Best and worst
times to visit in
Yellowstone National Park

Mid- to late-September

This is the best all around time for a visit as the weather is pleasant and the tourist count is relatively light.

July and August

These are the two busiest months. Be forewarned, traffic jams are common on both the roads and the pedestrian sightseeing boardwalks.


The least desirable season is winter. It can be quite cold and many roads are snow blocked.

If your time is short
