Campers must stay at designated campsites as the float down the 59-mile permit stretch of central Montana’s Smith River. Most of the sites are simple but choice, with fire pits, latrines and great views. Pictured here at Upper Cow Coulee Camp after a day of floating and fishing are, from left, Everett Coulter, Bob Landwehr, Gordon Hendrickson, Bob McKee and, in the distance, Dave Demmons.
