Missouri River Outfitters
Guided Canoe Trips

 Canoe Trip on the Upper Missouri River


We believe guided canoe trips should be safe, fun and plush. Guided trips offer the perfect opportunity to bond with and enjoy family and friends both old and new without the housekeeping and cooking. When folks tell us, after a trip, that they just had one of the best times of their lives we really take it to heart. To provide a setting where lifetime memories are made is very satisfying indeed. Take a few minutes and read what one of our guests had to say.

We use only “Spring Bar” wall tents and cots. After all, our trips are more like safaris than mountain climbing expeditions. We endeavor to dazzle with our river cuisine and our guests’ assure us we have succeeded on every single trip. Our guests have the option of paddling a canoe or kayak. If you are new to paddling have no fear, our guides will have you paddling with confidence before lunch!

The trip dates listed are a rough schedule subject to change, that is, we can change launch dates and trip duration depending on the wishes of those contemplating a trip with us. When we receive deposits on any trip the dates are locked in. A $200 deposit per person is required and the trip must be paid in full sixty days before departure. Please consider purchasing trip insurance if you foresee any conflicts or issues that could cause you to cancel your trip.

All our trips begin and end at the public boat landing in Fort Benton. Your trip includes all transportation from and back to this point. All meals are included from lunch on the first day to lunch on the last day. Sorry, you won’t lose any weight with us! All camping gear is provided, including, two-person wall tents, cots, sleeping bags, and water- proof bags for your personal gear. We use large river tripping canoes chosen for utility and stability. Kayaks are available as well. We sometimes send a gear boat ahead on larger trips (over 10). Generally speaking we limit our trips to 16, including guides, however, each year we seem to make an exception. Our average group size is 10. Our guide to guest ratio is 1-4.

Our Trips
We believe guided trips should be safe, fun, and plush. Guided river trips offer the perfect opportunity to bond with and enjoy family and friends both old and new without the housekeeping and cooking, to say nothing of the distractions of our hectic lives. When folks tell us after the trip that they just had one of the best times of their lives, we really take it to heart. To provide that kind of experience for people is very satisfying indeed.

Lunches are shady, refreshing social occasions, with lots of fresh fruit and salads, such as Meredith's famous curry chicken salad. We also provide lots of ice cold drinks and home baked goodies. When we arrive at camp we serve appetizers such as a goat cheese with homemade red pepper jelly with crackers as you relax with a cold drink, take a swim, or read a volume from the river library and relax in the shade of a cottonwood tree. Dinners are served around seven with careful attention to detail. Delicious entrees such as Grilled Champagne Salmon or Dutch Oven Chicken and Dumplings. Fresh salads and local produce along with creative desserts like Meredith's famous Rum Cake or Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler round out the menu.

With the long daylight hours of high summer we will have plenty of time for an evening hike to view the sun setting on our river camp and wildlife beginning to stir around us. As darkness falls and the sky fills with a million stars, we'll sit around the fire and enjoy easy conversation between new friends until tired and happy campers turn in.

Birds awake us at daybreak and the aroma of fresh coffee and sagebrush drifts into your tent. Your guide hands you a cup of coffee while another points out a pelican gliding by... and another day begins. After a breakfast of French toast with Strawberries and Canadian bacon we're off for a hike into the "White Cliffs". When you return to camp, lunch is ready and the canoes have been packed for the days paddle. This will be your life for the next few days as you reconnect with a way of travel and exploration that will leave you rejuvenated and energized at the same time.
