Yellowstone River was beautiful

Great beauty. We were surprised that the history related to the river. We did not know that Clark of the lewis and Clark team traveled down this river

If you like to fish, float and great views, make sure you get out on this river! Bugs in the fall can drive you nuts at times, but worth it if you love the outdoors!

It's just simply beautiful and we usually see wildlife around the river. In December we cross-country skied to the river and left directly from town.

Yellowstone National Park was named after this river. It is an amazing site to see. If you drive all of Yellowstone National Park there is no way to miss it! It's is a very clean, clear river. Wildlife can often be spotted on its banks.

The river connects Montana to Yellowstone Lake, traveling through the Hayden Valley (America's Serengeti), over magnificent falls, and on into Montana. The fishing is great. Living nearby, we have been there many times and always enjoy the drive. The funnest thing we have done there though was when the salmon fly hatch was on and we could catch them and... More

October was a excellent time to go, with the leaves changing, perfect weather, and the crowds pretty much gone for the season.

Stop and enjoy the view throughout your trip. Amazing amazing amazing. There are perfect places to pull off to fish, or simply to enjoy a picnic. Plenty of pull over areas along the river.
