Yellowstone National Park

West Thumb Information Station

The West Thumb Information Station dates back to 1925 and originally served as the West Thumb Ranger Station. The log structure provides an ideal example of historic architecture typical of Yellowstone?s early buildings. The style was immediately idolized, and several other national parks across the country exhibit similar log buildings. The more modern and enclosed breezeway was added in 1966. Today, the station is open daily during summer season as an interesting visitor stop.

Open daily beginning May 23? Sept. 30: 9 am?5 pm


Located just east of the junction of the Old Faithful / South Entrance Road and the Bridge Bay / Fishing Bridge / Lake Road. In the West Thumb Geyser Basin area on the shore of Yellowstone Lake.
