Backcountry Camping in Yellowstone National Park 

Full-Service Camps
The smell of wood smoke, the crackle of the fire, the adventure of accessing the pristine backcountry of the Rocky Mountains by horseback...it's all part of our backcountry experience. Camping is by far the most immersive way of experiencing the wonders of our Rocky Mountain paradise. We take pride in taking novice riders and first-time campers into the far reaches of Yellowstone National Park and the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. 

 

Camping allows ample opportunity for fishing, sightseeing, wildlife watching or just sitting back and devouring a good book. We supply the tents, gear, certified Yellowstone National Park guides, and delicious dutch-oven cooking, we even do the dishes!

Camps are by private group reservation only and start at $600 per person, per day. We work with your group to design the perfect camp for you based on your desired location, length of trip, group dynamic, and experience level. Located below is a list of some of our favorite places to camp, though we are always excited to explore a new place! All camps have a four-person minimum, if your group is smaller than four please reach out. We are happy to work with you to make something happen. 

Drop Camps
Do you have your own gear, want to do your own cooking, and venture out on your own, but don't enjoy carrying all your gear on your back? We can help! Let us do the heavy lifting. We can drop you (and/or your gear) off at your desired camping location. One-way drop or pick-ups are offered.

 

We are authorized by special use permit to conduct drop camps on the Gallatin National Forest and in Yellowstone National Park. For trips into Yellowstone National Park, you will need to acquire a backcountry camp permit by contacting the Backcountry office of Yellowstone National Park or visiting the recreation.gov website. Camp permits are not required for camping in the Gallatin National Forrest or the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. 

 

Our drop camp pricing is $350.00 per horse or mule per day, whether ridden or packed. Sack lunch and drinks included. There is a $1050 per day minimum. Additional trailering fees may apply based on the trailhead location.
