West Yellowstone Montana

West Yellowstone


West Yellowstone is located at the West Gate to Yellowstone Park and offers four seasons of recreational opportunity. Although the town only has 900 year-round residents, well over one million people enter Yellowstone Park each year via this small town.

Visitors across the globe come to take advantage of the endless possibilities for outdoor enjoyment, be it fishing the many blue-ribbon streams, or snowmobiling the nearly 300 miles of groomed trails accessible from hotel rooms and cross country skiing. West Yellowstone is ideally located at the center of fun and recreation.

West Yellowstone may well be one of the finest meccas for flyfishing enthusiasts. Many scenes from the movie "A River Runs Through It" were filmed on the Gallatin River north of West Yellowstone. Professional guides and outfitters throughout the area offer advice and service to visiting fisher-folk and are eager to help you make the most of your fishing excursion in Yellowstone Country.

With Yellowstone National Park at the front door, the hiking, biking, sightseeing, wildlife watching opportunities are endless, and the national forest lands which border West Yellowstone on the remaining three sides offer one breathtaking vista after another.
