The geography is stunningly beautiful to say the least. Camping, water skiing, boating, fishing, you can do it all. Nearby town of Manila has fuel, lodging and great food. If you are into catching fish, I recommend chartering one of the many boats available.

Our September visit was perfect. Lots of fall colors. Not many people. Amazing canyon, especially at the Red Canyon overlook. Many of the campgrounds were closed however.

This is a small spot on the map, but the scenic drive and the canyon views are well worth the effort. The drive is not as long as Beartooth Pass, but the views are fantastic. Take the time to drive out to the overlook.

I can't offer any off-roading information, as we didn't do any - we stayed on the main roads on which we did receive cell service.
