Experience luxury accommodations, impeccable service and gourmet fare at Missouri River Ranch. Ideally located just upstream of Craig, Montana, this is a Missouri River fly fishing lodge experience second to none.
MODERN COMFORT & AUTHENTIC MONTANA STYLE
Relax in one of 13 unique guest rooms, completely renovated in 2020 with comfortable new beds, tiled bathrooms and high-speed internet. From private decks overlooking the mountains, drift boats ready for the evening hatch, and after-dinner campfires, your Montana outdoor experience won’t end with guided fishing.
MISSOURI RIVER RANCH
Reinvent your office on the Missouri River with high-end accommodations and private access to world-class fly fishing. Our experienced staff will customize a trip to meet your company goals while creating a quintessential Missouri River lodge experience. High-speed internet, indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, and the convenience of starting or ending your fishing day directly from the ranch sets you up for a productive week on and off the river. The ranch is an easy 45-minute drive from both Helena (HLN) and Great Falls International (GTF) airports, meaning you can maximize your time getting to know Montana.

Payment and Cancelation Policy
A 25% non-refundable deposit is due upon booking to secure your reservation. An additional 25% is due 120 days prior to your trip. Full payment is due 90 days prior to your trip. All payments are NON-REFUNDABLE. Refunds are not available for reservation changes.
Due to the nature of our advanced bookings, we must make no exceptions to our cancellation policy. Adverse weather conditions or other Acts of God are possible on any trip, and in some situations, can negatively affect fishing conditions or loss of fishing days. Refunds are not made if fishing days are lost due to adverse weather-related conditions or associated Acts of God. If unexpected events such as global pandemics, wars, travel restrictions, etc. prevent the trip from occurring, Missouri River Ranch will work to assist in exploring any deviation from the standard policy. If you are at all concerned with a cancellation possibility, we strongly encourage you to purchase trip insurance.
We no longer accept payment by check due to inconsistent mail service.
Unexpected events do arise and we strongly recommend that you purchase trip insurance. In light of COVID-19 or any other similar virus, we do know that many standard trip insurance policies will not cover cancellations or offer compensation due to pandemics, epidemics or fear of travel, which is why “Cancel For Any Reason” policies are highly recommended. Please read and research all trip insurance policy details to fully understand coverage.
Minimum Age Guest Policy
As we cater primarily to adults, we have a very convivial atmosphere with an open bar and no facilities for children. Our minimum age guest policy is to maintain the comfort and safety of all guests and find that the property is best suited to guests 13+.
A buyout of the entire property would allow for children of all ages, bearing in mind that children are not to be left unattended at the property to be watched by staff, and may not be old enough to fish on the drift boats (at the discretion of our Outfitter).
Transportation / Logistics
Guests can drive directly to the Lodge. You may drive your own car or rent one at the airport. We strongly recommend reserving rental cars well ahead of your trip. Uber/Lyft Service might provide a ride to the Lodge but return trips have proven unreliable. If not renting a car, roundtrip transportation should be secured well in advance.
