Overview

Overview

Bull River Pavilion offers an excellent view of the Bull River and surrounding forest. It's located right in the thick of a variety of recreational opportunities and provides a large group with the perfect place to picnic in northwestern Montana.

Natural Features:

The pavilion is located in a wooded area at the confluence of the Bull River and the Clark Fork River. The rivers empty into 3,200-acre Cabinet Gorge Reservoir, at an elevation of about 2,200 feet. A variety of trees forest the area, including cedar and Douglas fir.

Recreation:

The rivers give visitors ample opportunity for fishing, swimming and boating. Large and smallmouth bass, perch, rainbow and brown trout and squawfish can be found in the clear, cool waters. Boating, sailing and water skiing are also popular activities on the reservoir.

North of the pavilion and campground, visitors can see the historic Bull River Ranger Station, where a variety of hiking trails lead southwest, along Pillick Ridge to Squaw Peak, in the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness. Watch for wildlife in the area.

Visitors enjoy tours of the Noxon Rapids Dam, which is located less than 10 miles southeast of the pavilion. It is an earthen, gravity-type, hydroelectric dam that has been in operation for more than 50 years.

Facilities:

The accessible pavilion can accommodate up to 100 people and 20 vehicles. Electricity is available within the structure. It is also equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings and grills. Accessible flush toilets and drinking water are provided.

The adjacent campground offers over a dozen accessible sites for tent and RV camping. A boat ramp, fishing dock and access to the reservoir are available within the campground. All parking surfaces are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

Canoe rentals are available at a neighboring private campground.
