Pirogue Island State Park

Miles City
Miles City, MT 59301


Visitors find this isolated, cottonwood-covered Yellowstone River island an excellent spot to view wildlife.  You can envision the Corps of Discovery’s travel along the river, and hunt for moss agates.

The park is a haven for a wide variety of bird species including passerines, belted king fishers, shore birds, waterfowl, bald eagles, and wildlife such as: whitetail and mule deer.

There are 2.8 miles of designated hiking trails, but the site is level and visitors can easily walk throughout the entire 269 acres. During hot weather, when the side channels aren't flowing, adventurous visitors can take a nice refreshing tree shaded walk down the side channels punctuated with wading the remaining pools of water.

At 2,371 feet in elevation, this site has no formal development and care is needed when crossing side channels. Crossing is not recommended if water is flowing.
