Development, Improvements, and Enhancements
In 2008, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) acquired 163 acres of land along the Sun River on Highway 200 between Vaughn and Sun River for the purpose of establishing a fishing access site (FAS) known as Largent’s Bend FAS. The site was named for John Largent, a prominent settler and merchant in the Sun River Valley and founder of the nearby town of Sun River. FWP proposes to develop Largent’s Bend FAS including two parking areas, one to accommodate four single vehicles near a fishing pond and a second to accommodate four truck/trailers and 4 single vehicles near an improved gravel boat ramp Also included in the proposed project are regulatory and informational signs, and boundary fencing. A concrete vault latrine and gravel access road, requiring slight modification, are already present on the property.
