DIY Package Fort Benton to Wood Bottom

This section of river is in the Missouri River Breaks National Monument and includes Lewis and Clark campsites, lush cottonwood bottoms, steep river bluffs and ample farmland. Fort Benton to Wood bottom is a 4-7-hour trip. The time you spend on the river depends on how much you paddle, weather and river levels. This section is better suited for those that are looking to paddle and be on the water longer. This section covers a lot of miles and is not for the faint of heart.
