At Lamar Valley, mountain peaks gently rise from the distance and a small river flows at this picturesque spot inside Yellowstone National Park where wildlife abounds. Photographers bring their gear and wait for bears, wolves, elk, bison, and other wildlife to appear. You can fish along the river with a permit; anglers wrangle for cutthroat and rainbow trout here. To get the best out of this small gem in Yellowstone, take an organized wildlife excursion. By using our Yellowstone National Park day trip planning app, you can arrange your visit to Lamar Valley and other attractions in Yellowstone National Park.

Although the whole Yellow Stone park was beautiful, the Lamar valley and Hayden valley were more special in the sense that we saw a lot of wildlife here, hundreds of Bisons and a few elks. We also saw 4 grizzly bears feeding on the carcass of a bison and a coyote lurking by. We went on the trail that went to the Lamar river. Gorgeous place. People we fishing. We went knee down in water although it was slightly cold. Spending the sunset in the valleys was amazing. What a beautiful place. I would love to go there again if I get a chance.
Pretty much guaranteed to see some wildlife. Mostly Buffalo but you never know. Usually easy to tell when something is close to the road because a dozen cars will be on the side of the road looking.
