Local Area


Harlowton, Montana is home to the largest wind farm in the state. Additionally, Harlowton is the county seat of Wheatland County and lies among the three mountain ranges of the Crazy, the Little Belt, and the Big Snowy Mountains. The area is part of the Lewis and Clark National Forest where hunting and fishing opportunities are abundant. Agriculture remains the predominant industry in the economy where the main products are wheat, barley, oats, hay, cattle, sheep, and honey. The Musselshell River flows through the town. Billings, Montana is 92 miles from Harlowton. 


Area Attractions


Deadman's Basin Reservoir


Deadman's Basin Reservoir is 20 miles from Harlowton and is 1,849 acres in size. At 3,892 feet in elevation, the reservoir is stocked with Rainbow Trout each year. The reservoir also provides good fishing for Brown Trout, Smallmouth Bass, and Whitefish. It is also popular for winter ice fishing. 


Little Belt Mountains


The Little Belt Mountains are a section of the rugged Rocky Mountains. They lie mostly in the Lewis and Clark National Forest. The unspoiled nature is used for logging and recreation. The mountains have been mined for silver since the 1880s and for sapphires since 1896. The famous Yogo sapphire is mined near Yogo Creek. The highest peak of the range is Big Baldy Mountain towering at 9,175 feet. Ponderosa pines and Douglas-firs predominantly fill the forest providing cover for black bear, elk, white-tailed, and mule deer. Rifle and archery hunting is excellent, and during the fall, hunter's orange can be spotted trekking up the trails. The hum of motorized vehicles can often be heard as it is a popular sport here as well. 


Crazy Mountains


The Crazy Mountains are the most prominent in Montana located northwest of Big Timber, Montana. The island range is approximately 30 miles by 15 miles in size and climbs to 7,000 feet in a dramatic transition from prairie to peaks! The highest pinnacle in the range is Crazy Peak at 11,214 feet. Ice, wind, and water sculpted the saw-toothed ridges and created more than 40 jewel-like lakes.


Musselshell River


The Musselshell River is a premier location for the catfish angler. Channel Catfish, Stone Cat, and Black Bullhead swim in these waters. Lack of access makes the river relatively peaceful and untapped. The average Channel Catfish is 6-7 pounds, and the best time to catch one of these whiskered fish is in the spring when they are headed upstream to spawn. Trout can be caught on the west side of Harlowton, and the catfish are best hooked toward the east side of town. 


Fishing Access Sites


Looking to wet a line and get out in the fresh air? The Harlowton Fishing Access Site consists of 5 acres with the Musselshell River and picnic areas. Other access sites include the Selkirk Fishing Access Site, the Highway Bridge 191 Access, and the Two Dot Road Access Site.




Take a day trip and experience the great outdoors in the picturesque scenery. Hiking trails exist in the area to accommodate beginners and expert hikers. The Neil Connection Trail is 3 miles long and well-traversed by mountain bikers. The Haymaker Canyon Trail drops down into the Haymaker Canyon and crosses several creeks. Take it up a notch and tackle the 13.5-mile East Fork Spring Creek Trail #608.
