Bring a high quality spotting scope and show up by about 7am. You can hire a guide (worth it... try Wolftracker out of Gardiner MT) or you can rent a scope. You will see group's of folks gathered on hilltops looking north toward the ridge. Really fun to watch the wolves, see the cubs rolling on each other, and we... 更多
But so very nice. Hiking as a family, we only made it to the upper meadows where bugling elk were enjoyed and a grizzly was seen from a safe distance. Much of the park is quiet and Infrequently visited in the autumn but I have the impression this area is largely unknown except to fly fishing anglers and those who... 更多
Our group of 38 teens helped build parking bumpers and thoroughly enjoyed the creek running by the parking lot and the beautiful views. On the road to Slough Creek we stopped and saw 10 wolves from one of the pack running up the hillside. This time of year was definitely cold but amazing because almost no one else was in... 更多

Slough creek is near the entrance to the Lamar canyon, and has in the past often been a good place to view wolves. Bison and pronghorn as well as coyote are also often seen here. You can also often get cell phone service.
This campground is small and very convenient to the Larmar valley. It is first-come first serve so it is difficult to get in. You will see Bison, deer and antelope right in the camp. There is also a bear that ambles through occasionally although we did not see her.
