The best camping near Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument guide

Overview

About

Ever heard of Custer's last stand? This is where it happened—welcome to Little Bighorn Battlefield.

In 1876, Custer and his army lost their lives to Lakota and Cheyenne warriors. Now, you can explore the plains and imagine the battle unfolding. The easiest option? Download the park's audio tour and listen to it on the 4.5-mile drive around the park. The soldiers' and warriors' firsthand accounts make the fight come alive. Along the way, stop to see the Last Stand Hill and the site of the Native American village.

After your drive, head to the visitor center. Check out artifacts from the fighters, and listen to a ranger give a Battle Talk. If the weather isn't cooperating, stick around for the historical video. If you're bringing little ones, check out the Junior Rangers program. Feel like hiking? The Deep Ravine trail is a beautiful walk through the prairie. The park is open year round; be sure to bundle up during the winter.

Little Bighorn is especially beautiful at night—the Montana stars are spectacular. Check them out from your campsite at the many local campgrounds. Nearby, you can fish the Bighorn River or hike the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area.
