Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park Reviews
If you're looking to get away from the crowds and see some amazing wildlife, you need to head to the Lamar Valley! We saw bison, coyotes, birds, and much more. Be careful driving, the bison often wander into the roads! We visited in June 2016, and the animals were stunning. There were plenty of wolf watchers and birdwatchers in the valley. The main roads are flat enough for a sedan-sized car. Some of the dirt roads require better traction.
One of the best places in the Yellowstone national park to actually see a lot of wild life below are the most imp things to keep in mind to view wild life: 1. Best time - Go either really early in the morning or evening 2. Keep a good binocular handy 3. If you see a car stopped by the road side mostly likely they spotted something so stop and and check with them 4. Seek help to spot wild life from ppl who are sitting by roads with big spotters. They are tourists too and mostly likely they would love to show you what they saw. 5. Stay safe and within bounds
Worth the drive. Stunning location, much more scenic than Hayden Valley. Less traffic and more wildlife. To be able to see wolves aim to be up to this area before 8am, the earlier the better. Slough creek is the best spot to spot the wolves. We saw a variety of wildlife from bison to pronghorns, coyote.
I love both of the Valleys inside of Yellowstone, there is so much wildlife, you'll end up seeing mainly elk, bison, and deer. They wander around at their own leisure, leave them alone and everyone will have a good time.
This is the area where you will see more wild life. We were able to see black bears, bisons and elks on this road. I only wished people would respect the wild life more because I saw several people within 10 feet of a herd of bisons. 2 families actually got out of their car and walked to a mama black bear with her 2 cubs. I’m glad no one got mauled, but everyone should be aware we are in the wild life, not a circus
