Red Lodge Travel Tips

Red Lodge Vacation Rentals Are Popular All Year-Round

Carbon County, Montana is home to the city of Red Lodge. Accessible by Interstate 90, State Highways 212 and 310 or from Billings International Airport, the area attracts vacationers all year-round for its outdoor life. The area is known for its summer and winter outdoor sports. Red Lodge lodging is ideally placed for visiting Gallatin National Forest and Yellowstone National Park.

Red Lodge Cabins Are Where Visitors Wonder Where to Start

There is so much to do within a short distance of Red Lodge vacation rentals that visitors will find the hardest decision will be where to start. To explore the town itself, visitors are recommended to take a leisurely stroll through local sites such as the old jail, now the Municipal Pool, where the only official hanging took place. Make your way through "Old Town," the center of town life in the 1800s. At 317 S. Broadway, you'll find the home of an infamous local bootlegger. At 1 North Broadway is on the National Historic Register as the site of the town’s first bank. The Pollard on Broadway was a hotel that boasts such historical figures as Calamity Jane and Buffalo Bill among its guests.

Many visitors will go to the Beartooth Highway for a scenic drive. The road takes visitors up to almost 11,000 feet above sea level to take in some of the most spectacular views, from the pine forests to remote alpine tundra. Along the route, watch for the local residents which include both black and grizzly bears, bobcats, deer, elk, moose, and mountain lions. At the summit, visitors are rewarded with glacial cirques and mirrored clear mountain lakes.

On the edge of Yellowstone National Park is the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. The highway stretches from Cody WY to Crandall WY and is approximately 65 miles. Ideally, start your drive with a visit to Cody, WY with some whitewater rafting. You can also visit a rodeo or enjoy some fly fishing. At Dot Flats cattle ranch, look out for wildlife such as mule deer and elk. Along the road is Dead Indian Summit Overlook for stunning views of the Absaroka Mountains and Sunlight Basin. At Sunlight Creek Bridge, visitors will drive over the highest bridge in Wyoming and then on to Cathedral Cliffs. Here, stop to enjoy incredible views of the cliffs as well as Table Mountain and Beartooth Butte before ending in Crandall.

Red Lodge Is Perfect to Visit Yellowstone National Park

Of course, no visitors will want to miss the incredible sights and outdoor activities of Yellowstone National Park, famous for its hot springs and world-famous geysers, like Old Faithful. Here, visitors may enjoy activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, climbing, whitewater rafting, wildlife watching, fishing and hunting. In winter, the park is a haven for skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling.

There are a variety of towns to explore while staying at Red Lodge cabins. The former mining town of Beercreek is working hard to preserve its heritage, saving the former bank building dating from the early 1900s and the town cemetery. Nearby is the site of the Smith Mine Disaster of 1943 where the abandoned mine remains close to the highway as a memorial to those who died under the rolling sage covered hills. Near Fromberg, visit the Wahkpa Chu’gn Archaeological Site for a tour of the old buffalo jumps. There are a variety of museums around the area such as the American Computer Museum, Beaverhead County Museum, Big Horn County Historical Museum, Big Sandy Historical Museum, the Blaine County Museum Carbon Country Museum, Castle Museum and the Children’s Museum of Bozeman, among the many cultural trips available.
