One of the completely unique offerings of Forrester’s Bighorn River Resort is taking one of our high-country excursions to one of our remote outpost camps in the Cloud Peak Wilderness.
We have a license to outfit horse-back, pack and hiking trips into this pristine part of the Big Horn National Forrest. During your journey up to the camp you will encounter tumbling freestone creeks, forests of limber pine and Douglas fir giving way to glacial bowls rising out of mirror-calm lakes.
One can choose from day trips, overnights or multi-day expeditions. The surrounding streams and lakes are full of native brook trout, curious cutthroats and, gorgeous golden trout. These fish see very little pressure and it is not a rare occurrence to have a 50-fish day, all on terrestrials!
Additionally, we offer a combination trip between the Bighorn River and Cloud Peak Wilderness where you can spend two days fishing on the Bighorn for tail water browns and rainbows, then jump on horseback and pack into the mountains for an entirely different fishing experience.
