Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park Reviews
One certainty in YNP - you will always see wildlife in Lamar Valley. The usual rules regarding sighting (sunrise/sunset) apply. If you are interested in photography be warned that unless the animals are crossing the road you will need telephoto lens for the Kodak moment. We saw deer too and there were plenty of fishing along key stretches of the creek.
We were here yesterday at 7am. While watching a grizzly, we noticed two wolves walking across the street from the parking lot. One of the best places to see wildlife in Yellowstone. You have to come dawn or dusk, when the wildlife are out looking for food.
One of the best places to see animals in Yellowstone. Bison, bears, elk, deer, moose, antelope. They are all here. Beautiful part of the park as well.
Good place to spot wolves, bears, mountain goats. You need a scope or high quality binoculars to see anything. The sights are nice too.
It was amazing to see the Bisons, Black Bear, Grizzlies, antelopes in their wild habitat. Great job by the rangers in ensuring these animals were not hammered by visitors
