SUMMER TRAVEL PLEASE NOTE! We can be accessed by YNP through the North East Entrance or via the East Entrance by taking the Chief Joseph Highway just outside of Cody, Wyoming. Occasionally a road closure will re-direct your route to the Elk Horn Lodge but as long as there is a road open no matter if it is a longer drive than you planned we can not refund your room reservation. We have a limited number of high occupancy rooms and cabins and turn many away, so please understand you will be charged for the room we guaranteed you.
Note: We will not make any refunds due to the Beartooth Highway 212 being closed. This is not the main route to Cooke City. It is only a Scenic Byway. It's your responsibility to make sure it is open before you decide to drive it. If the Beartooth Highway is closed take this route from Red Lodge: Hwy 308 to 72 then 72 becomes 120 when you cross into Wyoming. Stay on Wyoming 120 until you turn right on to Hwy 296 (Chief Joseph). If you see a green sign that says Cody 16 you missed the right turn on the Chief Joseph.
WINTER TRAVEL: We can be accessed by WHEELED VEHICLES through the north gate of Yellowstone National Park at Gardiner. This road is open 24 hours a day to Cooke City but not beyond in the Winter. We can also be accessed by SNOWMOBILE ONLY via the 212 Highway from Pilot Creek Parking Lot.
