Gardiner is located in the heart of Yellowstone's Northern Range, at the junction of the Gardner and Yellowstone Rivers. We are surrounded by the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness to the east, the Gallatin Wilderness to the north and west, and the world's first and most famous national park, Yellowstone National Park, to the south. This area is home to the most diverse herds of large wildlife species in the lower 48 states including bison, bighorn sheep, elk, pronghorn, grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, and deer.
While we do not have any big box stores here, we are a full service town: we have a grocery store, gift shops, outdoor equipment sales and rentals, a full service auto and RV repair shop, pharmacy, bookstore and members who can assist you with such things as auto-glass repair and welding.
