The upper Missouri River offers easy family floats as it flows through narrow canyons and Rocky Mountain landscapes. Floaters on the upper Missouri will pass by some homes and subdivisions while occasionally glimpsing the Missouri River Recreation Road. Despite these glimpses of civilization, wildlife may still be seen and river floating on the upper Missouri is pleasant. Four picturesque lakes formed by hydroelectric dams are good places to learn the art of canoeing or rafting. An extra benefit of the upper Missouri River is its reputation as a blue-ribbon fishing area with plentiful brown and rainbow trout. Numerous public river-access points allow considerable variation in the potential lengths of river trips. This eTrail provides detailed information on family-friendly things to do. The destinations include: Holter Dam Access Site to Prewett Creek Fishing Access Site Float, Gates of the Mountains Boat Club to Departure Point Campground River Float, Holter Lake Departurte Point Campground to Holter Lake Recreation Site Float, Totson Bridge to Indian Road Access Site Float, Missouri River Recreation Area, and Beartooth Wildlife Management Area.
