“Paradise for smaller rigs”
This is the best fishing access site I’ve seen. It feels more cared-for than many of the others — I saw a USFS truck cruise through and the additional notes on the entrance board made me feel like it’s got more eyes on it.
It’s right next to a residential house, which I don’t usually find appealing, but there was a woman out front re-painting her white picket fence and she gave me a friendly wave as I drove in. It’s quiet and most of the sites have fire pits; a few have picnic tables. There’s a pit toilet.
This is not a good spot for big rigs — even if you can fit into one of the six or so small-ish spots, the site is not really intended for that scale of vehicle.
The Boulder River is pretty and there are plenty of walking trails branching off from the site. I parked at the first site near the entrance and saw my first wild grizzly about .25 miles away in the adjacent field. 🐻
Big Timber is a cute town and I’d be happy to stay here at length. On 9/20/20 the usual road in was closed (if you’re coming from 90) so you have to go through town, take 298 S, and loop back north. It was worth it (and I doubt the construction will last long.)
whitney would stay here again
