Take a step outside your cabin and you will be sure to witness the great wildlife that exists surrounding Elk Lake Resort. The Centennial Valley and Red Rock Lakes National Refuge are home to virtually every species that you’ll see in Yellowstone National Park, with the exception of bison.
For those that love the Rocky Mountain wildlife, you won’t be disappointed. Animals large and small call our area home and while you might have to work a little to see a Grizzly Bear, there are hundreds of species that are highly visible in this undeveloped habitat we call home.
It's better than a zoo.
