This tent camp is located up the North Fork of the Sun River and is 16 miles into the Bob Marshall Wilderness (five hours on horseback). Cabin Creek sits at just over 5,000 feet in elevation and is a among a long river valley, rolling hills, lodge pole pines, aspens and burn areas. This terrain provides some of the finest elk and whitetail deer hunting in the state. Hunting in this camp is primarily done on foot and quite close to camp. Horses are always available and used during this hunt if you so desire. This camp is set up mid June and is used for summer fly-fishing as well as both archery and rifle season.
Yet another tent camp located up the North Fork of the Sun River, in the Bob Marshall Wilderness; however, a bit longer travel to get there (20 miles/seven hours on horseback). Lynx Creek sits at nearly 5,500 feet elevation with an elevation gain of up to 1,500 feet while hunting. This camp allows access to both species of deer (whitetail and mule) while in pursuit of your elk. Hunting is done on foot and horseback out of this camp. The majority of the elk hunting takes place within a few miles from camp. The Lynx Creek camp is set up the first of September and hosts both archery and rifle hunters.
This tent camp is located ten miles into the Lewis and Clark National Forest (three hours on horseback). At 6,400 feet elevation, this camp proves to be a perfect setting to harvest your trophy mule deer with a slight chance of elk. You will ride your horse out of camp to the specific hunting areas daily. Prepare for lots of glassing and spot and stalk type hunting. This country is rugged, steep and provides great vistas. During general rifle season, we hunt the deer summer range to their wintering range on the Rocky Mountain Front.
If you don’t feel up to a long horse ride and prefer a shower in the evenings, then stay in a small, rustic cabin and hunt out of our Lodge. All meals are taken in our main Lodge. Hunting is done on horse and four wheel drives for elk and both species of deer. Enjoy beautiful scenery and great hunting opportunity without the trek into the Wilderness. Our Lodge hunts are only during the general rifle season.
This is the most wonderful place to be. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in sun canyon and it has become our favorite place. I will continue to come here for as long as I can. This is a great place to make memories. Thanks Josh And Nikki. You are great people. Love you Charlie and KadieCheri (Facebook Review)
I went to my friends wedding and from the time we got there to check in the staff was so awesome and the Sun Canyon lodge camping area is absolutely beautiful! Sleeping in your tent next to the creek was wonderful to listen to! Fun fun funJennifer (Google Review)
We stayed here for several nights. The camp ground is terrific. Showers are amazing! The restaurant serves terrific meals and the prices are reasonable. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. They don’t treat you guests, they treat you like family. Thank you to Nikki, Josh and cowboy Nick for making our stay memorable and fun.
This is a beautiful spot. The fishing opportunities are excellent and you can’t beat the Bob Marshall wilderness for hiking and horseback riding. I’ve travelled all over the west and highly recommend this place.Mike (Yelp Review)
Outstanding! From my initial phone call inquiring about scheduling a ride for nine, of varying ages and experience, to the end of the beautiful, amazing ride our day was spectacular. Gracious, kind, knowledgeable and a beautiful setting. A++++Trip Advisor Reviewer
A true piece of heaven hidden in the Rockies. Whether you are a camping local or a cabin-renting out-of-state tourist, this is a place of peace, beauty, super clean facilities and some of the best burgers you will ever taste. The views are breathtaking and the staff is wonderful. A Montana “must do!” Would recommend without question or hesitation.Carrie (Facebook Review)
Truly an amazing experience. Niki and Josh run a great business. Their staff is outstanding. I will definitely be back in the future.Jeff (Google Review)
Sun Canyon Lodge is tucked in to a breathtakingly beautiful gulch with a cliff on one side and mountain views on the others. Josh and Niki are wonderful hosts, with Niki handling things at the Lodge and Josh guiding the wilderness piece of the adventure. The cabins surrounding the main lodge are charmingly rustic and immaculate. The main lodge, with the restaurant and bar, is warm and cozy. The stables and corrals are a short stroll away so you can visit the animals and if you’re lucky, see a new foal! Be sure to ask Josh and Niki’s young son Charlie for a tour.Nadine (Trip Advisor Review)
The staff was amazing. The scenery was spectacular. The accommodations were cozy. I really appreciated the whole operation–this was in the middle of covid and though the mask mandate did not apply to Teton County, they struck a balance between careful and adaptable. I recommend highly!Betsy (Yelp Review)
