The Little America section of Yellowstone National Park is located in the Lamar Valley along the Northeast Entrance Road (U.S. Route 212) in the Tower-Roosevelt region of the park.

Little America is near Specimen Ridge between the Tower-Roosevelt picnic area and the Slough Creek Campground entrance road. A detailed map of the park is available here. We've recently developed some great driving tips for the Lamar Valley, which are posted here.

In general, the best place to see wolves in Yellowstone National Park is the Lamar Valley. Early morning is best. For some great feedback from area experts about wolf watching in Yellowstone, check out the comments on this page: http://www.ohranger.com/yellowstone/oh-ranger.

Also, check out the Yellowstone Experiences page for more about watching wolves in the park.

As of February 22, 2010, a new federal law allows people who can legally possess firearms under applicable federal, state, and local laws, to legally possess firearms in Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.

It is the responsibility of visitors to understand and comply with all applicable state, local, and federal firearms laws before entering a national park.

Yellowstone encompasses parts of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Each state has different regulations and these are listed here.

Grand Teton regulations are listed here.

Wildlife viewing depends more upon location and time of day in July. The Lamar Valley area in the remote northeast corner of the park is the best place to see wildlife including bears and wolves. Because of the warm temperatures, the best time to view wildlife throughout the park is early morning and at dusk. Visitors in late July can still see wildflowers in bloom but the park's peak time for wildflowers occurs in spring during May and June.

Wildflowers, definitely. There's a ton of different colors to see in the park that time of year. Elk should be easy to spot around Mammoth Hot Springs. Bear and Wolves are elusive, but they're around, with a little luck and a good eye you could spot them. Or, if you're not lucky, there's the Bear and Wolf center in West Yellowstone where you can see them in a mini zoo type setting.

In West Yellowstone itself, you can't beat the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center, one of the few places around the park where you are gauranteed to see bears and wolves, they are uncommon sights in the park unless you are lucky or persistent. It's reasonably affordable and right in town for convenient visiting on your schedule.

http://www.grizzlydiscoveryctr.com/

If you have your vehicle and want to drive the park, it can take from 2 to 3 hours, or the entire day depending on your route and how many stops you make. The biggest tip here is, if you see a bunch of fellow visitors stopped along the road, there's probably wildlife nearby to see. Just park safely out of the traffic lane and remember not to get too close to the animals. You will almost definitely see bison/bufallo on your drive, and if you get up to Mammoth Hot Springs at the north end of the park, you're certain to see elk or moose. Bears, wolves and other animals like bighorn sheep can be trickier to spot.

Since I work in the park and do my sightseeing from my car, I can't recommend specific bus or snowcoach tours, but there are a lot of them accessible from West Yellowstone. The benefit of a guided tour is that the guides are extremely knowledgable and know how to spot animals and point them out.

While portions of this scenic route remain open year-round, weather permitting, the entire Going-to-the-Sun Road is open for vehicle access from mid-June to mid-September. Before and after this core summer season, sections of the road will be closed.
