With your motorhome or pop-up camper rental in Yellowstone National Park, you'll get to explore as you see fit. Yellowstone National Park covers nearly 3,500 square miles of land, and it crosses into three different states: Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. Whether you're a regular at Yellowstone National Park or it's your first visit, this park provides countless reasons to explore, including a trail for a different perspective of the Grand Prismatic Spring, the renovated historic Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel and the erupting Steamboat Geyser, not to mention the seasonal changes in the flora and fauna. Don't forget to check out Old Faithful! The famous geyser erupts on a regular basis, usually every 44 to 125 minutes or so.
There are other national parks in this part of the country. Grand Teton National Park is in Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone. Due to the higher elevations at this park, it doesn't get too hot here, making for comfortable summer temperatures. Try one of the many trails in Grand Teton, such as Forks of Cascade Canyon, nearly 15 miles and featuring almost 3,000 feet of elevation change. For something not so strenuous, check out the exhibits at the Jackson Hole Historical Society & Museum in nearby Jackson Hole.
Farther north of Yellowstone, and straddling the U.S.-Canadian border, is Glacier National Park in Montana. A region of unparalleled beauty, this park has over 700 miles of hiking trails and features the Going-to-the-Sun Road. While visiting Glacier National Park, you may see wildlife that includes elk, mountain lions, and grizzly bears.
