Thrill in the beauty and
history of East Yellowstone

Centrally located between Yellowstone National Park’s East Gate and Cody, Wyoming, the Lodges of East Yellowstone make the perfect home base for fun and adventure in Northwestern Wyoming! Experience high mountain peaks, pristine mountain lakes, bison, elk, hiking, horseback riding, rafting, blue ribbon trout fishing, cookouts, and true Western hospitality – the Wyoming way.

Teddy Roosevelt referred to the area from the Park’s East entrance to Cody as “the most scenic 50 miles in America.” This area is known as East Yellowstone or as Wapiti Valley. The valley was shaped by the Shoshone River as it flowed out of Yellowstone National Park and is cradled by the strikingly beautiful volcanic rocks of the Absaroka Mountains.

Northwestern Wyoming has numerous scenic byways featuring dramatic views and rugged mountain ranges. Take a trip into Yellowstone National Park and explore all its wonders or spend a day in Cody at the 5 museums of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center. No matter which drives you choose, allow extra time to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds the Lodges of East Yellowstone!
