Boating on the river was great. The scenery was fantastic. Clean water and fishing was also good. No record fish but the walleyes we caught made a nice meal. Its just too bad the DAPL protesters will be contaminating the water downstream of the Cannonball River with the upcoming thawing of snow. There is so much trash and human waste... More

Just like the Battleship (BB64) this splendid River is still going strong today ! Has been the lifeblood for generations of Native Americans and sped Lewis & Clark on their journey to the Pacific ! Pretty wide in lots of places but in late Fall was quiet & peaceful. As part of your travel of the Missouri you can also... More

We drove across the bridge at Bismarck, it was a nice bridge. used a different Bridge on the way back, not quite as nice but still a pretty cool bridge. touched the water later and it was cool and seemed very clean. Nice River.

Fished the Missouri river for Walleye. Was very cold but the state Game and Fish department had the ramps out. What a place to come and spend time on the water.

There are so many reasons to love the Misouri river. The whole area is steeped in history. There were any Native American tribes that lived along and used the river. There are many sites along the river that can be visited. Lewis and Clark travelled the river and wrote about it in their journals. Steamboats travelled the river. There are... More

We took the 100 mile trip east to view the Missouri River. We were making our home base in Medora, ND so this was a long trip just to see a river. It did not disappoint us at all. A beautiful wide River with lots of boats on the water. We got to get our feet wet as we wadded... More

We left Bismarck and took highway 1804, which follows the Lewis and Clark Trail. We stopped at the Double Ditch Indian Village SHS and walked the path. Very interesting history there. We continue up to Washburn and then took highway 200A over to highway 8 and made the loop back past Lake Sakakawea.Gorgeous country along the Missouri River. There are... More
