Things To Do and See Just Outside of Town
There’s lots of things to do and see in addition to those in Yellowstone National Park and all a short drive from Yellowstone Cabins and RV. Want a taste of the wild wild west? Then be sure to catch the Wild West Yellowstone Rodeo. You’ll get to see real cowboys bull riding, calf roping, bareback riding and barrel racing! Kids can even get into the action and win a prize in the nightly calf chasing race.
Have you always wanted to ride a horse and explore some beautiful scenery? Well then, be sure and book yourself a guided trail ride with one of our local horse outfitters. No experience necessary. You’ll get to experience the beautiful and peaceful creekside scenery, all from atop a horse.
Finally, you’ll soon see that wherever you go here you’re bound to find water. So be sure to take a short drive and behold the magnificent Hebgen Lake just a few miles south of town. Go just a little farther, 27 miles out of town, and you’ll find Quake Lake, a lake that came to be in 1959 after a 7.5 earthquake caused a landslide that dammed up the Madison River, instantly covering dry land and forming the lake you see today. You can still see the tops of trees jutting from the lake’s surface, a haunting and eery sight. While you’re there don’t miss learning the history and geological data surrounding this incredible act of nature at the Earthquake Lake Visitor Center.
In conclusion, we can’t possibly list them all, but rest assured the list of things to do and see around West Yellowstone is endless!
