While not always thought of as a "river running" destination (more fly fishing in the area rivers) there are certainly a few great rivers near Yellowstone. The Gallatin River and Yellowstone Rivers can both be day trips from the park. For more, check out our Yellowstone pages. You can start here: http://www.ohranger.com/yellowstone/news/2008/summer-montana%E2%80%99s-spectacular-national-parks Also, here are some guide services in the area: Montana Whitewater (800) 799-4465 Wild West Rafting (800) 862-0557 Geyser Whitewater (800) 914-9031 Have a great trip, and remember to be safe on the water!
