Wild West Whitewater Rafting

Wild West Whitewater Rafting is all about having fun on the river. Choose between a half day and full day whitewater trip. They even combine whitewater rafting with horseback riding with their Saddle and Paddle trip. Spend the morning riding horses, and then white water down the Yellowstone River.

American Whitewater

American Whitewater is a great website to reference before rafting down any river. It has up-to-date information about water levels, difficulty, weather, rapids, length, average and maximum gradient, etc. The website also has pictures and descriptions of each river.


When you come to Island Park and the West Yellowstone area to snowmobile, you’ve come to an area that has earned the nick name “Snowmobiling Capital of the World.” If you don’t have a snowmobile of your own, no worries we also rent snowmobiles!

Events and Festivals

American Dog Derby

This historic dog sled race has an interesting history dating back to March 4, 1917 when the first 55 mile race began from West Yellowstone, MT to Ashton, ID (Now fully held inside the Ashton area). Mushers come from all parts of the United States determined to run their dogs in the race and win. A notable example was in 1948 when musher Lewis Price dropped his dogs by parachute from a plane to the starting line! It is an exciting winter experience with events for mushers, spectators, and dogs of all sizes.
