It's in a town called Manhattan. Personally I prefer the Land of Magic (about 5 miles away, not very far), but the Oasis isn't bad. Also a really good rib place nearby there (Willow Creek Cafe).
All of the advice about the park is pretty solid, I'll just add this. Every year we locals hear about tourists who get out to pet the bison/elk/any other animal, or even just try to get close to take pictures. Not to generalize, but it's usually the foreign Asian tourists. Don't be those people. They get hurt/die. YNP is an awesome place, but don't forget the danger, whether it's a boiling spot of water or a large animal. Speaking of, make a pit stop to the Boiling River. It's nice and relaxing, kids will like it.
With that said, if you have any questions on Bozeman or the surrounding areas, let me know, I mean...I have lived there my whole life.
