A backpack, sunblock, rain poncho and better hiking-type boots are the items most commonly found lacking. You spend a lot of time outdoors with a long enough walk from the dorm to the hotel in a blizzard, hailstorm, rainstorm or blazing sun. Some people spend the summer in the lobby bar and employee pub. Some spend it on hiking trails, swimming and boating. Regardless, when you trudge a quarter mile through inch-deep frozen slush in the dark to get to work in an early season snow squall, you'll reflect on not having studier shoes than dress shoes or tennis shoes. You will also reflect on paying half again for those items mentioned above if you wait to buy them on location, even with the employee discount. Yellowstone is a world class place to hike although it isn't much good right at Lake. Providing you take advantage of the hiking, K-Mart and Wal-Mart have very inexpensive warm-weather sleeping bags and 7-pound backpacking tents at about $25 each and they fit nicely into a backpack. It is almost impossible to get along without a backpack. When you head into work, you'll have a place to put your workshoes, gloves, hat, etc. When you're not at work, you carry your free take-out lunches from the employee dining room, and sunblock and a visored hat and so on.

If you want to camp i sugguest bringing a backpack of some kind. A sleeping bag would be helpful and if you have a tent that you can hike with i would bring it. All of that kind of depends on if you are driving or flying though. Warm clothes are a must. But in the summer it does get warm so t-shirts and shorts are also good to bring. Don't forget towels.

Well it still snows in May and still gets cold at night throughout the summer pretty much so bring some warm clothes. During the summer days like some of June, July, and August it can get warm so bring some summer clothes too. Bring your hiking shoes and your camara and a backpack or camelpak to take with you when you hike. And of course depending upon whether you have a car or not and how long your staying, since buying anything at the general store is pricey, I would stock up on toiletries too so you have enough of whatever you need to last you through your time there. C ya in Yellowstone!!
