Helena to Quapaw Landing (2 Days)

Our most popular overnight trip. Enter the Muddy Waters Wilderness, and let civilization fade to the background. Enjoy life on the sandbar as you relax and watch the world go by. On this trip you will visit the historic Montezuma Island, named for a sunken steamboat, as well as Island 62, which has bountiful amounts of Mulberries in the spring.

During low water, look for fossils, shells, bones, arrowheads and other treasures on the gravel bars.

During high water get reading for adventure as you boom downstream and make camp in the picturesque willow forests.

Experience required: None! This trip is open to everybody.
