Park Fun

A visit to Big Hole is not only educational, it can be a lot of fun. In the summer you can help the park rangers put up and take down our tipi. There are all kinds of animals to see including our moose. You can hike, you can put on type of clothing that the Nez Perce and Soldiers wore here in 1877.

There are plenty of things to touch and hold on our Visitor Center touch table.

Bear Paw Battleground, near present day Chinook, Montana, is one of the most significant sites associated with the Nez Perce campaign. It was the place where Chief Joseph gave his surrender speech, which stirred the nation.
