Trip Report 5 nights in/around Yellowstone w/ kids

Jump to last reply

Will try to keep this brief. Flew into Bozeman 2 1/2 hour ride to Red Lodge, Mt. Stayed overnight at the Comfort Inn - mediocre rooms awesome service with decent breakfast. Had an indoor pool so the kids loved it. Walked to town had some God awful food at Red Lodge Pizza. If you must go there stick to burgers - NOTHING else, you'll thank me. Candy Emporium was cute.

Next day did the Beartooth Highway about 2+ hours with a few stops on the way including the Top of the World Store - cute store gross bathroom. Beartooth Highway is amazing and no one got car sick. Had lunch in Cooke City at Buns and Beds - again stick to burgers - ribs not so much.

Entered Yellowstone through the NE to drive through Lamar Valley. Drive was mid day saw hundreds of bison - super cool. Checked in at Roosevelt Lodge (2 nights) got our Frontier Cabin w/ private bathroom. Small but clean and private bathroom. Drove to Mammoth to check out the sites and get the kids on the Jr. Ranger program. Saw elk and listen to a ranger talk about animal safety got some ice cream. Ranger said the terrace was hot and dry suggested some kid friendly (as in shade and not eons long) trails - decided on Wraith. Easy breezey no complaints took a one way road which passed us by more bison and dropped us off near petrified tree (boring). Had dinner at Lodge and called it a day.
