Slough Creek has earned a reputation amongst backcountry hikers and anglers for having out of this world views, amazing trout fishing and secluded campsites. Folks from all over the world for decades have traveled far and wide to visit this special backcountry destination. Yellowstone boasts many wonders and the Slough Creek drainage is one of those wonders. We have two fantastic and unique day hike options from camp: one to McBride Lake and the other to the border of Yellowstone National Park. You may choose to make the day hikes a priority or bask in the joy of fly fishing the trout waters swirling by in Slough Creek. We highly recommend bringing a rod and reel (and license) along for this trip as you can fish from camp each evening while your guides prepare your gourmet mountain meals. This trip caters to those looking to fish and explore the majesty of Yellowstone’s clear water streams and creeks, as well as companions less interested in fishing and more interested in hiking.
We also have opportunities to see many different species of wildlife while hiking to and from our camp. The meadows are home to rich grasses, wildflowers and roaming ungulates like deer, elk, moose and bison.
