Because Yellowstone is about wilderness, wildlife and geysers, not crowded diners
So you finally made it to the American Serengeti - Yellowstone National Park.
YPB is all about the outdoor eating and there are LOTS of designated places you can stop and enjoy the wilderness (and provided you Leave No Trace there are hundreds of others on hiking trails through the park).
Check out the map below (click to enlarge).
Right now, our absolute favorites are at: 5, 26, 30, 34, and 35, but remember, when you order a Yellowstone picnic basket, we include an insider's list of
ALL the very best Yellowstone picnic spots we can recommend!
#34 is my own family’s Bestest Place for Picnics; What beautiful memories of how much my little girl used to love Love LOVE being at the place we used to call ‘the Top Of the World’. Shh. Don't tell her it was just Dunraven Trailhead
Checklist- did you bring:
Don’t get closer than 25 yards, 100yrds if it’s a bear!
The heat of the day can feel intense in a park summer
Cold weather jacket
Yep, really – it cools way on down at night time.
