    Great photo
    Beautiful photo to commemorate the three days we spent exploring Yellowstone. Nice spring evening and sunset after a great dinner at Wonderland Cafe. Yellowstone was magnificent and staying in Gardiner was a great way to explore the northern parts of the park.

    Worth the Drive
    Worth the roughly 4 hour drive from Jackson Hole to visit. The history behind the arch makes this worth wild in itself. While visiting, take the time to walk around downtown Gardiner MT, as they have a lot of nice shops/food!

    Pretty cool to see
    It was really nice to see. The best part of it is when you walk through it as if you are leaving and see the plaques on it. Definitely worth the short walk. Go around lunch time and then head up to the Corral Restaurant for the best bison burger you will ever have. It is about 5-10 minutes from the North entrance. Watch out for the elk at night.

    Iconic and historic entrance
    Worth driving up to see. The iconic historic entrance and landmark. Road is curvy and switchbacked a lot coming out of the park and returning We were staying at Fishing Bridge so we got to see a lot of park on the way. Nice photo to add to the trip book. Lots of Elk around and At Gardiner for things you are not getting if you have been living in the park a couple weeks Gives perspective on how small vehicles and roads were when it was built and concept of one car at time only one way.

A good place to take a picture. This arch is located in the north side when entering Yellowstone. Also, souvenir shops and restaurants are walking distance.

Pleased to find ample parking just after the arch where you can get out and get a few pics without rushing to get one passing by. However, don’t except to be alone. You will have several new friends in your photo which was expected. Also in the same stop you can get the Yellowstone sign.

Not an imposing or particularly attractive structure, if you aren't interested in the how and why of the arch it is just something to drive through.

If you come in the North Entrance, you will drive through this into the park. Otherwise, drive to the North Entrance to see it. Kind of a nifty historic monument.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it, but I’d you are in the Mammoth area of Yellowstone, stop by and get your picture. It’s historical, pretty phenomenal, and free to see.

This arch is on the way to Gardiner, Mt and the pictures do not do it justice. Another gateway into or out of Yellowstone. Love the town of Gardiner and great place to stop have lunch and shop.
