Just like our trail rides, all pack trips depart from our Turpin Meadows Base Camp near Moran, WY (See map below.)

Group size:

You must have 4 people in your group to be a private trip. If you do not have a minimum of 4, you can be added with other small groups to make a trip.

Destinations and sightseeing vary widely from trip to trip:

  • Yellowstone Meadows and Bridger Lake
  • Thorofare Plateau and Thunder Mountain
  • Headwaters of the Yellowstone River including the North and South fork of the Yellowstone
  • Marston Pass
  • Thorofare, Open Creek, Silver Creek,  Pass Creek and Butte Creek

  • Pendergraft Peak and Upper and Lower Pendergraft Meadows
  • South Fork Falls on the South Fork of the Buffalo
  • North Fork of the Buffalo
  • Woodard Canyon


At Yellowstone Outfitters backcountry camps,  the only thing you need to worry about is how much hearty, appetizing food you want to eat. We take care of all the meal planning and prep so you can enjoy the trip like you should. If you have any allergies make sure you tell us! A good example of a camp dinner is steaks, potatoes, veggies, green salad, dinner rolls and apple crisp.

Horseback Riding Skill Level:

Don't let inexperience on a horse change your mind. You'll mount up on well-trained horses paired to your riding ability by our wranglers.

Each horse knows how to treat riders well. If you're nervous about difficult terrain, we can make sure your group heads somewhere spectacular based on comfort level. Wildflower meadows, Rocky Mountain ridgelines, or scenic fishing spots are all in reach.

Extra Activities:

We happily accommodate fishing on the scenic pack trips, but we offer Fly Fishing focused trips designed specifically for more serious anglers.
