Yellowstone National Park is probably one of the most beautiful and amazing natural wonders in America. It’s also a fun, entertaining and educational destination for families with children. There’s so much history associated with this natural wonder, plus camping at Yellowstone is fun for everyone.
Yellowstone National Park was home to a wide variety of tribes of American Indians for over 11,000 years. Today researchers still uncover unique and priceless Indian artifacts in and around the park. They have surveyed over one thousand archaeological sites in recent years. The surrounding town of West Yellowstone has several museums that offer tourists an up-close look at some of these priceless Indian artifacts.
What a great opportunity to educate yourself and your children as you read about the history of the land. Unique tribes have dwelled there over the centuries leaving their mark on the land and history itself; tribes like the Crow and Blackfoot Indians. Many of the souvenir shops in West Yellowstone sell authentic Indian jewelry and clothing so you can take home a little bit of the history and folklore of Yellowstone.
Most tourists enjoy visiting the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center located in the town of West Yellowstone. This museum is open every day for live viewings of wolves and grizzly bears in their natural habitat. The kids will learn so much during this visit. There is also an IMAX theater in town where a film that’s all about nature is shown on a six-story IMAX screen. Your family will love this little side adventure.
In and around Yellowstone National Park, visitors often see hundreds of species of birds and mammals, some of which are endangered. The best part of your amazing journey into the beauty and grandeur of Yellowstone is enjoying this “Natural Wonder” with your family.
An important part of your adventure involves where you stay. Chain hotels don’t give you the earthy feel of such a great wilderness adventure. Many tourists love Yellowstone Holiday because it increases their great outdoors experience. They enjoy spending their vacation at Yellowstone in a quaint log cabin situated right on pristine Hebgen Lake.
A campground on Lake Hebgen has an attractive appeal to many vacationers because they are so close to the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park and even closer to the town of West Yellowstone. All this and an incredible view of the Hebgen Mountains with Lake Hebgen right out your front door.
Vacationers enjoy being in such a prime location. Yellowstone Holiday offers 24 cozy cabins that will sleep from 4 to 7 people and 36 big-rig RV sites for campers. Relax with your family on your front porch with a cup of coffee and breathe in the fresh morning air that drifts in from Hebgen Lake and the nearby mountains.
Hebgen Lake Marina is within walking distance and Yellowstone Holiday even has its own marina and boat dock where you can enjoy sipping a cold beverage or fishing from the dock. There is also a General Store where you can pick up needed supplies for your fishing trip or picnic outing. Fishing at Hebgen Lake is always outstanding and the lake is full of large rainbow trout. You will enjoy grilling these on your grill once you return to your cabin.
Though log cabins at Hebgen Lake are plentiful, the quaint rustic cabins such as you will find at Yellowstone Holiday are the most popular, so it’s important to book ahead of time. July is usually the busiest time of the year but any of the summer months are absolutely perfect for exploring the amazing beauty and wonder of Yellowstone National Park.
