A Bureau of Reclamation lease accompanies the sale of the property and transfers to the owner. The leased land allows private access bordering a tributary of the Missouri River named the Marias River. Over and above that, you can revel in having your own private access to the Marias River at the entrance to the Tiber Reservoir. The surroundings of the reservoir and river provide a natural habitat for upland birds including Sharp-Tail and Sage Grouse, Ring-Necked Pheasant, and Hungarian Partridge. During migration, an abundance of waterfowl, including ducks, geese, and shorebirds can be found on the reservoir and in the surrounding wetlands. A variety of Songbirds also frequent the upland areas. The bays on the shoreline provide ideal fishing locations as you can catch Walleye and Northern Pike in the reservoir. The Marias River below offers a chance to reel in Rainbow and Brown Trout. The Bureau of Reclamation maintains eight recreational areas around the reservoir and one interpretive site as well.
