Long before there were scenic byways, there was the Missouri River. Lewis and Clark took it to the Rocky Mountains, and eventually the West Coast, and back home. Today, you can travel along the water route and see an array of attractions along the way, including Garrison Dam.
Fact: The Missouri River is the longest river in North America.
On the other side of the river is the Cross Ranch State Park. A cottonwood tree in the park is estimated to be over 250 years old. The Park is a great place to camp, fish, hike, etc.
Near Cross Ranch State Park is the Cross Ranch Nature Preserve, located along the only free-flowing section of the Missouri River in North Dakota.
