A Modern Lodge In The Heart Of Montana
Welcome to the website of The Missouri Riverside, Lodging in the Missouri River Canyon. Located on the banks of one of the most productive fisheries in the world, in one of the most scenic areas of the northern Rocky Mountains, the most discriminating flyfisherperson will have the experience of a lifetime. Our goal is to provide a western flyfishing encounter that will make you want to come back frequently.
Feel the cool, clear Montana waters tug on your legs, view the eagle flying over your waters or hear your reel sing under the strain of a strong, wild Missouri rainbow. Relax on the Lodge patio while the aroma of pine and a wonderful dinner dominate your senses, until the mule deer come down behind the lodge as the sun sets. Come stay with us and reawaken your body to sensations that will revive your mind, spirit and soul!
The Missouri Riverside is located on a beautiful 14 acre parcel that affords our guests maximum comfort, easy access to fishing and a western Montana feel to your stay. Six spacious guest rooms with two full beds, beautiful solid oak furnishings, large private baths, optional TV and refrigerators will keep you comfy. Ample areas for hanging fishing equipment, chairs and tables to organize and large outdoor seats will facilitate the fishing experience.
The Main Lodge area is where our meals and socializing primarily takes place. A large window wall with comfortable furniture and a bar is the main social hub. A large covered patio with log furniture is a guest favorite for meals and visiting (maybe a few fishing stories).
Fishing is a short walk away with numerous access points within a few minutes walk and great launching opportunities within a few minutes drive. The Canyon floats are some of our favorites.
The Missouri Riverside was originally established by Arnie Gidlow in 1990, a place to relax, fish, hunt and just be. New owners, Victor Babbitt and Rachel Manley hope to keep it the same. Traveling to The Missouri Riverside is simple, located about halfway between Helena and Great Falls and about halfway between the towns of Craig and Cascade. Numerous Airlines serving both Helena and Great Falls are only 30-45 minutes from the Lodge.
We hope you love it as much as we do!
