Camp Bullwheel 7th season begins

We’ve hit the ground running this spring, catching the early fishing with great success and poised for our seventh successful season of hosting the most deserving.

The veteran’s organization “ Spoken Outdoors” converged at camp from May 3-7 with seventeen participants and five boats on the Madison River! Early May can be full-on springtime. . . or the opposite and we experienced every weather condition imaginable during those days. Fortunately, the vets were well prepared for all conditions and the fish were cooperative, so their time at camp and on the water was productive beyond expectations.

Ever the inventor, Peter has designed a new Pararaft frame that allows an oarsman in a wheelchair to ferry the craft for another fisherman in a wheelchair. This is a completely new approach that allows yet more independence and access to the remote areas of the Madison.

Camp BullWheel is the only place in the world where an individual with a high spinal cord injury can independently cast a rod and line from a boat. This incredible feat is the result of decades of innovative engineering work. Recent grants have helped to expand our fleet of accessible boats allowing even more individuals with spinal cord injuries and their companions to experience the beauty of the Madison Valley.


Your contributions go directly to the operations and facilities that make the Camp Bullwheel magic happen.


For 2024 there's plenty to do!  We anticipate needing cooks, oarsmen, cleaners, and construction volunteers.  Come be a part of the action!
