On your way around "The Grand Loop" in Yellowstone National Park, the Tower - Roosevelt Area is definitely a place to explore.  

Roosevelt was one of Teddy Roosevelt's favorite places in Yellowstone Park not only because of it's amazing beauty, but also because of the amount of wildlife found here.  There is a large number of black bear that love to hang around this area, so you have a good chance of seeing a bear on the road!  

Elk, deer, moose, wolves and grizzly bears also frequent this area, as well as bighorn sheep ewes and lambs.  These bighorns live along the steep canyon walls along the Yellowstone River (between Roosevelt and Tower) in the spring and early summer so the lambs can avoid the large number of predators in the area. 

The Roosevelt / Tower Area in Yellowstone National Park is known for it's rolling mountains covered in fir trees, as well as spruce, aspen and sagebrush.  Also, the drive between Roosevelt and Tower offers incredible views of steep canyon walls that end far below you at the shores of the Yellowstone River.  And when you arrive at Tower, you will be greeted by the famous Tower Fall, which is a 132 foot waterfall that is one of Yellowstone National Park's iconic attractions.  Below are further details on what to check out on your way through this fascinating area...

                We photographed this gorgeous grizzly just north of Roosevelt.

Gateway to the Lamar Valley
Roosevelt is the gateway to the famous road through the Lamar Valley, which is sometimes referred to as "America's Serengeti".  This area is loaded with scenery and wildlife, all the way to Cooke City, Montana at the Northeast Entrance.  The only reason the Lamar Valley isn't one of the "top ten" is that it's not along the "Grand Loop".  However, if you've got the time, we strongly recommend that you drive up this acclaimed road.  To fit this in your schedule, check out our Informative E-Books for our itinerary suggestions.


Roosevelt Lodge
Roosevelt Lodge, Tower / Roosevelt Area, Yellowstone National Park
This historic lodge in Yellowstone National Park was used by Teddy Roosevelt in 1906, and ever since has been a favorite for those visitors who want to get a taste of the Great American West.  You can stay at one the the rustic cabins found near the lodge, and enjoy the restaurant and gift shop located in the lodge itself.


Stagecoach Rides and Cowboy Cookouts!
Stagecoach at Roosevelt Lodge, Tower / Roosevelt Area, Yellowstone National Park
For those of you who want to experience the Great American West as it once was, we suggest that you take a stagecoach or ride a horse through Pleasant Valley to a genuine Outdoor Cowboy Cookout.  The food is incredible, as well as the entertainment and scenery.  If you want to be a cowboy for awhile, The Roosevelt Area in Yellowstone National Park is the place to do it!

Calcite Springs Overlook
Calcite Springs Overlook, Tower / Roosevelt Area, Yellowstone National Park
Between Roosevelt and Tower, the road follows an extremely deep canyon along the Yellowstone River.  The walls of this canyon are composed of thousands of feet of volcanic basalt lava, and it makes for a great place to stop and take in the beauty.  The Calcite Springs Overlook is the best place to get a safe look at this incredible canyon.  Along the walls of this canyon, watch for bighorn sheep ewes and lambs, especially in the spring and early summer.  To avoid predators, the ewes actually give birth and raise these lambs on these cliffs!  There are also several Osprey nests found along these cliffs, so keep an eye out for them.

Tower Fall
This is an extremely famous water fall in Yellowstone National Park, and yes, it's name is "Tower Fall" and not "Tower Falls" which we find interesting.  These falls are gorgeous, and the basalt lava rock which is found throughout the area, is carved into tower-like shapes. Thus the name "Tower".  The trail to the falls is just to the east of the Tower Gift Shop, and it's well worth the short walk.

Tower Campground
This is a really pretty campground that you'll definitely enjoy if you end up camping here on your way through Yellowstone National Park.
