About Your Trip
There is an entire day devoted to Yellowstone Wildlife, with the focus being the Lamar Valley in the north-eastern part of the park. Of course there's never a guarantee of seeing wolves, but the day is structured to maximize the possibility. Some things to remember, wolves are weary of humans, so the only real way to observe them in the wild is at a great distance through spotting scopes which are provided to the group.
Yellowstone is one of the only essentially intact ecosystems left in the Northern world and it also sits on top of one of the world's largest volcanoes so wolves are only a small piece of what makes this region so spectacular and worthy of visiting.
We will camp both at privately run, organised sites with toilet, washing and shower facilities, and at some relatively primitive sites (e.g. within the national park boundaries) with only basic toilets and tap water. While
camping, expect to have access to a hot shower every other day. Hot showers are included at some camping sites, other nights; the showers are charged for and cost between $1.50-3.00. Compared to Europe, campgrounds here tend to be slightly more basic with fewer amenities. National park campgrounds tend to be much more basic than the commercial sites in Europe. However this is done on purpose, as development is frowned upon as the national parks are supposed to protect the area for future use and not destroy the natural habitat by development.

If you are used to walking with poles then you can take them with you. They are not essential though and the walk is manageable without them. It is personal preference but do remember to pack them as part of your main luggage to be stowed in the hold.
