Overall Rating

Nice spot along river and highway, western boundry of Chas. Russell 1.1 million acre Wildlife Refuge. Launch on the river to recover boats coming from Ft. Benton. No electric, generators OK, water and dump nearby and a host if help is needed. Sites qre gravel and very private.

The Refuge is boondocker's heaven, busy during deer, elk and upland bird season. Must caution about wet weather here. A heavy dew can turn dirt roads to gumbo that will keep you stuck for days. South of the river the roads are mainly dirt. North of the river mostly gravel.

The scenery and wildlife observation is outstanding. Starting mid to late Sept. the elk rut begins and you can watch the harem building as you sit in you vehicle at roadside. This is wild and remote country.
