area are also very easy and it just makes sense to use Yellowstone Park KOA as your base camp for the region.

There is so much outside of Yellowstone that really needs to be highlighted but there is so much to do that it’s almost impossible to mention it all. Here are some of our “must do” recommendations.

Old Faithful Geyser

Old Faithful Geyser

Undoubtedly the world's most publicized geyser (although it is neither the largest, highest nor most regular one in Yellowstone), Old Faithful is aptly named. Old Faithful has been remarkably consistent. Unlike most thermal features in the park, its heights, intervals and length of play have changed very little in 100 years. Old Faithful does not erupt every hour on the hour; however, it does erupt 18 to 21 times every day. Check out the Old Faithful WebCam!.

Gold Rush Ghost Towns

Gold Rush Ghost Towns

All of Montana has the deepest pride and affection for Virginia City. No more colorful pioneer mining camp ever existed. Dramatic tales of the early days in this vicinity are legion. Rich placer diggings were discovered in Alder Gulch in the spring of 1863 and the stampede of gold seekers and their parasites was on! Sluices soon lined the gulch and various "cities" blossomed forth as trading and amusement centers for free handed miners. Virginia City, the best known of these and the sole survivor, became the Capitol of the Territory. Read More
