Had a great time driving up and down this river. Saw many giants animals including Elk, Bison, Wolf and bear. Great fishing below the falls. Don't miss the rim drives on the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone!

Great river with lots of different water to keep things interesting! Wear your life vest as the current can be tricky.

All of Yellowstone is great and do not pass up the Yellowstone River. The view from above is spectacular and the falls are breathtaking. Along the meadows of the river you can see wildlife in ther natural habitat.
