We go with another couple and didn't have room on our car for two canoes. We rented from Adventure Bound Outfitters and highly recommend!!
It's really slick- they drop you off with your canoes then drive your car to the end. When you get to the end, just park canoes along fence, hop in car and head home- sweet!!
Paddled starting from Coal Banks Landing and took out at the first paved road 4 days later on the 200th anniversary of L & Cs up river expedition. We attempted to camp at the same location on the same date for one of our nights. Absolutely a great easy paddle. For example, within the first hour my son and I were on the river, a big deer jumped into the river and swam across the river 150 feet in front of our canoe like we were not even there!
Soh Crates, is mid May too early to run? We would like to do the stretch from Ft Benton to Kipps Rec area mid May. We are going to the Green ( Utah)first. Thinking about the 14th to 23rd for the Missouri. Once we drive to the Green another 800 miles to Montana does not seem to be a big deal.
What are the temps and the rain amounts like at that time of the year?
