Find where the wild things are in Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is America's first national park and one of the most popular vacation destinations in the US. And it's easy to see why. Mud pots and thermal springs, waterfalls and mountains, Yellowstone is brimming with natural attractions. A magnet for nature lovers and adventurers, go hiking along 1 of hundreds of trails through the park, and spot bald eagle and falcons soaring over Old Faithful geyser. Get your Wyoming adventure off to a great start by booking a central Yellowstone National Park vacation rental, and maybe you'll meet some of the park's furry residents, such as moose, grizzly bear, and wolf.

Yogi Bear claims Yellowstone is smarter than your average vacation

The question should be, what can't you do in Yellowstone? America's best known park is a big draw to outdoors enthusiasts, who come to hike its many scenic trails. Go kayaking on Yellowstone Lake, or just hunker down in a woodland glade for a Yogi Bear style pic-a-nic, and maybe spot the resident grizzly bear, elk, or bison. In winter, the park is handed over to the snow sports crowd who come to ski the park's mountainous peaks. At the end of the day, kick back with a cold beer and watch the sunset over Old Faithful.

Yellowstone stays faithful to its geysers

Best known for its awe-inspiring views, craggy peaks an lively geysers, Yellowstone is Mother Nature at her best. One of the most popular visitor sights is Old Faithful, a huge live geyser which sees steamy eruptions reaching 180 feet. There are various viewing areas close to the geysers, or take a short hike up to Observation Point for the best views of Old Faithful. Another popular sight is the Grand Prismatic Spring in the Midway Geyser Basin. The largest hot spring in the US, its famous rainbow-hued waters is one of the most photographed spots in Yellowstone.

Wyoming's a winner in winter

Yellowstone National Park's climate is mostly split into 2 seasons, summer and winter. The busiest time in the park is during July and August, when Yellowstone National Park vacation rentals get snapped up. During the day, temperatures can reach the high 70s, but after dark it cools down rapidly, so pack layers. Winter in Wyoming is not for the fainthearted. The park sees heavy snowfall from December through to March, attracting the ski enthusiasts to resorts like Jackson Hole. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are the quietest and have variable weather, but offer great wildlife-spotting opportunities.

Yellowstone National Park, it's not just for pic-a-nicking bears

Spanning nearly 3,500 square miles in the rugged northwest corner of Wyoming, Yellowstone National Park is little over an hour's drive from Jackson. It's a major attraction for outdoors enthusiasts, and hikers and climbers come from all over the world to conquer its many trails and peaks. For some of the best views of Yellowstone, book a guided hike up to the peak of Mount Washburn. A moderate 6-7 mile trail, it offers incredible views of Wyoming. Despite what Yogi Bear says, Yellowstone is not only for picnicking bears. Aside from the grizzlies, you're likely to spot bison, bobcat, and elk.
