On one of our day trips we took the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway into the backside of Yellowstone NP. Hit Cave Falls, Warm River Springs, Big Falls, Big Falls Inn, the Tetons from the backside, etc. The back roads and sights that the regular tourists never see.

Also did Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, Southwest of Yellowstone NP, and ran into the source of the Missouri River, Hell Roaring Creek.

Did other stuff too, but I don't want to make this too long.

I don't know who these guys are, but if you scroll down about halfway, they do the Morrison Jeep Trail that is just east of Yellowstone NP. The trail was on my list of things to do while out there, but we just didn't have the time to do it:

Montana/Wyoming and the Morrison Jeep Trail

I highly recommend the Lamar River Valley along the road between Tower Junction and the northeast entrance. It usually has lots of wildlife, especially early in the morning. You might need a spotting scope or good binocs. We saw wolves, grizzly, elk, antelope, and literally more bison than you could count, but of course you will see them everywhere.

Are you allowing yourself 7 days for the entire trip (there and back) or are you staying at Yellowstone for 7 days? If you're staying for 7 days pick up a Yellowstone map and section the park for day trips. There is plenty to view in the park. If you're looking for a place to stay I suggest Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone. While in the area check out the Grand Teton area just South of Yellowstone. Have a great time and Be Safe.

Really enjoyed a nice dinner on lake yellowstone, but I think you need to make reservations. Take lots of hikes and must see "the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone". If you just take the loop you will hit most attractions. We spent a week in Cody near east gate at Boy Scout camp, and then week in park. Only could get one night in the park and the rest in west yellowstone. Really nice RV park in west yellowstone, but a little pricey. If you like swimming check out the swimming hole...beautiful. We really enjoyed Quake Lake about 30 minutes outside WY. you can still see the cabins that just floated down stream from the quake floods and settled wherever they did. Saw bald eagles taking roads near quake lake. Click image for larger version

Another vote for dinner at the old Lake Lodge, and yes you will need reservations.

Curious, what web site is driving you crazy? I've worked and hiked YNP for over 20 years, leading science teachers in grad classes. The best part of YNP is off the main trails and attractions. The vast majority of folks never get out of sight of their car. At Artist's Point, when everyone goes left to go to the overlook, keep on straight for a hundred yards. You'll bend right around a small creek, then left again to a higher viewpoint of the canyon. Usually very few folks make it there. At Old Faithful, go up to the overlook of the geyser basin. Thousands of 'sheep' sit and stand around OF, but up on the overlook, (a very short hike) you'll have passed a few nifty little geysers and from up there you get a great view of the whole area. I've been up there alone or with only 2-5 others. Sheepeater Cliff is nice to look at, but if you follow the trail to the left in front of it you'll end up on top of the cliff where you can see the hexagonal columns from the top. Often marmots run around up there to view.

There's also a swimming hole and a hot spring you can soak in. Ranger sanctioned, but never listed on official maps or guides. Just some of the many wonders in the park when you get to know it!

Ditto Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone MT. Try to get a corner pull-thru. Ours (site 45) had a small yard.

We traveled to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Nation Park (a one hour drive south) in 2012 for a short stay on our way home. See our trip on our blog for some of the majestic and interesting scenery.

What exactly is driving you crazy with the web site? Acommodations? Things to do? Personally, I think the national park's site gives lots of good information.

Not too far from Yellowstone is the Bear Tooth Highway. This is a must see....An All-American Road in Wyoming & Montana | Beartooth Highway | Montana & Wyoming Scenic Drives
