Bighorn Canyon - 2014 Guided Kayak Program Dates & Information:
Bighorn Canyon is again offering a guided kayak program this year on the Bighorn Lake. Programs will be presented on both ends of the lake. The programs will cover proper paddling techniques, self-recovery of capsized kayak, general safety precautions, and fun facts about Bighorn Canyon presented by park rangers.
These excursions will be offered free of charge on a first come, first serve basis. Room in the park equipment is limited to 10 participants. Up to 5 participants with their own equipment are welcome to join for a total of 15 participants. All participants must call ahead and register with Bighorn Canyon NRA.
There will be an opportunity to meet the guides and familiarize yourself with the equipment on July 19 (Friends of Bighorn Lake Day) at Horseshoe Bend and on July 12 at Ok-A-Beh.
To register for programs on the South District call the Bighorn Canyon NRA Visitor Center at 307-548-5406. To register for programs on the North District call the Yellowtail Dam Visitor Center at 406-666-3218.
All trips are subject to cancellation at the guide's discretion, e.g. due to bad weather. Registered participants will be informed if there is a cancellation. If you must cancel your reservation, please do so as soon as possible to allow us time to fill your vacancy.
*The Ok-A-Beh to Black Canyon trip will be limited to adults age 18 and up. The distance into Black Canyon will be dependent on the group.
