Canyon Lodge is a collection of several lodges and cabins in the centre of Yellowstone National Park. When booking, we mistakenly thought it was one lodge.
The Registration Office (i.e. Reception for check in) was located in Washburn Lodge. Check-in was an impersonal experience – we showed ID, left credit card details and received a key to our room plus map to find our lodge. We were allocated Room 4315 in Moran Lodge (one of seven accommodation lodges). We asked about meals and were told that the Dining Room was fully booked however we might get a cancellation. We were shown a map of where the dining precinct was – it was called Canyon Lodge.
