SUMMER VACATION PACKAGE IN THE BACK COUNTRY (TENTS)

Camping does not mean you have to rough it completely! Join us for a back country family experience and let us do the cooking and clean-up. This first class tent camp has 14’ X 16’ wall tents, cots, wood stoves and many other lovely amenities.

Relax at Cabin Creek, our main tent camp in the Bob Marshall Wilderness (18 miles from the lodge – approximately five hours by horseback. Enjoy great pristine fly fishing, scenic day rides from the camp, fabulous campfire meals, day hikes and super photography possibilities. A perfect camp for a family vacation, fly fishermen and hikers.

A cabin will be provided at the Lodge the night prior to your back country pack trip departure.

$400.00 per person per day


ROVING/CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TRIP

Experience the famous Continental Divide aka ‘Chinese Wall’. Plan for a good amount of time in the saddle, averaging 4-6 hours per day. This trip is not recommended for kids under 12. It makes a memorable couples trip, ideal for backcountry riders, rock studying geologists, or those with a sense of exploration. Please note the below itinerary for this Quick Wall Trip:

Day 1—Travel to Cabin Creek Camp, North Fork of the Sun—15 miles (5 hours in the saddle)
Day 2—Travel west to the Head of Moose Creek—12 miles (6 hours in the saddle)
Day 3—Tour the Wall. This will be an unforgettable day!—9 miles (3-4 hours in the saddle)
Day 4—Return to Cabin Creek Camp—12 miles (4 hours in the saddle)
Day 5—Layover at Cabin Creek Camp; fish, hike, day-ride or relax! Do as little or as much as you desire!
Day 6—Return to Sun Canyon Lodge —15 miles (five hours in the saddle)

**There is a boat shuttle option depending on water levels…this is only offered when available during June, July and early August. The Gibson Reservoir is seven miles long and when full can eliminate two hours of horseback travel!

This is a once in a lifetime experience that will never be forgotten. A cabin will be provided at the Lodge the night prior to your back country pack trip departure.

$600.00 per person per day


WILDERNESS DROP/PICKUP/RE-SUPPLY SERVICE

Those travelers that are more independent and adventuresome may choose to have us drop them and their equipment at a designated location. This allows the outdoorsmen and women to experience the Bob Marshall and explore all it has to offer on their own. At the time of the drop, a specified time and date will be agreed upon for the client and equipment to be picked up. You may ride a horse in to the campsite, saving your legs to explore once there, or hike in free of your gear. If staying long-term, ask us about our re-supplying service.

We charge $300 for the packer/guide and $200 for each pack animal (riding horse or pack mule) for both the trip in and the trip out. We pack 120-140 pounds per mule. A general rule is to plan on one mule for each person. Please note: Parties of six people or greater will be charged for a second packer; both the day of travel and the day of return.

Please call or email to check for date availability and location recommendations.


SUMMER VACATION PACKAGE FEES / TERMS OF SERVICE

  • 50% deposit is required to confirm your reserved dates.

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

Cheri (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 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.

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.

Truly an amazing experience. Niki and Josh run a great business. Their staff is outstanding. I will definitely be back in the future.

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!
