Spent a great afternoon with family at Chico Hot Spring Pools. Lots of people there but never felt crowded. Towels rental are available for $1 each. Soft drinks, bottled water and adult beverages available which were not over priced! Found the staff extremely friendly and helpful.

This Fly Fishing shop is terrific....they have great guides and current information for almost all of the legendary and lesser known fishing in all of Montana. We found them online and they set us up with a terrific guide (also very patient with old folks who have not kept up their fly fishing skills). They don't try to sell you anything you don't need. My husband and I had a FABULOUS day of fishing the Yellowstone but I would give them the same recommendation even if we had not caught so many trout. No matter where you want to fish I recommend you call them - they will have guides who are familiar with current conditions all over the state.

This is a must! We did the Yukon Trek. Owners are wonderful people. They have most, if not all, of the gear you need. Just check when booking. The dogs are something special! You will be right there with them as they are each harnessed and hooked up to the sled. You can "drive" the sled or ride. Scenery is spectacular. There is nothing quite like a picnic in the snow surrounded by snow covered wilderness landscapes. It seems a little pricey until you learn about the dog and all that it takes to keep this operation going. You just have to figure out how to do this! Our only regret is that we didn't take the all day trek.

Yellowstone River Ranch

Reviewed By TPA22 - Tomball, Texas

My 12 year old daughter and I had a great experience with Cheyenne (owner) and her employees. They were so patient, understanding, and cooperative with us (especially since we've never ridden horses before). Service was spectacular and the horses were wonderful. Every time we called, Cheyenne always picked up the phone and she was always professional. We would definitely recommend Yellowstone River Ranch for horseback riding! Also their prices beat all of the other ranches around Emigrant, Livingston, and Gardiner!

This view of the falls is stunning. It is a paved path anyone can take it. We were a group of three this last time, but school field trips, babies in stroller, really anyone can enjoy this one.

They were a perfect fit for our family. We booked a one hour trail ride. They were ready for us when we arrived and gave us a short orientation. The horses were great and the trail was beautiful. Our guide Drew was very helpful and shared wonderful information on the trail. We would definitely go back.

Pine Creek Trail

Reviewed By bclarke292 - Northern Illinois

I have been coming here for many years. I have lots of fond memories camping overnight and hiking this trail. Yes, there are bears in the area so keep a clean camp and bring bear spray. The hike isn't strenuous but it is uphill and at least a mile to the falls. A fire did go through a few years ago but that hasn't diminished the beauty of the hike.

Top notch service from Eric. Back in Dec. 2016, I booked two days for a late June trip which had to be rescheduled fairly last-minute (in May) due to a broken leg. Eric was understanding, responsive and very flexible, and we were able to book for early September. When notice came out that the Yellowstone - and many other waters in the area - was closed in mid-late August, Eric was super communicative and flexible to plans. We kept our trip as scheduled, and everything worked out incredibly well - the Yellowstone opened up, and we got two great days of fishing in. Our guides were both fantastic - both patient and fun, and incredibly knowledgeable. They were great teachers, and helped a newbie (me) learn to fly fish, and improved the technique of my boyfriend and dad. My boyfriend said it was the best fishing he'd ever experienced. We look forward to returning next year.

River Source Rafting

Reviewed By Kathy A - Los Angeles, California

We really enjoyed our experience with Jimmy, our guide, on the fun and beautiful blue raft floating and paddling and some adventures on Yellowstone River. Jimmy educated us on safety, how to paddle, as well as telling us some stories about the river at various points and some historic events about the river and the canyon. Then he took us to a spot perfect for swimming, so we can jump in and enjoy the water. We had an amazing, fun, and relaxing experience on the river.
