Quick Details

The North Fork of the Shoshone River through the Shoshone National Forest (the first designated National Forest in the world) provides a truly exceptional river experience unlike any other. Grizzly bears, moose, bighorn sheep, buffalo, in addition to the stunning beauty of this alpine environment makes this a can’t miss outdoor adventure. Wyoming River Trips was the first to run commercial river trips here and is the ONLY river outfitter permitted through the Shoshone National Forest on this section of river.

Wyoming River Trips is the only outfitter permitted to operate entirely within the Shoshone National Forest. The North Fork of the Shoshone River is a stunning section of exciting class II+ -III whitewater. This section is typically 14 river miles, but during high water the trip will extend up to nearly 20 river miles, making for a full and complete day on the water!

North Fork of the Shoshone Full-day Adventure

Your adventure begins just five miles east of Yellowstone National Park in the Shoshone National Forest. This stretch of river will transport you back in time where it is not hard to imagine the Cody Country of 100 years ago. Each bend in the river brings new breathtaking views. You may see bighorn sheep on cliffs, moose grazing along the river’s edge, a grizzly forging a hillside above the river, or eagles and osprey soaring in the Wyoming sky. You will feel the thrill of anticipation as you round the bends in the river above Morman Creek Rapid, Gunbarrel and others and then descend down the shoots of churning whitewater. This natural flow river is truly unique and it’s fluctuating flows mean no two experiences are the same. Because this river is fed from melting snowpack, it has a shorter season than most. Don’t miss it! A great option for wedding parties, corporate events, and special occasions. Give us a call to plan something special!

Wyoming River Trips is the only commercial rafting operation permitted on the Shoshone National Forest.

All passengers should be in good health and have the ability to move dynamically in a water environment. Passengers should feel comfortable paddling. If you have concerns over whether or not you meet these criteria, please give us a call to discuss trip options.
