Special Features:This typical cottonwood-covered island on the Yellowstone River provides a natural haven for waterfowl, bald eagles, and white-tailed and mule deer, making it an excellent site for wildlife viewing. It's also a good place to hunt for moss agates. During low water, a small channel can be accessed by foot to get to the island by foot, and access is always available by floating the river. Captain Clark and his men, along with Sacagawea and baby Pomp, are believed to have camped on the island on their return trip east to Saint Louis in 1806.
