Upcoming Facilities Improvements
In our efforts to continually improve and care for the facilities we’re privileged to operate, there will be several projects in progress during the 2015 summer season. With such a short window for accomplishing this type of work, it often must be done while guests are in-house. We regret any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.
Old Faithful Inn- Roofing and exterior staining. There will be daily work on the West Wing and above the dining room between 8am and 7pm, though any work around guest rooms will be completed by 4:30pm.
Lake Lodge- Roofing and stabilization. The stabilization project begun during the summer of 2014 will continue until completion in 2015. Roofing project will also occur during the hours of 8am and 6 pm daily. Fencing and heavy equipment will be visible outside of the lodge.
Fishing Bridge R.V. Park will be undergoing the initial phases of an improvement plan beginning the summer of 2015. Initially, work will take place on the lower loops of the RV park until mid-June. No work will occur in occupied sites. To access reserved RV sites, guests will need to drive past the construction area.
Canyon Area Lodging Redevelopment- Construction of 5 new lodges continues in 2015. Exterior finishing and road work will occur on and around three standing lodge structures, while 2 new lodges will be constructed during the summer. While the work area is closed to the public, guests traveling to/from some of the available lodging in the area will notice the fencing and exterior of the work area.
What You Can Expect
Yellowstone National Park is an authentic American experience, which should keep every guest and visitor deeply engaged and spending time exploring the park. With this in mind, we do not have televisions, wireless internet or radios in the rooms or cabins, but telephones are available in most hotel and lodge rooms. Cabins do not have telephones.
The daily high temperatures in Yellowstone rarely exceed the low-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Because “it’s a dry heat,” hotels and cabins do not have air conditioning; however, fans are provided. Accessible accommodations are available. Please note that all park accommodations are non-smoking.
