Floaters find this isolated cottonwood-covered Yellowstone River island an excellent spot to view wildlife, envision the Corps of Discovery's travel along the river, and hunt for moss agates. The site is a haven for waterfowl, bald eagles, and whitetail and mule deer. Though there are no designated hiking trails, the site is level and easily walked througout the entire 269 acres. At 2,371 feet in elevation, this site has no formal development and care is needed when crossing side channels. Crossing is not recommended if water is flowing. Hand launching for lightweight crafts for boating.
