Mark was a professional in all respects in explaining his services and booking our reservation. Even though we booked on short notice, he and Joe took the time to clean the kayaks before we left (a rarity with those who rent kayaks). The kayaks were nice and perfectly suited to our river paddle. Joe (who did the drop off and... More

Renting from Base Camp Bigfork was a great experience from start to finish. Mark took our call 'after hours' and worked hard to accommodate the schedule we needed. He was generous and kind in his interactions with our family. He took the time to listen to what we needed from our rental and then labored to make it happen. We... More

I was looking to knock "go dog sledding" off my bucket list and decided to film it (MUSH-12 Adventures) in hopes of inspiring others to get up and go after their own bucket lists. There are some good outfits in Montana for sure and I checked 'em all out, but, I chose Base Camp Bigfork because unlike most, they allow... More

Mark , his Wife, Joe, the kids, and the dogs are so amazing. They made this experience one for the books! Lots of fun trails, great history, and spectacular views of Montana! Thank you

Professional, flexible, and helpful for setting up a kayak trip for the following day. The Kayaks weren't perfect for us since the bow with dragging with a 6' man inside, however we still had a great time and achieved the adventure we wanted. We actually got back early by choice before our time was up. Didn't need more than 4... More

We had a custom guided kayak tour of Loon and Horseshoe Lakes. Our guide pointed out wildlife, explained about the area, and took care of all the gear. He even helped the 50+ year-old novice learn to kayak! You should try it! We loved it so much we have been recommending it!

We called Base Camp Big Fork as a last minute decision to appease the teenagers in the bunch who were tired of riding and driving and hiking. They wanted to go somewhere close and Kayak. Mark and his staff were extremely accommodating setting us up in less than a hour with 6 kayaks and 2 SUPs. He also gave us... More

I headed up to Big Fork from Missoula with a few buddies on a spur of the moment trip. We really wanted to try stand up paddle boarding but none of us have ever done it before. We found Base Camp Bigfork, gave them a call and had reservations for a few boards set up. It was only $40/ea for... More

We were treated so well by Ashley and Mark. We booked our trip on a whim, and they accommodated us with ease. The trip on the river was just the right length for our 19 year old daughters, but at 7.5 miles it may be a bit much for younger teens or children to be in their own kayak. Ashley... More

We've rented boats twice now from Base Camp Big Fork, and both times have been great. The equipment is nice, Mark is super friendly, and we've seen some beautiful places as a result. Not sure what the guided trips are like, but I suspect they are very nice as well - we've just rented boats and headed out to recommended... More
