A jet charter airport in Wolf Point has visitors landing in the northeastern part of Montana, home to the Sioux and Assiniboine nations.
The Missouri River flows south of the community, and the trails in the area were walked by Lewis and Clark in 1805. Today, Wolf Point is a trade point for local farmers and ranchers. The Fort Peck reservation acts as a center for the local Sioux and Assiniboine. The oldest traditional pow-wow in Montana, the Wadopana Pow-Wow, is held in Wolf Point each August.
Traverse the Big Sky Byway route to see where the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers meet. The route follows part of the Regina-Yellowstone Trail that travelers use to reach Yellowstone National Park. Running between Terry and Wolf Point, the well-marked route’s north-south orientation means that the two hour journey crosses diverse terrain. Rolling prairies, jutting scoria buttes and grass and sand badlands can all be seen out of the car windows.
Though in close proximity, the towns along the route offer varying, natural attractions. There is excellent fishing and hunting in the Terry area along the Yellowstone River. Explore weathered volcanic rocks and collect moss agate near the Terry Badlands Wilderness Study Area. The town of Circle has exceptional big game hunting, and is also known for its extensive paleontological research. Wolf Point’s perch on the Missouri River provides quality fishing, and views of the historic Lewis and Clark Bridge.
