Missouri River Country

Northeast Montana

Northeast Montana

A distinct region onto itself, this place of the Great Plains harbors unique landscapes. Grand scenes composed of geologic wonder unfold here. Space, much of it undisturbed, is its greatest commodity and an unending sky delivers a feeling of no borders or confinement where one can stretch and breathe. This is Montana’s Missouri River Country.


Favorite things to do

The topography of Northeastern Montana has been compared the badlands of the Dakotas: semi-dry, sparse landscape that seems to stretch forever. But it is this arid, undeveloped countryside that holds some of Montana’s richest historical gems.


Paleontological finds dating back millions of years have been located in Montana’s badlands. The 1902 discovery of the remains of a Tyrannosaurs Rex put Northeastern Montana on the paleontological map and was followed by the discovery of an even larger Tyrannosaurus Rex in 1990. Local museums, such as the Fort Peck Powerhouse Museum are great places to study Northeastern Montana’s oldest inhabitants.

Lewis and Clark

The region is also famous for the Missouri River, a major transportation source for the 19th century Corps of Discovery. Lewis and Clark traversed the region in dugout canoes in 1804, years before fur trappers, ranchers and other pioneers made their homes in this area. The Corps’ exploration of the West opened this area up to settlement, bringing with it fur trading companies and other commercial ventures. It also seeded the way for other opportunists, such as the outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, who frequented the Montana badlands. The Outlaw Trail, which was used by gunslingers and robbers from Canada to Mexico, intersected Montana’s most eastern, undeveloped regions.

Great People. Amazing Views. Beautiful Landscapes

Today Northeastern Montana is populated by numerous small towns, many of which can trace their origins to the region’s earliest settlers. Towns such as Glasgow, an early railroad town, Wolf Point, an old fur trading post and Scobey, a turn-of-the-century wayside stop just south of the Canadian border, offer a glimpse into Montana’s early beginnings.
