Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch at Yellowstone’s South Entrance

Just minutes from the South Entrance to Yellowstone National Park and the northern section of Grand Teton National Park, stay at the Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch.

As you drive on the John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Memorial Parkway toward Yellowstone National Park, you’ll find the Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch. It’s just two miles from Yellowstone’s South Entrance, giving you great access to the world’s first national park. With no Wi-Fi or cell phone service and plentiful activities like horseback riding, hiking, fishing and engaging interpretive programs, the lodge is a wonderful place to truly disconnect from the world and reconnect with whomever you are traveling.

Sheffields Restaurant & Saloon

No need to cook or drive anywhere for a meal when you have Sheffields Restaurant & Saloon serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s located in a casual log-cabin style room and is open June  through early October. No reservations are accepted, so if you don’t get there before the other diners, sit down at the bar and enjoy a local brew or a Caldera Margarita, a spicy strawberry margarita that’s a house specialty. At dinner, order the most popular dish on the menu—the bison and elk meatloaf.
