One of only two Interstate Parks in the United States, Breaks Interstate Park is a one of a kind adventure destination. Appropriately called the Grand Canyon of the South, hundreds of thousands of visitors make their way to the park each year to enjoy its natural beauty and excitement. Some of the best and most challenging paddling east of the Mississippi river is found on the Russell Fork river. The river carved through the mountains to form the Breaks approximately 250 million years ago. There are miles of trails to accommodate all types of users, as well a a 12 acre lake for fishing and flat water enjoyment. Visitors can stay in the lodge, one of the cottages, a new luxury cabin, or rough it at one of the many camp sites. No matter what level or type of adventure you are looking for, it can be found at Breaks Interstate Park.
