Southeast Montana

Southeast Montana


Nowhere does cowboy culture and American Indian lore live on like it does in Southeast Montana. While this region is largely made up of ranch land and rural communities, Southeast Montana’s spectacular badlands and rolling prairie play host to real-life cattle drives and rodeos, wild-horse stampedes and powwows.


Favorite things to do

Out here, big sky meets big adventure. It’s the kind of place to slow down and fall in love with Montana. It’s the kind of place where cowboys still ride horses across the open plains. Out here, you will be welcomed with an abundance of western hospitality. Visit Southeast Montana and take a moment or two to view the horizon from all directions.


From Badlands, battlefields and bucking horses to recreation, rocks and rivers, Southeast Montana is an adventure for outdoor lovers, history buffs, fossil finders and eager explorers. Find a new story in the spirit of the Old West. Discover Indian Nations, trace the footsteps of Lewis and Clark and wander sacred fields where storied battles were fought. Check out the best cowboy bar in Montana, dig for dinosaur bones, and make your way through friendly towns where strangers smile and say hello.

Yellowstone River Valley

In Southeast Montana, you can experience the untamed Yellowstone River Valley, as the river flows unchecked toward its rendezvous with the Missouri River. You can kayak in the gentle waves of Bighorn Canyon. You can watch the sunset paint the badlands with red and gold from your vantage point along the scenic drive to Makoshika State Park. Visit Montana’s mountains, see Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, but don’t forget that you will never get the full picture of Montana’s natural wonders unless you experience the badlands, canyons, rivers and prairies of Southeast Montana.

Great People. Amazing Views. Beautiful Landscapes

Southeast Montana, known as Custer Country, is home to the Custer National Forest, a scenic wilderness area. The landscape consists of gently rolling plains and miles of oddly-shaped ridges, cliffs and cones that have become known as Montana’s badlands, the Southeast region is a jumble of bizarre topography and complex human history.
At the northeastern tip of the region, is Makoshika State Park, 11,000 acres of some of Montana’s most spectacular countryside. The largest state park in Montana, Makoshika is a geologic wonder. The badlands are believed to be the product of a vast fire that exposed two sedimentary layers to years of water, erosion and baking sun. The result is miles of coulees that are unlike anything seen in other regions of the country.
