What are the best lazy rivers in Montana?

Are you wondering, "Where do I find tubing near me in Montana?" Montana has some amazing lazy rivers, so if you are up for a day of tubing or kayaking, there are a number of places all throughout the state to do so. Here are a few of the best lazy rivers in Montana to enjoy some tubing near you:

  • Jefferson River: Some of the best tubing spots can be found along the Jefferson River, because of its slow winding nature. A leisurely float on the river will offer you scenic views and the chance to spot wildlife along the way. Start your adventure near Drouillard, just north of the Highway 287 exit.
  • Upper Missouri River: The section of the Missouri River in Breaks National Monument runs about 149 miles from Fort Benton to the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge. Enjoy beautiful canyon views and interesting rock formations as you slowly meander down the river.
  • Clark Fork River: This section of the river flows from Southwest Montana to the Idaho border. Start your trip in St. Regis and wind down the river following the St. Regis-Paradise Scenic Byway as it winds through Lolo National Forest. There are plenty of scenic places to stop and hike if you want to take a break from floating.
  • The Smith River: In the central part of the state you'll find this Montana lazy river trip that starts out at the Smith River Access Site and runs nine miles to Camp Baker. It seems like it should be a short trip but it could still take you most of the day since the river flows so gently. Float by tall cliff faces surrounded by dense forests.
