Nez Perce National Historical Park offers a unique National Park experience. With thirty-eight sites in four states, the park encompasses sites across the traditional homeland of the nimíipuu (Nez Perce). There are activities at the parks visitor centers at Lapwai, and Big Hole National Battlefield. The Blaine County Museum in Chinook MT offers displays and information for the Bears Paw Battlefield. Join us in experiencing the story of the nimíipuu.

If you need some ideas on what to do while you are here in Nez Perce country, we can give you some ideas with some outdoor and indoor activities as well as some insight into what else you can see in the Lewis-Clark Valley.

Bear Paw Battlefield is the last clash of arms between the Nez Perce fleeing the US Army in 1877. It's also the the eastern most site of the park.
