When to Go

The park is open year-round so the best time to take your Yellowstone National Park honeymoon would depend on your interests. If you like winter activities, November to March is the preferred time. However, during the winter and early spring, the weather can be cold and unpredictable making travel difficult. Snow storms can shut down many roadways and some activities or tours are not available during the winter. Late spring and the summer months are hot, but also busy and crowded with tourists. The park sees thousands of tourists during the summer holiday season, which means reserving a camping spot or a hotel room ahead of time is a must.

If you’re definitely planning to do some camping during your Yellowstone National Park honeymoon, then you’ll need to research camp access before your trip. Planning ahead will best prepare you for all of the costs and permits needed for your trip.
