Still hoping to head to Yellowstone National Park later this month. For those who have been, I am wondering, can I expect to have any cell phone service while in the park? While I would love to go without the phone, I would also like to check-in with my family every few days. So, if there is no service in the park, how far out of the park would I need to go to get service?
Thanks,
Mike

There was service in the western part of the park when I was there in June but it may have been from towers outside the park. Don't know about the area you will be fishing.
Probably could get information from you provider.

With or without contact with the outside world have a great time fishing.

Yes, even up at Slough Creek. That was summer of 2007. They have done a masterful job of camouflaging (sp?) the towers.
Hope you have a great trip.

My brother in law spent a week out there this summer, 2nd or 3rd week of July. Here is the link to his website, many of the pics are gorgeous. He posted little notes as to location, should help with ideas for any heading that way.

Guess you'll have to paste it to your browser, didn't seem to highlight it.

Tight lines,
