The Snake River winds through Yellowstone and into Grand Tetons. We stopped at several spots and were amazed how clear the water was. We saw buffalo along the river in one spot. Also lots of waterfowl. There are rafting trips that I heard are very good but we didn't have time for one.

We enjoyed various view of the Snake River during our drive through Idaho and our visit to Yellowstone National Park. The Snake River is a major river and is 1,078 miles long. Hell's Canyon is on the Snake River as well.

The snake river is long and varied, but almost always worth a look. Driving through Yellowstone National Park, you can see the Snake in many places. We stopped at one of the many spots setup for quick visits, bot out of the car and saw a lonesome evergreen leaning into the river. It looked poised to fall at any moment,... More

Took a Snake River rafting trip on our first day of visiting Wyoming. Water was beautiful, saw eagles, beaver, osprey, marmoth, white pelicans. Wonderful relaxing four hours on the river.

Such CLEAN water! To really appreciate the beauty of this river you need to do a scenic rafting or white water rafting trip. There are animals along the way and the atmosphere is one of serenity and peace. You won't regret spending time here!

The Snake River is located in the southern part of the Park. Most of the river is seldom seen by park visitors, so it is pretty pristine. Waterfowl can be seen at certain times of the year.

We came to fly fish. Not disappointed. Beautiful cut throats. The river is absolutely beautiful. Almost perfect scenery, and conditions. Be careful though the water is clear so you must sneak up on the fish or you spook them. We were successful with dry flies

While on a 7 day tour with Caravan, our 47 participants were treated to a 90 minute raft ride along 10 miles of the Snake River. It was fast moving due to the snow melt from the mountains, and a quick rain storm blew in just as we started to enjoy our sack lunches, but ponchos were provided and our... More
