Every summer we have had a wonderful experience rafting the Yellowstone with Wild West Rafting. Their guides are absolutely terrific and the photos we have are a reminder of the fun we had. I recommend them without reservation.

The North gate is the only gate open this time of year, so you will be able to get into the Park. You will see lots of bison and hopefully elk! Enjoy Gardiner! It’s a cute town.
