The Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument Boaters’ Guide map set is produced by the Bureau of Land Management and is intended to enrich the Upper Missouri experience for both new and well-seasoned river floaters. In addition to updated maps, you will find information on river access points, campsites and safety tips as well as information on Lewis and Clark’s campsites and observations during their passage through this area in 1805 and 1806.
The 2011 Boaters Guide provides 19 maps of the river with an accompanying discussion about each map on a facing page. Information is keyed to designations by “river miles,” which is the distance along the river traveling downstream, beginning at Fort Benton. This Boaters’ Guide covers the river section from Fort Benton to Judith Landing (mile 88.5).
The continuation of the river is shown on the new Judith Landing to Kipp Recreation Area 2008 Boater’s Guide. It is formatted like the first Boaters’ Guide and also contains safety tips, maps, suggestions about camping and interpretive information to make your trip more enjoyable. Both booklets are printed on waterproof and tear-resistant paper.
The Boaters’ Guide booklets for this 149 mile stretch of the Upper Missouri are indispensable for your safe and memorable river experience. Boaters’ Guides are sold in sets only.
