Sight to See: Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument

Located about 42 miles west of Buffalo Camp, the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument offers visitors the chance to take in stunning rock formations, steep bluffs and views of the Missouri River. A significant site for several Native American tribes, the Breaks feature prominently in the journals of Lewis and Clark and were the site of many paintings by western artist Charles M. Russell.

A tour of the Breaks offers visitors a compelling overview of the region’s history, wildlife and scenic beauty. Visitors to the Breaks can enjoy the prairie landscape while taking a relaxing float on the river, try their hand at fishing or take in scenic vistas while hiking along the shoreline or surrounding grasslands.
