Loved the planning chapter as it gave lots of helpful hints to where/what/how to accomplish the things you should do before heading to Yellowstone. This book is jammed packed with useful information on the historical facts of the sites and what to skip during the busy season. Once we 'use' the book out in Yellowstone I'll add more to this review as to how much the book actually helps guide us through our journey into and around Yellowstone.

One of the best travel books I've seen. Easy to follow and cross reference, great tips, and better maps than you get locally at the parks. We never would have known to look for the Firehole Canyon swimming hole without it for example -a very memorable part of the trip. Wish Lonely Planet did more travel books than the few I've seen!

Lonely Planet has done it again. I had a few extra hours in the parks and this book told me the best spot for photos, wildlife, what to skip, even the best mud pots in Yellowstone. I would have missed 80% of the good stuff without it.

Have it on my Kindle. Definitely considering putting in in my backpack for Yellowstone. Detailed hikes and evaluations of trails, venues and alternatives.

If you are only interested in a "tour" this book is probably not the one.

Lots of great info on what to see in Yellowstone & how to optimize your time, as well as great list of hikes in Tetons. Very useful for my recent trip.

Of the various guides I have (so I don't miss anything) this is the one I keep coming back to and continue to carry with me on my trips.

Had a number of guidebooks--all good in their own way. This was probably the best of them overall.

Admittedly I am biased, but this book was superb the first few years after it was researched. It's still useful, but now a bit dates.
