Almost as much beautiful wildlife as Lamar Valley. As with most of the hot spots in Yellowstone. Go as early as possible to enjoy the scene. Bring your binoculars and telephoto lens

We understand from having been here in the park for several days that Bison can be found in many places; and indeed, we have seen them in many areas of the park. However, the third week of May when we drove south on the Grand...More

We visited the park May 14-18, 2018. We saw bison, we saw birds, we saw a grizzly mother and her 2 year old cub playing in the snow! This was in the evening of Tuesday, May 15th. We came here every morning (right after sunrise)...More

If wildlife is what you’re after, this is the area to head to. We encountered what seemed to be hundreds of bison roaming here and with the backdrop of the valley’s open range…it was a spectacular sight. Along with herds of buffalo, we witnessed groups...More

This lovely valley is verdant and green and a great place for spotting bison. Definitely worth the time to drive the stretch of Park Loop Road between Fishing Bridge and Canyon Village.

We visited the beautiful Hayden Valley in August and saw many bisons. While the bison viewing was very special, traffic was also memorable but in a bad way. Many visitors didn't use the provided pullouts for wildlife viewing and drove slowly while taking photos. Please...More

Any place in Yellowstone can surprise you anytime. Be prepared and look for other parked cars (rather than looking for wildlife itself.) Somebody has already spotted it for you.

I would imagine that the best viewing times are early morning and dusk when their prey is also active. Keep in mind that September, being later in the season, is possibly when bears are getting ready for hibernation... More
