Where is Yellowstone National Park?  Yellowstone National Park is a national park located mostly in the state of Wyoming, in the United States.  The park is also partially located in Montana and Idaho.

The park covers more than 3,460 square miles, including mountains, lakes, rivers, and is mostly known for its wildlife and geothermal features.  Yellowstone is a great place to see animals.

The geology of the park is truly spectacular, and is what attracts the many annual visitors.  Yellowstone Lake covers the Yellowstone Caldera, the largest super volcano on the planet.  (A little unsettling to us living in Montana!)  Half of the world’s geothermal features are in Yellowstone, making it a popular place for visiting geysers such as Old Faithful.

Yellowstone National Park has become extremely accessible to visitors, with many local airports and entrances to the park.  Everyone should make the trip to visit Yellowstone National Park at least once in their lifetime.
