We are the primary concessionaire in Yellowstone National Park and part of the Xanterra Travel Collection family. Yellowstone is known for being the world’s first national park and a bucket list vacation destination. Working and living in the park gives you opportunities for adventure and life-changing experiences; not only will you grow professionally, but you’ll form lifelong friendships with people from around the world.

With 2.2 million acres in your backyard, Yellowstone offers many possibilities for adventure! Our employees can take advantage of all that the park has to offer including camping, hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, athletics, trips, tours, and seminars. However, if you prefer streaming movies and music, playing games on your phone, or need access to big-city amenities, living in Yellowstone may not be for you. Our wireless internet is shared throughout the entire park, and while it is available for employees, the connection is very slow.
