Cell Service Approved For Lake Area

Final approval has been given for the construction of a cell tower near Lake Hotel in Yellowstone National Park to serve the Lake and Fishing Bridge region of the park.  Cell phone service originating from inside the boundaries of Yellowstone National Park is currently limited to the Mammoth, Old Faithful, Canyon, Tower-Roosevelt, and Grant developed areas.  The Lake developed area is the one additional location in the park where Spokesman Al Nash says park managers determined new cell phone coverage could be added under the park’s 2008 Wireless Communications Services Plan Environmental Assessment and its associated Finding of No Significant Impact. Nash says ultimately it was determined that in the immediate developed areas of the park, cell service was something that should be facilitated.  However, he says it was determined that the Park wanted to be sure visitors still had the isolated back-country experience which means no focused cell service in those areas. The new cellular site will be located next to a buried water tank on a 100-foot rise above the Lake Administrative Area and 700 feet below the top of the Elephant Back Ridge.  This site already has access via an existing service road and is near existing electric and phone lines.
