Milk River

Milk River Professional Review and Guide

"Named for its whitish color, the lengthy Milk winds through remote prairies and seldom-visited cottonwood bottoms alive with wildlife. The river is Class I its entire length. Suitable for beginners except at high flows, it is an excellent choice for a long-distance float trip.

While not a classic beauty, the Milk River contains some of the least-explored water in Montana. At first glance, the sluggish and turbid Milk might not seem as appealing as famous rivers like the Blackfoot or Madison. But those who seek solitude, wide open spaces, and excellent wildlife viewing opportunities won’t be disappointed."
