Yellowstone NP/UTV use


If I have a street-legal UTV (i.e. dune buggy) can I use it inside the park?  On the roads (paved and dirt)?

Hi Brad,

This question is a little outside my expertise for Yellowstone Park.  I believe if it legal to drive on other public streets and highways it should be okay to drive on the highways in Yellowstone.  There are no off road places to drive such a vehicle in Yellowstone.  Yellowstone has its own law enforcement, special speed limits and so on.

Thanks for the question...Mike
