Cellular & WiFi
Cellular service is limited in Yellowstone. Cell towers at Mammoth Hot Springs, West Yellowstone, Old Faithful, Grant Village, Lake Village, and Mount Washburn provide service to most developed areas and to the North and West entrances. Check with your provider to verify coverage. During summer the number of users can overwhelm cellular circuits resulting in an inability to send or receive calls, text, or use cellular data. Texting is usually the most effective means of communication in the park. Cellular service is available in most nearby communities and along some of the major highways leading to the park. However, areas without coverage exist throughout the region.
Free WiFi is available at the Albright Visitor Center in Mammoth Hot Springs. Wireless internet access can be purchased at the Mammoth Hotel Lounge, the Old Faithful Snow Lodge, Lake Lodge Cafeteria, and Grant Village Lodge buildings. Connectivity is limited and may not be available at all times.
Powell Lock provides locksmith services in Yellowstone.
In case of an emergency, dial 911.

All clinics are open to the public and are equipped for most medical emergencies as well as for routine care.
