Cool dog

It’s a nice clean campsite to begin your boating adventure on the river with lots of space. The cabin has free WiFi to finish up work before heading into nature. The bathrooms are pretty average for outhouses as well. Also, if your lucky, the camp’s doggo May visit you. He is free to pet!

Great camp along the Upper Missouri River Breaks

This is an enjoyable campground along the Upper Missouri River Breaks on river mile 41.5. Site has two vault toilets, 13 picnic table, and 9 firer rings. Visit Center provides WiFi. This is a major launch area for floating the Upper Missouri Rive Breaks National Monument. Very friendly camp staff with vast knowledge of the river.

Floating that Mighty Mo?

This site is used almost entirely for people floating the wild and scenic Missouri River past the White Cliffs and the Hole-in-the-Wall. The site has a vault toilet, lots of room for your rig and obviously has river-front access. Bugs can get horrendous here in late summer. It's in the open with few trees, but it is what it is. It's the spot to rest/put-in/take-out on a float.
