What to Bring

Wondering what to bring?

Yellowstone Park is full of beautiful views and opportunities for adventure. To make the most of your visit, you’ll definitely want to pack a few extra items in addition to your travel basics.

We’ve prepared a handy packing list for you to use when filling your luggage, and you can easily download it below.  Here are a few things to consider:

  • There’s a saying that if you want the weather to change in Yellowstone, wait about 5 minutes. Locals are experts at layering—and it’s a good idea for you, too. Wear lightweight base layers but have a jacket or hoodie on hand.
  • Bring (or buy!) a hat. It’ll protect your skin, hide bedhead, and keep the beautiful Yellowstone sunshine out of your eyes simultaneously.
  • Comfort comes first around these parts. We recommend you bring your comfiest jeans, softest tee-shirts and shoes that keep your feet in top shape. That way you’ll be able to stay on the go longer and make the most of your West Yellowstone getaway.
