This is a review of Specimen Ridge Outfitters horseback riding which looks like is partnered with Wild West Rafting. My family took a 1 hour trail ride out of the Specimen Creek Outfitter ranch into the Gallatin National Forest and we had a great time. Ralph, the outfitter, was great with those of us that aren't familiar around horses. All... More

We did a full day trip with Will. He was one of the nicest dudes I have ever met and was super knowledgeable about the river, wildlife, and Yellowstone. Picnic lunch was really yummy and views were incredible. We felt very safe but also had an adventure as well! Will explained some of the raft guide training to us and... More

Went on a scenic whitewater trip with Morgan as our guide. Three young children and a baby. Fun and safe. Saw elk grazing by the river and learned a lot about the area. Owners are probably the nicest people you'll ever meet. Apparently they have overnight trips where you stay in a Teepee on the river and enjoy a campfire... More

Kyle our guide was simply the best...informative, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. it was just the two of us in the raft and although... More

Went on a raft trip with Nolan as our guide. Water was a little low but the rapids were still fun. Nolan pointed out interesting features along the way about the geology and wildlife present. The Yellowstone River is so clear and cold. I would book this trip again the next time I am in the area!

This really is worth the money, it's safe. We went in August so the rapids were mostly class 1 and 2 with one class 3 which is just enough to make it super fun for our 6 year old sons first time. If you want bigger rapids come in May/June for class 4 and maybe 5.

4 of us booked the overnight rafting in mid-August, and we were not disappointed. We arrived at their offices at 9:30am and we were given water shoes and explained what we'd be doing. We were introduced to our guide, Zach, who proved to be really nice and knowledgeable about the river and told us some fun and interesting stories during... More

From the awesome staff at the office, Yardley, to our fun rafting guide, Nolan, my whole family (61 years old to 8 years old) had an awesome and fun rafting experience on the Yellowstone river! We highly recommend Wild West Rafting. Looking forward to next year!

If you want to talk about an incredible trip lets talk about Wild West Rafting. The people at wild west know how to make you want to come back for more. As a South Carolina boy it was a pretty unreal experience and I want to thank the Wild West Rafting Company for allowing me to experience the time I... More
