Mammoth Hot Springs Area      Yellowstone National Park Map
Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park is just 5 miles south of the North Entrance at Gardiner Montana.  Its main attraction is the incredible Mammoth Hot Springs, but there are many other features and attractions that make Mammoth a very special and popular place for vacationers to visit while touring Yellowstone National Park. 
(See Mammoth Hot Springs Map at bottom of page.)

Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park
This is "Classic Mammoth Hot Springs" with an elk crossing the street in the middle of town!

Mammoth is the Yellowstone Park Headquarters, so there is basically a small town here.  Visitors enjoy eating at the restaurant, or staying at the famous Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel.  There is also a visitor center and general store that travelers enjoy.  The Mammoth Campground is open all year long, and is a popular place to camp.  The main attraction however is the amazing Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces.

Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel
Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, Yellowstone National Park
The Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel is an historic icon of Yellowstone National Park and is a very popular place for visitors to stay while vacationing in Yellowstone.

Mammoth Campground
Cow elk with calf, Mammoth Campground, Yellowstone National Park
This photo was taken in the Mammoth Campground.  Cow elk often give birth to their calves right in the Mammoth Campground to try to protect them from predators.

Mammoth Campground is one of the most popular Yellowstone National Park campgrounds.  Not only is it in an ideal location for visitors who want to explore the northern section of Yellowstone Park, but it is the only Yellowstone Park campground that is open all year long.  Therefore, it is extremely popular for those folks who are visiting Yellowstone during the non-summer seasons.

And one thing that you'll notice about this campground is that during the spring of the year, cow elk actually come into the campground and give birth to their calves!  This is to avoid predators that frequent the area.

For more information on the Mammoth Campground, click here.

 
Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park.
The town of Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park is nestled in some amazing scenery.

Elk sparring, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park
There are Elk!
Besides the amazing Mammoth Hot Springs, there is another really incredible feature of Mammoth, and that's the elk.  There is a resident herd that hangs out all year long, so Mammoth is a great place to see them.

During the spring of the year, many of the cow elk actually give birth to their calves right in town or in the campground because they feel safer from predators there.  In the fall, during the rut, you can actually witness two 
bulls fighting for a harem right in the middle of town!  It's really an amazing sight to see! 
The photo to the left is of two young bull elk sparring outside the Mammoth Church!

Bull elk bugling, Yellowstone National Park
During the fall mating season, known as "the rut", huge bull elk bugle at the top of their lungs.  This is a very common occurrence at Mammoth and is a thrill to see and hear.

The Most Famous Elk In Yellowstone:  "Elk #6"
Elk #6, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park
Elk #6 (see right photo) was a resident bull elk in the town of Mammoth for many years (see 
right photo).  His fame came from is "crazy" temper during the fall mating season.  He would get so "fired up" that he would attack cars with his huge antlers, as well as chase visitors down the street!  Several times the rangers would have to cut off his horns so he wouldn't be so dangerous, but of course the next year the horns would grow back and he'd once again terrorize Mammoth.  He is greatly missed by all that came to know him.  He was a living legend of Yellowstone National Park.  Hopefully one of his many offspring will take his place and once again "terrorize" the town of Mammoth!

Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces

Sometimes the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces in Yellowstone National Park have interesting guests!

Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces in Yellowstone National Park are truly the highlight of the Mammoth Area.  Make sure you take the time to walk the boardwalks that are found throughout the hot springs area.  These hot springs are a fascinating wonder of nature, and are a "must see" during your Yellowstone National Park vacation!  (Remember to grab a trail guide at the beginning of the board walk- it's extremely informative and helpful.)

The famous Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces in Yellowstone National Park is always a favorite for visitors exploring the Mammoth Area.

The Golden Gate
Golden Gate, Yellowstone National Park

The Golden Gate of Yellowstone National Park is located just a few miles south of Mammoth Hot Springs, just up the hill from the Upper Terraces.  The road takes you up to Swan Lake Flats and then southward to Norris Junction.  This is a very famous iconic image of Yellowstone Park.

Swan Lake Flat

Swan Lake Flat is a vast, open area that is a great place to watch all kinds of wildlife, including grizzly bears, black bears, gray wolves, buffalo, elk, birds and much more.  This is an extremely popular place for animal watchers and photographers.  This area is located south of Mammoth Hot Springs, just beyond the Golden Gate along the road heading for Norris Junction on the Grand Loop.

Few things are more breathtaking than hearing a bull elk bugle!  If you come to Mammoth Hot Springs during the fall rut in Yellowstone National Park, you'll hear a chorus of bugling elk!

Swan Lake Flats, Yellowstone National Park
We have enjoyed some of the most gorgeous sunsets we've ever seen on Swan Lake Flats, such as the one in this photo.
