Every family should come out West and do some horseback riding and camping out in the mountains to experience their heritage. A time of being out in God's creation is special. We consider our camp at Elbow Creek just that. It is a place that you can feel comfortable and bring the whole family for a unique experience.

While the mule string is being packed up, you are assigned a new friend- your own personal  riding animal, whom no doubt will be your best friend, when you are finished with your pack trip. They will give you memories for a life time. Our horses and mules are all seasoned veterans and know how to take care of you. Bear Paw Outfitters uses only this type of stock and takes no shortcuts to insure your safety. There is always an element of risk involved in these types of activities but we take all the necessary  precautions. We have taken thousands of people into the backcountry starting with our own children and never have had a serious injury.

Do you want to see Elbow Lake and breathe the fresh air? What a place to spend part of the day on a 3-day trip.

Elbow Lake one of God's many Masterpieces


Itinerary in general:

Everyone is expected to check in a week before your trip and the night before. We want to be sure you arrived in the area safely!

We will meet at the trailhead mid-morning.  Your gear will be packed up and onto the pack string. A delicious hearty sack lunch will be brought along for a lunch break on the way to camp. This a good time to stretch your legs. The horseback riding to camp is approximately  3 1/2 to 4 hours, including the lunch break. We will return at the end of your trip around 3 p.m. to the trailhead. The camp is nestled in the timber about 45 minutes off the main trail to Elbow Lake.

Most everything will be set-up prior to your arrival. Nice tents and outhouse facilities with regular seating. This is a Lady Friendly camp! You will sleep on comfortable cots with foam pads. This is the type of camp that if the weather turns bad  there is plenty of room in the dining tent to enjoy a warm game of cards, etc. You won't go hungry! Being up in the fresh mountain air seems to trigger the appetite so leave your diet at home. Our meals in the backcountry are served home style with a variety of menus, including homemade pies, quiches, fresh salad and fruit. Our drinking water source is a spring bubbling right out of the ground at camp. You will not taste any purer or fresher water!

We are under permit with the 'Gallatin National Forest'

 We follow all required bear storage policies and regulations. We keep a very clean camp. We have never experienced any bear problems because of this. So Mom do not worry.

This is an excellent pack trip for those wanting to spend some time in a pack-in camp and do a variety of things. This is a good overnight trip up to 3 days. We recommend a 3-day trip. The middle day is spent at camp relaxing, a trip to Elbow Lake, exploring the woods around camp or a trip to the creek. The group can decide what they want to do.

( Montana non-resident fishing license is required if fishing)
