Driving times within Yellowstone

Jump to last reply

We are spending 3 nights in yellowstone arriving from the North and doing Mammoth on the way in. For convenience on arrival and departure we have reservations in the Lake Village (Old faithful area was all booked in Feb and this works well when we leave to go East across Wyoming). On our first full day we plan to spend it in the Old Faithful area, including dinner and night time lights on the geysers. My concern is driving back at night. The map I have says it is only 39 miles between the OF and Lake, and the speed limit is 45mph, but the map says it will take 1 hour and 45 minutes to drive it! Does it really take that long?? Our last day we are doing the canyon area which works well with being at Lake.

I know we could try to get a cancellation in the old faithful area, but we are 2 couples which would mean basically 1 night at Lake, then OF (if we can get 2 rooms) and then back to Lake. Thats a lot of changing rooms.

So if anyone has experience/insight driving at night from Old Faithful your comments would be appreciated. I would think traffic would be less at that time if that is what is impacting the time estimates. I know in August, sunset will be at about 8pm.

Thanks for any help.
