Isolated and shaded by cottonwood trees, this Yellowstone River island offers visitors an excellent spot to view wildlife and to hunt for moss agates. Because this rich riparian area contains abundant water and plant life, it provides the perfect habitat for a variety of wildlife. The site is a haven for waterfowl, bald eagles, fox squirrels, and whitetail and mule deer. Captain William Clark and his men, Sacagawea and baby Pomp, are believed to have camped on Pirogue Island on their return trip east to St. Louis on July 29, 1806. Interpretive signs in the park discuss the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery and more history of this island. The island can be accessed by floating or, during low water, by foot through a small channel.
