Best Place to See Wolves in Yellowstone?

Post by Celestial-Howl » Fri Mar 06, 2015 11:23 am

Since I discovered WolfQuest, I've always wanted to visit Yellowstone. And now I am! My Grandparents and Aunt planned a two week trip in June (Just me! No siblings!), we are staying at Old Faithful Inn. We are going to see a lot of stuff, but I REALLY want to see a wolf. Anyone know some good locations and times during June to Wolf watch?

Apparently Lamar Valley is a good place to see wolves. I haven't been to Yellowstone, but I know there are people on here who have and who have seen wolves, so I'll let them verify that.
The Yellowstone Association does provide guided (albeit expensive) tours.

Koa is correct: Lamar Valley is the best place to see wolves. That's where I saw them on my trip. You might also try Hayden Valley. Make sure you go early in the morning (I'm talking pre-sunrise) or in the evening. That's when wolves are most active. Don't forget your binoculars!

Yes, binoculars are a must. Good thing I wake up at the crack of dawn!
