Lower Blackfoot River Corridor


Twelve miles of the Lower Blackfoot River flow through public lands only 20 minutes east of Missoula. During the heat of the summer, the Lower Blackfoot River Corridor is an excellent place to cool off alongside a large portion of the Missoula population. Crowds disappear during the other nine months of the year, and the Lower Blackfoot river Corridor becomes a great place for fishing, whitewater boating, and wildlife viewing.


The Lower Blackfoot River Corridor has a campground, boat ramp, Restrooms, day use sites, and a non-motorized trail along an old railroad grade. Some Sites Accessible to Persons with Disabilities.
