The Lamar Ranger station was previously the residence of Ranger Brown, but now serves as a center for emergency visitor services. And yes, the waters in Yellowstone National Park are warmer because of thermal activity from geysers and hot springs. To learn more about the park, read our online description of Yellowstone National Park or use the Oh, Ranger! ParkFinder app to gather more information.
