Area Attractions


Zoo Montana

Little Bighorn Battlefield


This national monument is 15 miles southeast of Hardin, Montana, and is famously where Custer took his last stand.


Pompey’s Pillar


The Expedition of Lewis and Clark gives us a historical account of their journey through Montana, and at Pompey’s Pillar, you can view William Clark’s signature carved in stone. It is the only physical evidence left of the Expedition and will leave a lasting impression on you as well!


Pictograph Cave State Park


Come to contemplate the origins of humankind when they were prehistoric hunters. The three main caves, Pictograph, Middle, and Ghost, display hundreds of pictographs or rock paintings with the oldest rock art being over 2000 years old!


Lake Elmo State Park


An outdoor oasis that offers swimming, hiking, boating, sailboarding, fishing, and picnicking, this 64-acre reservoir is just inside city limits!


Big Lake


Big Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) lies in the Hailstone Basin and is the terminal lake in a series of lakes which include Hailstone and Halfbreed National Wildlife Refuges. The WMA encompasses 4,409 acres of land owned by FWP plus an additional 354 acres of State and BLM land. Primary hunting opportunities include waterfowl, upland birds, antelope, and mule deer. No fishing opportunities exist at Big Lake. The elevation of the lake is approximately 3,940 ft.


The Yellowstone River and Premiere Blue-Ribbon Fishing


This constant, unwavering river flows throughout the Yellowstone River corridor just as it has for centuries: in its natural state. It has not been dammed nor tamed and is the longest, free-flowing river as such in the lower 48 states. It meanders through a variety of scenery and various topographies from steep canyon walls to lazily flowing through farm country. Its fresh, clean waters provide fishing, floating, swimming, and rafting. The nutrient-rich areas surrounding the river are a paradise for wildlife making hunting especially good as well. Enjoy viewing wildlife such as bald eagles, elk, white-tailed deer, and black bears. Certainly, you will want to take advantage of the world-class fishing known internationally. These premier trout waters produce an abundance of big trout and native Yellowstone cutthroat trout. In the upper half of the river, species found are cutthroat trout, rainbow trout, large whitefish, and brown trout. In the lower half or warmer waters, species found are large walleye, catfish, and sturgeon. The beauty of fishing the Yellowstone River is its length and ample space. Anglers are not crowded with others and have the length of the river to spread out. The beautiful landscape encompassing the banks enhances the whole experience. Dry fly fishing is excellent as well as sub-surface fishing with nymphs and streamers.


Beartooth Highway


The famous Beartooth Highway has 68 miles of winding roads waiting to be navigated. This unique highway climbs to the highest elevation in both Montana and Wyoming! It’s considered an All-American Road that holds a designation as one of the most beautiful in America. With switchbacks and glorious scenery, travelers can gape at wildlife and the snow-capped Northern Rocky Mountains. The highway is traditionally open from Memorial Day through Columbus Day.
