The decision to no longer provide visitor services such as answering questions, providing National Forest System lands information or selling permits, forest maps or passes is a difficult one. The Yellowstone Ranger District is in the process of establishing vendor agreements at community businesses in Big Timber including maps sales at the Fort (228 Big Timber Loop Road, Big Timber) and Christmas tree sales at Town Pump (510 W. First Avenue, Big Timber). The Ranger District is still seeking a vendor for selling firewood permits in Big Timber.
All services will also remain available at the Yellowstone Ranger District, Front Office in Livingston at 5242 Hwy 89 South or by phone at: 406-222-1892. Maps may also be purchased online at the: National Forest Map Store or both, Forest Maps and Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM’s) are available for download on mobile devices through the Avenza PDF Maps App, through a free download from iTunes or the Android Play Store. Full Forest visitor maps are $4.99 each for download.
