Come to Yellowstone Country, “America’s First Playground!” Located in south central Montana, Yellowstone Country offers three entrances to Yellowstone Park, the incredible Beartooth Highway, four destination ski resorts including Bridger Bowl, Big Sky, Moonlight Basin, Red Lodge, world-class fishing, and an unbeatable combination of rugged mountains and large, open spaces. And, don’t miss our unique, individual communities.

This is the heart of Yellowstone Park tourism and recreation. Yellowstone Park is home to 2.2 million acres of natural geysers and bubbling paint pots, with a rich variety of wildlife including elk, bison, bears, and wolves.

Take an extra day in Yellowstone Country to try something new. Fish a major river or countless Yellowstone tributaries. Hike or bike or ride an ATV to explore a mountain trail. Ride a whitewater raft down a roaring Yellowstone river or try a horseback adventure.

Gardiner, Montana offers the only year-round entrance to Yellowstone Park. Enter Yellowstone’s mystical winter world of Yellowstone Park recreation with a Park snowcoach or snowmobile tour. Don’t miss the thrill of world-class downhill skiing or the quiet side of a cross-country trail.
