Do you need a map of Yellowstone so you don’t miss a single detail of this national park? Before taking any trip, I like to collect maps of the place I am going to visit to plan the itinerary so as not to miss anything I want to see. That is exactly what I did when I planned my trip to Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. I wanted to enjoy all the natural wonders there, and with our Yellowstone National Park maps, it was really easy. We were able to make the most of our time there.
Yellowstone is the oldest national park in the United States, and it’s so extensive and diverse that I recommend getting an official map of Yellowstone National Park and spending at least a week there to see it in depth. Or, if you can, spend even more days there because there are many incredible things to do in Yellowstone.

Basic map of Yellowstone
This basic map of Yellowstone is very useful for getting an initial idea of how the park is structured. You will see the different entrances that it has and the places of interest that are near each one. Depending on when you travel, some of the entrances may be closed, so you must confirm first, depending on where you arrive from, if the corresponding entrance will be open on the dates you’re there.
It is also essential to keep this map in mind when choosing a place to stay in Yellowstone, as the hotels within the park fill up very quickly, and most visitors end up staying outside the park. The West Entrance connects to West Yellowstone, which is the place most visitors choose to stay.
It is also very important to understand how the 8-shaped Yellowstone National Park Road works (the Grand Loop Road, which is divided into Upper Loop Road [the top of the 8] and Lower Loop Road [the bottom of the 8]), as well as know where the most important villages are located on this road (Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower-Roosevelt, Canyon Village, Fishing Bridge, Lake Village, Bridge Bay, West Thumb, Grant Village, Old Faithful, Madison, and Norris).
With this schematic map of Yellowstone in your head, you’re ready to read any guide and plan your route. It will also help when you read our guide on the best places to visit in Yellowstone.
Interactive map of Yellowstone National Park
I have created the following interactive map of Yellowstone National Park so that you can find all the places that are worth visiting. On it, you will find places to go hiking, spectacular geysers, waterfalls, wildlife watching spots, and much more.
If, on your trip, you find a new place that doesn’t appear on the map, let me know so I can add it to this interactive map of Yellowstone, and I will visit it the next time I travel to this national park.
Tourist map of Yellowstone
The following tourist map of Yellowstone will help you locate both the different entrances to the park and the main points of tourist interest quickly. A perfect map to give you a quick idea of how the park is structured and what places you can visit there.
Map of Old Faithful and Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone
Old Faithful is one of the most popular geysers in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. It is in the Upper Geyser Basin, the most visited geothermal basin in Yellowstone, so it’s very useful to have not only an Old Faithful map but also a map of the Biscuit Basin and Black Sand Basin.
I particularly like this map of Yellowstone because it shows all the geysers, fumaroles, and hot springs between Old Faithful and Biscuit Basin on what is known as the Hot Springs Trail. If you are going to walk it, I recommend you have this map of the Upper Geyser Basin on hand.
Map of Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone
Mammoth Hot Springs, in Yellowstone, is an incredible place, full of travertine terraces that will leave you speechless. This geothermal area is divided into two main zones: the Lower Terraces and Main Terraces, which can be visited on foot, and the Upper Terraces, which you will need to drive a one-way road to visit.
There is a lot of geothermal activity in this area, so I recommend using this map of Mammoth Hot Springs so you don’t miss a single detail.
Map of Norris Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park
Norris is another spectacular area in Yellowstone, Wyoming. As you can see on the Norris Geyser Basin map, Yellowstone is divided into two geothermal sub-basins: Porcelain Basin and Back Basin. Both are beautiful, although very different. At the first basin, you will find a landscape marked by porcelain and light blue terrain, while at the second one, among many geysers is one of the highest in the world, the Steamboat Geyser.
To avoid missing anything in this geothermal basin, don’t forget to download our map of Yellowstone.
Map of West Thumb Geyser Basin, Yellowstone
Here is a map of West Thumb Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, so you can get to know this amazing geothermal basin on the shores of Yellowstone Lake. This is, without a doubt, a place that I recommend visiting since it is the largest mountain lake in North America.
On the Yellowstone map, you can see all the hydrothermal features that are on the shores of this lake.
Map of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
You can find a map of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone below, which is essential for finding the main viewpoints of both the North Rim and the South Rim. With this map of Yellowstone, you will know exactly which viewpoints to stop at to enjoy the incredible Yellowstone waterfalls and the amazing geological forms in this park.
Keep in mind that the road that runs through the North Rim is one-way, so although the viewpoint I like most is the last one, I recommend stopping at all the points indicated on the Yellowstone map from left to right.
Map of the Mud Volcano, Yellowstone National Park
I also leave you with a map of the Mud Volcano so you can get to know both this peculiar volcano and its surroundings. I assure you that seeing bubbling mud is much more spectacular than it may seem at first. It’s an incredible place, without a doubt, and with the following map of Yellowstone, you won’t miss any detail of it.
High-resolution map of Yellowstone
If you don’t know where some attractions are yet, on the High-Resolution map of Yellowstone below, you can zoom in and find them. Also, this is a great printable map of Yellowstone.
What I like most about this map of Yellowstone is that the Yellowstone caldera is marked with a different color, and, as you can see, it almost entirely covers the Lower Loop. This is the reason why most of the hydrothermal features of the park are visible in this area.
Yellowstone Wildlife map
Below is one of my favorite maps of Yellowstone, the Yellowstone wildlife map. Thanks to this map, you can quickly locate the places where it will be much easier to see wildlife. In addition, the species in each location are indicated on the map. A perfect map if you want to spot wildlife during your trip.
Use this map of Yellowstone with caution, as all animals can appear anywhere in the park, but a specific species is more likely to appear where indicated on the map.
Yellowstone on a map – Where is Yellowstone on the map?
So that you can locate Yellowstone within the USA and within Wyoming, next you can see where is Yellowstone on the map of the United States.
As you can see, it is in the upper left corner of Wyoming, although Yellowstone National Park also includes some land in Montana and Idaho as well. In fact, we flew to Bozeman, Montana, rather than Jackson Lake, Wyoming, as we got a cheaper flight.
