Current Weather & Forecasts for the Mammoth Region

     Mammoth Hot Springs is considered the nerve center of Yellowstone National Park and was the first area to be developed by man in the park in the late 1800s. At an elevation of 6239 feet, Mammoth Village is nestled in a small opening at the north end of the park with peaks and ridges from the Gallatin, Washburn, and Absoroka mountain ranges towering in the background. It is the location of the park headquarters and home to the historic Fort Yellowstone.

     Many of the buildings you will see in Mammoth date back to the early 1900s and were formerly occupied by the military during their mission to help protect Yellowstone in it's early years. Historic buildings aren't the only thing you'll see in the Mammoth Region however. The Mammoth area is also home to numerous herds of elk that frequent the nutritious grazing grounds around the small village, posing for pictures as visitors eagerly capture their memories on camera.

The geological features that this area of the park is famous for are the Mammoth Hot Springs and Terraces. Built up over thousands of years and dating back to the last glacial period, the terraces tower above Mammoth Village displaying their magnificence.

Swan Lake Flat, Boiling RiverUndine Falls, military history, and miles upon miles of hiking trails are just a few of the features that attract visitors to this amazing region in the northern part of the park. Don't delay in adding activities from the Mammoth Hot Springs Region to your itinerary to make for an even more fulfilling and memorable vacation.
