Gibson Reservoir Boat Services

*May throughout July (availability based on water levels)

Take in the magic of Gibson Reservoir. The reservoir is seven miles of beautiful country and history. Our boat offers comfortable seating for six passengers. This one hour tour is ideal for those that do not want to explore on foot or horseback.

Our shuttle service is perfect if day tripping in to fish, hike or have a picnic lunch. The shuttle also assists those heading into the Bob Marshall Wilderness for the week. We will drop and return to pick you and the party up at a predetermined (scheduled) date and time at the head of the Gibson Reservoir. The boat offers room for eight passengers with gear. This service proves to be a quick way to access the North Fork of the Sun River as well as the South Fork of the Sun River without having to hike or ride the seven miles to the top end, as well providing a head start on a hiking trip to the famous Continental Divide-Chinese Wall!

Occasionally, one needs to transport gear to the top end of the reservoir. If so, we utilize a flat deck pontoon to haul your goods, assisting you to your final destination.

$75 per person

SHUTTLES One Way and Round Trip
$65 per person (round trip) $35 (one way)

$200 (pontoon load)

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 Kadie

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 fun

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.

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.

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!
