Boating in the Upper Missouri River Breaks

Boating is one of the premiere activities in the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. After all, the Missouri River served as the pathway for Lewis and Clark, then the waterway for steamboats and a drawing card for fur trappers and traders. Floating or fishing on the Missouri River is a great way to spend a day at the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument.

Boater guides are available for the area between Fort Benton and Judith Landing (river miles 0-88.5), and between Judith Landing and James Kipp Recreation Area (river miles 88.5-149). The waterproof guides provide river miles, land ownership, topography and developed campsite locations.

Each guide sells for $4.00. These guides can be purchased by check or money order payable to the DOI/BLM.  Send them to:

BLM
P.O. Box 1389
Fort Benton, MT 59442

Call the BLM Fort Benton River Management Station for credit card purchases at (877) 256-3252.
