Enjoy this beautiful and historic stretch of river that has changed little since Lewis & Clark marveled at its "scenes of visionary enchantment." This section of the Wild and Scenic Missouri River is famous to history buffs for its Lewis & Clark history, Native American significance, steamboat history, and for the famous artists who painted the White Cliffs area. White sandstone cliffs, volcanic intrusions, and eerie rock formations still intrigue floaters today. This is a relatively calm water trip providing lots of time for relaxation and exploration. Experience firsthand the enchantment of this area with hikes to old homesteads, Native American sites, and the spectacular geological formations. Swim, fish, hike, or just relax and enjoy our comfortable, luxurious camps while your guides prepare superb meals and take care of camp chores.
Recently this area had its status elevated even further by being declared a National Monument. Join us on a 3-7 day river trip in your choice of raft, canoe, or kayak and experience firsthand the outstanding qualities that sets Montana River Outfitters apart from other outfitters.
For the Angler
While this part of the Missouri is not renowned for fishing, it does offer an unusually large variety of fish including, Trout, Walleye, Sauger, Smallmouth Bass, Pike, Channel Catfish, Fresh Water Drum, Sturgeon, and Paddlefish…all of these are present, and most are in good numbers. It is an interesting place for a fly angler to explore, or a Walleye fanatic to delve.
Other Area Trips
Montana River Outfitters offers several other types of family and group oriented trips near Great Falls or Fort Benton, including , half day, full day, and dinner trips. There is even a little known stretch of whitewater below Great Falls, the very same rapids that forced Lewis and Clark to begin their portage. Float past Sacajawea Springs and Lewis & Clark campsites on this scenic and historic section of the Missouri and see an area rich in history where little has visibly changed since Lewis & Clark traveled along these waters.
