Clarks Fork of The Yellowstone

The Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone flows through the Shoshone National Forest through the awesome Clarks Fork Canyon into BLM-administered public lands, located just inside the mouth of the canyon.

The unparalleled landscape and recreational opportunities create an unforgettable experience. The area displays geology that is internationally studied, within the Nez Perce (Nee-Me-Poo) National Historic Trail, offers abundant fishing opportunities, and a popular access point to explore further into the Shoshone National Forest.
