Stop by and ask about our locally authored Yellowstone Guide Book.
Our friendly staff is a great source for the latest info on where to see animals, just ask us.
Available for rent both Swarovski/Vortex spotting scopes and Nikon and Alpen Binoculars which are highly recommended spotting scopes for those of you who come to Yellowstone to see wolves, bears, goats, or sheep. Many times having a spotting scope will bring a faraway animal into view and help create an experience that you will never forget.
Interested in owning your own? We offer several different binocular models available for purchase.
Our store also stocks sightseeing, hiking, geology, and fishing guide books for Yellowstone and the Beartooth area. Please ask the Silver Gate General Store staff any questions that you have about the area. We are here to serve.
Come join us at the store where we usually gather, relax and share stories about the days' experiences with the other guest and staff. Most nights during the summer and fall we build a fire outside in front of the General Store.
During the day there is a spotting scope set up in front of the general store. High up on the slopes that surround the town you are likely to spot a herd of Bighorn Sheep or Mountain Goats. Sometimes there is a mountain lion seen on the slopes.
We look forward to meeting you!
In Silver Gate, we only have satellite internet. This means that we have very limited data so the internet can only be used for checking email and the weather.
Sometimes, just sitting in front of the store in the morning with a cup of strong, hot coffee and gazing out at snow-capped Amphitheater Mountain towering 3000 plus ft above you is worth all the time, money, and effort getting out to Yellowstone National Park.
