Every year the 2nd weekend in July the Annual Yellowstone Boat Float in Livingstone MT takes place. Floaters retrace the route of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The Yellowstone river is the largest undammed river in the lower 48. The more the merrier, so grab your boat and join the float. We float and camp for 3 days. A kick-off party starts in Livingston Thursday night, at the 49er Bar. Free camping is provided at Mayors Landing by the 49er Bar. Rafts start launching from there at 8 am of Friday morning. Lunch is provided in Springdale. The float continues on to Otter Creek camp ground in Big Timber, where camping is provided by Godzilla’s float crew. BBQ provided at the camp ground.
Floating will then start on Saturday morning at Otter Ck. and go to Reed Point. Camping, food, drinks and a street dance will be provided by the Water Hole Saloon and the Reed Point community. On Sunday AM there will be breakfast in the campground provided by Reed Point community and floating will continue on to Columbus where we will get out and anxiously wait for one more year.
