Cody Parks & Gardens
As the first and oldest National Park in the world, Yellowstone's 2 million-plus acres are visited by more than 4 million people annually. Home to more geothermal activity (geysers and hotsprings) than the rest of the world combined, other natural attractions include Yellowstone River's Grand Canyon, fossil forests, and Yellowstone Lake. The abundant species of wildlife includes grizzly bears, bison, trumpeter swans, wolves, and more. Choose from a long list of available activities, or view the park's most popular geyser, Old Faithful.
Shoshone National Forest extends north from Lander, Wyoming, to the Montana border. Yellowstone National Park is on the forest's western border. Popular recreational activities include fishing, hiking and camping.
