Fodor's Review

The Madison, Jefferson, and Gallatin rivers come together to form the mighty Missouri River within a National Historic Landmark. At 2,540 mi, the Missouri is the country's longest river. Lewis and Clark named the three forks after Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin, Secretary of State James Madison, and President Thomas Jefferson. The park has historical exhibits, interpretive signs, picnic sites, hiking trails, and camping.
