The main fork Stillwater river is a perfect outing for a day trip, and includes a variety of beginner to advanced features. Let us do the driving!
The Stillwater River is a great selection for short or long hikes, Montana scenery, fishing and is near the Woodbine Falls (just a few miles away).
The Stillwater river has several accesses for picnics, hikes and camping. The trail head begins at Stillwater Trail head and follows the Stillwater River for 3.25 miles to Sioux Charley Lake, a popular day hike destination, but also continues on for another 23 miles for the enthusiast. From Sioux Charley Lake the trail continues the entire length of the drainage to Lake Abundance. Elevation change: 3000 feet. The trail is open for the following uses: hiking, horseback riding. Woodbine Campground, Woodbine Falls Trail (# 93), and the Old Nye Picnic Area and Fishing Access are also in the Stillwater drainage.
The parking and campground areas are right along the famous Stillwater River that is home to Rainbow trout, Brown trout, and Cutthroat trout. It is open to fishing with a valid state or out-of-state Montana fishing license. Just a few miles up the road is the Main fork Stillwater River trail head.
Resident and Non-Resident Montana Fishing Licenses are available at most outdoor stores, many fishing shops, and in several cases at participating gas stations in smaller towns. Montana Fishing licenses are also available online at Montana.gov.
