Billings National Parks

No trip to Billings would be complete without a visit to Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone was the first National Park in the United States. Established in 1872 by President Ulysses S. Grant, Yellowstone spans 3,741 square miles through Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. Enter into Yellowstone via The Beartooth Highway, located less than an hour from Billings. The drive is nearly as spectacular as the park itself. Yellowstone is home to grizzly bears, elk, bison, wolves, and other wildlife, as well as bald eagles and over 300 different species of birds. With several beautiful camping areas and endless miles of hiking trails, Yellowstone can be enjoyed in a day, a week, or longer.
