Missouri River Country
Everything about Missouri River Country is big. During peak migration periods, millions of waterfowl fill the sky above the many lakes and reservoirs that dot Montana's northeast corner. Giant Fort Peck Lake has 1,500 miles of shoreline, and the C. M. Russell Wildlife Refuge sprawls across a million acres of prairie wilderness. This area is as rich in history as it is in wildlife. The West's fur trade era has been preserved at Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site, and the romance of the Old West lives on in the Little Rocky Mountains, a favorite hangout of Butch Cassidy and Kid Curry.
