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.
Did You Know?
The two box elder trees in the Nez Perce camp area at Bear Paw Battlefield are the same trees that were there in 1877. Over the years they have died back or been burnt, but these hardy members of the maple family always grow back.
