Lava Creek Yellowstone touring vans at Old Faithful Inn and with kayaks on Hebgen Lake

Welcome to West Yellowstone and your own Lava Creek adventure!

We are centrally located in an area that offers some of the most beautiful public lands in the world, just outside the West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. There is a summer airport providing commercial jet service just 5 miles north of town, along with year-around airports in Bozeman (90mi) and Idaho Falls (125mi).

Finding us is easy! We are at 433 Hwy Ave (US 20), which runs through the center of town. For many of our trips, we'll be meeting you at the location that is most convenient for you, so when you make your reservation let us know if you'd prefer to be picked up where you are staying. We strongly encourage you to call ahead and reserve your trip or rental, but lcbldgdrop-ins and last minute reservations are welcome too!

For kayak trips, we'll generally have you meet us at the launch site unless other arrangements are made ahead of time (we'll email you directions to the launch site when you make reservations). We can also shuttle you from town or other area locations, just let us know when you reserve a trip if you'd prefer that option.

To find us in town:
If you are traveling from Bozeman, you'll be heading south on Hwy 191 to West Yellowstone. When you reach town, travel along Hwy 191 (Canyon St) until you come to the first light (we only have two in town, and they are fairly recent additions). At the first light, turn right and head west on US 20 for 3 1/2 blocks until you see our building on the right.

If you are traveling from Idaho Falls, we are on the left just past the junction of Geyser St and Hwy 20 (2 1/2 blocks from entering town).

If you are coming in from Yellowstone Park, travel down Yellowstone Ave to the first (and only) 4-way stop 91 block), then turn right and go two blocks to the second stop light. Turn left at the light and proceed down Hwy 20 3 1/2 blocks until you see our building on the right

There is parking on either side and in the back of the building, and our office is around front.
