Petter,

Certain campgrounds can hold larger size tents! If there is a specific campground you are interested, give the Reservation line a ring and they can tell you whether it will fit or not. For more specific information on an exact campground, please call (307) 344-7311.

If you're going into the backcountry, be sure to carefully examine the Backcountry Camping Guide. This will tell you where all the campgrounds are located, as well as what permits you will need before heading out.  

Enjoy your trip and be sure to come back to Oh, Ranger's Facebook Page and post pictures of your adventure! Happy Trails!

You only have to pay one vehicle/entrance fee when entering either Yellowstone or Grand Teton. It's advised you keep your receipt on you for when you take the motorcycle off the truck bed and cruise around the park. For more information on Grand Teton call (307) 739-3300; for more information on Yellowstone call (307) 344-7381.

Yellowstone National Park is home to one of the largest petrified forests in the world. These trees, including petrified redwood, were fossilized by volcanic ash and dirt millions of years ago and located in the northern portion of the park. The National Park Service serves a great historical and descriptive account by F.H. Knowlton (USGS) of the fossil forests including black & white photos of the upright petrified tree stumps. 

Read through the field notes of Yellowstone National Park to learn more about the geology and paleontology of the region.

Another interesting tidbit--National Geographic News ran a story a few years back about uncovering fossils of the most primitive primate near (not within park boundaries) Yellowstone.

Effects of the Return of the Gray Wolf Hunt near Yellowstone

Last night on PBS NewsHour, I saw a great segment about the return of the gray wolf hunt in Montana and Idaho, just along the borders of Yellowstone National Park.

The wolves of Yellowstone have been the subject of much attention in the region. They're adored by many park visitors and wildlife enthusiasts, but disliked by ranchers, who say their livestock are in danger because of the return of these predators.
