Tarkio, Montana

Whitewater Kayaking

Dates TBD. Stay tuned as we announce our 2018 programs lineup. 

Known for its towering purple cliffs, abundant wildlife, warm water, and friendly rapids, the Clark Fork River is one of the best places to learn how to kayak in the world. Tarkio River Lodge has a firm place in the history of First Descents and the kayaking community. There is a little bit of magic at Tarkio and we’ll bet that once you see this place for the first time, you won’t want to leave.
