The Best Place to Find Black Bears in Yellowstone National Park

The Salad Days of Early May

The best area to find black bears Yellowstone, at least in the spring, is between Tower Junction and Tower Falls.   There is a small lake along the road in that area called Rainy Lake.  Next to the lake is a large meadow which bears use for grazing.  This young bear was in the meadow a lot last May.  Pay special attention to the stretch between the lake and Calcite Springs Overlook.
