Bozemill Float Camp, located on the Eleven Point National Scenic River, can be accessed from the river or road. Boze Mill Spring forms a sparkling blue pool which produces between 12-14 million gallons of water per day. Aquatic plants add many shades of green to the spring branch. The historical 1880’s turbine and hand-layered rock wall from the Lucas Boze grist mill still exists. Boze Mill is nestled in a beautiful glen beside the Eleven Point River just above Riverton, and was once an important center of commerce where farmers could get wheat and corn ground into flour. Boze Mill Spring is 423 feet in elevation. Campground: Primitive dispersed camping allowed. A vault toilet is centrally located. Canoeing: This is a popular stopping point for people canoeing on the Eleven Point River. Fishing: Wade or float fishing for bass, rainbow trout, and pan fish. Wading occurs, but the extremely cold water and swift current may be hazardous. Travelers by road, park at the trailhead and can walk in to gain river access and picnic. Tables and grills are available.
