Overnight Rafting Trip

Our Overnight Rafting trip in Yellowstone National Park is unlike any other, and the very best way to experience the Yellowstone River!

We are proud to offer this incredible and unique 24-hour excursion that is perfect for families, couples, and small groups.

Your rafting trip in Yellowstone National Park begins at 9:30 a.m for check-in at our Wild West Rafting Office. You will be transported to the Yellowstone River just minutes away. At the river, you will meet your expert guide. After a brief talk about safety, we board the raft and paddle off! This white water section of the Yellowstone River has several class II & III rapids, beautiful mountain scenery, and wildlife. Prepare to get very wet!

During a calm stretch of river, we land on a riverbank filled with tall cottonwood trees. You are served a hearty picnic lunch*. Take this time to do some exploring before boarding the raft for more white water action. Yankee Jim Canyon is the next thrilling section of the river. The deep, narrow canyon offers an up-close and personal feel of nature.

18 miles into your trip, the river begins to meander through Montana ranch land. It is a unique section of the river that only our overnight rafting guests experience. At approximately 4 p.m., you arrive at our destination camp. During your river trip, our staff has been busy preparing your overnight stay. A campfire, hot or cold drinks, your dry clothes, and gear are waiting upon arrival!

With the campfire glowing, guests will be treated to a real Montana Country dinner**. Dinner includes a variety of tasty sides guaranteed to satisfy the hungriest rafter! Other menu items are available upon request.

Relax after dinner, take a walk along the riverbank, fish, or just sit by the fire for the evening.  As the night winds down, prepare for stargazing in Big Sky Country! Enjoy stories and roasting marshmallows before it’s off to a cozy night’s sleep in a comfortable wall tent equipped with a cot, pillow, and sleeping bag.


The next morning, we will serve you and your family a country breakfast*** of bacon, and pancakes.

Once we bring you back to the Wild West Rafting office you will have the chance to view your photos and say goodbye to your new rafting friends!
