    Default Montana Creek?

    Has anybody here floated Montana Creek? I saw on the campground website that they have a shuttle, so I'm wondering how big of a raft the creek will allow.

    Default Not very big

    Shuttle is more than likley up to Yoder Rd. Creek Splits now and again from there down. Logs, sweepers, tight loops & chutes, low water with gravel all make for a good trip! Oh not a fun place to be making Moose-takes!

    I would not try anythign bigger than 12ft raft or the 13ft Fish Cat and it would be just fisher type people with no extra stuff.

    Willow would be a more friendly float. :-)

    Hope this helps!

    BlueMoose is right, it is tight with lots of sweepers; bring a small boat. I have floated it from Yoder to the bridge in a whitewater canoe. Also, I have seen people in one man cats. A small raft would be fun.

    Our raft is a 13' AIRE Wildcat cataraft. I've emailed the campground and I think we're gonna go ahead and go for it...now i'm just gonna have to find out if my 9' oars are too much

    Default That's not a bad choice

    I think you will be fine in what you have to have fun in. The Pro P or AIRE traveler would do fine as well however paddling I think would be much more of a challenge then oaring on the creek.

    Either way I am sure with some prep you will find the trip fun.
