11 Yellowstone Lodging Options for Campers, Spa-Goers, and Everyone in Between

America’s first national park celebrates a birthday this month. March marks 150 years since Yellowstone was named a national park.

Located largely in the northwest corner of Wyoming, the park’s more than 2 million acres span active geysers like Old Faithful, roaming bison, the Yellowstone river, deep canyons, and more. Its geothermal areas “contain about half the world’s active geysers,” according to the National Park Service.

The park saw its busiest year on record in 2021, when more than 4.8 million visitors flocked to its gates for whitewater rafting, fishing, biking, and more. For the first time ever, the park welcomed more than a million visitors in a single month last July.

Modern alpine luxury abounds at the new Montage Big Sky resort, from guest-room views of the snowcapped Spanish Peaks to the indoor pool, where you can relax before or after a rejuvenating facial at the spa. Rooms and suites are bedecked in furs and stone-colored furnishings, not to mention opulent tubs for a soak.
