Yellowstone National Park

Plan and enrich your visit to Yellowstone National Park with the official National Park Service app and discover the stories behind the scenery.

Digitally explore the world's first national park—by map, by topic of interest, or through augmented reality. Find the information you need about visitor centers, events, lodging, places to eat and shop, and services throughout the park.

Explore

Discover park stories by exploring collections right on the home screen. Quickly delve into a topic that interests you, from the major resources of the park to going on an enriched self-guided walking tour.

Map

See where you are located within the park, find what is nearby, and show specific service locations on this enhanced map.

Saved

Plan your visit and reminder yourself of places, topics, tours, and events that interest you. The app will even notify you when you get near a saved location.

Collage

Calendar and Alerts

Get up-to-date information from the National Park Service about what is happening in Yellowstone, including ranger programs and road construction (requires cellular service for initial data and for updates).

Accessibility

Audio-described sites and alternative text for images. This app includes up-to-date accessibility information for facilities and some trails in the park.

Using the App

Cellular service within the park is extremely limited. In order to make use of the app while in Yellowstone, follow these simple steps before you arrive:
  1. Download the app.
  2. In the app, select the "Settings" option.
  3. Tap the choice "Download Offline Content."
By doing this, most of the app content will be available for use in the park (the exceptions being alert and calendar updates—accessing those items before leaving service will at least keep that information in the app). Even without cellular service, the app will be able to share your location on the map.

Download the App

The app is free and available on the App Store and on Google Play. The Android version of the app is still version 1, but the latest version is coming soon!
