About

Specimen Creek Outfitters is a family owned operation just North of Yellowstone National Park, in Gardiner, MT. 

The Johnson family homesteaded in Jardine in 1932 where Ralph Johnson and his siblings were raised. Come for the horseback views, and stay for 90 years worth of  Montana wilderness stories.

Who we are

Specimen Creek Outfitters is owned and operated by two friends: Abby Nelson and Ralph Johnson. Together, we are excited to share the tradition of peaceful guided rides, wilderness packing and quality hunts.
