McDaniel Outfitters specializes in guided pack trips in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex.

It is our goal to provide a relaxed, authentic, and personalized guided backcountry pack trip for all my guests. In my years of experience packing throughout the west, I have found the Bob marshall to have world-class camping, fishing, and sightseeing. You and all your gear will be carried into the wilderness on Montana’s finest mules and horses, meals will be prepared and served by our professional backcountry chef, and all your needs catered to by supportive and knowledgeable crew members.  -Chris McDaniel
