FOR BACKCOUNTRY Adventure owners Jerry Johnson, his wife Jacquelyn, and their two children Keith and Kendra, the Gallatin National Forest around West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park have been their backyard playgrounds from the time they could walk. Jerry, a second generation Montanan, grew up working in the hospitality industry with his parents owning and operating motels in West Yellowstone for the past 65 years. He attended Montana State University, served as mayor of West Yellowstone for five years, and still sits on the City Commission.

The staff at Backcountry Adventures has their own history as well-each with anywhere from 31 to 62 years of experience in the West Yellowstone area. The shop is located in two joined historic log cabins that belonged to one of the first families in West Yellowstone.

Join the Johnson family and the highly experienced, personable, and knowledgeable staff of Backcountry Adventures to create an adventure that will last a lifetime.
