Recreational Home Sites on Fall River

Tucked in the southwest corner of Yellowstone National Park, the Fall River basin is truly a fisherman’s and waterfall lover’s paradise. The Fall River is aptly named because of the many waterfalls along its tributaries. This is the main river that drains the Cascade Corner of Yellowstone Park. The four major streams in the Fall River drainage are the Bechler River, Boundary Creek, Mountain Ash Creek and of course the Fall River. They begin on the Madison and Pitchstone plateaus and they carve canyons across Yellowstone Park’s southwest corner. Some of Yellowstone’s most beautiful waterfalls are in this area. With nearly 80 inches of annual precipitation, the Fall River drainage is one of the wettest portions of Yellowstone National Park. The Fall River is a backpacking, fisherman and photographer’s nirvana. The Fall River is the largest Henrys Fork tributary. The Fall River descends through the Birch Hills, flowing west to where the Bechler River joins it up-river of Cave Falls. For 14-miles from Cave Falls to Concrete CCC Bridge the river is largely inaccessible by road. Below CCC Bridge the River runs along Trestle Bridge Ranch several miles above the Fall River / Henrys Fork confluence.
