The Yellowstone Airport is located two miles north of the town of
West Yellowstone on Hwy 191 and 45 miles south of the Big Sky Resort.
The town of West Yellowstone is located at the west entrance to Yellowstone
National Park. The Yellowstone Airport is also the closest, full-service
airport to all the major attractions in Yellowstone National Park
(Old Faithful – 30 miles, Canyon – 45 miles, Lake Hotel
– 65 miles). The airport is at an elevation of 6644 feet and
has an 8400 foot long runway. The instrument approaches include ILS,
NDB and GPS. The airport has accommodated everything from Ultralights
to C5A and C141 military cargo planes and Air Force One.
There is a landing fee charged to all aircraft with a gross landing weight over 9,000 pounds and an overnight parking/tiedown
fee starting at $5.00 for small general aviation aircraft with higher fees for larger aircraft.
Due to the number of people in the area during the summer season,
it is recommended that reservations be made as early as possible for
hotel rooms and rental cars. Some of the hotels have airport shuttles. For those
wishing to camp with their aircraft, there is a small campground located
at the north end of the tiedown ramp for pilots and passengers. The
campground is in the trees and has picnic tables, fire pits, a pit
toilet and hot shower. The shower is generally available from mid
June until September. Freezing temperatures before and after those
dates limit the time of the showers operation. Tents can be pitched
any where among the trees, and campers will generally share the tables
and fire pits. The campground
is provided and maintained by the Montana Aeronautics Division, and
there is no charge for its use, however, the aircraft parking fee
of $5.00 per night still applies. There is also a ramp service fee for aircraft over 9,000 pounds gross landing weight which is waived with fuel purchase.
If you notify us on Unicom (123.0)
when inbound that you will be going to the campground, we will not
direct you to parking on the ramp. We can also give you directions
to the campground at this time.
