West Yellowstone Overview
Visit West Yellowstone, the west entrance and gateway community to Yellowstone National Park. Surrounded by three national forests, blue-ribbon trout streams, and beautiful mountain lakes, West Yellowstone features lodging, dining, shopping, and family-friendly activities year-round.
This small, fun-filled town is Yellowstone National Park’s busiest gateway and a mecca for year-round outdoor recreation enthusiasts. Summer finds visitors fly fishing, river rafting, mountain biking, trail rides and hiking while those in the winter come to enjoy cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and touring snowcoaches. Wildlife watching is a year-round activity, while great shopping can be found along the boardwalks of the west gate to the world’s first national park.
