It's always a good idea to be bear aware, but it's best to check with the park before your arrival to see if they recommend bear spray. Before you head out, check out these articles:

Yellowstone's Bears

Minimizing the Dangers of a Bear Encounter

If you do decide to purchase bear spray, don't forget to recycle your canister before you head home!

Early May can be a iffy time for roads. According to the NPS site, "weather permitting" roads from Canyon Village to Fishing Bridge and out the East Entrance should be open to vehicles. The West Entrance should also be open at that time since it's slated to re-open around April 15th. The South Entrance doesn't open until May 13th. Also, Dunraven Pass, the road that links Tower Junction with Canyon Village doesn't open up until later in the season. Great places to hit up in the park include:

  • Old Faithful
  • Norris Geyser Basin
  • Elk Park
  • Mammoth Hot Springs
  • Gardiner, MT (North Entrance Town)
  • Fossil Tree
  • Lamar Valley
  • Cooke City, MT (Just outside the NE Entrance. Some great food!
  • Upper and Lower Falls
  • Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
  • Hayden Valley
  • Yellowstone Lake
  • and Cody, WY

If you were coming later in the season, I'd suggest Dunraven Pass (in the park) or the Beartooth Highway (just NE of the park, starting past Cooke City). Some excellent views on both of them. 

I hope this helps!

The regions North of the Yukon River, all the way to the Arctic, are the worst for mosquitos in general.  The worst time of year to go is in July, however you are likely to encounter them as soon temperatures remain above freezing for a couple of weeks.

You can bring repellant, but the stuff that repels the best is bad for your skin and clothes, and will contain a measured amount of deet.  Since I personally prefer to not to crop dust myself, you can purchase netting to go around your hat or head, and maintain long sleeves and pants throughout the day. 

If you still get bit, don't scratch!
