“Our pace of life is as unique as the extremely spectacular wilderness that surrounds us. Cooke City, Silver Gate, and Colter Pass residents have varied backgrounds and stories, but all love the area with a passion.”
Cooke City is home to the closest entrance to Yellowstone’s world famous Lamar Valley and the least crowded entrance to the Park. One of the last wild places to explore featuring year round access, you’ll find yourself surrounded by pristine wilderness and endless opportunities for outdoor experiences. Home to just 100 people year round and 300 in the summer, Colter Pass, Cooke City, and Silver Gate are unique areas with an economy strongly anchored in tourism.
